- Cecil (episode 1): Carlos said we are the most scientifically interesting city in America!
- Carlos: This alternate dimension is the most scientifically interesting place I've ever seen!
Can’t believe people haven’t noticed that Cecil isn’t a perfect baby by now. He never ever was. He always drank, he was always vitriolic and prone to anger, his love can be bought with gifts, he’s nearly killed Telly, actually sent interns to their deaths, all sorts of shit.
That doesn’t mean that’s ALL he is, though. Cecil’s got his good points, he’s still the guy with the soothing voice, he’s protective of the people and animals he cares about, and he still loves his community, he’s just a product of that community. I don’t think it’s wise of us to go around trying to judge someone who is so far-flung from our own webs of morality using those moral standards.
Also, what have we learned? Perfection isn’t real. And if Cecil was perfect, he’d be boring as hell. I just don’t understand why some people are surprised that he’s always been the way he is. It’s kind of what makes him interesting.
So much this.
How Cecil thinks Carlos does science:
How Carlos actually does science:
i hope cecil has at some point been walking down the street with carlos in the middle of the day and he looks up and sees
and just loses it
"IT’S DAYTIME! WHAT IS IT DOING UP THERE, CARLOS? IT’S STILL THERE!! IS IT NOT SATISFIED WITH LOITERING UP THERE BEING ALL FANCY AND ‘OH, LOOK AT ME, I’M THE MOON!’ AT NIGHT, SO IT’S JUST HERE NOW?? THAT JERK!!”
So I truly believe the ice bucket challenge is awesome, and the amount of people who have done it and donated to research for ALS is phenomenal. You guys are fabulous.
But I want to see people take it a step further.
In addition to donating, state ten facts about ALS during your video. This way you are not only spreading awareness, you are spreading knowledge.
If you are reading this, you have survived your entire life up until this point.
You have survived traumas, heartbreak, devastation, the elements, different phases of life. And here you are.
You go, motherfucker. You’re awesome.
