How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon! December is here before it's June! My goodness how the time has flewn! How did it get so late so soon?

 

Overnighter at work has me haggard as fuck and headin’ home while everyone else is starting their day. Time to pass out poolside.

HOW MANY PEOPLE DID YOU TERRORIZE

Its very hard to be articulate when you’ve been awake for three days. I just want sleeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

What makes Thor so appealing as a character has never been the gender of the person holding Mjolnir. If they be worthy, let them swing it proudly, with all the might of Asgard behind them. I do think, however, its unfortunate that we’re seeing a new female lead that is, essentially, a rehashed version of a previously existing character, instead of something new that could stand on its own, because both comic book houses are still lacking in that department.

This kind of attitude voices a worrying mentality with Marvel though; that they don’t really believe in their female characters, or don’t feel a new, fresh character could sell as well as the controversy generated from the gender-swap. And yes, from a business standpoint, this stands to create quite a bit of buzz for the character and (hopefully) sell more issues, but that still leaves a bad taste in the mouth of the reader. Or, at least, of this reader. It just feels lazy.

What I’m trying to get at is, if you’re upset that The Mighty Thor is now reimagined as a female, then you’re missing out on what really made Thor such a vibrant character, and maybe this version, despite the silly ‘controversy’ will sell well. Maybe it will encourage Marvel to start taking real steps in the direction of new, exciting characters that don’t rely heavily on already established counterparts to sell their titles. Until then, I’m content to continue reading, in the hopes that what we get is exactly what we’ve always gotten:

A good story.

Hubble has spotted an ancient galaxy that shouldn’t exist

This galaxy is so large, so fully-formed, astronomers say it shouldn’t exist at all. It’s called a “grand-design” spiral galaxy, and unlike most galaxies of its kind, this one is old. Like, really, really old. According to a new study conducted by researchers using NASA’s Hubble Telescope, it dates back roughly 10.7-billion years — and that makes it the most ancient spiral galaxy we’ve ever discovered.
"The vast majority of old galaxies look like train wrecks," said UCLA astrophysicist Alice Shapley in a press release. "Our first thought was, why is this one so different, and so beautiful?"
