ONLY WINNERS GET SPACE ROCKS, TIMMY!~ If you win at the 2014 Winter Olympics- you won’t be going for the gold– you’ll be going for the METEORITE THAT INJURED MANY AND LAYED WASTE TO EVERYTHING IN IT’S PATH! The medals at the olympics in Russia will be made out of the meteorite that landed in Chelyabinsk. MEDALS made out of a METEORITE! I’ve never wanted a medal so bad in my life. I also think that is very Russian: What should we do with the giant meteor that injured thousands and laid waste to an entire city? Break it down and give it away as prizes. That’s hella metal, Russia. [Geekosystem]

REMEMBER THAT TIME NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON DEFEATED THE ILLUMINATI AND THEN FLEW INTO SPACE?~ I remember (only because it’s a recurring dream of mine). Neil deGrasse Tyson is rebooting Carl Sagan’s The Cosmos. He’ll pick up where Sagan left off– teaching us all about science and making us kind of fall in love with it. But, if you DIDN’T know that before you saw the Cosmos trailer, you would just assume it was some sort of amazing choose-your-own-adventure starring Neil deGrasse Tyson. In MY version, Neil pilots a spaceship, goes back in time, fights off wolves, meets Galileo, goes to the FUTURE, triggers a bunch of explosions, and becomes the leader of The Resistance (where I’m sure he teaches them about science and the magic of the Universe). BADASS. Neil deGrasse Tyson makes The Doctor look like a chump. [TheMarySue]
