PSA: Dtoid chat is now open for business

A while back, we introduced a beta chat room for our Huge members to serve as a replacement for what used to be known as Outer Heaven (RIP). Well, chat is back and open to all! Just click the little red chat bubble at the top center of the screen (*points* it's right there), login, and start yapping. Have fun, kids!

Friday Night Fights: Bill is dead

Welcome to another exciting edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights! As you may have gathered from the title, Bill is dead, which makes me the new Bill. Well, at least until he resurrects next week like the premature Jesus he is, anyway. But in the meantime, you're stuck with me. Only I don't remember how this is supposed to work, so... Boners?
