Tip: What would Lost look like if it was set in the 1960s?
We're not quite sure, but thanks to Edot Achmejedidad, we at least know what the opening credits would look like.

Tip: Did you ever wake up to realize... that you're an undercover alien?
farfisasynth tells us about this independent film titled Earthling, set to come out this year:

After a mysterious atmospheric event, a small group of people wake up to realize that their entire lives have been a lie. They are in fact aliens disguised as humans. Now they have to make a choice. Live amongst men, or try to find a way back home.

Tip: Look forward to Young Justice League!

Tip: District 9 director Neill Blomkamp talks about life on other planets
Log1c tells us:

I caught this on /Film, but its a TEDx (the 'x' means independently organized) talk from Neill Blomkamp about what he thinks alien life will look like. Its actually very well presented, I've heard and read most of the points he makes but he adds some interesting visuals and presents in a very nice cohesive way. I recommend checking it out.

That sun halo is called a Sun Dog. I know this because a couple years ago when I first moved to the Pac NW, I spent about 45 minutes FREAKING OUT that there was this weird ring around the sun. I took pics, sent them to some friends, and finally found it on the innernet. They are really strange in person.
