Colour Isn't Always About Sex, Study Finds

When it comes to birds, males — with their bright feathers, extra accessories, and impressive mating displays — tend to get all the attention. But colour isn’t just about attracting a mate. For many birds, such as the Choco Toucan pictured above, brilliant plumage has nothing to do with sex, and everything to do with survival.


Water Droplets Jump Off A Gecko's Skin Like Popping Popcorn

Geckos have a neat superpower that allows it to stay dry at all times: water droplets basically get catapulted off their skin like popping popcorn. It’s pretty nuts to see the water launch in the air like that and also pretty gross to think of it as the sort of human equivalent of shooting out sweat from our bodies.


After Thousands Of Years, Earth's Frozen Life Forms Are Waking Up

What’s happening in Siberia’s thawing permafrost and Greenland’s melting glaciers sounds borderline supernatural. Ancient viruses, bacteria, plants and even animals have been cryogenically frozen there for millennia — and now they are waking up.


How Nanoscale Optics Create Nature's Most Dazzling Colours

What do a butterfly’s shimmering wings, a fish’s opalescent scales, and a peacock’s brilliant feathers have in common? Yes, their colours are beautifully iridescent.

Neat Video Shows The Evolution Of Batman Movies Over The Last 70 Years

Video: Editor Jacob T. Swinney put together this cool video showing the evolution of Batman from the 1943 serial to Nolan’s blockbusters.

Forget Drugs, Darknet Markets Are Selling Counterfeit Christmas Gifts 

Receiving luxury Christmas presents is great. Giving them, however, has one major downside: Luxury Christmas gifts are expensive as shit. Perhaps that’s why the business of peddling counterfeit items like fake iPhone 6 smartphones and knockoff Louis Vuittons is flourishing on darknet markets like Evolution.


Business Is Booming For Evolution, The Weapons-And-Drugs Dark Market

When the FBI seized the Silk Road 2 and other popular darknet markets, it was a dark day for people who buy illegal shit online. But it turned out to be a great day for Evolution, the largest market that didn’t get shut down in the raid.


Heroin, Guns, Stolen Credit Cards: Meet Evolution, The New Silk Road

There’s been a power vacuum in the online drug trade since black market Silk Road got busted. It won’t last. The internet abhors a vacuum just as much as nature. The proof is Evolution, a smarter, more morally bankrupt version of the Silk Road that’s on the rise.
