OH MY GOD
Spoilers for this weeks Uncanny X-men
Do not read if you do not wish to be spoiled
Also probably not a good idea to read unless you have prepared yourself for the most BRAIN MELTINGLY STUPID thing to happen in any X-men comic book ever and yes I include the time that an evil female ANTI-POPE wanted to make Kurt Wagner the pope and then convince everyone that he was the anti-christ and mutants were demons using killer communion wafers in that list
PREPARE YOUR BRAIN FOR THE NIGHTMARISH ABSURDITY
Okay, the stupidest thing to ever happen in any X-book was probably that time Magneto got high on X-coke and fucked up New York for no real reason, but yeah this recent Uncanny storyline’s a pretty close second. Sad, because Bendis’s run kinda started out with some promise (well, as much promise as a modern Bendis book can entail).

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
~Plato’s The Symposium.
How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”
We did it at school. The myth also says that the pairings could be male/female, male/male or female/female (just sayin’)
sometimes you don’t need to find someone else
It’s not a myth, it’s Aristophanes’ speech in Plato’s The Symposium (as quoted by the original post). Essentially, the setup of the Symposium is that the book covers a symposium (wine-drinking party) hosted by famous poet Agathon, in which all attendants must give a speech in praise of love as payment for their admission to the party. Aristophanes’ speech involves him giving a made-up origin for the concept of love, which is that humans were all originally two people stuck together, with male-male pairs coming from the Sun, female-female pairs coming from Earth, and female-male pairs coming from the Moon. Then, Zeus got pissed off that humans were so happy and split them in half. Thus, we spend out entire lives looking for our other half. All this to say that The Symposium is very, VERY interesting (most especially Aristophanes’ speech) and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys philosophical writings.

scott pilgrim was 23 dating a 17 year old why arent we dragging him
The comic also had pretty much all of Scott’s friends tell him it was really weird to be dating a highschooler when you’re 23, so yeah, it gets addressed plenty well.

Star Trek concept art, Enterprise interior sets - Mike Minor (1977)
This is concept art for the never-produced Star Trek: Phase II, which was supposed to be the television follow-up to TOS. Of course, plans for development ended up getting scrapped after Star Wars came out in 1977 and popularized the science fiction/action summer blockbuster movie, and in its place was released Star Trek: The Motion Picture (the script of which was just a repurposed, extended version of the script for the unproduced Phase II pilot).
