Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

I’ve been promising updated maps for months, and here they are.  You can see my other maps at this page,   Please see the following posts for more details about each map.

 The final mileage is as follows (based on  the trip calculator at http://www.distancescalculator.com/):

Miles traveled in the Impala by season:

  1. 20,290
  2. 27,225
  3. 14,390
  4. 15,383
  5. 27,498
  6. 19,249
  7. 9,957
  8. 44,290

Total mileage for the first 8 seasons on the Impala: 178,282.

However, in season 1 we see the Impala’s odometer, and it has 70,098 miles showing on it in.  If we subtract the known mileage from before that episode, when Dean first visited Sam at Stanford, his odometer probably read somewhere near 58,081, for a total of 236,363.

But the odometer on the Impala only has 5 digits, so we have to assume that it has turned over a few times, with John and Dean driving it for hunting purposes since 1984.

If we average the mileage per year we get a mean of about 22,285.  If we assume that kind of mileage since 1984 (minus a few years for things like Dean parking it in Indiana for a year, etc.), the Impala probably has around 534,846 miles on it.  Give or take.  And this is just known highway mileage, not including driving within cities.

I fucking love this.

I see what you did there

Rose Tyler broke the TARDIS, stared into the Vortex, committed a genocide, raised a guy from the dead and made it so he couldn’t die, and almost got herself killed in the process, forcing the Doctor to take the Vortex into himself and regenerate, and all just so she could see him again and not be left behind by him (she claimed it was for the world, but Bad Wolf confirmed that she basically ripped time and space apart at the risk of causing incredible amounts of damage to the universe so she could be with him). For this, the fandom calls her a “hero”, a “strong, independent woman”, and “the Doctor’s One True Love.” She is considered a feminist icon.

Clara Oswald jumped into the Doctor’s time stream, knowing it would rip her into millions and millions of pieces and ultimately kill her. She knew she would die hundreds, if not thousands of times to save the Doctor, even if the women who died were only echoes. And she saved him not so that she could be with him and continue having adventures in time and space, but so that the Doctor’s victories would stay victories and the world would keep turning. She said goodbye to him knowing that this would be the last time she would ever see him, at least the real her. For this, the fandom calls her “a weak character whose entire life revolves around the Doctor”, “one of Moffat’s cookie cutter women” (?), and “an annoying special snowflake that no one cares about.” She is considered antifeminist.

Is it just me, or is there an incredible double standard here? Or does feminist now mean “selfish, destructive, and slightly obsessed?”


I have been waiting for someone to say this for what seems like forever.

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of Clara. But I really don’t understand when people say she is a sexist character.

Does the staff actually ever reply to posts or is that just a myth?

No one will believe you.
