dang i didn’t need another marvel book to pay attention to
well i did but anyways
The so-called “A-B Line” (approximately 54°40’N), which marks the northern boundary of the Dixon Entrance, was delineated during the 1903 Alaska Boundary Treaty. The meaning of the line remains in dispute between Canada and the United States. Canada claims the line is the international maritime boundary, while the United States holds that its purpose was only to designate which islands belonged to which country, and holds that the maritime boundary is an equidistant line between islands. Territorial fishing disputes between the countries remain today, as the United States does not recognize the A-B Line for purposes of seafloor resources or fishing rights and has never shown the treaty boundary on its own official maps.
i keep forgetting there is a popeyes five blocks from campus, i should be doing this //every day//
laverne cox is well on her way to becoming one of the most important, inspiring feminist icons of our time don’t even look at me if you think differently.
the thing that really bothers me about these technopessimists is that they conflate everything large and complex with an orwellian conspiracy, and people who don’t understand the socially transformative power of the internet are what scares me bc //my grandparents get it// so whats your fucking problem.
oh right, you don’t trust people. this is why when it comes to the next gen analogies they always personify the internet with the borg and not data.
people are always all ‘you fools, you’ve all been tricked by your facebooks and livejournals into becoming pavlovian automotons’ and while mostly i just hear that xkcd comic where every person on the subway car is thinking ‘i am the only conscious person in a world of of sheep’, and also a little bit of vizzini, and also ‘you fools, earth shall have lost its last great scientist, i, duran duran, inventor of the atomic ray!’, if i’m honest i really just feel bad for them because all they got out of next gen talking about technology was //the borg//?
geordi is a blind guy who became an astronaut, and his best friend is a robot. if you can make it through seven seasons and the very important st:generations of data as a walking talking google algorithm trying to find his place in this world, and all you remember is that the borg are scary but you misunderstood //why//? congratulations, you are everyone who ever dismissed something popular with those damn fool kids today bc they were living on different terms than you knew or understood, and therefore inherently //wrong// ones with no social merit or moral character.
the internet is not skynet, it’s //abed//. and abed is better.
and the borg are scary bc they are //zombies//. i don’t know why i have to explain that. ppl who think the internet invented hollow narcissism should maybe go read gatsby.
ok I think I got all that outta my system and I am gonna watch Star Trek. remember what I said about “slowness” in food as a sometimes-reactionary push against futurity? I just watched the episode where Sonya Gomez thanked the replicator for her hot chocolate and said it was part of bringing more “humanity” into artificial intelligence.
dude Picard bumps into an unidentifiable maybe not even that sentient life form on the space road and kills it, pretty innocent, road-kill style, and he’s gotta reconceptualize his entire future and philosophy because he’s so bummed that he killed a thing, you know
what the fuck is your problem jj abrams
When I say people want to see more diversity in stories, no, I really don’t mean different stories about straight white dudes. I really, really don’t mean that at all. This isn’t about types of stories being told. This is specifically about people. I’m not letting you make this about something else. You are not hijacking this message to make sure we’re still talking about straight white dudes.
The saga continues:
This made me actually sputter with frustration. Saliva exited my mouth. Why do you think your opinion SHOULD matter on this subject? Why should your opinion be given the same weight over people who are actually living these experiences? Especially when my original point was about how minorities rarely get to tell their own stories. I’ve been really patient with him but he’s taken up way too much of my time and he’s still missing the point like he’s trying to actively avoid it.
