This is what it would look like if the Borg only assimilated robots. The Vitruvian Machine by Captain RibMan shows 40+ robots, cyborgs & machines from pop culture. Plus it says Deckard was a replicant. Had that been decided? Huh. Anyway, here's an index:

'Tis the season to break out your inner craft geek. Here a few seasonal concoctions to inspire your own creations. Me, I just eat Turtles. Above, Zero Lives blogger Das Chupa brings us an Angry Birds themed Gingerbread house. I would play that.
A Gingerbread AT-AT. As the card says, that's awesome. As far as I can tell it was made by (or at least photographed by) Chez 282. I first saw it on pacalin's site.
A Gingerbreadhenge, for all you pagans out there, by The Dude (no, not that one.) Found on Clonehenge, which has "the most complete list of Stonehenge replicas on the internet, nay, marry, in the wide world!" I love the internet.
The Star Trek GingerBorg Enterprise is a gingerbread replica of the Enterprise D. Green splotches indicate that Borgs have taken over and are destroying things with lasers. (By audreyh4 at instructables)
And what's a Dr. Who TARDIS without Daleks? They are vegan too, so you know they're truly evil. By Johnson Cameraface.
The gingerboard (gingerbread motherboard) was created in Sweden by Benny, Monica, Anna-Maria and Erik. (Via mediatinker and You Bent My Wookie, who has a great gallery of gingerbread creations)
“I ate his body with some jelly beans and a nice glass of milk thtthththththththth”. I know this gingerbread Hannibal Lecter is only a t-shirt, but somebody ought to make it. (Cannibal by Glennz, via Shirtoid)
For all your geek Christmas needs, Star Wars snowflakes! Above an R2-D2 and C-3PO paper snowflake from the fine folks at The Nerdery. No instructions on making one though, so you're on your own. The two below both have instructions, but are still well beyond my rudimentary scissor skills. Enjoy.
This reminds so much of my gaming days. No, not all the characters, but sitting and watching other people play. From Rachel Morris' cool series of video game posters for The NYU Game Center. (Link via Rampaged Reality)
Outside of this blog, this is a remarkable representation of my pop culture life. And Alec Baldwin was the best Thomas the Tank Engine narrator. (Fisher by Philip Street, a strip that runs in the Globe and Mail and should really be picked up by a syndicator.)
Is there a way to make dinosaurs even more awesome? There is if you make them as Marvel Avengers! Meet Iron Brontosaurus, Captain Ameritops, Hulkasaurus Rex and AnkyloTHORus by d.r3sto who can also be found at Legitimus Maximus. (Link via Herochan)
"Clothes looking a mite tired after too many hours in the saddle? Shirts showing a bit of age - not to mention blood, sweat and engine grease?
You'll look all kinds of silly stomping into a fancy soiree wearing clothes that a Reaver chewed on, so you may want to consider spiffing things up a bit with Ian Leino's newest design: Serenity Sake."
Or perhaps someone will make this sake to help all the Browncoats drown their constant sorrow over the cancellation of Firefly. Get it today at TeeFury for cheap or at Ian's store after that. Use the coupon code THISLAND for 15% off.
Never take a bear's suitcase... Boyle has taken out a shocking number of Paddingtons, but I'm not going to lie, I hope they overwhelm her. (S. Boyle vs. Paddington Bears by Olli Hihnala. Link via Pfangirl)
These Pez dispensers are clearly not child friendly, especially the JFK dispenser. I love the George H. Bush dispenser though I'm sure the Japanese Prime Minister didn't find it as cute. (Pezidents Of The United States by Hillary White at Threadless)
