Tumblr Explores Human Nature with "Knife Roomba"

One of Tumblr's favorite things to do is expound on human nature in discussions, essays and threads about the role human beings as team "hold my beer" in the universe. It's generally regarded, out of self interest and flattery that we're basically badass space orcs. These kinds of discussions go on to describe Earth as the type of planet whose wildlife could fight off an alien invasion. So in this context, the idea that a human ship would have a knife Roomba affectionately referred to as "Stabby" not only makes perfect sense, but sort of makes us want to get one right now.

Tumblr Thread: The Bizarre Nature Of Sci-Fi Translation

This fun Tumblr thread points out the strange and confusing nature of translating, on a galaxy-wide kind of scale. Specifically, how it could end up being quite the absurd process trying to list various deserts to a visiting alien, when they all end up translating to "desert desert." So, maybe humanity is "moon moon" then.

Creative Tumblr Thread Imagines Earth As Space Australia from Alien Perspective

It's compelling and somewhat flattering to think of Earth as the most dangerous place in the galaxy, with humans being the only ones crazy enough to tame it. This thought brings fun ideas such as the idea of humans as super resilient space orcs, or the idea that aliens trying to invade Earth could be stopped by local wildlife. It's informative, fun, and somewhat self indulgent.
