Brains are the sexiest part of the human body, and if you don’t believe it, just behold Jessica Kinni. In addition to being history’s sole title-bearer of both former NASA intern and reality TV star, she’s a relentless Whovian, outer space enthusiast, and survivor of our clumsy seduction attempts.

So it’s been too long since we’ve basked in her starlight and creeped her out with expressions like…

Who’s Better Than Lebron James? Twitter Has Some Really Bad Opinions

Who’s Better Than Lebron James? Twitter Has Some Really Bad Opinions

It seems as though the world will forever debate who’s better between Michael Jordan and Lebron James. Since that argument is clearly invalid since no one is better than Jordan, the debate has shifted to Lebron or Kobe in his prime. You can argue both sides, but there’s no denying that Lebron is an incredible athlete. I may not be a fan, but you’re crazy to think there’s anyone in the league…

Woodley paused. “Well,” she said. “Comparisons always lead to despair.” There was sudden silence, and then the audience, which was shocked and angry, began to boo. Fallon said something like “Whoa,” and Woodley held her ground. “As women, we are constantly told that we need to compare ourselves to a girl in school, to our co-­workers, to the images in a magazine,” she told me later. “How is the world going to advance if we’re always comparing ourselves to others? I admire Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s everyone’s favorite person to compare me to. Is it because we both have short hair and a vagina? I see us as separate individuals. And that’s important. As women, our insecurities are based on all these comparisons. And that creates distress.”

Shailene Woodley’s answer to being asked “How do you feel about being compared to Jennifer Lawrence?” by Jimmy Fallon.

Her strong, eloquent, and confident answer was booed by the studio audience (WTF!?!) and the segment completely cut from the broadcast by the show’s producers.

Not cool, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Not cool at all. You should be standing up for your female guests, not throwing them under the bus with loaded questions you don’t want real answers to.

Jim Lee is one of the biggest artists in comics, and his role goes well beyond the drafting table: He’s the co-publisher of DC Comics, along with Dan DiDio. And this year is a big deal for DC: Batman has his 75th anniversary this year, and DC is pulling out all the stops for the Dark Knight. We spoke to Lee about how he approaches Batman as an artist and why we love the caped crusader so much.

The movie Saw came out just under ten years ago, and since then, horror fans have had a huge variety of small-budget, viscerally terrifying movies to force their girlfriends to watch with them. Jason Blum has produced many of them, including the Paranormal Activity movies, Insidious, Sinister, and The Purge. That last one’s sequel, The Purge: Anarchy, came out on July 18.

I remember the first time I ever took my e-cig out in public. “What the hell is that?” was the most common refrain, along with “Look out for Future-Man here,” “Who do you think you are, Captain Kirk?” I don’t know why the latter one, I don’t recall ever seeing them on Star Trek, but then I was never that big of a Trekkie… although standing outside next to a bunch of glowing-ember-clutching…
