Death was heavy on our minds this week — we explored the US's largest mass grave and watched Jar Jar's life end in a never-before-seen twist. Oh, and there's a Pandora for pornography now. Thanks, internet!
It's hard to imagine that it's been only three years since the original iPad came out, since tabletswere a part of our daily world. Sure there were tablet computers before, but there weren't tabletsthe way we know and use them today. And while the iPad changed personal computing forever, it has remained mostly unchanged—especially on the outside. That is, until now.
This year, after having leaked more than a shot-up sieve, the long-awaited Nexus 5 is here with Android 4.4 (KitKat) in tow. It's most definitely one of the best phones you can buy, even if it doesn't quite meet its inflated expectations.
We loved the Kindle Fire HDX. It's faux-Android wrapped up in a budget body so beautiful you'll learn to stop worrying and love the forked OS. Now its big brother, the HDX 8.9, is here with the same flavor of lovely in a stretched-out package.
It's a place where few living New Yorkers have ever set foot, but nearly a million dead ones reside: Hart Island, the United States' largest mass grave, which has been closed to the public for 35 years. It is difficult to visit and off-limits to photographers. But that may be about to change, as a debate roils over the city's treatment of the unclaimed dead. Never heard of Hart? You're not alone—and that's part of the problem.
After centuries of medical science I thought doctors knew every single bit of the human body. Incredibly enough, ScienceDaily reports on the discovery of a new body element called the anterolateral ligament, which apparently has been hiding all this time in our knees.
This is one of the most satisfying things I've seen in a long time: watch Jar-Jar Binks—the biggest assclown in the galaxy far far away—getting killed in a deleted Star Wars scene that has been perfectly edited by fans.* Again. And again. So satisfying.
PornIQ, a new website billing itself as the Pandora of streaming smut, has done for self-love what a dozen other services have done for music. It was only a matter of time.
What was supposed to be a nice, heartwarming picture of four Chinese government officials visiting an elderly woman in a sign of respect and caring for the people and giving back and all that ended up being another Photoshop nightmare for China where three giant men plus a floating disappearing half man creepily hover over a miniature-sized old woman. Man, someone needs to teach China how to use Photoshop.
This ridiculously awesome man made version of Thor's hammer Mjölnir is so impressive that even our most Thor-like human Chris Hemsworth would have trouble swinging it around. Though it's not quite the weight of 300 billion elephants, it's the closest thing to Mjölnir on Earth. That's because it's made from 10 separate pieces of steel alloyed with chromium and molybdenum. At its heaviest, it can weigh over 200 pounds.
Ever wonder what the best time is to drink your coffee? You probably know it is not a good idea to drink part of your daily dose of caffeine in the afternoon. Especially for those who have problems sleeping. But, do you ever drink your coffee and feel like it just didn't work?
