Article Definitive PROOF That Flappy Bird Is Stolen!

By Andrew Bridgman / February 8, 2014

Over the past week or so, the app Flappy Bird has exploded in popularity. It's practically all anyone talks about (when they're not tapping Flappy the Flappy Bird between the pipes of the Fushroom Kingdom that is!). But what if we told you that much of the game's art assets and gameplay were stolen?

See if you can spot what was stolen:

Article Who Should Have Actually Been Cast in Batman vs. Superman

By Andrew Bridgman / February 10, 2014

1. Lex Luthor: BRYAN CRANSTON

Who Should Have Actually Been Cast in Batman vs Superman

Bryan Cranston was long rumored for the part of Lex Luthor - the villainous antagonist to Superman. Despite the gravitas and sheer talent he would have brought to the role, they gave it to Jesse Eisenberg. Uh, we wanted HEISENBERG, Zack Snyder, not EISENBERG. Bryan Cranston has already proved he has the menacing glare, the acting ability, and the "looking cool with a shaved head"-ness that the role of Luthor requires.

 

2. Bruce Wayne / Batman: BRYAN CRANSTON

Who Should Have Actually Been Cast in Batman vs Superman

"I am the night"? Psh - try "I AM THE DANGER!" Bryan Cranston could act circles around Ben "Gigli" Affleck. Even when the two shared scenes in Argo, it became clear that Affleck was desperately out of his league next to the Cran-man. Bryan Cranston as Walter White was pretty much Batman already - the voice, the brutal doling out of justice, and - hell - he even had his own Robin in Jesse Pinkman. The true dark knight is Bryan Cranston.

Article Toplist Results: The 20 Greatest Fictional Detectives of All-Time

By Andrew Bridgman / February 6, 2014

Toplist Results: The 20 Greatest Fictional Detectives of AllTime

After over 400,000 votes, you (the voters) have solved the greatest mystery of all - who's the greatest fictional detective ever? You found the clues, questioned witnesses, planted evidence, threatened the jury...actually, you used some pretty underhanded methods. Regardless, you got results. And here they are - the 20 greatest fictional detectives of all-time!

 

20. Professor Layton

Toplist Results: The 20 Greatest Fictional Detectives of AllTime

While Professor Layton is, obviously, a professor (teaching Puzzology 101 at Why Does Everything Have To Be Puzzles??? University), the reality is that he's really a detective - solving mysteries and puzzles much more than setting office hours for his students. He's like Indiana Jones but if literally everyone Indy ran into made him steal a relic to answer the simplest questions. The top-hatted professor (along with his usual sidekick, Luke) spends his time running around Europe, solving mysteries through time and space, all while having a collar so popped they should call him Bro-fessor Layton.

Article Other Changes JK Rowling Wants To Make to Harry Potter

By Tony Wilson / February 4, 2014

Over the weekend, JK Rowling shocked the world when she revealed that Hermione Granger should have wound up with Harry Potter instead of Ron Weasley. We followed up with Ms. Rowling and found that this is but one of several changes she would want for the series. Here are some of her other revelations that we found most surprising:

"In my younger years, I erroneously believed that lightning was the coolest thing in the world. I now know that daggers are. They are so cool. I apologize for the pain this may cause some fans, but daggers are just so majorly wicked awesome."

Article Pwn Up: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

By Jake Young / February 3, 2014

This week on Pwn Up, we asked to hear about the "WTF Moments" that still leave you shaking your head. If you have a moment so nerdy that you need to tell the Internet about it, we want you to send your submissions to dorklypwnup at gmail 

 
In university I took a principles of law class which I really enjoyed. I put a lot of effort in studying for the endterm but I got an average grade. My professor offered me a lifeline in the form of a single oral exam that would boost my whole GPA if I did well enough. I had never taken an oral exam before in my life so I had no idea what to expect. I was extremely nervous. 
 
As she started asking me questions I was beginning to struggle and I could tell it wasn't going well. I wasn't going to get the high grade. Then she told me she had a young son who collected pokemon cards and he had recently been tricked because a kid traded a common card for one of his holo-rares. She asked me, "As a lawyer, how would you solve this dispute?"
 
 
Pwn Up: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
 
 
I was shocked, of all the things she could have asked about, Pokemon cards were my favorite things in the world at the time (and I still play today). I had encountered this situation myself where I traded my Geodude for a holo Machamp back in elementary school, tricking another kid, and had to subsequently return it after I was told off by the teacher and parents. Not to mention that I had witnessed many other situations like this. I began elaborating in extreme detail about all the possible options of going about the problem, both in the schoolyard among us kids, and with adults involved.
 
She was very impressed, and gave me a solid 8/10 for my oral exam.
That was definitely the strangest experience from my university days, the time Pokemon got me the best grade in the class that semester.

Article 5 Super Bowl Movie Trailers You Might Wanna See

By Andrew Bridgman / February 2, 2014

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Major takeaways:

  • "Metal arm?" Clearly a Jax/Mortal Kombat 3 rip-off.
  • That's Captain America comic scribe Ed Brubaker as the guy hangin' with a shirtless Winter Soldier
  • Characters on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. should feel VERY nervous about their employment prospects.
