Deadline analyzes SDCC by asking: "So Who Comic-Conquered San Diego?" I think everyone already knows the answer, but they spell it out. :D

The fanboy Super Bowl is over. Who made the most of San Diego Comic-Con and who spit the bit? Here’s the view from Deadline staffers who endured endless movie and TV show presentations. We’ll start with features:

The best Comic-Con panels show fans things they’ve never seen before. From that standpoint, Warner Bros changed the game by making the Hall H experience seem larger. It turned the dark curtains covering 450 feet down the sides of the auditorium into a wraparound multimedia visual experience that left jaded geeks looking left and right in wonder at images that complemented the onstage presentation. Expect others to rip this off. […]

Warner Bros also wowed with explosive footage from Mad Max: Fury Road, a film that looks like it could be the answer someday to this Trivial Pursuit question: What movie transformed Tom Hardy from a great actor into a big fucking movie star?

The Max Factor as delivered to you by uber-talented Tom Hardy is potent, dynamic, scorchingly resonating across continents, so factor that into the equation. :D

An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

My friend who worked at Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska had as similar story.  Rare fish were disappearing, they suspected theft, and so set up a camera. An octopus was unlocking the top of its tank, walking across the suspended walkway, unlocking the other tank, eating his fill, re-locking the other tank, then re-locking its own tank.

Tom Hardy with a picture of his relative Lieutenant Leonard Hardy - photographed by Rich Hardcastle as part of a campaign:

The Royal British Legion has launched a campaign to help people pay tribute to each of the 1,117,077 Commonwealth servicemen and women who died in the First World War. The Every Man Remembered initiative - backed by stars of the stage, screen and the world of business - was unveiled today to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the war.

It is an online database that allows people to pay tribute to people with whom they are connected or to find someone who has no-one to commemorate them.

Renowned figures from entertainment, arts and business have already hailed some of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Actor Tom Hardy, Downton Abbey creator Lord Julian Fellowes, TV historian Dan Snow and West Ham United vice chairman Karren Brady are among those who have been photographed holding pictures of fallen First World War servicemen they are connected to.

Dr Stephen Clarke, head of remembrance at the Legion, said: “Every Man Remembered will be our greatest act of remembrance during the First World War centenary.

"We’re asking the British public to commemorate every one of the 1,117,077 men and women who died during the First World War through our huge online database.

"You can look up a family member, namesake, or make a random search - the important thing is that not a single one of them is left without a dedication and recognition of the role they played in providing the freedom we have today."

Users can find someone who was in their family, or who shares their name, age, workplace, birthday or home town.

The campaign was inspired by a British Explorer Scout who visited a war cemetery in Belgium and wrote to the Legion asking why some of the graves had dozens of poppies and crosses next to them, while others had none.

Dr Clarke added: “The support The Royal British Legion provides is just as important for our armed forces today as it was when the charity was founded after the First World War.

"Every Man Remembered will help us make a real connection to those who died 100 years ago and support those who continue to serve."
