More than 50 years have passed since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Since then, we’ve come a long way as a nation—just look at our new Congress—but we’ve still got a long way to go. Poverty rates among black and Latinx people in the U.S. are more than double those of their white peers.

Powered by spite, Harry Brewis - better known as Hbomberguy - played Donkey Kong 64 live on stream for almost 60 hours. The world rallied around him and raised over $475,000 for transgender support charity, Mermaids.

A day later and the world continues to be a rad place in the wake of this gargantuan effort.

A pair of dueling Fyre Festival documentaries — one on Hulu and one on Netflix — are giving viewers a better idea of how a festival-turned-shitshow managed to so badly botch its spectacular promise of being one of the greatest events the world had ever known.

Elon Musk has come out on on Twitter to say that the director of research lab CERN, Fabiola Gianotti, asked him about collaborating on a new particle collider. The new particle collider is slated to be four times the size of the Large Hadron Collider.

The Star Wars galaxy is home to some of the most iconic starship designs in popular culture. We know the fabled wedge of the Star Destroyer roaring into view at the start of A New Hope, the legendary silhouettes of X-Wings and TIE Fighters are burned into our minds. But one oft-forgotten ship has made a bit of a resurgence, decades after its debut.

Every starship must have a chief medical officer, and while Star Trek’s Bones McCoy may be the most iconic space doctor of all time, The Orville’s Dr. Claire Finn (Penny Johnson Jerald, a Deep Space Nine alum) has some valuable and unique skills to bring to the table.

As The Orville’s second season continues, we’re increasingly convinced that Dr. Finn is the ship’s real MVP.

To live is to forget—account numbers, names, the precise locations of keys and wallets, friends from childhood, peripheral characters from prestige TV shows, inside jokes, past ambitions, history, much else. Goldfish with guns: that’s the human race. But every frailty, we know, serves some larger adaptive purpose. So it is worth asking, as we wrack our brains for whatever it was we know we were supposed to do today: why must things be like this? Why do we forget?
