Do you hate going to the dentist? Well, you really would’ve hated going to the dentist 100 years ago. I can already see the smoke rising from my mouth as a dry drill bores away at my molars. I probably would’ve taken rotting teeth, thank you very much.
Civil War had a lot of fun stuff in it, but its pitch-perfect introduction of the Black Panther is one of our absolute favorite parts. This new deleted scene featuring him and Black Widow having a loaded little chat is certainly no exception to the film’s rule that T’Challa basically has to be awesome in every scene…
Gulp. Just look at how ridiculous this thing looks. It’s a giant black sea slug known as a sea hare and it’s freaking monstrous. You don’t really hold it in your hand as much as the sea hare, which can grow up to over 3 feet long and weigh over 30 pounds, just swallows your entire arm. Brave Wilderness found the black…
Yesterday, news made the rounds that a team of Russian astronomers had detected an unusually strong signal emanating from a nearby sunlike star—a possible indication of an alien civilization. Here’s what the detection of this signal really means, and why it’s probably not ET.
In what’s being hailed a meteorological first, two back-to-back hurricanes are marching toward Hawaii, both of them threatening torrential rains and rip-roaring winds this week. The closer of the two, hurricane Madeline, could break a second meteorological record as the first hurricane to strike the Big Island since…
If you grew up in the 90s, you probably saw one of the legendary ITT Technical Institute commercials in the wee hours of the morning. Now, you’ll probably never see one again.
They haven’t found alien life out there yet, but following the first successful in-space DNA sequencing, astronauts have a better way to look for it.
The housing situation has gotten so ridiculous in Palo Alto, the original home of Facebook and Google, that there’s a studio up for sale for a cool $1.3 million dollars. Bloomberg says that’s totally normal. Good luck using your phone in your stupid overpriced studio, because cell service is a total shit show.
Natalie Portman was on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the host asked if her five-year-old son had seen her in Star Wars. It turns out she has a pretty good reason for not showing her children the prequel trilogy, and it has nothing to do with Anakin’s terrible “I hate sand” speech.
If you woke up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night yesterday, panicked that there wasn’t enough time left this summer to float around on a giant six-feet long inflatable cockroach, do not worry. There is still plenty of time to disgust everyone at the beach or local your pool with this disturbingly life-like…
The joy of the automobile is in the harmony of form and function—or, in the case of our old pal the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am, to just stick a bunch of fake vents and other junk on a Tesla and call it a day.
Phobos just can’t catch a break. Not only is Mars’ lumpy, crusted-over dust bunny of a moon destined to be ripped to pieces in ten million years, it seems the poor thing can’t stop punching itself.
Bing, Microsoft’s version of Google, just learned the hard way that fucking up your translation service is a bad way to win friends on the internet.
A few months ago, connected speaker maven Sonos said it was working on bringing voice control to its speakers. Today, Sonos is announcing a long-term relationship with Amazon whereby you’ll be able to control your Sonos speakers from your Amazon Echo. This is just awesome news.
These days all you need to recreate Hollywood-caliber visual effects is a fast PC and some expensive 3D software. But if you want to try your hand at recreating old-school special effects, find yourself a 3D printer, make a miniature version of Ghostbusters’ Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and go to town with a blowtorch.
Here’s a bit of schadenfreude for those of us who can’t afford to breathe in New York’s Upper West Side: A water main break last night created a sinkhole, and that sinkhole swallow an entire BMW worth around $55,000*.
Snapchat made its name as the ephemeral social app, where your photos are lost forever after a few seconds of looking at them. But it’s not at all difficult to save your Snapchats for posterity. Here’s how to keep any images you send or receive and back them up in the cloud.
When farmers spray their crops with pesticides and other treatments to help ensure their survival, 98 percent of those chemicals bounce right off the plants and end up in the groundwater as pollution. It’s a waste, and harmful to the environment, so researchers at MIT came up with a cheap but effective way to instead…
