  • 1986 Mets: A Year to Remember [Video]

    Hey Mets fans, remember what it feels like to be proud of your team? With losing records every season since 2008, it may be hard, but there was a time when the Mets were great. In 1986, the classic Mets lineup including Darryl Strawberry, Lenny Dykstra, Gary Carter, Mookie Wilson, and Keith Hernandez beat the Boston Red Sox and won the World Series. It was the greatest moment in the lives of many Mets fans and it was all documented on glorious VHS. If you were a kid in New Jersey or New York at the time, chances are you owned a copy of “1986 Mets: A Year to Remember,” encased in that hard plastic reserved for only the classiest of videos and featuring a photo of Keith Hernandez and his timeless coif. Relive those glory days with these clips that can’t even be ruined with the awfully dated sound of Duran Duran’s “Wild Boys” and Glenn Frey’s saxy “You Belong to the City.” You might even forget that their current record is 59-67. At least they’re ahead of the Phillies!

    The fantasy world of Dungeons & Dragons, encompassing numerous games and books, celebrates it’s 40th birthday this year, but chances are that you, a Level 10 Cool Dude, had no idea. For so many years, it seemed like the people interested in Dungeons & Dragons, or D&D, were the sort of people who carried tarot cards in velvet satchels in middle school converted to Wicca in high school.

  • Sorry Smokey, The New Dodge Charger Pursuit Cop Car Will Not be Out-Run

    Dodge released their new Charger SRT Hellcat this week and speed freaks went absolutely bonkers for it, but just be aware if you decide to purchase one of these speed demons, Johnny Law won’t be far behind with a suped up Hellcat (if you can imagine that). With 370 horses and a Hemi V8, the Pursuit is just dying for a high speed chase. The brakes also have a serious upgrade with the front fascia actually includes brake ducts—a feature normally reserved only for cars that see the harshest track duties. Along with a special gear shifter on the steering wheel to make room for laptops and donut boxes (we had to), the seats are also custom able to adjust to an officer with a gun or radio on their belt. Oh and did we mention the steel trunk and bullet proof doors? Yeah it’s a beast. Don’t mess with it.

  • Who Is Bambi, The Female Banksy? [22 Photos]

    Street artist Bambi, dubbed “the female Banksy” by the British press, has been active around London for the past 5 years. Her portraits of pop culture figures such as Daniel Craig, Usain Bolt, Amy Winehouse, and David Beckham have made her a star in the art world but, much like Banksy, there is a mystery regarding her true identity. Supposedly she attended St. Martin’s Art College and when not painting is actually a pop star. True identities suggested for Bambi include M.I.A., Paloma Faith, Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), and even Adele. With a meteoric rise in the art world and patrons including Rihanna, Angelina Jolie, and Brad Pitt, having a celebrity alter ego makes sense for Bambi. Check out more from Bambi at Walton Fine Arts and let us know who you think she is or if her true identity even matters.

  • Scientists Program 1000 Robots To Work Together; Forgot To Watch “The Matrix”

    Some eggheads, including Michael Rubenstein, Alejandro Cornejo, and Professor Radhika Nagpal of Harvard’s Self-Organizing Systems Research Group, have released this video illustrating the capabilities of a swarm of Kilobots. The tiny robots, about the size of a penny, cost about $14 each. They are given commands to form two-dimensional shapes and are able to do so on their own, with no human interaction. After the command is given, four robots start off the process. Then the others follow, using infrared sensors to dictate their x- and y-coordinates in the shape. These 2D creations are fine and dandy and make for a decent parlor trick, but the hope is for the robots to next combine in three dimensions. What’s the deal, scientists? Are none of these nerds familiar with The Matrix or the Borg race from Star Trek? Robots coming together ever ends well for us humans. Thank God we have Neo on our side.

  • Watch Korea’s “Miss Sexy Back” Contest…For Science? [Video]

    South Korea, ever on the cutting-edge with its Samsung smartphones and LG televisions, has now shown itself to also be a leader in the sociological aspects of sexuality with a new, though-provoking pageant known as “Miss Sexy Back.” 25 contestants took part, with the winner awarded an ambassadorship…for lingerie company Sexy Cookie. Too many beauty pageants wrongfully focus on the overly made-up faces of young ladies, so Miss Sexy Back, a pageant where the faces of the entrants are concealed, is a breath of fresh air. Let’s hope that this competition spawns more of the same, where we can see past the superficiality of one’s face and instead bask in the glory of their badonkadonk.

  • These Gravity-Defying Sculptures Look Like They’re Drawn In The Sky [15 Photos]

    New Zealand sculptor Neil Dawson has worked as a full-time sculptor since the late 80s. His large-scale installations, often crafted from aluminum and stainless steel, can be found all over the world. From far away, many of his creations appear to be illustrations effortlessly floating in the air, but upon closer inspection they are huge works of metal intricately suspended by wires. The illusions are especially prominent on his illuminated works, which during a particularly inebriated expedition may immediately sober one up and make them swear off the hard stuff. Check out some of Dawson’s amazing creations below and see the rest at his website.

  • Larry Ellison’s Billionaire Lifestyle Is Even More Incredible Than You Think

    August 17 marks the 70th birthday of Oracle’s Larry Ellison, the third richest man in the United States and the fifth richest man in the world. With a net worth of about $50 billion, Ellison is not far behind Berkshire Hathaway bigwig Warren Buffett, but their lifestyles couldn’t be more different. Whereas Buffett prides himself on his frugal lifestyle, living in the same Omaha house for over 50 years, Ellison buys up mansions like a middle-aged spinster buys cat food. When Bill Gates is flying to Africa to cure malaria, Ellison is flying one of his military jets to a cash-strapped country to purchase more military jets. We can’t criticize Ellison. It’s his money, he can do what he wants with it. And let’s face it, we all fantasize about what we’d buy if we were billionaires, and malaria cures and stucco houses in Omaha don’t make for great fantasies. So let’s take a look at the life of Larry Ellison, a billionaire who lives like a billionaire.
