Future Martian President Elon Musk is a businessman and a capitalist, but ostensibly one with his eye on the future. SpaceX is trying to make commercial space travel not only possible but cheap. Tesla seeks to end our over-reliance on gasoline through electric cars. So why is he on Twitter making nice with oil tycoon…
Last year we heard that Fox had ditched Hellfire and begun development of a new X-Men TV show from Matt Nix. But even though Nix has been talking about his series for ages, it’s only just been given a pilot order.
In December, we learned that xoJane’s legendary founder, Jane Pratt, was leaving the company and that the famously controversial personal essay hub would fold into InStyle, signaling the end times for the overly confessional hate-read. (Hearst’s The Mix, more or less cut from the same cloth as xoJane, quietly died…
If you were asked to point to the trench that housed the first Death Star’s exhaust port, where would you point? If you pointed at the big obvious seam running along the Death Star’s equator, I am sorry, but you are wrong.

Following a successful Falcon 9 launch-and-barge-landing in California this month, SpaceX is now looking to get back in the swing of regular flight. But while the company’s next two flights seem fairly routine on the surface, they’re going to be historic in one very important aspect.
Shrek is a good and fun movie for kids because it follows a fun ogre with goofy sidekicks all through Shrek’s journey to find love. Shrek is a great and fantastically funny for adults because it never stops skewering the classic movies we once watched as kids.
Staring at your computer screen in the dead of night can be bad for you, if only because it can also keep you up later than expected. Now, Apple is finally releasing a feature on macOS that will save your precious pupils from the tyranny of blue light.
What’s better than one set of string lights for $5? Two sets of string lights for $5. Use the code BP526S4Y and get two strands of copper string lights, in any color. Now that’s a bright deal (sorry).

You won’t want to actually kick it around without wearing steel-toed shoes, but Russian carpenter Vladimir Zhilenko makes turning a bunch of wooden pentagons into a perfectly-round soccer ball look incredibly easy.
