North Korea Used Camo Paint to Pass Off Civilian Planes as Military

Q&A With the Chicago Tribune Editors Who Put a Cat on Their Homepage

Earlier today, visitors to the Chicago Tribune's homepage were greeted not with traditional lead story or splash image.

HTML5 is a hungrier beast than that which came before it though, and sometimes wants a little more. Maybe 5MB or so. But that's where it should end.

What Really Happens When You Use Those Fancy Star Wars Cookie Cutters

Super detailed cookie cutters are cool. Cookies are awesome. What could possibly go wrong? This. No matter how intricate your fancy William Sonoma Star Wars cookie cutters may be, it seems you will be doomed to barely recognizable, vaguely brain-like monstrosities, as discovered by an unnamed Geekologie reader.
