“The whole show was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but to take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms.”
—Gene Roddenberry (on the “Star Trek Philosophy”)
“A quarter of a century after Lt Uhura boldly went where no African American had gone before, her protogee returned the favor. Before blasting into orbit aboard the Endeavour in 1992, Dr Mae Jemison, the first woman of color in space, called actress Nichelle Nichols to thank her for the inspiration. And then she made a promise.
Despite NASA’s rigid protocol, Jemison would begin each shift with a salute that only a Trekkie could appreciate. “Hailing frequencies open,” she could be heard repeating throughout the eight day mission.”
Gatsby? What Gatsby?
he went on to captain the U.S.S. Enterprise… but that was another life
“She will not long survive the evil that now spreads from Mordor. The light of the Evenstar is failing. As Sauron’s power grows, her strength wanes.”

Dude. This is crazy. Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846. John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946. Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860. John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960. Both were particularly concerned with civil rights. Both wives lost a child while living in the White House. Both Presidents were shot on a Friday. Both Presidents were shot in the head. Now it gets really weird. Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy. Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln. Both were assassinated by Southerners. Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson. Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808. Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908. John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839. Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939. Both assassins were known by their three names. Both names are composed of fifteen letters. Now hang on to your seat. Lincoln was shot at the theater named “Ford.” Kennedy was shot in a car called “Lincoln” made by “Ford.” Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials. And here’s the “kicker”: A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland. A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe. AND……………….: Lincoln was shot in a theater and the assassin ran to a warehouse… Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and the assassin ran to a theater…
Wow I don’t ever remember posting this. That’s so weird.
And this is what happens when a masterfully crafted katana collides with a masterfully crafted longsword.
Suck it, katana
suck my fuckin’ diiiick
Aren’t katanas and longswords made for different overall purposes tho
Katanas are slasher weapons made for cutting masterfully through human flesh so obviously it’s not gonna get through a fucking longsword which is really fucking thick and heavy and made for beating the shit out of people as well as hacking at armour
A katana would slice the shit out of you guys so idk what the fuck you’re so smug about
this is basically like driving a ferarri into a tank.
Now /that’s/ a metaphor
That’s the best metaphor ever. Hands down. (With a really WTF mental image, too. Hopefully no one actually TRIES to illustrate said metaphor.)
