Stan Streaming Service: Australian Hands On

When StreamCo burst onto the scene in Australia promising a better way to stream for all, we thought it was a big promise with a stupid name. Now that we’ve heard all about its exclusives, its price and its new name — Stan — we’re excited (and still not convinced that the name is quite right).


Village Roadshow: We're 'Fighting The Good Fight' Against Piracy

The outbursts of enraged anti-piracy rhetoric from Village Roadshow have slowed down in recent months. Ever since Malcolm Turnbull’s piracy forum, the company has kept its mouth shut as the Government works through a scheme to crack down on piracy in Australia. Today at its Annual General Meeting, however, the company told its shareholders that it’s “fighting the good fight” when it comes to piracy.


Watching Grandmas Smoke Weed For The First Time Is So Great

When you combine three nice things like grandmas and weed and doing something for the first time, well, you get something wonderful. Watch as three grandmas smoke weed for the first time and hang out with them as they get high. They laugh, they get the munchies, they don’t always make sense and they want to smoke more.


Cool Photos Of F-22s And F-35s Flying Together For The First Time

Behold the F-22 Raptor (top two) and F-35 Lightning II (bottom two) flying together for the first time in history. Arguably the two most technologically advanced military jets in the world, the Lt.

Celebrate Mike Nichols, Watch The Graduate

IKEA Is Reissuing Amazing Old Designs From The 1950s And 1960s

Ikea is over 70 years old, which means the company has survived through dozens upon dozens of design trends, from stuffy conservatism in the late 1940s to the craziness of the 1960s. Wonderfully, the company is now plucking classics from its archives to sell in some stores.


Drone Video Shows The Snow Wall Storm From The Inside

Video: We have seen lots of impressive images and time-lapse video of the snow wall that buried entire cities in upstate New York but this is the first drone video filmed behind it, taken in West Seneca by Jim Grimaldi. A new lake effect, powered by arctic winds from the north pole and Siberia, is now hitting the area again.


Recreate Raiders' Goriest Scene With A Melting Nazi Candle

Die-hard fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark will finally be able to recreate what is certainly the most unsettling scene in the movie, and one of the creepiest uses of practical effects ever to hit the silver screen. But instead of multiple layers of melting gelatin, this Major Toht candle is of course made of wax — so it doesn’t melt quite so quickly.


The World's Oldest Basketball Court Has Iron Poles In The Middle Of It

Basketball is famously an all-American sport (invented by a Canadian). But thanks to an odd twist of fate and the YMCA, the world’s oldest surviving basketball court is actually in France. Tucked away in a neighbourhood of Paris, the handsome facility has parquet floors and iron pillars running down the middle of it. It looks dangerous as hell.

And This Year's Grossest Christmas Ad Goes To...

Last year, Poo-Pourri’s ad Girls Don’t Poop proved that humour is the best weapon if you need to advertise a stink-eliminating toilet spray.
