  1. In the Latest Poster For The Hobbit, Legolas Is… Well, Legolas

    Somewhere Thranduil's perfect eyebrow is twitching.

    Hold it right there, Mr. Greenleaf. I don't think you know how this whole Battle of the Five Armies poster thing works. You're supposed to look menacingly at the camera in agonizing close-up, and here you're just doing the same "look down the length of your arrow" you always do. You know you beat out your impossibly perfect elk-riding party dad for this spot, right? He's probably so disappointed in you.

  2. JK Rowling Knows What We Like, Gives Us What’s Probably a Harry Potter-Related Riddle On Twitter

    Alas, I've transfigured my tweets!

    Everybody knows that JK Rowling loves the heck out of riddles. Heck, she even named a character "Riddle," and then she and her editors meticulously figured out a different first and middle name for the guy so they could do that "I am Lord Voldemort" thing in every language the books got published in. So of course she was bound to deliver us some sort of update on the Fantastic Beasts movies via an anagram. Of course.

  3. #WhyWonderWoman Gives Our Favorite Amazon the Appreciation That DC Won’t

    Why Wonder Woman: because you're still asking us that question.

    In the wake of yesterday's very unfortunate lasso-removing, Superman "scoring" Wonder Woman t-shirt, last night our friend and TMS contributor Alan Kistler started a great hashtag to talk about how Wonder Woman has touched the lives of so many people in a positive way. The conversation hasn't ended yet (and you should join in!), but we've rounded up a few of our favorite tweets so far. Just... don't look at me while you're reading them. I might be tearing up over here.

  4. UK Man Jailed For Tweeting Rape Threats In Response To Jane Austen Banknote Campaign

    Badly done, asshole. Badly done, indeed.

    Trigger warning for threats and harassment. When Peter Nunn launched what the prosecution called an online "campaign of hatred" last July to protest Jane Austen's image being placed on the £10 note, the 33-year-old seemed to feel he was immune from punishment.

  5. Hoax Alert: Ello Does Not Classify #GamerGate as Hate Speech

    We're sorry.

    For the past few days, the Internet's been abuzz with invitation codes for Ello, which purports to be a considerate social media alternative that won't collect and sell your personal information (see, we italicized won't, ’cause it makes the competition look like...) Anyway, the mysteriousness of Ello's beta test has already set the stage for a lot of misinformation, including—well, this.

  6. Allow Dorkly to Blow Your Mind 15 Times Courtesy of Neil deGrasse Tyson

    Not all of them are dog butt related, sadly.

    Social media is great if only for giving brilliant people like Neil deGrasse Tyson an outlet to bestow their genius on the rest of humanity. So, here are 15 times that the famed astrophysicist did just that with his regular musings on Twitter as collected by Dorkly.

  7. New Market Research Shows The Annual Median Income of Tumblr Users Is… $80K?

    Shhh, LinkedIn. No one cares 'bout your $80K plus.

    If your dash is at all similar to mine, you'd have no reason to suspect that Tumblr's user base is particularly privileged, financially speaking—but then again, it's difficult to gauge a community's wealth from its knack for curating cat videos and pizza tattoos.

  8. Chris Pratt Was a Dweeby Lil’ Surfer Baby In His First Ever Headshot

    Or, as he puts it, "Douchemaster McChest."

    Yesterday Chris Pratt tweeted this picture out of the very first headshot he ever took back in 2000 and oh my God, he looks like the villain in an '90s spring break movie. I just want to pick him up by his open Ralph Lauren collar and snuggle him until he learns the true meaning of friendship. Bless you, Chris Pratt. Thank you for this wonderful gift.
