#literally what happened with Fiika and Arcann#I had her all set up to romance Koth#but then#BOAT#more like ship#more like Arcann’s flagship#okay more like Arcann in general#look at me finding a way to relate the One-Armed Wonder to a boat#sidenote do you think if he didn’t have his robo-arm and was in a rowboat#would he paddle himself in circle#someone better read these damn tags because im fucking hilarious#but seriously tho#like#Arcann in a rowboat going in circle with Vaylin and Thexan#and one of the other two says#we’re going in circles#and the other one says#WHY DID WE LET OUR ONE-ARMED BROTHER ROW

Episode 7 of Yuri on Ice allowed us to experience the paradox known as Schrödinger’s Kiss, where the characters simultaneously kissed and didn’t kiss as long as the actual frame of their lips touching was not shown. The result depends entirely on the observer of the event.


Nemi ships

Lake Nemi, Italy

1st century CE

The Nemi Ships were two ships, with one ship larger than the other, built by the Roman emperor Caligula in the 1st century AD at Lake Nemi. Although the purpose of the ships is only speculated on, the larger ship was essentially an elaborate floating palace, which contained quantities of marble, mosaic floors, heating and plumbing such as baths among its amenities. Both ships featured technology long thought to be recent inventions. It has been stated that the emperor was influenced by the lavish lifestyles of the Hellenistic rulers of Syracuse and Ptolemaic Egypt.

There is considerable speculation regarding why the emperor Caligula chose to build two large ships on such a small lake. From the size of the ships it was long held that they were pleasure barges, though, as the lake was sacred, no ship could sail on it under Roman law implying a religious exemption.
