  • Google Street View Hyperlapse Video

    To me, the Street View function of Google Maps is generally more entertaining than necessarily helpful, but it’s a good tool for scoping out a place you intend to visit. But the creative people of Teehan+Lax have found a new way to use the tool:…

  • Impressive Northern Lights On April 13, 2013

    The northern lights, or aurora borealis, is most definitely a sight to behold. If you’ve never seen it, there’s almost no point of reference to which it can really be compared. The sky just seems to light up in fantastic colors. Thanks to an…

  • Animals Self-Medicating More Than Thought

    Sometimes animals don’t need you and your fancy pills. They can get their own meds, thank you very much. It’s a phenomenon called zoopharmacognosy, and it’s a known thing. A chimp might eat a vomit-inducing plant to purge his system of parasites, or…

  • Hands On With Facebook Home On The Galaxy S III

    I had a working cell phone once. In the before time. In the long, long ago. That’s all over now. It’s Facebook Home launch day for those “lucky” enough to have one of the few handsets it’s rolling out for today. I have a Galaxy S III while the other…

  • The First Bear To Get Brain Surgery

    Operating on animals is a bit different than putting humans under the knife, due to all kinds of different physiological and even chemical differences. But it’s not like it’s brain surgery. Y’know, usually. In Laos, a veterinarian recently performed…

  • Man Hospitalized With Eel In Anus

    On the off chance you needed another reason not to use live eels in sex play, consider the story of a man in China’s Guangdong province who was hospitalized after an eel — apparently being used in sex play to imitate a porn the man had been watching…

  • Beaver Bite Death For Belarus Man

    A fishing trip to a quiet lake in Belarus ended about as badly as it’s possible for a fishing trip to end when one of the men was attacked and killed by a beaver as he tried to photograph it. The man, whose name is not being released, approached the…

  • Google Announces Inactive Account Manager

    There are a lot of ways people can prepare for death. With things like life insurance and wills you can make sure your loved ones are taken care of, or at least not fighting over your stuff, but what happens to your virtual stuff when you die?…

  • Doctor Who Remote Control Flying TARDIS

    That’s weird. I could have sworn that about five minutes ago I had $46.99 more in my bank account than I do right now. I wonder if it has anything to do with the this remote-controlled flying TARDIS that just became available for pre-order. Sadly,…

  • Oldest Dinosaur Embryos Found

    This is, of course, a very important key to us making real-life Jurassic Park at some point in the future, and thus something we need to know all about as soon as possible.

  • Christopher Knight Maine Hermit Burglar Arrested

    Christopher Knight isn’t exactly a people person. The 47-year-old Maine man has lived as a hermit in the woods of Maine for nearly 30 years, becoming a sort of local legend. Mr. Knight’s latest interaction with other humans isn’t likely to get him…

  • Facebook Rolls Out New Status Update Feature

    Get ready to hear everyone complain. Facebook appears to be slowly rolling out a new feature that lets you attach specific actions to your status updates. The feature lets you select from a very limited list of things to include in your update. I…

  • Dog Tied To Train Tracks Up For Adoption

    A train engineer in California is my new hero — and hopefully yours — for pulling the emergency brake on the train he was conducting earlier this month in time to avoid hitting a puppy that had been tied to the tracks by a 78-year-old man.

  • Joerg Sprave Condom Slingshot

    When Bill Gates issued a call for a condom that was safer, stronger, and easier to apply, he got slingshot mastermind Joerg Sprave’s attention, mostly with that “easier to apply” part. The result is Sprave’s latest creation — a condom-applying…
