Comics About Your Nerdy Dating Life

(4 Comics That Perfectly Describe Life As A Pokemon Fan)

Dating can be extremely awkward for extroverts, and since most nerds are somewhat introverted people assume nerd dating will be doubly awkward.

But nerd dating can actually be quite magical, as two people passionate about geeky stuff discover they can share their pop culture passion with another person without feeling like a lame Psyduck.

(4 Comics That Perfectly Describe Life As A Pokemon Fan)

Of course, that same passion can lead to arguments, name calling and hurt feelings, as the nerdy couple becomes more comfortable with each other and stops holding back their passionate outbursts.

(Star-Crossed Gamers)

But if your nerdy dating experiences are anything like mine you'll soon find that special person you want to game with for a while and Netflix and chill with for always.

Some Of The Most WTF Moments In Batman Comics

Batman is a lot more than just a cape, a cowl and a scowl- he's a deep and interesting dude who is so multi-faceted his writers virtually never run out of new material.

But for every good story arc or issue there's another which completely misses the mark, making readers wonder “WTF?!”

Like the time Batman dyed his Batsuits different colors so goons wouldn't figure out Robin's secret identity, featuring Batman wearing a rainbow Batsuit while saying the line “they’ll find no gold at the end of this rainbow… only prison.”

And then there was the time Batman agreed to sing Christmas carols with officers from the Gotham PD- and no crimes were committed that night in Gotham, seemingly thanks to the songs sung by Batsy and the boys.

Think Batman singing is weird? Not as weird as the Caped Crusader laughing with the Joker, impregnating Batgirl or wetting himself during a mission.

10 of the Craziest Pokemon Go Stories

The Pokemon Go trend is finally starting to die down a little, so it's a perfect time to collect the strangest stories that have come out in the last few months. Here are some of the ten craziest stories we've come across.

1. Pokemon In the Real World?

Sure, Pokemon Go might be an augmented reality game, but that doesn't stop some people from believing the creatures really are hiding just out of view in the real world. In fact, many pet owners around the globe believe their pets can see the creatures and they've been posting photographic proof to sell their point.

As if that wasn't weird enough, one woman in Moscow claims she was sexually assaulted by a Pokemon. Her report doesn't specify which creature was involved in the assault, but it doesn't matter much since police told her to see a psychiatrist rather than putting an APB out for an augmented reality rapist.

2. Play At Your Own Risk

When you play Pokemon Go, you're warned to pay attention to your surroundings, but that wasn't enough to stop two players in San Diego to ignore trespassing signs and walk right off a cliff in search of Pokemon. While they both survived injuries, the two did make it out alive.

Of course, falling off a cliff is nothing compared to walking over a landmine -which is such a real concern in Bosnia that the government actually issued a warning for players to make sure they don't wander into any minefields, since most of these areas still contain live munitions.

3. The Guy Who Kept Playing Even After Being Stabbed

A guy playing Pokemon Go in Forest Grove, OR was stabbed by someone passing by, but he refused to let that stop him from catching more Pokemon. Instead, he kept playing, walked to a convenience store and bought chips and beer before seeking medical attention. When police arrived on the scene, he even refused treatment so he could keep playing. Eventually, he did go to a hospital, where he confessed, “It’s important to me. I’ve got to basically catch them all."

4. The Driver Who Crashed into a Cop Car While Playing

Average Rob Hangs Out With Celebrities So We Don't Have To

Aren't celebrities the worst? They seem all cool when they're in movies and TV shows and in concert and junk, but then you actually meet them and it's like eeeeewww! Gross!

You know who else thinks celebs are, like, the lamest people to be around?

AverageRob, now he knows what a drag it can be to hang with the rich and famous, especially when they're constantly makng messes he has to clean up!

AverageRob turns average photos of celebrities into AverageRobs, using the magic of Photoshop to insert himself into their staged definitely not staged snapshots.

And since celebrity photos can't be twice as fake the AverageRobs effect actually makes them twice as genuine and four times as real.

But don't do the math on that, math makes for sore brains.

Redditors Share Their Shower Thoughts About Batman

I wonder what Batman thinks about while he's taking a shower?

He probably runs through the minutes of his last mission, thinks about how much he hates clowns and keeps a fearful eye open in case a psycho man-bat tries to jump him in the shower.

We can only speculate about what runs through Bruce Wayne's bat-tastic mind while he bathes, but the rest of us tend to wonder about pretty normal Batman-related stuff while showering.

The Showerthoughts subreddit is home to many brilliant Batman related concepts, questions and criticisms, the kind which leap into our minds while we shampoo our heads which, if left unshared, could drive us mad.

Crude Animated Short Shows Why It Sucked To Be A Pirate

Pirates have been cleaned up and made to look like heroes, but in their day they were the scummiest, scurviest, meanest, greediest and most ruthless dogs sailing the seven seas.

Which is why it would have sucked to be a pirate- constantly sailing meant eating disgusting things like hard tack and leathery cured meats, overcrowding meant disease and urine a-plenty, and the combat was bloody and horrific.

(NSFW due to language)

(YouTube Link)

Sam O'Nella Academy has ruined another childhood fantasy for us all with this animated short, which is probably okay considering most pirates really were terrible role models.

Artist Draws Pokemon By Request Even Though He Knows Nothing About Them

Pokémoning is everywhere and infecting people from all walks of life with the pokévirus code name GO, but even with all the hype and press many people don't know a thing about Pokémon.

And that's actually quite refreshing, especially when the person who knows nothing about Pokémon is an artist and Redditor who offers to draw pictures of Pokémon by request based on name alone.

Redditor netwoodle put the word out on r/ICanDrawThat by stating "I know next to nothing about Pokémon, but that won't stop me from doodling one for you." and naturally his fellow Redditors wanted to catch 'em all.

It's nice to see such fresh and unique Pokémon reimaginings after seeing the original character designs for so many years, and netwoodle's doodles definitely don't lack in the personality department.

Tom Wilson Is Biff Tannen, Biff Tannen Is Pop Art

(Image Link)

Tom Wilson has appeared in many movies and TV shows, but his mug is still most recognizable as Biff (and Griff and Buford) Tannen from the Back To The Future film franchise.

After the release of the beloved BTTF trilogy Tom couldn't escape the ghost of Biff, but rather than trying to separate himself from his Biffiness Tom embraced his status and accepted that he has "become pop art."

(YouTube Link)

Tom's outlook on fame is refreshing, his passion for Pop Art is infectious, and it appears he has exorcised the ghosts of the Tannen clan with brush strokes and marvelous perspective.

Crafty Pokefan Hides Crochet Pokemon Plushies For Her Fellow Trainers To Find

Hid this guy at the park today hehe

A photo posted by Nichole (@knottynichole) on Aug 9, 2016 at 6:17pm PDT

Pokémon GO has brought people together like no multiplayer ever could, and even people who know nothing about gaming or Pokémon have a ball playing GO.

There have been a few bad GO related incidents, of course, but the GO community as a whole is dedicated to keeping things lighthearted and fun for their fellow gamers.

Going to hide these at pokestops today. #crochetgo

A photo posted by Nichole (@knottynichole) on Aug 10, 2016 at 12:50pm PDT

One dedicated player named @knottynichole has begun crocheting Pokémon plushies and leaving them at pokestops for her fellow trainers to find, adding a sense of wonder to the game.

Happy hunting! #crochetgo

A photo posted by Nichole (@knottynichole) on Aug 10, 2016 at 3:21pm PDT

Given how time consuming it is to crochet each plushie this fun urban art drop project probably won't last long, so anybody who catches one of Nichole's pokeplush should count themselves very lucky!

Sonic the Hedgedog Makes Up for Slow Speed With Total Cuteness

(Video Link)

Sonice the Hedgehog is an animal hero, saving poor bunnies and birdies from being turned into evil robotic creatures by the terrible Dr. Robotnik.

(Video Link)

He's such a hero to animals that he even has his own puppy sidekick, Sonic the Hedgedog. Unfortunately, this bulldog isn't quite as fast as his hedgehog friend, so sometimes he falls prey to Robotnik's evil tricks.

(Video Link)

Sometimes some of Sonic's friend's show up to help him fight too.

(Video Link)

In the end though, Sonic the Hedgedog is actually just a strange mutation of the original Sonic the Hedgehog. Who would have seen that one coming?

Hilarious Photo Fails Taken At Disney Parks

(Image Link)

Visitors are understandably disappointed when they make the trip to the Magic Kingdom in Anaheim or Orlando and end up having a crappy day, but a theme park trip shouldn't be ruined by a bad photo alone.

(Image Link)

In fact, most “bad” theme park photos make better memories down the line, and even if you can't appreciate the humor of the situation at the time you'll definitely laugh about it when you look back on that day.

People really need to think before buying a sweatshirt!!! #disneylandfail @futuremrslum saw this and thought of you!!!

A photo posted by Jeanine Militello (@jeaninemilitello) on May 26, 2014 at 8:05pm PDT

And once you're able to map out your laughing place and smile about all the things that go right and wrong during your Disney Parks outing you'll look forward to your next trip.

I said look FORWARD, you perverted little chipmunks!

Seven Of The Crappiest Monsters In Horror Movie History

A great movie monster will quickly become a favorite among horror movie fans, but a cheesy, low budget wreck of a monster will become a legend, for entirely diffent reasons, of course.

Jason embodies the spirit of a serial killer, Freddy Krueger creatively kills people in their dreams, and Leatherface wears a skin mask, wields a chainsaw and comes from a crazy cannibal family.

It's easy to see their appeal as movie monsters, but how the hell is a haunted spa or demonic refrigerator going to track their victims down, much less terrify an audience?

Stray cats are only scary to the young and the elderly, a disembodied hand is only scary if you can't find a bag to toss it in, and flesh eating slugs are only scary if you don't have any salt in your house.

But I will admit there's one entry on Cracked's The 7 Most Half-Assed Monsters In Movie History that sent chills down my spine- the Wereturkey in Blood Freak.

Now that beaky bastard will haunt your dreams, especially around Thanksgiving...

Ten Of The Weirdest Bands Ever

Ever since Scooby Doo introduced me to KISS I've had a soft spot for strange bands who play bizarre music and put on wicked weird stage shows.

Then The Muppet Show introduced me to Alice Cooper and I was hopelessly hooked, and ever since then bands with freaky sounds and/or costumed stage shows just make me happy.

WatchMojo.com put together a perfectly succinct list of the Top 10 Weirdest Bands, including the adorably dark Babymetal, the colorfully apocalyptic sounds of Die Antwoord and the over-the-top awesomeness of Gwar. (Contains NSFW material)

A Huge Collection Of Clever Movie Easter Eggs

Movie easter eggs are fun to hunt with your eyeballs and often so deliciously geeky that you want to share them with friends.

Which is why sites keep posting articles revealing the locations of movie secrets and we keep eating it all up!

In this collection of 30 Clever Easter Eggs put together by gamesradar we learn the morse code message received in Peter Jackson's 2005 version of King Kong was not an arrest warrant for Carl Denham- it actually said “show me the monkey!”.

The list also shows us little details we may have missed, like the painting of Roland the Gunslinger Thomas Jane's character is painting in The Mist, or the fact that Freddy's glove is hanging in the tool shed in Evil Dead 2.

And lastly, did you think the name of the Mexican restaurant in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy seemed a bit long?

That's because it was a big joke- Escupimos en su Alimento means "we spit in your food".

Fan Hilariously Nitpicks Everything Wrong With Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad has been out for a few weeks now, so chances are fans who wanted to see it on the big screen already have while the rest of us who are waiting for the DVD no longer care about the hype.

Despite the critical reviews and haters the film managed to make some money at the box office, but after seeing the movie twice Jenny Nicholson was left with a hollow feeling and some nagging questions. (Video is full of Suicide Squad spoilers)

(YouTube Link)

Jenny's first mistake was feeding that monster watching the film twice, her second mistake- taking her logical mind with her to see the movie!

Responsibilities

We all have to deal with our responsibilities on a daily basis, and even people who consider themselves irresponsible have a personal responsibility to maintain that irresponsibility.

Most of us work because we have mouths to feed, but as this comic from Oppressive Silence shows that idiom means drastically different things to different people...

Supervillain Origins: The Blob

(Image Link)

The Blob is one of the most bizarre supervillains in the Marvel Universe, because many of his mutant abilities are seemingly derived from his super-powered fat.

But the Blob is more than just a big bully with his own mono-directional gravity field- he's a complex character with an interesting origin story.

(YouTube Link)

This video by WatchMojo.com walks you through the Blob's origin story found in X-Men #3 and the updates from X-Force #52, but that's just the beginning of the Blob's story- read all about him here

Bowser Calls Ganondorf For Advice On Dating Princess Peach

Bowser looks and talks like a big badass, and acts like he has a chip on his shoulder towards moustachioed plumbers, but the truth is he's just extremely lonely, jealous and desperate for a girlfriend.

So comic artist FigmentForm naturally figured Ganondorf could show Bowser the way to Princess Peach's heart when she created this guest piece for Manly Guys Doing Manly Things, and boy was she right!

This Dungeons & Dragons Tabletop Diorama Is A Gamer's Dream Come True

Some people don't really want or need anything on the hex mat when they're playing a tabletop roleplaying game, preferring to play solely using the power of imagination.

For the rest of us it's nice to have some visual elements to enhance our experience, including miniatures that actually fit our characters and some terrain pieces.

But miniatures master crafter Ryan Devoto wasn't content with using but a few measley scenic pieces for his Dungeons & Dragons campaign- he wanted a setting his miniatures could truly call home.

So Ryan, along with Michael Tiskus of Terranscapes, built an epic scale D&D diorama complete with a port full of ships, a village, a massive castle with full interior and more.

With a diorama so detailed and varied in terms of environment types the campaign practically writes itself!

See more detail shots from Ryan's amazing D&D diorama here

Don't Believe What You Hear on Those Celebrity House Tours in LA

Even if you've never been to Hollywood, you know that one of the big draws in the city are those celebrity home tours that show you the multi-million-dollar mansions of the rich and famous. Unfortunately for the people paying to go on those tours though, a recent investigation discovered that most of the homes on the tours actually belong to every day non-famous people. 

Naturally, some of the tours were more honest than others, with the worst of the bunch completely making up facts -claiming, for example, that Justin Bieber was actually banned from the US. The report did mention that Starline Tours were the best of the tours out there and while they still might tell a few white lies, most of the homes on their tours actually belonged to the celebrities in question.

The Worst Behind-The-Scenes Movie Disasters Ever

Remember that great scene in Titanic where all the extras were running around while high on PCP-spiked clam chowder? No, oh, that's because it happened behind the scenes of the film, but even so, it's still an incredible story that you might never know about just watching the film.

This great All That Is Interesting slideshow (I know, you have to flip through all of the slides -it's not my choice but the information is entertaining) has all kinds of similar, horrible stories from behind the scenes of huge Hollywood films.

Cinderella In Emojis

(Video Link)

Disney's Cinderella is a magical classic reminding us what we love about the fairy tale princess story. But if you don't have time to watch it, this adorable version told in emojis does a pretty good job of sumarazing the tale. Of course, that's hardly surprising given that it's made by amazing artists employed by Disney. Now if only I could use my Amazon app to order my own fairy godmother.

Marvel Comic Covers to Promote STEM Careers

A series of Marvel Comics coming in November will feature covers that highlight superheroes engaged in STEM activities… except that, being comic book artists,* they added Art to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. That makes it STEAM.

Marvel heroes are no strangers to science. Characters like Bruce Banner, Peter Parker, Reed Richards and many more all have ties in science as either part-time, or full-time, scientists. Keeping with their science-based roots, Marvel's latest crop of characters are engaging in the science fun as well.

In an attempt to spark interest in math and the sciences amongst readers, Marvel will introduce STEAM variant covers. Each cover will represent one of the themes relating to science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. The education-themed Marvel covers will hit stands November 2016.

All but the Engineering cover (featuring Iron Man) can be seen at Popular Science. -via Gamma Squad

Kenobi: A Star Wars Story Teaser

Before you get your hopes up, no, this is not a Disney movie! Disney is planning a series of stand-alone movies that focus on different characters in their A Star Wars Story series that will slot films between the new episodes of the main saga, but this is a fan-made teaser trailer by Rich Williamson. It does look like a movie I’d want to see. The years between Episode III and Episode IV had to have Ben Kenobi, that crazy old hermit, going through some changes. Disney should take that ball and run with it.

A lot of the footage is from the 2015 movie Last Days in the Desert, in which Ewan McGregor played Jesus during his forty days of fasting. He played the devil, too. -via Digg

David Lee Roth's No Holds Bar-B-Que

(Image Link)

David Lee Roth was one of the biggest names in the rock world in the 80s and 90s, and he definitely played a major role in Van Halen's success as a band.

But the split was hard for Dave, and his style, act and attitude didn't age well, so by the 2000s he was struggling to stay relevant, much less famous.

Which must be why he decided to pay over half a million dollars in 2002 to make an off-the-wall feature length music video called David Lee Roth's "No Holds Bar-B-Que".

The feature length music video didn't revitalize Roth's career, but it gave his hardcore fans what they wanted- hot women wearing revealing clothing, raw Rock 'n' Roll, and Dave jumping around like a madman.

Oh, and I forgot to mention the kung-fu intro, who knew Dave had hand-to-hand combat skills? (Video is obviously NSFW)

(YouTube Link)

Apparently the video was never released to the public, and only recently resurfaced because Dave added it to his personal YouTube channel, so sorry the vid didn't get you gigs, Dave, but thanks for sharing this crazy gem with us all!

This Impressive Supercut Shows Why Props Matter

Hollywood is currently experiencing a philosophical split between those who believe in the power of practical fx and those who don't see the problem with going full digital.

Many of the full digital filmmakers don't think it's worth the time and effort to create costumes, makeup effects and props when they can just hire digital artists to fake it all.

But, as everyone who saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine knows, real props can mean the difference between a believable effect and a glaringly obvious fake.

Why Props Matter from Rishi Kaneria on Vimeo.

Filmmaker Rishi Kane put this impressive supercut together to demonstrate the power of the humble prop, which should be required viewing for filmmakers who think digital props will ever replace the real deal.

A Heavy Metal Version Of The Jigglypuff Song

Jigglypuff is one of the cutest and cuddliest looking Pokémon, which makes him the most commonly underestimated Pokémon as well.

Because his hypnotic singing ability is extremely hard to resist, and even the toughest characters fall victim to his charm ability and fall fast asleep when he starts singing his Jigglypuff Song.

But metalhead THEoneNILS thought Jigglypuff's cute little song needed a heavy metal makeover, so listeners will start banging their heads instead of nodding off.

(YouTube Link)

THEoneNILS wasn't the first person to think heavy metal when they saw Jigglypuff perform, and this video still wins the award for most ridiculous Pokémon themed mashup of all time.

SpongeBob Moments Hilariously Captioned With Historical Context

Never let the haters in the world tell you SpongeBob SquarePants is not of historical importance, because those anti-Spongeicans are just jealous of SpongeBob's contributions to the world.

(Image Link)

Bikini Bottom seems to have a lot in common with the Bermuda Triangle, since both oceanic locations are full of strange occurrences and random encounters.

But the trials and tribulations encountered by SpongeBob and his buddies are like perfect parallels of the historical events we humans encountered on the surface.

(Image Link)

These parallel events must be why the memes shared on r/BikiniBottomTwitter are so spot on, revealing all the ways we've been underestimating SpongeBob and Patrick since the 90s.
