Sunday Links for March 13

This past week was filled with sadness as the worst earthquake in their recorded history hit Japan, resulting in a Tsunami felt throughout the entire Pacific. For more information about how you can help, here's a great article by the Huffington Post. If you are still trying to locate someone, Google released a people finder tool to help. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.

Free Comic Day is fast approaching, and I can say that I am excited. Not just for the free books but because I never know what I will find. Bleeding Cool has previews for all 33 fcbd books for this year.

Stan Lee is cracking up geeks everywhere this week by finally answering the age old question from Mallrats, "What is the Thing's dork made of?" The answer is what we all expected.

If you are a big Scott Pilgrim fan, you will be happy to learn that there are four unreleased songs from the movie. They are from Beck, who did all of the songs for Sex Bob-omb.

Over at Geek to Me, they have a guest editorial from Sean “Blazek” Emes, who makes a very good argument that competitive gaming should be considered a sport. Having suffered from Wii elbow, I can say that gaming can be very, very physically dangerous.

Next time someone tells you that comics are pointless, idiotic reading for kids, make sure to show them this. For Women's History Month, the Smithsonian has created videos and comics to teach kids and adults about some of science's most influential women.

Pssst... Did you know that we are having a Bonanza? A crazy Autograph Bonanza where we give stuff away? Wanna take part? ;)

And now, just because its funny, I give you Angry Batbirds. You can check out more of them here.
