    Netflix In-Flight Entertainment Coming in Soon

    When I fly, I like to read. But most people prefer to watch movies or TV shows on board, and now Netflix has announced it’s going to get into the in-flight entertainment business.

    Project Invincible: Civilian Body Aromor from McLaren

    A certain rich guy out there – let’s call him Client X, since that’s what McLaren is calling him – wanted to be, for all intents and purposes, invincible.

    Dime Novel Edition Field Notes (Video)

    The phrase “dime novel” is a common figure of speech even today, used to indicate silly or contrived dramatic scenarios.
