Amit Agarwal: "Wouldn’t it be nice if Twitter had an Export button? You search for something, maybe a trending #hashtag or your brand name, and all the matching tweets would get saved in a spreadsheet. And the archive would update itself as new matching tweets are posted on Twitter in the future. Show More Summary
Sounds like: Hadouken, Diplo, A-Trak Song: Body Language - Really Love What's so good? I wish I was good enough to DJ. I mean, I get beat-matching -- I'm sure it wouldn't be the worst thing you've ever heard in your life. But I'd probably...Show More Summary
Byron York: “Chris Christie is in better shape than you think. There was a widely-held assumption that Christie’s Jersey Guy persona wouldn’t play well in Iowa — that he is just too hot and too confrontational to get along with [...] The post Why Christie Has a Better Shot Than Many Think appeared first on Political Wire.
Black is white, day is night, cats and dogs are living together, and a breastfeeding summit told attendees that they wouldn't be allowed to breastfeed at the event. The world has gone crazy, everybody. Get some bottled water and find a table to crawl under. Show More Summary
Remember how badass Legolas looked in The Lord of the Rings when he would rapidly fire off arrows at hapless orcs who actually thought they had a chance to kill him? Well that’s nothing compared to Danish archer Lars Andersen, who is crazy enough to study ancient depictions of archers in an effort to teach himself long-lost archery techniques. Show More Summary
Nailed it. This is the God of War Kratos tattoo some poor schmuck got on his calf. As you can see, the artist responsible probably shouldn't be giving tattoos. Or giving anything for that matter. I wouldn't even trust a handjob fromShow More Summary
Several years ago, Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern (below) made headlines when she said that homosexuality was a bigger threat to our nation than terrorism. And wouldn't you know it: She's just filed three separate bills to make life harder for LGBT individuals... Show More Summary
Insomniacs fall into nostalgia too easily. When it's just you, you and all this lonely, you'll start to dive into memories you normally wouldn't in the daytime.
It’s been a while since we've had something likened to Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica on our television screens, and while I wouldn't be foolish enough to say that The 100 fills those voids, I will say that it’s the best sci-fi television has had to offer in a long while.
You probably wouldn’t hear Pepsi overtly tell customers to stop drinking Coca-Cola. They might make veiled attacks on a non-specific “competitor” in an advertisement. But without empirical evidence for why Pepsi is better than Coke,Show More Summary
I wouldn't mention this nonsense from the NYT except I got one of those fitness-trackers that prompts you to take 10,000 steps a day, and there's no way to get close to that (given a sedentary job) without a 1.5-2.5...
Are you thinking of vaccinating your kids? I wish you wouldn’t. I know what you’re going to say. “You’re a measles germ. You’re biased.” But maybe you’re the one who’s biased. Ever thought about that? I see your charts. I hear you calling the resurgence of measles “devastating.” That’s hurtful. “There’s more measles now,” you […]
Quebec’s Mont Saint-Sauveur is one of the most popular ski resorts in the area. But rather than slog up to the mountain in an SUV only to spend the night in an impersonal hotel, wouldn’t you prefer to stay in your own luxury mountain retreat? Set on 11 acres, with ski in/ski out access, this […]

It's something that most players wouldn't even think is possible: playing a game in a certain way that jumps you completely to the end, without beating its final battle. But there it is, just executed in Super Mario World. Read more...
Dean Israelite, "Project Almanac's" director is a first timer. I wouldn't thinks this is a good thing to do the first time you get a shot at making a Hollywood film.
Advertise here with BSA The process of creating a seamless tileable background is never easy. If you’re not familiar with PatterNodes it certainly wouldn’t come as a surprise – the program is tremendously useful but doesn’t have the same cult following as other design suites due mainly to the fact that it is a brand new product. PatterNodes is […]
Good design makes complicated things simple. Great design does it while inspiring us. Think of the first time you spun an iPod thumb wheel and realized you wouldn’t need instructions to figure this thing out. These experiences stop us in our tracks with the realization there are smart people out there using their powers for good.
Like lightsabers and time-travelling DeLoreans, the Caterpillar P-5000 Powered Work Loader — or Power Loader for short — in Aliens is one of those props that ended up being the real star of the movie. Who wouldn’t be excited to comeShow More Summary
