The so-called New York City "poop train" - a trainload of human waste - finally left the small Alabama town it was stranded in, but the smell of excretion was so strong that Febreze stepped in to freshen up the area.

On April 1, 2018, Japanese toy-maker Bandai announced a new lineup and innovative figurines.

The Armored Cats are debuting at a hobby show in Japan right now but for those without access like us will have to wait until August.

Neil Tyson often conjectures that maybe aliens have concluded humans aren’t intelligent enough to contact. He’s probably referring to our capacity for war, but lawns may display our talent for fruitless carnage even better.

Not just any man and not just any blood. James Harrison has unique, disease-fighting antibodies in his system. Here is the story on the good this man did over that time period.
You might not have such unique antibodies in you but I will still get on a soapbox for a minute or two here. Give blood. Give plasma. Costs you nothing but a few minutes; it might save a life.

YUP | 1 The walled city of Kowloon is a fascinating place for many reasons - including its structureIts 300 wooden buildings were all connected, built without professional architects and often some grew wider as they got higher. From the sky it looked as if the mid-rise slums of of Asian megacities (already quite dense) had been put into a giant trash compactor that smushed them together.

Holidays are becoming too commercial, it's true. However, it’s good to see that some traditions never change, such as people enjoying some festivity-related porn searches. It was May the Fourth (Star Wars Day) last Friday, and many celebrated such a blessed day by, in Luke’s own words, keeping "it on manual control for a while.”
To give an insight into the porn habits of the Jedi and Sith of our galaxy, Pornhub has released its Star Wars-related data. On May 4, 2017, the website registered an increase of 1,043 percent in Star Wars-related searches compared to the daily average. Yoda is wrong – size appears to matter. And we can totally judge.
Among the searched terms that had a surge, we find various iterations of the franchise title plus words such as "sex", "lesbian", "porn", "anal", "xxx", and "parody". "Princess Leia" and "Princess Leia" slave also received a boost. Surprisingly, the search term that got the biggest boost was "lightsaber", with a whopping 766 percent increase above the daily average. Clearly, the phallic metaphor of the lightsabers persists.

Farewell to Tom Wolfe, the impeccably attired author and early practitioner of groundbreaking "New Journalism" of the 1960s, as he died on Monday in a Manhattan hospital.
Wolfe, widely regarded as one of the top American journalists of the 20th century, focused his keen eye and explosive writing style on subjects from the Merry Pranksters to the early days of the space race before turning to fiction.
His best-selling books included non-fiction like "The Right Stuff," his riveting account of America's first astronauts, and fiction like "The Bonfire of the Vanities" — his scathing satire of New York City in the '80s.

His quest to receive proper compensation illuminates the struggle for artists’ rights, and how decades-old grievances become coded into rock and roll mythology.

If you've been to a seafood restaurant or market, you probably saw a tank full of live lobsters, waiting to be eaten. Some places even let you pick out the lobsters you want to eat. But why are lobsters boiled alive and not other animals like pigs or chickens? The answer may surprise you, and it's more than just about the taste.
