Article Pwn Up: Lose Yourself

By Jake Young / January 20, 2014

After last week's edition (the Pulitzer award winning "Pwn Up: Our Moment of Triumph") we asked our readers to share stories about moments when victory evaded their grasp. You guys did not disappoint with your disappointments and we're going to share some of the best ones. If you have a moment so nerdy that you need to tell the Internet about it, we want you to send your submissions to dorklypwnup at gmail

 

Pwn Up: Lose Yourself

 

This summer me and my sister were staying at my cousin's for the night since we both had a lot of free time on our hands. Me and my cousin ended up playing endless hours of Pokemon Emerald and ranting about it the whole day while my bored sibling just watched us since she wasn't into Pokemon.

Sometime after midnight we turned my cousin's room into a battle arena while role playing as our favorite Pocket Monsters; I was Pikachu and she was Lillipup. So basically imagine the two of us screaming random Pokemon moves accompanying it with singing the battle theme song in our pajamas ,running around the room like maniacs. The worst part was we were both pant-less. We had a blast goofing around with each other performing every single move available, but the horrifying truth was that we were completely unaware my sister was sitting in a corner and filming the entire process.

Months passed and we forgot about that until a few weeks ago my sibling did the most embarrassing thing to me after an argument we had; I witnessed her show the video (which my soul was completely unaware of) to the entire household because she wanted to get back to me! I ran to my room feeling heavily defeated when I heard the family blast in a laugh while she showed it to my parents . Now I also know if I ever dare make her too angry or do something similar again, she'll put the video on the internet.

Article Star Trek's Uhura Was Convinced To Stay On The Show...By Martin Luther King Jr.

By Andrew Bridgman / January 20, 2014

  

 

While Star Trek is often dismissed as a weird subsection of nerd culture, it's hard to downplay how hugely important it was to society (outside of the convention world) - the series, the brainchild of creator Gene Roddenberry, presented a vision of the future that was almost unheard of at the time (near the height of the Cold War): it was a future that was bright, where the possibilities were endless. It was a future where people of all beliefs, nationalities, creeds, races, and species worked together to achieve great things. It was a future of tolerance and peace. While the rest of the world was expecting the future to be one of burnt skies and atomic fallout, Star Trek said we'd be traveling through space (granted - to 1920's gangster planets and also wrestling with lizard people, but still).

Also, it contained the first scripted interracial on-screen kiss in television history, between Nichelle Nichols' Lieutenant Uhura and William Shatner's Captain Kirk (granted - while both were being controlled by faux-Greek aliens using telekinesis, but still).
