Lord of the Rings Mythology Explained!



Finally! It makes sense! So wait... what was Sauron? Checkout this great video from C. P. G. Grey on Youtube which finally breaks down all the various races of Lord of the Rings. My fear of attempting confusing book with a thousand names that all sound the same, The Silmarillion, is somewhat assuaged. Somewhat.

A Real Batsuit?



I just learned that there is an industrial design student at Philadelphia University who is planning to build a functional suit of combat armor based on Bathman via Kickstarter funds. How. Amazing. Check him out!

“It’s important to stress that this is not a costume, but rather an actual fully functioning replication of what a person would want in a modern type combat suit. This suit is not being designed to take on gunfire, as that would cost exponentially more and is above my skill set, but rather towards hand to hand combat and weapon defense against bats, knifes, and other club like objects.”

So I took the "What's Your Reading Personality" test, and I am "The Aesthete." Which basically means I read classic books and don't like happy endings. Oh dear!

Tell me what type of reader you are in the comments!

If ever you are at a loss for words in a verbal sparring match, never fear! Shakespeare has got your back! Here is a poster of categorized insults penned by the Bard himself. You're welcome.

From the website: "A tribute to Shakespeare's dagger-like wit, featuring 100 of his greatest insults, categorized by topic. This array of verbal swordplay includes classics like, "I was seeking for a fool when I found you", and "More of your conversation would infect my brain". Each print is signed and numbered by the artist. Made with 100lb. recycled, archival quality, FSC certified paper and vegetable inks, these prints are offset lithograph pressed in the town of Mukilteo, Washington."'
