In HTML and CSS, ChuckNorris is a color. A deep red. And NinjaTurtle is a gnarly green. Just type this into your address bar to check it out for yourself:

"In the beginning there was NCSA Mosaic, and Mosaic called itself NCSA_Mosaic/2.0 (Windows 3.1), and Mosaic displayed pictures along with text, and there was much rejoicing."

OK Geeks, leave your StarFleet uniforms in the closet. Pretty sure you can't top this brief bit of cosplay by ESA astronaut  +Samantha Cristoforetti channeling her inner Captain Janeway. :) She is referring to Janeway's love of coffee, and the fact that one of the items the Dragon brought to the ISS was an espresso machine.

“"There's coffee in that nebula"... ehm, I mean... in that #Dragon.”

One cannot help but note that out of the crew, Captain Picard's head is the most accurately represented in this medium.

Shlemiel the Painter's Algorithm

Shlemiel gets a job as a street painter, painting the dotted lines down the middle of the road. On the first day he takes a can of paint out to the road and finishes 300 yards of the road. "That's pretty good!" says his boss, "you're a fast worker!" and pays him a kopeck.

The next day Shlemiel only gets 150 yards done. "Well, that's not nearly as good as yesterday, but you're still a fast worker. 150 yards is respectable," and pays him a kopeck.

The next day Shlemiel paints 30 yards of the road. "Only 30!" shouts his boss. "That's unacceptable! On the first day you did ten times that much work! What's going on?"

"I can't help it," says Shlemiel. "Every day I get farther and farther away from the paint can!"
