"This is a tool. Like a hammer or a shovel, just a lot more complicated. Just because you don't understand something at first doesn't mean it's the magic of the gods." - Dr Daniel Jackson, Stargate SG-1, S9E5, The Powers That Be

This quote from the character is a response to an ill-stricken villager's question in the episode on how Vala Mal Daran managed to heal him using a Goa'uld healing device.

This was also shortly after Daniel Jackson had a public debate with a Prior of the Ori on the topic of what makes a god.

The episode was rather interesting because it often resembles the debate we often have in the real world when a secular person and a non-secular person argue over whether or not any particular religion should be enforced.

Of course the episode itself is not exactly mirroring the real world debate when it comes to minor details, but it did show some parallels when looked as a whole.

When debating with the Prior of the Ori, Jackson said that hoarding knowledge may be wrong, but it also might not be wrong. That perhaps finding that knowledge for yourself is part of the journey towards enlightenment. I think what Jackson was alluding to was that you need to think for yourself rather than let someone else think for you.

I'm starting to see now why I love watching this show over and over again. I don't know if the producers intended this or not, but Stargate seems to teach that there are no true gods and that in trying to define what makes a god only serves to complicate things.

What do you guys think?

Think of your current age. Then think about which vocaloid would be appropriate for you based on that age if you wanted to date one. Yes, you can choose any Utau as well. Yes, you can go all yaoi or yuri if that's what floats your boat.

In my case, it would be Kasane Teto. I just turned 31 this past weekend and I just realized that Teto is my age despite her very young appearance. Then again, people confuse me for a 21 year old still.

PS: Yes, people still ask for my ID when I told them my age.

I just had a crazy ass thought.

What if there was a crossover between Sword Art Online and No More Heroes?

Also, who would be the better swordsman? Kirito or Travis Touchdown?

Apparently while doing a search for #HatsuneMiku in #DUST514, I ran into this result. Miku has a lot of alts.
