We don't want to play into the stereotype that geeks don't like sports, but it goes without saying that puppies are adorable. Everyone loves puppies, and while Animal Planet's annual Puppy Bowl is always a welcome distraction from all the football goings-on of the day, this year there's even a camera to give us all a behind the scenes look into the puppy locker room. It's exactly as cute as you would expect it to be.Read More

We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty
Get ready, we have some highly important world record news for you! Truffles the guinea pig, who belongs to 13-year-old Chloe Macari of Fife, Scotland, has officially broken the world record for a guinea pig jump by jumping a distance of 12 inches. The previous record was shattered -- shattered, we tell you! -- by a whopping four inches. Macari was prompted to train Truffles once she saw how relatively short that jump was. (Eight inches? Pssssht.) And Truffles seemed happy to take on the challenge, especially once his favorite food, cucumber, was involved as a prize. The jump, which took place on February 21, was accepted by Guinness World Records, which makes it officially official. Congratulations to Truffles and his human, Chloe! Note: This record was only concerned with distance, not height. So let's stay tuned to see if Truffles starts reaching for the skies! (via Geekosystem)Read More
No. No no no no no no no. no.
Do you ever wish you could revisit those days before you found out some of the freakiest, scariest, implausible spoilers in sci-fi fandom? These kids can help.

So did Buzz's depressive episode in Toy Story, so I can only assume that kid!me was phobic about existential angst.Read More

Things to Do With Your Kids
During one's first year of speaking, it is rare that anything truly unique comes out. Usually it's the standard fare of "Mom/Dad," "Cat," "Dog," "I'm hungy," etc. Rarely do they quote Star Wars. When their parents do teach them to do so, however, the adorableness might just make the room explode. See for yourself. Not only can this kid imitate the sounds that tigers, cats, monkeys and robots make, but they can also quote Admiral Ackbar's most famous line. Congratulations, Anonymous Video Parents, you're kid is probably going to grow up awesome. The look of pride on the father's face speaks for itself. (via The Daily What)Read More
