550 Million Years Of Evolution In 40 Seconds

Video: This is a fun watch, just to see how far we’ve come as little nuggets of nothing to the big dumb bipedal idiots we now are. There’s been a lot of funky things we lost along the way — hair and a tail, come to mind — but I guess we’re better off for it. Anyways, watch the video made for the book EVO below.

Two Giant Cranes Holding A Bridge Collapse Into Nearby Homes

This is horrifying. Two cranes were trying to restore a bridge when they both collapsed into the nearby neighbourhood. The cranes were holding a big chunk of the bridge when they fell, so that smashed into the ground as well. Homes and shops along the river were destroyed and 20 people were hurt. Thankfully, no one died.

That Multitool Clip Now Hides A Bottle Opener And Nail File In Your Hair

The original Clippa replaced the Leatherman hanging off your belt with an ingenious but near-invisible multi-function hair clip. And now there’s a new version of the tool that swaps a serrated edge for a metal file, and a bottle opener for a hex wrench.

Vibrators Don't Have To Look Like Giant Cocks Anymore

A vibrator’s basic job is really quite simple, so long as you’re using it as a sex toy instead of unclenching a charley horse or working out some lower back pain. Vibrators are supposed to rapidly stimulate sexually sensitive sensory neurons. That’s it. They could look like anything. But until recently, they often looked like a garish dick.

This Is Why Carbon Is Now Called Pollution

Carbon dioxide is a funny molecule. Life as we know it wouldn’t exist without CO2. But when we pump too much of it into the atmosphere, it destroys our environment. That’s why the Clean Power Plan, announced yesterday by the Obama administration, has finally decided to call carbon what it is: Pollution.

A Drone Captured This Adorable Orca Family Photo

This isn’t the kind of family snap we’re used to seeing — but it is still insanely cute. A drone piloted by conservationists close to Vancouver Island captured this image of a family of orcas as they swam through the sea together.
