  • 24 Celebrities With Eerie Old School Doppelgangers

    Are today’s celebrities reincarnations of historical figures? Or maybe they’re Highlander-esque immortals leading lives as entertainers all the while secretly beheading each other in an effort to win “the prize” of ultimate power and knowledge. Or perhaps, now this is a stretch, they just sort of look like these other people because when billions of people have lived on the planet, everyone’s bound to look like someone else. I don’t know the answer, but Jimmy Fallon really does look like that Turkish dude. 

  • Helicopters Playing Hockey, Because Canada [Video]

    Helicopter pilot, super successful entrepreneur, and all-around awesome Canuck Bradley Friesen has added another incredible accomplishment to his life with this video he made of his helicopter taking part in a hockey game. Apparently, when you are the inventor of an automatic paper towel dispenser and a hangover cure, you use your spare time making videos with your helicopter joining in on the ice alongside your friends from the WHL or making a Doritos commercial featuring a bunch of hot models which is currently a semi-finalist for the Crash The Super Bowl contest. Life is good for Bradley Friesen.

  • 15 People Who Had 15 Minutes of Fame in 2013

    “Fifteen minutes of fame” is a Warholian quote that expresses everyone’s shot at brief stardom—whether that state of being widely known is fame or infamy is something that is entirely unknown in 2013. With the Internet growing to unprecedented levels, it has given plenty of people opportunities to engage in hooligan-like antics in order for people to take notice. And, in the latest installment of Yearbook13, RSVLTS has taken the time to salute the top fifteen people who have etched their own little chapter into the books of Internet lore.

  • Build Your Own Wright Brothers Flyer

    December 17 marks the 110th anniversary of the first successful flight by the Wright Brothers. Now you can pretend to be your favorite Wright (team Wilbur for life, yo!) and build a replica of their 1903 flyer using these blueprints and a touch of elbow grease with a dab of perspiration. Remember when you were a kid and you spent aChristmas day building the Ghost Busters headquarters? Well this is just like that, except instead of spending all day just to watch ectoplasm disappointingly seep through a plastic grate, you’ll be flying.

  • One Man’s Complete Dominance Of Spotify Right Now Is Terrifying

    Business Insider asked Spotify to send over the top Christmas songs getting streamed right now and apparently Spotify listeners only want to spend Christmas with one man, and no one else. That man is Michael Bublé. Basically, listeners have his 2011 smash album, “Christmas,” which has sold more than 3 million copies in the U.S, on repeat. Only Mariah Carey shakes up the list with “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

  • This “Amazing Machine” Puts a Santa Hat on a Classic Rube Goldberg Take

    Rube Goldberg probably didn’t celebrate Christmas, but that doesn’t mean his wild machines can’t take on the holiday spirit. This “Amazing Machine” uses toys we used to love as kids and fuses them into the ultimate Rube Goldberg one shot machine. Rick Moranis would be proud. I picture him being a quirky children-shrinking-inventor in real life as well.

  • Unreal Macro-Photos of Natural Symmetrical Snowflakes

    Russian photographer, Alexey Kljatov, built a macro add-on for his camera, set it up in the backyard of his house in Moscow and took some of the most beautiful close-up shots of snowflakes ever caught on camera. Some of these symmetrical geometric shapes are so intricate you immediately think they were rendered on a computer, but Alexey walks us through the entire process on his blog here. I capture snowflakes at open balcony of my house, mostly on glass surface, lighted by LED flashlight from opposite side of glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark woolen fabrics as background.

  • Frank Sinatra’s Self-Designed Rat Pack Bachelor Pad

    Instead of spending all your Christmas money on gummy cola bottles and G.I. Joe figures this year, save it for Frank Sinatra’s Manhattan penthouse, which is up for sale for just $6 million. You could be the owner of the the residence that the “chairman of the board” didn’t just live in, but also designed.

I’m sure the majority of them are filled with compelling gifts like an over priced shaving set or a Batmobile golf cart, but while those gifts are all and well, that’s not what you need.

  • 4 Maps Showing The Evolution of Travel Times In The United States

    We’ve come a long way baby. These 4 pictures show how drastically travel by rail changed in a little over a century, from a 6 week trip to get from New York to the Mississippi River in 1800 to a 3 day trip from New York to California in 1930. With that increase, today’s trains should get you there in no time, right? Let’s do a little research. Hmm…well, still about 3 days. Nice progress, Amtrak!

  • A Major Snowstorm Paralyzes Cairo and Jerusalem For The First Time In 112 Years [29 HQ Photos]

    LA Times – Snow coated domes and minarets Friday as a record Mideast storm compounded the suffering of Syrian refugees, sent the Israeli army scrambling to dig out stranded motorists and gave Egyptians a rare glimpse of snow in their capital. Nearly three feet of snow closed roads in and out of Jerusalem, which is set in high hills, and thousands in and around the city were left without power. Israeli soldiers and police rescued hundreds trapped in their cars by snow and ice. In the West Bank, the branches of olive trees groaned under the weight of snow. In Cairo, where local news reports said the last recorded snowfall was more than 100 years ago, children in outlying districts capered in white-covered streets, and adults marveled at the sight, tweeting pictures of snow-dusted parks and squares. In other parts of the city, rain and hail rocketed down.

  • Are You Right-Brained Or Left-Brained?

    The brain is a complicated piece of machinery scientists still full don’t understand. Each lobe of the brain serves a different function and within those lobes are sub-functions, but many researchers argue that certain types of people can be divided into halves of the brain. According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. Additionally, people are said to prefer one type of thinking over the other. For example, a person who is “left-brained” is often said to be more logical, analytical, and objective, while a person who is “right-brained” is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful, and subjective. BuzzFeed created this video to test your brain, you be the judge.

  • Jon Lajoie’s New Holiday Classic, “Merry Christmas Exclamation Point!” [Video]

    Comedian Jon Lajoie, who can be seen on “The League” as Taco, has released the perfect Christmas song for that simple message you text to people you know but not too well: “Marry Christmas!” It will surely become a new Christmas classic as we become increasingly more connected to each other while somehow also losing our social skills. It almost makes me feel bad for doing just what he sings about every year, but not enough to change my ways or anything. Merry Christmas!

  • Nirvana ‘Unplugged’ Aired 20 Years Ago (Iconic Concert)

    By far the most iconic “Unplugged” set from the MTV archives, the Nirvana set composed of mainly lesser-known material and cover versions of songs by The Vaselines, David Bowie, Meat Puppets and Lead Belly. The Album for the set was released after Cobain passed away and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and has become the group’s most successful posthumous release, having been certified 5x platinum in the United States by 1997. “We’d seen the other Unpluggeds and didn’t like many of them, because most bands would treat them like rock shows—play their hits like it was Madison Square Garden, except with acoustic guitars.” said Dave Grohl, Nrivana Drummer. The show was played on November 18, 1993, but aired on MTV on December 14.
