    Because what better way to brag to aliens that we know numbers, a group of pilots skytyped (the numbers were created with puffs of smoke and not written with loopty loops) pi to 1,000 digits above San Francisco earlier this week. Above LA? Pure smog. Some days you can't even... / Continue →

    This is a digital painting by artist Alex Ruiz (links to prints for sale) imagining one of the nights Vincent Van Gogh worked on his iconic The Starry Night. Clearly, Alex has the skills to pay the bills and won't be cutting an ear off anytime soon. Who pays a hooker in ears ... / Continue →

    You ever wanted to ride a cloud? Whenever I'm flying through them I always think to myself, "WHAAAAAA, HOLY SHIT HOW AM I DOING THIS?!?!" then I wake up and it all makes sense. But seriously, if I can be real with you for a second: I'm the world's greatest lover and I have t... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for the full-res version, HERE for a worthwhile closeup, HERE for another, equally amazing example. Iridescent rainbow clouds: do they rain gold coins? No, not even the ones with chocolate inside. Disappointing, I know. Also: my life. God, can you tell I'm... / Continue →

    Clouds: sometimes they look like dinosaurs. Other times they might look Yoda, Jabba the Hutt or a viking ship. And even OTHER times, they look like this this. A unique formation some meteorologists want to classify as a new type of cloud, and give a name. Give a name -- h... / Continue →

    Jarrod McKinney, who was skydiving with an iPhone in his pocket (allegedly to be able to call somebody in case he landed in the wrong place, although I suspect he's the kind of person that always puts his cell phone on the dinner table set to loud), lost it at 13,500-ft and the... / Continue →

    This is a video of four dudes putting on a 2:00 synchronized indoor skydiving show. It's...a treat for the eyes. If you're into synchronized swimming but are pissed the Olympics aren't on TV, this is definitely for you. If you're into videos where people hurt themselves, it'... / Continue →

    A dirigible large enough to lift and deliver heavy equipment and buildings to remote locations? Yes if Australian make-believe company Skylifter has anything to do with it! No if the mole-people finish their network of underground railways first. This 150 meter-wide disc sha... / Continue →

    Bioshock Infinite, a game best known for having a release date scheduled for after the apocalypse (smart thinking, guys), looks f***ing amazing. And here's ten whole minutes of gameplay footage that may just keep me from giving up on life mid-2011. But probably not. You see,... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a cloud shaped like a dinosaur. Personally, I don't see it. What I do see is Kermit about to eat a penis. Which is erotic in it's own amphibious puppetry way, just not dino hot. *clears throat* Moving on. Dinosaur-Shaped Cloud? Photo of the Day [blisstree... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a UFO spotted above Australia over the weekend. No word on if it actually contained aliens, but that's because the only people who saw it aren't talking and their butts hurt. Some described it as a "lollipop-type swirl". Others say it hovered for a while ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a cloud taken by Michael Longergan. It's a Yoda face-shaped cloud. Granted you could argue it's just a cloud shaped cloud, but you would lose. May the cumulus be with you [badastronomy] Thanks to Phil, who's so good at astronomy Pluto comes when he calls... / Continue →

    A History of the Sky is a project by Ken Murphy in which he plans to collect 365 days worth of time-lapse video from the sky above San Francisco, and then slap them all together in a video mosaic, each cell representing one day, in chronological order. Impressive Ken, but have... / Continue →

    A mysterious light appeared in the sky above Norway last night, causing many citizens to call the Meteorological Institute and others to go back to bed. Me? Suspecting it was a time portal, I would have strapped on a rocketpack and flown right into the middle of it. DINOSAUR... / Continue →

    For those of you that like to get high and lie in the middle of a field staring up, the Leonid meteor shower is supposed to reach its peak tonight from 1AM to dawn. Great, I'll be hiding in the back of the hallway closet waiting for the apocalypse. It, uh, is 2012, right? T... / Continue →

    This is a video of some joker doing pull ups hanging from a crane that is way up high in the sky. Like a bird, except metal and painted red. Okay, like Bubo, the owl in Clash of the Titans, except he was silver and gold and had beady little eyes. Whatever, I am the Analogy K... / Continue →
