From the Doctor Who series 4 episode “The Poison Sky”. 

Man, I miss the good ‘ole days of Doctor Who where the Doctor was actually physically repulsed by guns. It gave him character as opposed to the “I don’t like guns but I’ll use them a lot to look cool” mentality that the 11th Doctor had. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you can’t deny that the Doctor has gotten a lot more comfortable around guns since the Moffat era and I think the show has lost a little something as a result.

Now, I know the Doctor has used guns in the past and the Tenth Doctor holds a gun every now and then, but my objection is not that he uses guns, it’s that in recent seasons the Doctor seems less vocal about his dislike. The Doctor does plenty of things he doesn’t want to, what makes a difference and perhaps one of the few things that sets him apart from the people he fights is his obvious dislike and, quite often, disgust at what he feels he has to do. He killed his own people (or thought he did) because he had to and the difference between him and the Daleks is that he doesn’t want to and he was trying to save the universe. Sometimes the Doctor’s character is built less by what he does and more by how he feels about his own actions. 

THIS. This is one of the things I miss seeing in the Doctor the very most. I miss his passionate belief in non-violence, his optimism that there is always another way. I want to see this again in Twelve, because it’s been missing for a while. Too long.

What on earth are you talking about? Have you seen The Seeds of Death, Resurrection of the Daleks, or Revenge of the Cybermen, just for a few examples?

Sure, the Doctor has said he doesn’t like violence, but he’s not afraid to use it. I would think that people would think he’s not a pacifist by the time the second episode of An Unearthly Child aired. One of his companions in classic Who made bombs, and he even encouraged it at some points.

They appear to have confused Doctor Who with Batman. Again.

Margaret Thatcher

the Iron Lady

A-OKed and aided the Indian Government in a military led operation in order to attack at the most sacred ground of Sikhs, Harmandir Sahib, or more commonly known as the Golden Temple, killing hundreds of thousands innocent Sikh men, women, children, in June 1984.

The operation was disguised as an “emergency” response to supposed “militants” hiding in the Golden Temple, when the strategies of the attack had been planned for 6 months prior to the attack. “Emergency response” my ass. 

Yeah, kiss your Iron Lady’s dead arse, but don’t ask me celebrate a woman who aided in the genocide of my people.

If it’s any consolation there are many in the UK that despise the cow. Don’t celebrate the woman, celebrate the fact that the bitch is dead.

I think Margaret Thatcher is wonderful. Not only for her success in politics, but for the fact that her being a woman was not her focus in politics. She proved true equality is realistic. Equality means that being a woman doesn’t make you a good politician, being a good politician makes you a good politician. She’s so wonderful to me. All about individual success.

She also gave us the statistic that 100% of British Female Prime Ministers were total shit

6, 5, 14, 20 (find X)

I’m not sure what, if anything, find X is referring to, or if you’ve just given me a maths puzzle…

6: Something in school you really liked doing that everyone else bitched over. Science, but particularly Geology

5: A habit you find disgusting. Smoking

14: A hobby you have/find interesting that other people bother you over/make fun of. People don’t bother me over it, mainly because I acknowledge it’s a niche hobby nobody else fins interesting, but Train Spotting

20: Free rant on whatever grinds your gears at the moment. Why do people still believe Astrology and horoscopes are a thing? There absolutely no scientific mechanism for such a thing and it’s all a bunch of cold logic and can easily be disproved thorough common sense and logic. The late Carl Sagan can probably explain better than me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iunr4B4wfDA

Prime numbers

Oh christ…

1.A selection of television programs you do not care for. Torchwood Miracle day. Somewhat more controversially, Torchwood: Children of Earth. While I admit I haven’t seen either, so it’s possible I’d enjoy them if I tried them, I have no interest in watching Hannibal or Game of Thrones.

3: A selection of celebrities you couldn’t care less about. Katy Price, Rhianna, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Jones

5: A habit you find disgusting. Smoking

7: Your favourite household chore. Scrubbing stuff. It’s like the reverse of drawing/writing something, where instead of the amazement of watching ink come out of the pen its stuff being removed by a sponge.

11:A sport you really like, for whatever reason. Tennis

13: Musical artists you love but have gotten shit for liking. I haven”t really ‘gotten shit’ for liking any musical artist, but I’m a fan of Ska and that’s not the most popular thing nowadays. I like Rolf Harris’ stuff too so we’ll have to see what the court says on that.

17: the household chore that makes you want to shoot your own face off. Well that’s a tad extreme. Doing the dishes.

19: A celebrity crush that maybe even you don’t understand. Benedict Cumberbatch. His face lines don’t match up to me, I think he’s a lovecraftian eldrich monster in disguise.
