Happy New Years Eve, Kids

31 Dec

Have a safe and happy New Years. I for one am going to be drunk enough to recall all the repressed memories that I’ve tried to forget. Oh, and here’s a picture that has absolutely nothing to do with New Years Eve.

Be safe. Don’t be stupid. Ok, maybe just 50/50.

Love,

Max Powers

Patrick Stewart to Become 'Sir' Patrick Stewart

31 Dec

Patrick Stewart, the one who plays the bald guy in every movie, shall be dubbed a Knight by Queen Elizabeth II thanks to his achievements in film, service, and for not being a jerk. Knighthood is considered the highest honor for the citizens of Britain.

“He has played kings, princes, captains and professors on stage and screen, but now actor Patrick Stewart will have a new title all his own: “Sir.”

The 69-year-old Yorkshire, England, native tops the list of those receiving New Year’s honors from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, the Cabinet Office announced Thursday.

Stewart, well-known for playing Capt. Jean-Luc Picard on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” will receive a knighthood. It means he will now be known in Britain as “Sir Patrick.””

Adding ‘Sir’ in front of any name makes it way more bad ass. Well done, Sir Patrick Stewart. You’ve become at least 3 times more badass since Hamlet.

Socially Acceptable Geek Sub-Genre Scale

31 Dec

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Every geek shall have his day?” Well it turns out that it’s only partially true–it really just depends on what type of geek you are. If you’re a gadget geek, then you’re probably really awesome, but also kind of a douchebag. If you’re an anime geek, then you’re most likely a freak and should never step outside your parents’ basement. Click the link for the list of socially acceptable geek-sub genres.

“Being a geek no longer holds the stigma it once did. In fact, it can be downright cool to be a geek these days. But not all geeks are created equal.

The Socially Acceptable Geek Subgenre Scale is a handy showcase of just where various types of geeks fall in the social hierarchy. And if you’re offended because you find yourself near the bottom of the scale, just remember: there’s no shame in being passionate about something unpopular as long as no one knows about it.”

They should make a correlation graph comparing the Geek Hierarchy to the amount of sex they’re likely to receive.
