ELECTRIC VEHICLE OF THE DAY:

An electric Porche / Dappered.com

And it was a Porsche. OK. It was a Porche design. The first, apparently. And it’s from 1902. Word.

FOREVER ROLLIN’: Worst. Time capsule. Ever. I’ll be standing in the corner now.

LIVEN UP YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA: You’re welcome.  (NSFWish)

OH THAT’S NASTY: Critters and such in Bejing’s smog. *Cough*

SWINGING IN THE RING, JUST SWINGING IN THE RING:

FISTICUFFS AND HEAD BUTTS: It’s what I might do were I to meet the inventor of this nonsense.

SCIENCE! Hope for some of our follicly challenged brethren?

POW! RIGHT IN THE KISSER: Mars get’s the dust knocked out of it. This is pretty wow.

ANCIENT MYSTERY SOLVED? Maybe? This seems like a rather plausible explanation to one of the more interesting archival mysteries out there.

SUIT UP!

I am having a really hard time deciding what part of this story I love the most. The fact that the sole member of Mexico’s Alpine Ski Team is reportedly German royalty named Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, that he is a business man – photographer – pop singer, or that he chose this Mariachi themed design for his Olympic suit. Alright, it’s the suit and it’s not even close. More over here.

PRIME SUSPECT? This has some people nervous. Some are happy. Others, not so much.

WANT: I realize that speaks a great deal about who I am as a person. Whatever. #misanthropesunite.

PYRAMIDS: They’re not just in Egypt. Also, they’re not just on dry land. Nifty.

POPCORN TIME: Wow. This is something. 

WHAT THE DUCK?

Then there’s this. Yup. This is happening. Just not, you know, excessively.

SITE OF THE WEEK: I really really really really really really really want to take advantage of this. So much.

DAMN NATURE…You are freaky. 

BIG DATA: The way companies gather data about you and how they use it gets noticed after a most unfortunate incident. 

INCOMING!
