A treasure trove of insane awkwardness. http://bit.ly/bvrdv4

It’s a Flickr photostream of
Firefly and Terminator:TSCC fanboy/girl wet-dream factory Summer Glau posing with
dozens of said fanboys/girls at DragonCon 2010. It really is an
insanely awkward collection of photos, but the creepiest thing about
it isn’t the hunched, wall-eyed males in Steve Jackson Games
t-shirts*, or that the females posing with Glau look like
they just got back from a GLADD-sponsored Serenity LARPing panel: it’s that
Glau’s plasticky, perfect smile is exactly the same in every photo,
no matter how close that jerk-off hand is to copping a feel on some
sideboob.

I mentioned this to a friend over chat,
and an hour later he sent me a link to this:




There you have it folks. The
technological singularity. Somebody call Vernor Vinge.


ADMIT THAT T:TSCC SUCKED AND DESERVED TO BE CANCELED ON THE MESSAGE BOARDS.

GURPS last week.
