Dubbing Dragon Ball's Fights Is As Intense As The Actual Fights

Video: When Sean Schemmel and Jason Douglas record the English voices for a Dragon Ball Z fight, they get so much in character that I was expecting them to get covered in yellow flames too. The energy they display is as interesting to watch as the fight itself.


The Palestine Conflict History Explained In One Absurd Animation

This animated short by Nina Paley — in the tradition of the best Monty Python music skits — might not be an orthodox history lesson, but it’s an accurate depiction of the horrible 6000-year bloodshed in the region of Palestine, with dozens of tribes and nations fighting each other to claim ownership of that land.


Foxconn Shuts Factory After 2000-Employee Brawl Breaks Out

Foxconn has had to close down a factory in Taiyuan, China, which employs 79,000 people after a massive brawl broke out amongst 2000 of its workers. Bloomberg is reporting that the fight left 40 people hospitalised and some employees arrested.


Why Are Some Scientists Attacking NASA's New Life Discovery?

Some scientists are aggressively attacking NASA’s new life discovery—GFAJ-1, the microbe capable of using arsenic instead of phosphorous to build itself. The reason: Dr. Rosie Redfield said she “was outraged at how bad the science was.”


Iron Man vs Bruce Lee: FIGHT!

Who will win? Bruce Lee and his mighty kung-fu moves? Iron Man and his Martini-powered armour made out of cocktail shakers? You’ll know as soon as you watch this cool video:


Darth Vader Given Arrest Warrant, Pleads Guilty to Assault

After Darth Vader kicked a Jedi Master’s arse with the Dark Side of the Crutch, District Judge Andrew Shaw issued an arrest warrant against the Lord of the Sith. After dictating it, he added: “I hope the force will soon be with him” (really—God save the Judge, Queen, and English humour.) Vader arrived later, pleading guilty to assault. During the trial, however, the court found that the events weren’t exactly as we were initially told: the Jedis were actually even more moronic than previously imagined.


Darth Vader Kicks Jedi Master's Arse With Crutch

A drunk guy dressed as Darth Vader, wielding a metal crutch, and probably making sounds like *swwoooshh* and *pew*pew*, assaulted and effectively kicked the arse of the founder of the first Jedi Church of England. The dork, a hairdresser called Barney Jones whose Jedi name is Master Hehol, was beaten down in his garden by the anonymous Vader while he was being interviewed for a documentary. Really. We mean this. The Jedi actually had this to say after the assault:


Fighting Back Against Gadget Companies - Nokia Edition

What do most of us do when we’re repeatedly yanked around by Gadget companies who refuse to completely fix broken electronics? Most of the time we give up, resigning ourselves to the fact that we’re not getting anywhere and eventually just buying a new phone/mp3 player/toaster to replace the defective unit. This man in Singapore refused to take this route when Nokia essentially ignored his repair claim, and took matters into his own hands using their version of small claims court. He sets a good example for all of us.


Real Life Optimus Prime Challenges Megatron To Epic Battle

You may remember these two gentlemen, as we recently covered them in the run-up to the Transformers movie debut. Optimus Prime changed his name to honor his childhood hero, while Jason Burrows took the less drastic step of altering his middle name to Megatron. Now it seems that Optimus has had enough tomfoolery and wants to settle things once and for all:


Former RIAA Lawsuit Target Turns the Tables

A woman who was sued by the RIAA for file sharing and had the charges dismissed with prejudice isn’t done with the courtroom yet. She’s decided to file a lawsuit against the RIAA for malicious prosecution.

Tanya Andersen, a disabled single mother, describes how she provided evidence of who really was using the Kazaa username in question, yet the RIAA ignored it and kept pushing on with their suit. They even tried to directly contact her 8-year-old daughter, calling her both at their apartment as well as at her former elementary school under false pretenses. If this case manages to succeed it will set a new precedent that will open the door for other former targets of the RIAA to jump on the pigpile. Go Tanya, Go!
