  • 28 GIFS That Perfectly Describe a Morning in a Manhattan Starbucks

    If you’re like me, your first thought is something along the lines of:  And your second thought is: I need it now. Why is this? Well because the only way you’ve gotten through life/education/anything up to this point is with the help of caffeine. And it’s no longer socially acceptable to drink Mountain Dew mixed with Red Bull so… Here we are. Madly addicted to caffeine. And by caffeine I mean coffee. And by coffee I mean Starbucks. Sweet, sweet Starbucks. Oh yeah. I’d sell my soul for the stuff. Perhaps by agreeing to pay boatloads of money for a cup of Joe I already have… Oh well! I don’t question it. Rather I ask, myself: Of course I do. Coffee is delicious. It was love at first sip. Of course I could always be cost-effective and make a pot of the stuff myself. But what am I? A scientist? I can’t make that stuff. Ok so I can. I just can’t make it taste magical, like Starbucks can. Seriously. What do they put in there? Fairy dust? Unicorn tears? Maybe it’s just heaps of sugar. Or maybe it’s science. I vote for science. But really They could put anything in there. more »

  • 50 Animals Taking Perfect Selfies [Photos]

So essentially Gallaher would put these life saving tips on every pack of cigarettes, while slowly killing you from the inside. Isn’t it ironic. Don’t you think? 1. How To Extract A Splinter “Fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot water nearly to the brim, and press affected part of hand tightly against mouth of bottle.

  • Ranking The Most Powerful Militaries on Earth Based Off Their Firepower [Infographic]

For a simpler evaluation of military power, we turn to the Global Firepower Index, a ranking of 106 nations based on more than 50 factors including overall military budget, available manpower, and the amount of equipment each country has in its respective arsenal, as well as access to resources.

They want to get up and like… Go for a run or something. For everyone not on crazy pills, this is what 6am is like for a non-morning person. 1. Be asleep.

  • That Time We Drove An All Electric Harley-Davidson Through The Streets Of Manhattan… [Photos]

    A few weeks back Harley-Davidson stormed into NYC with their new Project LiveWire bike we’ve been telling you so much about. Since we’re such huge fans of the brand we got the opportunity to be one of the first in America to actually test drive the bike on the streets of Manhattan. Our lasting impression, beyond the fact that it rides similarly to a traditional Harley-Davidson minus the growl, is the fact that it has effortless, white-knuckle pick me up that will take you from stoplight to cruising in a matter of seconds. A very impressive trait you won’t find in any other all-electric, street-legal vehicles on the road today. If you have interest in Harley-Davidson we certainly encourage you to visit projectlivewire.com to follow the Project LiveWire tour and learn more about testing the bike at your local stop. We’re working on getting pictures of our test drive around Manhattan and the event, where we sipped cocktails and mingled with Harley-Davidson executives, so keep following us on @RSVLTS for more.

  • A Car-Juggling Robot Is The Future Of Entertainment

    Did you ever go to a monster truck show as a kid and see those transformer-type cars that would destroy the other vehicles? Sure, it was incredible back then, but these days with the Playstations and Interwebs, the kids just aren’t interested in our dated ways of car disposal entertainment. What will win the young ‘uns over? How about a 70-foot-tall robot that will juggle cars? Okay. Former NASA engineer and inventor Dan Granett is currently raising $2.3 million for his BugJuggler. Powered by a diesel engine, the robot would be controlled by an operator using a haptic interface wherein the operator’s arm movements would control how the BugJuggler moved. Granett is hoping the project will attract corporate sponsors like Red Bull who will hold huge events with the robot. We hope so, too. Learn all about the robot in the video below then keep up with the project at BugJuggler.

  • Make the National Drinks of Mexico and Cameroon for their Matchup Today

    The last leg of Group A will go up against each other at 11:30 EST and it promises to be a solid head to head. Chicharito and the young Mexican squad face off against Eto’o and his Cameroon team. What better way to get a full day of World Cup games started than to make the drink of choice for both teams native land. Cameroon drinks palm wine or white mimbo, which is fermented sap from palm trees. The sap is extracted from the tree and sometimes an alternate method is used by felling the entire tree. Where this is practiced, a fire is sometimes lit at the cut end to facilitate the collection of sap. Mexico is known for it’s tequila. Straight, neat, mixed, however you’re drinking it is fine, but if you’re in Mexico we suggest always drink it straight or sip it neat.

  • What If Other Planets Were as Close to Earth as the Moon?

    Visualization by Ron Miller @ Black Cat Studios Our moon is a pretty big object. If it was orbiting the sun and not Earth it’s big enough to be a respectable planet in its own right. The Moon is a quarter the diameter of the Earth. Only Pluto has a satellite that is larger, in proportion to the size of the planet it orbits. What if a celestial body like Jupiter, the biggest planet in our solar system, was as close to the Earth as our moon? Would it fill the night sky? Illustrator and author Ron Miller sought to answer the question using the reference photograph above.

  • A Map Of Where Bars Outnumber Grocery Stores

    6 years ago, FloatingSheep created a graph of the United States that showed which cities had more bars and which had more grocery stores.

Recently, statistician Nathan Yau set out to make a more detailed map. Using data from the Google Places API and showing the magnitude of the difference, Yau created a new map of the US at his site, Flowing Data. Then he took it a step further and created maps of other nations. With 303% more bars than grocery stores, Spain has their priorities straight!
