If you’re a foreigner traveling into or out of the United States, US Customs and Border Protection wants to see your social media accounts. If my Twitter account is any indication, they are in for a dumb, boring time.
The natural gas leak at Aliso Canyon earlier this year was already one of the worst environmental disasters in US history. Several months later, however, it has now gained the additional distinction of being the first industrial methane point-source visible from outer space.
ATM skimmers are so successful is because they’re nearly impossible to catch. They’re cheap and easy to make and just slide onto anything you might use to swipe a card, stealing your information in the process. They’re also part of the reason you have to use that annoying chip card that takes forever to process.
The final episode of Game of Thrones’ sixth season airs this Sunday night, and while HBO may not trust us with a 10-word, vague-to-the-point-of-meaningless synopsis of the show, that doesn’t mean we can’t make a few educated guesses of our own.
Ha! I trapped the drink you ordered in a weird ice sphere. Bet you weren’t expecting that. Don’t even try melting it with your tongue or some shit, because I also lit the glass on fire.
Standard remedies for a hangover are generally limited to greasy food, a strong cup of coffee, or more booze. Order those mozzarella sticks from bed, because we’ve got the other two covered. You can thank us later.
New evidence shows that insects were using camouflage to hide from their predators as many as 100 million years ago—and wow did these ancient bugs ever employ some strange forms of deception.
Baby sea turtles don’t really need our help being adorable, but remarkably, scientists have figured out a way to make the tiny shelled reptiles even more mind-numbingly cute: by hypnotizing them.
Games exclusivity is common place for consoles. Master Chief is on Xbox and Nathan Drake is on PS4. That’s the way it is. But for VR, many fans and developers want things to be more open, so gamers can able games on any headset they want. Today, Oculus’ latest update removes a perviously controversial DRM rule, making…
Winter is coming, but the Brexit is already here—the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union. Economists are worried. Scientists are worried. Adam from Manchester is worried, and also a complete buffoon. But so are Game of Thrones fans, as the show films across the EU. Good news, though: the show will be fine.
The tiny bathtub shower crammed into your equally tiny apartment probably feels like a claustrophobic nightmare every morning. But the Curvi’s an easy way to make it feel larger, spacious, and almost luxurious—without having to knock down walls or perform any kind of renovation.
For two years, researchers have been farming a series of crops in Martian and lunar soils. Now, a vegetable from the garden is finally about to get its first taste test. It will be a radish.
I’m usually cynical about the chicken-little claims that a given Olympics is going to be a disaster. Biennially, everyone spends the run-up to the games fretting, and then the games go off largely hitchless. (And then the disaster strikes as the mountain of debt.) But Rio de Janeiro sure is doing its damndest to prove…
I don’t know why the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra used an autocorrect joke as a vehicle to promote their brand, but you know what? At least it’s not a horrifying ad for breast augmentation.
After a prolonged battle with San Francisco’s NIMBY empire, George Lucas announced two years ago that he would take his giant filmmaking museum project to the friendlier shores of Chicago. Now, after yet another vicious battle with Chicago’s NIMBYs, he’s abandoning his plans there, too. You’d think he was trying to…
Dirt is boring. Soil isn’t fun. Who cares what’s happening down there. So I thought. Josh Williams changed my mind with his SoilCam, a waterproof scanner that’s controlled by a Raspberry Pi. He places it in the dirt so we can see everything that’s happening underground. It’s so alive.
Apple hasn’t updated its Thunderbolt display in five years, and now it won’t be selling it either.
