Community, Life, and Memes: Nevada City Becomes First In The World To Enforce Chemtrail Free Zone New law will prevent chemtrails in city skies By: lacky Murphy on 8th July 2016 40am © press CHEMTRAIL Free Zone LOOK UP ANY PERSON CAUGHT WITH OHt Nevada city has now declared it will be a Chemtrail free zone according to City Hall insiders. Nevada City, CA — As the city council seats with new members this year, notably controversial community activist Reinette Senum, first on the agenda according to City Hall insiders will be a declaration that Nevada City is a Chemtrail-free zone. This will make the rustic gold rush town the first in the nation to enact such a law. “It’s clear that the global elite are trying to control everything,” said Green Party member Derrick Packard speaking after the swearing-in ceremony. “We need to demonstrate to the world that the buck stops here in Nevada City. If you control the skies, you control life.” Learn More When asked what impact a local ordinance would have on the global chemtrail conspiracy, Mr. Packard bristled. “This is about small steps,” continued an agitated Mr. Packard. “Think global; act local. I’m sure you’ve heard that before, right? Built into the proposed ordinance is language that allows us to use the city’s general fund to sue chemtrail flyovers. We are under no illusion that this is an uphill battle, but we mean business.” According to the Nevada City Treasurer, it is unclear what the fiscal impact will be on this ordinance. However given the recent litigious and fruitless efforts by the county Board of Supervisors, legal action could run into the millions. The tab could be especially high due to the fact that there is zero evidence of any global chemtrail conspiracy, which could contribute to forensic investigations outlays reaching into the millions before the first court motion is drafted. Despite this, area activists are unrelenting. “How much is it worth to you to save your planet?” Questioned a rhetorical Mr. Packard has he pointed to the clear blue sky above Nevada City. “We want the world to know that our little town is leading the charge against the elite brainiacs who want everything for themselves. As Howard Zinn taught us [editor’s note: Mr. Packard went on for another 45 minutes discussing Professor Zinn.]” As for other pressing Nevada City business, also on the agenda is the a motion to remove all radio producing devices except for lo

I love Pippin so much.</p> </blockquote> <p>I don’t think there will come time when I’m not reblogging this. Sorry guys. </p> </blockquote> <p>no no no you guys don’t understand, Pippin <i>is</i> someone really important in the Shire! The books don’t talk about it a lot, and the movies won’t touch that stuff with a bargepole, but Pippin will be inheriting land rights to about a quarter of the Shire. He’s second in line to becoming military leader of <i>all Hobbits</i>. His dad is currently in charge of that stuff, but he’s completely aware of it, and educated for it, and that’s why he’s such an over privileged little shit in the books.</p> </blockquote> <p>I thought it was a shame the movies didn’t talk about class differences in the Shire. Also puts M&amp;P stealing food in an uglier light.</p> </blockquote> <p>To be fair, at the time of the Party, Pippin would have been 12, which puts it back into a more acceptable light.  And they’re stealing food <i>from Bilbo</i>, a wealthy and eccentric family member, which again makes things a bit different.</p> <p>But yes, when they call Pippin <i>Ernil i Perrianath -</i> Prince of the Halflings - they are actually completely spot on.</p> <p>And when Pippin tells Bergil “my father farms the land around Tuckborough” he’s deliberately downplaying his class so that he can greet the boy as an equal rather than a superior.  It’s Pippin’s most adult moment in the series.  Bergil is engaging in a status contest which Pippin can <i>totally win - </i>but instead chooses not to compete.  Pippin is a gilded and spoiled lordling in the Shire, but he becomes a Man of Gondor.</p> </blockquote> <p>Yeah, to add a bit of unnecessary trivia/level of preciseness, Frodo is the oldest of the four; he was born in 2968, was (obviously) 33 at the time of the Party, and so he’s 51 here. Sam’s second-oldest; born in 2980, he was 21 when Bilbo left and is 39 at this point. Merry’s two years younger than Sam, making him 18 or 19 in 3001, when the Party took place, and Pippin was born in 2990, so he was actually 10 or 11 during the Party, and during this scene they’re ~37 and ~29, respectively.</p> <p>So yeah, Pippin’s the youngest by a <i>lot</i>. Plus, taking hobbit aging into account, he really is still in the equivalent of his teens; remember the Party was half to celebrate Frodo’s coming-of-age at <i>33</i>, and Pippin’s around twenty years <i>younger than Frodo</i>. </p> </blockquote> <p>This fucked me up. I didn’t read the books and in the movie it was shown like Frodo took off with the ring like 2 days after Bilbo’s gone away, but it was 17 years after that. OMFG.</p> </blockquote> <p>i’m not sure if it’s ever been explicitly stated but the movie and book follow different timelines</p> <p>in the books, bilbo leaves the shire 60 years after his first adventure, giving frodo the ring. seventeen years pass before frodo sets out on his quest</p> <p>in the movies, seventeen years cannot have passed while gandalf goes all nancy drew in denethor’s basement - for one, pippin is obviously not 10 in the party scene - but the story does allow us some wiggle room - maybe a few months, even a year or two? (I DUNNO DID JACKSON EVER SPECIFY GIMMIE NUMBERS)</p> <p>this also accouts for a lot of the confusion re. aragorns age following thranduils advice to legolas at the end of BOFA - in the books, aragorn is about ten during the events of the hobbit, but in the contracted movie timeline, he tells eowyn he’s eighty seven, putting him somewhere around 27+ when legolas goes off to find him</p> <p>also i think i heard some messing around was done with thorins age? i dunno BASICALLY THE MOVIE TIMELINE IS CONTRACTED AND FUDGED AROUND WITH AS MUCH AS THE MOVIE MAPS dont even get me started on those</p> <p>BUT BACK TO PIPPIN</p> <p>so pippin does indeed become the thain, merry also become the head of <i>his</i> ginormous family - the master of buckland, in fact</p> <p>but you know whats best of all</p> <p><i>SAM BECOMES MAYOR OF THE SHIRE</i></p> <p><i>SAMWISE GAMGEE BECOMES ELECTED MAYOR OF THE SHIRE SEVEN TIMES</i></p> <p>k so to understand the importance of this you gotta remember that sam is poor</p> <p>he comes from a poor family - so poor, in fact, that i’m fairly certain that sam was the only one of them who could <i>read - </i>and only because bilbo taught him. in the very first scene of FOTR, the Gaffer (sam’s dad) says</p> <p><i>“But my lad Sam will know more about [Bilbo’s treasure]. He’s in and out of Bag End. Crazy about stories of the old days he is, and he listens to all Mr.Bilbo’s tales. Mr. Bilbo has learned him his letters - meaning no harm, mark you,and I hope no harm will come of it.</i></p> <p><i>“Elves and Dragons’ I says to him. ‘Cabbages and potatoes are better for me and you. Don’t go getting mixed up in the business of your betters, or you’ll land in trouble too big for you,”I says to him. And I might say it to others,” he added with a look at the stranger and the miller.”</i></p> <p>firstly im super fascinated by class divides in the shire - and there is a huge gap between the workers and the landed gentry- but not the bitter feud between proletariat and bourgeoisie of the industrial england that tolkien so despised. the poor of the shire are the poor of an idealised rustic england. there are no slums in the shire, and i imagine that the homeless vagrants (if they exist) are more akin to Wordsworth’s <a href="http://www.bartleby.com/145/ww139.html">Old Cumberland Beggar</a> IM SO SORRY TO BRING WORDSWORTH INTO THIS, I REALLY AM but yeah does anyone wanna talk pre industrial revolution englands social structures and how they relates to the shire cause im pretty sure thats what tolkiens aiming for here</p> <p>SORRY im off topic im talking about how hella rad it is that sam becomes mayor of the shire and pippin becomes the thain and merry becomes master of buckland and between the three of them they lead the shire into a golden age of prosperity and happiness and good external relations with gondor and arnor and rohan</p> <p>ALSO SAMS DAUGHTER AND PIPPINS SON GET MARRIED HA HA IM GONNA GO HIDE FOR A WHILE ITS TOO CUTE</p> </blockquote> <p>Basically the Shire operates Perfectly (with a few notable exceptions, like Ted Sandyman and the Sackville-Bagginses), <i>unless it is being meddled with</i>. So while Gandalf sets up the Rangers to protect the borders (not meddling), Saruman introduces trade the Shire can’t support, imports Men and industry, and <i>unseats those in charge </i>(Will Whitfoot, the Mayor, is the only Hobbit who has been in the Lockholes longer than Lobelia, and during the Scouring, the first military thing Pippin does is go to Tuckborough with some Hobbiton lads and break the siege on the Great Smial so that the Tooks can help roust Sharky.</p> <p>So, Hobbits <i>have</i> rank, but they don’t care much about it. What you do is way more important, and social mobility isn’t unheard of. The only person who ever talks down to Sam is his own father. Pippin and Merry <i>recruit him on purpose, </i>and Rosie (whose father is a landowner, which the Gaffer is not), is not even a BIT reluctant to marry him <i>before he does anything heroic</i>, just because he’s a great person.</p> <p>HOBBITS, I TELL YOU. HOBBITS.</p> </blockquote> <p>I love the Tolkien side of tumblr. You are my people</p></blockquote>
