Smart Kitties of the Day: Academic Kate Miltner recently received her Master’s Degree from the London School of Economics for her 98-page dissertation on the appeal of LOLcats, in which she argues that they ultimately enrich society and make us smarter. Here’s the Cliff’s Notes version:
Miltner breaks down LOLcats fans into three groups:
“Cheezfrenz” are LOLcats diehards and predominantly female. They are involved in I Can Has Cheezburger because it is “a place to be safe and kind” for people who “want to be nice, want to be happy, want to give support, want to smile.” Cheezfrenz know and connect through the correct use of LOLspeak (the grammar and spelling of LOLcats).
MemeGeeks, as Miltner calls them, make LOLcats that refer to more obscure memes, and are predominantly male. They play around with LOLcats on Reddit and Tumblr.
Casual Users are evenly split between males and females. They use email and Facebook to share LOLcats with friends and family as a way of staying in touch during the workday.
Ultimately, Miltner concludes that regardless of the type of user, “when it came to LOLcats, sharing and creating were often different means to the same end: making meaningful connections with others.”

It’s Caturday!: Happy Cinco de Mayo! Now whether you’re legitimately in a celebratory mood because of Mexico’s victory over the French 150 years ago, or you’re a college kid in the mood to get ripped because you’re in college, one can ascertain that this cat surely means business (albeit socially/ethnically inappropriate business).

Behind The Scenes at the National Air and Space Museum: A Blending of Photography and X-Ray:
An x-ray of Alan Shepard’s Apollo 14 spacesuit allows curators and conservators to “see” inside space clothing—a task that had previously been done by peering through the neck or the wrist with a flashlight.

RIP: Jean Giraud, better known as the influential French comic artist Moebius, passed away yesterday at the age of 73. He had been battling cancer for some time.
Giraud leaves behind a legacy spanning multiple generations: From his Harvey and Eisner Award-winning Western comic series Blueberry, through his acclaimed Silver Surfer miniseries, Parable, to the genre-defining conceptual artwork he contributed to such modern sci-fi and fantasy classics as Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element, The Abyss, and Willow.
Both Blade Runner and The Empire Strikes Back (as well as other Star Wars episodes) were also heavily influenced by Giraud’s unique style, the latter even featuring the artist’s design for the Imperial Probe Droid.
“We’ve lost two great artists,” said the French cultural minister, referring to Giraud and his alter ego Moebius. “Through his influence and his dazzling images, he made comic books the 9th art form that has stayed with me throughout my life.”
