I think we can all agree that the lifehack beach blanket/sandbox thing is a real fail.

We should be more concerned with the fact that, at some point, ~reality~ lacked dimension, and space and time. But it was also infinitely hot. And dense. But apparently it wasn’t a thing so fuck you.

I want to see a video of that guy surprising the inflation genius telling him that he just proved he doesn’t actually exist.

This Redwood was growing on the side of a really steep hill.  After about 40-50 years of growth it realized it was going to fall over if it kept growing in the same direction.  Enter "auxins".  By determining the ideal growth pattern for an organism, as well as whole bunch of other fun stuff, they’re as close as a tree can get to having a central nervous system.

Tevatron shuttered after 27 years due to lack of funding
Formerly the world’s most powerful particle accelerator (before CERN, of course), the Tevatron at Fermilab in Chicago was responsible for discovering the top quark, among other contributions to particle physics. According to scientists at Tevatron, the group was closing in on the elusive Higgs boson, an undiscovered particle tying the Standard Model of particle physics together. Friday marked the last time the particle beams would be turned on at the facility, due to a decision by the federal government to cease funding the lab. The annual budget of the Tevatron? $35 million.
Just for reference, $35 million would fund the Afghanistan war for 144 minutes.

Particles found to travel faster than light

namdiez:

Researchers on the OPERA project, in conjunction with CERN, have determined that neutrino particles beamed between the two facilities arrived at the target destination 60 nanoseconds faster than light would have.

I mean, OF COURSE

Suicide by Roller Coaster
This is a hypothetic euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster,  engineered to humanely – with elegance and euphoria – take the life of a  human being.

The 3-minute ride involves a long, slow, climb — nearly a third of a  mile long — that lifts one up to a height of more than 1,600 feet,  followed by a massive fall and seven strategically sized and placed  loops. The final descent and series of loops take all of one minute. But  the 10g force from the spinning loops at 223 mph in that single minute  is lethal.

This is nuts. The creator, Designer/Artist Julijonas Urbonas, tells Discovery he doesn’t see his suicide machine as being about death, but as “an intellectual and artful departure from the  world.”

Michelle Bachmann completely misses the point about CO2 emissions

I mean… what?  This is like the Miss South Carolina “thing”.  I feel like I have brain damage.  It’s funy though, so watch.
