1. On a Rosh Hashanah which fell on Shabbos - R’ Levi Yitzchak of Berditchiv rose and said:

    "Lord of the Universe, today You judge each person for the coming year, and grant him life or condemn him to death. But, on this Rosh Hashanah You are forced by Your own Torah to grant a good and healthy life to all Your people in coming year. After all, on Shabbos You have decreed in Your Holy Torah that it is prohibited to write. How then can You fulfil ‘On Rosh Hashanah it is written down’? There is no way for You to inscribe anyone in the Book of Death, because writing is forbidden. On the other hand, You may certainly inscribe us all in the Book of Life, because when there is pikuach nefesh (danger to life) the prohibition on writing does not apply."

    I have said it before and I’ll say it again: my people invented rules-lawyering.

    Trololololo! Happy New Year, my fellow Hebrews; may your year actually be new, and sweet. Plus all that stuff about the Book of Life too.

    i’ve said it before and apparently it still needs to be said

    pacific rim isn’t great because it presented mako as ‘strong’ (which is presumably the kind of shallow and uncritical representation white feminists look for and apply indiscriminately to all women), it’s great because it presented mako as someone worth saving

    that’s a luxury afforded to white women that women of color have never had access to

    mako doesn’t have to assimilate into whiteness, mako’s relationship with her adoptive father is filled to the brim with mutual respect and love, mako headed the jaeger restoration program, mako’s life and her happiness are paramount to the people around her, mako’s skill and brilliance saved the world and her copilot returned the favor because he felt that her life is more important than his own

    now see white women’s lives have always been protected and valued whether they’re being objectified or sacrified to move along a white dude’s manpain

    her death is always seen as a catalyst, as a crucial and impactful event that shapes his life from then on

    and i’m not making a case for women in refrigerators, i just need people to pay attention to this trope and how it’s applied

    because the death of a woman of color usually marks the RESOLUTION of a white dude’s narrative and emotional arc, after which he gets to wipe his hands and romp home and live happily ever after, and if that isn’t a hint for white people to shut the fuck up about mako, i dunno what is

    mako doesn’t have to assimilate into whiteness

    mako doesn’t have to assimilate into whiteness

    mako doesn’t have to assimilate into whiteness

Bunk: There’s a downside here. We don’t have the guns, no prints from the scene, no witnesses. But worse, we’re going to be dealing with a Baltimore city jury, and a good man is hard to find in this town. Twelve of them together, especially. An ID of both your shooters will play a whole lot easier come trial.Kima: Yeah. Sometimes things just gotta play hard.
