galileo was right

Pet headcanons for the paladins

Pidge

  • She would totally get a bird, let’s be real here. 
  • Like a budgie or just a bird that could sit on her shoulder and that she could chat to while she works.
  • She’d probably name him after one of her favourite scientists
  • “You know Galileo can’t talk back, right?” “Shut up you’ll hurt his feelings.”

Shiro

  • He’d probably get something reptilian
  •  Maybe a lizard
  •  Or a turtle, because they’re nice and calm 
  • We all know Shiro could use something zen in his life
  • *deep breath* “Even Franklin listens to me better than you guys.”

Lance

  • A dog
  • I mean Lance grew up in a big family and he and his siblings always wanted one
  • Also dogs are great when you need comfort because they generally respond to tears
  • They helps him work through his homesickness 
  • It makes him feel closer to his family 
  • He always tries to sneak them in everywhere but both Pidge and Keith are allergic
  • Coran and Allura are fascinated by the interesting ritual of ‘fetch
  • “So they pick up a branch you threw and bring it back?” “Yeah, it’s fun!” “But….. why?” “Because it’s fun!”
  • It takes him ages to decide a name because everyone insists his names are ridiculous. 
  • Zigazig Ha is not a name.” “But Spice Girls!” “No.”
  • He ends up compromising with the name Ziggy

Keith 

  • He gets a CAT
  • Who he calls Hunter
  • Because Keith is really original and could not think of another name
  • Ironically Hunter is the most domestic cat you’ll ever meet even though she hisses a lot
  • Never mind ‘fetch’, the Alteans are even more fascinated having her chase a little red light across the floor
  • The rare times she’s awake she follows Keith everywhere
  • She’s awake only like 15% of the time 
  • Ziggy and Hunter don’t like each other because cats/dogs but Hunter and Galileo get on really well
  • Lance is so offended
  • Hunter doesn’t really care about the other animals
  • *hissing* “See she agrees with me, this is a bad idea.”
  • She sleeps on his clothes 
  • “Keith, I know you’re half-galra and everything, but since when do you shed?”

Hunk

  • He gets a whole bunch of hamsters
  • They’re really hard to get by in space but I mean…. they found a cow so anything is possible
  • They kept on escaping in the beginning so now he just lets them run around the castle
  • They have a turf war going on with the mice
  • He names them after his favourite foods from earth
  • “Patty got into an argument with Pasta again.”
  • Everyone is terrified of sitting on all the couches now because they sometimes crawl under the cushions
  • Everyone: *pulls up half of the couch just to sit down*

Middle aged captains!

Send me characters, a ship, and a situation and I’ll write headcanons!

  • the captains started a relationship in their twenties, and after they all graduated they moved into a three bedroom apartment where they stayed for about 10 years until they had the finances to build their dream house (benefits of having six people with well-paying jobs)
  • Terushima is a tattoo artist who is pretty renowned for his work - he has his own tattoo parlor called InkSplatt. Bokuto is a child therapist and he loves working with the younger children. Kuroo is a emergency room surgeon. Ushijima owns a flower shop (Iris Full of Flowers). Daichi is in line to be chief editor of a publishing house. Oikawa is a professional volleyball player (he used to play with Ushijima until Ushi tore his rotator cuff)
  • The house they build is a two-story with three bedrooms, though only two are used on a regular basis. One of those rooms has a custom made bed and such so that it fits all six of them, the other has a smaller bed in case there’s ever a fight, someone gets sick, or they just need a night alone (or for special anniversaries)
  • Surprisingly, it’s Terushima along with Ushijima who got traditional paintings to hang up (they’re huge fans of Ukiyo-e paintings)
  • Terushima painted Oikawa a galaxy on the ceiling that glows in the dark, and it’s really soothing and cool to look at (he got lots of kisses for that)
  • Saturdays are movie date days, and they spend all day curled up together watching movies (one pick per person) if at all possible (sometimes deadlines for Daichi, travelling for Oikawa, and emergencies/late shifts for Kuroo mess that plan up)

A rope is supported at its ends. What shape do you think it assumes? Galileo though parabola, in red. Wrong! Let’s cut Galileo some slack though. The right answer, so called catenary, is very close.

DAVE SCOTT: And we’d like another telephoto lens.
DEKE SLAYTON: Dave, we’re already at our weight limit, you know that.
DAVE SCOTT: I’ve thought of that.  With the new shorter rendez-vous, maybe we could trade some abort propellant.
DEKE SLAYTON: Abort propellant.  For a rake.
DAVE SCOTT: Well, a rake and a lens.

So it turns out Galileo was right: take away the air, and a bowling ball and a feather fall at the same rate.

ht: AM

so my mom is a first grade teacher and one time we were in the car listening to the radio and she turns to me and says “they played a song about Galileo at our school assembly and all the kids knew the words, i didn’t know kids all just KNEW the lyrics to songs like that anymore! is there a song about Galileo on the radio right now?”

i replied that i was pretty sure there weren’t any pop songs about Galilieo and asked if she could remember how the song went and she immediately goes

“I throw my hands up in the air sometimes, saying EH-OHHH, GALILIEO”

Fiction: 'Amongst the Stars' | Hannah McSorely

No one ever really mentioned it. Most of the villagers just thought the boy must’ve been troublesome from a very young age, but nonetheless, found years of punishment a bit extreme… It wasn’t just the length of his sentence; it was the sentence itself that deterred the village from the boy and his family. “Putting a boy in a cage,” they would say, “A baby boy! It’s outrageous.”

            The boy’s parents had heard the gossip and tried their best to make things right, but it was hard to explain the boy being born into a golden cage of his own DNA. It was hard to believe; even as they had witnessed it. They were determined to not let the cage or the other villagers affect the boy they would name, Galileo, but still very small, their worries were cast away as the boy was able to steal the hearts of the village as every other new child had.

About the pope! (Btw he's not considered infallible but ANYWAY) he also called this conference to reevaluate the church's definition of traditional family or w/e with obv hopes of widening acceptance for lgbt people. All we got from it was more room in doctrine for divorcees, but still cool. He's also been pushing for women to be allowed to become deacons and like clearly he's at least a semi progressive pope dealing with a v conservative college of cardinals so those are some kudos to him :)

actually, the pope IS canonically infallible on matters of faith and morals*, it’s called papal infallibility. its a foundational principle of the catholic church, it’s literally heresy to “deny or call into doubt” what the popes says bc he has a direct connection to god

but yeah, pope francis is a hoot. iirc his exact words regarding women and the church was that women/women’s contributions were “more important” than all the men in the vatican. man that mustve really fried their asses LOL

*it used to apply to everything, but the catholic church had to officially amend it after it turned out galileo was right after all, oops!
