The worst wildfire season in Chile's history ravaged more than 1.4 million acres early in 2017, destroying nearly 1,500 homes and killing at least 11 people. A few months later, a unique team was brought in to help restore the damaged ecosystem. They have four legs and a penchant for careening at high speeds through the forest.

If the notion of bitcoin intrigues you, yet you find yourself intimidated by the complicated techno-jargon surrounding it, then the documentary "Bitcoin: Beyond the Bubble" is for you. This incisive overview explains the intricacies of the cryptocurrency in an engrossing and easily digestible manner.
The film begins with an examination of popular currencies throughout history, including our long-time reliance on precious metals like gold and silver as well as the system of the U.S. dollar that is most commonly employed today. Bitcoin is viewed by many as the next logical evolution from these currencies, and a highly desirable one at that.
Bitcoin, coupled with an interface known as blockchain, is a completely decentralized network that eliminates all intermediaries from the currency exchange process. This is one of the major factors that set it apart from dealings with traditional banks or credit card companies, and it's a significant reason why these firmly established institutions are threatened by the growing popularity of the cryptocurrency.

Wil Wheaton, a guy with whom I've shared many interests in the past but has pretty much fallen off of my radar as he focused more on different things in recent years, has finally realized what a cesspool social media is and is washing his hands of it all.

In an effort to stave off the wholesale consumption of the noble blue crab in Maryland - a state that considers crab to be a vitamin - PeTA launched a billboard campaign that caught the attention of Jimmy's Famous Seafood in Baltimore. As you can surmise, hilarity then ensued across the twitterverse.

If you think you're the only fan of movies so bad they're good, think again. Every state in the US has its own favorite terrible film. These films - you know, those bad movies that you love to hate and hate to love - definitely aren't masterpieces, but they bring about great nostalgia and comfort when you watch them.

The bathroom is a mysterious place. What goes on inside varies for everyone, or maybe it doesn't; we simply do not know. The question has prompted some discussion in the past, and I suspect it will continue to do so until we are all under 24-hour government surveillance, at which point the answers will be known by those with access to the government's live feed. But for now, with the door closed, we can only suspect and ask questions. Here's one: Do men enter the bathtub on their hands and knees in order to ensure their balls hit the water last?
