    This is a short video made to promote tomorrow's release of Super Mario Maker in which Shigeru Miyamoto discusses some of the Super Mario franchise's myths. Although he doesn't actually do too much discussing, he mostly just shakes or nods his head, which is exactly how I like... / Continue →

    This is a tutorial video made by former NASA engineer Mark Rober (who apparently has a lot of young looking friends) showing you how to make it look like you skinned a watermelon. Basically you use a knife to cut the rind off a watermelon until it's all red, sand it smooth wit... / Continue →

    This is a video created by Youtuber J. Matthew Turner trying to prove that Daniel LaRusso (the Karate Kid) is a violent sociopath and the real bully of the film, and that his arch nemesis Johnny is actually the flawed hero. It was surprisingly convincing. Of course, I'm prett... / Continue →

    This is a video of a woman removing the fake numbers from a $10 bill that's been altered to look like a $50. Were those decals? They looked like model airplane decals. Basically the counterfeiters just replaced anyplace it said '10' with a '50'. They did not change Alexande... / Continue →

    Because GW is my name and female empowerment is my game (even above beer pong and Risk), this is a shot of the women's bathroom sign revelation discovered by Axosoft programmer Tania Katan. As you can see, the woman in the sign was never wearing a dress, she was wearing a CAPE... / Continue →

    This is the human anatomy inspired alphabet designed by Venezuelan illustrator Laura Facci. At first I was disappointed to see the names of all the body parts didn't start with the letters they represent, but then I remembered the artist is Venezuelan, and they speak Spanish i... / Continue →

    This is a painting that appears to change perspective depending on the angle it's viewed from. How does it work? SPOILER: It's not flat. It's actually made up of two flat topped pyramids. Just like the creepy eyeball pyramid on the back of a dollar bill! Clearly, this is s... / Continue →

    So somebody realized the 2014 World Cup Brazil logo looks like a facepalming Captain Picard. You think the person who designed it was inspired by The Next Generation? That answer is no unless you're a crazy person. Come on, I believe in gnomes and fairies and even I can reco... / Continue →

    This is a video of what happens inside a dishwasher when you turn it on. SPOILER: it uses water to wash dishes. It was weird watching the middle spray nozzle looking like a sad boner at the beginning though. Like, it was trying SO HARD to get up but just couldn't. Reminds m... / Continue →

    A-ha's 1985 music video for 'Take on Me' is one of the best ever made. Granted I don't really keep up with current music videos, but in my mind they're all CG and ass shaking. "What's wrong with ass shaking?" There is nothing wrong with ass shaking. This is the Doctor Who 5... / Continue →

    In news that's sure to set the computing world ablaze (or not at all), Bill Gates has confessed that the control-alt-delete keyboard combination was a mistake and the fault of a keyboard designer who refused to add a one-button equivalent. How enthralling! If I was any more ... / Continue →

    According to a recent experiment conducted by high school math teacher Dan Anderson and his students (arguably the most trustworthy kind of experiment), Double Stuf Oreos are actually only 1.86x stuffed, and Mega Stufs 2.68x stuffed. I don't really have a problem with the Mega... / Continue →

    In recent years there have been some pretty defamatory claims that the t-rex was just a scavenger and didn't hunt other live dinos. But now, thanks to a t-rex tooth found lodged in the tailbone of a duck-billed dinosaur that clearly lived for some time after the encounter, pal... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a Melbourne, Australia fireworks show viewed in reverse. No screepcap can really do it justice though, so I suggest you at least watch a little bit of it. A lot of the fireworks reminded me of those little shooting stars you see in your vision af... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a hair under a microscope, scientists have managed to capture an image of DNA's double helix structure for the first time, officially ending the era of me being able to claim DNA is actually shaped like little rainbows. Truly a sad day. The... / Continue →

    This is a series of anamorphic illusions. Basically they're photo-realistic prints that, when viewed from just the right angle, look like what they're supposed to. But if you move them, you see just how distorted the actual image is. Be careful though, you might get a headac... / Continue →

    Mimas, left, Tethys, right. Remember when scientists discovered a Pac-Man hiding in Saturn's moon Mimas when viewing the satellite with a thermal imaging camera? Well look out world, because Saturn's moon Tethys has one too. My moon? My moon has a scar that looks like a flow... / Continue →

    I was never good at math and I'm still not now. 5 x 5 = 30. Okay that time I actually got it right, normally I don't though. And now researchers have discovered that anxiety about doing mathematics causes a brain response similar to one when experiencing bodily harm. DO YOU... / Continue →

    Illustrations by Nate Carroll As any t-rex could tell you, the best triceratops meat is in the neck beneath the frill. And now paleontologists believe they've discovered just how the beasts tore the heads off their prey to get at it. The steps they took (as illustrated above)... / Continue →

    Using long-wavelength observations, the Keck II telescope in Hawaii was recently able to see through the methane gas cloud surrounding Uranus and provide the best images of the planet to date. It really is surrounded by a gas cloud by the way -- that wasn't a euphemism for but... / Continue →
