On Monday, SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced that for the first time in history, it will be sending two private citizens on a trip around the Moon, in a Dragon 2 spacecraft. Because sending untrained civilians into space apparently isn’t enough of a gamble, Musk added that this mission would be taking place in Q4 of…
In case you hadn’t noticed, clowns are terrifying pretty much everyone. Clowns in the woods, clowns threatening schools—you get the idea. But this clown is straight out of a horror plot, hanging from the back of a vehicle like a true menace to society. We can’t run anymore. The clowns are mobile.
Hey buddo, I get it. Going to the dentist is no fun and fish need to eat. It’s logical—symbiotic even. And fish aren’t going to chastise you about cavities, or drinking too much coffee, or not flossing. And they won’t try to talk to you about classic cars while inside your mouth (looking at you, Dr. Gershon).
A 2,000-year-old orb of butter weighing 22-pounds was recently discovered in Co Meath, Ireland. Ancient butter experts believe that it was once offering to the gods. It’s also “theoretically... still edible” according to Andy Halpin, one of the Irish National Museums’ assistant keepers. Not a chance, Andy!
Here at Gizmodo, we like to welcome the holiday weekend with some chill, vacation-worthy content. Like this story about a dude in Thailand who almost got his dick bitten off by a massive python that crawled out of his toilet.
Statistically, flying is the safest way to travel and you practically have nothing to worry about, but here’s what happens when that flies out the window. Buckle up.
Last Saturday, Los Angeles was treated to the dramatic arrival of the Skyslide, a 45-foot glass tube that will soon allow civilization’s braver souls to peacefully glide along the exterior of the city’s US Bank Tower—1,000 feet in the air.
How could anyone go two years without noticing something this huge? Well, humans have been around for 200,000. Bristle worms and their polychaete brothers have survived five mass extinctions.
Climbing something this high is concerning to begin with, but intentionally doing it without safety equipment borders on suicidal.
Everything is usually way cooler in slow-motion. An amazing football catch, a kick-ass movie fight scene, a gravity-defying skateboard trick—but apparently that logic doesn’t apply to some dude sticking his tongue in a loaded mouse trap. If you don’t cringe in horror when watching this, then you’re not human.
I remember the exact place where they were kept. They hovered together, trapped tightly between two wood slabs until they could be freed. I tried to ignore them, but they called out to me, over and over, in a deep low-pitched moan. Aliiiiiiiiissa. Aliiiiiiiiiissa.
Everybody is so excited because NASA has confirmed that there is water on Mars. Really, no kidding, it is flowing right now somewhere on the Red Planet. The hilarious internet reacted to this important scientific news immediately, flooding Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, VK, Sina Weibo, and so on with witty images,…
A game like this booted up on a dark night when you’re completely alone seems like a sure-fire way to shit your pants.
This is Momotaro, a cat whose documented response to unwanted food is a universal expression of "No. No. No. No. No." This cat has ruined my allegiance to the Nope Octopus.
I have had a teensy, torn bit of paper taped over the camera of my MacBook Air for years now because even before I knew the FBI could activate that thing without the indicator light, it always bugged me out that someone might be secretly snooping. The teensy, torn bit of paper looks janky as hell, but it works. …
No amount of oohing, aahing or drooling can convince HTC to bring this 480x800 monster to American shores, according to the Taiwanese company. That's a shame, because it was looking pretty good. The company passed the news on through Twitter, which is the corporate equivalent of breaking up with your girlfriend with a…
