Here's all the news you may have missed:

1. Grab that Remote, It's Fall TV Time, beotches!

Time to lace up your Taylor Swift-issue Keds, grab your retro backpack, and queue up your DVR so you don't miss these awesome new Science Fiction and Fantasy Shows on TV This Fall!

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics

During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:



Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."

Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.

2. Donald Trump Breaks the Lie Barrier

Fact Check says Trump's First Ad Averages 1 Lie Every 4 Seconds. I can hear Hillary's slow golf-clap from here. Let's hope his next ad doesn't disappoint us either.

3. But Did You See the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team on the Beach in Rio?

I'm just saying, I didn't know it was possible to get an 8-pack:



Great job getting all those Olympic metals, ladies.

Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth have started filming Thor: Ragnarok in Brisbane, Australia:



Checking pulses.... yep, we're still in love! Looking forward to this next step in the series!

5. All of NASA's Research is Now Online for Free

Yep, you can now follow along on super-scientificcy NASA research stuff from the comfort of your home sweatpants:

Olympics commentary finally was worth watching this weekend, when a Bachelorette party crashed the BBC's coverage


The bride, Maria, refused to end her 15 Minutes of Fame, but paid back the favor by giving the network some free publicity by having her party chant "BBC! BBC!" for the cameras...




The commentator, Scott Bryan, didn't seem to mind...



...and even followed up with her the next day



The cutie finally ended her brief guest starring role by signing off with the "call me" sign....




Here's to hoping her husband doesn't mind her public lack of marital commitment.

Rio was crazy busy over the weekend! Here are the highlights of what you missed:

  1. You missed the torch lighting by Vanderlei de Lima, an athlete from the 2004 Athens Olympics who had been attacked during the 2004 games during his event. No one stabbed him this time though.

  2. Giselle did a stupid walk across the stage in a shiny dress. Was it cool? No. Was it meaningful? Debatable. Was it pointless? DEFINITELY.

  3. There was a hot guy in the opening ceremonies from Tonga and he was really really shiny for no apparent reason. We are all better people for it.

  4. A French gymnast suffered the worst break during a qualifier. Ouch. JEEEEZ. Almost TOO graphic. You won't unsee this.



    Oh, wait, yeah, let's just see that one more time...



    So shiny!



To be fair to the person who made the decision that there needed to be 75 lifeguards keeping an eye on the world's best swimmers, concussions and other accidents do happen. That hasn't stopped the internet jokesters from commenting on a picture of a bored looking lifeguard.
