To celebrate today, Friday the 13th, unluckiest of days, children's horror writer R. L. Stine has taken to Twitter to write a Goosebumps horror story over the span of a handful of tweets. He wrote the story for fans of The Hub, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the short story yourselves. Head on past the break to check out the story in full, where we've carefully put it all together so you don't have to read a bunch of separate tweets.
It's easy to say that of the all the organs that make up the Military Industrial Complex, none is more genuinely beloved than the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. While some of that admiration comes, no doubt, from their zany proposals, far more comes from the fact that they actually get stuff done -- like inventing the Internet. So it is quite interesting to see that DARPA is looking to learn more about the biological and literary processes behind story-telling in a project called Stories, Neuroscience and Experimental Technologies (STORyNET).
