Stephen Colbert has something to say to all of the scruffy-looking nerfherders who insist that the crossguard lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is impractical: he's been a Star Wars fan a whole two weeks longer than the rest of us and he's using his knowledge to school us on lightsaber design.

Sally Ride, America's first female astronaut, passed away a little over two years ago. This past Thursday, Lynn Sherr – Ride's friend, and author of the recently published biography on the late astronaut – stopped by the Colbert Report to talk about Ride's role as a feminist, scientist, and role model.
Thursday night's episode of The Colbert Report included a pretty lengthy interview with multi-industry mad scientist Elon Musk. Missed it because you were asleep (old fart) or don't own a TV (commie)? Don't sweat, we've got you covered.

As you may already know, just last week, Google officially announced its purchase of scary robot aficionado Boston Dynamics.

On Tuesday, we reported on the new comic character Kamala Khan, a teenage Muslim who is taking the moniker of Ms. Marvel in her own self-titled comic due out next February. The Colbert Report's Stephen Colbert recognized this for the attack on America that it is, and reported it accordingly.
There are way too many Bill Clinton parody accounts on Twitter, but believe it or not, the 42nd president hasn't had his own handle. Until recently when Stephen Colbert made one for him. His username? @PrezBillyJeff because every other viable option was already taken.
There's no way hardcore Tolkien fanboy Stephen Colbert was going to let the upcoming premiere of The Hobbit go without notice, but I think this goes a touch beyond just "noticing" it.

Joy comes from the abuse of fetishized gadgets, especially when they start with the letter "i". When it's one of the most terrific people on TV doing it, well just watch.
