This Is the Last Trailer Divergent Has to Convince You To See It

Here it is: The final trailer for Divergent, based on the first book in Veronica Roth‘s best-selling YA trilogy. When it comes out on March 21st, will you be in line? The way the studio’s releasing trailers and pics seemingly out into the ether makes me think we might have another The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones on our hands. Seriously, the only organic buzz I’ve heard about this movie is people talking about how it affects star Shailene Woodley playing Mary Jane in the Amazing Spider-Man sequels. But it could surprise me and be a big success. We’ll see.

Here’s an Invoice for the Next Time You Get Roped into Family Tech Support

We encourage our readers who find themselves on tech support every holiday season to demand, say, an extra helping of Thanksgiving leftovers to take home. Or maybe I’m just a little fixated on lunch right now.

“Grandma, Give Back My Anime!” A Grandchild’s Struggle With His Otaku Grandmother

“My 89-year-old grandmother borrowed all of my anime DVDs and hasn’t given them back. How can I get her to return them?”

This may sound like the beginning of a joke “Ask Abby”, but for one Japanese reader of a website called My Navi, this is a serious question. In the website’s advice column, the reader explained the story to the rest of the users and sincerely wanted their advice on taking back his DVDs from his newly-inducted-otaku grandma.

So behold! From the mind of a five-year-old: Axe Cop! About a cop with an axe. And aliens. And Hitler. And zombies. And… a poop monster? I’m sold.
