Awesome nerdiness from around the net

Well there have been some really cool things on the internet lately.  I have to say that for me the ones that have really stuck as of late have been Doctor Who themed.  But there is just so much cool stuff going on and now that  we are in the early days of convention season there should be even more coming soon.

Star Trek “Controversy”

In the new Star Trek movie there’s a scene where Carol Marcus is changing and Kirk takes a peak.  When I saw it, the scene reminded me of the time on The Big Bang Theory where Penny slipped and fell.  She was naked in the bathtub and needed Sheldon to help her.  Penny tells Sheldon not to look but he peaks.  As he says later, “The hero always peaks.”  And Penny was completely naked.  Carol was in her underwear, and it covered a lot too.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Iron Man 3 is burning and shockingly her shirt is going.  However her bra remains completely unharmed.  In The Avengers she is walking around in super short shorts, and she totally has the legs to pull that off.

There is nothing wrong with that but for two movies with almost completely overlapping audiences I feel like you know what you’re getting into.  The target audience is male.  in general, men enjoy seeing women scantily clad.  And both of these women looked gorgeous.  So, if they are ok with stripping down to their underwear for the movie, who cares.

Armor

Armor is so cool. The way it shines in the light and protects from swords and arrows. Chain mail disperses the blow, and is movable. We obviously don’t use them any more in battle in the literal sense. We use tanks and drones. But that doesn’t make middle ages fashion any less cool.

Above is a more literal interpretation.  Below is a more modern every day wear version of armor.

Then of course there are all of the superheroes that have armor, Iron Man, Thor, Death Stroke, Captain America, Batman, Aquaman.  The list goes on and on.   Armor is cool and definately super nerdy  in the best way.
