Charming everyman Tom Hanks must have been pretty bored yesterday.

He obviously had a hankering to do a Reddit AMA, even though he's already done one. But instead of waiting for Redditors to ask him again what kind of sandwich he prefers, the tenacious Tom went around to different subreddits to find questions he felt like answering.

The results are adorable.

He talked about what movie he made that he thinks deserves reconsideration.



He answered many questions.

Like, a part of his job many people may not know about:



Something he thought was awesome as a teen, but ridiculous now:



Gave a weird six-word story:



Gave advice on what to buy to fill an unknown hole in your life:



Gave his favorite TV theme song:



Gave what he thought would have been the most underwhelming announcement from NASA on Mars



Gave his scariest movie moment:



Apparently, he really, really hates reality TV.



He recommended a book on Soviet history:



And gave advice on what to do when you're under the weather.



What a dad.



And in the end, he gave his favorite quote:



Thanks, Tom Hanks.

Have you seen the movie Fight Club? Have you read the book? If you answered yes to both of those questions, you know they have two different endings. Banana-Dragon Productions has done a shot for shot recreation of that final scene, but changed the movie ending to reflect what happens in the book. Which do you think is the stronger ending?

"Being right and being alone is a challenging existence."

Most everyone was pretty excited, or at least mildly interested, in the announcement NASA made yesterday about the likely possibility that there's liquid water on Mars.

Not Rush Limbaugh, unfortunately.

He's got his own ideas about just what NASA is doing up there.



According to him:

I said 'look at the temperature data, that has been reported by NASA, has been made up, it's fraudulent for however many years, there isn't any warming, there hasn't been for 18.5 years. And yet, they're lying about it. They're just making up the amount of ice in the North and South Poles, they're making up the temperatures, they're lying and making up false charts and so forth. So what's to stop them from making up something that happened on Mars that will help advance their left-wing agenda on this planet?'



So there you have it. Finally, the truth.

Pope Francis has left America behind, but surely he will not soon forget his six-day visit to America.

Washington D.C., New York and Philadelphia all got a chance to glimpse the Pontiff.

He was put on a pizza and recreated in dog form and even used to troll NYC.

He also made resigning Speaker of the House John Boehner cry.



But possibly nothing could prepare him for coming big hat to big hat with a baby dressed up in the robes of the supreme Holy See.

It looks like he loved it.

Bon voyage, Pope. See you later.

The world is a tough place when you're Justin Bieber.

So tough, in fact, that you have thousands of adoring fans begging to take their photo with you. And sometimes you just aren't "feeling it."

The Biebs explained in a Snapchat diatribe that he just wants to "have that moment without the chaos" when meeting fans. Don't even think about screaming his name and begging. It won't work.

"If you start screaming louder that's not going to make me want to take a photo more," he says.

Don't worry, Justin. We won't beg for a selfie. We'll just keep watching this GIF of you failing at skateboarding—a reminder of how you also fail at any semblance of humility.

Mr. Smithers might finally come out of the closet this season.

Come on out, Mr. Smithers. We're all waiting for you.

The Simpsons new season, which just began Sept. 27, might have some lasting changes to the cast. Specifically, Mr. Smithers just might admit his sexuality to Mr. Burns.

It's long been known that Mr. Smithers is gay, for a while it was used as the only aspect of that character, but it's remained hidden from the dastardly Mr. Burns for the duration of the two's working relationship.



Speaking to TV Line, Executive Producer Al Jean revealed a little teaser about what's to come in the 27th season:

"In Springfield now, most people know he's gay, but obviously Burns doesn't," Jean notes. "We deal with that in two episodes. … We actually do a lot with Smithers this year; he gets fed up with Burns not appreciating him and considers his options."



I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

But don't worry Mr. Smithers. It gets better.

"I'd really encourage you not to tell women what to do and not pursue these laws that really are in nobody's best interest. We have other problems to solve. Come on."

We usually think of notable scientist as a pleasant, friendly guy who's more than happy to explain climate change to us with the help of emojis.

But this video released by Big Think Sept. 22 shows a Bill Nye that's just barely holding it together. The subject of his frustration is the current legislation trends with regards to reproductive rights and the belief that life begins at conception.

He has to correct his tone several times as he tries to point out the faulty logic, bad science and the fictitious basis for legislation which is setting back the pace of access to reproductive health services and taking rights away from women who should have the most say over their future.

He manages to keep it together and provide a cogent appeal to lawmakers.

Go get 'em, Bill.
