Have an extreme week a work? That commute getting to you? All things considered, at least you didn’t swim two miles with your feet bound and your hands bound behind your back.

The Millennium Falcon – Kitbashed
Science fiction implies modern, isn’t that so? All things considered, not if your sci-fi begins with A Long Time Ago… With that at the top of the priority list, how would you create a universe which feels both familiar and absolutely unique?

SCP-504 – SCP Foundation
Two things in this world are known to be uncertain: humor, and client generated content on the web. Set up the two and you get a ton of refuse with your wheat, surely, however not exclusively is there wheat to be found, there are some certain diamonds out there also, to extend the allegory past its limit. An undisputed top choice of mine is the progressing project known as SCP (Secure, Contain, Protect) which has as its pride that there exists a highly confidential organization entrusted with disguising and containing clairvoyant and supernatural oddities. Community individuals contribute sections and most are intense, however there are various diverting passages too, and one of my most loved includes an uncommon strain of tomatoes which fling themselves, viciously, toward any perceptible joke. SCP-504-J, introduced for your consideration; first found “after a lady answered to the police that her rancher spouse had been ‘killed by his lunch.'” (Bonus: SCP-clear, which peruses, completely, “It’s a stone that makes you procrastinate. I’ll complete this later.”)
