How did you celebrate Kurt Vonnegut's birthday? With a Kilgore Trout-themed party?

Or maybe you turned one of his fictional towns into a real one, a la Orhan Pamuk?

Although, a real-life invisibility cloak would have really taken the cake.

After that invention, it makes the notion of robots on the moon slightly out-dated.

What is more surprising is the end of the Rushdie-le Carre beef.

Let's hope something similar never happens in the science world, particularly between Sacks and Tesla.

Though we're sure those scientists definitely fit Sonia Sotomayer's definition of a "career."

But if you're a professional Bond girl, that may be up for debate.
