So herein shall lie all of my fandom nonsense. What exactly that entails shall change wildly depending on my moods, but it's safe to say that it will be INCREDIBLY nerdy, considering that this is an offshoot of a science blog over at migratingmeanders.tumblr.com.

Hey crocheting peeps! my mother in law inherited this afghan a few years ago. I would love to know what it is…
Does anyone know what stitch this is?

I don’t know what it’s called, but after some careful study of the photo I think I’ve figured out how to do it! (I have a tiny two-row swatch that looks pretty close to what you have here, so at least this should get you closer to your goal.)My starting chain was a multiple of 7 plus 3 for your first dc. Dc in the fourth chain from the hook, then dc two more times. this is the first little “step”. 
Skip three chains. Slip stitch in the top of the fourth chain, then chain three.  Dc in the next three stitches, then skip three chains and slip stitch to the fourth chain again. Continue doing this until you have enough “up” steps. 
To make a “down” step, at the end of the three dc of your top step/point, chain three and slip stitch to the next stitch. Then skip three chains and double crochet in the next three stitches. Repeat this to get the same number of “down” steps as you have “ups” and you should get the nice zigzag you see in the photo.If anyone decides to make another full-sized blanket out of this, let me know if those instructions work for a full (not-two-hasty-rows) project!

Theory:

Peter Quill actually only had trouble holding the infinity stone because he’s half Terran.

A fully human Terran would have done much better.

I mean, Jane Foster had the aether inside of her in Thor 2, and that seemed pretty potent (and potentially could have been another infinity stone, besides).

In fact, considering all of the mutants and badassery and whatnot that abounds in the Marvel universe, and the heavy-hitters Terrans can produce with just a little genetic tweaking or gamma radiation, it’s possible that Asgard took to ‘safeguarding’ Midgard in the first place because Odin figured out that the natives are scary as balls.

Maybe during the war with the frost giants, certain humans started manifesting strange/special abilities to deal with the threat, and Asgard’s scientists/wizards/etc figured out that the poor puny Midgardians were like a sleeping monster, and the aggression of the frost giants was ‘waking them up’.

So Odin stepped in to stop them and to try and keep people from interfering with Midgard as much as possible, so the monster would stay sleeping.

Which is actually part of why he is so very pissed off at Loki for the events of Avengers, and at Thor for bringing Jane to Asgard - it’s a very, very tight secret that Midgard is a powder keg full of potential super-warriors, and Odin does not want that getting out, and he does not want them getting out. If Earth can stay as a nice, quiet, backwater planet with very little contact with the larger universe, that’s safer for everyone involved.
