    This is a video of a bunch of old historical photos that have been carefully colored to add new life to the shots. I'm pretty sure I'd already seen a bunch of them before, but it was nice to have them all in video form so you can just sit back and enjoy. Plus there's a little... / Continue →

    Korean unicorns are different from the unicorns you probably think of. These are Korean unicorns in the picture. As you can see, they're much more colorful and their corns are way more penis-y than their western counterparts. I like that about them. And now North Korea's st... / Continue →

    This is a video showing the history of earth from big bang to current day, all in a minute and a half video. In real life it took almost 10,000 times that long though -- maybe even 100,000. "You're an idiot." I have never passed a math class. The video was created using foo... / Continue →

    This is a very brief history of operating system scroll bars. It's not inclusive though, because I don't even see the one I'm using on there. Regardless, they've really come a long way, haven't they? SPOILER: Nope. Thanks to Deacon, who, based on his email, is apparently VE... / Continue →

    This is the very touching (I cried) presidential speech prepared in the event Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin got stuck on the moon and wouldn't be returning home to earth. Thankfully, it never had to be delivered. NOW ENOUGH LOLLYGAGGING, LET'S GET SOME MORE MEN UP TH... / Continue →

    Apparently this is the first picture ever uploaded to the internet. Surprisingly it's not a cat, tit, or man's peenor. Hey -- I'm as shocked as you are. Apparently the internet was born much maturer than it is now and has been digressing ever since. Think Benjamin Button, b... / Continue →

    That's the problem: people don't wait until they have something WORTH posting. This is the first video ever uploaded to Youtube by one of the website's co-founders on April 23, 1955 2005. It...is a giant turd. I really think it set a precedent for the 99.9% of videos on Yout... / Continue →

    Apple Computers: grossly overpriced since at least 1996. This is Best Buy ad from 1996 (the year some of you were born but the year I lost my virginity. JK JK MOM -- I'VE STILL GOT IT). Because it would take me forever to resize the pieces into something decent because of th... / Continue →

    Well folks, that was that. When Atlantis reached for the stars this morning at 11:29 EST, it marked the last launch of NASA's 30-year shuttle program. *tearing open a freeze-dried ice cream in remembrance* The breathtaking final launch of the space shuttle Atlantis was capt... / Continue →

    The Pontiac Deluxe Six "Ghost Car" has an exterior built entirely out of Plexiglass in 1939 for display at the New York World's Fair so visitors would be all, "WHOA -- cars don't run on wizards?!" But seriously: do they or don't they? Because one guy told me it was fairies an... / Continue →

    China, in an attempt to curb inaccurate portrayals of the country's past, has created a list of guidelines for television programs that discourage the use of time-travel in plots. So yeah, no more going back and changing history. The Great Wall was originally built as a tape-m... / Continue →

    I have been itching a lot lately. Seen here looking none too happy about it, a feathered dinosaur RAWRs in annoyance over his lice infestation. You know, it wouldn't kill you to take a mud bath every once in awhile. But it probably would kill you if earth got hit by a giant ... / Continue →

    Two years ago today -- on Sunday, March 15, 2009, a free-tailed bat with a broken wing clung to the Space Shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank before liftoff. Unbeknownst to him, he was about to be granted one last chance at flight. And fly he did -- with over 37-million h... / Continue →

    Tuesday, January 28, 1986. I was only four at the time and didn't watch the launch on live TV like so many others, but I do remember learning about it soon after and the profound effect it had me as an aspiring astronaut. We live, we die, we learn. In remembrance of (clock... / Continue →
