News Bits, In Brief

The most fearless paper in America, The Weekly World News, is dead. The always entertaining and informative supermarket tabloid was 28 years old. Send all sympathy cards, floral arrangements and cash donations to 'Bat Boy.'

Popular Mechanics has a list of The Top 5 Harry Potter Gadgets We Want (and Where You Can Find Them). While time-turners and magic wands are still only a thing of fiction, flying cars are only four years and $500,000 away.

Via Boing Boing: "Spiderman fan Andrew Farago was browsing...San Francisco's KAYO Books when he stumbled upon a Planned Parenthood issue of The Amazing Spider-Man from the 1970s...Thankfully, Andrew scanned and posted the whole comic."
