The Half-Pound Reese's Cup: A Size Comparison

Sure, each cup's got 120g of sugar and 2250g of carbs, but I want it desperately. Here is its glorious size compared to a number of everyday objects.

Lunch Atop A Death Star During Construction

Artist Je hyung Lee put together this awesome homage to a certain classic New York photo. (Edit: I thought that was Darth Vader. It is not. I therefore have no issues with the photo. It's awesome.)

E.T. And Star Wars Exist In The Same Universe

[Update: Given that The Phantom Menace came out a long time ago, some people already knew this. If you are one of those people, please definitely leave a comment to indicate that. It would mean the world to me.] The Children Of The Green Planet who make a brief appearance in a Galactic Senate scene in The Phantom Menace are the same species as E.T.

I apologized."] Judge William Adams - an Aransas County, Texas, judge - is the focus of massive Internet rage after his daughter Hillary (who suffers from ataxic cerebral palsy) posted a video on YouTube of a vicious beating he apparently administered to her seven years ago. The graphic video was recorded during an altercation between the father and daughter over illegal downloading, and posted by her on Reddit yesterday in apparent retaliation for Adams' continued emotional abuse. Judge Adams has not as yet responded to the allegations, but you can read more about the story in the links below. Yikes.
