    I threw a dog on the ground today 😭😭😭

    I am embarrassed by how hard this made me laugh.

    …..does this mean cat people hurl cats at the ground?

    you just kind of… open ur arms and they sort themselves out. if you try and place them down they get mad and wiggle and make everything worse

    some friends of mine have the most un-cat-ish cat i have ever met

    my quintessential example of this:

    i was holding him in my arms petting him while we were picking out what games to play that night. when we’d decided on a few, i needed to put the cat down in order to, you know, carry boxes. so i started letting him down, expecting that he’d eventually do the cat hop thing… but he never did.

    i ended up lowering him all the way to the floor. and even then he never got his feet under him. i just sort of… plopped him down on his side as he stared up at me like a betrayed sack of flour.

    I saw this so clearly in my mind and I’m never going to stop laughing at betrayed sack of flour.

    “Pants were invented for men” not according to my ancestors.

    Pants were invented for riding horses. People who didn’t have nomad horse culture all wore dresses. Dress wearing old greek men considered pants to be the mark of barbarism. Like the Scynthians and Samaritans.

    Also- the Scynthian and Samaritan tribes were known for equality between genders. Where women were renouned hunters and archers. They are where the greeks got the idea for Amazons.

    So sorry bro pants are totally for women. You just mad its for riding something that’s not you.

    Okay but like based on genital structure, it would actually make sense for mean to wear skirts and women pants, why are we even talking about logic

    Uhura never had another name during the series. One of the fan writers wrote “Upenda” - which means “peace” in Swahili, I understand — not officially, but in some of their fan writings. And it sort of took hold. But when they were going to do the official history of Star Trek in a published book, the writer called Gene and asked him was “Uhura” her first name or her last name? Gene said, “Well, Nichelle and I never decided.” We always leaned towards it being her last name because it’s taken from the Swahili “uhuru” which means freedom. So it would sort of be like the same as “Freeman.” So he said, “You can make it her last name.” The writer said, “What about her first name? I’ve come up with one in Swahili. It’s Nyota.” Gene said, “I can’t give you that permission because Nichelle and I named her together, and she has rights to that, so you’ll have to call her and get her permission.” So he gave him my number, and he called me and I laughed and was delighted. He said, “I have a name and it’s Nyota.” I said, “That’s quite beautiful. What does it mean?” He said, “It means ‘star’.” I said, “You can have my permission!” So I have since said that her name is Nyota Upenda Uhura, which w<>ould mean a free-floating star: “star of freedom and peace”. I like that.—NICHELLE NICHOLS
