Android smartphones with edge-to-edge screens, like the Samsung S8 or the Essential phone, have found elegant ways to deal with the devices’ forward-facing cameras and sensors. But if you’re an Android user who’d rather have a garish notch up top like the iPhone X, a new app called XOutOf10 will add a screen-blocking…
Scientists spend their days hypothesizing, experimenting, and analyzing in order to find evidence to better understand our strange Universe. Sometimes, that requires playing the didgeridoo and then falling asleep.
You surely remember a time you said a word to yourself and started laughing. Something about the syllables bouncing around your mouth just didn’t make sense. Maybe the word was “booby” or “piss” or “dingus” or “moist.” Maybe it was the name “Brumbpo Tungus” or “Scrimmy Bingus.” Well thankfully, now science is here to…
Watching this gave me intense flashbacks to every scene in the 2002 Spider-Man movie where Willem Dafoe’s voice floated out from behind an expressionless Green Goblin mask. What a bad idea, right?
Ryan Reynolds was named GQ’s Man of the Year. And, to celebrate, he interviewed himself. Of course, Reynolds thrives on self-owns, so this “interview” with his “twin” ended up exactly as you’d expect.
When I watch a funny movie scene, I laugh. Sometimes really hard. Sometimes I might even remember the lines in a quiet moment of the day and chuckle to myself.

It’s inevitable: when a new trailer for something like Star Wars hits the internet, fans will turn to the internet to broadcast their reactions. The team who assembled the trailer for Rogue One decided to do the same thing.
If you’ve been to the app store on your phone recently, you’ve probably noticed a slew of clever apps that let you virtually swap faces with someone standing next to you. It’s a fun party trick, but Imgur’s JakeMarshall91 took it to another level by swapping faces with ancient sculptures in a museum.
Our new favorite Twitter feed adds hilariously dark titles to the gosh-darn earnest cover art of vintage YA novels. Behold Paperback Paradise, which according to its bio is “The world’s #1 used book store,” before coaxing all ye who enter to “Come visit us at the edge of eternity.”
