No doubt you’re wanting to plan a fireworks display this weekend to honor the most amazing country in North America and its awesome political leaders. Here’s where you can celebrate Happy Canada Day the way it was meant to be celebrated!
Barack Obama, Elliot’s missing three days, Mamie Gummer, abduction, Craig Robinson, and a headshot—there is a ton to unpack in the trailer for Mr. Robot season two. We just can’t wait.
Need somewhere to escape to this year? Easy. Just pick a US National Park, any US National Park. From canyons to glaciers to valleys to lakes and everything in between, this here country has so many different textures that it’s a neat reminder in how different this here planet can be.
America’s roads and bridges are in horrible shape. We could fix them up and provide lots of jobs in the process. But we won’t!
The American government is officially putting a giant vote of confidence behind self-driving cars. And the cash to back it up.
Mr. Robot is a dark show kinda uncharacteristic for USA. After all, it’s same network that brought us breezy comedy-mysteries like Monk and Psych. Which were great! But Colony, the decades-old channel’s upcoming series, could continue down USA’s new path of somewhat twisted genre TV. I watched the pilot and it’s…
So far, New York Comic Con has been a glorious amalgam of my favorite things: Pokémon cosplayers, convention center pretzels, unbridled fandom, and Mr. Robot. The techno thriller’s cast and creator took to the stage for a panel Friday afternoon, where we learned season two will be super dark, so BE READY FOR SEASON 1…
The confederate flag is a symbol of hatred and it’s nice that it’s going away. But CGP Grey examines in this video explainer how the confederate flag we know and hate wasn’t actually the national flag of the Confederate States of America. They had many national flags but the flag we’re banning was never it.
These are the first full photos of the all-new 2016 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin, perhaps the first bike to genuinely live up to the adventure motorcycle’s potential. Big dirt bike? Yep, and not much more.
Ever contemplated going to war with America, but been thwarted when the Great Satan switched off your access to its navigation satellites? That’s potentially a real problem for China and Russia, but the real victor in this navigational arms race might be you; it’s improving the quality of location data on your phone…
Last September, I boarded a plane to Denmark. It was the start of a seven and a half month, round-the-world adventure. Yesterday at 10:05am, I landed at LAX. Man, this place is weird.
Stereotypes today are typically outdated and vaguely racist but when harmless, they can be quite comical. Like these quick hitter animations about what the USA thinks of Europe and vice versa and what different parts of Europe thinks about the other parts. They're a lot of fun to watch.
The U.S. Air Force's top secret X-37B Space Plane made a not-so-secret return to Earth this morning, landing at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California after an impressive 674 days in orbit.
Vocativ analyzed over 600 presidential speeches in US history, measuring syllables and keeping track of word and sentence count to determine the Flesch-Kincaid reading level of each speech. In the beginning, presidential speeches were at the level of a PhD, now it's at the reading comprehension of a 7th grader.
The Navy is aiming to add its new unmanned swarm boats to the fleet within a year, and a video released by the Office of Naval Research shows what an asset these empty vessels will be.
Let's celebrate the USA on July 4th! How big does the celebration go across America? Across the 50 states, duh. The 48 contiguous, Alaska and Hawaii. But what about Washington DC? And the Indian territories? Puerto Rico? Guam? The Virgin Islands? And let's not get into places you've never heard of like Johnston Atoll…
If Captain America was a realistic representation of the United States of America instead of some well groomed side part and perfectly pectoral'd ideal of a man, well, he'd be much fatter, much dumber and much more wasteful.
The most popular brands in America are not always the largest companies making the most revenue. Brands that you know, stores that you go to and places that you associate with some states get replaced by faceless monoliths who basically repurpose oil, energy, technology, other people's money, etc. into more money.
Roadtrippers has a fun little map that translates the setting of the mythical world of Westeros from Game of Thrones to the United States of America. Kings Landing becomes Washington DC, Winterfell becomes Detroit and other famous castles and kingsdoms get scattered across America.
It's a little unfair that giant states with tiny populations get so much room for such few people. I mean, especially since states on the east coast are living on top of each other in cramped borders. So let's change that with a fun little thought exercise and a spin on how to look at the map of United States: what if…
