Sailor Gundam

(no subject)

From this post at fanficrants:

Maybe [Tigger] made sure that he was the only Tigger by systematically eliminating every last one of his people.

Imagine a dark, blood-spattered hallway, strange silhouettes littering the floor, one lone tigger curled in a corner trying to keep as much of himself in the shadows as he can, knowing that every breath he draws could be his last, while a haunting melody echoes off the mildewed walls...

The wonderful thing about Tiggers...

Adam Selzer takes Chicago tourists on a 'ghost investigation'

"...to get to the old well... one has to cross over a couple of wide streams in the woods. Getting a dozen people across was quite a fun wilderness adventure.

It also led to an easy joke.

"All right, folks," I said. "We're now going to violate the first major rule of ghost busting. We're going to have to cross the streams."

So we did.

And that's why I still smell like marshmallows."

There is no context. Only Zule.

LIKE. ANTS!

From drownedinink's recent post in which he discusses the books he's reading..

Moses: So...so you're going to kill many innocent people, who mostly have nothing to do with our slavery, to punish this ruler whose actions you're controlling anyway? That...that's...
God: WELL, YES, BUT THE PEOPLE RESPOND BEST TO JERKS. JESUS WILL DO ALRIGHT WITH THIS MESSAGE OF LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING, BUT PEOPLE WILL ONLY REALLY START TO LISTEN TO THIS PAUL FELLOW, AND BELIEVE ME HE WILL BE, WELL, A TREMENDOUS ASSHOLE. AND IF ONLY YOU COULD SEE THIS PHENOMENON CALLED "REALITY TELEVISION" FROM OVER 2,000 YEARS FROM NOW...I MEAN, THE SHALLOW, BRAINDEAD JERKS ON "THE REAL WORLD" WILL BE BAD ENOUGH, BUT THEN THEY WILL HAVE TO HAVE ALL THESE DYSFUNCTIONAL FREAKS ON SHOWS LIKE "WIFE SWAP." AND IT WON'T EVEN BE IRONIC LIKE THE "JERRY SPRINGER SHOW"; DO THEY ACTUALLY THINK PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO RELATE TO THESE HOWLING PRICKS? BUT I DIGRESS...MOSES, ON THE LAST TIME I WILL CHANGE PHAROAH'S MIND AGAIN, AND HE WILL PURSUE YOUR PEOPLE, WHICH WILL GIVE ME AN EXCUSE TO PART THE RED SEA FOR YOU. THEN WHEN PHAROAH AND HIS ARMY FOLLOW, I'LL DROWN THEM ALL! LIKE ANTS IN A PUDDLE! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! MOSES, CAN YOU IMAGINE IT?! LIKE ANTS! ANTS! HAHAHAHA! ALL DYING LIKE HELPLESS, WORTHLESS, VILE ANTS!
Moses: E...everything's going to be all right. I'll do whatever you say. Nobody has to get hurt, okay?
God: LIKE. ANTS!

Context is a new interpretation of Exodus QWP...

Why Celtic Studies *is* a useful major!

me: I feel like an evil overlord, intent upon taking over the world...through grammar: "Mutation after declensional forms" isn't exactly threatening. might actually strike fear into the hearts of world leaders.

starlit_kitty: oooh yes, you may have just discovered a new way to strike fear and terror into the world and prevent the need for those pesky embargos and political actions - simply make them conjugate their Medieval Irish verbs and translate their infixed pronouns and im sure we'll see a positive upswing in the general well-being of the planet.

Because I *am* a sadist and I *like* making your brains hurt...

...I will share with you the awfulness that made my brain hurt this morning, namely, this:

OK, so, in Battlestar Galactica, old and new, we know, because we've seen it, that the refugees packed into the Rag Tag Fugitive Fleet™ still eat meat. (And yes, I know, it might just be made to look like meat, but I prefer Occam's Razor for fan speculation -- if it looks like meat, assume it's meat 'til they say otherwise).

This implies that somewhere in the RTFF, there are ships dedicated to animal husbandry and the processing of recently slaughtered animal flesh. We will set aside for the moment any question of the practicality of raising animals in closed-system environments and just assume that they collect the methane and burn it for energy or something.

So anyway...and here's the awfulness...would Colonials call such ships "cattlestars"?
