Not to scare you, but you're getting hit with radiation constantly. First, there's just regular old light (yep, that's a kind of radiation). Then there are low levels of higher energy radiation such as the kind in nuclear reactors, including particles coming out of the soil and off of bananas. But the highest-energy radiation is the weirdest stuff. It's literally out of this galaxy.

In the capitalistic nightmare we live in, everything has to be a transaction. So, when Pact launched its fitness app that let you make money for working out — or else pay a fee for failing to do so — it seemed to be the perfect motivational tool. There was just one problem: The company apparently wasn't that great at paying up, and was it too good at collecting fees.

Back in April, at Facebook's annual developer conference, the company announced an ambitious — and very creepy! — plan to read its users' minds. Facebook's secretive hardware R&D division, Building 8, planned to develop its own "brain-to-computer interface" hardware that would allow a user to send words straight from her brain to a computer by merely thinking.

On or shortly after next Tuesday in Delaware's Court of Chancery, the founder and CEO of Facebook will take the stand for the second time this year. Unlike the intellectual property case against Zenimax that forced Facebook to cough up $US500 million ($631 million), Mark Zuckerberg stands to lose some of the control he's maintained over his his company over a suit pertaining to the bone-dry topic of stock restructuring. Don't worry, it's more digestible than it sounds.

The Lego Ninjago Movie starts like a strobe light and ends like a night light. At first, it's bright, loud, fast, and in your face — a constant barrage of visuals and sounds. Then it slows down considerably, focusing on the story and character development. One part is better than the other but neither is great, and, unlike Legos, they just don't fit together.
