Around 9:30pm last night, residents of Northern California began reporting bright lights in the sky that could be seen as far away as Las Vegas. So far no one has any idea what they were.
What a perfect picture. A M1 Abrams tank is seen frozen in time as it blasts out its 120mm gun, shooting out a giant fireball that looks more like a fire cloud than anything else. It’s funny because the rest of the picture seems so calm but that giant boulder of fire is anything but.
Need to have fun on a boring summer day? Get a bunch of tennis balls, drench ‘em in gasoline, put some wet gloves on and then torch the balls. You can throw fireballs, play tennis with balls that have a super long fire trail, punch ‘em, kick ‘em and do whatever your imagination wants with real life fireballs.

If you've been looking for a way to spice up your regular soccer game, take a cue from these East Java footballers. They light a coconut on fire, douse all the players in salt and non-flammable spices, say a prayer, and start playing football. Take that, everyone who's ever said you shouldn't play with fire.
Firefighters are awesome, but it doesn't change the fact that the job puts their lives on the line. This Wi-Fi ball, courtesy of Intel, has sensors built-in that, if thrown into a burning building, could keep our bravest out of harm's way.

When it comes to comet impacts, the denizens of Earth may be living on borrowed time.
