  1. Me: I do like that I'm getting a castle. I imagine that from there I'll get serfs and slowly build my empire until I have a kingdom that bows to me.

I think when it comes to females in the media you’ll see something that kind of upsets me which is that females are pinned up against each other more so than men. You know, for example like you never see online “vote for who has the better butt - this actor or this actor.” It’s always like this female singer and this female singer. And you get to vote. I mean, it’s daily I see these things and these polls like “let us know who’s sexier, who’s the hotter momma” and I just don’t see it like “who’s the hotter dad” you know? I think that one thing that I do believe as a feminist is that in order for us to have gender equality we have to stop making it a girl fight and we have to stop being so interested in seeing girls trying to tear each other down, it has to be more about cheering each other on as women. That’s just kind of how I feel about it.

Maybe it’s because I love Mark Hamill and his beard to bits, but I can’t imagine Grand Jedi Master Luke as anything other than “everybody’s favorite uncle who also happens to be a badass but doesn’t flaunt it”.
I also imagine younglings fall asleep during meditation a lot.

Here’s some funny things Google Analytics thinks about my blog.

A POST ABOUT TURIAN/QUARIAN FOOD AND FLUIDS
Since I have many friends who are huge Mass Effect fans and also filthy, filthy perverts, I had an easy time learning about amino acids in my science classes.  Humans (and most organisms) are levo.  Garrus and Tali are dextro.*
The game and fandom seem to assume that ingesting the wrong amino acid would be toxic in some way.  I also read an essay that said that the other amino acids would taste like sugar.
After years of studying, I have now gotten to the point where I know definitively what would really happen.  Humans can and do ingest the other form.  You’ve done it.  I’ve done it.  Absolutely nothing happens.
When we synthesize medicine and other chemicals in the lab, we can’t control which particular molecules in the test tube will go levo and which will go dextro.  It’s possible to separate levo from dextro after synthesis, but it’s expensive and pointless.  When you take a tylenol, about half of the acetaminophen is dextro, which your body can’t use and you excrete.
As for what Garrus would taste like?  Well.  Turians evolved from birds.  Presumably he would taste like bird jizz.
I have no idea what bird jizz would taste like.  You’ll have to find another scientist to answer that for you. 
*boring science explanation:
Levo and dextro molecules are mirror images of each other.  Like this:

Some bacteria even have some dextro in them, which makes it handy when we want to kill them.  We make a dextro drug, so it only hurts a dextro organism, and leaves the human cells alone.
