Why the hell didn't any of you tell me about Orbeez?

And none of you posers thought to tell me! Check this out. Here's a guy putting 25 million Orbeez in a swimming pool, where they b...

Everyone wants to pose with the absurdly pink stru...

Dashcam video of a near-miss will make your palms sweat

When driving along a completely deserted country road, you may be tempted to blow through a stop sign. Bad idea. Nerve-wracking dashcam footage from a semi-truck driving along a state highway in Ohio shows an oblivious driver blow through a stop sign, barely missing the truck barreling through the intersection.  It's truly amazing how close the two vehicles came without colliding.  Fortunately, the truck driver noticed the car wasn't stoppi...

Samantha Bee slams Trump's London tweets and diet of 'scrambled Islamophobia'

Donald Trump has completely reset the bar for "Presidential behavior," but even by that standard his tweets about the terrorist attack in London were a disappointing low. On Wednesday's Full Frontal, Samantha Bee tried to understand just what possessed Trump to attack the mayor of London during a tragedy.  Tragedy, Bee noted, is one of the few events that garners international solidarity. After 9/11, the guards outside Buckingham Palace pla...

40 years of hip hop mashed into one song is legendary

Combining 40 years of hip hop into one cohesive song is an ambitious endeavor, but YouTube channel The Hood Internet's attempt is pretty extraordinary. "It’s not a chronological history of hip hop. It’s rappers from different eras finishing each other’s rhymes over intersecting beats," the channel wrote on YouTube. This leads to some surprising collabs from artists we never expected to be on the same track. [h/t: AV Club ] Original link

SpaceX continues to amaze.  Perhaps the most remarkable thing the Elon Musk-founded company has done is turn incredible-seeming spaceflight milestones into routine events. That's exactly what they did on Saturday. The private company launched yet another Falcon 9 rocket to space loaded down with an uncrewed Dragon capsule.

These terrible dress shirts must go

At some point between late 2015 and early 2016, the ubiquitous cold-shoulder top took hold of fast fashion and has since refused to let go.

True to name, they make your shoulders cold and your life just a little bit worse.  Now another another unforgivable trend is creeping its way into fast fashion stores across America.  The style:...

Zuckerberg sheds tears and gets political in Harvard commencement speech

Mark Zuckerberg shed tears, threw shade, and got (mildly) political in a commencement speech to his alma mater on Thursday. The Facebook CEO and Harvard dropout touched on everything from income inequality to Beyonce to Donald Trump (though he danced around referring to the president by name).  Fresh off a cross-country road trip of staged meet-and-greets, the billionaire seemed genuinely excited to return to the school where he first conce...

The radical history of Mother's Day you never knew about

If you thought Mother's Day started out as a ploy by greeting card companies to pocket your hard-earned money, you're in for a big surprise.  Though the annual American holiday became a commercial affair years after its founding, it actually began in 1905 as a way to honor the legacy of activist Ann Reeves Jarvis.  In 1868, decades before her death, Jarvis organized a "Mothers' Friendship Day" to help women from opposing sides of the Civil ...

New 'The Mist' trailer is a friggin' gorefest

Wow. If you expected The Mist, the Stephen King novella-based TV show which hits Spike on June 22, to be tamer then the 2007 movie of the same name, think again.  The new trailer for the show is an absolute gorefest, with enough violence to put Doom to shame and enough missing eyeballs to scare away...well, anyone who doesn't like missing eyeballs.   The premise is the same as in King's novella (and the movie, which is unrelated t...

Made by state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (Comac), the C919 faced a three-year long delay due to production issues. And, she's off! The country's aerospace i...
