So much greatness in this photo
So, my friend made herself into 15 foot long cardboard velociraptor with googly eyes
so my friend and i were home alone and naturally we ordered a pizza
we had a simple request
so when the doorbell rang we were super excited but our delivery person was this really confused old guy
he was like, “i’m sorry, but i don’t know what the heck a TARDIS is, so i drew the closest thing i could think of”
he drew us a tortoise
god bless this man
i gave him a twenty and told him to keep the change
D: give him forty, he earned his money for his efforts

A Famous Science Fiction Writer's Descent Into Libertarian Madness -
Robert Heinlein became increasingly right wing, and his novels suffered for it.
I particularly like this part:
”In truth, Heinlein’s shift to the right took place over a decade, from 1948 to 1957. In the early 1950s, the Heinleins travelled around the world. The writer was already a Malthusian and a eugenicist, but the trip greatly exacerbated his demographic despair and xenophobia. “The real problem of the Far East is not that so many of them are communists, but simply that there are so many of them,” he wrote in a 1954 travel book (posthumously published in 1992). Even space travel, Heinlein concluded, wouldn’t be able to open enough room to get rid of “them.” Heinlein treated overpopulation as a personal affront.”
Why? Because it captures the essence of “overpopulation” theses…which are grounded in a psychological aversion to large crowds with a little racism bubbling up underneath. Scientifically, the issue is not population but consumption, but we all gladly accept the conclusions of such thinkers even though a single North American and a single African have wildly different consumption impacts.
Well…what do you think?
