The Battle of the Bastards in Game of Thrones was one of the best battle sequences seen in TV or even film and a lot of it had to do with the set up and the show’s characters and how Game of Thrones incorporated stunning practical effects. But even more probably had to do with how excellent the special effects were.…
Do you know what a sleeping great white shark looks like? It’s never been seen before. Until now. A robotic submersible captured the first-ever footage of a great white taking a nap, and you can see it innocently catch some zzzs with its mouth hanging wide open.

I don’t know how these tiny dancers got trapped inside this spinning zoetrope but it’s the only explanation I can come up with for this insane light animation. Their movements are so smooth, and the shining light captures the grace of their dance so well that I’m sure some sort of magic has to be at play here.
Holy. Shit. This video shows the end of a car chase in northeast Houston and it’s totally bananas. The suspect tries to outrun a helicopter in an open field, but while making a break for it, he gets pummeled by a police SUV. Somehow, he bounces off the car, gets back up, and manages to keep on running. At this point,…
Just the presence of streetlights can deter criminal behavior. A South Philadelphia neighborhood is trying something a little more innovative than that—using neon-lit murals to brighten the sidewalk and turn the area into a destination.

Today the world was introduced to the first major redesign of the Porsche Panamera. Nice smooth lines front to back, with a retractable spoiler like a freaking badass robotic razor blade.
Sporting a Jansport backpack and full Spider-Man suit, the webslinger is riding the back of a truck in a brand new series of photos from the set of Spider-Man Homecoming.
Food is one of the pieces of common ground that people of all cultures share. Food is the one language we’re all forced to speak. And then there’s Steve1989 MREinfo. He just likes to eat really old military rations. It’s kind of his thing.
About six months ago, just as Flint began to acknowledge its lead crisis, a water testing expert from an EPA task force predicted that “every major city east of the Mississippi” was underestimating lead levels in their water. A big report from the NRDC now confirms that about 18 million Americans are living with lead…
The ploy of the rechargeable, Blu PLUS+ vape is obvious: It looks like a cigarette and the charging case resembles a pack. “It’s just like real smoking!” it seems to beg of your disbelief. It isn’t. But that should be obvious. And it’s far from the biggest problem with the Blu PLUS+.
What do you do if you get busted for pirating a terrible Adam Sandler movie? Deny it. That seems to be the lesson of a recently dismissed federal case, which raises the burden of proof that copyright owner must meet in order to hold you accountable for infringement.

Way back in 2008 BMW revealed an especially outlandish concept car called the GINA Light Visionary Model that traded metal body panels for a flexible lycra-like fabric wrapped around the vehicle.
