The Papacy is Fantastic


Hey everybody!

I’m Nick! If you want to know bits and pieces about me, ask :)
The most important thing is: I am beloved.

I want you to know that I'm here to love you and show you support, so, if you need to ask me for prayers, advice, help, or anything at all, feel free to let me know in my ask.

Some advice if you ever feel low.

Just a sampling of nearly 500 eminent American converts who lived from the 17th to the 21st century featured in John Beaumont’s book “The Mississippi Flows Into the Tiber: A Guide to Notable American Converts to the Catholic Church

Quotes above taken from this review (a great overview).

I would agree with all of these.

"When I left Avatar the Last Airbender I gave every member of the crew this image of the main cast as Star Wars Characters. Working on Avatar was one of the greatest experiences of my career and I have never printed a copy of it since I gave it to the crew of Season 1. I drew the image on paper and then had it scanned in. The color was done by my then-assistant director Justin Ridge, who later came up and worked with me on Clone Wars.” - Dave Filoni

Filoni drew this? !!!

I really like him. Not a huge fan of the CW movie, but the show grew on me, and he certainly did. He definitely cares about Star Wars and I appreciate that.

It is pointless to distinguish between The Clone Wars film and The Clone Wars series. The film is the ‘pilot episode’ for the series, or rather, four episodes edited together. Lucas liked the visualizations so much that he wanted to put it on the big screen - it wasn’t written to play as a ‘movie’. Its critics couldn’t understand that, but those who did understand what it actually was were able to enjoy it.
A new full-length trailer for the Rebels series just came out, and Filoni is directing that show too, have you seen it?

"Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."

We all change. When you think about it, we’re all different people all through our lives, and that’s okay, that’s good, you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be.

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.

So that’s cool and everything, but maybe some of you would be interested to know why this is a significant find? Beyond just its record-setting bigness.
Since Einstein, physicists have accepted something called the Cosmological Principle, which states that the universe looks the same everywhere if you view it on a large enough scale. You might find some weird shit over here, and some other freaky shit over there, but if you pull back the camera far enough, you’ll find that same weird and/or freaky shit cropping up over and over again in a fairly regular distribution. This is because the universe is (probably) infinite in size and (we are pretty darn sure) has, and has always had, the same forces acting on it everywhere.
So why is this new LQG so radical? (It stands for ‘Large Quasar Group,’ btw, not ‘Light Quasar Group.’)
Well, let’s try to comprehend the scale we’re dealing with. A ‘megaparsec,’ written Mpc, is about 3.2 million light years long. The Milky Way is about 0.03 Mpc across (or 100,000 light years). The distance between our galaxy and Andromeda, our closest galactic neighbor, is 0.75 Mpc, or 2.5 million light years. LQGs are usually about 200 Mpc across. Assuming a logarithmic distribution of weird shit outliers (if you don’t know how logarithmic distribution curves work, don’t worry about it), cosmologists predicted that nothing in the universe should be more than 370 Mpc across.
This new LQG is 1200 Mpc long. That’s four billion light years. Four BILLION LIGHT YEARS. Just to travel from one side to the other of this one thing. I mean for fuck’s sake, the universe is only about 14 billion years old! How many of these things could there be? 
Right now it looks like the Cosmological Principle might be out the window, unless physicists can find some way to make the existence of this new LQG work with the math (and boy, are they trying). And that’s totally baffling. It would mean—well, we don’t have any idea what it would mean. That the universe isn’t essentially uniform? That some ‘special’ physics apply/applied in some places but not in others? That Something Happened that is totally outside our current ability to understand or quantify stuff happening?
By the way, no one lives there. The radiation from so many quasars would sterilize rock.

He sets the body on the ground and goes back, and returns with another, and another, and another. 

Old Bruce has had the same nightmare for decades, and it isn’t about his parent’s dying either.

I desperately hope Batfleck is going to be a post Jason Batman, because really Jason’s death defines the bat mythos far more than his parents dying ever did. This would make a great dream sequence for Dawn of Justice »

"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."

Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.

And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

We are book eight.
