    Haha, I love Hugo but my guess was he enjoyed the role too much.

Just so you know where each smaller plane in a giant bomber is heading to, it's written in GIANT WHITE LETTERS.

    LoL! Sweet....Not to mention that Hydra guys like to die for they boy club and redhead leader - so why do they have ejection seats anyway on those tiny bomber planes?

        they probably kept the technology for military use, it looked like the SHIELD hover-carrier in the comic

      If a large gun turns to point straight at you, just keep talking and don't bother to move.

                War-changing, super-powered energy weapons will be completely forgotten after the war is over, and thus not effect the course of history in any way.

                  A shield made of a metal specifically said to cancel out all vibrations will be completely impervious to energy weapons (which can otherwise blow down a wall).

                  If the giant bomber is going to crash, don't bother taking one of many smaller planes to escape.

                      Being a smart ass and dropping a flag on the ground will not get your ass chewed out. Instead you will be rewarded!

                          Even though the villains are German, they found it to be a genius idea to clearly label each of the bombs with the name of the city they were going to hit in PLAIN ENGLISH.

                            For the mentioned citizens of those cities to know whats comming while watching the sky. "Hey buddy look! Do you think it is some kind of air express mail?" "Naa, it's a swastika candy bomber. Nothing to worry about"

                          Apparently Hitler allowed a lot of autonomy from his top secret weapons research facilities, even when it doesn't appear to be doing the job and kills three government inspectors, Hitler's only possible thought process for not shutting down Hydra must have been "I have no idea what is going on at Hydra, but at least it's evil".

                            Hydra's wall defenses have slopes just in case you want to ride your motorcycle off of it.

                                If you commandeer one laser tank, you can easily overpower the rest of the base.

                                  Confidence replaces skill, but only for US-Americans. The rest of the worlds needs years of hard training and study to compete.

                                All the events that happened in the movies will lead to a modern day world that is in nearly every way identical to our own.

                                              Dropping barbed wire on a fellow soldier is a funny practical joke and will not get you a court-martial.

                                                    When you are given a serum that makes you as strong and fast as a human being can possibly be, your job is to pretend to punch Hitler in the face instead of actually doing it for real.

                                                      It would be preposterous for Nazis to ever speak German. It is common knowledge that they speak flawless English, especially when conversing amongst themselves.

                                                        Captain America's master plan was to get captured so 3 non-super soldiers could attack Hydra's base through an obviously undefended window with conventional weapons.

                                                            Captain America is a white, blond haired, blue eyed man who's only goal is to kill and even die for his country if need be, and his enemy is a man who turned on Adolf Hitler. Even when Captain America is asked by a Jewish scientist if he wants to kill Nazis he refuses to answer.
