We’re major sucker for con proposals. This weekend at Geek Girl Con (which our own Susana and Jill attended), it was Cierra, who proposed to her boyfriend (now fiancé) Gahan. She proposed with a custom Magic: The Gathering “Rings Of Brightearth” card, the bottom of which said “Will you Marry Me?” (When Geeks Wed)

In the study, three volunteers were suddenly blasted with an alarm while sitting in the Chilly Chair, while three heard the alarm without the effects of the Chilly Chair.

He found that Chilly Chair users showed stronger reactions. Chilly Chair users also rated their own surprise as higher.
These people created a Lost Dharma Initiative-themed nursery for their child, because every parent loves to imagine their child in the middle of a death island. (In all honesty, though, it’s adorable) (Look at This Frakking Geekster)
Of course you want this Cthulu purse. Of course you do. (io9)
Her Universe, self-described as “a clothing line featuring fashionable, feminine products for fangirls,” will be debuting a Mara Jade T-shirt at Star Wars Celebration VI next week. It was designed by Cat Staggs. (Geek Femme)
- Hugh Jackman has gone on record saying the Wolverine is going to be nothing like X-Men: Origins. (Blastr)
