Can Bill Nye control meteors? The Science Guy flew out of our office yesterday after discussing the need to fund space research. He says asteroids and meteors are the only types of natural disasters that humans can prevent.

Throwback to that time Bill Nye had the greatest exit from a TYT interview. 


Spanish retailer Zara was recently called out for selling a children’s shirt that looks way too much like concentration camp uniforms worn by prisoners during the Holocaust. The company has now pulled the shirts, but this isn’t the first time Zara has stepped out of line. In 2007, the company was criticized for selling a handbag design that featured swastikas.

DONALD GLOVER IS SPIDER-MAN AT LAST (IN DISNEY XD’S ANIMATED SPIDER-MAN SERIES)
By Andrew Wheeler

Doe anyone remember when Tim Burton was going to direct the movie “Superman Lives” with Nicolas Cage starring? It’s probably the weirdest rainbow hologram suit-wearing, depressed alien-like Kal-el version we’ve never seen.

Luckily, filmmaker Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse) has created a documentary — “The Death of ‘Superman Lives’; What Happened?” that features interviews with Burton, Cage, and the creative team. They all talk about the story they wanted to tell and what went wrong.
