It's good to have a partner in life who will help you soar to new heights instead of weighing you down with their negativity, but sometimes you've gotta swap out the one you're with to find the right fit.
And according to this comic from Zen Pencils you'll know the Can-Do guy or girl of your dreams the minute you meet them- they'll be the one offering to help you(r heart) soar to the stars!

You know what every single photo taken of a celebrity is missing?
A dude wearing a dinosaur onesie while hanging out with said celeb, that's what, and since Lorenz Valentino owned a onesie and had the Photoshop skills he went to work editing himself into their photos.
Thanks to his skills, and his sweet onesie, Lorenz now hangs out with Macklemore, dates his dream Kardashian, err, Jenner, and poses like a sexy python ready to strike with his "longtime friend" Jennifer Lawrence.
Office dress codes are a real drag, even with Casual Fridays, but employees who want to keep their jobs are forced to dress accordingly...or are they?
If you go by the experiences of June J Rivas then dress codes don't mean a thing, because when her boss instituted a severe and illegal dress code she replied by cosplaying to work.
June feels the new dress code is aimed directly at her and has filed complaints, but in the meantime she's having fun putting “work cosplay” outfits together which technically conform to the new dress code.
Cosplayers tend to be a mighty creative bunch, so if this dress code battle grinds on for a while June is going to make her boss wish she'd never had a problem with the way June used to dress!
And as you know the NeatoShop has thousands of incredibly cool t-shirts in stock, including many slogan tees from your favorite movies, so check out the NeatoShop for tees that'll make you look like a million bucks!
GIFs are a visual gift to the Users of the Internet, a mini cinematic present for our eyeballs to unwrap in a few seconds flat, but I can't decide if the GIFs created by Sam Cannon are given out of joy or spite.
Sam's mesmerizing and disturbing GIFs can be subtly creepy, extremely whimsical or both, and viewers may find it hard to tear their eyes away from these GIFs even when the subject keeps sending chills down their spine with a stare.
All skits on the convention floor were set up with the other cosplayers, and there was no contact without consent. However, just like the Deadpool movie, some scenes are not for children. -via Tastefully Offensive
Who knew? The first person to wear a costume to a science fiction convention dates back to the very first science fiction convention in 1939. The idea grew from there when people realized that it was fun, frivolous, and the better the costume, the more the fun. You got attention, made friends, and spread the news that fictional world fandom can bring the real world together.
While I have an extensive history in costumes, I only attended a science fiction convention in costume once. Conventions are a major hassle when you live in the middle of nowhere, while there are many opportunities to use a costume of one sort or another, at various jobs, parties, and when you have children. This video is from Timeline. -via Digg
The trailer for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie debuted at San Diego Comic Con. We first saw Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now it’s time for her to kick ass and take names in her own film.
When you are deeply involved in video games, and then Pokémon GO comes along, you gotta go out and catch ‘em all! But maybe you aren’t as familiar with the “real world” as you should be. Try to remember that there aren’t charging stations everywhere in the real world wilderness. This is the latest comic from Kevin Erdmann at The Meerkat Guy. -via Geeks Are Sexy
Watching musician Andy McKee play is a delight for both eyes and ears, since his harp guitar sounds as wonderful as it looks, as you can see/hear when he plays Jeremy Soule's “Streets Of Whiterun” from the Skyrim soundtrack.
My harp guitar has its own, proprietary body shape and many unique features. While inspired by the early 20th century harp guitars, this is truly a contemporary instrument incorporating all of the modern physics and design features found on all of my guitars. …My harp guitar is made of a laminated rim set, with laminated linings and a system of aerospace composite carbon fibre trusses and buttresses. This makes for an extremely rigid and stable skeletal structure. The soundboard is lattice braced. The Laskin style extended arm rest is included, as is a mini-rib rest on the rear of the pointed section of the upper bout.
For the San Diego Comic Con, the famous cosplayer Leeanne Vamp dressed as Dark Helmet, the Darth Vader analog from the Mel Brooks parody film Spaceballs. I doubt she'll find the suit as suffocating as Rick Moranis did.
In the Star Trek universe, the Prime Directive prohibits Starfleet personnel from interfering with the internal development of alien civilizations. They violate the directive over and over, but even worse, they interfere constantly with the space-time continuum. You can’t really blame the Enterprise crew, or even the writers, because time travel makes for wonderful stories. But it does mess up the continuity of several TV series and a dozen feature films. The Deep Space Nine episode “Trials And Tribble-Ations” even had the DS9 crew interacting with the characters in the 1960s series!
Plenty of Trek episodes dealt with time travel before DS9, but “Trials And Tribble-Ations” is the first to show characters traveling back to the events of a previous series; in a way, it serves as a prototype for the direction the new movie franchise would take, dipping in to the nostalgia of the original series while still maintaining its own voice. The plot here is largely an excuse to let the crew of DS9 interact with some of their “heroes,” as the episode uses footage from the classic original-series entry “The Trouble With Tribbles” intermixed with matching footage from the present. The effect is hugely entertaining, allowing the show to both mock and pay homage to the flaws and wonders of its predecessor. As a bonus, “Trials” also introduces the Department Of Temporal Investigations, a group dedicated to maintaining the internal logic of history. They mostly serve as a framing story, but the existence of the department is a helpful reminder that time travel and the shenanigans that result from it are an integral part of the franchise.
Dorkly did an amazing job of making gamers wonder- which other video game "heros" have we been wrong to believe in all these years? Personally, I've always thought there was something not quite right about that Paperboy...
Spirited Away is Japan's highest grossing film of all time, and even though the Japanese mythology themes aren't fully understood by most non-Japanese viewers the film is still a delight to watch.
But there's one scene even Japanese audiences wondered about- the scene where Chihiro's parents suddenly become pigs.
It was fairly easy to tell the scene was commenting on gluttony and/or greed, but Twitter user @0910noncha wanted to know for sure so she messaged Studio Ghibli- and they answered.
The studio sent her a two-page long reply, explaining that the pig scene is meant to represent “the greed that took place during the Japanese recession of the 80s”:
The letter also explained that the transformation was irreversible in order to reflect the nature of greed in the real world. The letter continued by saying that Chihiro knew that none of the pigs in the pen were her parents because her mindset had changed following her experiences in the underworld.
It has become abundantly clear the Chinese are obsessed with Iron Man, and not just because his armor is red and gold in color just like their flag.
They're also obsessed with panda bears, which they thankfully began to cherish and protect before they went extinct, and now they've brought both obsessions together in one amazing statue.
This giant Iron Panda statue was created by Chinese artist Bi Heng, measures nearly thirty feet tall and must weigh a ton considering normal sized pandas definitely aren't lightweights.
The statue hangs around Shenyang, where people cherish this massive testament to mammalian ingenuity, and if the world is ever in trouble Iron Panda will be there to preserve balance with a blast of his Yin-Yang palm laser.
The Hulk is one of the most predictable characters in the Marvel Universe, because his battles almost always involve smashing or sheer resilience, but he's also a bit of a head case too.
And whether he's locked in a fit of rage, struggling with his identity crisis or trying to figure out why his friends are fighting with him The Hulk definitely isn't all there mentally.
Over the years the Jade Giant has made some downright bizarre decisions, such as hooking up with his first cousin She-Hulk, playing baseball while wearing blackface, and beating up Santa Claus in front of a bunch of kids.
Beatin' on Thor is one thing, but you'd better leave Santa Claus alone you big green/gray brute!
Michael Miller got his flugelhorn and Bryce Hayashi got his trumpet and they journeyed to the home of John Williams, the composer of the music of Star Wars. Standing outside his home, they played the title theme for the franchise.
It was a risky move. Williams could have taken offense at having his private life invaded by fans. But he was instead delighted at their performance. He came out of his house to greet them.
Female body armor seems to be made with sex appeal in mind rather than protection, at least according to many pop culture franchises, and up until the recent assimilation of geek culture that was fine.
But now people are declaring this sexy armor scandalous and demanding an explanation, so DeviantARTist Nebezial took a stab at explaining how it works with this strip. Seems legit to me!
Of all the new series I've tried this season, the most striking is Orange, a romance with a tragic ambiance. Naho, a high school student, recieves a mysterious letter. It contains instructions from herself, written 10 years into the future. A crisis is coming--one that will impact herself and her friends forever. She can change the future.
Or can she? It seems simple enough, but Naho finds that altering the present isn't easy. She has less control over the wellbeing of her friends than she thinks.
In Planetarian, it has been 30 years since the collapse of civilization in some mysterious apocalyptic event. Kuzuya, a scavenger, explores the remains of an abandoned shopping mall. He's looking for food and other essential supplies. But what he finds instead is Yumeni, an android girl who works at the planetarium.
She doesn't understand why no one comes to her facility anymore or that the projector doesn't work. But her naive and carefree manner charms Kuzuya, who decides to repair the projector so that they can again see the stars circling over a ravaged Earth.
When Star Trek Beyond comes out on Friday, watch carefully and you'll see Jeff Bezos in the background. The founder of Amazon.com introduced us to the future of retail and is now participating in the future in a small role in the latest Star Trek movie. The Associated Press quotes director Justin Lin about the experience:
"He was awesome," said Lin. "It was like a president was visiting, you know? He had a big entourage! But it didn't matter because he was so into it. He had to wait around all day because it was one day we were shooting, like, three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because ... he just nailed it every time."
Bezos has spoken in interviews of his passion for Star Trek and said his childhood dreams of space led him to found his private space travel company, named Blue Origin.
IMDb already lists Bezos in the film as a "Starfleet Official."
Disney is heavily promoting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, because it drops this year. But fans are looking past that, to the next episode of the Skywalker family saga in 2017. Alex Luthor put together a trailer for that movie, using footage from The Forces Awakens plus scenes from other fan films.
Some fans take their celebrity worship too far when they find themselves face-to-face with the object of their affection, and this creates awkwardness between fan and idol.
But the awkward feeling isn't always the fan's fault, because some celebs hate dealing with fans so much they turn an already tense moment into sheer social torture.
Even worse- the celebs who use social media to ridicule their fans, talking trash about the people who help pay for their decadent lifestyles and acting like they're "over it" when it comes to having a fanbase.
Screen Rant presents a list of 10 Famous Actors Who Are Terrible To Their Fans, including some stuff about Christian Bale (angry) and Shia LaBeouf (batty), and the time Jesse Eisenberg hated the fans at Comic-Con so much he compared it to a genocide.
The Garthim were huge, tentacled, black-carapaced flea-like creatures, armed with powerful claws and moved with a loud ticking sound. When not in battle, they stood like sentries in the corridors and pits of The Castle of the Crystal, standing immobile until given a command.
The picture is awesome, but watch how it looks when he moves!
To drum up excitement for the new movie Star Wars: Rogue One, Disney has released a video of some behind-the-scenes footage and quips from the cast and crew. This was first shown at Star Wars Celebration in London.
It’s not enough to let is know what’s happening, but enough to let us know that it looks awesome. It does focus on violence a lot, which is not indicative of the finished movie, but works for previews. The beach scene was filmed in the Maldives. -via The A.V. Club
It's hard to do a great photo shoot with a baby becacuse they will inevitably start crying or have an accident. That's why this Harry Potter photo shoot is so brilliant -its actually better if the baby cries. After all, have you ever seen a smiling mandrake? Of course, it doesn't hurt if the baby's big brother is there to look annoyed at having to wear ear muffs just to transplant a bothersome screaming plant.
