The “eyes” have it. 

Apparently news of a sequel to The Intruder coming in 2015 caught a lot of people off guard. Not just that Toonami’s making a sequel to their first ground-breaking special, but that Toonami is on the air. 

Heaven knows how many “Toonami is back!” posts I’ve seen around Tumblr and social media outlets today. 

Truth is Toonami’s been back officially since May 26, 2012 every Saturday night on Adult Swim. They’ve done so much in their almost two years back on the air, it’s scary. The fact that Adult Swim is planning on creating a sequel to something that happened almost 15 years ago is surprising to say the least. What’s not surprising is that we, the fans who remain faithful to the block after all of these years, finally have proof that the network believes in the block. We’re still getting new productions every week, whether it’s new-to-the-block productions like the upcoming Blue Exorcist and Black Lagoon or original series like Space Dandy (each episode is a world premiere, baby!), and even more things are coming down the pike in the coming months and now years!

So, yes, Toonami’s revival is no fluke. It’s stronger than the ratings worriers think it is. And it’s a vital part in the continuous growth of the Adult Swim brand. 

Celebrate! Watch Toonami every Saturday night starting at 11:30 PM E/P. Tell your friends to watch too. 

And keep those eyes wide open!

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

I’m not even in this fandom, but hearing this made me feel so much better about life

I needed this today.

Can’t remember which episode this came from.  It’s either the one where Q showed the crew the Borg for the first time, or its the one where Picard has to prove Data’s sentience to keep him from being disassembled (I’m bad with episode titles and too lazy to look it up :p).

It is neither. the episode is called “Peak Performance.” Context-wise, Data believes he has some kind of defect or error because he lost at a video game to an intelligent alien who’s a grand master at the game. The idea is that an android like Data, who should be even faster and more skilled at the game due to his programming, loses and he can’t figure out how he made a mistake.

If I remember right at the end Data plays him again and wins, but by only attempting not to lose.  I think it was like, 4d chess or something?

The game was called “Stratagema.” From what I could understand, it looked like you were constantly trying to take over enemy territory and area and they implied some games between experts can last for hours as they continually build up more and more territory acquisition.

How Data won… was by not winning. Basically, he realized that there was no way he could actually DEFEAT the guy, so instead he played for a stalemate - passing up obvious opportunities to advance in order to keep a balance. According to Data, he could’ve theoretically played indefinitely with no winner ever emerging.

    Have you ever considered that maybe some of these girls are not yours? Their mothers could just be claiming that you're the father because they know you would give their bastard children a better life than they could.
