All good things must come to an end—and bad things, too. Bitcoin has had a hell of a ride over the last year, but that all seems to be over as almost 60 percent of its value has vanished in the last month. Enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market is low as Bitcoin dropped below $8,000 for the first time since November.
Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. These three words are the bane of Bitcoiners’ existence. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts use the acronym FUD to describe any negativity that might be swirling around the market that causes prices to drop. And the FUD was strong this week, when the whole cryptocurrency ecosphere got fucked.
The price of bitcoin plunged on Friday, continuing a steady downward spiral that’s lasted all week. True believers are shrugging it off, but with its newfound notoriety, a lot of latecomers are feeling some pain. All but two of the top 100 cryptocurrencies were significantly down this morning.
We’re hitting a sort of news singularity with Bitcoin at this point. The rush to report price changes can’t keep pace with the reality.

Self-driving cars will probably make the world a better place—someday—when they eliminate the likelihood of injuries in crashes. Today, is not that day.
You obviously need to strap down the luggage you put on the roof of your car, but as this crash test footage from Switzerland’s Dynamic Test Center shows, you might also want to strap down the bags in the back of your station wagon. In an impact, pieces of luggage becomes flying missiles targeted at the vehicle’s…
We’ve all had the occasional shopping cart fender bender while coming around a blind corner at the end of an aisle. But here’s what would happen if you were trying to speed through a grocery store at 72 miles per hour, got distracted by a free sample, and then slammed your cart head-on into a concrete wall.
At least 16 people are dead after a hot air balloon caught on fire and crashed into a pasture in Texas, according to the Associated Press.
Last Tuesday, Voss, Norway-native Jon Gjerde decided to strap himself to a gigantic kite and go zipping through the air like some sort of very ugly bird. The 51-year-old is no stranger to hang gliding. He is, in fact, a world champion in the sport. But after this particular outing he’s lucky to be alive.
Another Tesla vehicle crashed while operating in Autopilot mode, according to the car’s driver. The latest crash occurred on July 1st, just two days after US regulators announced they were investigating the first fatality in a wreck involving a car in self-driving mode.
Few things are more dangerous in racing than your car dying on track in the middle of a turn. You’re probably going to get hit unless the car starts right back up.

When you’re as big as this cruise ship—and it’s really big at 964 feet long, 105 feet wide, and 91,000 tons—it can be hard to stop. So you have to make sure you slow down in time or you’ll destroy things because once again, you’re a really big ship. This cruise ship, the Celebrity Infinity, didn’t stop in time and…

Poor birdie. If you ever wondered what would happen if an airplane and a bird hit each other head on, here it is. It doesn’t end up exactly how you think it would. Well, it kind of does as in the bird loses but it is a little surprising in how high and straight the bird bounces in the air after hitting the nose of the…
With the right knowledge and a little bit of forethought, the first person on the scene at a motorcycle accident can make the difference between life and death. I just wish I’d thought about this stuff before I found a rider down, trapped under his own bike on a desolate road. Here’s what happened.
Who am I to be writing about survival? Well, I’m someone who’s survived. It’s happened a few times, but this is the story that was closest to being my last.
The big surprise in this legitimately bonkers biking video is that there is absolutely no surprise in what happens. You see everything happen before it happens even though you’re in disbelief as it is about to happen and question if this could really happen. I mean, the bike rider, Primož Ravnik, rides straight down…
