A Collection Of The Weirdest Junk I've Found On Spotify

I have a tendency to fall down what I’ll call “internet research holes”. Recent romps include reading the entire Daenerys Targaryen character page on the Game of Thrones Wikia, the entire post history of a person who supposedly writes for Total Sorority Move and the collected web history of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s marital problems. (I should note here that I do not watch Game of Thrones, read Total Sorority Move, or know Bey and Jay personally.)

Someone Is Finally Trying To Stop This Underground Garbage Fire That Has Burned For Six Years

For six years, an underground garbage fire has been steadily burning outside of Saint Louis, Missouri, right next to a landfill filled with nuclear waste buried in the mid-’70s. So why hasn’t anyone managed to extinguish it yet?


Virtual Reality Bedtime Lets You Ditch The Kids At Home

Being a parent, fun as it can sometimes be, is also incredibly difficult.* And for a parent who can’t be there for everything — because of work, travel obligations, divorce or separation, or other circumstances — it can be even harder.

Convinced that when your cat meows, it’s truly trying to tell you something? Now there’s a 3D printed talking cat collar to pick up on Fluffy’s varied vocalisations and “translate” them via an app on your smart phone. Yes, just like the one worn by Dug the talking dog in Pixar’s Up (“Squirrel!”).


A Guide To Marvel's Original Civil War Saga, Which Was Not Good

We couldn’t be more excited about Captain America: Civil War, but we also couldn’t be less enthused with its source material. The comic event was epic, but it was also a mess, where Iron Man inexplicably became a supervillianous arsehole. Here’s a guide to Marvel’s original Civil War that shows why we’re glad to see the movie seems to only be taking its name, and little else.
