Also breaking: That is fucking awesome. I don’t care if you love Schwarzenegger the politician or hate his policies — not living in California, I’m under the vague impression that his fuck-ups have been on par with a regular politician, and not the disasters you might expect from a man who willingly made Kindergarten Cop and Junior — that is just totally badass. We all know he’d never use it to hack some hack lobbyist in twain during a boring meetings, but he could… and moreover, he knows he could. If he really had to. Check out some more pics of Schwarzenegger’s office — including a very bizarre video he made in office while holding a very large knife for no apparent reason — over at Geektrooper.

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
