Comic Sans has gone from being the ubiquitous text choice of early web Angelfire pages to being that font that everyone thinks sucks.
Man, cats are so dang smart that they can pretty much replace actors in movies these days. I’m watching this wonderful scene reenactment of The Empire Strikes Back and I’m not sure I even miss the real Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker.
Our favorite puppeteer Barnaby Dixon is back with a kickass puppet raptor that packs so many moves that it totally feels like it has its own mind.
In the latest episode of BBC’s Spy in the Wild, a robot ape equipped with a spycam happens upon a wild orangutan that recently found a saw.
Iceland’s board of tourism is doing something right because the country has become a vacation hotspot in recent years.

I find the history of numbers so much more fascinating than the application of numbers. Who cares about learning calculus, when you can geek out on the brief history of numerical systems?
If you’re from a place where it snows a lot (I’m not), and where people don’t annoyingly complain about how cold it is all the time (not me), and are totally prepared for the winter months (also, not me), you’re probably not as surprised as I am about this seemingly never-ending stretch of badass sn

Forget about dropping $300 on the Nintendo Switch just to get your next Super Mario Bros. fix. As Jason Cichon demonstrates, all you need is a big pile of plastic bricks and some mad Lego skills to build a custom side-scrolling Super Mario level.

The US one dollar bill is still old school. In fact, it has the oldest design of all US currency being produced today.

We loved Disney movies as kids, but we might secretly love them even more after we’ve grown up. They’re almost always a fun ride, they almost always make our cold hearts feel something, and they almost always have a wonderful animation sequence that takes you to another place entirely.
