#okay i love that data’s programming doesn’t allow him to store idioms as frozen phrases the way that humans do#which means he must process language as its root semantic meanings not as specific vocabulary#which suggests that data’s language center in his positronic brain always goes through a translation matrix#so english slash federation standard is not data’s ‘native language’ as his native language is raw android information#it’s also suggests something interesting about the weighted priority of english vocabulary in data’s translation matrix though#since he chooses ‘ignite’ instead of ‘burn’ and ‘petroleum’ instead of ‘oil’#’ignite’ instead of ‘burn’ suggests that english words with latinate roots as opposed to germanic roots#seem to be given more weight in the selection process#both ‘oil’ and ‘petroleum’ are latinate words but data’s program has selected the more subjectively formal of the two#uh i just fell down a rabbit hole that looks like the unholy love child of optimality theory and the oxford english dictionary help me#i’m gonna think on this more carry on nothing to see here#tl;dr: data is a computer mylittleredgirl none of this should be shocking yes ok

"Okay, we’ve been serious for 10 seconds guys"
I HAVE THREE WORDS THAT WILL BRING JOY TO YOUR HEART:
little league quidditch
#all brooms fly like 3 feet off the ground#the bludgers are stuffed animals#keepers often get distracted by clouds#the seekers are better at playing tag than catching the snitch#games are over when it’s naptime
Gosh, Tony Amendola just replied to a tweet of mine and I’m laughing and smiling like a loon! Not only was it totally out-of-the-blue (my tweet is four months old, I never expected to actually get a reply! … Especially since he already did reply with a simple “thanks, all the best” back in May. Heh.) but I also think the reply was really sweet. :P
I want to see more of Jiminy and Geppetto and little Pinocchio, I really, really want more of that family dynamic. I’d be happy with a single scene with all three on screen together - Storybrooke or FTL I don’t care, I just want more of those three.
I see all your majestic gryphons on sketch_dailes and raise you a potoophon.
This makes me happy on levels that I cannot fully express.
*faints away from lack of oxygen, still smirking*
"I shake my wingfists at you!"
