While it’s nearly impossible to see the exact conditions under which galaxies formed, scientists can kinda sorta reproduce very similar conditions in the laboratory to better understand how dust and energy slowly turns into stars and planets and comets.
With Blackberry failing, RIM tries to appeal to kids for some reason
Blackberry used to be super hot shit til the iPhone and Android showed up and suddenly Research in Motion just couldn’t hack it. Shitty phones, a shitty OS, a shittier tablet. So what do you do when your once mighty company is on the ropes? Why not hire a graphic designer to create four ugly fucking superheroes to try and appeal to kids? Why the fuck not?
As if you thought Candyland was going to suck before... it's going to star Adam Sandler
Battleship is a stupid idea for a movie and Candyland is an even stupider idea. But how does one make sure you absolutely fuck up any hope Candyland had of even being appealing to infants? Cast Adam Sandler. Every time he screams “GIMME SOME CANDAY!”, you get to punch the person in front of you in the theater in the back of the head.

Someone has been watching too much TV: Sex, bomb, electrocution by cat all part of man's extortion plot.
Please don’t electrocute me.
While Florida seems to have a near lockdown on batshit crazy in the US, occasionally some crazy leaks out to other places such as Illinois, where a convict helped authorities unravel a bizarre murder for hire plot that involved carjacking, a stripper and electrocution by cat.
Poll of the Week: Who would make a good GOP VP candidate?
So I’ve been pretty slow on making new polls, but I’m sure you’ll get over it. Oh look, here’s a new one. It’s fun and topical. With the GOP race looking pretty much like a two man race between Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney at this point, who would make a good GOP VP pick?

The first test flight of the Orion rocket and capsule has been pushed back to 2014 from an original launch date of next year, which pushes any sort of manned flight in the new rocket to 2021. Well there goes Newt’s plans for a moon base by 2020.
Never before seen color photos of Hitler's posh crib
In these rarely seen color photos of Hitler’s office in Berlin, his apartment in Berlin and his Bavarian retreat, the Fuhrer had some expensive tastes. Not that you would expect anything less from someone who murdered millions to try and rule all of Europe.
I had this discussion planned for several days, and I was going to put Weasels Ripped My Flesh by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, and while I love that album cover, I got Die Antwoord’s new album, Ten$ion yesterday and been listening to it a lot in the past 24 hours and it just happens to have an awesome fucking cover. So as much as I love Zappa, I wanted to let you know that Ten$ion is out on iTunes if you want to grab it.
Anyway, enough about me… what are some of your favorite album covers?
Groundhog's Day is Thursday. I moved to the area in 2000 and I curse the day I did. People around here idolize this varmint and I can assure you, it is NOWHERE near like the movie. Western PA is an evil, racist, bigoted area. I plan on shutting myself in for the day. Any suggestions to occupy my time?
Kidnap the groundhog, drive your truck in front of a speeding train?

Director Matthew Vaughn and the X-Men: First Class stars sign up for a sequel. Awww yeah.
After several decent X-Men movies, X-Men: First Class turned out to be a hell of a recast prequel, racking up positive reviews and lots of money at the box office. So it’s not surprising that there will be a sequel, and that director Matthew Vaughn as well as actors Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence have signed on for First Class 2.
Mr. choasguy, did I dream last night about the hot cougar I met the night before? No. I dreamed of a pitcher full of donkey semen, so thank you, ass. Now, the only thing keeping me from putting a bounty on your head so big, that you'll never go near a civilized system again, is that it turned into a game show parody, in which the donkey semen was sprayed at contestants while doing showtunes, and those who didn't, were punished by 6 strait hours of racquet ball. So thank God for small miracles.
I think you’ve got a hit game show on your hands. All over your hands, dripping all over the floor.
Sandia National Labs are about to make self-guided bullets a reality
The idea of self-guided bullets has been around for a while now, and Sandia National Labs out in New Mexico is apparently pretty close to making them reality. Sure, it might take some skill out of sniping, but these guided bullets, capable of hitting a target over a mile away will make US snipers the most amazing god damn snipers ever.
Guy builds a huge Ewok village bed and breakfast in Oregon
"Ex-Green Beret medic Michael Garnier is an industry leader in treehouse construction, and put his skills to use decorating his property in Oregon with a series of interconnected treehouses resembling the Ewok Village from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The location is partially operated as a bed and breakfast “treesort”, which Fair Companies recently toured, along with Michael’s own 1800 sq ft treehouse that is supported by seven trees."
Legendary NYC club CBGB's is returning as both a club and a summer festival
In 2006, CBGB’s closed their doors after a hell of a run over thirty years. And now, there are rumors that the iconic club is shopping around Manhattan for a new, larger home. But that’s not the only news. According to the above poster that’s been leaked, it looks like CBGB’s will also be a summer music festival and a club. Well that fucking rocks.
A friend asked me to recommend a 'nice' movie. A 'nice' movie apparently is one that doesn't have profanity or violence and isn't pornographic but is a good, watchable movie that after watching it you think 'What a *nice* movie!'. Anyway, I found it harder than I thought it would be to recommend anything, and thought about suggesting Apollo 13, which is a great movie and meets the other criteria, but it's not a movie you finish seeing and say 'Gee, what a nice movie that was'. Help?
I’ve always been a fan of the old Disney live action movies from the 60s
