Josh, class of 2018
Civil Engineering Major

Hey there, thanks for stopping by! This is primarily a blog for my favorite shows and games, most eminently Halo, HTTYD, Firefly, and Star Wars. There are plenty of others, but those are most common, and I tag just about everything.
Music and History posts are also common, and of course the usual randomness floating around tumblr.

This blog runs on a queue and is updated daily.

  3. The way your soul is freed in seeing them, the way your heart hurts at the distance

  4. "If someone comes to you and asks your help, you shall not turn him off with pious words, saying, “Have faith and take your troubles to God!” You shall act as if there were no God, as if there were only one person in all the world who could help this man–only yourself."

    -

    Rabbi Moshe Leib of Sassov (via shiraglassman)

    You don’t expect to hear a rabbi say “act as if there were no God” and mean not “do whatever you feel like doing” but “recognize that the ultimate responsibility for doing good in the world lies with you.”  I kind of love this.

    It’s a pretty standard take on Jewish ethics, tbh.

  23. dimittas said: Anita Sarkeesian (female) sent many death threats to herself. But she isnt a video gamer, so your point still might be a valid.

    You are literally too stupid to insult.

    Translation: I can’t disprove that so you’re stupid.

    I can’t disprove that unicorns are real, but that doesn’t make them exist. I know I shouldn’t feed the trolls, but hell, I’ve got a bit of time to kill.

    Gamergate is a hate movement that started with a jilted ex of a game dev accusing her of sleeping with a journalist for a good review, when said journalist never reviewed the game in question at all.

    Anita Sarkeesian and Brianna Wu have been driven from their homes by death threats and harassment. #Gamergate as a whole has been revealed as a concentrated, concerted effort to harass Zoe Quinn by the aforementioned jilted ex.

    And over what? Feminism in video game journalism? Less than half a percent of articles written about video games contain explicit references to sexism, misogyny, or feminism. Every major art form is analyzed in sociopolitical lights. Every major everything is analyzed that way. It’s what criticism is. Feminist criticism is an accepted academic method of analyzing media that has been in use since the late 1700s.

    Even if it wasn’t, these people are essentially getting angry about discussions about women having more egalitarian portrayals in games. That’s literally it. Their biggest rallying cry is that men who play games are being shoved into the margins despite being gaming’s core target demographic. Except they fail to notice that adult women are the largest demographic in gaming, and even if they weren’t, it’s not oppressive to be asked to maybe not use women as sex objects in games. It’s not oppressive for some things not to be about men and their entertainment.

    The threats made against Sarkeesian are credible, and the FBI agrees with me on that one. She isn’t the only one to receive credible death and rape threats recently (or in the past) and she won’t be the last.

    I suspect you’re not the type who actually cares about facts, however. I suspect you’re one of the people who urge us to “look at both sides” of the issue, but honestly? When one side sends death, rape, and bomb threats, and the other wants women not to be treated as shitty by the gaming industry as they are, that’s not a debate I’m willing to have.

    By the way, humanism is the belief that people have the ability to act ethically without the assistance of theism or supernatural belief. If you want a belief system that’s about ensuring men and women have equal rights and opportunities, that’s feminism.

    This may be the most succinct and eloquent takedown of these goons that I’ve seen yet.

The Becker semi-auto Revolving Shotgun,
No I did not get my gun terminology wrong, this is a semi-automatic revolver. Designed in 1899 these interesting revolving shotguns were not produced until after World War I.  Made in Germany, it was a five shot 16 gauge shotgun with a revolving cyclinder.  Shells were inserted into a loading port on the right hand side, and also automatically ejected with each shot. The most interesting thing is this is not a double action or single action revolver, it is a semi-auto revolver.  For the first shot the user cocked a lever near the top of the barrel.  The force from each subsequent shot works a mechanism which turns the cylinder and cocks the gun. 
Made by Romerwork in Suhl, only 100 of these uniques shotguns would be produced.
