They found the deer stranded while ice fishing and decided …

Just Like People: Peahens Like a Man Who can Dance

Because scientists are usually bored and easily distracted a group from Purdue University recently decided to find out what makes a peacock so attractive to the ladies. To do so they strapped a tiny camera to a peahen and watched where she looked. As it turns out the peahen wasn’t much impressed by the peacocks …

The Saddest Cup of Noodles

Nothing to see here, just a Cup of Noodles shoveling snow with what looks like a criminally inefficient shovel-thing. And yes I’m told that it’s actually called “Cup Noodles” but that just seems way wrong to me and after a weekend of eating Cups of Noodles almost exclusively I’m convinced leaving out the “of” sounds …

Everyone knows that these days the fashion in design is to make everything green. And if not just to save material or create less waste then even better if the new contraption actually helps to clean up the mess all your other toys create. Then we can all feel better and pretends it’s not us …

Pointy: Japanese Pentagonal Oranges

Yet again Japan proves to be the place to go to get crazy food. This time it’s oranges in the shape of a pentagon. Unfortunately these don’t grow naturally five sided the farmers strap a form around the oranges and let them grow into it. Seems like cheating to me. The farmers have been working …

Time to Move: Sinkhole Swallows Family’s Car

Mother Nature is at it again trying to kill people, or possibly just protesting the ownership of an ugly car. This time it’s in Buckinghamshire, England. So you know Nature, it’s not nice to judge people by the car they own. If we had the means we’d all be driving hovercraft but that’s just not …

They Do Exist: Magnetic Monopoles

[notice]Warning: Science Content![/notice] When you hear the words “Magnetic Monopoles” what do you think about? I obviously have an image of those episodes of The Big Bang Theory when the guys went to the North Pole to look for magnetic monopoles to help prove string theory.

Let it Snow: How Much Snow Does it take to Cancel School

Redditor atrubetskoy created this map to help demonstrate how much snow is required before school gets cancelled in different parts of the country. I found this to be very disheartening. Look how much of it is green. That means any snow and school is cancelled. How sad is that? I have gone to school with …

Must be Aliens: Robot Discovers New Life Under Antartica

Back in 2010 the National Science Foundation was doing a lot of experimental drilling in Antarctica. We knew about the drilling back then, at least I did because I pay attention, but the report on what was found was just released last month. I’m guessing this is because the scientists needed time to edit the …
