  4. RIP: Mathematician John Nash and Wife Alicia Nash Perish In Car Crash

    The Beautiful Mind was 86.

    If you saw A Beautiful Mind, you may have not only become fascinated by game theory, but also by the life of Nobel Prize-winning mathematician, John Nash. While his life was way more complicated than was presented in the film, there's no question that his work in game theory, and more recently in geometric analysis as a senior research mathematician at Princeton, changed both fields forever. Sadly, he and his wife, Alicia Nash, passed away yesterday in a car crash in New Jersey.

    Like, real censorship. Not being disagreed with on the Internet.

  8. Review: Tomorrowland is a Disneyfied Take on The Disaster Film

    A Little Too Preachy and With Questionable Performances, but Great Visuals and Worthy Message

    One of the interesting things about Disney's Live Action Films, is the fact that they usually mirror the current trends in Hollywood, and take a family friendly approach to the genre and spin it with a Disney philosophy. Sometimes this leads to good movies (I'll defend Condorman to my death) and sometimes the results are a bit more questionable (anyone remember that Star Wars rip-off Black Hole).

  11. Jurassic World‘s Chris Pratt Apologizes In Advance For His Stupidity/ Insensitivity/ Unprofessionalism

    Well, that's proactive.

    Chris Pratt totally apologizes. What did he do? Well, nothing yet. But after experiencing countless press junkets himself, and watching how members of the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast crashed and burned while promoting their film, Pratt figures it's better to be safe than sorry.

  12. Want To Get More Girls Into STEM? Get Them Into Tinker Bell.

    A "tinker fairy" is just Disney for "mechanical engineer."

    The Wonder Woman movie seems ages away. We know a Black Widow film isn’t happening. So when it comes to female icons carrying a mainstream franchise, what options do we have? Maybe, among the vigilantes with mutant powers dominating the big screen, we need to make room for an inventor yielding a T-Bar and Pixie Dust. You know, Tinker Bell.

  13. Let’s Talk About Sex (in Video Games), Baby

    Don't be shy!

    We have sex on our phones. We have sex with our webcams. We have sex with only images and sex with nothing but walls of text. We fuck people we never smell, never suck. Digital sex is as everyday as physical sex, and what better art form to capture that than the most interactive kind: a video game?
