Captain Olimar was never so happy as when he was training pikmin to protect their planet, but the life of an astronaut means travelling to different worlds so he soon made his way to Earth. There he found the plants were merely plants, and people were extremely hard to train and even harder to control, so it seemed that life would not be as fun as it had been with the pikmin. But then he discovered a strange world of evolving monsters that fit in your pocket and discovered that he too wanted to catch em all. Pocket monsters weren't quite as obedient as pikmin, and some weren't quite as cute, but the arena battles were glorious and made tiny Captain Olimar feel like a mighty big guy!

If you see any drunk and defective robots wandering around the old section of New New York they're probably one of Dr. Farnsworthstein's creations. He probably should have given up scientisting long ago, but his scientifical mindset refused to stop even when his brain malfunctioned and had to be replaced. Now he mostly creates bots that love to go on benders, one eyed mutant people who are both uptight and undateable, and little smarmy clones of himself so he never gets lonely in his lab. You could say Dr. Farnsworthstein is a crackpot, but then he'd inevitably crack a pot over your head!

The voyages of the Starship Enterprise are logged via stardates, and these seemingly insignificant set of numbers are meant to mark the episode's place in the series' timeline.
They sound like serious business, but how much thought and effort is put into continuity in the Star Trek series' in terms of stardates?
Well, as Chris Higgins of mental_floss discovered, the stardate system used in the original Star Trek series was "totally bogus" by design. Here's a snippet from the series bible:
Pick any combination of four numbers plus a percentage point [ed. note: tenths digit], use it as your story's stardate. For example, 1313.5 is twelve o'clock noon of one day and 1314.5 would be noon of the next day. Each percentage point is roughly equivalent to one-tenth of one day. The progression of stardates in your script should remain constant but don't worry about whether or not there is a progression from other scripts. Stardates are a mathematical formula which varies depending on location in the galaxy, velocity of travel, and other factors, can vary widely from episode to episode.
However, the writers and directors of Star Trek: The Next Generation were given an updated system that actually worked, and with the updated system we discover that one season of the show amounts to 1,000 days:
A stardate is a five-digit number followed by a decimal point and one more digit. Example: "41254.7." The first two digits of the stardate are always "41." The 4 stands for 24th century, the 1 indicates first season. The additional three leading digits will progress unevenly during the course of the season from 000 to 999. The digit following the decimal point is generally regarded as a day counter.
Of course they still goofed here and there, but that's a way better system than "pick four random numbers and a percentage point".
Ghosts are the luckiest of souls on Halloween night because they don't have to wear a costume to go out trick-or-treating, but at the same time they're stuck wearing that same white sheet getup for the rest of their afterlife! We bust them because we don't understand them, but maybe if we took a moment to think about what it must be like to wear the same thing day in and day out we wouldn't be so hard on our spectral neighbors. This Halloween we should be happy that we're allowed to wear whatever the heck we want, and if you run into a ghost while you're out on the town make sure you give them an air hug and let them know you're aware of their struggle!

But like all mighty empires Pugsy's canine criminal cabal was about to draw to a close, because there was a new top dog in town, a sneaky Schnnauzer by the name of Bigby.

Disco was long dead, and the power had run out on Techno too, so what did the future hold for electronic music? As it turns out the Droids knew all along, and they were just waiting for the right time to drop a beat and take over the music industry.

Somewhere on the edge of physical reality lies a zone where things become quite confused, with life and death coexisting with the cosmos in a space not bound by the laws of physics. These areas have become known as dead zones, because things go in alive but don't come out again, and for every dead zone there's a gatekeeper. It is their responsibility to keep the living and the dead from upsetting the balance of nature, and although they let living things in it is of vital importance that nothing comes out lest the balance be upset and all of time and space go spiraling out of control...

They brought the power and the pain to Bartertown, but the duo known as Master Blaster were only as good as the little man with the big mouth in Blaster's backpack, meaning Master was good as dead when left alone. But together they were a thing of brutal beauty, two powerful men working as one to keep Aunty Entity in her place and remind the people who run Bartertown. Max saw something admirable in the way they worked together, and the kind way which Master took care of feeble minded Blaster when they were outside Thunderdome, but in the end the high profile duo got under Aunty's skin, which was a big mistake...

If basic cable movies have taught us anything about sex it's that the whole situation is either incredibly fantastic or incredibly awkward.
Things happen so quickly, with so many fast cuts your eyes can't seem to focus on one part of the body for long, that we are left wondering whether we should feel turned on or nauseous.
But some of these less-than-R-rated moves could be quite handy in real life, like a smash cut to the morning after when you're not enjoying the horrorshow going on in your bed, or leaving a bra on because support.
As a kid we're taught musical notes with a song about a needle pulling thread and a deer, a female deer, and these sing song syllables can be put together into a song that sounds good but doesn't really make much sense.
Hawaii-based Reggae musician Mike Love took the concept of stringing random syllables together and, with a little help from a sampler pedal, created something quite masterful- a song that sounds random at first but all comes together in the end.
It's easy to forget that alcohol ruins lives when you're out drinking and having a good time, and the more drinks you've had the easier it is to act like an inconsiderate jerk towards those struggling with alcoholism.
Of course, if that struggling someone is hanging out in a bar or club then act as you will, but if your friends are staying sober at someone's house then you should show them you respect their sobriety.
Here are some of the dumbest things you can say to someone choosing to stay sober:
17. "Your not drinking makes it hard for me to relate to you." Try to get to know me, and I'm pretty sure you'd relate somewhere.
18. "You must have so much dirt on everyone, watching us sober." Of course, my favorite hobby is to collect blackmail and is the sole reason I don't drink. Actually, I'm not judging. Please stop judging me.
19. "You must be so against this stuff." Just because I don't want to have a drink doesn't means I'm against alcohol entirely and think it's the worst thing. It's wonderful for people who enjoy it. I just happen not to.
20. "I don't drink that much usually! Really!" You don't have to justify your drinking to me just because I'm not.
Most borders simply didn't exist before mankind claimed the land for their own, drawing lines to divide up and control sections of the earth, so it's not surprising that many of man's borders are unnecessarily complicated.
Borders create enclaves when a country is surrounded by another country, they create enmity when armed guards patrol the border, and they ultimately create confusion when people can't figure out in which country their feet lie.
WonderWhy has created a two part video series that explores the wild and wacky world of complex international borders, it's enough to make you want to declare a treaty just so you don't have to figure it all out!
A person possessed by evil is like a scorpion- not that dangerous when they're left alone, but if you make them angry they're liable to sting you until you're dead. If you come across a lady named Vanessa Ives on the dark city streets you'd best steer clear of her, averting your eyes so as not to draw her attention, because if she gets too close to you her inner demons will surely swallow you up and leave you in a pool of blood and misery...
