The internet is a big place. There’s so much to read and watch and listen to that it can be overwhelming. We all have those stories that we start, get distracted for one reason or another, and promise ourselves we’ll finish later. Well, if any of those stories were on Paleofuture, here’s your second chance!
On these small islands, spindly rock formations are the only hints of the dark magic that transformed the original ships into monuments to angering the local mages.
The small fishing village of Astoria, Oregon, tried to scare off a pesky sea lion colony with a large fake mechanical orca. It was a cunning scheme, one that pitted the sly artifice of man against whatever it is sea lions have. But alas—nature won.
Wow, here's an absolutely stunning picture of a waterfall in Silver Falls, Oregon taken by photographer Jarred Decker. Only at first glance the picture doesn't even look like a shot of a waterfall. It looks more like you're peering into the soul of Godzilla.
I've never been to Portland, but I've seen the airport's carpet a million times. If you asked me to draw a picture of the delightfully geometric 80s design, I could probably do it with my eyes closed. How, you wonder? Hipsters. That's how.
When Oregon was granted statehood in 1859, it was the only state in the Union admitted with a constitution that forbade black people from living, working, or owning property there. It was illegal for black people even to move to the state until 1926. Oregon’s founding is part of the forgotten history of racism in the…
Before I was born, my mom lived in a treehouse in the Smoky Mountains and had a pet goat with one ear. His name was Van Goat. This was the late 70s, and even then, it was a unique lifestyle. But my how treehouse culture has evolved.
Wooden gadget accessories appeal to a certain kind of dweebus—I am that dweebus. And Oregon's Grove has been among the best for years. Now they're making iPad cases. Are they worth it?

Don't take your phone hiking—you're probably not going to get service and bears might eat it. Instead, find your way through the woods with Garmin's Oregon personal navigator.
At last, Matt Groening has revealed where The Simpsons is actually located: the actual Springfield is next to Eugene, Oregon, the state where Groening grew up. We went through the entire city to find what the most important locations look in real life.
Data centers are power-hungry, and Facebook's Oregon center in Crook County is no exception, using 28MW. While that's fairly standard, it has doubled the power use of the county.
