Article Most WTF Harry Potter Fan Fiction Titles

By Chloe Cole / February 19, 2014

After J.K. Rowling validated Harmony (Harry/Hermione) fans' deepest desires, it now feels like anything is possible in the Harry Potter fandom. Harry and Draco are totally in love, right? And Harry and Dobby, too. Until J.K. Rowling confirms these ships, enjoy these disturbing fan fiction titles!

Top 10 Gifts For The Nerd In Your Life

Nothing says "nerd" like having your nose buried in a book, so buy your nerdy friend one of these paper facemasks. It's hard to go wrong: there are so many books out there that even the biggest nerds haven't read all of them.

 

Top 10 Gifts For The Nerd In Your Life

Whether your friend is a comic book nerd or a film nerd, BluRay offers The Wolverine AND that movie that Harmony Korine made by living with a group of transient homeless vandals for a couple of weeks, both in gorgeous 1080p.

Article The Most Insane FCC Complaints Against 'South Park'

By Andrew Bridgman / March 18, 2014

FCC Complaints Against South Park That Will ENRAGE YOU

The website Government Attic regularly posts government files and documents it receives through the Freedom of Information Act. While most of these are extremely dry and boring, occasionally something truly magnificent will show up. For example - a document was posted that collected complaints made to the FCC about South Park, between 2004 and 2007. We've transcribed some of the best ones (and tried our best to maintain accurate portrayals of the grammar and spelling used by each):

 


 

Two boys well known to me asked me for sex (unspecified in nature); when I asked these boys why they were asking me for sex, they replied that the TV program "South Park" with the randy "Chef" told them to do it. These boys are 9 and 12. I am 63 and male.


 

I wish to voice my disgust with the "cartoon" Southpark that was aired on the evening of Wednesday, August 10, 2005. The episode depicted children "milking" a male dog. I cannot believe such filth is allowed to be aired.

Article 5 Reasons The Non-Superpowered Superhero Thing Is Bullshit

By Jason Iannone / April 18, 2014

Some of our most popular superheroes aren't super at all: they weren't born with special powers, never gained powers via some freak accident, and must rely completely on ingenuity and hard work to succeed. They're just like us!

Except...they absolutely aren't. The "superhero without superpowers" deal sounds nice, until you realize that every single one of them is naturally leveled up to the point where they become superpowered by default. No actual human could possess or accomplish what these people do, so the implication that these people are powerless, yet still super somehow, is pure bullshit.

So what amazing powers does your favorite non-powered hero possess? 100% of the time, they'll boast one or more of the following ...

 

1. Endless, Obscene Wealth

 

5 Reasons The NonSuperpowered Superhero Thing Is Bullshit

 

It's generally accepted that non-powered heroes need oodles of cash to make their violent hobby work. But even the richest of the rich have limits to their wealth; only about a hundred people on Earth have more than $10 billion in the piggy bank, after all. If anyone else were to spend money recklessly on some super-secret hero lifestyle, they'd be broke before they knew it. Even the super-rich would have trouble balancing their checkbook after a while, and once they start having to gather dimes to buy a Big Mac, they'd probably reconsider blowing another $15,000,000 on a camouflaging fighter jet.

But people like Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark do not have this problem. Not only are they ludicrously rich, but they stay ludicrously rich, and actually get ludicrously richer despite blowing untold amounts of cash on everything-proof armor, vehicles more powerful than every military tank on the planet combined, elaborate hideaways that are more difficult to access than Disney's Club 33, high-tech weapons, computers that can do literally anything, and sky-high medical bills.

Are they ever even hurting for money one teensy tiny bit? Of course not! Their businesses never fail (and if they do, they quickly come bck and their fortunes remain as mysteriously limitless as ever.) They have the power to piss money away and, as anyone who has struggled to keep the lights on or put food on the table can tell you, that might be the greatest superpower of all.

Article Pwn Up: A Very Special Pwn Up (Love Edition)

By Andrew Bridgman / July 30, 2013

Every now and then, we get such a great and thorough story submitted to us, that we have absolutely no choice but to run it as its own very special edition of Pwn Up. This is one of those times.

This weekend I attended PAX Australia with my girlfriend. I may be the only Australian to have attended the very first PAX in 2004, and the expo holds a special place in my heart. I had also been looking for a good way to pop the question, so as soon as PAX Aust was announced, I began conjuring an elaborate plan. It began with giving my girlfriend a mysterious envelope several months ago, that she must keep with her at all times in case the time comes to open it…

Article The Animal Crossing Villager Is Your Worst Nightmare

By Staff / June 14, 2013

At their Nintendo Direct conference at E3, Nintendo made a few announcements about Mario, Donkey Kong, and a number of other franchises. But none of that matters. The only thing that matters is that the Animal Crossing Villager will be a playable character in the newest Smash Bros. games. But there's something unsettling about his smiling, always content face that never changes, even as he's beating other mascots mercilessly…

All of his letters to his neighbors are written in the blood of his victims.
