IHC After Dark: Kid does an epic bass smash at the end of his middle school talent show performance

This kid is way too rock n’ roll for your stupid school. The entire performance isn’t bad, but skip to about 3:15 to lead into the bass smashing awesomeness.

This worm could be the first organism to exist entirely on a computer

While the idea of humanity building entirely new organisms from scratch is a loooong way off, maybe never, there is at least a starting place. The OpenWorm project aims to build a fully operational nematode worm, with all its organs and eyelets and whatnot working just as it would in the real world, only inside a “computer”.

The secrets to the fastest pinewood derby car in all of Cub Scouts

With just a wedge of wood, plastic wheels and weights, there aren’t a whole lot of variables to make a super fast pinewood derby car, but in this video, you’ll find out why things like putting the weight at the back and having one wheel off the ground are some of the secrets to derby domination.

Ronald McDonald gets a new look. Guess I’ll get used to it.
After having the same outfit for decades, McDonald’s launched a new, snazzier Ronald McDonald with a red and yellow suit, so it’s kind of like when the Doctor regenerates with a new outfit. Oh, and Ronald McDonald is now on Twitter.

Why do you do what you do? — asked by Anonymous

I have no idea honestly. Because it’s better than staring at the wall.

Live in New York? Need a condom? Get it delivered.

Not that it’s terribly difficult to pop into one of the million corner stores and tiny groceries in NYC to grab some condoms if you’re hitting the bars for some action, but if you do happen to find yourself in a situation where you desperately need a condom but don’t have one and you’re in the City, a new service will deliver a pack to you within an hour. Because that’s totally not a mood killer when it would take five minutes to swing in somewhere and grab some when you’re “getting more beer” or whatever. But if you do like to have your condoms hand delivered, you’re in luck.

Georgia governor signs “GUNS GUNS EVERYWHERE” bill into law. No, not that Georgia, the one in the US

Georgia governor Nathan Deal today signed the Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014 into law, which is the most wide-sweeping pro-gun open carry piece of legislation anywhere currently in the US. The bill would allow guns in churches, bars, school zones, government buildings and airports. Because nothing prevents gun violence like letting anyone over the age of 21 pack heat wherever the hell they want, whether there’s kids, alcohol or both mixed in. The idea is that by allowing more armed citizens, it will deter those who might go all homicidal out of the fear that plenty of other bystanders will also be armed.

Taco Reviews: Doritos Locos Fiery taco from Taco Bell

It’s not often that I’ve felt guilty about getting something for free, but the Doritos Locos Taco I got at a Taco Bell promotion several weeks back is one of the greatest things I’ve ever eaten at any price, and I would love to get more of them someday (when I get a job!). It had been years since I’d bothered to actually get a taco at Taco Bell, as I usually get two of their quesadillas–one steak, one chicken–and a Frutista Freeze instead. I got those things anyway, but this time I had a little something extra to go along with them.

FDA to begin regulating e-cigs, with the first wave of regulations coming down today

Ever since e-cigs came on the scene and blew up as a somewhat “safer” and less intrusive way of getting nicotine, they’ve existed in somewhat of a legal gray area, but that’s all about to change. Today, the FDA will hand down the first set of regulations of e-cigarettes and e-cig liquids, including rules about not selling them to minors, requiring health warnings on packaging and requiring that manufacturers disclose what’s in their products. This does not yet ban any kind of flavoring or introduce regulations on where e-cigs may be consumed, though many lawmakers would like to see additional rules in those directions as well.

Morning musical weirdness: Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” played at 33 rpm

Sort of haunting and beautiful and a bit Nirvana-like.
