This Star Wars parody of "Bohemian Rhapsody" certainly isn't the first or only one of its kind, but there's something about it that we can't resist -- and it's usually so very easy to resist silly parody songs. The acting is hammy, the effects aren't great, and the lyrics aren't perfect, but there's just something about it we love. The Force maybe?
The good people at Movoto previously decided that you'd have to spend $117.2 million for Tony Stark's mansion, but that's just to buy it. To live in it, you'd have to spend almost $10 million every year to keep it up to your billionaire playboy standards, and what's the point of a nearly $120 million mansion on a cliff if you dont?
The news that actress Gal Gadot will be playing Wonder Women in Man of Steel 2 is just hours old, and already the Internet has expressed strong opinions about it. One of the most surprising reactions came from the Twitter account for the DC Women Kicking Ass blog, which has equated past experience with acting ability.
Stealing is bad, mmkay? That's a lesson the Chamblee, Georgia police are trying to teach Kaveh Kamooneh, who plugged his electric car into an outlet at his son's school while he was waiting for the boy to be finished with tennis practice. The sum total of his crimes? About five cents. Must have been a slow day in Georgia.
More Batman Vs. Superman news! No, we don't have a real title yet, but we do have a Wonder Woman -- Gal Gadot, a relative newcomer who spent two years in the Israeli army and was seriously awesome in the last two Fast and Furious movies. But more to the point: they're putting Wonder Woman in the movie?! Holy COW.
NASA will hold a live Google Hangout today to presumably talk about how great the pictures from Cassini have been (as well as some science stuff, probably) and where it's going in the future. If you like amazing space pictures as much as we do, watch the hour-long live chat with NASA scientists at 3:30PM EST.
This frame-by-frame recreation of the infamous shopping mall car chase from Blues Brothers is nothing short of incredible. And you thought the carnage was fun to watch when it was actual glass getting smashed to pieces -- it's even more fun when it's stop motion clear plastic LEGO for some reason. New Oldsmobiles are in early this year!
We would have settled for candy that wasn't bad for your teeth, but that wasn't enough for Christine Lang of the biotech company Organobalance. No, Lang and her colleagues decided that candy should make up for its years of causing cavities by actively preventing them, and they've finally achieved their goal. Take that, parents everywhere.
Danny Wells, the actor who played Luigi on the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, passed away last week, which is a real downer for the 30th anniversary of Luigi's introduction in Mario Bros. this year. The actor portrayed Luigi in the show's live action segments, voiced him for the animated segments, and was generally a huge part of our childhoods.
“Space Lawyer” sounds a profession that’s too awesome to exist, but it’s not — you really can practice space law. To learn more about the subject, we spoke to two legal experts from the University of Nebraska College of Law Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program, as well as a legal news reporter for Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.
Every year since 2011, Anthony Herrera has created awesome cut-out Star Wars snowflakes and put them up on his website. Now his latest batch of templates is available to download and print out for free, just in time for the onset of winter. You won't even have to bury yourself inside a tauntaun for warmth! You know, unless your heater is broken.
Normally we're not big fans of the "splice dialogue from a TV show together so it sounds like the characters are speak-singing a famous song" phenomenon on Youtube, but even we can't deny that it somehow feels completely natural -- nay, even seductive! -- when the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation does it. Make it so, indeed.
Today we learned two things: one, that scientists think that they might be able to channel the chemical properties of urine to conduct electricity, and two, that they've decided to test this out by building robot hearts that pump pee. We're pretty sure that this isn't what The Jetsons had in mind, but we're intrigued nonetheless.
Deck the halls with Ninja Turtles! Also, learn about Tippy the Fainting Squirrel, buy a Banksy print about destroying capitalism from Walmart, of all places, and wait in breathless anticipation for Katee Sackhoff to tell us what the heck she's working on with this morning's Geekolinks.
This week, we talk about the three D's: Drones, Diane in 7A, and Dating Advice from Eric Smith, author of Geek's Guide To Dating. A pretty fun time is had by all, unless you're Diane, because not only was that guy a jerk to you, but you also don't exist.
It's officially December, so now we can all freak out about the holidays as much as we want to without people getting mad at us! Hooray! If you're the type to celebrate the season by sending your friends and families festive cards, then you should check out the new line of Christmas cards by P.J. McQuade, who we've featured on the site before.
Something has survived comet ISON's close brush with the sun — in a good and non-ominous way. When ISON's orbit passed extremely close to the sun on Thanksgiving, no one was sure if it would survive, and for a little while it completely disappeared. Eventually, something emerged on the other side, and NASA is still trying to figure out what.
If malware that can infect your computer through its speakers sounds like some kind of horrible nightmare, that's the appropriate reaction and demonstrates that your brain is functioning normally. However, it's probably a good thing that science discovered it, because there's a possibility that it's already circulating.
Called "The Ascension of the Jackdaw" by the user who uploaded it, Whacken Blight, this surreal Assassin's Creed IV glitch depicts the crew of the Jackdaw hovering, suspended and terrified, over a giant ship-shaped hole in the ocean's depths. They then one by one zoom off into the sky as the ship emerges from the hole. It's pretty magical.
Everyone had an opinion (including us) about Bachelor producer Elan Gale's tale of sticking it to an unruly airline passenger on his flight. So of course, now that he's finally admitted that he faked the whole thing, everyone has an opinion about that, too. But unlike the original Diane story, these tweets are actually funny. Zing!
