All it takes is a few minutes of scrolling through Twitter to make it nearly impossible to fall asleep at night. But if it’s a genuine, horror-inspired nightmare you’re seeking to end your chances of restful slumber, just watch this video of a kookaburra laughing in extreme slow motion.
Earlier this month, 12 people were killed and dozens more were injured when an attacker drove a stolen truck through a crowded Christmas market in Berlin. If it hadn’t been for an automatic brake system mandated by European Union rules, however, last week’s tragedy could have been even worse.
This is like something out of a nightmare: a chainsaw attached to a drone. What could possibly go wrong?
Sleeping too well lately? Looking for that “something something” to turn those boring restful nights into a horrorscape? Turns out, zooming in too far on Google Maps’ user-uploaded 3D Spheres produces some impressively fucked up images.
Plenty of people opened up a gift to find a hoverboard this year. A hearty chunk of that group has already crashed them. Combining a combustible gimmick-toy with a day filled with alcoholic beverages and familial angst is a recipe for wiping out.
Earlier today, the five largest movie theater chains in the country decided that they would not, in fact, show The Interview, a movie about a large scruffy man and a dazed handsome man who assassinate North Korea's Kim Jong-un. The retreat prompted Sony Pictures to cancel the movie's premiere altogether. And the…
John Oliver took a look at drones on Last Week Tonight and didn't like what he saw. Oliver's focus is military drones, not hobbyist quadcopters, and he targeted recent U.S. drone strikes on Pakistan and Yemen.
Looking at this video of a great white shark biting and nearly sinking an inflatable boat, it seems that looking for them in this type of vessels is not a smart idea. Fortunately, the South African film crew on board wasn't hurt, but the boat was seriously damaged and was sinking as it limped back to port.
I knew I was going to freak out when I clicked on this video of a man stuck in The Tube, a long thin passage in the Lost Johns' Cave—a large cave system on Leck Fell, Lancashire, England—as the water pours in and he panics. Fortunately, he escaped at the end.
Modern warfare is defined by ambiguity—and with it, soldiers (and training) have had to adapt. Posted online this week, a U.S. Army document guides soldiers through the rigors of recognizing terrorist and insurgent groups in the wild. Not through weaponry or language, but through branding.
A legal website used by attorneys to privately discuss case law is shutting down after 10 years because the owner no longer feels the site's users are protected from government spying. After federal threats led to the closure of several secure email providers, the publisher of Groklaw closed her own operation last…
A "radiation weapon" designed by a rogue mechanic was offered for sale to the Ku Klux Klan and two synagogues, the FBI claims. South Carolina's racist terror club and two upstate New York synagogues were allegedly approached by a 49-year-old who hoped to build and sell his secret weapon.
Enjoying the ratings gold machine that is The Walking Dead, AMC has decided to try another monstrous TV series, this time based on Dan Simmons' 2007 novel The Terror. Simmons, best known for his scifi novels including Hyperion, wrote the horror novel about an actual Royal Navel expedition which attempted to find the…
While the rest of the world waits for America to get done with its yearly national binge-eating contest, it's worth reminding foreign peoples that Thanksgiving isn't all decadence and tryptophan. Thanksgiving can also be a time of nightmarish horror, as evidenced by this clip from the 1965 Macy's Thanksgiving Day…
This post isn't so much a DIY one as it is inspiration for all you tinkerer's in the audience to really deck out those front porches with insane scratch-built projects for the Trick-or-Treaters on Monday.
The 60 Minutes profile of New York City's massive anti-terrorism network this evening was nothing short of amazing. 35,000 police. 15,000 civilians. Unattended bag-tracking artificial intelligence. Cameras, oh the cameras! One message for potential terrorists: "Stay away."
The Diplomatic District of Kabul, Afghanistan is under attack right now. Reports are that the area—including the US Embassy— is taking heavy RPG fire. But what is an RPG, exactly?
We already have flying robots. Robotic UAVs already dot the skies in considerable numbers for the military. But what about swimming ones? The Blackfish, a 10-foot long remote-controlled jet ski, is being tested by the Navy to defend wartime waters.
