We’re about a year past the future the first Back to the Future envisioned, and it’s safe to say reality is looking a little more bleak compared to the world of that classic blockbuster. But we haven’t totally dropped the ball. To celebrate the film Nike went ahead and actually made a working pair of the self-lacing sneakers teased in that 80s classic, the Nike Mag. And now, the real Nike Mags have become the world’s most expensive sneakers.
Funerals are kind of strange. It’s often said that the whole casket, burial, eulogy thing is a process for the living and not the dead. We think we want to memorialize the ones we love, but really we’re just desperate to spend more time with them. It’s no wonder then that today’s youth have become increasingly uncomfortable with the whole process.

Shin Godzilla, which translates to a few things but for the purposes of the film is probably best Americanized as “True Godzilla” as this is the second time the Toho production company has rebooted their Godzilla franchise as a response to an American installment. The 1998 Roland Emmerich Godzilla lead to Toho’s Godzilla 2000 and a run of Godzilla films called the “Millennium Series” that culminated in 2014’s Godzilla: Final Wars, the last Toho Godzilla movie until this year’s new installment. The Millennium Series has no continuity between most of the installments but features a similar Godzilla in all the movies. Shin Godzilla is undeniably a new beginning for the monster, and even though this is the third movie where Godzilla terrorizes Japan without another monster cameo, Shin Godzilla is a film worthy of the “True Godzilla” title.

Each of the characters would make for great action figures, but for whatever reason, Blizzard Entertainment hasn’t commissioned any toy company to make official figures based on the game. This didn’t stop one person from taking the initiative and creating his own Overwatch figure completely by hand.
Wonder Woman has been a symbol of female empowerment in the comics world for decades, but now it’s official on a much larger scale.
Humans have been using silk to make fabrics for more than six thousands years. It’s already one of the strongest fibers around, but researchers have made it even stronger — and electrically conductive.
