Morning Roundup: The Hobbit is So Money

If you live in New Zealand, you’re keenly aware that it’s also Middle-earth! In honor of the impending release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey—and with Tolkien fever back in full swing—actual New Zealand currency will feature Bilbo Baggins. Now that’s my precious. (News via The Telegraph.)

The rest of your offsite links contain no riddles, also not in the dark. Highlights include:

  1. What makes a hero?
  2. Incoming Doctor Who spoilers.
  3. Find out if you are in love with an alien or what, already.
