One clever teen solves Newton's 300 year old riddle
Long before computer-driven physics simulations, trying to come up with a solution for a real-world physics problem took a tremendous amount of calculation by hand. Three hundred years ago, Isaac Newton asked if anyone could calculate the exact trajectory of a ball, taking into account both gravity and wind resistance. Recently, a 16 year old from India took that challenge and beat it.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Worf, the friendly Klingon in the Star Trek universe, but actor Michael Dorn would love to bring Worf back as the captain of his own Federation ship, even if it’s in a low budget fan film, and even if he has to write it himself.

Israeli scientists develop weed that doesn't get you high. You're missing the point
With pushes for medical marijuana in many states across the US, you’d think that pot smokers were some incredibly health-conscious people. And while marijuana does have a number of pain-relieving health benefits, the point is that people just want to get high. So for the smarty-pants Israeli scientists who are so proud of themselves for developing weed that won’t get you high, you can keep that shit.
First, NYC was one of the first areas in the US to ban smoking in all restaurants and businesses, then they were one of the first to ban the use of transfats, and now Mayor Michael Bloomberg would like to see New York as a leader in the prohibition of super sized mega gulp sodas.

Samsung launches new Chromebook, tiny Chrome desktop. Woo yay

Wait... Iron Patriot is in Iron Man 3. And it's not Norman Osborn?
Hot off the presses, here’s the first photo of James Badge Dale on the set of Iron Man 3 in costume as Iron Patriot. But he’s not playing Norman Osborn, AKA Green Goblin, because Sony still has the movie rights to Osborn through Spider-Man. But Osborn is Iron Patriot, and his stealing an Iron Man suit to become Iron Patriot is part of his story. Oh whatever, I’m sure the movie will still be cool as hell.
