This guy using a wheel barrow to do skateboard tricks is so hilarious

These stunning trailers for an animation short left me craving for more

I really like these two trailers from Tant de Forêts—a short film by France-based directors Burcu Sankur and Geoffrey Godet.

This awesome roadster should be the new Batmobile

The new Batmobile for Batman v Superman is cool, but I wish we could go back to something lighter, less militaristic, and a lot cooler.

Humans' Inherent Curiosity Stems From a Long, Protracted Childhood

Curiosity is one of our most basic traits and we have a lot to thank for it. Without the primal urge to always want to see what lies over the next hill, or the other the ocean, or beyond the confines of our atmosphere, humans would still be living—quite literally—in the stone age. In Curious: The Desire to Know and… » 10/24/14 4:30pm Today 4:30pm
