14 hours agoOdd : Geekosystem

We all know San Diego Comic-Con, right? That giant, sprawling event that draws masses of fans and creators to a single city for a single weekend every year. The one with the exclusive trailers and exclusive toys. The one where badges sell out and hotels fill up faster than you can say Allons-y! Would you believe it was once just a small affair?

While the rest of you were taking the day off, Mental Floss debuted a new video series today called The Big Question. In its first episode, Craig Benzine explains how decaf coffee is made despite the difficulty inherent with the caffeine being part of coffee beans. Sadly, he never answers the bigger question of why anyone would ever drink decaf.

If you, like us, have been gleefully following the story of the fornicating gecko-filled satellite that briefly lost contact with Earth a few months ago, then we've got bad news for you: According to Roskosmos space agency, all the geckos on the satellite have gone to that big lizard orgy in the sky.

Three-Minute Video Shows 500 Years of Women in Art - Oh, silly me, I didn't realize men could only paint Madonnas!

16 hours agoOdd : Geekosystem

I expected this video to awe me with the evolving ways in which women have been depicted in classical art, but to my admittedly very untrained eye, not much seems to have changed over half a millennium. As Jezebel points out, it's just pretty white woman after pretty white woman here—aside from forehead proportions, not much seems to have changed.

Marvel’s EIC Apologizes For Any “Mixed Messaging” That Spider-Woman Butt Cover Might Have Caused - We can't imagine what those mixed messages might have been.

16 hours agoOdd : Geekosystem

So, you might have heard that Marvel is releasing Spider-Women #1 in November. You may also have heard that the first issue will have a variant cover by Milo Manara which is, to say the absolute very least about it, precariously bootylicious. We (and many other people) were pretty upset about it - and Marvel is finally speaking out.

Study Says Social Media Is Making Us Unhappy and Distrustful - I bet they just want the publicity, though.

18 hours agoOdd : Geekosystem

The written word has a lot of drawbacks in missing out on tone and intention, which makes it soooo easy to pick up on stuff like sarcasm, you guys. On the Internet, it also has the drawback of trolling, and it turns out these problems seem to be causing social media to make people miserable.

Lynda Carter And The Ladies Behind The Latest Wonder Woman Comic Talk Gal Gadot - All of the opinions!

18 hours agoOdd : Geekosystem

Everyone on the internet has an opinion about Gal Gadot and her Wonder Woman look in Batman v Superman: The Epicest Court Case. And hey, that's great; but what about the people who are really invested in Diana? People like Queen Lynda Carter, and the ladies who are making the latest WW comic? Well, they have some feels about Gadot's look, too.

If You Sign a Mortgage in Russia, This Bank Will Lend You a Cat - Now with zero purrcent interest!

18 hours agoOdd : Geekosystem

Russia is currently facing a mortgage market boom, and banks in the region are doing whatever they can to capitalize on the increased interest (pun not intended) in home ownership. One way to do it? Let people borrow a cat to play with in their new apartment or house. Seems like a pretty dumb reason to buy a house, Russ—oh no ahh, they're so cute! Never mind, I'm on board.

18 hours agoOdd : Geekosystem

Life as a Tiny Hamster isn't just about tiny burritos and tiny pizza pies. Eventually, you have to settle down, get yourself an appropriately-sized job, maybe a tiny 401(k), eventually even some tiny property.

yesterdayOdd : Geekosystem

We already heard from three gymnasts who tested whether Milo Manara's Spider-Woman cover is anatomically possible, and now Redditor dinoignacio is getting involved with a 3D rendering that shows what wall-scaling, butt-popping Spidey would look like form the side. It's... not pretty. You've been warned. Full image (complete with 3D rendered butts 'n' boobs) is behind the jump.
