  1. Moffat Says Female Doctor & Writers Could Happen, He Has A “Folder of Women”

    One step forward, two steps back, Moff.

    Speaking, for reasons unknown, at the Sky Women in Television and Film Awards, Steven Moffat confirmed that one day the Doctor will be a woman—but it won't be any time soon.

  2. Humans Will Be Setting Foot on the Moon Again. And Mars. NASA Pinky Swears.

    It Came From Outer Space

    About a month and a half ago it was announced that NASA might be building a manned outpost located beyond the far side of the moon, giving them a base from which to explore near-Earth asteroids, the moon, and Mars, with the goal of eventually sending astronauts to all three places. And now it looks like NASA will probably announce their official plans to build such a station soon—in part because President Obama got re-elected.

  3. Mitt Romney Gains Coveted Joss Whedon Endorsement, Probably Doesn’t Want It


    This morning, as one third of the editorial staff of The Mary Sue have been evacuated from their homes (but not to New Jersey, thank goodness), comes this news. Great. Check it out below.

  5. A Magic (the Gathering) Binder Full of Women

    If you missed the presidential debate a couple of days ago, and also somehow avoided all social media platforms, and also didn't talk to a single American human soul, you might have missed Mitt Romney's instantly infamous quote regarding a "binder full of women." The unfortunately-worded quote was in response to a question regarding fixing the inequalities in the workplace. Romney attempted to display his equality ideals by noting that he specifically went looking for women to fill seats in his Cabinet when he became the governor of Massachusetts. Unfortunately, the words he used were amusing, and the meme caught on. This is our favorite iteration of the meme, Magic Binder Full of Women, because we all still have our binders full of Magic and other various trading cards sitting at the bottom of our closets.

  6. Mitt Romney’s “Binders Full of Women” Comment Sparks Outrage, Fact-Checking, A Tumblr Meme

    Lies Damned Lies

    By now you've probably heard about Mitt Romney's "binders full of women" comment from last night's presidential debate. If not, to recap: Romney answered a question about pay equality with an anecdote about how, as governor of Massachusetts, he responded to the lack of qualified female applicants for cabinet positions (O RLY, Mitt?) by making a "concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women’s groups and said, 'Can you help us find folks,' and they brought us whole binders full of women."

  7. If You Google Image Search “Completely Wrong,” You’ll Mostly Get Pictures of Mitt Romney [UPDATE]

    In case you didn't already know, people were "completely wrong" about presidential candidate Mitt Romney's relatively recent 47% gaffe. This is the mantra that Romney's campaign pushed after the secret recording made headlines and stirred the political pundits on both sides into a frenzy [Romney's apology for the debacle uses the phrase to suggest that he, perhaps, was out of line]. Unfortunately, it appears that this has also had an unintended side effect. Using Google Image Search for the phrase "completely wrong" mostly brings up photos of Mitt Romney.

  8. You Mess With Big Bird, You Mess With La Forge

    Inside of a dog it's too dark to read

    I am personally outraged that any serious contender for the White House would target as part of his campaign the children of America in this fashion. Educators across the country, as well as millions of children and adults know that the programming on PBS has been responsible for significant improvements in education, literacy, math, science and life skills for generations of our children. PBS represents .00016% of our nation's budget, yet this free resource benefits kids across all economic circumstances. Defunding PBS directly punishes the less fortunate by removing this trusted and extraordinary educational resource available to all... But you don't have to take my word for it... Make your own decision about how you feel about Romney's campaign against PBS, and act.LeVar Burton. To our nerdy selves, LeVar Burton is first and foremost Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge of the USS Enterprise. But to our inner children, he's first and foremost LeVar Burton, host of Reading Rainbow, the third longest running kids series on PBS, behind Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood (and still alive and well today in best selling app form). And with the use of his Reading Rainbow catch phrase, you know he's still got it. Previously in PBS

  9. Big Bird Reacts To Last Night’s Presidential Debate (Really)

    And All Was Right With the World

    Did you watch the Presidential debates last night? If so, you heard candidate Mitt Romney talk about cutting the government's funding of PBS (all 0.01% of it). As if that wasn't awkward enough, considering the debate was being moderated by long-time PBS journalist Jim Lehrer, Romney also name checked Big Bird. And it was the "OH SNAP!" heard around the world. Twitter saw a huge rise in "Big Bird" tweets seconds later and continuing on through the night with mostly everyone coming to the yellow fowl's defense. But today, something even more amazing happened. Big Bird responded, in his own Big Bird way, from the Sesame Street twitter account. Sesame Workshop, the group behind Sesame Street, also had something to say...

  10. Guillermo del Toro Changed His Mind On Pacific Rim 3D Conversion, Calls It “Doing A Romney”

    And That's Terrible

    The phrase "post-production 3D conversion" usually evokes a strong reaction in movie goers. Many aren't fans of 3D in general so when it's done after the fact, and sometimes against the director's wishes, it's even worse. But then there are those times when a director who was previously against the idea, changes his mind. Like Guillermo del Toro with his sci-fi disaster film, Pacific Rim. I'll let him explain.

  11. Rush Limbaugh Thinks The Dark Knight Rises’ Bane Is Part Of A Political Agenda [LOL]

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    "Have you heard, this new movie, the Batman movie -- what is it, the Dark Knight Lights Up or something? Whatever the name of it is. That's right, Dark Knight Rises, Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in the Dark Knight Rises is named Bane. B-A-N-E. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran, and around which there's now this make-believe controversy? Bain. The movie has been in the works for a long time, the release date's been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental, that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing, four-eyed, whatever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane?

  12. Twitter To Have Political Promoted Tweets

    It wasn't too long ago that Twitter got involved in the advertising business by announcing promoted tweets and plugging them into your stream whether you followed the source account of not. Now, in an effort to explain their advertising horizons, Twitter is announcing a new variety of promoted tweets: Political ads.

    You'll be able to tell what tweets are political promotions based on the little arrow in the bottom right corner. If it is purple, it's political. Orange is commercial. A number of campaigns have already hopped on this opportunity including, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Mitt Romney. The Washington Post reports that the promoted tweets will come as search results, but also in the timeline of users who follow a political campaign. Let's hope Twitter is smart enough to narrow down the appropriate party to promote to a given account.
