Random Thoughts: Six

We're just going with installment six of Random Thoughts so I don't get confused. And no, I don't know why I feel the need to keep track.


*****


Does it weird anyone else out that Dr.Phlox basically pimped out T'Pol to Trip? I mean, their conversation about Trip's insomnia was basically this:


Dr.Phlox: Hey, don't you Vulcans know how to do a sort of massage that could make Trip go to sleep better?


T'Pol: Oh, yeah, that's really intimate...like sexual partners intimate.


Dr.Phlox: T'Pol, don't be such a prude. Just cut out the Vulcan happy ending and you'll be fine.


I am more convinced now that Dr.Phlox is just a crazy real life fanfiction writer and hardcore ships these two together in his stories. I bet he got at least one hundred notes on his Tumblr entry about how he got his one true pairing together in real life.




As a pagan, I wonder how many Loki fan girls have tried calling upon the real Loki and are getting royally screwed over by the Norse trickster God. Or, not even calling on the real Loki, but just joking around with friends and doing stupid fan girl shit and calling upon the fake one in jest and the real Loki just pops his head up like, 'Sup? Did I hear someone asking me to give them a boon in my own special chaotic way?'




In all the old stories in which Satan is said to have cloven hooves and has to wear boots to hide them, didn't anyone ever wonder why his legs bend backwards? I'm assuming that he had the goat legs to go with the hooves. Even if he didn't, what shoe fits a hoof?




Oddly specific measurements sometimes confuse me if I think about them for too long. Who came up with the gallon? Why is a cup 8 ounces instead of 4? Who decided all of this?
