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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • This is Why Peyton Manning is the Best Quarterback in the League

    Peyton Manning was icing his ankle last week in a cold tub during practice. With his helmet on. This photo of Manning went viral after it raised some questions and eyebrows. Gray Caldwell and Stuart Zaas of Denverbroncos.com released a statement explaining why Peyton was wearing his helmet and watching a tablet while icing his ankle. Earlier this season, Manning and tight end Julius Thomas found themselves in the training room instead of practice on a Wednesday. Not wanting to miss out on mental reps, Manning took matters into his own hands. With his injured ankle in the cold tub, the quarterback kept his helmet on to listen to the play calls from Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase, who was on the practice field. Simultaneously, he watched game tape on his iPad. Of course this is how Peyton Manning spends his time in the pool… pic.twitter.com/y9XTOJ68Xd — The Whistle (@TheWhistle) December 11, 2013

  • Newly Discovered 8th Grade Exam From 1912 Would Baffle Students Today

    Oh how the mighty have fallen. The United States used to be the pinnacle of innovation and education. Used to be. Last week standardized test scores for 15 and 16 year old teenagers in math and science coordinated worldwide by the Paris-based Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development were released and the U.S. did sub-par to say the least. The U.S. slipped from 25th to 31st in math since 2009; from 20th to 24th in science; and from 11th to 21st in reading, performing below the OECD average in mathematics with 481 points, and a score indistinguishable from the average for reading and science. In more recent news an 8th grade test dated back to 1912 was discovered in Kentucky donated to the Bullitt County History Museum. To say the least the test questions looked difficult, as far as our standards go today. Here are a couple of questions from the exam: -Through which waters would a vessel pass in going from England through the Suez Canal to Manila? -During which wars were the following battles fought: Brandywine, Great Meadows, Lundy’s Lane, Antietam, Buena Vista?

  • How To Make ‘merica More Awesome (From An American Living In England)

    After two decades of eating turkey in the heartland, this Thanksgiving was the first I celebrated outside of the country.  (Go ahead and pour a little gravy for a brother abroad.)  Spending the past two months in England has truly made me appreciate all that Americans have to be thankful for—not least of which is the weather and the food.  (Really Britain, rain and shepherd’s pie again?)  But while America is great for all of the reasons that people traditionally cite—freedom, democracy, iHop—what really makes America special is that when the world hands us lemons, we make fried lemons.  America’s amorphous roots have allowed us to be cultural cherry-pickers, liberally adapting the best grub, garb, and games that our colonizers and colonizees have had to offer.  With this American tradition in mind, I set out to find five aspects of British culture that, dare I say, could make the greatest country in the world even greater.

  • Martyn Ashton’s Road Bike Parties [Video]

    Last year, mountain bike trials legend Martyn Ashton wowed the world with his original “Road Bike Party” video where he swapped his usual mountain bike for a Pinarello Dogma 2, the road bike that won the 2012 Tour de France. He somehow managed the impossible, tackling obstacles made for a mountain bike on the road bike. When his initial video received millions of views, Ashton set out to film a sequel. In between work on the new video, he took part in the Animal WD40 Action Sports Tour, where he fell from a bar 3 meters from the ground, breaking his back in the process. Confined to a wheelchair since the accident in September, Ashton was still determined to finish the video, and with the help of fellow professionals Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill, his vision was realized with the release of “Road Bike Party 2.” Watch the new video and then the original and be amazed at the crazy talent that these athletes possess.

  • The 50 Most Horrifying Friend Zone Moments of 2013 [50 Photos]

    The friend zone is nothing new, for even Hades, god of the underworld, could only get his love Persephone to come hang out with him by feeding her pomegranate seeds; but an event in 2013 ensured that the “friend zone” was here to stay: It was added to the Oxford English Dicitonary. noun informal a situation in which a platonic relationship exists between two people, one of whom has an undeclared romantic or sexual interest in the other: I always wind up in the friend zone, watching them pursue other guys Now, to be fair, we can’t be sure of the context of these photos; we may have just caught an otherwise happily together couple at an awkward moment, but unfortunately in these pictures they epitomize that 10th circle of Hell that Dante woefully omitted, the “friend zone.”
