Westworld and Facebook have a lot in common. They were both created by enigmatic and narcissistic visionaries. Each offers virtual fantasy where your actions seemingly have little to no consequences, and each features conflicted automatons following a script they know nothing about... http://thenyrd.com/facebook/

According to the CDC, in 2013 suicide was the second leading cause of death in Americans from ages 15 to 34. Bullying is a problem, however it does not delegitimize the argument for gun control. After all, do you know how many students die annually from firearms, according to the CDC? The answer is that we do not know, because the CDC is discouraged by those in power from keeping statistics on gun related injuries and death. http://thenyrd.com/students-protest/

O’ Skjold Pige, maiden of flaxen hair and of iron heart, wielder of Longbrand, slayer of Firben the Dragon, Hawk-Talker, and the tamer of Ulv Linjal the Wilder King. Such as it were, she was mother of raiders and matron of heroes. Of Pige Iron Heart her birth, her life, her death I sing... Read On: http://thenyrd.com/dragon-slayer/

Wait… When did the last Seinfeld episode air? 1998?… Okay, so we’re about 20 years late with this one, (but that’s the way the black and white cookie crumbles.) You see, we have a theory we can't just get out of our heads... What if everyone’s favorite foursome of horrible people, Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer are actually dead and facing a hell of their own making. http://thenyrd.com/seinfeld-theory/

Donald Trump's rhetoric echos that of the America First Committee, which probably sounds like a club that promotes making sure the United States is always listed as 'America' in online forms, because they are sick of scrolling all the way down to the U’s… but it was actually a bit more anti-Semitic than that. http://thenyrd.com/america-first/

We are nerds. That does not mean that we don't understand football, or hockey, or baseball, or badminton, just that we don't really care.

Congressman Jim Bridenstine will be the new face of NASA. He was a Navy combat pilot and the executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium… yes, "The" Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium. He is a big space advocate, with a real focus on commercial space enterprises, and also denies the existence of man made climate change... so yeah... http://thenyrd.com/nasa-administrator/

We don’t want you to see this tale as some sort of veiled reflection on our current commander-in-chief. After all, President Lex Luthor was a supervillain, who put his name on buildings, committed multiple federal offenses, colluded with known enemies, and was obsessed with destroying only one or two reporters from the Daily Planet… http://thenyrd.com/president-luthor/

Disney's recent merger with Fox Studios has opened up a lot of possibilities, and among the many properties that the House of Mouse now owns, there is Firefly. Should Disney revive the cult classic? We say no, and here is why. http://thenyrd.com/no-firefly-revival/

We love Oprah, and part of us would relish four years of book recommendations, inspirational stories, questionable medical advice, and the occasional free car, but we should consider what a campaign by her or any other celebrity would mean for the highest office in our land. http://thenyrd.com/celebrities-and-presidency/
