From: Red vs. Blue
Genre: Web Series
Who said it?: Capt. Lavernicus Tucker and Pvt. Jimmy
The story behind the quote: Red Vs. Blue is machinima series, which means that is uses video games (in Red vs. Blue’s case, the Halo series on Xbox) instead of using actual actors nor fancy CGI models. RoosterTeeth started making episodes for the series since way back in 2003, making it one of the longest running web series ever.
The quote comes from way back in the series’ first season episode, A Shadow of His Former Self. Church comes back as a ghost (long story) to warn the Blue team about Tex as Church had a really bad experience with the freelancer. Church retells the story of when he was stationed in Sidewinder. He was out in patrol with his partner Jimmy when his entire squad was annihilated by Tex.
According to Church, Tex beat Jimmy to death with his own skull. Of course, Tucker found this incredibly unlikely… which was the exact thing Jimmy was thinking.
Geek wisdom: There are some things that are only impossible if you think they’re impossible. Sure, it can be incredibly difficult but it can still be done as long as you keep at it. A lot of great inventions and the modern conveniences we currently enjoy were built on the things that people thought were “impossible” before, such as the light bulb or little tiny computers that could fit in the palm of our hand. But, thanks to people that question what is impossible, we have these things.
Question what is impossible.
