Given the outrageous popularity of my previous post on imaginary battle royals, I thought I would continue the trend with a geeked out thought experiment.
Who would win in a battle of Aliens? Predator or Lego Predator?
Lego Predator is immobile, plastic, incredibally geeky and has no weapons or camoflague to speak of. He does, however, posses infrared vision and can wisecrack with the Governors of various states.
The Predator is more alive and deadly than its plastic cousin and would have at its disposal all sorts of deadly alien weaponry. In the end, I think the Lego Predator wins this one, given that the lego Predator is real and the actual predator is imaginary.
Don’t write in Ron Paul for US President in 2008. Instead, choose your own president and let internet democracy become a reality this fall!
Choose from such qualified candidates as Wilford Brimley, Chuck Norris, David Hasselhoff and the 1985 Chicago Bears!
So log on and let your choice be heard. It will make you feel better about not voting in the election this fall.
Found this here and had to post about it.
The Kama Sutra for geeks and the computers that love them.
Is World of Warcraft a harmless waste of time like crossword puzzles and masturbation, or is something far, far more terrifying, like demolition derbies and pick up games of “kick the cat?”
All I know is that everyone I know IRL who plays WoW is a giant waste of space. Without exception these mouth-breathing, knuckle dragging morons live in some kind of fantasy world to distract themselves from their mediocre, impoverished, socially-awkward existence. Want to forget about your job with the name tag and the hairnet? Level up in WoW. Want to forget about your receding hairline and piles of credit card debt? Just log on for some raids in WoW. Want to forget about that tight, tingly feeling in your stomach when you look at a woman? Log on to Laughing Skull, that will make real life seem better.
I have an idea, maybe your junior-college drop-out, no money for beer and too ugly for women lifestyle would change if you paid more attention to your real life quests than your fantasy mage in WoW.
Taking a shower regularly IRL? Consider that building up hygiene points. When you run out of shampoo you can “level up” to some designer stuff instead of the Generic Drug Store Hair Care you’ve been using since the late 90’s.
Working out 3 times a week? That goes on your strength card if its weight training and agility if you add some light cardio.
Talking to girls? That’s charisma, chum. So don’t take time out of the limited existence here on earth to go playing prolonged games of make believe.
In stead, live life in the real world, where almost all of the hot girls live.
I’m on the west coast, so this is going up just in time: 3.14 1:59 PM.
I know for a fact that I’ve seen this chart of the United Federation of Planets online before.
Check out this monstrosity, which refuses to display correctly on my twenty-four inch monitor.
And apparently the
soft spoken introvert artist didn’t quite get all of his geek out the first time, because there is this heinous attempt at cartography afoot in the Tubes, along with an ENTIRE F-ING MAP ROOM DEVOTED TO A FICTIONAL UNIVERSE IN CYBER SPACE!
This is so ridiculous.
I mean, Bajor is in the Mother-Freezing Heezy! Bajor? Really?
Look Major Kira Nerys was pretty OK, I guess, so now I’m not sure what to do with all of this self-righteous internet rage I built up. Screw You, Internet, for con-fabulating me once again!

My friends and I have been having the same fan-boy argument since high school. If it came down to it, who would win in a fight: Superman or Batman?
Superman is the freaking man of steel. He’s faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, he can leap tall buildings in a single bound and still get home in time to make out with Lois. He has superhuman strength, has a bachelor pad in Antarctica named the Fortress of Solitude, can throw X-Ray and Heat vision out of his eyes, posses nigh-invulnerability, was based in part on old and new testament archetypes (part Jesus, part Moses) and he can fly. He literally can’t lose, right?
is the Dark Knight of Gotham City. After witnessing the brutal murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne dedicated his life to ridding Gotham City of crime. Batman basically cowboyed up and put his family’s financial resources to make him the world’s best detective. He is a master of the martial arts, can think on his feet and out muscle much larger opponents, has a utility belt full of insane, crime-stopping gadgets, knows all kinds of crazy science and is so smart he makes Sherlock Holmes look like George W. Bush. He is also demonstrably insane. He’s killed at least two Robins (that we know of) and has no problems offing children in order to pursue his misguided (arguably fascistic) dream of a crime free America.
So who would win in a fight? They’ve fought each other a bunch of times, most famously, perhaps in Miller’s Magnum Opus, The Dark Knight Returns, with mixed results. I think Superman takes it, no contest. But Bruce does have a Kryptonite Ring to take Clark down in case of emergency.
What do you think, who wins in a fight, the Man of Steel or the Dark Knight?
Here’s the YouTube Video that inspired this post, from howitshouldhaveended.com Really funny stuff.
And if you want to feel better about how you are living your life on the intertubes, peep the comments on this vid. Gross.
