Movie theater owners have been caught routinely running 2D movies through dark 3D lenses, ruining the quality. And they refuse to talk about the apparently widespread problem. As if you needed another reason to skip the overpriced, advertising laden cinema.

Speculation is rampant that badass Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin got his ass beat in a Judo match after he appeared in public today with a black eye covered with lots of makeup. He definitely won, though. [AFP]
