humans getting a reputation amongst the galaxy for doing totally absurd and reckless things, like making absolutely ridiculous flight paths through asteroid belts, or hitting warp speed for a five mile trip, or devoting 90% of the power of a ship’s onboard computer to their personal laptop so they can torrent abba’s discography, or mixing rocket fuel with mentos to see what happens

and at first other species are like….. okay we’d better not have humans on the crew if they’re this dangerous….. but then when they notice the humans are actually getting a lot more done and advancing super fast because they take such absurd risks “just to see if it works” it becomes commonplace to have a group of at least four humans on every ship in the fleet

no other species previously had a word in their language that equated to “fuck it” but within a century “fuck it” is regarded as an immensely wise proverb

Scenario One

“Now we must be careful as there is still the question of how territorial the wildlife in this area is-“ The jalaxian fleet commander says, standing in front of their crew, ready to lead a slow and calculated expedition through an unexplored forest on an uncharted world.

“SPACE PUPPIES!” The human medic exclaims, barging past, picking up a small tentacled beast. It appears to be friendly, welcoming the contact.

“… Well, I suppose that answers that.”

Scenario Two

Zampushian: “Captain! The space pirates are hot on our tail and with their firepower we could never hope to outrun them! I can send a beacon to the fleet-”

Human: “Nah. It’s cool. Just put all the power to the shields.”

Zampushian: “But Captain-”

Human: “Trust me, dude!”

[The Zampushian transfers all available power to the shield modules. The ship, unable to move now, slows to a halt. The space pirate ship barrels forwards and crashes into the ship, exploding on impact, with no damage to the fleet ship.]

Human: “See? Everything’s chill. Do we have any chips left?”

Scenario Three

An Ungrampish crew member working aboard a multi-species fleet ship goes into the ship’s cargo bay to move some equipment. Tye (that’s the pronoun they use on Ungramp) is greeted by the sight of a human eating an entire Ungrampish chilli pepper, the hottest in the known universe, just to see what happens.

I remember two other posts closely related to this…one was about Star Trek, and another said that the human superpower is “Fuck it, hold my beer, I got this”

All three are excellent posts.

Marvel and espnW Teamed Up to Turn Women in Sports Into Superheroes

by Stubby the Rocket

espnW and Marvel, IMPACT25, Serena Williams

Last year, espnW did something special for their second annual IMPACT25 list–a group of 25 female athletes and influencers that broke boundaries and inspired–they combined forces with Marvel Comics and had the entire group drawn up like the superheroes they are. The results are every bit as stunning as you would expect them to be, starting with the unmatchable Serena Williams as a hero named Super Galactic Slam by Elizabeth Torque.

More of these gorgeous covers below!

Many of these protraits are even more exciting in the wake of the 2016 Olympics, such as Kevin Wada’s rendering of Simone Biles:

The people making these memes obviously have never seen some of the weird ass shit in old-timey photos. A quick Google and:

Humans are basically a giant jumble of weirdos that try to belittle other weirdos…

That’s the most accurate and poignant description of human nature I’ve ever read

Underneath it, a quoted tweet: “Perils of Google Translate no 44a. People seeking greater warning of volcanic eruptions want sirens, not mermaids.”

US Army committed $6.5 trillion in accounting fraud in one year

by Cory Doctorow

12340397434_ecb323c52f_b

In June, the Defense Department’s Inspector General released a report on the US Army's accounting, revealing that the Army had invented $6.5 trillion in "improper adjustments" ($2.8T in one quarter!) to make its books appear balanced though it could not account for where the funds had gone. (more…)
