This explains so much about the coffee drinkers I follow

Sometimes I find that its coffee going in that helps to minimize the sarcasm. It powers my filters.

No preservation point here. Just strikes me as funny.

Let’s see you play this sheet music (left folded, mid-turn).

Another reason why quality control is important and why digitize and discard might not be the best strategy for preservation.

Captain Uhura should have been a thing 

(via S.T. Enterprise D Bridge Restoration)

EPIC.

I have a headcanon that Admiral Uhura lived to a ripe old age as the Starfleet Director of Intelligence. And she would have fought and undermined Section 31 long before it was safe to acknowledge its existence. She taught regular symposiums (and not just at the Academy) on universal translators and how despite the technology, you still needed to have living polyglot translators for the hard stuff. 

She was Picard’s Seminar in Translator Algorithms professor for about three classes and advised him to just take Klingon to get the required xenolinguistics credit out of the way. He did, but he still sat in on her class.

She also played in the Vulcan equivalent of a jam band and had a quiet off and on Thing with Spock that McCoy adamantly did not want to hear about. 

There.

Headcanon accepted.

I’d like to see stories like this.

Always reblog…

I’d be tempted to use this excuse in the future. But I don’t have Patrick Stewart’s resume to back it up.

This rings true to me. It’s a good thing to try and see things from someone else’s perspective.

TWISTING CLASSICAL CHARACTERS LIKE DORIAN GRAY INTO A HOMOSEXUAL

Son, you might want to be sitting down for this one.

Dorian Gray was so gay the book was literally used as evidence in the author’s trial for sodomy. 

Tis true about the trial. See this account from Douglas Linder of the University of Missouri Kansas City.

America: Where dudes can get unlimited boner pills that have no other medical use but women can’t get birth control pills that prevent cancers, regulate periods, help with menstrual cramping, prevent break outs, and help with cysts. 

I think it’s time for a woman’s uprising.

If that’s what it takes. It is a fairly disgusting state of affairs, particularly in light of politicians decision to frame birth control pills as “funding recreation.” If they were really against “recreation” then viagra and related drugs would have to go out the window.

The double standards we keep in this country and much of the West really make me scream some days.
