Star Trek is nearly 50 years old now and it’s been around for so long because I think it offers hope for us as a species. The thing people have always been attracted to (with Star Trek) is the idea that we might live beyond this age of conflict and uncertainty. And it’s not only that, but it’s also the ability to work together and live in a world where everyone is accepted no matter who you are.
The original series with Gene Roddenberry was incredibly progressive. It started barely 20 years after the end of World War II, with a Japanese officer aboard the Enterprise, a black woman in charge of an entire division, and a Russian on board—albeit in subordinate roles, but it was an incredibly progressive move. It offered this utopian idea of cooperation and that’s always going to be something to strive toward until we actually achieve it. In that respect, Star Trek will never go out of fashion. —

It’s actually a good thing that the zombie apocalypse starts in Florida because then the zombies only have one way to go and that’s straight up into trigger happy redneck territory. I give it two weeks before monster trucks and mullets save us.
can we talk about how this is still getting notes
it’s in the grate thing at the bottom of the sink where I can’t get to it
crawling in circles as it oozes it’s white guts out splits in both sides of it’s shell
dripping onto the metal of the sink and getting them all over it’s legs and crawling through the goo as it drags itself around and around and around like a wounded dog or a clown on a two-wheeled trike.
I am leaving a note that says “sorry, I couldn’t get this roach out and it wouldn’t die” and going to my room, hiding under three layers of quilts and not coming out until the roaches are HIDING AND GONE for the day
HOLD THE PHONE IT’S STILL NOT DEAD
I killed one of them and now it’s oozing into the sink *sobs*
I walked into my kitchen and saw three full-grown cockroaches and a smaller full-grown one of a different breed
just crawling around really obviously in places that were really hard to kill them
I don’t think I’m hungry anymore
I am sorry to spam your dash with text posts
*PUNCHES THE AIR IN JOY BECAUSE HECK YES THAT NEW GUNNERKRIGG PAGE HECK YES*
I’m considering going to bed before my dad gets back from work
which leads us to the fact that my dad works really strange hours.
He got back at 1am yesterday and that was bizarrely early.
