Morning Roundup: Cumberbatch and Downey Jr. are Neighbors

Listen. It’s entirely possible the aliens in Alien are allegric to cats. Jones totally lives through the entire ordeal on the Nostromo, and the xenomorph bats away the little cage Jones is in that one scene. So. Maybe Jones saved the day. (Don’t think about this too hard or it won’t be fun anymore.)

Your offsite links will create nerdy rumors you have heard only in your mind.

Highlights include:

  1. Does Cumberbatch live close to Robert Downey Jr.? Well...
  2. The truth about Disney’s shared universe.
  3. Nimoy is out and about.

Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook!  Here’s today’s selection:

Leonard Nimoy


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com. Stubby the Rocket has six cats all named Jones, all posistioned at key airlocks to keep bad aliens out. (Most of them are napping.)

i think brett would beg to differ. but the real question is: would ripley have survived if she had not gone for the cat? would parker and lambert (well, parker anyway) have survived if ripley had come with them?
