Would you like to be remembered as a pathetic geek who based his entire life around a piece of pop-culture sci-fi entertainment that you didn't even have a hand in creating, filling a unique role of someone who's completely passive yet also obsessive compulsive? Great! This Star Trek urn is for you. It's shiny, futuristic-looking (for now), and just so above-and-beyond dorky that you'll probably get into a special section of Nerd Heaven where they have 1,000,000-sided die and piles of mint-condition magic cards as high as the eye can see. Are you too cool for that? Does the idea of someone wanting to be placed inside something Star-Trek-themed for all of eternity give you a serious urge to give someone a wedgie? Well, Eternal Image, the company behind the Star Trek urn, has something for you too, my fratty friend: Major League Baseball urns and caskets. They also make a Cat Fanciers' Association production urn, but I think that might go too far into the realm of the depressingly pathetic for me to investigate and make fun of with a clear conscience.

It doesn't have the same track record for improved performance as Intel. In the past it's stumbled, barely keeping pace with its larger competitor.

The second generation of Ryzen does.
Despite the fact they are flesh-eating guerilla warriors capable of thoroughly thrashing a vastly technologically superior foe, everyone's takeaway about the Ewoks is that they're cute, stress-lowering, fuzzy teddy bears. But Star Wars. Battlefront II has added a new mode that reminds us that these teddies can be utterly terrifying when you're their target.
