    Meet Deinocheirus mirificus (literally: unusual, horrible hand), a recently described dinosaur that some paleontologists are calling the weirdest ever seen. It does kinda look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. For the record, I'd still hit it. Actually, expunge that fr... / Continue →

    This is a visualization of the average distance from earth to the moon, with all the planets of the solar system neatly fitting between the two with room to spare. Wow, it's weird to think the moon is actually that far away. Because when I'm outside looking at it at night it ... / Continue →

    Google recently hired a camel named Raffia to carry one of its 360-degree Trekker cameras to capture a street view of Abu Dhabi's Liwa Oasis. Not a bad idea, Google, but I would have hired a flying carpet and captured the images while simultaneously making love to a beautiful ... / Continue →

    This is a video of voice actors Sean Schemmel and Jason Douglas recording their character's lines for the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie. They really get into character. Lots of fist clenching and face making. I do the same thing when I'm on the phone with telemarketers... / Continue →

    This is a short clip of two great white sharks trying to bite each other. After the clip, there's a bunch of speculation about whether or not the two were actually doing battle, or if the larger shark was going after the bait attached to the boat and the smaller shark just got... / Continue →

    This is Sparked, a whimsical short video collaboration between Cirque Du Soleil and ETH Zurich and Verity Studios, featuring a man and a bunch of autonomous drone lampshades choreographed to dance around him. No computer graphics were used. Black magic? MAYBE. Definitely so... / Continue →

    In news that makes me wish I was smart enough to conduct the research myself, Stephen Hawking is claiming that experimenting with the Higgs Boson particle could create a "catastrophic vacuum decay" and destroy the entire universe. I, for one, would like to see that happen. It... / Continue →

    This is video of a rarely seen behavior by ants in which they form 'daisy-chains' to haul away something much larger than themselves. In this case, a dead millipede. Could you imagine being an ant out foraging for food when you stumble across a dead millipede? JACKPOT. That... / Continue →

    Scottish whiskey distiller Ardbeg managed to send some whiskey up to the International Space Station in 2011 as part of an experiment to see how alcohol matures in microgravity. And now, three years later, it's about to return to earth via a Russian space capsule. Obviously, ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a sadder, older Hoggle from Labyrinth, Polish priest Marian Rajchel claims he's started receiving text messages from the demon he failed to exorcise from a young woman. No word if the demon is just taking advantage of Marian's pay-per-text p... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy blowing vapor clouds in his car and watching the clouds dance to the beat of the song playing. I kind of liked that song. Thankfully, they included the name of it on the Youtube page (Cashmere by Hucci). That was very nice of them. A lot of times yo... / Continue →
