like my brain meat multi-tasking at work.
I just can’t get over the emotion evident on his face here.
To think that…when he visited Carl in his office at Cornell as an applicant and Carl reached back, grabbed one of his books, signed it, and handed it to him…that one day, all too soon, Carl would be gone. And that he, Neil, would be called upon to host a Cosmos reboot.
Oh, the feels, the feels, the sciencey feels!

what the fuck am i watching
What you are watching: inverted video of a person on the underside of a sheet of ice, playing with -air-.
I want to know how the wheelbarrow is anchored.
people dont blog about the princess bride enough
fact: as a little child watching this, my thoughts on this scene were ‘you people are -terrible- at rolling down hills’ because rolling down hills on my side was a thing I liked to do? I was an odd child.
THAT’S A FUCKING STRAIGHT JACKET FOR BABIES WHAT THE FUCK DON’T ADD A LITTLE SMILEY FACE WITH SOME HEARTS AND PUT THE WORD SNUGGLE IN THERE THAT’S HORRIFYING
You guys have clearly never dealt with babies, it’s called swaddling you dumbasses and it helps calm a baby down and it makes it easier for a mother to hold onto/nurse a very fussy baby.
also it makes babies less likely to like poke themselves in their eyes or scratch their faces up with their demon infant nails
seriously, baby nails are incredibly sharp and a baby does not need to claw themselves up
swaddling is an ancient as fuck technique to keep your baby warm, safe, and calm (it simulates being held which helps make babies chill) and this particular invention means swaddling without all the fabric which will help keep babies cooler in warm climates, and also allow for changing diapers and the like without unswaddling them

I WAS NOT EXPECTING THE HEAD TO BODY RATIO TO BE SO CLOSE TO JUST 1:1
First you have Elisa being a badass detective, solving crimes and shit, literally kicking ass all over Manhattan.
Then there’s Demona who goes around with fucking laser guns, who doesn’t give two shits about fucking the city up.
And there’s Fox, who’s a fucking ninja mercenary and goes hand gliding onto mother fucking flying fortresses while fucking pregnant.
Don’t forget Angela, badass in her own right, who will fuck you up if you mess with her family.
And those are just first-tier characters.
There’s also Maria Chavez, latina police chief
Diane Maza, Professor of African Studies at Colombia University who, coincidentally, goes to Nigeria to undergo traditional storyteller training, and mom
Beth Maza, anthropology student
Anastasia Renard, ridiculous biogeneticist who, spoilers, is also the Fae Queen Titania
Hyena, who is completely batshit insane evil, but how often do we get to see truly offputting female villains?
The Weird Sisters, who are basically calling the shots on everyone in the show ever
Princess Katherine, who is a fucking monarch in medieval Scotland, politician, and general all-around decent human towards the gargoyles in a story where xenophobia is a recurring theme
And Margot Yale, who yes kind of sucks as a person but is still an Assistant District Attorney in NYC and shows up multiple times
These are just the ones I pulled of the top of my head! I am leaving out SO MANY FEMALE CHARACTERS, guys! And despite all being able-bodied ladies, they’re different races, personality types, occupations…It’s good stuff.
Gruoch, the historical Lady Macbeth.
Robyn Canmore, aka Hunter, team leader of the “Bad Guys” with her own spinoff comic book.
And then there were all the female gargoyles from clans around the world: Ophelia, Tourquesa Obsidiana, Sora, Una… those just being the ones whose names we learned.
And this still isn’t a complete list.
"Princess Katherine, who is a fucking monarch in medieval Scotland, politician, and general all-around decent human towards the gargoyles in a story where xenophobia is a recurring theme"
A note about Katharine, she absolutely DOES NOT start out decent towards the gargoyles at all. She is fearful of them (mostly because of her father who used them to frighten her into behaving as a child - dick move on his end so it says a lot about him as an “ally” to the gargoyles) and treats them as lesser beings, calling them “beasts”… but she GROWS as a character and ends up a surrogate mother to an entire clan, and she loves them very much. The women of Gargoyles are all far from flawless and they are given plots and growth and character focus, and have as much development and variety as the men.
I now want to rewatch this whole show. <3
No..because they would mess it up, tone the awesome women down, and whitewash the PoC ones. NO.
Legit, I keep saying this.
What Gargoyles needs is someone with deep enough pockets to by the rights and pay the writers/creators to basically make the show they wanted to make before Disney decided to try to turn it into a cash cow, rather than let it be the bad ass series it was.
