During mating season, male koalas can let loose bellows that are way deeper than seem possible due to the koala’s size. This deep noise is pure sex to female koalas, getting their panties all moist and attracts them to the males over long distances, like if you were able to spontaneously croon with the deep baritone of Barry White whenever you wanted. As it turns out, male koalas can produce such sexy vibrations not because of the length of their larynx, but because of folds in the pharanyx just above the larynx, which makes them capable of going as low as 9.8 hz, a frequency that makes Barry White sound like a little girl.

I’ve heard good things about RunKeeper and MapMyRun, but if you want more than just distance, Fitbit is good for all kinds of info.
The oldest known stone-tipped projectiles have been found in Ethiopia, clocking in at around 280,000 years old. That’s about 88,000 years older than Homo sapiens. We know that we were not the only intelligent, tool building hominids— there were ones that came before us and existed at the same time as us, and this new find confirms that the rise of abstract intelligence was a long, slow process that occurred through many different hominid species over time. We weren’t the first, and we probably won’t be the last either.

If you’ve played Magic: The Gathering, you know that it’s a hell of a lot of fun until it’s not. And you know exactly when it stops being fun— when it becomes too expensive to build better decks, too expensive to keep up with friends and locals who spend way too much money on the game, and when it becomes too much of a pain in the ass to keep up with new releases. With the release of five new Commander decks, you might want to pick the game up again, since the recently introduced Commander model is meant for fun, equal, casual play. Don’t worry about whether your opponent has some rare should-have-been-banned card that will wipe you out in one move, just sit down, pour the Mountain Dew and play.
