  • In an alternate universe where the nine members of Tolkein’s Fellowship of the Ring did not assemble for the purposes of deciding what to do with an unfathomably evil Ring of Power, and instead came together solely to partake in holiday merriment, they might have opted to participate in a White Elephant gift exchange. Or, as would be more accurate in Middle Earth, a White Oliphaunt. View their results here.

  • The new year is here, and you've probably made two resolutions: to get in shape and to read more books. So why not combine the two?

  • It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your kitchen calculations, if you live near him.

    Cakes, breads, cookies and roasts - all the things a delicious dragons hoard boasts! Embrace your inner domestic dragon with your own pair of Smaug-inspired oven mitts designed to protect your hands like tenfold shields against the fires of stove and oven.

  • We all know Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics:

     

    1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

    2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

    3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

     

    But that hardly covers every interaction a robot might have. Here are 25 additional laws of robotics, to cover any eventuality.
