An Honest Trailer for The Fast and the Furious

The new movie F9 is in theaters now. It's a simple name for the ninth film in a series centered around a set of characters driving cars very fast. That's nine movies, and a few spinoffs. These characters -and their plots- have come a long way from that first film in 2001, The Fast and the Furious, which Screen Junkies is just now getting around to making an Honest Trailer for.

The Partition of India

Here's another bit of history you probably didn't learn in an American school because 1. the US had nothing to do with it, 2. anything more recent than 1492 didn't make it into your World History class, and 3. it was all a teacher could do to squeeze in World War II before the end of the school year. But what happened in India in the 20th century is important globally.

Dinnermost Thoughts

Without using words, Awkward Spaceship recreates a conversation that happens every evening somewhere. But it's not always the gender roles portrayed -I've been through this ordeal with various family members too many times, and generally just get myself a sandwich if no one else wants to cook or make a decision about dinner. Then the most clueless kid will come to me about 10PM and ask what's for dinner! (Thanks, Sam Kashe!)
