Image: WireImage Whether it's one of our dumb tweets or an embarrassing Vine, it's safe to assume we all want at least one thing scrubbed away from the internet forever.  Turns out famed director Paul Thomas Anderson is no different.

It's time for private spaceflight to start making good on its promises. And in 2018, hopefully it will do just that. From SpaceX's long-promised first flight of the Falcon Heavy rocket to NASA's plan to contract private companies to deliver astronauts to the International Space Station, 2018 should be the year when spaceflight companies start meeting many of their long-touted goals.  "I'm looking forward to a lot of past promises becoming r...

Heavens AI is named Janet, and she's way smarter than Alexa

Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers regarding Janet from The Good Place, but it avoids other big plot points. In heaven, everyone shares an omniscient personal assistant named Janet. At least that’s the case in the hit NBC show The Good Place, which follows the journey of a woman who mistakenly ends up on the wrong side of the afterlife.  Janet, played by D'Arcy Carden, is reminiscent of the digital assistants we have today and has t...

Mitt Romney changed his location on Twitter, and that's bad news for Donald Trump

Image: Getty Images Normally, changing the location in your Twitter bio is no big deal.  But this is different. Mitt Romney changed his location from "Massachusetts" to "Holladay, Utah" on the same day that Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch announced he would retire at the end of the year, according to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur. Why should we care? It's been long rumored that Romney — the former governor of Massachusetts and Republican presidentia...

That's hot. Image: Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images for Photo Butler As 2017 fizzled and faded away to all of our great relief, Paris Hilton had one final parting message. One that might just make you choke on your champagne.  True to Paris form, the tweet began with a bit of a tease: "Before 2017 ends I would like to say..."

My favorite Twitter account is a bot

Image: NurPhoto via Getty Images Human Twitter accounts serve their purpose, but I prefer tweets from bots. Research suggests there are now some 30 million tweeting bots — though this might be a low estimate. Some of these bots provide weather updates, make stock recommendations, or attempt to subvert democracy.  I, however, like bots that aren't necessarily so useful nor ambitious. I look forward to their musings because their primary dire...

A mysterious white truck coincidentally blocked the media's view of Trump's golf game

Image: AP/REX/Shutterstock While Donald Trump relaxes at the end of a year in which nothing interesting happened at all, he's spent some (more) time golfing down at his Mar-A-Lago resort. But it seems he's trying his best to get a little privacy from the prying eyes of the media. Over the last few days, media outlets have managed to catch some janky footage shot through some trees of Trump taking a similarly janky swing and, really, everyth...

50 best tweets that helped us cope throughout 2017

Let's be honest here, 2017 has had nothing but disappointments and mediocrity.  This tumultuous year has taken such a toll on us that the only thing that made us smile, even a little bit, was our dear old friend and the best place for great memes: Twitter.  Sure it can be a terrible toilet at times, but at its best, it's all we have.  At the end of the 2017, we might as well get a laugh out of it to hide our 365 aches.  In no particular ord...

American football won't last much longer, because it's killing itself

Football is violent, but the public's disgust with the damage caused by America's most popular game might finally have reached a critical point this season. The sport is killing itself, and the most powerful arbiter of its practice, the NFL, might just let that death happen by not taking care of its players.  Football's high potential for injury is obvious whenever it's played, but a particularly egregious moment of official malpractice cam...

'Jumanji' is a great video game movie that's not actually based on a video game

It’s a truism that Hollywood has a terrible track record when it comes to video game movies. But it’s not entirely accurate.

This month, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, joins films like Edge of Tomorrow and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World on the list of excellent films inspired by video games but not directly adapted from one.
