Morning Roundup: Darth Vader Hugs a Unicorn

There’s only one question on everyone’s lips right now: how many new puppies born in 2012 will be named John Carter? We think the answer is somewhere between 1 and ALL them. Check back with us next year when all the dogs are called John Carter and we’ll see who is rich.

Highlights include:

  3. Nick Sagan takes everyone to sci-fi school.
