For the first time, researchers say they have made a lithium-ion battery that uses a water-salt solution as its electrolyte and can reach the voltage needed to power household electronics and it doesn't come with the fire and the explosions and the arrgghh that is a risk with "some commercially available non-aqueous lithium-ion batteries".

The key to this battery? The special coating.


Video: To ensure the foam fire suppression system actually worked before bringing aircraft into its new helicopter maintenance training facility, safety personnel at the Fort Indiantown Gap Army Reserve base in Pennsylvania performed a full-scale test of the emergency equipment. But I can't understand why no one is running through that hanger like a kid in Willy Wonka's factory.


Video: If you're going to call something a firetruck, should its sole purpose really be to extinguish flames? That's like a food truck driving around and disposing of people's lunches. It just doesn't make any sense, which is why YouTube's PeterSripol upgraded a toy firetruck with a functional flamethrower so that at least one the vehicles can finally live up to its name.


Not all the animals that burned in the fire had died, so the cowboys returned with shotguns in hand, and bandannas over their faces to ward off the stench. The animals had to be put down as quickly and humanely as possible under the circumstances. Everything in sight was covered with fine ash.


Nothing like a pile of flaming human skulls to give your barbeque that classic, Game of Thrones feel! The perfect dungeon dressing for maniacal evildoers everywhere, Myard's "DELUXE" cranium-shaped "logs" would be a fantastic purchase... if you could actually buy them.


There are so many reasons to try this at home tonight: you get to see the metal blade burn that glorious fiery orange red, you get to hear inanimate objects make weird whining sounds as they get sliced open, you get to imagine what spontaneous self-combustion would be like, and in some cases you might even spot what looks like souls escaping from a bar of soap (that's probably my favourite thing that gets cut).
