Even if you aren't a Game of Thrones fan, you may like this short clip of the show edited with a laugh track to make it Seinfeld-esque. All you really need to know is that Game of Thrones is a brutal drama, which makes the juxtaposition that much better. (I thought the Ned / Littlefinger / Cat scene turned out particularly well).

NASA image shows Pac-Man on Saturn's moon. Silly and cool. (Thanks Holly!)

Scandal or rightfully so? And former Oxford English Dictionary editor covertly deleted thousands of words. "Efforts to rewrite the dictionary in the 70s and 80s to omit entries with foreign origins described as 'really shocking.'" Tricky though, since English is such an amalgam …

The context for this link is this: a guy on Reddit shared how he searches for people with his same name on Facebook, then changes his own profile picture to an imitation of theirs. Apparently the most typical response is confused fright and a quick changing of the original picture(!)

Shameless plug: I just watched Star Wars for the first time and wrote about it (and did a podcast!). The link goes to the final article, but there are links to each piece of series at the very start. Now I can finally get all of the references … "It's a trap!"
