Kitty Photoshop Tweakage Creates Battlecat
Cats are pretty cool. They are always up to something nefarious. Dogs are mostly too dumb to be sneaky; a cat on the other hand will do something bad and blame it on the dog. I wish cats could walk around on their hind legs, that would be awesome.

Scientists Sent a Direct Brain-to-Brain Message Via the Internet
Communication is a messy business. If it weren’t for miscommunication, Hiroshima and Nagasaki may well have never been bombed, the light brigade would have survived the Crimean War, the Korean war could have been averted, the Battle of Karansebes wouldn’t have been so much like an Adam Sandler movie, and the Mars Climate Orbiter would have completed its mission.

Lincoln Center LOTR Screenings to Have a Live Orchestra!

Darth Vader was a very serious guy. I can only imagine he would be more than willing to Force choke the crap out of someone for being late.
