Some interesting bits and news from the Internet:
Mindy at Skepchick ponders the science of Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Starkiller base.
And speaking of Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Starkiller base, blogger Matty Granger fisks and debunks a really obnoxious article in the Huffington Post about plot holes in the movie. Not that there weren’t any plot holes in the movie, but I agree with Granger that there’s a big difference between inattention and actual plot holes. Plus, it’s just a fun piece if you’re a Star Wars fan.
An announcement that Vanessa Hudgens will headline a new DC Comics sitcom. Which sounds like an interesting experiment.
The New York Times digs out a business piece from 1985 expressing that laptops and mobile computers is going to be a limited market, just to show that tech prediction is frequently not very predictive about how we’ll use tech.
Author Kevin Hearne gets author Ursula Vernon to do her rant about the potato apocalypse on Twitter.
An interesting experiment based on the Harry Potter world, though she seems to have cheated a good bit.
A rundown on everything you need to know about upcoming Disney movies. (The Mouse will not be stopped!)
