While it doesn't even have a finished script yet, the makers of Anchorman 2 are already talking about adding Kristen Wiig to their cast because when you're making a sequel to Anchorman, you can do whatever you want. The Wrap has broken the story that Wiig might be brought on board to play a love interest for Steve Carell's weatherman Brick Tamland. No word yet on whether or not she will be 1. an idiot just like Brick or 2. the mother of his eleven children, and so far, she is the only new addition to the ensemble. A version of Wiig's apathetic "a-hole" character from Saturday Night Live would be a lovely fit, but a weird genius would also be pretty fun opposite Brick Tamland. Or a stalker, which Wiig has played in animated bunny form. But at least it looks like Brick might finally fall for something that is not an inanimate object, and that's really great news for him! I hope he knows what to do! (via The Wrap)

Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
