Things We Saw Today: Jar Jar Binks Travels to Improve Earth-Naboo Relations in My Gungan Travels
Jar Jar: International Binks of Mystery
Jar Jar Binks takes relations between Earth and Naboo very seriously, which is why he’s spent the past 16 years traveling all over our planet (he’s been to every continent except Antarctica! Seriously!) and chronicling his adventures on his blog, My Gungan Travels over at his website, In the Bink of an Eye. Check out his impressive photo gallery, and if you know of any Ewoks or Wookies who’ve been doing similar traveling, he wants them to contribute, too. Because Jar Jar is all about diversity.

- Um, we might be a step closer toward curing cancer! Scientists at the Mayo Clinic have figured out how to turn cancer cells back into benign cells! (via The Telegraph)
- Sci-fi has always been controversial, so this Sad Puppies thing is nothing new. After all, Ray Bradbury was considered a threat to national security by the FBI back in the day. (via io9)
- Are you team Captain America or Team Iron Man in Civil War? Inquiring minds over at Comic Book Resources wanna know! (PS – Captain America is in the lead…by a LOT)
- We’ve talked about the Bechdel-Wallace test. Now, there’s the Golden Retriever Test, the golden retrievers, of course, being the loyal, trusting, cooperative partners of a female lead. (via The Toast)
I can’t tell if I love, or really, really hate these Chewbacca crocs. Check out the rest of the images over at Toyland and decide for yourselves. What do you think?
And that’s all we saw today! What have we missed, loyal friends? What did YOU see today?
