“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street. A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

Exactly.

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.

I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.

the thing about misha’s portrayal of leviathan that impresses—and creeps me out—most is the fact that if you look at his eyes in these shots, it doesn’t look like cas, and it doesn’t even look like misha.

there’s something dead about his eyes here that just freaks the shit out of me. it just looks like there’s something behind his eyes, rather than in them. he’s empty and hollowed and there’s something else inside him. 

the fact that misha can do that with just his eyes is incredible to me.

thank you for also noticing. its the whole reason why i loved levi-cas. his eyes look darker somehow and at first.i thought they did something digitally but i’m convinced it was all misha

Plus the fact that he was severely ill whilst filming that scene makes me love his acting a whole lot more

and its really hot 

I JUST LOVE MISHA’S ACTING OKAY

Friendly reminder that the confusion and fear in Dean is actually Jensen’s real reaction because this is not how they rehearsed this scene and Misha scared the crap out of him with it

^

Honestly Misha amazes me. His Castiel is so different from Jimmy, from Emmanuel, from Levi!Cas. It’s amazing. You could show me pictures and I could tell you which character was which.

Although young Ned knew he couldn’t taste the pie, lest the fruit rot again, he didn’t care. The mere smell of it made him feel, if only for an hour, exactly like he wanted to feel: safe and warm and loved. Which is why he became The Pie Maker.

no

the world is NOT a beautiful place

there is a fish that swims up urethras, anglerfish males dissolve their own face and turn into a gonad in order to reproduce, and there is a bug that drills his dick into the female because they don’t have vaginas

the world is a horrifying place
