wouldn't this be the most perfect thing ever

I had a crazy wild dream today.
So, I walked into the kitchen and there was Mom and I was all like, “Mom I found the most amazing thing on Netflix!!!”

“Oh, what?”

“A Robin TV series!!!”

And my mom just -deadpan- “That’s not the greatest thing ever. It means you’ll be watching it for the next three days straight.”

And I. Wow Mom.

Anyhow, turns out it was a 1989 cartoon called “Robin gone Rogue: Son of Batman” and it was about Tim Drake. The animation was an odd cross between BtaS and the original Scooby-Doo series. Best part? It was apparently entirely in French and the first words out of Robin’s mouth were “sacrebleu!”

Then I woke up and friends, I have never been more disappointed in my life.

i remember reading that back in the 18/1900s, instead of predicting cellphones, people thought that everybody would have a telephone in their hat. since everyone wore hats back then! they just didn't think to envision a future where hats wouldn't be ubiquitous,and didn't think to predict what cellphones have now become. that's kinda how i feel about the end of babygate. i feel like we're working off the information we have now, and the REAL answer will come at us from an angle we never expected.

This is the most perfect analogy. Also reminds me of a line from one of my favorite books, The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin:

““How would it ever occur to a sane man that he could fly?“ Estraven said sternly. It was a fair response, on a world where no living thing is winged, and the very angels of the Yomesh Hierarchy of the Holy do not fly but only drift, wingless, down to earth like a soft snow falling, like the windborne seeds of that flowerless world.”

How could you conceive of flying when you’ve never seen anything else fly? I don’t think we’ve seen the “winged living thing” here yet. We can’t predict how it’s going to end based on past experience. (Also, everyone should read The Left Hand of Darkness.)
