+ Stephen Hawking discussed the possibility of life on other planets on Monday at an event celebrating the 50th anniversary of NASA. Apparently, it was also a roast: "Primitive life is very common and intelligent life is fairly rare," he said, quickly adding, "Some would say it has yet to occur on earth." Ha, that Hawking.
+ For those of you with BBC America, April's Nerd Man of the Month David Tennant is going to be on the new episode of "Top Gear" this coming Monday at 8 p.m. He'll be driving fast cars (okay, crappy economy cars at moderate speeds) and everything! By the way, everyone who told me to watch Doctor Who was absolutely right. I tuned in this past Friday and really enjoyed it. I can understand the Tennant love completely now!
+ Did you know that at least 22 graphic novels are being turned into films as we speak! (Or type.) I guess Hollywood ran out of comic book characters. On a related note, the doodle I drew of a dancing rabbit in a top hat from this morning's meeting is being turned into a 17 hour miniseries produced by Tom Hanks and starring Vincent D'Onofrio as the "rabbit who can't keep his jazz hands to himself."
