Rejected Command and Conquer 3 Novel

Tycho Brahe’s completed a Command & Conquer 3 novel which was then rejected. Electronic Arts loss of revenue is irrefutable by denying the ground breaking magnum opus by the eldritch author who among other works includes Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One. Holy fruit fucker! What a loss!

Penny Arcade - Dynamism - Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars™ Novel

Then the harvester returned to base with some tiberium. It deposited its load before returning to the tiberium field to get more. After harvesting some tiberium, it retuned back toward the base…eventually they run out of tiberium!

Riveting.

Tiberium Wars™ - Soylent Green

Here’s my version. The tiberium actually turns out to be Soylent Green!

Yummy.

Brainmail: You Don’t Need New Laws — You Need New Fucking Jobs

Warren Ellis speaks clever:

Bar staff support banning smoking in pubs/bars, complaining that passive smoking poses a health risk to them.

So your job is to cajole people to buy tasty poison, break up fights, get bottled, mop up spew, breathe in old men’s aspirated diseases as they bellow for more beer over the counter, deal with a dozen different kinds of physical assault — and it’s passive smoking that’s a threat to your health? You don’t need new laws — you need new fucking jobs.

Now give me some whisky and light my fucking cigarette for me.

Hubble Hits 17th Anniversary

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope: 50-light-year-wide view of the central region of the Carina Nebula.

In celebration of the 17th anniversary of the launch and deployment of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, this, one of the largest panoramic images ever taken with Hubble’s cameras, is being released. It is a 50-light-year-wide view of the central region of the Carina Nebula where a maelstrom of star birth – and death – is taking place.
