It is all a question of probabilities. Quite simple, really, if one bets with any sequential consistency. The combinations totaling seven or eleven have considerable value when achieved on the primary attempt. With eight variations possible to create those totals, the likelihood of those totals occurring is not significant.

I totally forgot I had a webkinz account from when I was like eleven and I still remember the password
I just like exploring the house I made like eight years ago and all of sudden the site started to bug out and I was walking this cartoon monkey do double takes for like a minute until it really started to get scary
using nothing more than newton’s laws of gravitation, we astronomers can confidently predict that several billion years from now our home galaxy, the milky way, will merge with our neighbouring galaxy, andromeda. because the distances between the stars are so great compared to their sizes, few if any stars in either galaxy will actually collide.
any life on the worlds of that far off future should be safe, but they will be treated to an amazing billion-year-long lightshow.

my hopes for season two of orange is the new black:
- the word ‘bisexual’
It’s sad that people are JUST NOW finding out JJ Abrams never even watched DS9. You guys, this was public knowledge a long time ago- hell, he said everything except for TOS were just silly space adventures and not important to the story.
On a slightly related note, I saw Levar Burton more or less the day JJ’s announcement about everything else being ‘silly space adventures’ - his response was beautiful. It was something along the lines of “You know what? They’re building a holodeck in California right now - that’s MY series, not TOS, and it’s coming alive. It changes people just as much. So you can kiss my ass.” Or something like that.

Do you hear the Trekkies sing?
Singing the song of angry nerds?
It is the music of a fandom
who will fight back with their words!
i think the sisko is something we can all believe in
Bob Orci, one of the writers who worked on the nu!Trek scripts, wants to direct the next Star Trek movie and the fandom is fighting back to make our displeasure at that known. I can’t speak for everyone but in my personal opinion, Bob Orci is a childish, rude, nasty little man, as evidenced here where he exploded at fans who expressed their dislike for STID. I personally don’t think he should be allowed within twenty lightyears of the third reboot but hey, I’m just a nerd who loves Trek. According to him, what do I know?
This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.
Because wow, that was patronizing.
I loved that scene in Elementary.
1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.
2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.
3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”
You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.
