world scale

I mean I know a lot of people on this website are too young to know much about the Bush administration but Jesus Christ he was not just “an alright guy,” he did damage to the world on an unfathomable scale

“Hiding a tree in a forest”

“Blood in a butcher’s”

“A pebble on a beach”

The best disguise? Plain sight.

So where did Moffat and Gatiss hide their biggest clue about the rug pull, the shattering climax of series 4?

In the episode title name.

“The Final Problem”

The 1893 story Doyle wrote when he wanted to end his own series. The story that caused public outrage. The story that brought fans together in protest for their series to return. 

And the series did return. Doyle wrote more. The story continued. Sherlock Holmes survived the Reichenbach Fall. 

We are surviving the Reichenbach Fall right now. We are contributing to the resurrection of the exact social phenomenon of 1894, now on an international scale. 

“The world turns, nothing is ever new.” 

I Just Want You to Know that I LOVE you all very much.

And maybe that’s not exactly enough, but it’s true, and no vote, and no president, can take that away.

SO TO MY FANNIBAL FAM AND TO ANYONE WHO FOLLOWS ME, I AM HERE FOR YOU, I KNOW YOU ARE HERE FOR ME, WE’VE HAD A CRAPPY HAND DEALT THIS YEAR, BUT WE ARE GOING TO FIGHT FOR MORE LOVE IN THIS WORLD, AS WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DOING. On our smaller scale (s4) and on our grander scale (the world). 

I KNOW THAT THIS DOES NOT BEGIN TO BE ENOUGH BUT I HAVE SEEN WITH MY OWN EYES THE LOVE THIS FANDOM HAS FOR EACH OTHER AND THE UNWAVERING, INSPIRING, STRENGTH THAT IT HAS AGAINST ODDS. And I have to believe that will be enough.

Please message me if you need to talk about anything, always!!!!! My askbox and messages are WIDE OPEN. I WANT TO TALK TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU, YOU ARE ALL IMPORTANT, YOUR UNIQUENESS IS IMPORTANT. We’ve had a setback this round, but we are GOING TO TRIUMPH.

So here’s a guy you want to keep an eye on:

Mr. Block, noted pistachio lover and founder of the time-travel agency that hired Cavendish and Dakota. Described by voice actor Mark Hamill as “[a] splendid addition to my gallery of unhinged (but fun!) psychos.”

So far he hasn’t done much, but we learned in childhood not to underestimate the humble platypus on that account, and neither should we turn a blind eye to Mr. Block.

This man founded an organization with a noble aim: it specializes in righting the mistakes of the past. We learned in “Time Out” that Cavendish and Dakota’s pistachio reconnaissance is just about the least important mission that the organization has on file; its higher agents handle assignments on the scale of World War V (having already neatly averted World Wars III and IV). Dakota has long since completed his personal goal of preventing an event known as the “Mississippi Purchase.”

Yet somehow the family with the highest historical damage bill of all time have slipped right under their radar.

If this guy finds out that the Hindenburg crash, the sinking of the Titanic and the extinction of his favorite nut can all be attributed to the same genetic anomaly and its chain of carriers, he’s not going to sit pretty and let them continue to live their lives just because they happen to be lovable sorts.

Stars align in test supporting 'spooky action at a distance'

Quantum entanglement may appear to be closer to science fiction than anything in our physical reality. But according to the laws of quantum mechanics – a branch of physics that describes the world at the scale of atoms and subatomic particles – quantum entanglement, which Einstein once skeptically viewed as “spooky action at a distance,” is, in fact, real.

Imagine two specks of dust at opposite ends of the universe, separated by several billion light years. Quantum theory predicts that, regardless of the vast distance separating them, these two particles can be entangled. That is, any measurement made on one will instantaneously convey information about the outcome of a future measurement on its partner. In that case, the outcomes of measurements on each member of the pair can become highly correlated.
