Astronaut Wears Firefly, Star Trek Shirts In First Instagrams From Space

Was NASA astronaut Steve Swanson, currently residing on the ISS, already wearing this Firefly t-shirt (“Shipping & Logistics: Everything’s Shiny”) when he decided to take the first Instagram sent from space? Or did he decide to take the pic and then think “Wait, this could be even more nerdy. Time to go change!” Either way, gotta love it.

For the second Instagram taken from space, by the way, Swanson wore a t-shirt featuring the symbol of the Klingon Empire. Should we be worried about his allegiances? Check that one out behind the jump.

It’s Hard To Say Goodbye When Our Favorite TV Shows Overstay Their Welcome

I have a confession to make: When The CW made the announcement it would be renewing Supernatural for its tenth season with no end in sight, I groaned. Audibly. It’s not because I dislike the show. On the contrary, I hold the Winchesters near and dear to my heart. I pause in respectful silence any time I hear “Carry On Wayward Son,” but I’m worried about my beloved series going down in a depressing spiral of mediocre episodes. Nobody wants that.

Sometimes, as fans, we just have to let go.

Geek Lip Balm for Half a Dozen Fandoms Probably Smells Great

According to Geek Fire Labs, Loki smells of peaches and honey, Katniss of cinnamon and french vanilla, Marceline of strawberries, and your patronus of white chocolate, vanilla, and mint. I don’t have problems with any of these, and if you feel the same way, you can buy their charmingly decorated lip balms on Etsy, alone, in a batch, or as a gift set with cute buttons.
