This San Francisco sunset makes it look like the apocalypse is here

Welcome to our post-apocalyptic world. You can find the last remaining civilization in San Francisco. Or something like that. It's startling how much this simple time lapse of a San Francisco sunset makes it look like nuclear bombs have gone off and destroyed everything we know. But nope, just a normal sunset in the… » 4/03/15 12:30am 4/03/15 12:30am

The Best of Cloud-to-Butt, the Only Browser Add-On You Ever Truly Need

Back in August we happened upon what quickly became our favorite browser extension: Cloud to Butt Plus. And now that we've had a good six months to live in a world where every instance of "cloud" on the internet is replaced with the word "butt," we've amassed quite a collection of clippings. It is glorious to behold. » 2/16/15 12:15pm 2/16/15 12:15pm

Watch different layers of clouds move in completely different directions

This is cool. A time lapse, aptly named Highway in the Sky by the guy who filmed it, shows how different layers of clouds in the same sky can actually move in completely different directions. It's like seeing clouds respect different flows of traffic. It's like seeing multiple skies in one. It's like staring at a… » 2/13/15 9:51pm 2/13/15 9:51pm

If You Want a 100% Sunny Wedding Day You Can Pay $150k to Explode Clouds

This sounds fake as hell but it does have some scientific backup: A luxury travel company is offering a $150,000 cloud-killing package to guarantee sunny wedding days in the south of France. Pilots will consult with meteorologists to fly planes near the ceremony space three weeks leading up to the wedding. The planes… » 1/31/15 11:00am 1/31/15 11:00am

Shooting Challenge: Crazy Things You See In Clouds

A Chrome Extension That Replaces "Cloud" With "Butts" Wins Everything

Earlier today, we asked you to tell us about all your favorite Chrome extensions. And while the ultimate winners will be revealed at a later date, Kinja user pacguy has introduced us to one sparkling diamond of an extension that, frankly, would be an injustice to keep hidden. Because friends, you need to install Cloud… » 8/04/14 1:37pm 8/04/14 1:37pm

Amazing cloud waves herald the alien invasion apocalypse

Looking at these time-lapse videos of Undulatus asperatus—"a cloud formation proposed as separate cloud classification in 2009"—look like the ocean's surface in a stormy day as seen from under the water. They also look like those scenes in sci-fi movies when something really bad is coming to kill us all from the sky. » 7/11/14 7:12pm 7/11/14 7:12pm

Watch a massive thunderstorm form in this timelapse

Man, this looks like some end of the world type weather. It's the type of thunderstorm I'd see in a movie and think the CGI was too fake. It's the type of supercell I'd see in real life and think it's all over for everybody. It remind us how small we are, how incredible (and scary!) nature can be and how damn cool it… » 5/19/14 8:01pm 5/19/14 8:01pm

Every mountain needs to have a wonderful cloud bridge like this

The problem with building man made structures in natural wonders like mountain ranges is that they can sore your eyes pretty quickly. Some parts of the world should be left untouched! But imagine a bridge like this one, designed to look like a cloud, on top of a few mountains. The views would be absolutely… » 11/06/13 11:13pm 11/06/13 11:13pm

I Can't Believe This Alien Orange Bubble Sky Actually Appeared on Earth

The sky is blue! Only when it's not gray. Or purple. Or red. Or orange. The clouds are white! Only when they're not gray. Or even darker than that. Basically, the clouds and sky can be anything. But can the sky be a creamsicle orange bubbly thing that looks like we're on an alien planet? Apparently so. » 7/30/13 8:00pm 7/30/13 8:00pm
