The second series of World of Warcraft toys from Funko are once again so cute that you’ll be immediately emptying your wallet and giving them all your money. Murloc, Thrall, Sylvanas, and a larger 6″ Deathwing look too adorable to hurt a soul. They’re available for pre-order now with shipping slated for next month.

It’s nothing new to hear tales of how gamer girls are treated with a bad attitude by certain gamer guys. You know, the ones who don’t think girls can really game, or that we don’t really know anything about games? Yeah, those guys. This video turns the tables and imagines what it would be like if the girls had that know-it-all attitude and the guys were the ones constantly being told they’re just not up to par.

game

Tall Card was featured in the fourth episode of Firefly, but despite being shown on-screen, it never had any actual rules. Undaunted, Toy Vault is releasing a version of the game this coming February. It will have 45 cards including the round ones with the plum that made Simon lose the game on the show. There will also be an extra 50 cards that will let you create your own Firefly-themed games to pass those long nights cruising through the Black.

This absolutely beautiful video shows what it would be like to hold the power to build an entire universe in the palm of your hands. Ambition is a short film made by Academy Award-nominated director Tomek Baginksi along with the European Space Agency.

It was made in Poland, shot on location in Iceland, and just had its first screening at the British Film Institute’s celebration of Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder in London. Although it centers on the Rosetta comet mission, it’s a stirring tribute to space exploration and its importance to the search for our origins as humans.

LeVar Burton is widely known for encouraging kids to read on the series Reading Rainbow. This time, he’s reading the definitely not kid friendly Go The F*ck to Sleep and it might be one of the most entertaining book readings he’s ever done. It all happened during Rooster Teeth’s Extra Life 2014 live stream and it’s just brilliant as he reads the whole thing just like he’s reading to a group of kids.

There are lawyers who help you with a medical malpractice case, and then there are the lawyers who help you when you’ve been sliced up by the sword of Methuselah. If the later is your problem, then you’ll want to hire Parish & Cipher from the television series “Sleepy Hollow” to handle your case.

This fun video spoofs all those ads for lawyers we see on television. The list of cases they handle is brilliant. Hallucinating demons in the woods? Attacked by faceless nightmare man? They’ve got you covered.

See the video after the break and make sure to read the entire case list.

hobbit safety video

It’s been awhile since Air New Zealand released it’s fantastic Hobbit-themed in-flight safety video. With the release of the final film in The Hobbit trilogy, the time was ripe to make a new one so they’ve created what they’re billing as, “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.” It features all the usual safety tips, but it also has cameos by the actors from the film in one of the few safety videos that everyone will actually watch and enjoy.

You guys, this Super Mario World script is really, really bad. Even Max Landis admits it’s horrible. He wrote the script when he was just 19, but he had the cojones to post it on his site (which you have to admire) along with a foreword detailing the script’s many issues. Let’s start with it being a whopping 435 pages long and that it contains a ridiculous character list that includes Banjo and Kazooie. This is definitely in “so bad it’s good” territory.

Read Landis’s forward after the break.

princess

We’ve already seen how the Disney princes wouldn’t be the best guys to date, and now here’s why you don’t want to date (or be friends with) the princesses either. They are completely obsessed with their own little worlds and will likely make that crazy roommate you had that one time totally sane in comparison.
