duskenpath:

Rest stops on highways are liminal spaces where the veil is thin and nobody can tell me differently

Explain

The explanation is that liminal spaces are in between places that bridge Here with There, so in fairy tales we often have the Fairy Ring, the Forest Clearing, the Sudden Misty Foggy Forest, the Bridge, the River, graveyards, in some cases

We also have a ton of american urban mythology around famous roadways and sites off the sides of roads

Archetypes like these occur to mark the places in the world where the veil goes thin and humans can have extra-worldly experiences, out of the ordinary way of living

So why wouldn’t transient spaces like rest stops where everyone is just passing through from one place to the next, never stopping for too long, not be a liminal space where spirits frequent, too

Especially since nobody would know if they were real or not

The way some people freak out about pumpkin spice stuff coming back you’d think it’s a rare drug from a desert planet or something…

more media creators need to be like gene roddenberry

which is to say, they need to deliberately and thoughtfully include more characters of diverse backgrounds in their stories

and also, more spaceships

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x

farhanshk:

Would like to inform you that the tear gas shells which were used on the peaceful protestors yesterday in Islamabad were made by Smith & Wesson Co. (based in Massachusetts). Those shells were made in 1991 which have expired in 1999. These expired shells are proved to be more potent which have resulted in deaths. The same shells were used in Ferguson riots a few days back and in Bahrain too to stop protestors.
