Abraham Lincoln

  1. Wil Wheaton To Play President Abraham Lincoln In A Video Game Because Life Is Grand


    Four score and seven years ago, Wil Wheaton recorded a bunch of lines for Codename S.T.E.A.M., and now you will be able to hear him in the game when it comes out next week—as ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Wait, this makes total sense. Everyone knows that Abraham Lincoln invented the emoticon, and Wil Wheaton is the current president of the Internet! It fits, I tells ya! It aaaaaall fits!

  2. Thanksgiving’s Origin Story Isn’t Exactly What You Were Taught

    Does that mean we're going to get a gritty reboot of Thanksgiving?

    The story goes: in 1621, Squanto taught Pilgrims how to survive and farm in the new world. After the Pilgrims' first successful harvest, they had a big feast to thank the Native Americans for helping them not die and probably apologize for the smallpox. It turns out that's not so much the story of the first Thanksgiving as a Thanksgiving.

  5. Our 16th President Gets The 16-Bit Treatment In This Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Video Game

    Bloody Good Fun

    I'm not sure how many of you thought Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was a good idea for a movie to begin with but this made me chuckle. YouTube user freddiew is calling this fake video game 8-bit, and we'll usually default to whatever the creator decided for a name, but in this case we couldn't help but point out that titling this one with its more appropriate number makes more sense. After all, Lincoln was our 16th President. It's ok though, we'll forgive them, since 8-Bitham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter does have a nice ring to it. Bit-technicalities aside, enjoy!

  6. Abraham Lincoln Did Not Invent Facebook, Winkelvoss Twins Unable to Sue

    Educated Guess

    A pretty adorable internet hoax has been debunked that concerns the real origins of Facebook and one of the country's most popular presidents. After someone posted an anecdote about a visit to the Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois, a rumor started spreading -- and trending on Twitter -- that Abraham Lincoln had invented a primitive, pre-digital version of Facebook. But alas, Aaron Sorkin does not have a potentially wonderful prequel to The Social Network to write, because this was proven to be fiction. No, Seth Grahame-Smith should take this one.

  7. Someone Robbed Abraham Lincoln’s Tomb! (But At Least Lincoln Is Still There!)


    Attention history geeks and geeks clamoring for a third National Treasure movie: Thieves -- copper thieves -- have stolen a three-foot-long copper sword from the tomb of our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln! The theft is supposed to have taken place some time between late September and earlier this month, and the people in charge are baffled as to why someone would go for this particular artifact. We just want to know who will write the screenplay, who will direct it, and will Nicolas Cage reunite with Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger, Jon Voight, and Helen Mirren for another historical action adventure movie! Heaven knows he could use some cheering up!

  8. Things We Saw Today: Abraham Lincoln, Ghostbuster

    Things We Saw Today

    Now that he is both a vampire hunter and a Ghostbuster, I like to pretend that Abraham Lincoln is President of the Dead People and benevolently leads them in the war against the Good Dead and the Evil Dead, emerging victorious when all can live with each other in eternal, spookyass harmony.

  9. The Coolest Sci-Fi Homage to Mt. Rushmore You’ll See Today [Pic]

    In his aptly titled work "Mt. BadA$$," DeviantARTist Fooray reimagines Mt. Rushmore as a monument not to great U.S. presidents, but to pillars of sci-fi and geekdom, with Iron Man, RoboCop, Boba Fett, and the Predator taking the places of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln, respectively.
