Quantum mechanics is weird as hell, where the rules of the world you experience don’t apply. Even at distances a thousand kilometers apart, particles seem to be able to communicate with each other instantly, for example.
The Large Hadron Collider sits underground, spanning over five miles across beneath the bucolic suburbs of Geneva, Switzerland. This metal behemoth serves to try and understand the most basic building blocks of our universe. The question stands, then: if ghosts are real, shouldn’t the LHC have found them?
Last week, the touring cast from the percussion show STOMP stopped by CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, to whack old accelerator parts with drumsticks.
I’ve heard that Margaret Shilling was deaf. I’ve heard that she was unable to speak, to call for help. I’ve heard that she was playing hide-and-go-seek, and I’ve heard that she just wanted to die. She has been called Ohio’s most notorious ghost, the lost lady. Teenagers have prayed to her, broken into a building for…
If you weren’t already having nightmares about the “Halloween asteroid” taking a detour and crashing into New York City, well, this space rock just got a little spookier. First off, Spooky isn’t an asteroid; according to NASA, it’s a dead comet. Worse! It looks like a haunted human skull.
“There are no Halloween cocktails,” someone once said on Twitter, and they might be right. I tried to find a pumpkin one that didn’t taste like baby food and I failed—no pumpkin spice martini for you. Fear not, I wouldn’t leave you out in the cold: A Corpse Reviver is the perfect Halloween treat.
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire's creepiest moment happens so fast, most players probably miss it.
According to a 2005 Gallup poll, 37 percent of Americans believe in haunted houses, and according to a 2013 HuffPost/YouGov poll, 45 percent believe in ghosts. These are surprising numbers, but the next time you hear a spooky sound, don't call the Ghostbusters—get a scientist instead. Behind every shadow, poltergeist,…
Look, cocktails are great. You know it, I know it. But after you pour one and then it just sits there, being all delicious. How mouth-wateringly boring, right? Well, in honor of tonight's revelry, we've got a handful of morphing cocktails that bring a heavy dose of eye-candy. They should pair nicely with the heavy…
Oh God, what have I done? Oh that's right, I asked the wrong people to create an alternative line of sexy video game Halloween costumes. I brought this on myself, and now I'm bringing it to you.
And if you like what you see from the newest spooky supernatural flick from Joss Whedon's brilliant brain, you can watch the entire movie on demand on Vimeo for 5 bucks. A great deal for those of you who want more Whedon in your life. The tagline talks about this being a story about a girl who meets a boy but because…
Tonight millions of kid kids and grownup kids will dress up as all kinds of things. I for, one, am going with a group of friends as Muppets with a disco twist. What are you dressing up as?
When you think about it, all vehicles can be blood-curdling. They can be your best friend one minute, full of life and noise and joy, and when you turn off the ignition, it all dies. They sit lifeless and soulless, all spirit within them gone. Cold. And in that which moves but has no life, you've got a recipe for…
Dry ice is one of the most tried and true Halloween special effects. Simply drop a chunk into a liquid, then it begins to "boil" and emit a dense, creepy fog. Not only that, it's cheap, simple to use, and way easier to find than you probably thought. It also happens to be fantastic—and fantastically ghoulish—in a lot…
Tucked away in a small French village, this hotel is slowly rotting away. The wallpaper is peeling, the ceiling is falling down, and it looks like you might encounter a ghastly resident around any corner.
Ghostly faces, disembodied eyes, and haunting chandeliers can be found floating against trees and reflected in the water in small cities in Spain. But there's no need to call the Ghostbusters just yet.
Now that it's November, doesn't all that Halloween hoopla just seem so childish in retrospect? And some dad building a remote controlled ghost out of an RC quadrocopter to scare nieghborhood kids? Especially childish. No wait that's awesome.
Cyber-terrorists have already compromised the U.S. military's computers and caused blackouts in Brazil, according to tonight's 60 Minutes. Better stock up on canned goods and flashlight batteries for the next big cyber-attack!
