there’s a few reasons why i think the use of ‘yours’ and its ambiguous meaning was super intentional. amongst them are:
spock’s line could’ve been phrased so many other ways 
kirk’s reaction
like- spock’s called him his friend before, so why would it shake him up so good unless they really did intend for that double-meaning of ‘yours’? ANSWER ME THAT, NERDS! 
not to mention the reoccurring theme of ownership in SFS

i hahATE THI S SHOW!!!!

Vulcans only have one word (T’hy’la) to represent “friend, brother(sibling), life-long companion, and/or lover”
It’s been pointed out that the translation between the Vulcan and English language isn’t precise because of words like this, and because the Vulcans don’t have any individual words for these English definitions they use them all to represent their t’hy’la as they’d use t’hy’la to represent them all.
(I’d like to point out that Vulcan’s do not appreciate being touched, unless by their t’hy’la. Constantly, Spock permits Jim to touch him, hug him, grab him, without even addressing the touch with a glance. In return Spock has grabbed, and hugged, and touched Jim as well, and gotten emotional over him.)
It’s canon that in 2273, Spock thought/thinks of James T. Kirk as his t’hy’la, and mentally said goodbye to him as he prepared to receive his “symbol of total logic”.
(TOS novelization: The Motion Picture)”Jim! Goodbye, my…my t’hy’la. This is the last time I will permit myself to think of you or even your name again.”"And on the bridge - Kirk! The mere name made Spock groan inwardly as he remembered what it had cost him to turn away from that welcome. T’hy’la!”
Gene Roddenberry himself said
Roddenberry: “I definitely designed it as a love relationship… That was the relationship I tried to draw. I think I also tried to draw a feeling of belief that very few of us are complete unto ourselves. It’s quite a lovely thing… where two halves make a whole.”
(At this time I’d like to remind you that Spock’s first name (S’chn) means: from the captain and his last name (Spock, of course) means: resembling half of eachother’s heart and soulin Vulcan.)
Interviewer: “There’s a great deal of writing in the Star Trek movement which compares the relationship between Alexander and Hephaistion to the relationship between Kirk and Spock - focusing on the closeness of the friendship, the feeling that they would die for one another…”
Roddenberry: “Yes, there’s certainly some of that - certainly with love overtones. Deep love. The only difference being, the Greek ideal - we never suggested in the series - physical love between the two. But it’s the - we certainly had the feeling that the affection was sufficient for that, if that were the particular style of the 23rd century.”
"we certainly had the feeling that the affection was sufficient for that"

oh my god

As a person from California, this is 100% accurate

As a person from Michigan, this is 100% accurate

As a person from England I was so confused because I forgot you use the Fahrenheit system 

50 degrees in England 
100 degrees in England

 

I don’t know why I found the skeletons so funny, it’s almost like they’re dancing really sarcastically?

they’re british skeletons of course they’re dancing sarcastically.

Just in case anyone thought this was legit. This is fake and also made up and not real.

"where’s your homework"


Art is weird…it’s not /that/ weird. Learn more about it…with The Art Assignment.

Yeah, just to be clear, this post is fake. To quote my brother, “It is amazing to me that fine art is so misunderstood and opaque and seemingly disconnected from reality that people think it’s possible to sell nothing for a million dollars. Especially when in fact art is deeply tied to and influenced by culture…it reflects and defines culture and is vibrant and wise and has depth and beauty. And it includes all of the stunning creations we reblog here on Tumblr all the time.”
I think the art world is partly to blame for this, because it too often operates in a bubble and cultivates its elitism, when really the ideas and aesthetics that fuel contemporary art, as I hope we’re showing with the art assignment, are tremendously relevant to contemporary life. 
So the whole “Modern art sucks” narrative (by which people usually mean contemporary art) is, like my recent Batman diss, totally unfair and oversimplified, but it also seems like a reasonable intellectual position to take given the way that the world of contemporary art usually presents itself to people who don’t spend a lot of time with contemporary art. 
Anyway, this whole problem is what inspired Sarah to create The Art Assignment in the first place.
