There's One Major Plot Hole In 'Avengers: Endgame' & We're Desperate For Answers
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsFirst things first, 'Avengers: Endgame' is an absolute masterpiece. Don't get me wrong, this plothole I'm going to talk about doesn't make the movie any less amazing. In fact, I didn't even notice it till I watched it for the second time. No one did. I guess we were all just blown away by the epicness of it all. But, once the dust settles, and I could think clearly about everything I had just witnessed, there was only one question that popped into my head. Be warned, there are SPOILERS AHEAD! If you are part of the select few who haven't watched 'Avengers: Endgame' yet and want to go into it without any spoilers, STOP READING right here! Don't say you weren't warned. Don't go crying in the comments about how I ruined your experience by giving out spoilers. You're the idiot if you keep on reading from here on out without watching the movie. © Marvel Studios Okay, now that the spoiler alert is out of the way, let's get right to it. The two main characters get very different endings. One, Iron Man, gets to save everyone and finally rest while, the other, Captain America gets his happy albeit kind of selfish ending. Iron Man's journey has come full circle from the events of 'The Avengers.' All he wanted to do from the first Iron Man movie onwards was save the world and he finally did it. He lost his life in the process and that's just one of the reasons it is a huge sacrifice. He also gave up his perfect life (with Pepper and Morgan) so that everyone else who had lost their loved ones could get another chance at happiness. The perfect story arc for his character who started off as selfish and arrogant. © Marvel Studios As for Captain America, he has always been the selfless hero who puts everyone else ahead of himself. His own needs are always secondary and every single decision he takes is for the greater good. He is infallible in that sense and is everything a hero and the leader of the Avengers should stand for. So, you could forgive him for being selfish for once and choosing to stay in the past with Peggy Carter after returning all the Infinity Stones. No complaints here either. But then, old Captain America shows up on the bench where Bucky, Sam and Professor Hulk are waiting for him to return through the Quantum tunnel. At first, you enjoy this scene with Bucky's knowing smile and Sam's shocked expression when Cap passes his shield to him. Then you see Cap getting his dance with Peggy and the movie ends on the perfect note. The first Avenger is also the last one you see on screen. Can't see anything wrong with these scenes, can you? Well, there is one problem. How the hell did old Captain America end up on that bench? Answer this question and I will be forever grateful. © Marvel Studios The answer is not simple. Let me break it down into multiple reasons supporting this ending and why they aren't possible: The Rules Of Time Travel Every movie uses what it considers it's own rules for time travel. 'Avengers: Endgame' did the same thing. The rules are simple. Time is relative. So, if you go into the past and change something, your present won't change. You will be creating an alternate timeline. The past will become your future, your present will become your past which can't be changed by the new future you're creating, as Professor Hulk eloquently puts it. © Marvel Studios The Ancient One adds to this saying that when you remove a single Infinity Stone from a particular timeline, you create an alternate timeline where that stone ceases to exist. Professor Hulk has a solution for this. Return every single Infinity Stone to the exact time they took it for. That makes sense and that's where Captain America's final mission leads him. To return every Infinity Stone to the exact moment in time they took them from. If he just showed up on the Quantum tunnel at the end of the movie as Old Captain America, things would have been fine. Captain America Gets Benched It's safe to assume that Captain America is proficient enough to return every Infinity Stone to the right time and place. After that, he decides to live out his life with Peggy Carter. Basically, take the long road to the future. But, how would a timeline where there are two Captain Americas suddenly merge at the end, where he shows up on the bench in the original timeline? It's just not possible. © Marvel Studios If they let him live his life with Peggy Carter in a world where he dismantles Hydra before it infiltrates SHIELD, rescues Bucky before he can cause so much damage, helps the Avengers defeat Loki and take down Thanos, while still leading a happy life with Peggy, I would have been satisfied. But, he shows up on the stupid bench and ruins this theory. Captain America Has Mastered Time Travel Here's another one. Captain America has become a master at time travel. He makes sure he stays with Peggy Carter but lives a very reserved life without impacting any of the major events that take place in the world since he knows there's another Captain America out there handling stuff. The first problem with this is that Captain America, the bravest and purest Avenger would have to sit back while Hydra infiltrates SHIELD, Bucky dismantles governments and murders Tony's parents among others and all the other gruesome things that take place in the main timeline without doing anything. That's not the Captain America we all know and love. © Marvel Studios But, even if he does manage to do that, there's another problem with this theory. Even the smallest of changes could have a huge impact on the timeline and hence create an alternate one. For example, he still has to eat. That's food that would have otherwise gone to someone else. All the food he has eaten over 70-80 years. That's enough to create a new timeline. Time travel isn't as simple as you'd think. The One That Might Just Be True Here's the last one. It's the most plausible of the lot. Still pretty unbelievable. But, it could be true. So, Cap returns all the Infinity stones and then lives his life with Peggy Carter. Once he's done with that life, he takes out the Quantum time travel device Tony Stark created and uses it to travel back to the main timeline with his shield. But, instead of showing up on the new Quantum tunnel he shows up near it. © Marvel Studios He then walks to the place he remembers his friends were waiting for and sits on that bench. That's when everyone sees him and everything else happens as we see at the end of the movie. Although highly implausible, this is the only thing that makes sense. Is there any other explanation? Please help me! I'm losing my mind…
The wait for everyone's favourite (yeah, its already assumed that you enjoy it) 'Game Of Thrones' is about to end soon, because Winter, which may be coming to an end in our world, is yet to come in April. So many teasers, leaked pictures, millions of BTS shots later, fans are desperately waiting for just one thing, ie.- the final trailer to drop on our heads! However, seems like that's not happening just yet. HBO has dropped a video montage of what we should expect this year and there was a tiny footage from 'GOT' as well. My heart stopped when seeing this new Euphoria and The Righteous Gemstones footage and started again at Watchmen. 2019 is my new favorite year. #HBO2019 pic.twitter.com/ybbE1i1Ffb — HBO (@HBO) February 24, 2019 You saw that, right? When Arya Stark finally gets to behold the magnificence of Khaleesi's dragons (we're assuming it's Drogon here) you can't help but long to see more, but unfortunately, the shot brutally cuts then and there. Obviously, GOT fans are now officially pissed with HBO and want the makers to stop trying everyone's patience and just drop the final trailer already. a dream come true for little Arya Stark #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/FauoVIALGf — arwen ðï¸ kh3 spoilers (@drogonsdaughter) February 24, 2019 HBO when we ask for a trailer for season 8 or game of thrones pic.twitter.com/8cJQAdsJXn — Zuhaila (@Zuuzuux) February 20, 2019 me banging on hbo's door and begging for the goddamn game of thrones trailer pic.twitter.com/XTk3aoXsee — âµ chi âµ (@starksdany) February 18, 2019 We're like really tired and upset and when will HBO get a clue about our desperation?

Can it happen soon enough?
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAre you trying to get fit but are confused where and how to begin because of the contradictory information on the internet? I can understand your predicament because I was in a similar position some years ago when I started my fitness journey. The funny thing is that the amount of misinformation has increased with social media fitness celebrities and uninformed gurus misleading general public into buying their services. In this article, I am going to list down the things that you should and shouldn't do when you first start your fitness journey. So, let's dive right into it. 1. Don't Starve Yourself Dieting to lose fat does not mean starving yourself to death. On the other hand, eating to bulk does not mean oats, chicken breast and brown rice 5 times a day, 7 days a week. In most cases, a small caloric deficit of 300-500 calories does the trick and you do not have to change the way you eat drastically. You can simply start tracking your food and cut out unnecessary calories like excess cooking oil, sugar, unnecessary snacks and junk. You can easily create a deficit to start seeing results. Not going too low on calories become even more important when you are trying to be fit and not just lose weight. You need energy to train and eating too little will only be detrimental to your goals. Calories should always be higher so you have the necessary energy to recover from your training. Don't fall into the trap of eating chicken and broccoli every day because your gym trainer says it's “healthy”. © Thinkstock Images 2. There's No One Magic Diet With the rise in the popularity of social media fitness coaches, nutritional zealotry is on a rapid rise as well. Different diets are preached as better than others when it comes to achieving different fitness goals and carbs are blamed for almost everything that is bad out there in the world. While in reality individual application under proper context is what makes a diet best for someone. Not because of a magic percentage of protein, carbs and fats. Want to lose weight? Eat in a caloric deficit which can sustain your training with protein intake optimised. The ratio of carbs to fat doesn't really matter. Try not to go too low in either carbs or fat. Want to gain muscle? Eat in a slight caloric surplus with protein intake optimised. The ratio of carbs to fat still doesn't matter. 3. Don't Play The Number Game People often come to me and say, “I have twenty kilos to lose. Can you help me?” My answer typically is - 'No'. The reason being that most people do not have any idea about how much fat they are holding in their body and just come up with up a number that they think they should lose. Instead of trying to lose fat, you should focus on becoming fit. Obsessing over a number is what makes most people give up when they don't see a scale weight progress. In reality, being fit is a lot more than just losing the number of kilos that you have in mind. Focus on building muscle, improving your health markers, improving your quality of life, being fit functionality rather than just trying to lose some weight, the calculations of which are almost certainly incorrect. © Pixabay 4. Be Realistic Always be realistic about your end goal. Most people make the mistake of thinking that once they lose the excess fat, they'll end up looking like John Abraham. While in reality, no matter how hard you diet, you won't be as muscular as you think unless you've already spent some time building mass. Also, if you diet (starve yourself) just to lose fat and don't pay attention towards quantifying your nutrition or strength training, you'll end up skinny-fat, weak and unhealthy instead of ripped or shredded. You might have “abs” but they won't be very impressive; without a doubt, you'll have better pancreas definition than anything else. You would need to bulk and cut at least 3-4 times to look like a fitness athlete that you want to. Conclusion Don't make the same mistakes that every beginner makes. Instead of following a cookie cutter plan from a gym trainer or so called fitness expert who promises to 'transform' you in a matter of weeks, a gradual, more personalized approach suited to our needs, preferences and lifestyle is the way to do things. Don't gamble with your health by trying to force things.
