    Last Sunday I made a short trip to a historic fortress of Bourtange, just across the dutch border and close to the town of Groningen NL.

    While walking around, I was remembered of my good cantina fellow @Master_Farkaz.

    How have you been lately, old friend? Is your food still molesting you?

    Yeah, that's quite beautiful!

    Hey there @Star Dude, I'm doing fairly well. :)
    Nope, the tables have turned! I'm now molesting my food... :D

    Gorgeous! You have a gift at photography @Star Dude!

    Did you encounter a knight at the windmill name Don Quixote? ;)

    No... He's no longer welcome in our country! :D
    After damaging several of our "preciousss" windmills, he was gently escorted to the border and kindly informed that his presence in our lands was no longer appreciated! :p

    If someone is going to solicit and spam, they might as well spell correctly! Good grief.

    Hi everyone. I hope things are going well in these times. May we achieve the goal of goodness.

    I've just thought of how a lightsaber could work. No, really... But I might be over thinking it, idk... But think about it... Or laugh me to the garden, idc.
    I've seen various ideas on how they could be made. But what if it's actually, much, much more basic to what we think.

    Let's say that the 2 main crystals used. By themselves they are harmless. But, are extremely radio active and become almost unstable when grinding on each others surface, like an extremely rare crazy piezo crystal. Mixed with something worse than uranium or caesium.
    These crystals (when pressed together) emit a field of radiation which can cut, and it glows, and it hums. Essentially, the entire lightsaber just had to have 1 function, which would be opening the entrance to the radiation field. The rest of the lightsaber is just a bunch of shielding / Faraday cage-like layers, from the radiation, with some added flex for hand pressure, to stimulate the crystal pressure. And maybe batteries, or a USB to charge stuff. Jk, but you see what I mean?

    This would eliminate so many things from previous designs. No need for heaps of wires, or hose connections. This design means that a Jedi, without heaps of tools needed, could make one of these things. Still dangerous, if these crystals exist. I bet something like them do actually exist. Or could at least be made synthetically.
    Am I missing something? Obviously.

    realistically, lightsabers would have to adhere to something like that. The main problem i usually find with lightsabers is cauterization. Realistically, cutting someone in half would produce a lot of blood. Therefore, i think that the blade would have to be made up of some star wars equivalent of uranium, and they only become unstable on contact. This would explain why lightsabers give off no heat, as they would only activate while slicing through something, activating multiple times to produce the level of cauterization we see now. Of course, their insides would be obliterated though.

    This past month I've convinced myself to ship three ships that aren't even possible.

    The first was CW's Supergirl and some version of Peter Parker. Most likely the PS4 version. Kara's a dork and Peter's a nerd, it's a match made in heaven. Both are so down-to-earth and relatable, and their powers would make superheroing seem more like a fun date at time - just imagine them talking about the previous night's episode of The Bachelor as they save cats from trees, j-walkers from distracted drivers, and other "pedestrian" crimes! Peter's not the type of guy who would be intimidated by woman who makes more money than him or is stronger than him, and Kara would have someone who accepts where she is. Long distance relationships wouldn't be a problem given Kara's superspeed and flight, and maybe that sort of relationship would finally convince Peter to take a day off! And on the romance side...Peter may not be as...sturdy as a Kryptonian, but he's sturdier than most...and now I feel weird and need a shower. Also, Peter's interest in technology and Kara's knowledge of xenotech and overall background as a Kryptonian would be super fascinating to him. On the flip side, Kara can talk all about her past with someone who will listen! (Also, Peter geeking out with Barry during the annual crossovers is something I NEED in my life.*)

    The second ship is Dedue and Constance from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I imagined how a support between them would work, and then I wrote it out; and now I ship them. Dedue is so taciturn and blunt while Constance's style of speech is far more chatty and aristocratic, almost to the point of archaic. It was really fun to work off of that dynamic. And seeing them bond over flowers and a shared sort of spirit was really cool. So yeah...I ship it.

    Lastly, about fifteen minutes ago, I decided I ship Deke Shaw from Agents of Shield with Nora West-Allen from CW's The Flash. I think the two would just be adorkable together. Both are so out of place in their current environments, and I think they'd have fun just being like time-travel tourists. It'd be hilarious.

    And with these three ships, my list of impossible ships grows longer (others include Zuko x Toph, M!Robin x F!Corrin (although one could make the case that Fire Emblem Warriors makes this possible), Luke Skywalker x Tula Markona, and Rosa x Doug Judy).


    So for you shippers out there, what ships do you have that will never happen?


    *I can just imagine the two comparing their similar life experiences and goals, and then whichever is older (most likely Barry) treating the other one like a little brother. And then Oliver quickly comes to respect the Webhead after he learns that Peter's been all on his own in the superhero game since he was fifteen, and built all of his own stuff. And then Felicity and/or Iris comes in and teases Kara for having a type...I could go on, but y'all get the picture.

    Just had a fun little debate with my best friend (I haven't talked to him in a while...I need to write him an email soon) about whether the 4th Hokage would win or Itachi would. A classic debate, for which we fall on differing sides, predictably. He thinks Itachi would win, I think the 4th Hokage would. It ended up devolving into memes and jokes, which was exactly how it should have ended.
