  • Incredible POV Video From Fully Electric Formula Car

    If there was any doubt that electric cars aren’t just for old men with ponytails and college students in hemp t-shirts, the new FIA Formula E Championship will surely quash it. Conceived in 2012 and now in its inaugural season, FIA Formula E is the highest class of competition for one-make, single-seater, electrically-powered racing cars. In this video, Formula 1 Racer Lucas di Grassi, driving for Audi in the Formula E championship, straps a GoPro to his electric car and showcases the incredible power of these vehicles. The car can go 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and reaches speeds of over 140 mph on this track. With the interest sparked by this competition, electric car technology is sure to grow by leaps and bounds in a short time.

  • Weird Al Spoofs Pharrell With “Tacky”

    Weird Al’s 14th album, “Mandatory Fun,” comes out this month and the master of parody songs has declared it his final album. Don’t worry, Weird Al isn’t retiring. He just realized that digitally self-releasing songs works best for his medium, which tends to be topical. Most of the pop hits he parodies on the new album have already been tackled by YouTube users, such as Pharrell’s “Happy,” rewritten by Al as “Tacky.” But even if others are getting in on the parody game, no one has the talent of Weird Al and his band when it comes to reproducing the music so perfectly. Check out the video for “Tacky” below, featuring comedians Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, and Jack Black and be sure to pick up “Mandatory Fun” when it’s released.

  • Saving Private Ryan Re-Cut As Expendables 3 Trailer

    Did you enjoy “Saving Private Ryan” but felt that it was too much of a downer? This trailer lets you see how the World War II drama would look if it was made as an over-the-top action movie like “Expendables 3.” The result is reminiscent of the way Michael Bay took a real-life story of kidnapping and murder and turned it into a wacky, comedic caper with “Pain and Gain.” Fun!

  • Manhattanhenge Is Back and Taking over the Streets of NYC

    This weekend was particularly special for NYC, having it’s now infamous Manhattanhenge taking place where the sun sets true west of midtown.

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

    There’s only one true way to compare military strength, and thankfully we haven’t had the opportunity to compare powerful countries in recent decades  — though with a powder keg in the South China Sea, standoffs in Ukraine, and proxy wars throughout the Middle East, we are alarmingly close. 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.

  • Revisiting The Epic 1998 Yankees vs Orioles Brawl In GIF Form [31 GIFS]

    It was the 8th inning and the Yankees were up by seven runs. The Orioles flamethrower Armando Benitez was on the mound and he intentionally threw a pitch into the back of Yankees’ Tino Martinez. The benches cleared and what ensued was, in our humble opinion, the best brawl in MLB history. 50 steroids fueled beasts were throwing sucker punches and the fight spilling into the dugouts where it finally subsided after six minutes. It was awesome. Let’s revisit the action in GIF form.

  • Photographer Brings Spam Email Stories To Life [6 Photos]

    Cristina de Middel worked as a photojournalist for 12 years before tiring of the stress of editors’ demands resulting in misrepresentations of the events she was supposed to document. If she was going to capture fiction, it might as well be her own ideas. One such idea is her series “Poly-Spam.” Cristina yearned to stage the incredible stories in spam emails she had collected over the years. She spent 6 months working on the project, making sure each character and their surroundings was portrayed just right. The result is a series of photos that make the spam writers human and almost makes you sympathize with their maudlin stories. To see more from the series and other amazing projects, check out Cristina De Middel Photography.

A feat that hasn’t been accomplished in any sport in 50 years. With Johnny Football and LeBron back in town there’s no better time to visit Cleveland.

  • 8 Minimalist Posters Of Classic Films

  • ‘TMNT’ Motion Movie Posters Introduce Each Turtle Half Shell by Half Shell

    Print is dead, long live motion posters. At least until 3D motion posters come on the scene. Although there’s nothing like a clever well designed movie poster, a new trend for the blockbuster movie scene are ‘motion posters’, a short clip highlighting a specific scene or character, in this case the heroes in a half shell. These 15-second clips feature Ralph, Leo, Donny and Mikey running, jumping and skateboarding through the streets of New York and toppling down a snow mountainous region. All four videos feature non-stop action sequences that give a detailed look at the otherwise mysterious turtles. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again; Don’t screw it up, Bay.

  • Bird’s Eye View Airport Photos Are Surprisingly Peaceful [12 Photos]

    When you think about airports, you think about the stress of arriving hours before your flight; the stress of getting fondled and interrogated by TSA; the stress of making it to your gate before your flight leaves despite arriving at the airport hours ago. And if you’re afraid of flying, there’s that, too. Airports are not a peaceful place. At least, they aren’t from our point of view, here on the ground. But when you look down at airports from satellite images, they don’t seem so bad. Just expanses of runways and some cute little planes. Even the world’s busiest airports, like Heathrow and JFK, look serene. For more of these calming airport images, check out Holding Pattern. Just don’t let these pictures fool you, airports are still awful.
