Don't forget: that foot-shaped carrot tastes just as good as the “normal” one!
Until now, I’ve never thought about how strange it was that one of the most popular children’s toys of all-time is a man with a potato for a head. Pretty strange, right? Mr. Potato Head, while best known for his snarky role in the Toy Story franchise, was first manufactured back in 1952. Soon afterwards, he would become the first toy ever advertised on television. Until 1964, the curio was marketed as a bundle of plastic parts and pushpins that c...

Doggone it, it's Game of Bones!
There are few things we love in this world more than Game of Thrones—outside of slightly inappropriate and innuendo-laced headlines—but one of those things is definitely puppies. Especially puppies that get dressed up and recreate our favorite TV series—which is exactly what cutie pooch Crusoe the Dachshund did in honor of the sixth season of the HBO fantasy series. And despite all the ruff puns we could make right now, doggone it, we're just goi...

Straight from the showrunners' mouths, Game of Thrones fans.
The night is dark and full of, well, far fewer episodes of HBO's Game of Thrones than we would selfishly like. In a new interview, co-creators and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have confirmed what has recently been rumored to be the case: we're only getting a total of 73 - 75 hours of A Song of Ice and Fire. And with (roughly) 60 of those hours already claimed, we're talking 13 to 15 more episodes of the TV show, tops. Cue an entire wor...

Start here, then scale it up over 200 times.
Before a recent "rapid unscheduled disassembly," Elon Musk and his commercial spaceflight company SpaceX had a string of successful landings on a floating drone barge. The purpose of these landings was to prove that the first stages of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets could be recovered from just about any location on Earth and eventually reused. Doing so would dramatically reduce the cost of getting stuff into space. So far, it looks like that dream is...

Warning: DO NOT wear weird sunglasses over this.
Scott Summers, or the mutant known as Cyclops, fires beams of pure energy from his eyes. The true source of his power however, comes from apertures into another dimension that only ruby-quarts sunglasses can stop. Since that's crazy and impossible, the only way to make yourself like Cyclops is to invent something just as bizarre, you know, like a welder's mask that shoots fire from your face. In the video above, Allen Pan, the same inventor who ...

Cyclops' beams are not heat related at all, they are concussive

♪♫ With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue... ♪♫
It's normal to covet your neighbor's hair. It's not normal to go ahead and snatch it right off their head. While that's not exactly what happened this past week in an auction, it does offer up an image of how badly a person wanted David Bowie's hair that he went ahead and bought it for over $18,000. In less creepy music news, a handful of artists performed tributes to Prince at the BET Awards, Billy Joel did a surprise set with a cover band, Kany...

We're kind of hoping the new Jason Bourne movie takes a page out of this book.
When Danger is your middle name, life isn't always swinging and parties. Not when you're one of the greatest spies alive and the fate of the free world, and of those you love, rests in your hands. This fan-made trailer, which we first came across at EW, was edited together by Ryan Shukis, whose YouTube channel is full of these fun, re-cut, reimagined trailers (we told you in February about his modern trailer for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Fact...

Game of Thrones season 6 finale was formulaic storytelling in the best way possible.

http://nerdi.st/28ZC7BC
Don't feel pedestrian for enjoying what Game of Thrones just did in its season 6 finale, "The Winds of Winter." Narratives need balance, and we've been through some shit. Editor's note: This post contains spoilers for the Game of Thrones season 6 finale, so proceed at your own peril. To George R.R. Martin's credit, this story's biggest strength is its author's stated goal: to restore threat to narrative stakes. As he explained, nobody feels dange...

Our Star Trek suggestion of "Handsome Guy Universe" was rejected.
Following the 10th Star Trek movie--2002's beyond bleak Star Trek: Nemesis--the perennial Paramount Pictures franchise needed a fresh set of eyes, some new ideas, and a new cast. For better or worse, the J.J. Abrams 2009 film did those things and turned back the clock on Trek's timeline without re-writing what had come before. In fact, they made their own splinter universe and timeline to ensure nothing that came before was negated. But what do w...

Game of Thrones has been, continues to be, and always will be brutal.
"I am not really into fantasy, so I am not sure I will really like Game Of Thrones" - Me, an idiot, 6 years ago when someone suggested a new HBO show to me. "AIUDHASIDUAIUSHDIASUDHIFBKJASFKBJASFBKH" - Me, still an idiot, last night after watching the action-packed season finale of one of my favorite shows of all time. My oh my, how things have changed since Jaime Lannister gave Bran Stark a little push from a window in Winterfell. Six seasons lat...

We're breaking down everything you may have missed in that EPIC Game of Thrones finale.
Today's entire Nerdist News will be devoted to last night's epic Game of Thrones finale "The Winds of Winter" so if you're still living in a magical universe episodes ago with Hodor, turn back now, because we're spoiling the whole thing! Winter is HERE and boy is it action-packed. Last night's extended episode showed us Dany on her way to Westeros, Cersei taking her place on the Iron Throne, Jon Snow: King of the North, and King's Landing doused ...

After that finale, we've got some questions, Game of Thrones.
Editor's Note: This post contains potential spoilers for season seven of Game of Thrones and DEFINITE ones for the past six of the show thus far. Don't read on if you don't want to know things, mmkay Jon Snow? It's felt like the longest autumn on record, but winter is finally here. And oh, what a brilliant turn of events went down in Game of Thrones' epic season six finale, "The Winds of Winter." We got questions answered and storylines coalesced...
