There were far too many scenes to cover in Star Wars Attack of the Clones. Like why doesn’t anyone follow the money trail when the clone army is discovered being ordered by a long dead jedi? Why don’t the Cloners Aliens ever call to confirm someone will come get their giant army after waiting 10 years to grow them? Why does everyone just let Dooku walk around? Why does OB-1 not mention that Dooku says the senate is being manipulated by the Dark Lord of the Sith? Why not make that public? The HISHE would be over 30 minutes long and we might have collapsed trying to build all of those scenes. So we hope you enjoy the scenes we chose. It was a very fun episode to work on.
Google is asking users to choose between the Light and Dark Sides of the Force to awaken Star Wars-themed features across a variety of their apps and services. Users can unlock things like special Gmail backgrounds, Maps icons, and YouTube timelines that differ depending on which side of the Force they choose.
Google also shows users the “Balance of the Force” to indicate what percentage of users have chosen which side. At the time of this writing, the Dark Side has a slight edge of the Light.

In the latest episode of PBS Game/Show, host Jamin Warren explains how the ever-evolving state of modern language changes the value of points within the game of Scrabble thus changing how the game is played.
As language has changed over the years, Scrabbles’s famous point system has become flawed. The commonness of letters has changed, allowing savvy players to “beat the system” and gain an advantage over the average player.

It’s Thanksgiving this month. Correction: American Thanksgiving. Just want to make it clear that I am still Canadian. I had my turkey last month. But I thought this glorious roasted bird deserved to remain in the spotlight. That’s right, I’m going to cake a roasted turkey. I will carve this bird out of vanilla cake, and use some cool edible painting techniques to make it appear roasted to perfection. Happy Thanksgiving
