On Saturday, smartphones in Hawaii lit up with the ominous warning, "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."

Lunch Meat Will Indeed Travel Through A Wormhole, At Least According To This Charming Short Film

Video. We first wrote about filmmaker Olga Osorio last year when we caught her short film reStart - a suspenseful kidnapping tale with a time-loop twist.

Experimenter's Gender Can Skew Science

The Last Thing I Want Right Now Is Another Nostalgic Star Wars Movie

It's hard to comprehend given how we just went through the release of The Last Jedi, but in just over four short months, a new Star Wars movie will be out. While Last Jedi honoured Star Wars' legacy by passing the torch to a new generation, with new possibilities, Solo will rosily indulge in Star Wars' past. And I think I might have had enough of that.

Let Me Tell You About The Violent Diarrhoea I Got From 'Raw' River Water

Going into university, I thought I understood all of the different ways poop could look. My digestion is generally bad, and my eating habits don't help. But after returning from a four-day-long river trip, I realised just how naive a pooper I was. More »      

The Crimes Of The Guardians Of The Galaxy, According To Their Pants (And James Gunn)

In the prison scenes in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, our gathered heroes unite first as inmates rather than cosmos savers -- with matching yellow prison garb. Their trousers, however, don't just have a cool spacey design on them, they actually fill out a long list of felonies committed by our not-so-good-guys. More »

Who Wants A SNES Classic When You Can Have This Sexy See-Through One Instead?

BMW Smashes World Record By Drifting An M5 For 8 Hours

Outside of racing, I don't think anyone buys a car because the same model was used to break the world record for the longest drift in eight hours. Well, that didn't stop BMW from modifying an M5 so it could be refuelled mid-drift, sticking it on a circular track and destroying the previous record of 144km. More »      

The Greatest TV Shows Of The Past 10 Years

We may be in a Golden Age of television, but it wasn't always so shiny. Back in 2008, things were rough.

Discovery Of Extinct Burrowing Bat Tells Mysterious Story About New Zealand

All but three land mammal species living on New Zealand today were brought there by modern humans, beginning around 800 years ago - and all three of those native mammal species are bats.
