Ministry of Geeky Links (genghis)

Let’s face the facts: If you’re at home tonight reading this blog from your room in your parents’ basement, you’ll certainly be interested in these. And if it keeps you distracted from the inflatable sex doll you hide under the bed, then that’s all the better. I’m trying to help you people. (Also, I just want to remind you that you need to wash out the, uh…orifices... once in a while. Ooh…now I have a patent idea: inflatable sex doll douche. I wonder if I can swipe Irish Spring’s tagline : “Fresh and (whistle) clean as a whistle?” Probably not, so we’ll make it a contest. Whoever comes up with the best advert tagline or jingle gets 3 months free subscription to AoSHQ, an AoSHQ coffee mug and a rainbow. And a hearty man-hug from Dave.

1. First up is Concept Ships. This is your home-away-from-home if you want to see “An Online Animated Spaceship and Experimental Aircraft Art Magazine.” And you know you want to see them.

2. Next we have the official site for The Hobbit: The Movie. Make sure you visit the “photos” section of the site which has at least eleventy thousand pics of artwork that people have posted. People just like you who sit in their parents’ basement illustrating scenes from Middle Earth.

Twiki asks: beedeebeedeebeede If BSG can haz be remade, why can Buck Rogers haz not be remade? Do not like!

As of this day, I officially coin the term "LOLBots." It iz copyrited. Doz like.

UPDATE: Apparently, someone else has come up with the term "LOLBots," so I guess I can't coin the phrase. But it did pop into my head on its own, which makes me some sorta' freakin' genius. I guess the sex-doll "cleansing" system has probably been patented as well. Squirt bottle, I assume. I give up...no more new ideas for me.

Many more links and nekkid wymyn below the fold…

3. Then we have Cold Navy site. Here you can buy your own fleet of miniature plastic Battlestar variations along with all sorts of other tiny little ships. I think you can get a full squadron of Vipers (to scale!) for about $5.00. Who out there doesn’t want to stage epic space battles on their desktop? Keep in mind, it’s ok to vocalize the sounds of laser cannons and ships exploding. Just remember, no one in space can hear you scream. This alone should keep Gabe busy for months and not wearing us out with 10,000 word legal posts regarding maritime law.

4. BSG not your thang? You’re a Trekkie you say? Then try Ravenstar Studios for every conceivable variation on a UFP starship. I’m not sure if they have all of other species’ ships. But just pull out your Rubik’s Cube (you know you have one) and voila! A Borg cube to fight!

5. Concerning hobbits, once again: Don’t have a copy of The Silmarillion at work? Don't despair. Many illustrations there to ensure you don’t get a single thing done during the day, including bathing. Which you don’t do anyway.

6. Finally, a site rooted in reality, but it’ll still fuck with your mind is SkyscraperPage. Hit the “diagrams” or “cities” links at the top of the page to find out the most utterly freakish tall buildings that are under construction or are proposed. China has some wild ones, but the things going on in Dubai are straight out of science fiction. They’ve already got the tallest building in the world, at nearly 1/2 mile high or more (not quite twice the height of Sears Tower in Chicago, but pretty damn close.), but there’s a new one proposed that’s nearly 2/3 mile high. While you’re there, check out the “Dynamic Tower” which weighs in at a paltry 1200 feet or so (about the height of the Empire State Building.) The building constantly moves and twists about it’s central axis, like a snake. Click on the building diagrams and it brings up related links and articles.
