Smuggling! Cloning! Pumpkin theft! Chunkin' is a lot weirder than we thought.
Science Channel is airing their annual Punkin Chunkin special Thanksgiving night at 8:00PM ET. If you're not familiar with it, it's a show about people who build machines that hurl pumpkins as far as possible -- some nearly a mile. It's a fun look at physics and engineering, but we went to event this year and found it was actually a whole lot more.Read More

Watch This Guy Apply For A Job On Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Show With A Film Featuring His Design Work
Lots of people want in on Joss Whedon's upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. television show on ABC but perhaps none more than Adam Levermore. He created a short comedy film to act as his resume for production designer on the Avengers spin-off series. And they should really hire him. I mean, besides the fact he pulled this together in two and a half weeks, it's the eye for detail. "Everything that isn’t part of the building or being worn by the actors was my design work, and I think it really shows what I can do to bring a unified, coherent feel to a fictional world," he writes. Of course it does help Levermore to have Mythbusters' Grant Imahara playing himself and Whedon cohort Amber Benson in the mix. The short also stars Taryn O’Neill, Stephanie Thorpe, Andrew Seely, and Yuri Lowenthal. Seriously, give the guy the job already or let him in for an interview at the very least Oh, I forgot, it was written by Amy Berg and there's also a Bear McCreary score. I mean, come on!

It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

On last night's Late Late Show, Craig Ferguson fans finally got the payoff they've long been waiting for in the form of Geoff Peterson, the robot sidekick that Mythbuster Grant Imahara agreed to build Ferguson if he could amass more than 100,000 Twitter followers. (It happened very, very quickly.)
Geoff Peterson's robotic powers include laughing at any joke Ferguson tells at the push of a button, shooting off catchphrases, and, well, being a robot skeleton.
As jocular a pursuit as robot skeleton-building might seem, Imahara took the challenge of building Geoff Peterson quite seriously:Read More
