I went on facebook and everyone I went to school with looks our age but has done far, far more than me.
I feel like time spent staring at the ceiling shouldn't count.
... which might explain how I keep being mistaken for twenty five despite the silver, come to think...




I know the solution is 'don't go on facebook' but some people persist in thinking it's a great way to organise.

Why do we keep telling the stories about the brainwashed soldier?
The one time where he really was just following orders.
I mean I felt for Hawkeye and the Winter Soldier as much as the next fangirl, but why is that the story that gets told over and over, when it has absolutely no real world application?

There's always a choice.

It seems rather more important to tell stories about how to make the right choices even in the worst places.

Have finished watching season one of Killjoys.
Have also looked up when season two is out on dvd and sulked a bit.

They're putting together some proper Story there.

The down sides remain, for me, in that there's not enough women, too many white people, pretty much predictable results for black men, and really a lot of internal organs where you wouldn't want them.

But it starts out with this kick arse premise - bounty hunters who get to go anywhere for the warrant - and then gets proper political about how a system could get there and how that would work out for everyone.

And I like how everything clicks together.

I'm not sure about what the tech level is meant to be. Like, Read more... )



Okay so that sounds like I'm annoyed with it, but it's more like I like the world enough I'm tying to get a grip on it, and it seems slippery. To the point I can't guess much what might happen next, because with the tech we've seen it should be game over already, so I don't know how they'll get out of it.


But I want to see.
