We can all stop pretending that we don't care about getting gifts for our birthday or the holidays, and we have some "Star Trek" gift ideas that can help if you are a bit stuck on what to get those around you.

Yeah, spending time with those we love is very important, and blah blah, but gifts are fun, and they're an excellent way to show people you love them, and sometimes you pay attention to what they like.


Whether you live in the Star Trek universe or good old regular Earth, getting a gift for someone can show that you care about them, no matter the price. Finding the perfect gift for someone can be like a sport. But it can be hard and confusing. After all, even Spock found the perfect gift for Captain Kirk's birthday—even if the message was a bit confusing.

KIRK: It had the virtue of never having been tried. Oh, by the way... thank you for this.

SPOCK: I know of your fondness for antiques.

KIRK: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Message, Spock?

SPOCK: None that I'm conscious of... except, of course, happy birthday."

Needless to say, I think Trekkies will like these presents.

Star Trek Transporter Heat Changing Mug

Transporting is still not a reality. Dispersing someone at a molecular level and rebuild them in a different location still seems scary and way in the future. But, we have something that comes close.

This heat changing mug has Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Uhura start at the transporter room and appear on a Planet's surface when you add your favorite coffee or tea. The colder the weather gets the more appropriate this gift is, so it's perfect for a Holiday party. Energize!

Star Trek Next Generation Enterprise Necklace

This tiny version of the USS Enterprise is the perfect stocking stuffer or for that person that won't leave their house without their jewelry. And goes well with any outfit. Plus, it is one way to remind people where their loyalty stands.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
