shit results

Try to unravel this mystery, January.

I did it for the pun

another thing that I think about a lot is how absolutely terrible han solo is at calculating when he’s going to make planetfall

which is not to say han solo is bad with numbers, han solo is one of those self-taught savants, who can do complicated interest calculations in his head; what han solo cannot do is the finicky interstellar calculus that tells you if you start out at 1800 hours local time, on a planet with a 90 hour sidereal day, and travel at 9 parsecs per hour, skipping between the Terrabe Bypass and the Alui Corridor, you’ll make planetfall on Tatooine around 0700 local time, just when everybody’s headed out to the noonday meal.

that’s the kind of shit he hates.

it also results in an unending string of hilarious misadventures wherein han solo arrives at precisely the wrong time anywhere he goes and ends up 1) preventing the kidnapping of a young duke’s son because everyone else was asleep, 2) dropping through atmo at the exact right moment to stop an Imperial rollout of monitoring droids, because he throught the no fly order wasn’t in effect until the next day, 3) hanging around at high noon, waiting for jabba to come back from his daily nap, only to be waylaid by a man claiming to be a jedi and his wide-eyed kid, 4) amusing leia to no end as he sits at one of the mess hall tables, biting his thumb and trying to work out four-dimensional calculus with a flimsi napkin and an old-fashioned stylus, 5) annoying his son to no end as he was late for everything, yes, dad, everything—uncle luke said you arrived four days after I was born.

better late than never, han says with a grin, every time. and anyway, your mom was on a planet with a very short solar cycle, messed up everything.

for his 40th birthday, leia buys him a top of the line galactic calculator, which only needs the local time, and then galactic coordinates of origin and destination to estimate the local time of arrival.

she finds han at the kitchen table three days later, biting his thumb and working out the time to the outer rim with a flimsi napkin, and a stylus.

Man, Attack On Titan’s character and thematic writing really is underrated.

I see almost nothing picking the characters apart (outside my bubble of Tumblr, at least), when to me it’s the most interesting part of the story.

I don’t think the horror would work if the characters didn’t have these human reactions. If everyone were a badass like Levi you wouldn’t believe in their threat. It’s really the tragedy element of a character’s human flaws and desires getting the best of them.

Eren’s mother’s death is so effective because she is so human. Because she isn’t a infallible source of hope. She’s just another human being who breaks when her family is taken away. If that weren’t there, I don’t think the scene would be nearly as powerful.

Imagine if Gelgar didn’t really have the drinking problem?

If the Levi squad never admitted their mistake?

If Ymir had no motivation of living for herself or Historia her predicament of having given a false name?

If Mikasa didn’t have everyone she loves constantly taken away?

If Eren and Armin didn’t have their shared dream of freedom or putting an end and giving a meaning to all the deaths that happen?

The characters all have human desires, but within a cruel and unfeeling world.

The world is unfair and our characters fight so it no longer would be unfair, this is why I think I care, at least.

Would you really care if these characters weren’t shown to be feeling these things? It’s not that the Titans are this overwhelming threat that makes this story effective, it’s that they turn a blind eye to feelings. The Titans could be no matter what size or shape, but their threat wouldn’t be real if it didn’t mean anything to the characters and thus the audience. We hate the Titans because they make the world unfair and cold (just as we hate Marley because they make the world unfair and cold).

The idea that rational badass who does nothing wrong = good character is such an annoying thing for AoT for this reason and would absolutely ruin the series.

MY RESPONSE TO THIS EXTREME LEVEL OF COONING STARTS WITH JAMES BALDWIN AND TUPAC:

one of the great things about humanity is that the past continue in with us. we do not operate in a vacuum. no one alive today is operating in a pocket of time and space with no connection to the past. no one. so groups that have been oppressed and denied their basic humanity do not simply feel the injustice of the day in their experience, they feel the continual injustice of society towards their group(s) through the knowledge that said injustice has been happening for decades if not centuries.

black people and women (but specifically black women) should NOT be in a “i’m going to be patient with people” mode ANYMORE. it’s been centuries of oppression. oppression passed on from generation to generation to generation. centuries of black people and women (but specifically black women) being shitted on and centuries of tactics to shit on black people and women (but specifically black women) being passed on to another generation to continue the shitting. the results of which being self hatred, internalized racism, destroyed communities, brainwashed people who think their own race is base, families ripped apart and more. 

fuck all this patient bullshit. clap the fuck back! and if a white person or a man ain’t about waking up, fuck them and run them over. we can not afford to continue to lose generations of black people and women (but specifically black women) waiting on motherfuckas to wake up when we everyday see motherfuckas WILLFULLY stay sleep thus allowing the harm to peope to continue. let me say that again.

WE CAN NOT AFFORD TO LOSE ANOTHER GENERATION OF  BLACK PEOPLE AND WOMEN (BUT SPECIFICALLY BLACK WOMEN) HOPING WHITE PEOPLE AND MEN WILL TREAT THEIR FELLOW HUMANS BETTER. WE CAN NOT AND SHOULD NOT!

if a motherfucka is going to parade around here in blackface, fuck his shit up! if a motherfucka is going to throw out rape threats because he doesn’t like a woman’s opinion, fuck his shit up! if a motherfucka is going to self hate his on black sistas, lay his ass down! the time for peaceful patient negotiation is been pass. fuck all that.

and before you give me some bullshit about violence, remember:

Any situation in which “A” objectively exploits “B” or hinders his and her pursuit of self-affirmation as a responsible person is one of oppression. Such a situation in itself constitutes violence, even when sweetened by false generosity, because it interferes with the individual’s ontological and historical vocations to become more fully human. With the establishment of a relationship of oppression, violence has already begun. Never in history has violence been initiated by the oppressed.

Violence is initiated by those who oppress, who exploit, who fail to recognize others and persons—not by those who are oppressed, exploited, and unrecognized. It is not the unloved who initiate disaffection, but those who cannot love because they love only themselves. It is not the helpless, subject to terror, who initiate terror, but the violent, who with their power create the concrete situation which begets the “rejects of life.” It is not the tyrannized who initiate despotism, but the tyrants. It is not the despised who initiate hatred, but those who despise. It is not those whose humanity is denied them who negate humankind, but those who deny that humanity (thus negating their own as well).

— Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

people are mad and angry not just for shits and giggles but because that anger is justified and earned through abuse from oppressors. fuck all this patient shit. change must be demanded from oppressors and demanding shit makes people uncomfortable. change is uncomfortable. however discomfort does not even come close to what oppression looks and feels like everyday. so be aggressive. passivity is what the enemy is banking on. our unwillingness to get our hands dirty, make some fucking enemies, push the envelop, shake people out of their comfort zone and be demanding is what they are hoping we do because that allows their evil ways to become even more entrenched and to “low key” convert more people to their dark side.

stop with this bullshit about making enemies. “you have enemies? good. that means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” ― winston s. churchill. go out there and make some meaningful enemies. not everyone is supposed to like you so go out there and fight for a good cause and least make an enemy for a good fucking reason.

smfh, there’s always somebody who wants to give evil a second chance. always. lives have been and are being lost but always with this “be patient” fuckery. smfh. this is the most insulting coonage i’ve seen in a while.
