"It’s just a job. An extremely well paid job. A job you successfully complete on a regular basis and no one has ever found out. No one knows about our profitable little side-line. Did I mention how well paid it was? This will pay off all of our school fees until we graduate with plenty left over for any future decisions. So we won’t need to do this again. Now put on your big boy pants and remember you are a professional. Or at least semi-professional. Get in there, hit them hard, you know you have the skills to take them and then get out. Our inside guy is waiting for you. Now do your damn job Stiles and make us rich”

Or the one where college students Stiles and Isaac become the entertainment at the pre-wedding party for Iron Man and Captain America, much to everyone's complete and utter astonishment. Except for JARVIS. Who is a little shit.

After Ultron, Tony distanced himself from the team. It was hard not to, what with the muttered comments, frosty silences and threatening glares. He didn't expect that would mean he'd get a visit from a certain soldier.

Online retail is very attractive to apartment-dwelling urbanites who may not have a car and whose nearby stores probably charge higher prices than the malls out in the suburbs. But this customer base has always posed a problem for Amazon and its ilk: Where do you leave the packages?

Amazon has previously put communal lockers in retail stores, but unless you live a block or two away from a locker location, there’s no real convenience.

So why not take the same approach that Amazon has taken on some college campuses and put lockers right where its customers actually live? The retail giant is reportedly hard at work installing lockers in large apartment complexes with the hope of having them working by this holiday season.

So far, sources tell The Wall Street Journal, landlords have signed deals that put lockers in buildings that have a total of 850,000 units, meaning that well over a million Americans could be covered by this holiday season. The lockers cost $10,000 to $20,000 to purchase, which is about half the cost of similar systems from companies that aren’t Amazon.

For the companies that manage these properties, the advantages are obvious. Instead of paying workers to deal with and sort packages for hours every day, they delegate that to Amazon, which places other carriers’ packages inside locker spaces too. The lockers are an amenity that some residents will use a lot more often than a pool, which can be used to sell new residents on signing up.

The chief executive of one property management company in Maryland that has around 68,000 units likes the idea, and is starting with lockers in four buildings.

“I think about how much money I spend on my amenity spaces and all of a sudden we were in a situation pre-Amazon hub where we had boxes stacking up,” he told the WSJ.

'The room lapses back into silence again, and you focus on trying to breathe. There was no understandable reason as to why you felt slightly uneasy, but even more so no reason as to why this uneasiness was not an unwelcomed feeling. The knot in your stomach was tight, constricting your breathing though it had no physical effect on your lungs, and yet it wasn’t uncomfortable. It was accompanied by a warmth, too ridiculous to be justifiable and yet too welcomed to be ignored. Breathing, thankfully, is something you remember how to do.'
