Somewhere a rocket scientist brain surgeon physicist with a knack for economics who wears Velcro shoes is having a stress breakdown.
When I was a professional ballroom dance instructor, one of my coworkers was having a tough time teaching a step to her student. As he gets more frustrated she tells him “it’s ok- you’ll get it- this isn’t rocket science.”
There is an awkward pause as her student stares back at her.
"No" he agrees, "this isn’t rocket science. That I can do. This is some sadistic step designed specifically to torture rocket scientists.”
And that’s how we found out he worked for NASA.
The Turkish company Pugedon has created a vending machine that’s dispensing help for both the environment and our furry friends.

“Fuller added that the love between Hannibal and Will is real (if not sexual), although he joked that the fans have done a good job of covering the sexual aspect through fan fiction.” —

So I’ve been thinking about it and I’ve decided that while it kind of sucks from a production standpoint that Cherno Alpha and Crimson Typhoon got killed off immediately, within the universe it makes perfect sense because Leatherback and Otachi were designed SPECIFICALLY to kill the three remaining Jaegars.
I mean, Otachi’s acid was clearly a counter to Cherno’s seemingly impenetrable armour, and her tail was to take advantage of Crimson’s telescopic conn-pod that restricted peripheral vision. Leatherback is basically Otachi’s support, his EMP blast is designed to disable Striker Eureka in particular because the Kaiju Masters know she’s too strong of a Jaegar to take on with brute force.
Cherno and Crimson didn’t die because the pilots sucked, they were the victims of a meticulously designed strike team. It would have been a really one-sided fight but the Masters didn’t anticipate humanity’s trump card: Gipsy Danger, an analogue Jaegar brought back from the dead.
I mean when you consider that the Kaiju are as intelligently designed in-universe as the Jaegars, a whole bunch of stuff makes a lot more sense: like, why Slattern, Scunner and Raiju are so ‘vanilla’ compared to Leatherback and Otachi. Gipsy’s return was such a surprise that the Kaiju Masters couldn’t anticipate what else humanity have up their sleeve: for all they knew, there could have been half a dozen restored Jaegars just waiting to launch a final assault on the Breach. So when they created the Category 5, they decided to focus on pure strength, speed and size to keep the Kaiju adaptable, instead of wasting time on specific biological weapons that could backfire.
Conversely, it also explains why Jaegar pilots would save their arsenal instead of using all their weapons immediately. Striker’s overuse of its potent chest missiles lead to a direct counter in Leatherback, and notice that Slattern’s first move is to go straight for the chest. Mako knew that if they used Gipsy’s sword too soon, it would give the Kaiju Masters time to analyse and counter it. It’s better to try to take down the Kaiju with what they already know than to play your trump card too early. Pretty cool tbh.
Thor, I love you to bits, but we need to talk about your definition of ‘in my youth’:
The Jotuns must pay for what they have done. March into Jotunheim as you once did. Teach them a lesson. Break their spirits so they’ll never dare to try to cross our borders again.
#I remain intrigued by this quote#because like many of the films statements about time and asgardians it makes no goddam logical sense#but meta to the rescue:#I like the idea that this is how the aesir experience time#not as a progression#as we do#where yesterday is recent#last year a while ago#and ten years ago a long time ago#but in epochs and eras#marked by changes in themselves#they don’t age much#not like we do#whether you think they are young for the same-ish time we are and in their prime longer#or if they are still kids at 300+ years old#either way#for them time is purely relative#and nothing changes much#not technology not culture not the people around you#so you judge time by internal markers#thor judges his own maturity as beginning on the day he regained mjolnir and lost loki#so before then he was a youth for all he thought himself a man#for only a youth would court war#and now he knows himself a man#though still battle-hungry#(because it’s THOR c’mon)#but not war hungry#and there is a difference#and it’s about putting others wants and needs and safety before your own#which is what he was lacking in thor 2011 ( amberfox17 )

I love celebrity encounters. The best was in a hotel in London.
I was in the lobby and saw Lucy Liu. She’s, like, this tall. She looked up at me and saw a tag sticking out the back of my sweater. She reached up, tucked it in, and said, ‘Now you’re perfect.’
