    And it will probably not look like that. A senior astronomer at the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) Institute insists humanity will discover alien life within the century. Of course, Bigfoot hunters always claim they're only a day from discovering that giant ... / Continue →

    Meet Warnog, an officially licensed Star Trek beer. It's a 'Roggen Dunkel' (dark rye) style beer with "notes of clove, banana and caramel." Those are not notes I generally like in my beer. Call me old fashioned (or a redneck), but I only like two notes in my beer: cheap, and... / Continue →

    This is the series of prototype Star Wars character rings designed by J.A.P. in the late 90's to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise. So you can't get them anymore. Sucks too because I really had my eye on that Rancor. Could you imagine having a pet Rancor? That... / Continue →

    This is a before-and-after shot of the mysterious rock that appeared in front of the Mars Rover Opportunity after taking pictures of the same spot twelve days apart. So many questions! Where did it come from? Okay that's actually the only question I can think of. There are ... / Continue →

    Seen here posing with my Aunt Teresa, these are the two five-foot Dalek wedding cakes baked and decorated by Dinkydoodle Designs for a couple's Doctor Who themed wedding reception. The theme for my wedding reception? End of the World Party. There won't be an open bar though,... / Continue →

    This is the alien facehugger winter mask hand-knit and sold by Etsy seller Knitrocious ($150). It looks pretty accurate. Plus nobody will think you're weird for wearing it. And if they do, send them over to my place and I'll answer the door wearing nothing but a gas mask and... / Continue →

    This is one of the cold-cast bronze facehugger light switch covers available from Etsy seller AfterlightSculpture ($25). They're perfect for a child's room. A young child's. Plus you should drape some dirty clothes over the back of a chair so at night it casts a shadow that ... / Continue →

    These are two pictures taken from the Hubble Space Telescope showing what astronomers believe to be a previously unseen kind of space object. It's described as 'a rotating asteroid with six comet-like tails'. I describe it as a spaceship. One that's going to come rescue me t... / Continue →

    This is a parody of Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' loosely translated into Klingon and performed in the style of really shitty karaoke. It boggles my mind people actually take the time to do stuff like this but won't take the time to walk their grocery cart to one of ... / Continue →

    When the UKube-1 breadbox-sized satellite is launched into orbit this December, it won't just be carrying instruments to measure radiation and space weather. No, it's going to be rocking custom Celestial Charging Station graphics that invite space travelers low on power to sti... / Continue →

    This is a video from Stan Winston Studio of creature designer Stephen Norrington discussing how the chestbursting alien was made and operated for the iconic movie scene. It's actually fairly simple and required zero CGI. Remember when movies didn't use CGI and the special eff... / Continue →

    Brass knuckles: if you use them in a fist fight it's cheating and I will stab you because if you're going to cheat I'm going to cheat even worse. The first rule of fighting is if you break a rule there are no rules anymore. Trust me, I used to do MMA. No I didn't, but I did ... / Continue →

    Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act inquiry filed by Jeffrey Richelson in 2005, the US government has finally gotten around to declassifying documents about Area 51 and its purpose. Obviously, because this is the government we're talking about, they're all filthy lies. Acc... / Continue →

    In 'hope for the future' news, astronomers have confirmed three alien planets in the habitable zone (where liquid water could exist) of a nearby star. How close is nearby? Just 22-light years -- that's only like 130-trillion miles! Humans will never set foot on these planets.... / Continue →

    This is the rat/lizard alien that the Mars rover Curiosity recently spotted on the red planet. FULL DISCLOSURE: just a rock. Now the conspiracy theorists would have you believe the government is just trying to cover up the Martian discovery, but those are the same people who ... / Continue →

    This is the Alien facehugger made entirely out of LEGO by DeviantARTist AL13N163NA, which then decided to hug dude's face and put an alien baby in him. You know how chestbursters are called chestbursters because they always hatch out of a person's chest? Well that's not entir... / Continue →

    And I would've done the same. NASA, best known for crumpling up my astronaut application and crushing a young man's dreams, apparently took the time out of the Spirit and Opportunity rovers' busy schedules of searching for alien life and taking pictures of dust to draw this gi... / Continue →

    So apparently the Miami area is fighting an invasion of Giant African Land Snails, an invasive species of gastropod that's capable of EATING THROUGH WALLS. Well, stucco and plaster anyways. Which is what some walls are made of. Unless you're the first little pig, in which ca... / Continue →

    This is Mike Doyle's (of abandoned LEGO Victorian House fame) 200,000-piece construction of K'al Yne, Odan -- a fictional alien city. It's the first in his series of 'Contact' builds, which are all about celebrating intelligent life in the universe....and stuff. Stuff way ove... / Continue →
