This is rather expensive for a USB car charging station, but could it be any cuter? The R2D2 USB Car Charger from ThinkGeek sits beside you in a drink holder; his arms adjust so that he will fit in most holders. Plug him into your car’s power outlet, and he’ll be able to charge two devices simultaneously in his two 2.1A USB jacks. He’s only 5.5″ tall and 3.5″ wide at the widest point; he has a 2″ diameter base to fit in a cup holder and a 36″ long cable to reach the power outlet. He’s cute enough just sitting there, but ThinkGeek upped the cuteness factor with a lighted, rotating dome and by making him beep and whistle when your attached device begins to charge – or you can press a button to animate him anytime you want to converse with him. R2D2 is $49.99 and is available exclusively from ThinkGeek. (I’m not the most devoted Star Wars fan, but I’m dying for an R2D2 USB charger for my car. My passengers can just hold their own drinks!)
This isn't even his final form.
Note: Thomas Fummo returns to the site today, taking on an overlooked character from Marvel lore — Frog-Man. Originally designed by the monster artist Kerry Gammill, Frog-Man was typecast as a joke due to his costume looking too much like a frog but Fummo has updated the character into something that — while still a bit wacky — looks a bit more functional. Marvel, Frog-Man is ready for his moment in the sun. – Chris A.
So, so great.
A couple of comics about Edward, the Black Prince. I love that a man who was brutal in many ways was celebrated as "the Flower of English Chivalry" even into the 1900s. That's from a towering statue in Leeds, where I am headed for this year's Thought Bubble Festival! Love Leeds, love Thought Bubble, love the Black Prince, love his statue. I admit that last year I was proud of myself for identifying the figure from afar - it's all that bullet shaped armour around his head (amiright), a style we all wish would come back.
Also, glory be! New shirts! I am so glad to be stocking the store with new things. The Venus one is not in yet, but coming, but head on over to check out the rest. Deck yourselves in them, deck your friends, deck whoever! Just click the link:
Pacific Rim is currently marked $29.58 at JB, reduced to $23.66 with their current 20% sale.
The hard drive sat in a drawer for three years until information technology specialist James Howells decided to toss it out about three months ago.
Now the Englishman is diving through trash to find it after he realized he forgot to remove 7,500 Bitcoins, a digital currency. With Bitcoin hitting $1,000 earlier this week, that hard drive would now be worth more than $7.5 million.

Robb Stark, King in the North, faces major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters, and beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen – reunited with her three fast-maturing dragons – attempts to raise an army to sail with her from Essos, in hopes of eventually claiming the Iron Throne for herself.

YES I can finally get a Brienne to accompany my Jaime & Arya figures.
Hey guys, I got you a nightmare.
Uniquely among cephalopods, the arms and tentacles were of the same length and looked identical (like extinct belemnites). The appendages were also held perpendicular to the body, creating the appearance of strange "elbows". Most remarkable was the length of the elastic tentacles, which has been estimated at stretching up to 15–20 times the mantle length. Estimates based on video evidence put the total length of the largest specimens at 8 metres (26 ft) or more.Via.
