Is riding a hoverboard onto the edge of a roof of a skyscraper in Dubai idiotic? Absolutely. It is very easy to fall off and lose control on one of those things and if you creep too far off the edge, either you or the hoverboard or both would be sent flying down towards the ground way, way below. That’s not a good…
This is madness. Like, seriously what in the hell is going on. In northern China, multiple bulldozers apparently got so mad at each other that they started one of the craziest demolition derbies I’ve ever seen on a public road. It’s a legitimate royal rumble between heavy machinery. There are normal cars on the street…
This is like something out of a nightmare: a chainsaw attached to a drone. What could possibly go wrong?
It’s long been said that space tourism will be big business. Whole spaceports have sprung up (and basically died) in belief of that economic promise. The problem is that shooting people past our bubble of atmosphere, safely and reliably, is still tricky. Not to mention you need to be rich as hell or dead to even…

This is simultaneously cool and horrifying. Cosmic rays are actually particles—tiny protons and neutrons, that shoot through space. They’re too small to see, but astronauts may still be seeing them.
Foo Fighter’s front man David Grohl recently broke his leg during a show last June, and had cancelled several shows. The band went back on stage, with Grohl perched on a throne of guitars that looks like it was more than a little inspired by Game of Thrones.
John Hagmann’s misconduct hearing with the Virginia Board of Medicine was today. He didn’t show up. But students he had allegedly abused were there, and testified how Hagmann subjected them to invasive medical procedures, bizarre drug- and alcohol-fueled “cognition” experiments, and sexual assault.
Calling for ‘international investigations’ into the ‘murky’ details surrounding the Apollo Moon missions is normally the preserve of 4chan and tinfoil hat-wearers. But now, you can add Russian Investigative Commission spokesperson Vladimir Markin to that illustrious list.
Teens have settled upon a New Dank Meme, and it’s an alliterative, culturally inaccurate demon-summoning ritual. Over two million people used the hashtag #CharlieCharlieChallenge on Twitter in the past two days.

Henry Dalton was a 19th-century micographer who created "micromosaics." Born in 1829, he had to work hard to get just the right materials for his artwork. Mainly because his medium of choice was butterfly wings.
I don't recommend doing this, but I do recommend watching it. A couple of people set fire to one edge of a drift of cottonwood seeds. The fire travels slowly from one side of the drift to the other, leaving the grass underneath it unburned.
Here’s some news that might come as a big surprise to you: A baby cookbook called Bubba Yum Yum written by a TV chef, a mommy blogger and a naturopath may not be as safe as previously thought. Sure, it might stop your baby from developing autism, but only because your baby will be dead. (Better dead than…

A Southern California murder trial would be just another tragic tale of neighbor shoots neighbor, except the accused believes that he is a werewolf ... and he believed his victim was a vampire, according to the testimony of a forensic psychologist.
The helicopter, the elevator scene, the hyper-articulated six-pack abs, the breathy dialogue ... they're all here in this meticulously detailed trailer for Fifty Shades of Bricks.
