like I think it's just a glitch of some sort because of the new year, and it'll be fine, cuz obviously nobody needs healthcare in the first two to three business weeks of the year

Show thread

we are two years into a pandemic can we get universal healthcare already

haha cool apparently my health insurance coverage lapsed for no apparent reason, and nobody decided to tell me. now I need to spend the next hour trying to calm myself down enough to make a million phone calls to figure out what's going on

my brain: MUST SLEEP NOW!!!

also my brain, five hours of not sleeping later: im bored

a few episodes later, they're in 2004, and tpol's concern with humans still using fossil fuels is that we're running out of them. like bestie we got more pressing issues

Show thread

still, it's the kind of playing around episode that works better in a holodeck, where the frequent allegorical tone of the franchise can be easily set aside in the interest of fun (cf kasidy yates talking with sisko about the vegas heist as "how it should have been")

their ancestors were taken in the 1860s. so idk maybe they were from a union-aligned border area, some of them vets who had just finished killing a whole bunch of slavers, and weren't inclined to show much mercy in a second round. fair enough, I suppose

Show thread

the old west episode of enterprise hits a little weird. bunch of southern-sounding white folk getting all killy about their ancestors having been stolen from their homeworld and enslaved. guess some important bits of those ancestors' own history got forgotten at some point

I'm not that conspiracy minded but the fact that UNICEF's executive director was replaced on the 10th of december with someone who is also working for the whitehouse, and now UNICEF is tweeting "reopen schools no matter what" is... interesting

ph/medical neglect 

beginning to wonder if my "it feels like I'm not breathing right, but it's not actually that" is actually that, and there was just some internalized but unremembered invalidation of that as a kid that's making me assume it isn't that

overcorrecting infrastructure from infastructure to infrarstructure

I only just now realized that I skipped TVH without realizing, because for some reason it's the only original crew film hulu doesn't have, and paramount plus doesn't have it either. I assume some arcane copyright issue 🙄

Show thread

headcanon that this isn't a coincidental phrasing. he's snarkily comparing them to the media franchise that they are all in. given that the starships enterprise are named after the shuttle enterprise which is named after ncc-1701, it isn't *that* unreasonable
