sometimes you fight, not because you think you can win, but because you need to be able to look back later and say, “i fought.”

“In King Lear (III:vii) there is a man who is such a minor
character that Shakespeare has not given him even a name: he is merely
“First Servant.” All the characters around him – Regan, Cornwall, and
Edmund – have fine long-term plans. They think they know how the story
is going to end, and they are quite wrong. The servant has no such
delusions. He has no notion of how the play is going to go. But he
understands the present scene. He sees an abomination (the blinding of
old Gloucester) taking place. He will not stand it.

His sword is out and pointed at his master’s breast in a
moment: then Regan stabs him dead from behind. That is his whole part:
eight lines all told. But if it were real life and not a play, that is
the part it would be best to have acted.”

– C.S. Lewis, “The World’s Last Night”

So Stanford professor Ken Taylor has a whole lecture on this in Hamlet, and the role of defiant resignation (citing Kierkegaard’s concept of resignation) where you are urged to act despite understanding that it won’t change anything, simply to demonstrate your dissatisfaction with the world as it stands, and your belief in what it should be. But Steve demonstrates a lot of this.

I would also like to present: The elves in the Lord of the Rings, who fight “the long defeat”. They know they will leave, they know that ultimately, their time is over. But they fight, because others can gain from their loss.

I Don’t Normally Start Thinking about Christma…

punkpoemprose:

One of my favorite undergrad professors wrote one of those Christmas romance movies (with her husband, cute!) and I just found out today that it will be aired on Lifetime on November 30th at 8pm EST.

“The film stars Melissa Joan Hart as Kate, a baker who must fill an order
of 12,000 cookies before Christmas. She falls in love with a nutcracker
who comes to life, played by Barry Watson.”

And it’s called, of course, “A Very Nutty Christmas”.

It’s basically everything you’d find in a good holiday themed romance-fluff fic. So basically just dropping this as a save the date. More posts about this to come and I’ll probably be live blogging when it comes out.

If you’re not ready to fight an alligator over your best friend dont even think about coming to Florida

Apex predators

Yooooo

Florida culture is living in a real life Jurassic park yet being more scared of the local people

TBF, you would be too if you’d ever met Florida Man

Hopefully this doesn’t burst anybody’s bubbles, but the video’s fake (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/did-man-save-friend-from-reptilian-attack/)

Now, by fake I mean: the alligator wasn’t real, it was put there as a prank by some Youtubers, to record people’s reactions. So the guy a) survived, and b) reacted as he would (AKA: fought a fucking alligator to save his friend) had it been real, because neither of them knew it wasn’t.

To quote Snopes: It appears that the “elbow drop” move was actually a real, good-faith, and quite courageous response to an uncomfortably realistic and relatively low-effort prank

Ok but like…. that still doesn’t change the fact that this absolute legend genuinely thought an alligator was about to eat his friend and he ELBOW DROPPED the fucking thing to save him!!!! That’s some true ass friendship right there

People’s Elbows!!!
