little dramatic things i love about garak

  • breaks into bashir’s room when he literally could have just knocked
  • thinks appearing as a traitor is a great way to help your friends
  • will have a petty argument in the middle of a countdown to death
  • fashion always on point but still chooses to dress like a watermelon every now and then
  • quotes shakespeare in the middle of a space battle
  • decides in the moment that genocide is a great way to handle difficult situations, and doesn’t care if he dies in the process
  • judges everyone’s fashion sense, no matter the circumstances
  • hits on bashir the very first time he sees him and comes on a little too strong
  • really, he just needs to know that he looks good
  • commits actual murder on more than one occasion and always gets away with it
  • seriously, how does he always get away with it? is it his smile?
  • smiles like he’s going to eat you but is also stuck in Retail Mode™ 50% of the time
  • quotes john keats at customers
  • can make anything an innuendo
  • breaks into bashir’s holosuite when he literally could have just asked
  • wrote an entire novel as a response to a letter from bashir

Anyone working retail feels like Garak. You act oh so nice but you’re secretly thinking about murder.

Garak only likes two Shakespeare plays. The first is Julius Caesar, which he sees as a cautionary tale about being thorough in your schemes, and laments that Cassius didn't take out all those who might oppose him. The second play he likes is Othello. He correctly sees the play as a tragedy. But he thinks the protagonist is Iago.

Thought experiment: what if we took other people's intuitions as seriously as our own?

Both thought experiments essentially begin by assuming their own conclusions and using them as evidence. Particularly dumb stuff, a hallmark of mediocre philosophy. The very fact they could reach opposite conclusions with virtually the same experiment shines a bad light on them both.

It's a thought experiment about thought experiments...

It wouldn't prove anything - all you need is some part of a brain that creates a delayed feedback loop and you don't need external senses for self-stimulating thought, and yet there is no soul needed in that scenario.

If various companies think that pulling their content from Netflix so they can host their own streaming service will make them sign up to theirs then they are wrong. It will just make me pirate their content again.

This is the funniest and most thoughtful I’ve ever seen an organization use a meme and it’s good people with good goals who don’t just want your money on top of it

This is fucking hilarious, heart warming, relevant to my interests, and I’m gonna start crying

Okay, but like, it worked?

Hah, solid choice. I'd go with buying calling cards to make long distance calls via pay phone.
