We've teamed up with the geniuses at Despair, Inc. again to bring you a totally demotivating and hilarious 2016 calendar. You'll get a different Demotivator each month (see below) as well as important dates in geek history. Impress your friends with your geeky trivia knowledge! Never forget Talk Like A Pirate Day again! Send @neiltyson a Happy Birthday tweet right on time! The superpowers you will gain from having this calendar cannot possibly fit in one paragraph. Keep it for yourself or give it to that geek in your life who has everything but still finds stuff to complain about. They'll love it but pretend to hate it. That's just how they roll.

And dozens and dozens more!

Includes the following Demotivator designs:

  • Tradition: Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
  • Potential: Not everyone gets to be an astronaut when they grow up.
  • Wishes: When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteor hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteorite.
  • Believe in Yourself: Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.
  • Achievement: You can do anything you set your mind to when you have vision, determination, and an endless supply of expendable labor.
  • Get to Work: You aren't being paid to believe in the power of your dreams.
  • Shoot for the Moon: Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. Of course, then your eyeballs will boil and your lungs explode from decompression. But that's what you get for being a damn showoff.
  • Ambition: The journey of a thousand miles sometimes ends very, very badly.
  • Procrastination: Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.
  • Meetings: None of us is as dumb as all of us.
  • Mistakes: It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.
  • Motivation: If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you, you probably have a very easy job. The kind robots will be doing soon.
