In case you didn't know, 3D printing is the next big thing. Haven't heard of it? It's actually pretty simple. Think of something you'd really like to have...then, you program an industrial robot to "print"it out. Basically, these machines can successively add material, layer by layer, until the your desire becomes a physical reality. The best part about 3D printers? They can be used to basically create anything.
We talk about ‘saving the planet’ but what we really mean is saving ourselves. The planet was here before us and will be just fine without us. Mother Nature is a powerful force, strong enough to undo all the “progress” that makes us feel invincible. It won’t be quick, but it will be beautiful. Here’s proof.
Though there are technically two base camps on the North and South faces of Everest, both demand a grueling trek of about 17,000-17,500 feet of Everest’s total 29,029 feet. These are just one example of crazy places to pitch that tent of yours.
A beautiful view can be ruined if there is too much fog. But with just the right amount, gorgeous scenery can be transformed into a foggy dreamscape.
Samuel L Jackson’s recent role in the Robocop remake has got people talking (once again) about the many, many, many different hair and beard styles that he’s revolutionized over the years. The man is an inspiration! Here’s a gallery of 20 different styles he’s pulled off… or maybe he hasn’t pulled them off. Or maybe half of them are Laurence Fishburne and I’m getting confused. You decide.
Did you ever go to Italy and try to get one of those photos where you’re pushing up against the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Or did you ever take a shot of your friend holding the sun in their hand? Well these are kind of like that, except complete accidents and way more hilarious. You’ll have trouble making sense of these bizarre illusions!
After a bit of research I’ve finally accepted that this is a true story, even though it sounds like something Dr. Evil would come up with in Austin Powers. Don’t believe it? A quick Google-search on military dolphins will prove this is actually happening!
“Hey, we should go out for a drink sometime!” – Read at 1:12pm. Not getting replies to texts can be pretty damn stressful, but the ever-more common ‘read receipt’ on various messaging apps makes it a whole lot harder to convince yourself someone’s not ignoring you!
Don’t like bees? That’s fine, fair enough. Maybe they’re always going berserk around you and stinging you. That would be because of a torturous pesticide they suffer called neonicotinoids that drives them insane and forces them to stray from the hive and die. This appears to be the main factor causing bees to disappear, and a third of our global food supply is going to disappear along with them.
For those of you who don’t know, Bill Murray is a pretty wacky guy and one of the most unique Hollywood actors there is. As an example, here’s the story of how filmmaker Theodore Melfi cast him for St. Vincent, in cinemas this December.

We’re living in scary times, people. Some say things are getting worse, and others maintain that the world has always had these problems; we’re just more exposed to them now through social media platforms and the Internet in general. We’re also exposed to a lot more “twerking fails” and “cats doing funny things” videos, but that’s another tragic matter. However, sometimes these things getting thrown around global news are complex ever-changing issues and it’s not necessarily clear to everyone what the issue is and what it means. People are often too embarrassed to admit they don’t know anything about a country’s politics or current international relations, and think they must be dumb. Or alternatively, they might go the extra mile and look it up on the Internet. This will usually result in a daunting and saturated Google page revealing various up-to-date news articles from all over the world, which inform you in tricky language the most recent events and expect you to know about the other 90% of background information already. So here’s three things going on in the world right now that are definitely worth keeping an eye on, explained right from the beginning through to the current situation. I guarantee those things you keep hearing in the news from the Middle East and West Africa and Ukraine will be more interesting to you and become a frequent topic of conversation once you understand them a little better.

Have you ever pulled up to an intersection, looked at the signs and panicked because you didn’t understand what the hell they meant?
