In the Future: Tesla Roadster Found in Space (Star Trek, Humor)

I never really got into this particular spinoff of the original Star Trek series, but any science fiction fan might enjoy this clip: Great isn’t it? In the original Star Trek: Voyager scene its a 1936 Ford in space. Rust? That’s right, Captain. High levels of ferric oxide corroded iron particles. Would you mind telling … Continue reading

Earth Ship Warning Light Blinking: Atmosphere Leak

The Falcon Heavy rocket was more than a publicity stunt or brilliant advertising for a car company. Don’t panic, but a warning light is blinking on our Earth ship’s console. Long range sensors show that our atmosphere is leaking away into space. Every day we lose around 90 tons of gasses from our upper atmosphere. … Continue reading

Real alien on video in car lot?

With so many people carrying video cameras 24/7, this clip is the kind of thing I’d expect to see more of if there were truly aliens among us. Thinking creatively, here’s how I’d hoax this one: film a kid in a suit doing this, then edit and replace his image frame by frame to get … Continue reading

Falling Skies Marathon

I just watched all five seasons (44 episodes) of Falling Skies, an alien apocalypse series, on Amazon Prime. Plot: Pockets of humans fight to survive after aliens wipe out most of humanity. A history professor and his family eventually save the earth.  I enjoyed the adrenaline from the frequent challenges and fights the characters face. There … Continue reading

The Tick, to Cheer You Up

Wait … Did C3PO Always Have Silver Leg?

In the original Star Wars did C3PO have a silver leg? He did now. If you have the bandwidth to do try this on, consider that what you are experiencing as “your life” might be a simulation, perhaps created by the quantum computer offspring of artificial intelligences which humans created in the past … before … Continue reading

Star Trek Continues, Great Free Shows

The original Star Trek series with Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. “Bones” McCoy and “Beam me up” Scotty was a five year mission cancelled after only three years, but you may not know that the original series was continued by fans who made the episodes the original series should have made. Once you get over … Continue reading

X-Files Return, Season 11 with 10 New Episodes

Coming up: New X-Files, 10 more episodes as Season 11 to be released 2017-18. Production starts this summer. The six reboot episodes of Season 10 were great and left us wanting more. Season 10 was a brief return of the series fourteen years after the ninth season ended in 2001-02. Season 11 will once again be executive-produced by creator Chris … Continue reading

Scientists create a fluid with negative mass

Today’s true strange news award goes to the creation of a fluid with negative mass.  Washington State University physicists have created a fluid with negative mass, which is exactly what it sounds like. Push it, and unlike every physical object in the world we know, it doesn’t accelerate in the direction it was pushed. It … Continue reading
