You might assume Gunderson’s job was agony for a professional basketball player - that, as leader of the doomed, he had to live with the constant taste of defeat, literally and figuratively dunked on in every city he visited. But you’d be wrong. This is Gunderson’s story.

Last September, Swiss cheesemaker Beat Wampfler and a team of researchers from the Bern University of Arts placed nine 22-pound wheels of Emmental cheese in individual wooden crates in Wampfler's cheese cellar. Then, for the next six months each cheese was exposed to an endless, 24-hour loop of one song using a mini-transducer, which directed the sound waves directly into the cheese wheels. The cheese was then examined by food technologists from the ZHAW Food Perception Research Group, which concluded that the cheese exposed to music had a milder flavor compared to the non-musical cheese.

Last year, The Simpsons featured an episode called "Lisa Gets the Blues," in which Homer eats his way through many of the signature dishes of new Orleans. Katrin von Niederhäusern and Janine Wiget from Switzerland went to the Big Easy and recreated the sequence shot-by-sho.
A Massachusetts man accidentally set his roof on fire after he used a roman candle to kill hornets outside his home.

Among the many things in the world that I refuse to participate in, even though I've been openly mocked as paranoid about it, are digital assistants - your Siris, Alexas, OK Googles, what have you. I can't understand why anyone would willingly - in most cases, even pay for the privilege to - allow an always-on listening device operated by a for-profit company in their house, their purse, their pocket. The terrible implications of such things seem glaringly obvious to me. If they aren't to you, then read this half-hearted apology from Apple for abusing the fuck out everyone who uses Siri.
When you wonder where your privacy went, gaze upon all the electronic informants you've bought and peppered your world with. STOP INVITING THE VAMPIRES IN.

Scientists in Australia announced a startling discovery this week when they revealed that a piece of rock brought back by the crew of the Apollo 14 moon landings was actually originally from Earth.
Writing in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, the scientists suggested that the rock may have been part of debris catapulted to the moon from Earth after an asteroid collided with our planet billions of years ago.

A gigantic floating raft of volcanic rock that emerged from an underwater volcano eruption in the Pacific Ocean is slowly drifting towards the Australian coast, heartening hopes it could benefit the imperilled Great Barrier Reef.
Be sure to check out the video of a boat going through it. Amazing.

New Zealand police embarked on what may be the world's slowest chase while attempting to stop a man fleeing them on a mobility scooter. Police spotted double amputee Charlie Durham, 60, driving down the footpath of a suburban street at what they deemed dangerous speeds. Giving chase, the red police car cut across traffic to try to stop the man – who fled across two lanes to take refuge on the opposite footpath. Durham told TVNZ he thought the police car was an ice cream van trying to sell him an ice cream – which he didn't want.

Classic Late Night TV. Dave Letterman had a recurring segment where he would toss items off of a five story tower in New Rochelle, NY. Here is a compilation clip of all those grand moments.

Your body probably isn't ready to fly in a fighter jet.
Somewhere high above New Jersey, I yanked the oxygen mask off my face, worried I was about to throw up.
The crushing turns and fast choppy maneuvers were physically punishing—a roller coaster ride I wanted to end. “Do you mind leveling out?” I asked.
