If Dr. Who was real, Elon Musk would definitely be the guy who invents cybermen in our timeline

"Final Fantasy?"

Never heard of it

Ohhh you mean the Twinkharness Extended Universe

“How does one hate a country, or love one? … I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary to all that, of giving it a name and ceasing to love where the name ceases to apply?”

— Ursula K. Le Guin (The Left Hand of Darkness)

"…Tell me, Genry, what is known? What is sure, predictable, inevitable—the one certain thing you know concerning your future, and mine?"

"That we shall die."

"Yes. There’s really only one question that can be answered, Genry, and we already know the answer… The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty: not knowing what comes next."

— The Left Hand of Darkness

one of my guilty pleasures is that I haven't fully kicked my reddit habit, mostly because it's still a real good place to get #trek memes

I share these with you, so you don't have to visit reddit yourself

this one ep of this muppets cartoon is really pissing off a lot of chuds. so that's fun :blobcat:

Show thread

@InternetEh @SeanAloysiusOBrien @pantransautie Charles looks at his friend who is a literal Holocaust survivor and tells him mutants just need to show they aren't a threat and are useful and everything will work out :)

periodic reminder that there is a TNG fashion blog called "Fashion It So" and it's a treasure

Daniel Day Lewis nailed the Fedora Hat guy before Fedora Hat guys were even a thing

the plot of Who Framed Roger Rabbit is actually brilliant bc as it unfolds you realize oh shit, they really did destroy public transportation and doom us to a life of sitting in traffic and reading billboards with no alternative. We're living in the world where the bad guys' plan worked. Amazing writing

ST ent food 

I feel like the dinner scene in the pilot episode is actually key to understanding the symbolic values of the characters.

The captain and forgettable-guy both have massive steaks, symbolising red blooded american masculinity.

T'Pol has literally just a salad, explaining she's a vegetarian. As a Vulcan, she is effete and sophisticated, with nuanced knowledge of a much larger universe. But this knowledge is ultimately limiting. She cannot experience the joys of a big steak or other symbols of masculine virility. Indeed, she is so devoid of toxic masculinity that she is actually a girl, on a mission to go where no ~man~ has gone before.

By the end of the episode, the captain realises that knowledge is valuable, but must often also be ignored. Knowledge and logic must always be subordinate to masculine emotion. Virility and the will to dominate must always come first.

Idiocracy, but replace all the replacement theory shit at the beginning with a story about the destruction of the education system and the bipartisan pro-corporate agenda

@Taweret @apLundell

it's funny there's a line somewhere about "nobody has ever seen what's underneath a breen helmet!"

and yet in the literal *first* appearance of the breen ever, when Kira/Dukat liberate that camp, they both steal Breen helmets from guard they knocked out/killed, so presumably they saw what was under those helmets lol?

CrossCode is the perfect blend of retro JRPG aesthetics and modern gameplay ergonomics. I played a very early access version on steam a while ago and really enjoyed it. Now I'm finally getting to play the full version on switch and it is totally living up to its potential.
