Sketches of Ice and Fire by Little Digits

The above image is by Little Digits as is the one below. I like the whimsical style of her art, but as with many things that are posted to Tumblr the original source was hard to find, even though they are signed. Little Digits is actually quite prolific and it’s worth looking through her Tumblr blog.

DC Comic/Neil Degrasse Tyson Pin the Location of Krypton

If you want full details head over to Bad Astronomy but apparently this weeks issue of Action Comics Superman #14 pins Krypton as Orbiting LHS 2520 a Red Dwarf star that is 27 light years away from us.

They apparently asked Neil Degrasse Tyson to suggest a star that would fit the location of Krypton and he chose that one.

Also I’ve not read Superman in quite some time but what the hell is going on with his costume in that image?

Here is an image of the star that Krypton orbits:

The Avengers Has Turned the Internet Shawarma Crazy

Image: Shawarma near damascus from gomideast.com

Words cannot describe my love for shawarma, if you aren’t familiar with shawarma it’s chicken or lamb or more recently beef cooked on a huge rotating skewer rolled up in flat bread with some vegetables sauce (Garlic sauce or tahina depending on the meat) and occasionally french fries (Although I think the french fries are not part of the traditional recipe) and it is what I grew up eating. It’s a staple food in the middle east, it costs about 50p (I reackon 75 cents?) and it absolutely delicious.

I’ve had shawarma in London, Glasgow and even Tokyo I think if you told me I could only eat one food for the rest of my life I’d pick shawarma. But enough about that. I’ve noticed the internet has picked up on shawarma because of a passing reference to it in the Avengers.

This can only be a good thing as it will hopefully lead to shawarma being more mainstream, which means that I will have access to it wherever I go!

Tetris Behind the Scenes

Let the Game Continue (04.10)

This image by Eduardo San Gil explains what is happening behind the scenes when you play a game of Tetris to generate the seemingly random stream of blocks. It was designed for a Threadless T-Shirt which I can’t seem to find anymore. But I did see that someone (Profound Whatever to be specific) had made a simulacrum of the image in Lego:

Abdul Is Not A Name!

f0rbseh:

Cap’s being all gentlemanly and then Hawkeye appears leaping through the eye with a wisecrack.Oh Hawkeye, never stop being awesome! 
[Taken from The Ultimates 02 #12]

See, not an asshole. Ok Clint is being a bit ridiculous here but his family are dead and he has been tortured by this point.
Cap is just being a gent’.

Disregard the content of this, yeah sure the idea is that Captain America is trying to be a nice guy to the terrorist super hero or something (I don’t read the Ultimates so I don’t know what is going on).

The guys name Abdul Al-Rahman that’s not a real name!!!! Abdul means servant of, it’s actually “Abd” the “Ul” part is actually a prefix for the next word and just means “The”, Abdulrahman is a name it means the servant of  “Al-Rahman” or The “Rahman”; Al-Rahman being one of the 99 names of God meaning the merciful. The name Abdulrahman means servant of God, Abdul Al-Rahman means The The servant of god.

WHICH MAKES NO SENSE!

Sometimes Abdul is used as a a short form of Abdullah, literally Abd-Allah servant of Allah, servant of God. But not many people would use it like that, and they wouldn’t use a shortened version of their first name if  they were then going to say their family name.

Just because it sounds Arabic doesn’t make it okay! It irks anyone who speaks the language and enrages them, especially since you aren’t strictly supposed to use Abdul as a prefix for anything other than one of the names of God. Some people name their children Abdul-Rasool, servant of the prophet, but that is frowned upon and considered blasphemy in most circles…
