“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

And the science dunce cap goes to…

The Male Brain sent over this link a few days ago, and it’s just too good not to turn into a full post. It’s all about how scientists can reach two completely different results from the exact same data set: In a test of scientific reproducibility, multiple...

Global Cooling FTW?

The latest scientific evidence of sunspot activity and the Sun’s thermal output is backing up predictions made several years ago by mathematicians, not climatologists: Because it turns out that even the Sun has gone into a lockdown ‘­recession’. Or,...

HALO needs a major revamp

Seeing as how HALO Infinite is slated for release in 2020, a full five years after HALO 5: Guardians was released – which is by far the biggest gap between flagship HALO games in the franchise – here is an interesting perspective on the ways in...

Now that’s what I call a parade!

We shitlords have been calling Donald Trump the God-Emperor for nigh-on four years now, and with very, very good reason. It is a meme with two meanings, if you know your sci-fi canons. The first has to do with the WARHAMMER 40,000 sci-fi tabletop wargaming...

Drinking games with The Last Straw

“Tweedledim the Token Stormtrooper”

John C. Wright, perhaps the greatest sci-fi/fantasy writer alive today, decided to put himself through the sheer torture of watching STAR WARS VIII: The Last Jedi recently. Judging by his reactions, the experience was even more unpleasant than he expected. His...

Even worse than expected

I did not bother watching STAR WARS Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. I swore off watching any more Mickey Mouse Wars films after I saw the high-octane yet completely pointless “remix” of the very first film, which served little purpose other than to ram a...

One for the nerds

Specifically, the Trekkies: I’m not a Trekkie, and never really have been, but I’ll say a few things about this one: DAAAAAAMN but Marina Sirtis sure as hell hit the Wall hard, eh?!? Then again… she is 62. Having a sense of humour goes a...

The monsters in the closet

Greetings from sunny Dubai!!! Where the dunes are sandy, the airport is full of all sorts of useless overpriced shit, and the women are… well, y’know. And that is about all of the chirpy cheeriness that I can summon for now- partly because I got off a...
