SCIENCE!

If Thor’s Hammer Had Been Forged From A Dying Star, How Much Would It Weigh? [Video]

We know, we know. Mjölnir was forged in a dying star. However, overthinking fictional weaponry is a time-honored pastime among us nerds. The comments are open for your flawlessly cited, exhaustively researched counter-arguments.

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.

We’re Super Jealous Of These Awesomely Geeky Nail Designs

Tumblr user JeeA Lee has done some of the most amazing and intricate nail designs ever with the added bonus that they’re all super geeky! While some look fairly easy to duplicate (like the Dalek ones), others are so detailed that it’s hard to imagine how she could ever get them that way.  We bow down to her superior nail skills!

Look, I’m not going to try to explain or excuse the ’80s other than to say that they produced me, so let that stand in their favor. This was a Kickstarter, FYI.

Unused Concept Art Shows Thor 2 Almost Introduced Valkyrie

Concept Artist Josh Nizzi shared a number of unused art he produced for Thor: The Dark World, and among them are three progress shots of Valkyrie, or at the very least, a Valkyrie. While Vaklyrie is a superhero with a long history in the Marvel universe, and many incarnations within mortal women, she first appeared as about as literal a straw feminist as you can get: an pawn of the Enchantress created to divide the Avengers along gender lines by encouraging the Wasp, Medusa, Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch to embrace women’s lib. In retrospect, I assumed the issue would be kind of painful to read, but it turns out there’s no better response than laughter to the existence of a comic in which someone smashes through a window and yells “UP AGAINST THE WALL, MALE CHAUVINIST PIG” at the Hulk. That’s a line that’s really lost on any color of Hulk except perhaps this one.

It’s a pity Valkyrie (or a Valkyrie, or the Valkyries, I’m not picky) didn’t get her debut in The Dark World, but really the movie had enough on its plate already. Maybe next time. You can find two more pieces of concept art, including one with her winged horse Aragorn, at Nizzi’s page.

If You Don’t Like This Fanart of Thor and Loki as Punnily-Named Desserts Then You Need to Leave

Thor. Loki. Dessert. Puns. With a bonus piece of fanart featuring British actors including Benedict Cumberbatch, Sir Ian McKellen, Tom Hiddleston, and Matt Smith as cats. It’s like derlaine’s art takes Tumblr and puts it in a blender. And I mean that in a good way.

Just What You've Always Wanted

Mjölnir or Mew Mew? Plush Thor Hammers Shaped Like Cats

I would love to be clobbered by one of TwinsGeekShop’s hammers. They just seem so happy with everything that’s going on in their existence. The only way these could possibly be improved is if when they hit things they made an actual mewing noise. And if TwinsGeekShop wasn’t completely sold out of them.
