For whatever reason, the internet has just caught onto the fact that the fat child who ate an entire cake on Matilda hit puberty and came out the other end as a pretty good looking dude.  You may not have been aware, but someone made the cast of Matilda get together and reenact favorite fan moments at a reunion for a bonus feature in a 2013 edition of the movie. 

For those of you who have just discovered a new celebrity crush, here's the scene with him all grown up:

This "website" is really just a redirect to a Facebook search for friends who like Trump. If you're in the mood to shed some dead weight from your social obligations, this is the perfect tool.

geek news george lucas defends greedo shot first doesnt use internet

In a recent interview with The Washington Post, George Lucas waxed poetic about the painful experience of letting go of Star Wars, and the lengths he's had to go to over the years in order to spare himself the vitriol of Star Wars fans. Apparently, "Lucas says he has assiduously avoided the Internet since 2000 — no Facebook, no Twitter, no e-mail even," which I guess means he's been lucky enough to never have to witness a debate about who shot first on someone's Facebook wall.



Speaking of who shot first, Lucas defended his "Greedo shot first" change as convincingly as you'll ever hear:

Han Solo was going to marry Leia, and you look back and say, ‘Should he be a cold-blooded killer?’ Because I was thinking mythologically — should he be a cowboy, should he be John Wayne? And I said, ‘Yeah, he should be John Wayne.’ And when you’re John Wayne, you don’t shoot people [first] — you let them have the first shot. It’s a mythological reality that we hope our society pays attention to.


Han Solo may be a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder, but the man's got a code. Luckily for Lucas, he won't be online to read the responses to that argument.

Cleveland-based dentist Gino DiGiannantonio (aka Dr. Gino) may not know it yet, but his strange haircut has a lot of people talking.

His photo in an ad has been viewed over 3 million times the past 17 hours, because… that hair.

Here are just a few of the comments:

“When the hairdresser asks if the haircut looks good and you just say yes.”

“This man’s got a 3 head.”

“In his defense, he does have nice teeth and the sign is for dentistry.”

“looks more like a kitten covered in afterbirth to me”

He’s also starting to get the meme treatment:

“It’s not delivery, it’s DiGiannanitonianonio.”

"The Soup" host and "Community" star Joel McHale is about to take on the trolls!

E! has greenlit his pilot for "Comments Section," which will star Michael Kosta and "focus on deconstructing the often snarky comments on popular websites."

Not sure if this will shame them, or encourage them…

Things are about to get a whole lot nastier down there.

Obama made his first big push in the fight for Net Neutrality Monday, with a statement encouraging the FCC to keep the Internet open and free.

"There are no gatekeepers deciding which sites you get to access. There are no toll roads in the information superhighway," Obama says in the accompanying video, which opens with a playful little "buffering" animation.

FCC chair Tom Wheeler proposed new Internet traffic rules earlier this year, and millions of people commented on the FCC website in protest.

From his statement:

"Net neutrality" has been built into the fabric of the Internet since its creation — but it is also a principle that we cannot take for granted. We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas. That is why today, I am asking the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to answer the call of almost 4 million public comments, and implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.

Obama also emphasized that ISPs shouldn't block sites that are legal or throttle a user's service.
