An “egalitarian” is someone who, realizing that a scale is imbalanced because there are six pounds on one side and twelve on the other, seeks to correct the imbalance by adding six pounds to both sides.
well that was the best damn explanation I’ve seen.
*puts on mathematician’s cap*
Technically, if you keep doing that indefinitely, the scale will aporoach balance in an asymptotic manner, to the point where the scale is so close to being balanced that there is no practical or evident difference.
*removes mathematician’s cap* *runs*
I like these two because my mouth is tilted in the same direction
i absolutely love your expression in both of these

Christopher Eccleston on the relationship between the Doctor and his companions
"Not very bright"
Just as a random selection of ‘what the hell, were we even watching the same show?!’
Stop pretending all classic ladies were useless and did nothing but scream and get captured and be a bit dim. Even the ones who weren’t academically talented like these ladies, were still super bright, intuitive and badass.
As far as I fan recall, he wasn’t watching the show at all, which means he was going off of stereotypes. Or the fact that many of the writers would still put the intelligent ladies into positions of “oh, Doctor, what’s that?” Or just Jo Grant.
Please spread the word about this!!! Reblog if you need to. The Ukrainians are being killed by their own government, and the country is going into chaos…
OH MY GOD FUCKING THANK YOU SO MUCH FINALLY SOMEONE THAT GETS IT
For those of you that don’t usually read newspapers…
Finally something that doesn’t waste my time with information I don’t need. This gets to the point without screwing around. Its important and if there was anyone else like me who was having trouble understanding the full scope of this I think it’s a good place to start.
It also forgot to mention a large number of the protestors and opposition are fascists and neo-nazis, but w/e.
It also makes the mistake of characterizing Ukraine as a homogeneous nation. In fact, Ukraine exists in two cultural halves: Eastern Ukraine (where most people speak Russian and are fine being associated with Russia) and Western Ukraine (which includes most of the nationalists, many of whom are indeed fascists, neo-nazis, and other kinds of antisemites) and would quite like to be part of the European union).
The Doctor used to be someone kids could grow up with, and look up to. What happened? Oh, right.
Can we please just spread this across the internet like wildfire?
Yes, because MICKEY was a companion the Doctor has any respect for, before he comes back later as a completely different person. Because the BEST way to show respect for someone is to tell them to “Not wander off,” like a child. Because the quality of a character is determined by how likable they are.
And as for classic series fans who might agree with that logic… Have you MET the Seventh Doctor?
What if Doctor Who was an American show?
