Screen Shot 2015-07-04 at 12.11.12 PM

Passing on the Comic-Con crowds that descend on San Diego (and the 405 traffic to get there) but still feel like getting your geek on? Los Angeles might not have the most comic shops per capita (a source at Diamond Distributors says that honor goes to, believe it or not, Las Vegas), but it does have a high concentration of some of the best shops. And L.A. offers something that no other city can in its comic shops: the chance that you’ll bump into the real-life the Human Torch, Nick Fury or Luke Skywalker (or at least the stars who play them on the screen).

HERE are 10 great places to capture some of that San Diego Comic-Con experience without leaving Los Angeles.

It was an all-star lineup that marked the only guest appearances on the final Late Show with David Letterman. Here, in his final list, are the “Top 10 things I’ve always wanted to say to Dave:”

10. Alec Baldwin: “Of all the talk shows, yours is the most geographically convenient to my home.”

9. Barbara Walters: “Did you know you wear the same cologne as Muammar Qaddafi?”

8. Steve Martin: Your extensive plastic surgery was a necessity…and a mistake.”

7. Jerry Seinfeld: “I have no idea what I’ll do when you go off the air. You know what, I just thought of something: I’ll be fine.”

6. Jim Carrey: “Honestly Dave, I’ve always found you to be a bit of an over-actor.” (He gesticulated wildly).

5. Chris Rock: “I’m just glad your show is being given to another white guy.” (Dave: “You know, I had nothing to do with that.”)

4. Julia Louis-Dreyfus: “Thanks for letting me take part in another hugely disappointing series finale.” (Seinfeld smirks). (Dave: “I had nothing to do with that either.”)

3. Peyton Manning: “Dave, you are to comedy what I am to comedy.”

2. Tina Fey: “Thanks for finally proving men can be funny.”

1. Bill Murray: “Dave, I’ll never have the money I owe you.”

The 25 Best Inventions of 2014

Welcome to TIME’s annual round-up of the best inventions making the world better, smarter and—in some cases—a little more fun. Check out the list HERE.

The Real-Life Hoverboard

15_best_inventions

The Hendo Hoverboard ($10,000)—a type of skateboard that levitates like a magic carpet—had been a pipe dream since its fictional debut in 1989’s Back to the Future Part II. Now California-based tech firm Hendo has built the real thing.

Granted, there are caveats. Hendo’s hoverboard can float only an inch or so above the ground, and even then only over conductive material like copper or aluminum. Just 10 are being made to order (so far). And battery life is 15 minutes—barely enough time to zoom past your enemies à la Marty McFly.

But the technology that powers it could be revolutionary. Using the $450,000-plus it raised on Kickstarter, Hendo founders Jill and Greg Henderson plan to develop magnetic “hovering” tech to stabilize buildings during earthquakes, protect valuable works of art and more. “The hoverboard is the first step to bringing this technology to the world,” says Greg.
