If You’re a Nerd, This Is the Best Web Site on the Internet Right Now

"Congressional investigators seeking evidence of an improper relationship between Trask Industries and the Nixon White House are stymied when they discover that 18½ minutes of a meeting between Bolivar Trask and President Nixon have been completely erased." 20th Century Fox

As long as you're an X-Men fan

The next installment in the X-Men franchise, Days of Future Past, is close at hand — and that means the hype machine is being kicked into eighth gear. Twentieth Century Fox’s latest gambit is 25Moments.com, a “fictional experience from the world of X-Men.” The micro-site is intended to set the stage for the new film, in which various X-people travel through time to find themselves (literally). The result is an alternate history lesson in which President Nixon chills with giant killer robots and babies are born made of metal thanks to the Chernobyl disaster. Is it a tedious, viral click-through? Yes. Is it amazing? Also yes. Here’s a closer look at some of the best shots from the site.

“During a pivotal moment in the Cold War, missiles launched near Cuba allegedly malfunction due to an unidentified group with unexplained powers.” 20th Century Fox
“The mutant known as Magneto is implicated in the assassination of John F. Kennedy by a witness on the grassy knoll. Magneto denies direct involvement, sparking the ‘Free Magneto’ movement.” 20th Century Fox
“The Chernobyl nuclear power plant melts down, causing a spike in premature mutant expressions for generations.” 20th Century Fox
