Will Wolverine go gangnam style? What do the Sith carry on camping trips? What towed the space shuttle across the 405? Find out in this week's geek bits...
Wolverine, Gangnam Style [via Twitter via Splash Page]
No, this is not photoshopped. Korean pop sensation PSY showed up at the set of The Wolverine, and convinced Hugh Jackman to go "gangnam style."
Does this make Hugh Jackman more or less cool?

Oh Myyy...George Takei Has a New Book
George Takei has gone from an actor who played a secondary role on Star Trek to a pop culture sensation all his own with his appearances on The Howard Stern Show. Since then, he's gained fame online through his engagement with the fans, and his Facebook page which has become the place to find funny, geeky images. Now he's created his own memoir of his experiences in a new ebook. The awesomely appropriate titled Oh Myyy is a collection of essays and reflections on his newfound fame.
Would you read Oh Myyy?

Space Shuttle Towed By Toyota Tundra [via Space.com]
The space shuttle Endeavour is on its way to its permanent home at the California Science Center, and NASA is driving it there in a modified transporter. Most of the trip, the transporter is towing it via four computer-controlled self-propelled vehicle, but Toyota sent a Tundra to tow the shuttle across a bridge on the 405 Los Angeles freeway. Normally, I would ignore such a blatant publicity stunt, but if it draws attention to the space program and (in my mind) the tragic grounding of the Space Shuttle fleet, I'm all for it. You can watch the video of it at Motortrend. Oh, and in case you're wondering how they did it? Jalopnik has you covered.

The Return of Agent Coulson [via Marvel via Slashfilm]
(WARNING: The following is a spoiler for the movie The Avengers, if you haven't seen it.) So the big news, if you haven't heard, is that S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Phil Coulson will be returning from the dead on the upcoming Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show. Not only will he be a regular character, but Clark Gregg is a co-writer on the show. No details, though, on how he'll be brought back, but I'd even take a zombie Coulson.
Are you excited about the return of Agent Coulson?

Hugh Jackman could wear a tutu and my wife would still think he's cool.
Not interested in the book.
And it's a great shame there will be no more shuttle launches. Yeah, it was a stunt, but bet it was quite a sight to see.

Yay, Coulson lives! That would make me want to watch the show. The shuttle stuff I find kind of depressing. If the shuttles had actually flown to their new locations it would have been cool, but getting driven around is as sad as going to the zoo and seeing all the animals caged up.
