  • Reminder: American Gladiator-esque Winter Storm Names Are Made Up By The Weather Channel

    No, you’re not crazy. Blizzards did not have names until last year. Especially not ridiculous ones. If you live in the Northeast, this upcoming winter storm is going to render the rest of your week useless. You might have to shovel up to 30 inches of snow off the back tires of your Kia Sorrento before driving into your mailbox then giving up entirely. Winter storm Juno is going to suck. And it’s going to suck even worse because all of a sudden everyone is calling it “winter storm Juno.” Why are we calling it “winter storm Juno,” by the way? Because The Weather Channel decided to start naming blizzards last year. Really. That is the only reason. The Weather Channel says it is naming winter storms because “hashtags are an intrinsic part of social media.” This is not the reason. The reason is that this is a marketing event to gin up interest and scare the bejesus out of people until they watch The Weather Channel. But let’s take them at their word. Maybe “Juno” is an aberration. Maybe their next storm name won’t be bring to mind a Greek god that will pummel and powerhump the Atlantic coastline more »

  • The 16 Hottest Carl’s Jr. Commercial Girls of All-Time

    Carls Jr.’s eye for spotting up-and-coming modeling talent is almost as good as ours at RSVLTS.com. Almost. We’ve been pitching these guys to partner on photoshoots for like two years and maybe one day they’ll jump at the opportunity because it’s starting to seem like they troll RSVLTS (and other guy sites like COED, BroBible, Andy Gray’s SI Hot Clicks, etc) on a regular basis, see who we’re dubbing the next big thing and tap those girls for their Super Bowl commercials. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. In fact, we love it. The burger giant has an uncanny amazing ability for locking down the most beautiful women in the world to star in their commercials. Yeah, one look at the fast food company’s nutrition facts will convince you that none of the girls ever come close to eating Carl’s Jr., but they still get it done, which is impressive. Here we countdown the most beautiful women to star in Carl’s Jr. commercials and the list reads like an all-star team of hotness.

  • Here’s The Exact Moment The Colts Felt The Allegedly Deflated Ball Against The Patriots

  • A Brief History Of Kate McKinnon’s Justin Bieber Impression

    With a pitch-perfect spoof of Justin Bieber’s grey-toned attempt to wear big-boy pants in the #MyCalvins ad campaign for Calvin Klein, Kate McKinnon once again proved why she is a Saturday Night Live rock star. But while the CK ads may be the best example of McKinnon’s Bieber impression, she’s actually been grabbing attention with it for a little more than a year, so I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the evolution of Kate McKinnon’s Justin Bieber transformation.

  • Explore the Creepy Ruins of Chernobyl Through the Eyes of a Drone

    A drone armed with video equipment recently flew over the skies of Pripyat, a Ukrainian city that was home to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. After the disaster, the city was abandoned, though some curiosity seekers have explored the ruins of the irradiated city. Danny Cooke took the footage while working on a 60 Minutes segment, providing a rare aerial view of the city. Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl captures some startling contrasts, filming abandoned, decayed swing sets alongside resurgent plant life. In some cases, the plant life has taken over buildings, invading abandoned swimming pools. Fast decaying isotopes have let radiation levels drop to acceptable levels for exploration in the Zone of Alienation, though no one still lives in Pripyat, and many of the buildings have decayed to unsafe levels. Though Pripyat is abandoned, several villages in the area are home to handfuls of people in the zone. Via Popular Mechanics

    More than 8,000 people have died from Ebola in West Africa since February 2014 and it has spread beyond the three countries initially affected. So, it’s an epidemic, right? Or is it an outbreak? What about H1N1? The 2009 pandemic infected people around the world. But, so did the SARS epidemic in 2003. What’s the difference between an epidemic and pandemic? What about diseases like malaria and Dengue? Dengue fever infects between 50 and 100 million people each year in countries all over the world. So that’s the same thing as a pandemic? Not quite. Maybe you’ve seen headlines about West Nile Virus, Chikungunya fever or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. And what are emerging and reemerging diseases? It’s time to brush up on the vocabulary that can help you understand just what infectious disease experts are trying to tell us.

  • Martin Luther King Jr: 28 Poignant Quotes From The Man Who Changed America

    Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) accomplished more in 39 years of life than any man could wish to accomplish in 100 lifetimes. As we prepare to celebrate a holiday weekend that bears his name it’s important to take stock in the impact he had on the lives of millions of Americans. MLK infamously got a C in public speaking class during his first year at seminary school in Chester, Pennsylvania but he turned things around to establish a reputation as one of the greatest, more quotable orators in American history.
