Me: “A scientist is basically a detective in a labcoat. Detectives and scientists both make observations, develop questions from them, and make more observations in an attempt to find answers. Learning to observe and ask good questions is a life skill you will need even if you don’t become a scientist or a detective, so we’re going to practice on some trees. Let’s take a few minutes to look around at fallen logs and see what can be seen. Look closely, think critically, and pretend you’re detectives surveying a crime scene.”
Me: “Alright, time’s up. Detectives, gather around. What are some thoughts you have about the case?”
Girl: “Is it OK if we have evidence but we aren’t sure what happened?” 
Me: “Absolutely. That’s what the vast majority of scientific research is all about. Your observations and evidence can help you build a hypothesis, but there’s always a possibility that it could be wrong or that there’s evidence that contradicts your hypothesis.”
Girl: “Oh, okay, good. Then I have a hypothesis for how this tree got broken in half!”
Me: “Yeah? Do you want to share it with the class?”
Girl: “Yeah! A WIZARD DID IT!”
Me: “….I’m giving you an A–”
Girl: “YAY!”
Me: “–for ‘avada kedavra’.”

Tbh I really appreciate Justin being thoughtful enough about his character and the game mechanics in general to grow Taako from “I’m dumb as hell” to aloof-and-silly-but-wildly-clever.

It would have been real easy to just keep playing Taako as a moron for The Goofs, but the development in his character to account for tone and gameplay has turned Taako into a much more fun and multi-faceted character who is both pragmatic and thoughtful, selfish and deeply loyal, chaotic and brilliant. He is contradictory and changeable, like all of us.

He’s someone who is clever enough to find ways to have his cake and eat it, too, and sometimes is the only one risky and creative and Weird enough to find the solution that will save someone’s ass, or salvage someone’s world, or get him the Dopest fucking sword that has ever existed.

Anyway, thanks Justin for My Son.

its 3 in the morning and i went and got some snacks and mom… got up, came and looked in the closet, and when asked what she was looking for, said “i dont know.” then she stole one of my cookies and presumably went back to sleep

Thanks so much again Valo!! <3

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
—  Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NKJV)

Still waiting for this remix to be released
