failed but a for effort

“No effort is ever wasted, although some pay dividends later than you think. Do not imagine that you "wasted your time” because something didn’t turn out right. There is no such thing as “waste” in the Universe. Everything – everything – yields benefit. It’s true. And your life will show you this. So don’t decry the “effort that failed.” All things lead to your highest good. You just may not know it yet.“ — Neale Donald Walsch

I tried anon, i really did. I hope this passes for ‘soft and cute’ lmao. Poor Frisk can’t catch a break.

and here’s a bonus panel as if this thing wasn’t long enough already:

Never mind the “Who shot first?” stuff; THIS is the defining moment of the Han Solo character:

Everyone else was just like: “Oh, fuck: It’s Vader!” and standing around in shock and terror when Vader was revealed. Even Chewie.

Most people, I suspect, would have that reaction. 

Meanwhile, Han’s first reaction, instinctively, in less than a second, was to grab a gun and try to flat-out end the guy.

He failed, of course. But God Damn if you can’t appreciate the effort.

If all this was a work of fiction… the guys who go to nationals would be the protagonists, and the rest of us would just be extras. But, regardless… we got to play… volleyball.

There’s a reason why Neil deGrasse Tyson’s views on race are completely overlooked and why even I was never aware of them until recently. Science nerds will make a billion photosets and quotes about the new Cosmos and speak on everything Neil gets into even the science of the fucking Mjölnir hammer from Thor or the science of Krypton. Anything Neil speaks on as a prominent figure in science gets circulated. But just like Albert Einstein’s celebrity scientist status had no effect on his vocal views against antiblack racism in America [and it’s now 2014 with the same shit different faces], Neil’s anti-racism views are also suppressed, downplayed, or ignored. It shows that the science community at large has a long way to go in terms of accepting the problem of racism and sexism it has and fails to bring to light as it does so frequently with more efforts to many other political subjects.
