    Ooooh, looks like somebody just got 50 kills with the shotgun in Bioshock infinite. I remember getting that trophy. This is a video of PBS 'Game/Show' host Jamin Warren discussing why killing things is such a central concept in so many video games. I'd be lying if I told you... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a hawk attacking a quadrocopter and crashing it. It brought me great joy -- like watching a frienemy fail to achieve. I'm just happy to know that when the time comes, I can count on the support of my avian friends to help keep the skies free of autono... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of kittens running around like assassins from Assassin's Creed. They even take out a couple French soldiers. You know, cats really are nature's assassins if you think about it. They're silent, great climbers, always land on their feed, and natural ... / Continue →

    In news that will most certainly work its way into my most erotic fantasies, some paleontologists now believe that t-rexes hunted in packs, working together to bring down large prey. Clever girls. When reached for comment about the discovery, one blogger covered his boner wit... / Continue →
