March 5, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Two Flus Over Cornell's Test
All right, everyone's on board with the need for zombie defense - that's a good start. Usually some doctor played by Brad Dourif has to do something horribly wrong before the government heeds the crazed warnings of a fringe action-scientist played by Casper Van Dien. We've told you about how some scholars figured various authorities and governments would react to an outbreak of the undead (back on April 10, 2011
), and Canada (being Canada) has worked out how the infection would spread (from August 29, 2009
), but now . . .
What a time to be alive . . . and stay alive.

February 19, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Delicious, Nutritious, Overtly Vicious
Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch's video studio Rocket Jump
is responsible for some memorable content. For example, remember commercials from the 90s? Here's betting you don't recall them quite like this
. (And if you don't want the kids recalling them in the middle of the night for the next week, steer them away from it.)

February 6, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: The Cat's Eee-Yow
Horror writer H.P. Lovecraft felt the most merciful thing in the world was that men couldn't correlate its contents. Having your cat do it for you doesn't seem like much of an improvement. His cognitive abilities are limited to say the least, and he'll probably bat at the tentacles of monsters with his claws when they come for him. But why not let him take all the chances exploring the darkest areas of this veil of tears? If you're willing to venture into Tumblr
- surely as maddening an experience as any Howard Philips could have imagined - you can see how observations on the Mythos jibe when paired with cat pictures at H.P. Lovecat

December 3, 2011: Illuminated Site of the Week: Bared-Bones Conspiracy
Pay no attention to the people who say that evolution isn't real or that men once rode dinosaurs: David Wozney explains how the mighty lizards may never have existed at all in Dinosaurs: Science Or Science Fiction. Using everything from poor judgment to plaster casts, have paleontologists constructed in their own minds (and in several museum displays) flights of fancy that do a disservice to real science? Have carbon dating and fossil studies been a waste of precious decades? He even goes to the trouble of offering alternative theories about possible mentions of same in the Bible, should those be muddying the, uhm . . . historic? . . . waters for anyone. If true, it may represent one of the greatest conspiracy frauds ever perpetrated on mankind - certainly the biggest one built from chicken bones, anyway.
