Scientists Find Evidence of Deep-Sea Fish Migration Route

Marine biologists have found evidence of a previously unobserved deep-sea migration route more than 4,500 feet beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, according to a new paper.

Saturday Night Social: RIP Takaya the Sea Wolf, You Were Better Than Us All

Saturday Night Social: RIP Takaya the Sea Wolf, You Were Better Than Us All

Until news broke of his passing, I honestly can’t say that I knew who Takaya the sea wolf was. I also can’t say I knew that “sea wolfs” were a thing, but I’m glad now that I know. I’m also now entirely devastated about Takaya’s passing, having read this gorgeous write-up about his life and heartbreaking death in The Guardian.

Most of Takaya’s story is one of resilience, survival, and...

Hell yes, we want the recipe for Harley Quinn's glorious Birds Of Prey egg sandwich

Hell yes, we want the recipe for Harley Quinn's glorious Birds Of Prey egg sandwich

Few foods in recent memory have been as cinematically fetishized as Harley Quinn’s egg sandwich, a simple concoction of egg, cheese, and bacon that somehow serves as the most important MacGuffin of Warner Bros.’ recent Birds Of Prey —way more than any big ol’ fancy diamond, anyway. Indeed, Cathy Yan’s camera pretty much positions this simple, fat-soaked concoction as Margo Robbie’s true love...

Watch NBC's Cool Car Show Proving Grounds For Free On YouTube

As far as shows about three white guys and cars go, Proving Grounds is damn decent. What really like about it though, actually, is the format of the test track. In every episode, cars get put through a course that is uniquely realistic. And challenging!

A lot of people I know and like work on Proving Grounds, so it’s hard for me to claim I could objectively review it. But, I do dig...

Florida Man Defies Odds, Finally Does Something Good

Florida Man Defies Odds, Finally Does Something Good

It’s not often that I get to write good news about my home state of Florida, which is fair because good news so infrequently comes out of the hellhole (said with love) that is the Sunshine State. However, when we’re not busy derailing the course of democracy, eating people’s faces, or shaving our legs in public pools, it turns out that Floridians do, in fact, have some good left in them. Or,...

Hey, Trump Voters: He Called A-Rod For Advice While A Pandemic Rages. You Happy Now, Fuckheads?

The coronavirus doesn’t give a fuck.

And that’s what makes it so scary.

White people can’t ignore it. Rich people can’t buy an antidote. And those that haven’t been infected can’t even find a leader to comfort them. The U.S. has become the new home of COVID-19, as our country has more confirmed cases than anywhere else on the planet, over 111,000 and climbing.

It will get worse before it gets...

Whistle while you quarantine with these cheerful COVID-Disney parody songs

Creativity has been a very strange thing in the time of COVID-19, as prolonged bouts of isolation, increased internet time, and just general high-anxiety living have all conspired to push people’s brains in a whole host of weird, often musical directions. Many of these attempts to bring a little sonic delight into the lives of others have been interesting, and even occasionally...

As a citizen of Houston who’s originally from up north, I complain about the copious traffic, enormous flying cockroaches, and murderous climate that are found here. All this fades away when I visit pretty much any local car meet. The lack of road salt, massive freeways, diverse population, and location on a major port add...

It feels like only yesterday (devastatingly, because it was) that a group of celebrities were joining together to instruct the public on how to effectively wash their hands. The stars of Contagion, a film you might have heard about with more frequency recently, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Matt Damon, and Jennifer Ehle all got together, separately, and offered up their sage wisdom...
