THINGS THAT ARE NOT ACTUALLY VERY SCARY:

  1. Black Holes are bound by the same gravitational laws as everything else.  The galaxy is full of them but we didn’t even start noticing them until recently.
  2. Sharks kill maybe five people in a really bad year.  Lightning kills forty.
  3. Radioactivity is only harmful in very large doses, otherwise our cells are pretty resilient and have mechanisms to repair damaged DNA.
  4. Aliens are unlikely to be more than microbes (life on Earth was strictly microbial for 9/10ths of its history) and anyway it’s probably impossible for them to get here from wherever they are.
  5. Computers only do what they’re told to do.  Seriously.

Yes I support gay rights.

Yes I would care if you died.

No I’m not going to reblog that post.

I think I’ve figured out this Tortall/Pacific Rim idea.

  • The pilots are Alanna and Wyldon. They’re both career military, but that’s where the similarities end. Wyldon comes from a long line of military men, and his rise through the ranks, while certainly deserved, has always been something of a foregone conclusion. Alanna, on the other hand, has had to claw her way to the top, starting with joining the military against her father’s express wishes (he’d wanted her to go to college and study something appropriate, like history or science or business.) Alanna’s and Wyldon’s Drift compatibility comes as a surprise to absolutely everyone, including them. Wyldon is inflexible and stoic, Alanna is impulsive and aggressive; they don’t really like each other, but they understand each other and they trust each other and they balance each other out. Their jaeger is called Lightning Sirius.
  • Jon and Gary are running things up in LOCCENT. Jon deals mostly with the outside world- politicians, local authorities, journalists. Gary oversees combat operations.
  • Raoul is the head of ‘dome security. His job is to keep unauthorized people out, be they terrorists or rogue bloggers. He gets a lot more of the latter than the former. His chief underlings are Dom and Kel. He coordinates a lot with Thayet, who handles much of the day-to-day operations of the Shatterdome. She is scary good at it.
  • George is the go-between with Hannibal Chau. Officially, he’s on the PPDC cleanup crew. Unofficially, he makes sure K-Science gets the parts they need at a good price with a minimum of fuss.
  • Daine is basically Newt. (Daine: I’M GOING TO TALK TO THE KAIJU!! Numair: DO NOT TALK TO THE KAIJU THIS IS A BAD IDEA DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE DOLPHINS?!)

I wanted to … make [Rorschach] as like, ‘this is what Batman would be in the real world’. But I have forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans, ‘smelling’, ‘not having a girlfriend’, these are actually kind of heroic! So Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I made him to be a bad example. But I have people come up to me in the street and saying: ‘I AM Rorschach. That is MY story’. And I’d be thinking: ‘Yeah, great. Could you just, like, keep away from me, never come anywhere near me again as long as I live?’

do action movies know they can have more than one female character

Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions. 

This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.
