Things We Saw Today: This 11-Year-Old Girl Built Herself a Sparkle-Shooting Prosthetic



11-year-old Jordan Reeves was born with a limb difference: her left arm stops just above her elbow. But that hasn’t stopped her from inventing and 3D-printing like a champ. She’s created a bunch of cool tools to help other kids with only one limb–including one prosthetic that looks like a unicorn horn and shoots sparkles. She is everything pure and good in this world. (Via CNN)

  • As part of his ongoing commitment to being The Worst That Liberalism Has to Offer, Bill Maher invited neo-Nazi troll Milo Yiannopoulos on his show. The “conversation,” as expected, was a frustrating trash heap of logical fallacies and bigotry. Maher said doxxing trans students was “not unreasonable.” Milo called Leslie Jones “barely literate.” But then Larry Wilmore, shining light in this foul pit, told Milo, “Go fuck yourself”–twice. So say we all, Larry. Aaaaand that’s all the publicity I’m going to give this fame-hungry hatemonger and his enabler. (Via The Daily Beast)
  • Despite earlier reports that he was “already committed” to the project, Matt Reeves will not direct The Batman. Ben Affleck, who is still the movie’s star, was originally slated to direct, but he announced that he would pass the role to someone else in order to focus on his performance. (via Collider)
  • We finally got a look at Kurt Russell’s Ego the Living Planet from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He hasn’t appeared in any of the trailers so far, but the new action figure from Hasbro’s Marvel Legends series gives us an idea of his getup. (Via io9)
  • Warner Brothers uploaded a pair of new Kong: Skull Island clips. In “Monster Battle,” you can see Kong smash a Skull Crawler monster; in “Monsters Exist,” you can watch John Goodman go full-on conspiracy theorist. (Via Collider)
