Motorcyclist misses his superman seat grab trick and flies into the air

Whoa. This is crazy. A motorcyclist jumped off a ramp and missed his grab of the motorcycle seat for the superman seat grab trick and ended up spinning out of control in the air.

Why David Fincher might be the best director in Hollywood today

David Fincher is one of the best directors in Hollywood and if you disagree, you need new eyeballs.

Unbelievably realistic face is actually completely computer generated

The only thing that I think that doesn't look 'human' about Ed, this computer generated human head designed by Chris Jones using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita, is his ears.

I wish these endurance tests to buy a pickup truck were real

It doesn't matter how much money you have. If you are not tough enough, you can't afford this car.

A pretty good one. » 10/01/14 10:50pm Yesterday 10:50pm

Fire, Water, Molecular Bonds: The Science Behind Your Wrinkled Clothes

Wrinkles are as much a part of life as death, taxes, and long lines at the DMV. While annoyingly rumpled shirts and slacks might be the least depressing kind of wrinkles (compared, you know, to the crow's feet around your eyes, marking the slow march towards the inevitable void), they may also be the most irritating. » 10/01/14 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm
