The first Star Wars trailer is out. Who know in future space we'd even still have trailers?

A study says that Julius Caesar may have suffered a series of mini strokes. By hands of friends with knives in them, right? Didn't we already know that?

A new study claims that acetaminophen reduces pain, but also decreases pleasure. Can the phrase, "Not tonight, Honey, I took a Tylenol" be far behind?

A report says that robotic chefs could be serving meals by 2017. We're just a few short years away from the Iron Chef actually being iron.

In Seattle on Friday, a semi-truck overturned, losing its cargo of bees. The lines that followed: It resulted in a honey of a backup. Yeah, I'm a son of a bee. The owner would like to remind you that this is none of your beeswax. Hive Fi's! It's been the buzz all morning. Until it's cleaned up, we're refusing to play any songs by Sting. Yeah, we're putting him on the bee list. OK, that's enough.

Radio bro Matt Case posted this on his Facebook page: When I die, I want my grave to offer free Wifi so that people visit more often.

Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti tweeted out a picture of herself in the International Space Station wearing a Star Trek: Voyager uniform. Those are allowed. Alien stomach gag puppets are not allowed.

Tim Teabow has signed a contract and will soon be playing with the Eagles. Needless to say, Joe Walsh is not happy...

A group of prostitutes at a brothel in Nevada have endorsed Hillary Clinton for President, calling themselves "Hookers for Hillary." Can't you just hear Bill saying, "Oh, don't worry about it, darlin', I'll handle this one."

Paris Hilton's Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, has died at age 14. That's 98 in dog years or 1,984 in being owned by Paris Hilton years.

43 dinosaur eggs were just discovered in China, which should set the record for oldest Easter Egg hunt with the worst results.

People Magazine has named Sandra Bullock the world's most beautiful woman of 2015.  Apparently, for the rest of the year, we just can't do any better.

We're getting closer and closer to the day that we're going to be seeing the "Charlie Bit Me Video Reunion Special" on YouTube.

The Department of Energy is warning we could be subject to threats of terror because of the electric grid.  As if we don't already consider the electric bill terrifying enough.
