Angry Birds Star Wars

The popular game Angry Birds is releasing a new Star Wars game on November 8th. While the official gameplay trailer isn’t coming out until the 5th, you can see a preview of the game above!

11 Toys Worth More Than My Car

I drive a 2000 Hyundai Elantra with its factory original tape deck. It’s in “fair” shape — low miles but a lotta dents. MSRP for this thing was about $12,000, and Blue Book value is now around $3,500. Let’s take a look at some literal children’s toys that cost more than my [...]

Star Wars Superfun Update

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Tauntaun

This is what the Empire Strikes Back would have looked like if it was released by stop motion animation pioneers Rankin Bass. The only thing I don’t like about this illustration is the thought of Rudolph the Tauntaun getting gutted by Hermey/Luke Skywalker and used as a meat sleeping bag, but at least he comes [...]

The Planet with Two Suns

Astronomers studying exoplanets have found one with a very odd system. It orbits two stars! There have been planets discovered that orbit one of two binary stars, or that orbit a star and a burned-out star, but this one actually orbits around two real stars. The planet is named Kepler-16, meaning it was discovered by [...]
