The movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier includes a terrorist organization from the Marvel universe called Hydra. During the movie one of the characters whispers the catchphrase "Hail Hydra" to another Hydra member in a serious but notably awkward manner.

Not long ago I spotted a link shared from one of the cosplay Facebook pages that I follow.
It was about a Japanese Meme, which roughly translates to “Special Feeling”.
According to tumblr lore- “For people wondering what the hell this is, its a Japanese meme from a recent TV broadcast where a weather reporter was asking people on the street how the snow made them feel. The young couple was asked and the man blurted out “When you’re with your lover and it’s snowing, you are just ... read more
