Loch Ness Monster captured on satellite photography? Sure, why not.
Some amateur monster hunters found what looks like the outline of some kind of prehistoric beast swimming under the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland on Apple Maps, so obviously it’s Nessie. It sure does look compelling, and public satellite maps are always accurate and never ever have weird artifacts show up through incorrect image stitching. Not ever.
Several actually. Got knocked over by Mick Jagger on his way to a limo in 1993, hung out once with Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth in Michigan… 1997 I think. That same year, I randomly met Patti Smith and Natalie Merchant twice in two days as they were sightseeing around Ann Arbor, Michigan, once at a Whole Foods, once at a coffee shop. Had a beer with Mojo Nixon around 2000 at a bar in Asheville, NC. He was playing at a club across the street in 30 minutes, but wanted to go over to this other bar to get good and sloshed first and he just happened to sit next to me at the bar. Several years ago I met Michael Ironside… really cool guy, though he made me more nervous by teasing me about how nervous I was. I think that’s it, though I feel like I’m missing somebody.
Kepler telescope spots the most Earth-like exoplanet ever discovered
While the number of exoplanets discovered by scientists via the Kepler telescope numbers in the thousands, most of the planets found have been gas giants, because gas giants are much easier to spot. But if you’re looking for an Earth 2, the closest thing so far is Kepler 186f, a small rocky planet only slightly larger than Earth that orbits in the comfortable “Goldilocks zone” around its star where it’s not too hot, not too cold. We may never know if there’s life on Kepler 186f, but its discovery is certainly a damn good start in the search for other Earth-like planets out there.
X-Men director Bryan Singer facing charges he buttsecksed a 17 year old, so that's not good
With X-Men: Days of Future Past hitting theaters in the US at the end of May, the timing couldn’t be worse for Bryan Singer, who is facing very serious accusations that in 1999, he stuck his wang in the b-hole of a 17 year old. Perhaps that then puts Singer in the perfect spot to direct the next Elmo movie.
So I'm about to take shrooms for the first time tomorrow (with friends I trust at their house). I barely smoke weed and when I do, I don't always handle it the best. It doesn't help that I've never been super high either (actually one time I was with weed and hash but I didn't wanna deal with responsibility in that condition. so I just slept it off). Anyways... Should I really be trying shrooms?
If you trust your friends, and you remember it’s just a psychedelic and anything bad will go away eventually, you’ll be fine.
SatanHimself here again! I just wanted to thank all of you for your thoughtful support. I have a court date in 3 weeks and I'm confident that I'll get spit out the other side of this very soon and be able to keep my humble home and get my life back to normal. I very highly recommend everybody learn to live with nothing for a month or so. Seriously, it's very liberating to have to deal with potentially losing everything in your life. It helped me prioritize the things in life that really matter.
That’s awesome. Shit is always the worse when you’re right in the middle of it, but as long as you make it out alive on the other side, things usually turn out okay.
Scientists can now grow real vaginas in the lab. Vaginas. Sex toys will never be the same.
For women and girls born without vaginas or ones that are partial or deformed, the good news is that scientists can now grow you a brand new real live vagina from your own cells. For everyone else, the good news is that scientists can now grow perfect vaginal replicas of other people’s vaginas, for… reasons. Where do I pre-order?
Several historians believe this jewel encrusted onyx goblet gathering dust in a Spanish museum is the Holy Grail
Even though the cup that Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper was described by Biblical accounts as a simple onyx goblet, legend has it that after Jesus’s death, the cup was disguised as a much more ornate drinking vessel, where it remained hidden in Israel for hundreds of years, where it was stolen by Muslims in the Middle Ages, given to Christians in Egypt, where it was then given as a gift, centuries later, to King Fernando I of Castile, and then eventually ended up in a museum as “just another jewel encrusted royal goblet”. But now, several historians feel very certain that this cup is the last cup Jesus drank from. It’s like the Holy Grail of Biblical history or something.
The shitty, shitty winter North America got this year? One reason might be Chinese smog. Thanks, China.
The Great Lakes are still over half frozen, much of the northeast got snow today, in the middle of April, and the last few months of winter were particularly bad this year, especially through the upper midwest and northeast US. All this in the middle of being told that the planet is getting warmer and warmer. Apparently, a good deal of our awful winter can be blamed on the insane amounts of pollution in east and south Asia. Thanks, guys.
AMC wants to turn Billy Corgan's wrestling career into a reality show
Don’t think that Billy Corgan doesn’t have much else to do these days. He’s working on not one, but two new Smashing Pumpkins albums (minus most of the original Pumpkins of course), but he’s also got his own amateur wrestling league called Resistance Pro. And now, it looks like AMC is ready to develop an unscripted reality show about Corgan and his wrestling dreams. If Andy Kaufman is really just in hiding and not actually deceased, now would be the perfect time for him to come out.
Oculus, the horror movie starring Karen Gillan is in theaters now, after being in limited release for quite a while. With an influx of horror movies this time of year, this one tries to stand out with an oddly unique story. But how does it do? Is it a great horror flick, or should it have stayed locked up in the psych ward?
Scientists invent an injectable oxygen particle to let you breathe without breathing
Just trying to inject raw oxygen or atmospheric air into your bloodstream would be really bad— I wouldn’t recommend it. But when airways are obstructed, every second counts as the oxygen level in your body drops. Now, science has created the perfectly sized injectable oxygen particle by gently wrapping a handful of oxygen molecules in lipids, creating microscopic gel-caps of oxygen that are the bite size for your red blood cells, providing emergency oxygen for when breathing normally isn’t an option.
