Today's Mighty Oak


Alright, let’s see what we have today.

I’m going to warn you about following the link in this article. ¬†The thinking of so backwards, and so full of logical fallacies that I almost got an aneurysm. ¬†Not to even mention the leaps of judgement and total void of logic. ¬†I think I may have already gotten a nosebleed.

It was a bad day for me, but this made me feel better:

So DC and Marvel own the copyright to the term “Superhero.” ¬†That’s weird.

So this of course is the big news of the day. ¬†Because it’s a man in one of the big four American sports. ¬†Yes, it’s a bit sexist, ethnocentric and rude to other professional sports, but based on reach alone, it’s a big deal. ¬†And here’s the fascinating (and heartfelt and touching) behind the scenes of the article.

In case you missed it, this is the cover of “Boston” Magazine, made from shoes from runners of the marathon:

Oh happy day, you can use your XBox Kinect to order Pizza Hut.

The summer movies coming up:

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Hey all, quick update for everyone before I head back to my novel (left than 9K to go!)

First up, my friend Patrick put together an awesome video around DC:

Sooooooo, this is strange. ¬†And what happens when there isn’t a separation of Church and State. ¬†Also, it’s kind of ridiculous the CoE still won’t allow women bishops. ¬†As we’ve said before, the penis is not a direct link to Jesus.

NPH has an awesome new show coming to Nerdist:

And if you’ve watched Crash Course World History (or even if you didn’t), here’s their second blooper reel:

That’s it for now, have a great one!



This Week in the Northeast takes a look at what’s going on in the Metblogs network in the northeast U.S. and Canada (while possibly taking some liberties with geography).

Frank takes a look at a hidden treasure of Montreal, the Redpath Museum:

When I reached the second floor, I was completely blown away.  It was like finding a hidden treasure.  A full natural history museum complete with a dinosaur skeleton.

Dhaval checks out a production of Exit the King in New York City:

Susan Sarandon’s fan club must have been in the audience because despite a lousy and monotonous delivery, she received the greatest praise. . . which leads me to believe that the matinee going public in NYC is hungrier for the stars than the actual content of what they go see.

And in Washington, D.C., Patrick discusses the many diseases currently floating about: measles and the swine flu:

Last week measles has been spreading around the area and the city has been working hard to keep it under control. So far it appears the best we could do is to direct it towards another state. I’m not a big fan of Missouri anyways.
