Trump's 'Space Force' Is Officially A Go And The Internet Is Going Bananas

Donald Trump's "Space Force" proposal is officially coming to fruition, according to an announcement made by Vice President Mike Pence this morning. Pence stated that the Pentagon has started the planning process for the Space Force which, if authorized by Congress, will constitute the sixth branch of United States Military.

The announcement comes two months after Trump called for a Space Force on the grounds that the US should have the potential to protect its military dominance in space against the likes of China and Russia, who have begun making their own respective outer-space advancements. Specifically, a Space Force would serve to defend American satellites from attack.

China and Russia are currently looking to "reduce US military effectiveness," Pence said in a report by USA Today.

Don't get too comfortable with the idea of having a Space Force yet, however. The Trump Administration still needs to get approval from Congress in order to receive funding, although Pence appears hopeful that they are gaining support for the plan.

Should the Administration receive the necessary funding, Pence stated in his speech that the Space Force will be completed by 2020, and that a US Space Command will be created beforehand, drawing officers and forces from other current military branches.

People on the internet have been offering their thoughts on the Space Force, many more snarky than others. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

Chinese Prom Dress Backlash Tweet Has Inspired Some Spicy Parodies

There was some serious prom dress controversy last week after high school student Keziah posted prom photos of herself wearing a cheongsam - a traditional Chinese dress. While Keziah had many supporters, several people were adamantly against her dress choice, citing racism and appropriation of culture. Twitter user Jeremy Lam was one of these opponents, retweeting Keziah's photos with the caption "My culture is NOT your goddamn prom dress." 

Lam ended up seeing his own backlash as people found him guilty of bullying - but the best Lam backlash comes in the form of tweet parodies. His dramatic quip has made for some hilarious Twitter memes, featuring the likes of Guy Fieri and our favorite lizard person, Mark Zuckerberg.

Karma Is A B*tch: The Chinese Makeover Meme That's Taking Over The Internet

First there was the Blue Whale Challenge, then the Tide Pod challenge. Now we've got the Karma Is A Bitch Challenge, which is decidedly less deadly than its predecessors. The Chinese video meme involves mouthing lyrics to Kreayshawn's "Gucci Gucci" while wearing drab clothing and minimal makeup - before throwing a scarf or jacket in front of ones face and "transforming" into a more glamorous, fierce look. 

A compilation of the memes went viral yesterday on Reddit, leading to features on Mashable and Metro. The sassy videos are incredibly entertaining, adding some fun to the makeover trope that's been popular since Pygmalion and She's All That. We've included a couple compilations, as well as Davison Video's handy explainer, for your viral video enjoyment.
