Borderlands Guardians by Keith Thompson
"Ancient alien robots left behind to administer and guard abandoned cities. Faces reform to approximately mimic the appearance of whatever species it interacts with."
Sometimes in daily life I like to pretend I’m a time traveler from late medieval Europe and I’m just fucking amazed at my luxurious life
Let me tell you, 14th c me is REALLY impressed with modern me’s easy access to pepper and cinnamon
"you have multiple purple garments? you must be a person of some note"
"these chairs are fantastically luxurious"
"I’ve never seen so much salt in one place"
I am going to start playing this game.
YOU MEAN BEFORE THEY MURDERED ALL THE NATIVES
Remember when muskets had 20-round clips, laser sighting, and could fire more than once every minute? When a colonist could buy a musket for less than a week’s wages, and easily conceal the musket on himself? How about when the colonists allowed non-whites to own muskets? Remember that?
I’m sure the revolution would have gone really great if the British had drones.
Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey (2014)
It’s been a very long time since legitimate science has been on TV. People have been watching Ancient Aliens and shit and there are kids whose parents and even teachers don’t offer them any bona-fide scientific education. Cosmos is a big deal.
Especially airing on a network whose biggest audience are otherwise science-hating bible-thumpers and willfully ignorant douchebros.
All those shitty assholes stand a chance of at least finding out what a tardigrade is and if that makes any difference in their lives it can only be a positive one
