I would like to thank a myriad of people in childfree for repeatedly praising this TV series.
I would like to thank rekenner for directing me to a torrent site I could download it from.
It didn't take me long into the first episode to start liking it - and near this end, I had this overwhelming sense of déjà vu - seconds later I realized I had previously seen that part - my mind raced - where, when? - It's a fairly new series, there's no way it could've aired in Norway yet, and I don't watch TV.
It was on the TV while I was in Florida.
And I remember wishing I could have seen the entire thing from the beginning, so I could have context. I didn't watch it until the end that time, just those few minutes.
I love it already. I love the doctor who can hate humanity, but labor to save a single life. That's how I feel.. each single life is infinitely precious, but humanity as a whole can just curl up and die for all I care. It's one of those things that both make sense and not at the same time.
Reminds me of that scene in Bleach where Rukia is trying to get Ichigo to commit to the duty of a shinigami.. to save them all, not just the ones in front of his eyes. I know that if someone was dying in right in front of me I'd try to save them. Couldn't just stand there and do nothing.. But I have no desire to save humanity.
I was browsing through sluts4choice earlier today, and came across a link to a site with abortion "facts".. pro-life slanted. Watched a well made flash video inform that "Since 1973, over 40 million children have lost their lives to abortion." (And that's just in the United States, according to this site)
And all I could think of is how thankful I am that those lives aren't burdening the earth. I am also glad I am not religious, and thus I don't have to worry about going to hell for thinking that. <_<
Don't get me wrong, I think abortions are horrible things. But I think the same thing about pregnancy and childbirth. I wish people would eliminate the need for abortions, but a lot of people have no sense of responsibility. And accidents happen. I wish it was easier and cheaper to get sterilized.
Does my anti-reproduction stance offend anyone? I'd like to say "comment anonymously if you want" but there's no such thing as anonymous here. With the IP address, I could probably figure out the poster's identity. No one else would know, but I would.
I wish LJ had a setting for logging the IP addresses of non-friends. I don't log the IP addresses of registered users as a courtesy and sign of trust, but I'd really just like to extend it to friended users, not everyone. Anyone who would comment less or stop commenting if I started logging all IPs?
I sometimes don't comment where I normally would in communities where logging is enabled - particularly to that jerk who kept spamming his gmail invites in katamari_damacy. I mean jeez, talk about inappropriate. But I didn't want him to have my IP address, so I stayed silent.
Yare yare.. another long entry from me today. Am I bothering anyone? Am I bothering anyone by constantly asking if I am bothering anyone? =P
Heading to bed in a few minutes, good night people. <3
