NECA wisely chose to emulate the characters’ NES incarnations, including their pixelated camo pants that I honestly never noticed until today.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Funko Pop! Vinyl Action Figures Smell of Elderberries
Of all the ’80s comedy movies that I watched growing up, Monty Python and the Holy Grail was my favorite. I watched that flick every night for about a month one summer and spent lots of time running around the house speaking in a British accent threatening to fart in people’s general direction.

Joby S2 Concept: A Personal VTOL Aircraft

Joby S2 Concept: A Personal VTOL Aircraft

Neil deGrasse Tyson Picks Enterprise or Millennium Falcon

Neil deGrasse Tyson Picks Enterprise or Millennium Falcon
I like Neil deGrasse Tyson. If nothing else, this great scientific mind has given us some very solid memes over the years. A new video of Tyson talking about fictional spaceships is making the rounds, and if it doesn’t spawn a couple new memes I’ll be very disappointed with the internet.
