Zipper

Just had to share this picture @Odipides drew for a project I'm working on. The Zipper, is a fast moving shell fish that will hit like a torpedo, latch on and then start sucking your blood using razor sharp teeth and tongue. Damn, I'm impressed.

Diversity is like a spice Diversity is like a spice you sprinkle onto your food, in my opinion. You need to use it sparingly and logically in places and areas that make the most amount of sense cause then you can really benefit from the favouring and taste that really makes a whole lot of difference. Where as if you use too much of the spice of diversity on your food like forcing it onto everything....you make you food not taste special and instead taste crappy and stale. I use this metaphor to describe Hollywood and even the word these days where they aren’t using diversity but forced diversity. Diversity in my opinion is a good thing as I am someone who is both of Asian descent and of a mildly autistic variety of person living in the West. So I very much like diversity in society as it can help me be more accepted into society and not be seen as strange and unwelcomed. What I don’t want is forced diversity where companies and employers need to hire people just to fill some kind of blue checklist requirement quota. Cause if companies are hiring people who are minorities just to meet some kind of woke quota and I am just there to be background furniture along with several other people who are minorities there at this company and not for our skill then the employer and company are gonna go bankrupt because their company got woke, went broke and in food terms that is when food starts tasting bad and needs to be thrown out because you used too much spice in a very illogical way and it didn’t make the food taste better. Yes there needs to be diversity but that diversity needs to make sense and can bring something to the table or else it is nothing more than a paperweight taking up space that isn’t gonna help the company and employer survive to a make profit. No profit means that the diverse hire that was picked for just their race, gender, and whatever else diversity and not for their skills is gonna not get paid and gonna lose their job eventually because the company went bankrupt then go under because they hired a diverse hire that didn’t bring anything to the table to getting them more profit to keep them in business. Diversity is needed but only if that diversity was also skilled in ways that could only benefit the company or employer just like a spice if used properly rather than forced, that can bring out a taste in food that’ll benefit the person eating it. Just remember this everyone, you know why Lando was such a good diverse character in Star Wars compared to say Rose Tico....it was because Lando helped serve the story in both a very very essential plot device that moved the story forward gracefully and he had a great compelling character that evolved with the films from a cowardly man who sold out his friend, to a man who redeemed himself by becoming a hero fighting for freedom that was relatable and compelling to people. Where as Rose Tico didn’t really have that much a character, she wasn’t compelling in the least or have that much dimension to her as Lando did, she didn’t move the story along gracefully, and she didn’t change as a character from film to film and was just mostly omitted from the film after the one she appeared in. While Lando changed as a character and was essential in the following film he appeared in. Lando is a spice that was sprinkled on properly and logically into Star Wars making the audience love his taste and wanting more of him in the next film while Rose Tico was a spice just poured on too much that the audience couldn’t handle as the taste was stale and too much to handle which made the audience demand less of Rose Tico’s taste in the following Star Wars movie. Just something to think about everyone.
