“And then?” Jasmine asked. “What then?”
“And then,” Barda said simply, “we will go on.”

Ring Scan 

Scroll down and you can cruise along the icy rings of Saturn. This high resolution scan is a mosaic of images presented in natural color. The images were recorded in May 2007 over about 2.5 hours as the Cassini spacecraft passed above the unlit side of the rings. To help track your progress, major rings and gaps are labeled along with the distance from the center of the gas giant in kilometers.

The alphabetical designation of Saturn’s rings is historically based on their order of discovery; rings A and B are the bright rings separated by the Cassini division. In order of increasing distance from Saturn, the seven main rings run D,C,B,A,F,G,E. (Faint, outer rings G and E are not imaged here.) Four days from now, on November 29, Cassini will make a close flyby of Saturn’s moon Titan and use the large moon’s gravity to nudge the spacecraft into a series of 20 daring, elliptical, ring-grazing orbits. Diving through the ring plane just 11,000 kilometers outside the F ring (image bottom) Cassini’s first ring-graze will be on December 4.

URGENT: If you know anyone traveling to the United States affected by Trump’s Executive Order on immigrants & refugees, please help them reroute their flights THROUGH BOSTON.
It is currently the only city that is reliably guaranteed not to DETAIN or DEPORT anyone based on the order because of an order issued by a judge there earlier this morning.

Sonny Thoughts

Based on this script spoiler posted here by @minidodds​:

Ummmm.

Thought 1: Is Rollins actually blaming a victim of abuse (a mother of an abused child, I’m guessing) for “letting” a man hit a child? Do the SVU writers think victim blaming is better when done by a female character? And can we get one single episode without a “bad” mother? And do Amanda’s issues run that deep, that she thinks every single woman (including herself) is possibly a terrible mother? What the fuck, writers?

Thought 2: Do we really need the male character to explain the cycle of abuse to a woman who’s probably had her fair share or run-ins with abusive assholes? Not to mention, a woman who’s suffered psychological abuse at the hands of her own family? If it were that easy to escape it, why has Amanda been completely unable to cut off her mother and my queen Kim? It’s one thing to have Amanda being judgmental about addiction (also troubling, but more consistent with a recovering addict who is trying hard to stay on the straight and narrow), but this? And, again, a man with no children chimes in to set her straight? What the fuck, writers?

Thought 3: What if the writers are attempting to retcon Sonny as a victim of abuse in his childhood?

(just spitballing here, of course, to balance out all the Barba theories with some Sonny ones)

Depending on how Peter plays that scene and if it doesn’t get cut and then posted as a “deleted scene" a week later, it’s a possibility. The text is somewhat suggestive, isn’t it? “It beats you up on the inside”? This would fit with Sonny’s anger (almost to the point of rage) when working cases with underage victims, and it might also explain why he’s always so sweet to children and teens.

It might clash with his early happy-go-lucky characterization though, and with the fact he’s always painted the picture of a happy family with a bunch of sisters and a dad who loved inflatable Santas. That, plus all the early interviews, when Carisi was first introduced, clearly stating that the “new guy” had a healthy family life, unlike Amaro and Rollins (and Barba). Then again, we have never gotten the slightest solid hint about Sonny’s home life (except when he said he never told his parents he was applying to college), and this type of retcon is nothing unusual for a network drama.

Or, what if Sonny sounds so knowledgeable because one of his sisters has suffered domestic abuse? And he tried to help her? Maybe when he was a teenager himself? What if she’s still struggling? That would be interesting, and it would honor the classic Carisi trait of saying “my sister…” every few minutes.

I’d imagine there’s a chance Sonny is just saying this because, like, he’s read it in a psychology book (also consistent with Sonny’s personality plus the writers’ aversion of giving anyone a personal storyline this season) or he had a friend of a friend etc, but still, he could be speaking from experience.

What do you guys think?

  • me: so starkiller base is a small, snow covered planet orbiting tightly to a pretty large star
  • jj: correct
  • me: but it's covered in snow
  • jj: ...yes
  • me: but like the whole planet is covered in snow. and it doesn't have seasons? it doesn't have an equator? does it get hot? when the band around the middle is carved out, does that change the velocity of the planet? the seasons it has? wouldn't the snow melt when starkiller is being charged and fill the carved part with water? there's oxygen on this planet because they fight on the surface, so it has an atmosphere? a magnetic field? how do the trees stay green and alive if there are no seasons? are there animals? rivers? mountains? what about the watershed system on starkiller? when is it spring?
  • jj: you know... the movie is more about-
  • me: if the entire core of the planet is carved out to be filled with energy from the sun, how does it spin? how did the first order carve out the entire core of a planet? with out a metal core, the magnetic field is gone, throwing off the orbit, and exposing the entire base to harmful radiation-
  • jj: uh...
  • bill nye: nice
  • neil degrasse tyson: nice
