Just to emphasise, in the space of 12 months they assessed TWO PATIENTS.
IN A YEAR.
Between December 2019 and 2020, the NHS Gender Identity Clinic in Exeter received 495 new referrals, discharged 14 patients, and assessed 2 people.
The waiting list is nearly six years long.
The state of British trans healthcare is unconscionable. https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/712701/response/1707560/attach/2/Freedom%20of%20Information%20Response%2020%2021%20194.pdf
That entire setup was just to make the parallel between “The whole world’s a stage” and stages in Smash Bros okay.
Finally got around to watching The Owl House and it’s such a hella good show and this scene makes my heart sing okay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLT37qQG8TY
State Department thing re: Trump's term ending is probably a hack or similar.
1) The date is written as a timestamp (which ain't how humans write dates). It's also in UTC.
2) The page didn't exist before today.
3) Trump's bio lives on http://whitehouse.gov, not the DoS site.
The Defiant and NX-01 Enterprise are especially bad for point 2, where the helmsman literally sits in the middle of the captain's sightline with only a couple of inches (if that) of height difference. Pretty poorly thought out layout, tbh.

Like, those both seem like pretty fundamental practical considerations that the others just don't have??
This tweet was prompted by two main things I noticed:
1) Voyager is the only 90s Trek hero ship where all the bridge officers can use a console without first having to turn around to face a wall.
