Okay so Spock was born and raised on Vulcan, a planet that canonically has a higher gravity than Earth. At least partially due to this, Vulcans have much denser bone and muscles than humans (part of why they are so much stronger than us) meaning that per m^3 Vulcans weigh more than the average human. Considering Spock, the beanpole that he is, has been stated to have the strength of 3 average men it is logical to deduce that his muscle mass is up to 3 times as dense as that of the average human meaning it is up to 3 times as heavy (I’m not a physician so don’t quote me on this). All this considered, no matter the math, Spock is heavy af, so

how strong is Kirk????????

So... lemme try to explain what’s going on, here.

It seems to be taking it all very seriously, so here goes.

There’s a monster, with no nose, who’s allegedly a computer virus that’s escaped into the real world…

…who can literally suck the ones and zeroes out of monitors, not the computers themselves…

…and who – if you try to use a landline phone next to a coffee cup that’s plugged into a TV – will…

…possess the phone with its virus-ness, I guess, physically tearing it apart, and…

…um… and then ‘program’ the ten feet of wire inside the phone to leap out and attack you…

…because, uh… because it, um…

…because it can do that.

I mean, sure, not everyone had the best grasp of technology, science, and science fiction in 2001, but still, I can only assume the writer based this all on a 10-minute inebriated tech support call he had with his nephew last spring.

Reminder: A Latina Has Never Won The Oscar For Best Actress
That's infuriating.

In fact, the last time a Latina was nominated for Best Actress was Catalina Sandino Moreno for “Maria Full of Grace” in 2004. That means it’s been 13 years since a Latina actress has even been nominated in the category.

And Latinxs have fared only slightly better in other categories. Rita Moreno, in 1962, and Mercedes Ruehl, in 1992, have been the only Latina actresses to take home an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actress category. The sole Latino to take home an Oscar for Best Actor was José Ferrer in 1950. While Anthony Quinn, in 1952 and 1946, and Benicio del Toro, in 2000, are the only Latino actors to win for a supporting role.
