Who doesn’t love Bill Nye The Science Guy? Probably hardcore conservatives after seeing this video.

The 59-year-old educator recently recorded a video for Big Think. When an anonymous reader asked whether homosexuality is “a product of human’s personal whim as opposed to instinct?” Nye quickly referenced Desmond Morris’ book The Naked Ape which documented homosexual behaviour among primates.

When addressing the reader’s comment about procreation, Nye replied, “I don’t know about you but I have known a great many gay men who are married, who have babies, who have kids. So apparently – I’m not an authority on this. I’m an observer of the human condition. Apparently there’s a spectrum.”

He ends the video with, “So let’s celebrate being alive everybody. Apparently it’s just something that happens in nature and look, we’re all here.” Preach Bill Nye! Preach!

Ryan Steele and Amy Goodmurphy are back with another HILARIOUS video… this time they’re poking fun at Instagram and how some people take it so seriously.

For this video, they’ve enlisted the Insta-help of Kyle Krieger, a hair stylist from Los Angeles who is Insta-famous with almost 200,000 followers… aka a bajillion. His Instagram description reads, “Being popular on Instagram is like being rich in Monopoly money.” In the video, Ryan brings Amy along with him to an Instagram party that he was invited to, hosted by Kyle Krieger. Everyone there is all about Instagram and in no time at all, Amy feels out of place.

Ryan and Amy have A LOT of funny videos, but I dare say this one is one of the best. Check out the video below!

In: Donovan, Random Reads

First and foremost, Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there. Hope you’re all being spoiled on your special day.

Dad bods are suddenly all the rage. Finally, men with less than a perfect bodies and have a little more meat on their bones are getting their due. Here are a couple of parodies celebrating full-figured dudes. Coincidentally, both are set to the tune of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.” Check them both out below.

Must See Sketch: We Don’t Serve Gays

In: Donovan, Random Reads

We’ve all heard stories about LGBT patrons being denied service for their sexuality. Perhaps, you’ve been on the end of such discrimination. Most often, religious beliefs are the go-to reasons as to their motives.

This spoof highlights exactly how silly businesses look when they refuse to serve the gays. Even though some reasons are outrageously ridiculous, they’re no more insane than actual ones dished out by bigots. Check out the clip below.

Love nipple play? Who doesn’t ;) You definitely have to watch this random commercial from across the pond.

The spot, created by London agency AMV BBDO, is for a software company called Thunderhead. The business-to-business service helps advertisers understand their customers. If they’re gunning solely for the demographic that loves man-on-man suckling, then mission accomplished. The Viking-looking dude’s nipples are legendary.

I could describe the commercial, but I feel it’s a clip best experienced going in blind. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.

Oh selfies. The thing we love to hate but then take our own anyway… you know, to capture the moment, to have evidence of all of fun you’re having. I’m totally guilty of it on my Instagram. A while ago, I was with a few friends, one of which always has the best, most artistic selfies of him and/or him and his friends. It’s really quite a talent. So, when we all finished brunch, I suggested the group of us take a photo together… like the ones he does. He responded, “Okay, do you have two hours?” HA! Here I thought he was just snapping amazing photos with ease but it was actually a well thought out production. It makes me wonder how many shots people take before the one they post?

In this new Funny or Die video, two girl friends (Lauryn Kahn & D’Arcy Karden) want to take a photo of their night hanging out together because they don’t have many photos together and they think their friends would like to see a picture of them hanging out. Well, taking this photo isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Praise baby Jesus!!! I’ve always wanted to go to the Harry Potter theme park, but if I’m going to fly all that way to Florida, I’m spending my time in Miami. No offense, Orlando ;) Now, I can take in all things Hogwarts on the West Coast.

Universal Studios Hollywood announced The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is headed to La-la Land. It’s signature ride, the 3-D HD spectacular “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey,” and other attractions are set to open sometime in Spring 2016. I can’t wait to enjoy some Butterbeer.

“The momentum behind J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world is as strong as ever and we are incredibly excited to bring Hogwarts to Hollywood,” said Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, in a press release. “Fans around the world have experienced the magic at ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ in Orlando and Osaka, and we look forward to continued success with our partners at Universal Studios Hollywood as we offer more fans a chance to step into this immersive environment.”

In the words of Sean Connery himself from the original film, “I’m waiting to be impressed.” Though it recouped its budget and then some, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen left both critics and audiences unimpressed. Not surprisingly, a sequel was never produced.

There are reports now, though, that 20th Century Fox is rebooting the franchise based on Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s graphic novel of the same title.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, it’s sort of The Avengers but with literary icons from the Victorian era teaming up. Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dorian Gray, Mina Harker, Allan Ian Quatermain and more join forces to fight a common enemy. Connery, Peta Wilson, Shane West and Stuart Townsend starred in the 2003 film. Speaking of 007, the film was his final live-action film before retiring.

This isn’t the first time someone has attempted to resurrect The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen franchise. Back in 2013, FOX made a pilot commitment to create a TV series, but the network eventually passed.

Do you think a reboot will work? Did you watch the first film? Check out the original theatrical trailer below.
