2. According to a sci-fi website, the upcoming Star Wars novel “Lords of the Sith,” will feature an Imperial official named Moff Mors, who is the first gay character in the history of Star Wars. If that’s the case, I guess I really misread C3PO and R2D2’s relationship.

10. Ferret ownership remains illegal in New York City after heath officials on Tuesday decided not to overturn a decades-long ban on keeping the animal as a pet. So remember, that’s not a ferret in your apartment, it’s just a freakishly long rat.
