Yootoober TheLeoboycool10 makes stop-motion movies with action figures, and has taken on the monumental task of retelling Marvel's Infinity War saga with his own quirky spin. He has a minimalist low-rent approach to sets and a keen sense of cinematic style, which leads for some really amazing animation considering the medium. Well worth following to its eventual conclusion.

Of course, they've known it for years... but now for some reason they figure it's time to acknowledge the advantages of vaping over smoking in an official capacity. About time, you shitheels. How many could have switched while you maintained the charade for your big pharma benefactors?

Leon Lederman was forced to sell his Nobel before his death to pay for just a portion of his medical bills.
This is not an opinion piece. This is fact. Welcome to America.

Wikkelhouse is a modular house made of standardized segments of cardboard and wood, giving it a solid structure - sorta like a stylized (and crazy green) quonset hut. It's lightweight enough to not require a foundation and can be relocated on a truck if need be, but is sadly only available in Europe. For now.

You can now buy Martian dirt. And no this is not Sci-fi. University of Central Florida (UCF) has announced that it will be selling martian dirt for $20 per Kilogram plus shipping.
Indeed, a team of UCF astrophysicists has come up with a method for creating Martian dirt. This red soil, created by the UCF researchers, is known as “Simulant” and very closely resembles Martian dirt as its formula is based on the chemical composition of soil actually collected from Mars by the Curiosity rover. The formula has been published online and is accessible to everyone.

So you're a big fan of Owen Wilson. You've seen all of his movies. You know that he says "wow" a lot. Can you match an audio clip of his to one out of four movies listed as possible answers? You get ten tries.

For the first time, scientists have discovered all-female termite colonies, living and flourishing in Japan. While we know of several insect species that easily thrive without any males, this is an exciting new development in our understanding of asexual reproduction.

This is the HP Spectre Folio. Unveiled in an over-the-top press event in Manhattan today, which included such turns of phrase as "aluminum has become the gold standard," the device is a convertible laptop with a leather case. As HP put it at the event, "this isn't a PC that's wrapped in leather, it's a PC that's made of leather."

Score one for DLR for having the balls to challenge Ozzy to a competition involving drugs without dying in the process.

Google has given a chance to its users to look around the garage where it took birth. On the occasion of 20th birthday of the company, the search giant posted a Google Street View Tour of the Menlo Park, California garage where it all began in 1998. The company has recreated the space and has added every single detail to it. It has also included a secret room filled with classic Google memorabilia. The YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki owned the garage which served as Google’s first headquarters. It was the place where the foundations of Google were laid by the co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page. The firm wrote in a blog post, “To celebrate Google’s 20th birthday, today we invite you to travel back in time and take a virtual stroll through the original Google Garage in Street View – (almost) like it was 20 years ago.”

The Royal Navy Submarine Museum is having a special treat this weekend. In addition to their collection of submarines (one goes back to 1901), there are some great activities.
If you know any Limeys, or perhaps visiting the UK, you should check out the attractions.

This is such a great story. Chicago Cubs fan Stefan Xidas, who has Down syndrome, raised nearly $40,000 for the Special Olympics in Illinois. So the team granted his wish and let him come and sing the national anthem at Monday night’s game. And he was amazing!

I am here to tell you the professional wrestler turned movie star Dwayne The Rock Johnson is going to be president, but before that happens, we are going to make a book, to make a movie, to make a mind.

So I just got back from a little vacation that briefly put me in the Great White North for the first time, and I took the opportunity to visit the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory in Victoria BC where the visitor's center has dubbed itself the Centre of the Universe. It's a nifty little observatory of significant historical and scientific interest that is sadly now in a state of disrepair, woefully underfunded by the Canadian government and looking to restore itself to the point where it can at least contribute to the astrological community again and open itself back up to schools and the general public.
