Why Spoiling Game Of Thrones Is Not As Heinous A Crime As You Might Think

We’re three episodes into the fourth season of Game of Thrones now. That’s enough time for regular watchers of the show to have settled back into their regular Monday night watching schedules, avoiding spoilers in the afternoon (if they want to).

If you do happen to run across a spoiler or two before you watch the show, though, it’s not the end of the world.


Scientifically Accurate SpongeBob Is Hilariously Disgusting

After getting sucked on and eaten by his best friend Patrick Star, scientifically accurate SpongeBob Squarepants as imagined by ADHD is destined for a life of cleaning dishes. That caps a hilariously sad life of basically being immobile at the bottom of the ocean with “friends” who are killer creatures.


Chalk That Can Draw Deadly Weapons Look Fun Until They Kill You

Screw playing Call of Duty or Halo or Titanfall or any next generation video game, I want this Chalk Warfare game where you draw your own weapons and fight your friends to become real. Your weapons are only limited by your imagination and, well, your drawing skills.


Watch Portugal Launch A Drone And Immediately Fail By Crashing It

Video: Well, hmph. That’s not how drones work guys. Supposedly, this video shows Portugal attempting to launch a naval drone by giving it a running start. As the drone is thrown in the air to fly, it immediately nosedives and crashes into the ocean. What a wonderful failure.


Animation Explains How Viruses Attack Our Cells To Make Us Sick

Staying healthy is a lot like medieval warfare. Cells vs viruses. There are cells defending their castles and viruses trying to break through. If a sneaky virus manages to attack a cell, the cell fights it and notifies all the other castles about what to build to defend it.


10 Animals That Might Become Extinct In The Next 10 Years

Chances are you won’t see these rare animals at the local zoo, because their population is down to the last hundreds. In some cases, it’s much worse than that with only a couple left.


Video: Look How Close Blue Angels Fighter Jets Fly Together

Absurd. Like, seriously. Look at this fleet of Blue Angels jet planes fly in a perfect pattern in a practice session. The flight pattern they were practicing, I’m assuming here, is called “Let’s get these flying metal beasts as close as possible so that one inch of a mistake will kill us all”. The wing of one plane is right on top of the cockpit of the other. Nuts, these guys.


Holy Crap, Watch This Man Narrowly Escape Getting Hit By A Train

This 77-year-old man from the Czech Republic has never been luckier. As he foolishly scurries across a train track, the man mis-times his walk and almost gets killed by a speeding train. The train comes so close to hitting him on the tracks that it actually does. His foot is clipped by the train and you can see one of his shoes fly across the video. Judging by how fast his shoe is catapulted, you can imagine what would have happened to the rest of his body if he was half a step slower.


Queensland University's Pitch Drop Experiment Sees Results For The First Time In Years

Since 1930, there has been a science experiment that basically does nothing. Seriously. Scientists watch as a solid — that’s actually a liquid 230 billion times more viscous than water — drips down a glass container. But that takes time. A lot of time with a whole lot of nothing. For the past 84 years, the blob of tar has only dripped 8 times. It finally dripped the 9th time.


Watch The First Minutes Of Joss Whedon's New Spooky Movie In Your Eyes

And if you like what you see from the newest spooky supernatural flick from Joss Whedon’s brilliant brain, you can watch the entire movie on demand on Vimeo for 5 bucks. A great deal for those of you who want more Whedon in your life. The tagline talks about this being a story about a girl who meets a boy but because this is Whedon, you know all kinds of crazy mysterious things and spectacular maybe sci-fi maybe magical definitely cool things will happen too.


Magic Material Is Both A Reflecting Mirror And A See Through Window

No, it’s not a one way mirror. It’s much cooler than that. MIT scientists have invented a new invisible mirror that can show reflections like a typical mirror but also be see through like a window. The magic is in the alternating 84 ultra thin layers typical glass and tantalum oxide. It’s a mirror but when you spin it, it becomes transparent. Some light passes through, some light gets reflected.
