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.

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.

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.

Oklahoma protesters threaten to “secdee” if Cosmos isn’t cancelled

Furious with Neil DeGrasse Tyson o their Fox channels and his anti-Creationist “knowledge” and his truthy “facts” have gotten a group of people in Oklahoma so hopping mad, they’ve threatened to secede from the Union if Cosmos isn’t pulled off the air. You know, to form a freer union with one god, one religion, where science is outlawed and the truth about what we know about the world squashed. Good times those will be.

Science discovers a particle that could be a new form of matter. No biggie.

It’s called a tetraquark, and it could be a new form of matter only found in the heart of neutron stars and theoretically, quark stars:

Very simply, the traditional model of a neutron star is that it is made of neutrons. Neutrons consist of three quarks (two down and one up), but it is generally thought that particle interactions within a neutron star are interactions between neutrons. With the existence of tetraquarks, it is possible for neutrons within the core to interact strongly enough to create tetraquarks. This could even lead to the production of pentaquarks and hexaquarks, or even that quarks could interact individually without being bound into color neutral particles. This would produce a hypothetical object known as a quark star.

North Korean official executed by flamethrower, because… there is no because in North Korea
