  2. New York Times Magazine Cover Features Hillary Clinton’s Face Photoshopped Into Flesh-Colored Moon

    what is this I don't even

    David Joachim, editor of the Washington bureau of the New York Times, just tweeted the cover of this week's New York Times Magazine, and it's no moon. It's an inexplicable, not particularly creative, visual metaphor that would be incredibly visually unflattering no matter whose face you did it to. Also, part of a weird trend. But I know what my nerd brain is saying about it. It's saying "MOISTURIZE ME," and wondering if Planet Hillary could hang out with Mogo so he'd be less lonely, defeat Unicron, or negotiate peace with Galactus.

  3. This Video of a New York City Window Cleaner Is Equal Parts Stressful and Fascinating [Video]

    This footage was taken moments before he fell off a building and Iron Man caught him.

    Window cleaners (they don’t like the term “window washer”) aren’t just the random guys who get saved in the first act of every superhero movie. Some of them do their jobs because they love it — like Brent Weingard, who’s been in the business for 35 years and who was interviewed by The New York […]

  5. Things We Saw Today: Game Of Thrones Dragons Get Revenge On The NY Times

    Things We Saw Today

    Surfing the web today you might have noticed HBO took out huge, site-spanning advertisements for Season 3 of Game of Thrones which featured the shadow of a dragon passing over the page. Well here's the still version of that from today's NY Times. (I'm gonna say it's revenge for this.)We sell ad space here on The Mary Sue but this is one I would have paid to have on the site.

  6. Elon Musk and New York Times Duke It Out Over Tesla Supercharger Evaluation

    In case you weren't already aware, Tesla Motors' Elon Musk and The New York Times' John M. Broder have been involved in something of a brouhaha ever since Broder published a rather damning evaluation of Tesla's Supercharger network, and therefore their Model S electric vehicles, on the East Coast last Friday. Essentially, Musk and Tesla contend that Broder essentially sabotaged his own review, and Broder argues that everything he did during the review was justified. Musk has since come forward with a whole mess of data on the trip, but the reality of the situation is still rather murky.

  7. Critic Reviews Melissa McCarthy’s New Film By Calling Her Fat

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    Perhaps it's time for some critics to go back to school. Why? Because they're giving other critics a bad name by not understanding the job. The latest perpetrator is New York Observer’s Rex Reed, who decided he might as well comment on Melissa McCarthy's weight in his review of Identity Thief because...because...nope, sorry, can't think of a single reason.

  8. New Software Looks to Predict the Future From Newspaper Headlines

    Software that predicts the news of tomorrow by analyzing the headlines of yesterday sounds like the plot of a Nicolas Cage movie, but it's really happening. Researchers at Microsoft and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have developed a system that predicts outbreaks of disease and violence by analyzing newspaper headlines. The system was tested on over two decades of New York Times archives, and accurately predicted outcomes 70 to 90 percent of the time.

  9. Head in Sand: China Blocks The New York Times Over Article Critical of Leadership

    China's fairly notorious for the stranglehold they keep on their country's ability to browse the Internet. Censorship, in general, is the name of the game, and they apply it liberally. It should come as no surprise then that China's gone and blocked the New York Times over an article critical of Wen Jiabao, their prime minister, and his family. Seems that his relatives have become "mysteriously" wealthy since Mr. Wen's rise to power, and China's not a fan of anyone that points it out.

  10. NY Times Wakes The Dragon By Insulting Game Of Thrones Viewers

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    See that face Daenerys is making? That's the face I'm making in the general direction of the New York Times today. Why? Because yet again they've trolled us and assigned someone who apparently hates fantasy fiction to review HBO's Game of Thrones Season 2. That makes sense, right?
