Happy Alien Abduction Day! While we’re not exactly psyched to get pulled away from Earth by strange creatures, we do have some planets we wouldn’t mind seeing. We’ve listed the ones worthy of a tour below.

Legend has it that, in the latter half of the 5th Century, St. Patrick drove all of the snakes out of Ireland. We can only imagine such a massive undertaking required the consultation of Patrick’s best friend first.
Patrick: I can't stand these snakes, Liam.
Liam: Ho, now, Patrick. You're just a little cranky because you've been fasting for a couple of weeks.

We all know that Beauty and the Beast is a tale as old as time – but it doesn’t have to stay that way. What if we put a geeky spin on this classic tale of love? Let’s move away from the past and look into the future. Why, a love this historic could be…out of this world! That’s right, folks, we’re talking Beauty and the Beast in space!

It’s Women’s History Month and we’re looking for as many reasons as possible to celebrate the women in our lives. March is prime “because I love you” gift time, so we’ve rounded up five of our favorite feminist books to get for your best friend, sister, mother, aunt, or significant other. Because adding to someone’s feminist library is always a great idea.

The Ides of March is here, so we don’t know about you, but we’re watching our backs. In case you’re not in the know, Julius Caesar was famously stabbed to death on the Ides of March (that’s March 15, by the way) by his friend and protégé, Brutus. Since we love you so much and don’t want you to suffer the same fate, we’ve created a literature-based quiz to help you determine if your BFF is about to stab (or is currently stabbing) you in the back.
