The Week in Geek: Oct. 26, 2012

by

Colleen is in the midst of wedding-ing, honeymooning, and moving, so she’ll be gone for awhile. Being the ever gracious editor-in-chief that I am, I’ve agreed to step up to the plate and attempt to bring all the geeky cool to you this week. Let’s set sail!

This has nothing to do with any of the links. It’s just awesome.

In the spirit of Halloween, Neatorama showed us some of the best geeky parent-and-child costumes. Axe Cop and Uni-baby complete the list for me.

The Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies will collide in about 4 billion years. Hopefully, the improbability drive will be finished by then.

Gamesradar theorized who several video game characters would support in the election. No word on if Samus Aran is a Ron Paul-bot.

The Smithsonian’s Blog talked about Sex in Space. I doubt they asked James Spader’s character from Supernova for clarification. That scene is gross.

Chris Lee and pals are building a full size Millennium Falcon. Did they have to discuss it with the committee?

The Ladies of Mischief are awesome. ‘Nuff said.

John discusses what it would take for the United Federation of Planets to exist. Hint: It probably wouldn’t work.

We now have a tractor beam. Thanks, science!

The iPad Mini was announced this week. Guess what? It’s not worth it. We miss Steve Jobs.

Iron Man 3‘s trailer is out! You can watch Tony Stark get beat around and be all snarky. Also, Guy Pearce and Bloodrayne‘s Ben Kingsley add class to the proceedings.

The BBC examines the psychology of Tetris. You now haveĀ  the theme song stuck in your head.

Colleen talked to the Ladies of Mischief and learned about their awesome new book, Needles and Artifice.

That’s all for this week! Got something geeky that we missed? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
