Misc. Nerdiness


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.

Ford has dipped into the “prankvertising” game this Halloween with a scary car wash prank designed to terrify their customers.

The plan clearly backfired however. Now the world knows that if you don’t want to be attacked by nightmare creatures, you should drive GM.

Tommy Chaos Stacey Danger

Were you disappointed in Transformers: Age of Extinction? Don’t worry, true believers! Director Michael Lukk Litwak and his talented team have brought us what we desperately needed: an award-winning romantic adventure film that features dinosaurs with frickin’ lasers on their heads. The movie is entitled The Life and Death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger and, according to its director, was “once described by a drunk person as ‘a cross between Blue Valentine and Jurassic Park.’ ”

Cute animals are popular and custom smartphone cases are popular. Naturally, someone on Twitter decided to combine these two things and uploaded a photo of what was creatively called a “bunny smartphone case.” The photo, posted above, was retweeted more than 37,000 times and has spawned a whole new meme.

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.

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.

one piece sword 1

Fans of the manga series One Piece can get excited because Toho Animation is working with sword makers (like you do) to create replica blades from the franchise. They’re made to order so you know they’ll be of the highest quality, but they cost almost $1,000 each. The craftsmen at Tozando are making replicas of the Sandai Kitetsu, Wado Ichimonji, Shusui, and Kikoku. The swords will be available to order at Amazon Japan.

See pictures of the sword replicas after the break.
