A flan-obsessed astronaut named Dave and his new partner, a highly intelligent seedless melon, head to Mars in Black Holes, an irreverent (and mildly NSFW) 3D animated short. Its makers, Noodles Studio, hope to develop the story into an adult animated sitcom via a just-launched Kickstarter.
The debate over building a wall on the border between the United States and Mexico has generally been ridiculous. But one congressman tells CNN that we should consider a dangerous possibility: weak borders open us up to nuclear weapons being smuggled in disguised as harmless bales of weed.
In a conference call to discuss Tesla’s fourth-quarter results on Wednesday, the automaker’s co-founder, billionaire and aspirational Martian Elon Musk continued to push back on reports of an ongoing unionization effort at the company’s California factory.

You’re a movie executive. A writer walks into your office and says two words. Those words are “underwater Armageddon.” How fast do you write the check? Minutes? Seconds? Less?
One of the biggest reasons Pebble was a damn fine smartwatch was its entirely reasonable price. Back in December, the Kickstarter success story sold off its assets to Fitbit and was promptly shut down. Today, we learned how much it was sold for and it seems those low, low prices continued into its demise.

Wonder Woman wasn’t always a member of DC’s holy trinity of superheroes. She was just another hero in the DC lineup.

It says in fine print that the sitewide $8.63 discount from Amazon doesn’t work on Amazon.com gift cards, but here’s a little loophole. Pick up this $25 Starbucks gift card/$25 Amazon gift card bundle, and use BIGTHANKS at checkout and the discount will work. Shout out to GuardianMiria for the heads up.

When I first started Horizon: Zero Dawn, I didn’t think Guerrilla Games’ version of a post-apocalypse saga was going to pull me in. Twenty hours later, I can’t stop hunting—and getting wrecked by—robot animals. It’s a very good video game with a chilling, scifi vision of the far-future at its core.
