After my old iPod being turned off for months, I tried turning it back on to find an old photo. To my surprise, this is what I saw. It hasn’t been on for months and no one had tried to get into it. How is this even possible? How long is that? Can someone from the science or technology side of tumblr please help?

You mentioned in previous post about Shiro flying the castle ship. How can that work if he's not a Royal Altean?
I mean, that’s the part that I’m not sure about, given I’m mostly drawn to it by the thematic implications, but-
Shiro’s arm is basically an energy conduit, right? He’s able to use it to activate specifically locked galra technology and use that purple energy without ill effects (since if the arm alone had hazards to his health we’d have seen side effects by now)
So my theory is, Shiro’s arm is upgraded/modified with technology on the heroes’ end that lets him access the castle’s systems. Not sure if he’d be able to open wormholes or if they’d have to leave that to Allura- since, even if his arm could potentially handle that, it’d probably be hard on him the way repeated wormholing was a strain on Allura in s2e5. At bare minimum, definitely a learning curve but that’s what appeals to me about it: since it’s not like Allura was sitting around twiddling her thumbs and doing nothing before she stepped up into Blue, it’s only fair to see someone trying to do her old job and having a difficult time, and, Black sure doesn’t seem to want Shiro to leave the castle right now.
at max, Coran probably makes a suggestion about how if this keeps happening they’re really going to need to install a fainting couch in the castle’s bridge
Requested by Anon: Hi, I just started watching lab rats elite force and noticed there is an episode about chase building some robotic girls and kaz taking them away so my question is, could you write an imagine about you liking chase and being part of that particular episode?

Warnings: Like two swears, and a bit of insecurity and self-doubt, is that a warning?
edgeworth rigged phoenix’s netflix account (its not phoenix’s netflix account, he’s just a user mooching off of edgeworth’s parent account) out of spite so it’s stuck in “parental lock” mode and phoenix isn’t technologically competent enough to change it back
This is another rambling posts about a Warhammer 40k fan sub-faction.
Lore: As the Eldar Empire fell, Eldar who had avoided the excesses of their civilization were largely spared from the calamity. These Eldar settled on Exodite Worlds and chose a life of manual labor and aesthetic simplicity so as to avoid the decadence of their empire. This left them largely unmolested by the ravages of Slaanesh. However, they did not abandon everything. They simply locked their more advanced technology away until it would be needed. During times of war, these simple agrarians and hunter gatherers break out the more advanced technology as well as the new techniques they have mastered to bring ruin to whoever might threaten harm to their way of life.
Exodite Worlds are strange almost mystical places. Like the infinity circuits of their craftworld brethren, Exodite souls are likewise collected and stored, but instead they are placed within the Exodite World itself. This is called the World Spirit. Exodite Worlds have a strange collection of crystals, standing stones, and spirit stones placed in strategic locations around the planet, almost like circuitry that channels the collective spirits of the dead around the planet. These realms are places where the Spirit World (Warp) and the Material World (realspace) intertwine, and the dead can commune with the living. They are likewise connected to the webway, though these paths are heavily guarded. All this gives them an almost mystical air around their communities.
While they have chosen a seemingly simpler form of existence, this does not mean they are barbarian savages devoid of culture or technology. They have less access to the industry of other Eldar, and thus rely less on wraithbone. Instead, they have learned to harness nature itself. They can grow tools and constructs from wood thanks to their connection with the natural world. This wood while less hardy is more malleable, flexible, and faster healing than wraithbone. They also make use of draconic beasts not only for food, but as transport, beasts of burden, and war mounts. These animals possess thick hides that rival metal armor and have capabilities that would seem impossible for other organic species. The origin of these dragons dates back to before the fall of their empire, and are almost sacred beasts to the Exodites. On top of all this, they still possess caches of weapons from before the fall of the Eldar that rival the capabilities of their more advanced counterparts.
Worldsingers: Unlike their craftworld counterparts who rely largely on wraithbone for their technology, the Exodites are able to shape nature itself. They can breed and harness plantlife to make their structures, tools, and weapons. However, it is not as sturdy as wraithbone, but is more flexible, can repair itself faster, and be shaped much more quickly. Worldsingers are those Exodites who help control this process. In addition, they are able to harness the forces of nature around them, and call upon the elements and the very earth to bring devastation to their foes.
Timesingers: Since the border between the Warp and physical world is thinner on Exodite Worlds, the flow of time is unpredictable. Some Exodite Worlds flow slower or faster than realspace, with a rare few sometimes flowing backwards or just standing still. This can be disorienting, especially if the Exodites want to maintain contact with other Eldar. The Timesingers help control the flow of time for a variety of purposes. Some Timesingers will jump back in time to undo mistakes, while others might speed up time within a given space to accelerate the completion of a great project. On the battlefield they can undo the deaths of warriors, trap an enemy in stasis, or speed up the charge of cavalry. However, it is an unpredictable art that even the best Timesinger has difficulty controlling.
Woodwraiths: Wooden constructs that house the spirits of dead Exodites, they are much like their wraith counterparts, except for the lack of wraithbone in their construction. This allows them even greater healing potential and flexibility. They can even transform their weaponry and forms in the middle of battle thanks to the flexibility of their organic construction. Many kinds exist, ranging from lowly rank and file warriors, to towering constructs.
Dragon Knights: The cavalry of the Exodites, they ride tamed beasts of burden that resemble dinosaurs. While the beast itself seems simple and savage, they are quite disciplined thanks to the rider’s psychic control and link with the beast. This bond is so great that when the rider dies, the beast goes on a rampage to avenge its fallen master.
Wyvern Knights: Eldar who ride flying reptilian beasts, they are much like the Dragon Knights. However, they are more fragile than their land based counterparts and require especially experienced riders to handle in battle.
Dragon Kings: Large winged reptilian xenos, they resemble the dragons of ancient legends. At any given time on a Maiden World, there is a single Dragon King which is the apex creature of the ecosystem. The relationship between the Exodites and the Dragon King is a strange one. Most of the time, it is a wild beast and the Exodites give it a large berth, and are cautious to not rouse its anger. However, during times of war, a Great Dragon will fly to an Exodite community and submits itself to their rule. Why it does this is unknown, but it is theorized that it is guided by the World Spirit of the settled Exodite World which compels the beast into service. Large and powerful flyers, they breath beams of pure plasma at their targets.
Relic Knights: When the Exodites chose to return to a simpler existence, they did not abandon all their advanced technology. Caches of weapons are kept locked away until the threat of war approaches. Thus, despite their simple appearance, Exodites are able to field advanced technology back from when their empire was at its prime. However, these weapons are irreplaceable and limited in quantity, meaning that the Exodites bolster their forces with their less formidable organic technology. Relic Knights are those warriors chosen to wield their ancient machinery, and treat them with the utmost care and respect.
Mission of the Darians Space 1999: A metaphor for the secret space program and the humans that exploit their own people for survival.
It’s shocking to me as I learn more about the technology we’ve developed with the help of the Nazis and the back engineered craft. Giving rise to a break away group of people who now live off our resources keeping us locked in obsolete technologies because THEY themselves are obsolete. This is the very reason given by Kara, Joan Collins in this episode for why the Darians exploited humans to survive.
She says, “This ship has taught us the truth, the only truth, survival.” This is certainly true of the defunct fossil fuel industry which realized when anti gravitics were mastered in the mid fifties, that technology had surpassed its viability and so the OPEC nations and all the corporate interests invested in fossil fuels, thwarted innovation and sacrificed the lives and futures of their own people so it could survive!
And if the public were to find out about all this deception? Kara explains “We couldn’t reveal our presence, they would have overwhelmed us.” This is why our intelligence agencies and other actors spend so much energy hiding the activities of our generational captors. There are many more left behind than were allowed to benefit from these new technologies and the accountability would be swift and fatal.
Kara goes on to say “Ever since the catastrophe, we Darians have had to prolong life by artificial means….” This again is the fossil fuel industry making sure that no real competition ever makes it to the open market. They prolonged their fortunes by artificial means.” By sacrificing humans! Koenig responds by saying “We happen to know what you’ve been doing with those people out there, exploiting them, using them.”
Keonig goes on to say what Steven Green says is the ET message to humans, “The only chance you have is to help each other and live together.”
“These people are your future now, prepare them to live in space, we will help you but the rest is up to you.” This is the very message that ETs have been sending us. Astoundingly this message was delivered years ago packaged in a sci fi plot but neatly wrapped in a startlingly revealing tale about the truth of the human construct.
