An interesting Tumblr thread imagines what could happen with an alien invasion vastly underestimating the power of earth's wildlife, in the face of an attack. How about that bacteria, though.
It's compelling and somewhat flattering to think of Earth as the most dangerous place in the galaxy, with humans being the only ones crazy enough to tame it. This thought brings fun ideas such as the idea of humans as super resilient space orcs, or the idea that aliens trying to invade Earth could be stopped by local wildlife. It's informative, fun, and somewhat self indulgent.
Being the center of attention in a lot of fantasy and sci-fi, human beings tend to enjoy a certain "je ne sais quoi" quality about them that lets them get away with amazing shit. In a discussion of humans in the Star Trek Universe specifically, this Tumblr thread went hard in the paint on what makes humans amazing and entertaining in that particular universe. It's a fun read and kinda makes you feel good to be human. In a similar vein of "humans are awesome," here's another thread on how humans are basically Space Orcs.
There's no doubt that The Matrix is one of the best films ever made. Released in 1999, visual effects of such high quality were virtually unseen before. But would The Matrix be as good if it's visual effects weren't as good? After watching Studio 188's low cost version of The Matrix, we can say, YES. This low budget version of the classic is as good (or better?) than the original, purely because of the creativity that went into recreating The Matrix on a low, low budget. And it will have you crying with laughter. This will make your week.
If you're a fan of "nerd-sh*t" like the Marvel cinematic universe, Star Wars, or Lord of the Rings, you'll definitely find some pleasure in these memes. From current events-related jokes (RIP Spider-Man) to all-around relatable humor, these memes have something for everyone. Well, everyone as into these fandoms as we are.
Star Trek is just one of those cult classics that'll forever remain timeless. And while some of us are passive fans who simply grew up watching the show, others are die-hard fanatics who travel to conventions around the country. We hope that no matter which type of fan you are, that you can appreciate these memes!
Hey nerds! Have you been sleeping on the incredible Twitter account @AwfulFantasy? It's as if The Onion started writing 280 character articles about science fiction and fantasy. As one can imagine, the passages range from devilishly clever to laugh-out-loud hilarious. We've put some of our favorites together here, but for more of their five years of content, go ahead and peruse their Twitter.
Yeah, yeah. We realize that Ewoks and Jawas are reasonably cute, but there's something about Star Wars in playful comic for that takes things to the next level. This is the wholesome sci-fi comic we've been on the hunt for. The artist behind these whimsical drawings doesn't limit himself to Star Wars material, so if you like what you see take a look at the rest of his work here.
Cracked writer Daniel Dockery went to twitter to share the time he tried getting a girl's attention by writing a sequel to her favorite movie. The effort was there, but so were time travel and Star Wars references. Things went about as well as the first Titanic.
