Completely unrelated, does anyone know of a bulk Flickr downloader? I'm willing to write one myself, I just don't want to bother if there already is one.
Reality: this is a potato. potatoes are not even fruit.
American journalism: seems to be an apple, then. our readers will be excited to know this.
“Francis does not fit neatly into American categories.”... “We have this culture-war frame that has built up over the last 40 years, which has very carefully portrayed Catholicism as a bearer of conservative personal and ethical and medical moral values, and has downplayed John Paul II and Benedict’s radical critiques of free-market fundamentalism and militarism. Both were very outspoken on those things.”
The real space program is exactly like that, damn it, and it's nice to see a movie get that so right at last. The movie doesn't call attention to it, they just do it, which is exactly how it should be. (This is surely in part because the source novel does the same; it's just one of many things Weir absolutely nailed.)
It was something I really loved about that work. I drove rovers with people from Italy, from Taiwan, from Mexico, from India, from Ghana. I loved that in part because it felt like being on the bridge of The Enterprise, and also because ... well, it just felt right.
It took me a long time to realize why: it was because in a perfect world, a world in which racism and sexism played no role, that's what the team would look like. High-quality gray matter is distributed without regard to race or sex, so if you just went around the world choosing the perfect people for the work, you'd naturally end up with just that sort of diverse team.
It still wasn't perfect, but it was very very very good, a taste of how the world should be. And will be. Kudos to Ridley Scott for showing us all that world.
