Life's Enduring Mysteries




Who would win a zombie cage match between these two?
What does Kim Kardashian actually do? I saw she was going to be on with Leno this week, but what does she do? Is she an actor or a singer or a writer or...what?

Then this year, it's all super-dark underground sets and a mad sequence of all the dead characters from seasons past. I feel frustration--both with J.J. Abrams and with myself. We should both be better than this...
