The Onion's Explanation For Dark Matter Is My Favourite Yet

This may be the best explanation for dark matter yet: It’s just fucking nitrogen.

Have All Your Avos In A Row? Or How To Speak Aussie English

Finally, A Guided Meditation That Speaks My Language (NSFW)

Video: We’ve all been there: So wound-up from bills, emails, missed deadlines, and the general bullshit of existence that we need some way of just letting go.

Anna Kendrick Would Make An Amazing Indiana Jones

Video Indiana Jones was sass and smarts in a cool outfit. What part of that doesn’t sound like Hollywood favourite, Anna Kendrick? NBC decided to remake the final scene of The Last Crusade with Kendrick in the role of Dr Jones, and it’s awesome.


This 8 Ball Predicts Your Future In Emojii

The Best Way To Ruin The New Force Awakens Trailer? Jar Jar Binks.

Video: You know what made the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer especially great? A distinct lack of Jar Jar Binks. But some people, it seems, just want to watch the world burn. It’s amazing what a little video editing can do. The new Force Awakens trailer, for instance, was an instantly loveable global sensation.
