Driving in Los Angeles somehow looks awesome in this time lapse

I hate driving, I really do. I especially hate driving in Los Angeles.

Seeing cast iron skillets get made makes me want to cook

Cineastas spent some time with Mike Whitehead and Finex Cast Iron Cookware Co. to give a glimpse of how Finex is trying to reinvent something that has existed for thousands of years: cast iron.

Burger King's all-black burger looks absolutely disgusting in real life

To no one's surprise, Burger King's all black burger looks like a disgusting turd in real life. Actually, it might be even worse than some turds. It looks like it tastes like ash.

The Internet's Ode to Music from Saharan Cellphones

Constant access to Wi-Fi and LTE make it supremely easy for us to swap songs with each other. More often than that, we swap URLs.

This is the weirdest and most beautiful time lapse I've ever seen

This is not your usual eye-candy time lapse of a gorgeous landscape. This one—created by Jeff Frost—is different. Speaks directly to the feelings. It's sometimes creepy, violent, and weird.

It used to be that, when you wanted to slap someone with a lawsuit, you'd have to hunt them down the old-fashioned way—on foot, just like mom used to do.
