First Trailer for Wonder Woman



The trailer for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie debuted at San Diego Comic Con. We first saw Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now it’s time for her to kick ass and take names in her own film. Chris Pine is Steve Trevor. The movie will be out in June of 2017. (via Uproxx)

The Common Chameleon



This “nature documentary” is actually animated. The chameleon’s biggest flaw is its “untamed sense of appetite.” He wants to eat anything that flies by, which turns out to be his downfall. Karma, chameleon! This is episode two of the series Our Wonderful Nature. You can see episode one here. We may see episode three in another five years. (via Digg)

NASA: On the Edge of Forever



To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and the opening of the new film Star Trek Beyond, NASA has produced three videos about the link between the science fiction franchise and the real-world space agency. The first one is about the International Space Station (ISS).

NASA has always loved Star Trek. The fictional universe inspired generations of young people to pursue science and technology careers, and among those who didn’t, it engendered a respect for space exploration that enables NASA to continue funding projects like the ISS and Mars exploration.

The Pizza Equation



We know that pie are square, and that’s very important when you’re talking about pizza pie. How do you get the most pizza for your dollar? By doing the math. Yes, you’ll save money by buying a larger pizza, but there are a few other things to consider, as our friends at Uproxx point out.
There are a couple downsides that the video fails to mention. Because when you’re feeding 20 people one pizza, you have to pick one flavor to satisfy everyone. Also, one pizza means you can’t cut the pizza into those satisfying wedges. (Well, you could, but they’d be thin, and you’d look cheap.)
Also, there’s no reason to buy more pizza than you need, unless you’re willing to eat leftovers for a while. But if you are, the extra slices won’t cost you all that much. Just remember to refrigerate it.

14 Rainbow Foods to Try

We’ve been told that we should eat a variety of brightly-colored foods for maximum nutrition. Maybe that’s why we're so drawn to rainbow-colored dishes, even if they're created with food coloring. Lucky for us, there are more treats that come in rainbow colors than ever before. Here are just a few of them, in a list I posted at mental_floss.
