Star Trek N00b, Episode 20: Tomorrow is Yesterday (And We’re No Longer N00bs!)

Star Trek N00b, Episode 20: Tomorrow is Yesterday (And We’re No Longer N00bs!)

As I mentioned last week, this will be my last Star Trek N00b recap!

That’s right, pour out a bottle of yer fave cheap booze. I am no longer a Star Trek N00b. In an attempt to jump rank, I am currently at Ensign tryouts.

Don’t worry, I’ll still be around writing for the Geekery section and working on all sorts of nerd culture and gaming posts!

With that said, let’s get onto the TIME TRAVEL.

1960′s Space Race

Hmmm, just to get some context, here’s some of the big Real Life space happenings in 1969:

The Soviet Union sends the Venera 5 probe to Venus, followed by Venera 6.

The Soviet Union transferred crew members between two docked spacecraft, the first time this has ever been done.

NASA sends the Mariner 6 probe to Mars.

After extensive test runs, NASA’s Apollo program successfully lands men on the Moon twice in this year.

22 Ways To Eat Soba Noodles Forever

22 Ways To Eat Soba Noodles Forever

Soba noodles, made with buckwheat flour, have all the benefits of other types of noodles or pasta — they’re filling, cheap and easy to make if you need them to be — but they’re just more interesting. They have a strong enough flavor that you can eat them hot and with lots of things or cold and almost on their own and they will taste amazing, but not overpowering. They can fill out other recipes, turn your steamed broccoli into a respectable meal and they go great with peanut butter.

More Than Words: 11 “Queer” Questions From 70 Years Of Gallup Polls

More Than Words: 11 “Queer” Questions From 70 Years Of Gallup Polls

Gallup, Inc. was founded by George Gallup in 1935. Gallup was basically the Nate Silver of his time — he came up with a more accurate way to gauge public opinion, and used it to get a nationally representative slice of answers to nationally important questions. After Gallup, Inc. called FDR’s 1936 victory over Alf Landon (a victory that surprised everyone else, including the reputable pollsters at Literary Digest), the company gained wide recognition. Since then, they’ve been completing 1000 interviews per day to keep up with their two main surveys — one on health and well-being, and the second on politics and the economy.

NSFW Lesbosexy Sunday Is A Spooning Switch

NSFW Lesbosexy Sunday Is A Spooning Switch

+ Here is how to finger a vagina:

“An excellent way to begin manual stimulation is to stick one, and later two or more, finger(s) inside her, with your palm cupped over the mons area. We’re talking about that fleshy ‘mound’ over her pubic bone. Your finger should have freedom to move in and out freely while the palm of your hand can add pressure against her vulva and clitoris. Once you get better, you can start moving your palm to add more stimulation.”

I’m Not Mad, I’m Just Disappointed: Where Are The Women of Google’s Project Ara?

I’m Not Mad, I’m Just Disappointed: Where Are The Women of Google’s Project Ara?

I am a gadget person. I love cool technology. And Project Ara is definitely cool technology. Project Ara refers to a set of instructions for building a modular smartphone—meaning that the hacker/DIY ethos of open operating systems like Android could very well be coming to hardware near you. We already know you love the idea of making your own computer — what if you could select your ideal components from all sorts of different manufacturers and slot them onto a board and have them all talk to each other? If you use a lot of storage, great—slot that block on. If everything you have is in the cloud, maybe boot off that extra storage for a bigger, better battery or a really kickass speaker from your very favorite audio company. Google ATAP (Advanced Technologies and Projects, basically teams of mad scientists making the future happen) is bringing together many companies and developers to put together a product that will (hopefully) have a recognizable presence by 2015 because everyone at ATAP has a self-imposed deadline of two years to create real products to sell to real people.

About Me

Hi my name is Riese and Autostraddle.com is my website. I made this tumblr in mid-2009 because we just can't get enough internet.

Autostraddle likes queers, photography, pretty girls, peanut butter, wide open minds, lesbians in white t-shirts, a-camp and pure poetry. She has many talents, including jumping & tumbling. She also enjoys words, lesbians and girl-on-girl culture. She is best enjoyed with a balanced breakfast at Autostraddle.

I am responsible for everything here, more or less.



Our favorite tumblr is fuck yeah autostraddle

We highly recommend autostraddle captions are funny and camp autostraddle tumblr.

We're also big fans of the less-frequently-updated, but 100% consistently awesome straddle gifs, hotties with autostraddle swag and autostraddle spam.
