  1. I Went To The Mary Sue’s NYCC Panel And This Is What I Saw

    The Mary Sue

    We were too busy doing our panel to record our panel at New York Comic Con this weekend, so we reached out to a friend of the blog (this isn't the first time he's written for us, but, well, it's been a while) to provide us with recap. So if you weren't there, here's what happened! Buh-gow! This past weekend, The Mary Sue hosted its first-ever panel discussion; in it, a group of six fans and creators talked about diversity in media, finding a character you can identify with, and what makes the X-Men so fabulous.

  2. Air Force Traces F-22 Oxygen Problems to Faulty Valve, Prepares to Lift Flight Restrictions

    After tense months of research, the U.S. Air Force has announced that it has located the cause of "hypoxia-like" symptoms that have been observed in F-22 Raptor pilots. This is good news for the Air Force, as the breathtakingly expensive aircraft has been repeatedly grounded and severely limited during the ongoing investigation. Now, those limitations will be coming to an end soon.

  4. London’s Lesser Animals Hold Their Own Olympic Relay

    Olympic fever is nearing its zenith, and artists seem to have taken notice. Animators Leo Bridle and Amael Isnard present their own slightly warped view on these events in their short film Olympic Vermin. If you enjoy adorable animals performing endurance events in order to light an "eternal" flame, then you are in luck, my friends.

  5. Conan Plays Minecraft, Gives it a Rating of “26C”

    Conan O'Brien is a lot of things: Comedian, musician, Tilda Swinton stand-in. But he is not a gamer. However, that has not stopped him from trying in a series of review videos called "Clueless Gamer." This week, the object of his bemusement was Minecraft. Things were off to a great start where, within seconds, the late-night funnyman compared it to 19th century Wales. I think he gets it. See the video, after the break.

    Yesterday, the security research group F-Secure received a puzzling email claiming to be from a nuclear scientist with the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI). In it, the author claimed that the country's nuclear facilities were once again under attack. Only this time, the hackers brought Angus Young along for the ride.

  8. Banksy Doesn’t Seem Too Keen on U.K.’s Olympic Missile Plan

    By this point, you are no doubt aware that the U.K. Ministry of Defence is installing surface-to-air missiles around London as a deterrent against would-be airplane hijackers during the Olympics. As you can imagine, some people are unhappy about the idea of having heavy weapons next door. Popular street artist Banksy doesn't seem too happy about it either.

  9. Report: Amazon to Launch “Five or Six” New Kindles

    There is no doubt in anyone's mind that after the stupendously successful launch of the Kindle Fire last year -- and the amazing surge in tablet use that followed -- that Amazon will be trotting out new hardware soon. In fact, some reporters have even touched prototype devices. However, the number of new devices has just doubled from previous reports. This could be a big year for Amazon.

  10. Learn Why the “City of London” is Not “London” in Just Under Five Minutes

    For some of you (particularly, our U.K. readers) this will probably not come as a surprise, but the "City of London" is not actually "London." In fact, as the great Internet explainer C.G.P. Grey reveals, the City of London is sort of its own thing within what we normally call London today. How this came to pass involves a little explaining about parliamentary democracy, history, and military construction, but it's imparted in just under five minutes.
