The war on drugs has been an abysmal failure since it’s half-witted inception. It is based on many faulty assumptions, not least of which is the ridiculous idea that treating normal people who…
The universe is unbelievably big – trillions of stars and even more planets. So… there just has to be life out there, right? But where is it? Why don’t we see any…
Ever heard the saying “less is more”? The “Bubble Porn” video is only as lurid as your preconceptions. It’s like that scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Luke is about to…
They’re all there! LV-426, Arrakis… Okay, maybe not all of those. Still, cool video.
Filmmakers Keith and David Lynch used images from vintage Victorian phenakistoscope discs in this music video for “The Hope of a Favourable Outcome” a song by Canadian composer Carly Paradis. If you’re…
One of the oddest manifestations of the Cult of Conspicuous Consumption are “unboxing” videos. Just search “unboxing” and you’ll find tons of YouTubers documenting every stage of unpacking a newly purchased product…

Africans are reaching out to poor, cold Norwegians through Radi-Aid, a charity effort that seeks to place radiators in the homes of Norway’s frigid families. Okay, well maybe not.
