Dear Nanny State…

Dear Nanny State…

Dear Nanny State,

Enough already. It wasn’t enough that you regulate every inch of our lives. Now you want to mess with s’mores. We’re done. We’ve had it. It’s time for an uprising or revolution or strongly worded blog post. It has come to my attention that you are now sending out missives to Americans asking them to replace the chocolate and marshmallows in s’mores and replace them with strawberries and yogurt. It’s not enough you and the First Lady turned school lunch into a broccoli laced healthy product that kids won’t eat, now you want to jack with their Summer too?

Stop. Just stop! Go spend our tax dollars on fixing our infrastructure or curing cancer or preventing Kanye from attending award shows. But leave s’mores alone. We’re watching you…

Sincerely,

Citizens

Carry on, Citizens!

What Richard Branson Could Do With All The Money He Was Going To Pay Led Zeppelin

What Richard Branson Could Do With All The Money He Was Going To Pay Led Zeppelin

If you haven’t heard the news, Sir Richard Branson (mega rich British dude) offered the former members of Led Zeppelin $800 million dollars apiece to reunite and do a 35 city tour. That’s $800 million per member! That’s $3.2 Billion if you’re counting at home. And one guy turned it down: Robert Plant. In fact, the other guys signed the contract but Plant tore it up.

I have so many questions… where to begin?

Star Wars Episode VII Rumor of the Day

Star Wars Episode VII Rumor of the Day

It seems like every other day, there is a new Star Wars Episode VII rumor. From the plot to pictures, stuff just seems to keep leaking out. It’s almost as if JJ Abrams and Disney wanted it that way to keep the movie in the news…

Anyway, we here at the Citizens’ Geekery and SciFi Newsgathering Consortium (it might be a thing) have been digging into the movie ourselves. From time to time until the movie comes out (or until we get bored with this story) we will share some Star Wars “secrets.”  And you’re very lucky you stopped by today because we have some earth shattering Episode VII news that will BLOW YOUR MIND!

KNobsTo11

The Citizens’ Geekery has learned that all the nobs in the updated version of the Millenium Falcon will go to 11! That’s right, the Falcon has been upgraded by none other than Nigel Tufnel! No word yet from Abrams on how Nigel’s character will fit in the official Star Wars cannon. We’re betting he’s a Jedi haberdasher!

Carry on, Citizens!
