  • Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Will Work, Says High-end Aviation software

    Elon Musk, the brilliant billionaire wonder boy, has created a transportation concept called the Hyperloop that we’re sure you’ve heard of already. Naysayers came out of the woodwork to scoff at the beautiful sketches that had no “substance”. The physical prototype is still years away, but Musk might be on to something. Ansys (ANSS), a maker of very  used to design planes, trains, automobiles and all manner of other things, has fed the Hyperloop specifications into a computer and come away impressed. “I don’t immediately see any red flags,” says Sandeep Sovani, the director of land transporation strategy at Ansys. “I think it is quite viable.” The Loop will shoot pods through a tunnel via air pressure at 800 MPH, bolting the pods from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes. Tweaks, however, must be made in the design and bearings throughout the tube, but in an overall simulation the design and concept works. Advantage Musk.  

  • Lakers Unveil “Hollywood Nights” Black Uniforms

    The Lakers need a change. That’s apparent. You stick with what works, until it’s broke. Then you fix it. Easy, right? Sometimes. But every now and again a little mix-it-up does a team good. While these new “Hollywood Nights” jerseys might not fit the classic style of the Lake show, in my honest opinion, I think they’re straight fire. Somehow I think The Black Mamba had something to do with this.

  • Most Thoughtful Prank Ever. Guy Finds His House Plumbed With Beer

    Over the years, Russell Brown has played plenty of gags on his group of friends, so his brother Sean – with buddies in tow – decided to team up with the help of the Tui Brewery to get him back. Sean and his friends decided to plumb beer through Russell’s home in Auckland, New Zealand, tapping every faucet (even the shower) to pour cold beer – to the surprise of Russell and dismay of his wife.

  • Console Wars: The Playstation 4 vs. the Xbox One

    Since the end of the Nintendo 64’s lifespan, Nintendo has subsided in the gaming industry—occupying a separate, and more profitable, niche in the video game market. In fact, the Wii was the best selling console of the seventh-generation. According to VG Charts, the Nintendo Wii outsold its seventh-generation counterparts by a landslide of 22 million units. But, the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 are the two consoles that possessed the most cutting-edge graphics and the best technology—overall appealing to the “hardcore” console gaming market.

  • 16 NFL Teams Who Have Less Rushing Yards Than Adrian Peterson

    Week 2 of the 2013 NFL Season is in the books. And, the reigning MVP of the NFL—Adrian Peterson– opened up the season for the Minnesota Vikings with sheer explosiveness. With a 78-yard carry for a touchdown, Peterson quickly made a case as to why he deserves to be considered the best player in the NFL. In fact, Peterson’s greatness is so apparent that he has—thus far— singlehandedly trumped almost half of league’s team totals for rushing. Coming only nine yards shy of Eric Dickerson’s seemingly unreachable record in 2012, Peterson is once again proving why he belongs in the pantheon of the NFL’s legendary backs. Before beginning the list, Peterson currently has 193 yards on 44 attempts—an average of 4.4 yards per carry. And, teams with fewer total rushing yards are as follows:

  • Mike Tyson Throwing Darts Blindfolded Does The Unthinkable

  • 10 People That Would Make A Better Robin than Bieber

    Well word’s out. Looks like the Biebs is up for the role of Robin in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie. Not the best compliment to accent Affleck if you ask me, but that’s Hollywood. Let’s face it, love him or hate him, Affleck was badass in both The Town and Argo (and Surviving Christmas, watch it) and in my eyes, redeemed himself for all his faulty past roles. All the critics who were up in arms about every role cast during the Nolan era were left silent after each movie was released. This is different. This is Justin Bieber. This is the kid who’s one shaved head away from a Britney Breakdown. This is the kid who peed in a wash bucket in the basement of a bar  before saying “F*ck Bill Clinton” not more than a month ago. The kid who Keyshawn Johnson, our favorite game time analyst, almost had to slap a biebs for acting a fool around his neighborhood. We’ve collected a list of ten people we think would make a better Robin than Bieber. Aaron Taylor-Johnson The kid proved himself as a certified superhero in the Kick-Ass franchise and we think he’d do a heck more »

  • Why The Seahawks Have Best Home Field Advantage in America

    The Seattle Seahawks haven’t lost a home game since Christmas Eve 2011.  On Sunday night they broke the Guinness Book of World Records for loudest stadium in the world when they were recorded at 136.6 decibels against the San Francisco 49ers at CenturyLink Field.  It has become no secret that the Seahawks have one of the NFL’s best home field advantages, but how has a franchise that has never won a Super Bowl created the best atmosphere in American Sports? Mariners Decline It wasn’t that long ago that Seattle was a baseball city.  The Mariners had a lot to offer in 1990s with two “once in a lifetime” prospects in Ken Griffey, Jr. and Alex Rodriguez. They would knock on the door in the playoffs but could never breakthrough.  Ichiro Suzuki would follow those stars and would be an immediate hit on a team that won an American League record 116 games, but they too couldn’t find playoff success.  Since 2001, the Mariners have failed to reach the postseason. Only twice in the past ten years have they even had a sub .500 record.  As a result attendance has been on a steady decline from an average of 43,300 in 2001 to more »

  • 6 NFL Teams That Peyton Manning Could Put a Beatdown On In 2013

    For those NFL viewers who saw the season opener; you can all attest that Peyton Manning more or less shredded the Baltimore Ravens defense for seven touchdowns, which tied the all-time record for a single game. Then in week 2, the Manning Bowl, he shredded the Giants with 307 yards and two touchdowns. But, with Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, and the breakout tight end Julius Thomas, it is clear that the Denver Broncos boast an offense that could make the 2007 New England Patriots look like their 1990 counterpart—look it up. So, in honor of Manning’s nine touchdown effort in the first two weeks of the season, here are six teams that Peyton Manning could beat down worse than the two reigning Super Bowl champions.
