For those of you that are familiar with "Star Trek: The Next Generation" you may remember a character by the name of Wesley Crusher played by the actor Wil Wheaton who also starred in the movie "Stand By Me". And for those who are true Wil Wheaton fans then you will remember Wil as the villianous character Fawkes on "The Guild", a web series that follows the life and times of an online gaming guild. Wil Wheaton has also appeared on the TV shows "The Big Bang Theory" and "Leverage".
What many people may not realize is that in real life Wil Wheaton loves science, math, and other intellectual things just like the characters he plays on TV. As an adult Wil gets a chance to live out his boyhood dreams of being able to go to comic book conventions and meet various authors, and comic book writers. He even gets to make an appearance himself, and participate on panels with other actors, and directors who discuss various science fiction projects that he has been working with.
While it is a lot more fun being a bit nerdy as an adult, it can be tough when you are a child. Not all children are understanding when another child wants to talk about the latest advances in science, or the latest science fiction movie that just came out. In fact, sometimes the book savvy kids get bullied by other kids at school, and on the playground.
At one of the Comic Cons that Wil Wheaton attended, a young girl posed a question to him as to whether or not he got bullied as a child, and Wil was able to give a very eloquent, and thought provoking answer to this young fan's question. In the video below, Wil talks about how he dealt with being bullied, and gives some advice to those who are being bullied for being a "nerd".
So without further ado, please take a look at the video below!

If you have ever watched Wheel of Fortune on television you know how difficult it can be to solve the main puzzles. There are three people all competing to try and solve the puzzle before their competitors are able to do so. There is usually a lot of money at stake (or at least a nice prize at stake) so it makes sense that everyone is giving it their best shot at solving as many puzzles as possible in order to go on to the bonus round.
Once someone makes it to the bonus round, the situation changes dramatically. Instead of competing against two other people, it is now just you, and you alone who must face the puzzle. The good news is that you not only get five consonants and one vowel, once those have been revealed then you get a chance to choose three more consonants and another vowel.
But what do you do when after the first go around with revealed letters you only get two letters revealed, and with the second go around there are NO LETTERS REVEALED?!?!?!?
This would seem like a dire and almost impossible situation to overcome. But not for Emil! He had done really well on the other puzzles on the show so far, so it came as little surprise that he would solve this one. But even Pat Sajak was in utter disbelief when Emil was able to solve such a long puzzle with just two letters shown.
Was Emil extremely lucky...
or was this fixed?
Take a look at the video clip of the show, and let your opinion be known!

Millions and millions of people across the world use the Google search engine everyday. Men, women, boys, and girls will type in what they are interested in, or what they need to find out more information about. Some people even type in a web address to find out how to go to that web address (go figure). Luckily the search engine is just a program with an amazing algorithm that does a pretty good job of giving us what we want.
But have you ever wondered what it would be like if, instead of a program, you had to rely on a person to help you with your searches? In this comedy bit from College Humor you get to find out just what that would be like. In many of these cases you might even relate because you have done that kind of search (or know someone who has).
In either case, just sit back, and relax as you watch the College Humor video: If Google Was A Guy

If you grew up in the 80s or was a business executive during that time, then you probably remember playing with a device that had steel ball bearings suspended from thin wires (otherwise known as a Newton's Cradle). They were fun to play with, and were great when you were really, really bored. The only problem is that because the color remained the same, this executive toy could become boring as well. But now there is a variation on this "blast from the past" with the Kinetic Light Newton's Cradle
On this variation, the balls actually light up, and change color as they transfer energy from one ball to the other. The basic premise of this device is that as one ball hits a ball at the far end, its energy is transferred all through the other balls until it reaches the ball at the other end. In theory, if you didn't have such a thing as friction, and air resistance, the balls would continue to hit each other indefinitely (essentially a perpetual motion device).
With the Kinetic Light Newton's Cradle, you can watch as the balls change color while striking each other. This is MUCH more fun than the original, and will keep you much more entertained.
