Diogenes was the shit. He was easily one of the best philosophers ever. He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”. He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”. He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable. When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”. Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.
And here’s where it gets real.
Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over. In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him. Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes! Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”. Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”
But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones. Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave. I cannot tell the difference.” An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed. But no, not Alexander.
Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.
Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.
hopefully im not the only one suddenly wishing for an alexander and diogenes sitcom because man alex was a fucking riot itd be like a tag team of george and kramer
Oh, so women can’t dress how they want because men can’t control their sexual urges? When dogs can’t control their sexual urges, we cut off their balls.
I think I’m onto something here.
we all know what happens next
what happens i have no idea what this is
hint: 75% of the limbs in the before picture are not present in the after picture
Oh my god this looks like a hipster post but it’s just the king of hell
not enough hipster galaxy overlay
there we go
Still not hipster enough, we need some profound and meaningless words on this.
Meaningless and profound enough?

list of female reboot characters who aren’t A) mother of a main character or B) shown in their underwear at least once:
- ………….yeah I got nothin’
ANd a reminder that two of the four women in the Reboot aren’t even named within the script. So for those people who are casual fans have no idea that Winona is Winona or Amanda is Amanda.
Instead they are only known by their relationship to their sons and husbands.
Winona is George Kirk’s Sweetheart and Jim Kirk’s Mother
Amanda is Spock’s Mother, and his Father’s Whore.
Ain’t that swell?
#HOLY SHIT #that last comment #I have seen the movie multiple times and I didn’t even #I didn’t even notice that #I HAD TO GO THE TRANSCRIPT AND CTRL+F TO CHECK BECAUSE I ALMOST DIDN’T BELIEVE IT #they didn’t give AMANDA HER NAME #or Winona but they actually TOOK AMANDA’S NAME AWAY #and then KILLED HER #FUCK #FUCK THE WORLD #and they gave Uhura a first name but it was passed between male characters like an object #accidentally dropped by one and greedily picked up by the other #never given freely #EXCUSE ME I NEED TO GO PUNCH SOMETHING
I feel like there’s some really rageworthy meta potential here about how men’s names are important, but women’s names don’t matter at all (unless, as perceptively pointed out above, that name can be used by male characters to signify possession/etc).
#Think about this: we learn both Jim’s grandfathers’ names in that opening scene#neither of whom are present or ever in the movie at all#but not Jim’s mother’s name#even though she’s right there#in the scene#givin’ birth to the main character#And they couldn’t have had George tag on a ”Winona!” to any part of his dialogue?#like obviously the granfathers’ names were relevant for good reason - of course they were#but they could just have easily have mentioned Winona’s name too y’know?

Always my favorite because the “External inertial dampener” IS A SPACE VERSION OF A FUCKING PARKING BREAK.
GDI PIKE these young fresh academy kids do not get your awesome jokes.
from the original script:
WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE A VOICE ACTOR IN A THING
WHEN YOU DONT RECOGNIZE A VOICE ACTOR UNTIL THE CREDITS
WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE THE VOICE BUT DON’T KNOW THE NAME OF THE VOICE ACTOR
this man has been decapitated and all you have to say is “physics!”??? wow….
