Sometimes people make predictions and they’re terribly wrong, but every once in a while an oracle appears with a prophecy that predicts the future. Joel Watson, a cartoonist, is today’s oracle.

The guys at FiftyThree can’t catch a break. First Facebook named its biggest and best app Paper, copying the name of FiftyThree’s earlier iPad drawing app, and now Apple has named its new stylus a Pencil, just like the iPad accessory FiftyThree already sells.
We reached out to the company, which is growing increasingly reliant on hardware sales of its Pencil for its income, to ask how it will react to Apple’s new launch. The answer is equivocal, as it neither derides nor entirely welcomes the Apple Pencil:
Every Pencil needs Paper. We’re excited to launch the all-new Paper on iPhone and iPad tomorrow, after which creative thinkers everywhere will see their phones and their ideas in a new light. We believe pen-and-touch input is the…

As we all learned from Game of Thrones (and definitely not sitting through high school history), when there’s a chance to sit on a throne and rule a kingdom, everybody who can sit seemingly wants to be king and queen, even if it means fighting your family members for the chance. Here’s a really fun look at the history of the British Royal Family, from 1066 until today. It plays out like a comedy.
