What if TOS had 900% more central female characters?
(Since I don’t want to stretch your dashboards any more than I have already, I’ve written some thoughts about the characters and the process that went into making the graphics under the cut.)
but what if the Enterprise, the flagship, was staffed entirely by ladies, maybe the troublemaking ones that High Command wanted away from Earth for five years. but they’re exploring new places and meeting new alien races and ALL THEY MEET are the girls. So they think all humans (maybe Vulcans and betazoids) are like that, since obviously some are in relationships are some aren’t and it’s all peachy.
Like the opposite of the Pratchett dwarves thing.
So when a diplomatic follow-up ship arrives, staffed with the usual gender disparity, the alien leaders address EVERY FEDERATION OFFICER as “Ladies, it is good to meet you” and “Ma’am” because those are the formal pronouns for addressing someone from the Federation, right?

Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.
I fuck with your theory, marry me.
First of all, that first statement is an overgeneralization. Not every Chinese person is going to be skilled at math of course. It’s ignorant to go into these stereotypes.
But try this:
Read them out loud to yourself. Now look away, and spend twenty seconds memorizing that sequence before saying them out loud again.
If you speak English, you have about a 50 percent chance of remembering that sequence perfectly If you’re Chinese, though, you’re almost certain to get it right every time.
Why is this?
One explanation is because the Chinese language allows them to read numbers faster.
Chinese number words are remarkably brief. Most of them can be said in less than 1/4th of a second (for instance, 4 is ‘si’ and 7 ‘qi’)
Their English equivalents—”four,” “seven”—are longer: pronouncing them takes about 1/3 of a second.
The English number system is also VERY illogical.
For example, right after the word 10, instead of saying one-ten, two-ten, three-ten we have different words like 11,12.
Not so in China, Japan and Korea. They have a logical counting system. Eleven is ten one. Twelve is ten two. Twenty-four is two ten four, and so on.
That difference means that Asian children learn to count much faster. Four year old Chinese children can count, on average, up to forty. American children, at that age, can only count to fifteen, and don’t reach forty until they’re 5 years old.
The regularity of their number systems also means that Asian children can perform basic functions—like addition—far more easily.
Ask an English seven-year-old to add thirty-seven plus twenty two, in her head, and she has to convert the words to numbers (37 + 22).
Ask an Asian child to add three-tens-seven and two tens-two, and no translation is necessary.

Huh. That’s really interesting!
This makes so much more sense than the racist bullshit people come up with.
this applied to Thai language as well.
You should listen how Asian children recite the times table.

"How many security contractors died in Iraq, do you know?"
"Yeah you don’t, nobody does, because nobody cared."
oh my god the one with bill nye though
one thing is not believing in global warming and another thing is believing its even remotely related to fucking volcanoes
Quite literally the only time you’ll ever find volcanoes related to global warming is if the planet is completely frozen over in a snowball ice age or if entire continents completely covered in volcanoes were erupting at once.
The second one. He has the most sarcastic and annoyed tone of voice. Omg. “I just HAPPEN to be a Muslim. I am a religious ACADEMIC I have always been interested in Christianity,” SHUT HER DOWNNNNNN.
The first one would have embarrassed me so much I’d retire immediately after the interview.
this is a beautiful thing to behold and god, i watched the number 5 one like 8 times
but can we talk about how bill nye kind of sort of totally looks like a real life vulcan?
