you know how when you go to a concert or show of some sort and the person on stage is like “HOW’S EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT?!?!?!?!” and the audience cheers back? why? you’re not answering the question, you’re just yelling. imagine if we did that in daily conversation. “hey jeff, how are ya?” and jeff just starts screaming and clapping in your face

as the next season of doctor who approaches its time for me to wrestle with the question

does my faith in peter capaldi outweigh my distrust of steven moffat

I am familiar with that question.

APPARENTLY THEY’RE YELLING AT EACH OTHER ON SET AND THE GENERAL VIBE IS PETER CAPALDI DECLARING THAT HE WILL NOT BE CHASED OFF THIS SHOW

Based on the life of Alan Turing - a mathematician, code-breaker and pioneer of computer science.

In 1938, he began working for a secret British organisation called the Government Code and Cipher School. He helped the government decipher the German Enigma machine. He designed a machine - Bombe - that successfully decrypted the German war codes. In 1945 he was given the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services.

Post-war he turned his attention to another sort of machine, and in 1949 he developed a body of work that became the basis of artificial intelligence. In 1951 he was named as a fellow of the Royal Society.

In 1952, he was tried and arrested for being a homosexual (then a criminal offence). To avoid prison, he accepted treatment through injections of estrogen for a year that were meant to neutralize his libido. All his security clearances were also withdrawn.

He died in 1954, he committed suicide.
