sound vandalism

Did you hear about the possibility of possible drilling and looking for oil in our national parks? Apparently the turd in chief sign a thing to look into the possibility. So there goes the last thing that still made America great our national forests teddy Roosevelt is rolling in his grave. He cared enough to start the program and now… now I just want to see humanity rot.

I’m reading about it now and I can’t believe it. They’re NATIONAL MONUMENTS - literal pieces of our history. Listed in the article are the Castle Mountains in California, Gold Butte in Nevada, and the northern rim of THE GRAND FREAKING CANYON. Not to mention the sacred lands of several Native American tribes that are for sure going to be looted and vandalized. Sound familiar? It’s dapl/pipeline all over again. 

Humor Me

You were so far from pain. It was as if every cell in your body knew that this would be ending one way or another, and there was no point in sending shrieks of agony along your nerves to your brain any longer.

No, the time for pain was long gone.

what exactly did luke DO back on tatooine? like, what was his life as a member of the slave rebellion like? you've made it sound pretty wild (vandalism, accessory to grand theft, gunrunning) but I Need To Know More?

Well the “grand theft” charge in fact refers to stealing people. Or it would, if they could ever pin anything on him.

Luke was mostly involved with running people to safety, helping to hide them on his family’s farm, and in particular helping Aunt Beru perform the surgeries to remove transmitters in the hidden room off their garage. By the laws of the Hutts, that makes him guilty of grand theft and accessory to grand theft.

By the time Luke was a teenager, and starting to get pretty heavily involved with the freedom trail, the scanner had spread through most of the underground network. The stories say that Ekkreth stole the secret of the scanner from the Depuran and gave it to the people. And Ekkreth wears a hundred thousand shapes and works with a hundred thousand hands, making modifications, passing the device along, spreading from safe house to safe house and giving the people the tools they need to steal themselves.

Luke himself has made a couple of modifications to the scanner: he’s made the design more streamlined, smaller, easier to hide. And, of course, he’s used it quite a lot himself.

They have a system, Luke and Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen. Aunt Beru is the surgeon. She was Grandmother Shmi’s student and her hands are steady and strong. She teaches Luke, too, and he’s performed a few surgeries himself. But usually his job is to work the scanner, and then to talk the person through the operation, to help them in any way he can. Uncle Owen runs interference and makes sure that everyone is fed and safe, and sometimes he pays off the right people when it has to be done.

And, of course, there’s the farming business to attend to, as well. They all do that.

And okay, maybe sometimes Luke likes to sneak out with his friends, and maybe they’ve tagged a building or ten, and maybe there was one time they almost got caught red-handed by Bib Fortuna himself. But they didn’t. That’s the important thing.

And yeah, all right, maybe Luke’s run guns a few times, but that’s not a big deal. Everyone on Tatooine has run guns at least once. It’s just something people do.

(A few years later, Luke casually mentions some of these things to his new Rebel friends, because really they aren’t a big deal so sometimes they just slip out in conversation.

Wedge stares into the camera like he’s on the Office.)

“The unsavoury gesture comes hot on the heels of his group’s record label boss, Simon Cowell, stating that he doesn’t expect to see Harry Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan back together as a group ‘for a while.’”

I know it’s not meant to but that makes it sound likes Simon vandalized his house goodbye
