  1. Things We Saw Today: Who Needs Hogsmeade, Oreo May Have A Butterbeer Flavor

    If these taste remotely like rootbeer I'm calling shenanigans.

    Someone alerted us to these cookies via e-mail, but there's no confirmation yet from Nabisco if this package is real or just photoshopped by someone with a Mirror of Erised.

  2. Discovery Is Misleading Scientists To Be Interviewed for Shark Week Pseudoscience

    Reminder: Real sharks are incredibly interesting.

    Last year Discovery got on the Internet's bad side by presenting a fictional story about a fictional search for a fictional megalodon, but it turns out they like it there. They're continuing their shady pseudoscience practices and io9 is reporting that they're misleading scientists to get interviews for their fake Shark Week documentaries.

  4. Discovery’s Shark Week Will Kick Off With Another Bullshit “Documentary” Instead of Real Science

    Discovery Channel, stahp.

    Remember last year when the Discovery Channel lied about their Shark Week megalodon movie being a documentary? Looks like they're trying to one-up themselves this year with another "documentary," and they just owned up to being behind the above video as a marketing ploy with Nissan.

  5. #CrushItLikeQuint With Jaws Beer Can Re-Release

    Here's to swimmin' with bowlegged women.

    We tend to focus more on sci-fi and fantasy movies here at Geekosystem, but any film geek will tell you it doesn't get much better than Jaws. To celebrate how great Jaws is, and how great Shark Week used to be, the Narragansett Brewery re-released the can famously crushed by Quint the film. Oh, show me the way to go home...

  6. 5 Creatures That Would Make Perfect Subjects For Fake Discovery Channel Documentaries

    If the Discovery Channel says that unicorns are real then they have to be, right?

    Now that Shark Week is over and the outrage over Megalodon is winding down, Discovery Channel is going to need some new creatures to make fictional documentaries about. Since mermaids have been done already, might we suggest some of these animals as subjects?

  9. Watch Tara Reid Vaguely Attempt To Explain How Sharks Work For Discovery Channel [Video]

    Tara, honey, please stop it. You're not Brian Fellows.

    And the mindless Shark Week programming keeps on coming! The other night on Discovery Channel's Shark After Dark, which I guess is like Talking Dead but for Shark Week, Sharknado star Tara Reid joined host Josh Wolf and co-star Ian Ziering to teach us literally nothing about sharks. Seriously, I know less about sharks now than I did ten minutes ago.

  10. Somebody Found a Dead Shark On a Queens-Bound NYC Subway Last Night

    When asked, the shark shrugged and said that he couldn't afford to live in Manhattan anymore.

    Angry science junkies may have boycotted Discovery Channel for airing that completely bogus Megalodon documentary, but apparently the Universe won't allow us to let go of Shark Week so easily this year. Or, at least, this dead shark that showed up on the N train last night in New York City didn't. We're sorry, Shark Week.
