Kari Byron, On the Importance of Representation in Science

Kari Byron spoke to Mother Jones recently on what it’s like being the Chick on Mythbusters, what her inner twelve year old would think about what she’s doing now, and how babies and science are totally compatible. You just might have to ask your doctor a lot of unexpected questions.

Science Beats James Cameron: Titanic’s Death Scene Officially Mythbusted

Annoyed movie-goers (and director James Cameron) have argued this one for years but we can finally put it to rest. The Mythbusters crew (Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman) tried to figure out if Titanic’s Rose and Jack could both have survived. Cameron may think he had the last word but I think that’s best left to this guy.

Watch This Guy Apply For A Job On Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Show With A Film Featuring His Design Work

Lots of people want in on Joss Whedon’s upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. television show on ABC but perhaps none more than Adam Levermore. He created a short comedy film to act as his resume for production designer on the Avengers spin-off series. And they should really hire him. I mean, besides the fact he pulled this together in two and a half weeks, it’s the eye for detail. “Everything that isn’t part of the building or being worn by the actors was my design work, and I think it really shows what I can do to bring a unified, coherent feel to a fictional world,” he writes. Of course it does help Levermore to have Mythbusters’ Grant Imahara playing himself and Whedon cohort Amber Benson in the mix. The short also stars Taryn O’Neill, Stephanie Thorpe, Andrew Seely, and Yuri Lowenthal. Seriously, give the guy the job already or let him in for an interview at the very least

Oh, I forgot, it was written by Amy Berg and there’s also a Bear McCreary score. I mean, come on!

I Guess I Can't Argue With That

James Cameron Sinks Our Ship (Or, At Least, Our AU)

Yeah, we all think about this stuff too much

James Cameron doesn’t care what you think. It’s one of the many privileges of having made billions of dollars. But even mega movie tyrants can get sick of myths that float around the internet. Especially if they have to do with Titanic.

In response to the long-standing theory explored by a Reddit user that Jack could have easily fit onto that door with Rose (don’t pretend like you don’t know what we’re talking about), Cameron has gone on the record stating that it’s not a question of space, but a question of buoyancy.

Yes, I read that right: there might be guillotines.
