Happy Pi Day! Here's a big slice of pop culture to help you celebrate

It’s March 14, also known as 3/14, also known as Pi Day. To some, it’s the most wonderful day of the year, when math geeks and science nerds alike can join together in mathematical harmony to celebrate the majestic wonders of this baffling number.

A few highlights below. READ FULL STORY

Pat Robertson turns attention to 'Twilight,' calls the franchise 'demonic' -- VIDEO

He’s baaaaaaack. After haranguing Saturday Night Live for their Tim Tebow lampoon, Pat Robertson has joined the anti-Twilight bandwagon. The 81-year-old aspiring hipster and fundamentalist minister deemed Stephenie Meyer’s sparklevamp franchise “evil” in a recent segment on his TV show, the 700 Club.

Responding a a viewer question about whether the series promotes witchcraft, Robertson recounted a story of demon possession told to him by a friend. According to Robertson, the demon in question “had permission” to possess a young girl because she had been enticed by the timeless love story of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. “It opened the door to demonic power. Yes, I think those vampire movies are evil,” said Robertson. “There are no vampires. The whole thing is demonic.” See more of Robertson’s thoughts on Twilight below. READ FULL STORY

Robert Pattinson's new buzzed 'do: Love it? Hate it?

Just when the tween world had started to recover from the shock and “awww” when Justin Bieber chopped his famous windswept locks, Robert Pattinson started the mourning process all over again when he debuted his newly buzzed dome at last night’s People’s Choice Awards. (If Taylor Swift decides to get rid of her bangs, the tween world as we know it may just collapse in on itself.) READ FULL STORY

George Takei, Broker of Star Peace, calls for unity, war on 'Twilight.' Oh my!

George Takei has accomplished what was once thought seemingly impossible and figured a way to settle one of the oldest nerd scores: The epic Star Trek vs. Star Wars debate. Prompted by the ongoing showdown between William Shatner (“First of all, Star Wars was derivative of Star Trek derivative!”: Point Shatner) and Carrie Fisher (“Klingon? It just sounds like a laundry detergent”: Point Fisher), the great Mr. Sulu opted to take charge and become a Broker of Peace to put an end to the galaxy-and-decade-spanning feud once and for all.

But how does one do that for a embittered battle in which both sides have such dedicated, unflappable supporters? It’s quite simple, really: Call out Twilight and urge both Star Trek and Star Wars fans to come together to mutually hate on it. (All the points: Takei.) READ FULL STORY
