Heroes of Sci-Fi and Their True Loves

Rhett Hildebrandt used these graphics of sci-fi/fantasy OTPs (that’s One True Pairing, y’all) to propose to his fiancée through social media (I’ll let When Geeks Wed explain how). She said yes, but the drawings are still up on the internet for the rest of us to enjoy.

Disney Hires Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Writer For Pirates of the Caribbean 5

I’m one of those people who thinks the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise should have ended a while ago but seeing as how they are cash cows at the international box office, they’re still being churned out. The most recent news on that front is a writer has been chosen for Pirates 5. His credits include Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull and Speed 2: Cruise Control

Man Repaints Harry Potter, Twilight, LOTR Dolls To Spectacularly Realistic Effect

Have you ever been really excited to pick up an action figure or collectible doll only to look at the face and go, “meh?” (Except for that Tom Hiddleston/Loki doll, good god.) While the creators of these figures usually spend a lot of time coming up with something that looks similar to the actor who played the part, they’ve got nothing on Noel Cruz. He painstakingly repaints the faces of some already pricey dolls (Hot Toys, Tonner, etc.) to give them the realistic look we all wanted in the first place. If you like what you see, you can try and commission one from him but prepare yourself – 12 inch dolls start at $1000. He does a lot of pop-culture work but take a look at what he’s done with the characters from Harry Potter, Twilight, The Lord of the Rings, and more.

In fact, we’ve taken a look at a number of bad bosses in our list of places you shouldn’t take your daughter for Take Your Daughter to Work Day. But while fiction loves the comedy and drama of a bad boss, fiction also needs leaders and administrators who actually inspire.

10 Ways To Become Immortal

What’s to explain? Immortality. You want it.

No, don’t give me any of that crap about living longer than your loved ones or statistically if you can’t die than eventually you’re certain to get trapped in a situation where you wish you could. The human race wants to live forever. Somehow. This is why we have anti aging cream, children, art, and religion.

10 Things That Could Happen If You Pretend to Be A God

So, the heroes have come across a desert island inhabited by a tribe of people with a completely unknown culture. They don’t speak the language, they don’t recognize the food, and they have nothing to trade or protect themselves with, but they can pretty reliably guess that those spears that are pointing at them… are really pointing at them. Sounds like sudden death, right?

Not for the folks on this grid. Well, usually. Turns out, all kinds of things can happen when you pretend to be or are mistaken for a god.
