Listen Alert

Inside Amy Schumer imagines an on-call emergency service that will listen attentively to anything you want to talk about. Well, almost anything. We wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes a real thing.

Adidas x Wings + Horns Team Bomber

Part of Wings + Horns’ collaboration with Adidas, the team bomber is a wicked combination of Adidas’ track sweaters and the MA-1 – three stripes, pockets, the works. It also has a zip-off hood.  Drops 7/11 for $495.

Ski-Jump Takeoff

Amazing footage of an F-35 Lightning II fighter jet as it takes off from an insanely short runway that works like a ski jump to angle the plane into the air. Stick around, and you’ll be treated to a vertical landing too.

Tooli 4-in-1 Desktop CNC Machine

Tooli is a compact but scalable CNC machine that works with four heads: a plotter for drawing and cutting, an airbrush for painting, a laser for engraving and cutting and a liquid dispenser that doubles as a pick-and-place tool.

Hillbilly Schnauzer

We’re not sure what Ollie the Schnauzer is trying to say here, but we think he sounds a bit like Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel from The Simpsons in dog form. Somebody needs to songify this now.

Why CGI Is Ruining Movies

We best enjoy movies that meld reality, practical effects, and limited CGI. Too much CGI feels consequence-free to us. Here, Story Brain explains “The WETA Effect,” which kicked off an era of unreal and unrelatable action sequences.

Tap Dance Medley

The very talented choreographer and tap dancer Sarah Reich dances to a medley of diverse and rhythmic tracks, accompanied by the guys from Postmodern Jukebox. We’re surprised her platform doesn’t catch on fire by the end.

Great White Hopeful

Hillary Rae and her friends went cage diving and got their money’s worth when a great white shark just went for it and tried to chew through their cage. This is one of the times when the line between “best” and “worst” is incredibly thin.

CRKT Guppie Multi Tool

To us, it looks more like a piranha than a guppy, but that doesn’t diminish the utility of this steel multitool, packing an adjustable wrench, Phillips and flat blade screwdrivers, a removable LED light, a bottle opener a 2? knife blade.
