Thus far, we have seen emojis used in various fun ways … in music videos, as tattoos and even as Hallowe’en costumes. Today, we see that Bill Nye the Science Guy has come up with an inventive way to use emojis as a teaching tool. Click the embed above to watch Bill Nye explain the science of evolution by using emojis. As you can see, he used quite a few different emojis in very clever ways … but he never once uses the praying hands emoji because, science.
Basically, a rip-off of Mrs. Kanye West's game
If any of you download this app and actually play this game, I’m not saying that I’m going to judge you… but I’m not saying that I’m not going to judge you. Ohhh, Lindsay. Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay. Lindsay Lohan’s Price of Fame is an attempt to cash in on another game that made a gazillion dollars this year, Kim Kardashian Hollywood. I just watched the trailer or whatever you call these things for the game, and I can’t get over the star-shaped pasties. Like, I can’t. And now I’m forcing you to experience this too, so click inside for more!
This is hilarious… and now you know just what to get your Breaking Bad-obsessed friend for the holidays. Aaron Paul took to Twitter to share some exciting news about a project he’s been working on. And although I have not completed the Breaking Bad series (I KNOOooow, I’m a horrible person who basically doesn’t exist) I think this is awesome news, and I can definitely think of a few people who are probably downloading the Yo Bitch app right now.

Old Tech is the New Tech
For the past few months or so, hipsters have been seen carrying around and using old, pre-smartphone mobile phones as a way of distinguishing themselves as “cool” … or some such nonsense. Today we learn that pop star Rihanna has jumped aboard that bandwagon as she has been spotted out and about with a pink Motorola RAZR flip phone in her possession. Older cell phones like the Moto RAZR can still be used as long as they have a functional SIM card installed so you, too, can be “cool” with an old, outdated mobile phone as well!! More »

"Maybe we didn't just land once, we landed twice."
Yesterday we learned the amazing news that scientists from the European Space Agency were able to successfully land a probe on the surface of a comet that is currently speeding through space and today we get to see the very first photo that has even been taken on the surface of a comet. Shortly after the Philae Lander successfully landed on comet 67P, it transmitted back to earth photos from the comet’s surface … one of which you can see in full below. More »

'Deep Impact' and 'Armageddon' IRL (kinda)
For the first time in human history, scientists were able to successfully land a probe on a moving comet that is speeding through space … which in one sentence alone, is far more interesting than the 3-hour snoozefest that is Christopher Nolan‘s new movie Interstellar. Scientists from the European Space Agency were able to successfully land the Philae Lander on a comet named 67P … a feat never before achieved by mankind. The world waited with bated breath earlier this morning as the landing was attempted and then collectively rejoiced when the landing was successfully achieved. Today is a great day for science, despite the other moronic stuff making headlines today. More »

""God is not a divine being or a magician"
After Pope Francis publicly voiced his support of gay priests and he suggested that the Catholic Church focus on other more important issues than contraception, abortion and same-sex marriage, he went on to suggest that the Church soften its stance on divorcées as well as couples (gay or straight) who live together romantically out of wedlock. Today, we learn that Pope Francis as also publicly declared his belief in evolution and the big bang theory, saying that God is not a “magician with a magic wand”. In terms of the revolutionary things said by popes, Francis now has a very impressive record of voicing his extremely enlightened beliefs. More »

The Future is Now
Back in February of 2012, we first learned that Mattel was producing a line of prop hoverboards that look like the hoverboard that was featured in the 1989 film Back to the Future II (ahem, I may have one of those prop hoverboards in my closet right now) but today we learn that a company has actually created a fully functional hoverboard that they hope to put into full production. As it stands right now, the Hendo Hoverboard only hovers about an inch off the ground … but it does work. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to help raise funds for further development in the hopes that hoverboard technology can actually exist in real life like it does in fictional movies. Click below to see photos of this working hoverboard, learn a bit about the Kickstarter campaign and check out video of the damn thing in action. More »

Apple to the Streaming Music Service: Beat It
Back in January, a new music streaming service called Beats Music was launched by Dr. Dre, Trent Reznor and Jimmy Iovine. Shortly there after, the Beats Music launch was celebrated with massive party here in LA that did much to promote the new service to users. In May, Dr. Dre announced that his Beats company — including his line of headphones, speakers and the Beats Music streaming service — was sold to Apple for billions. Today we are hearing that Apple is planning to shut down Beats Music for good. The news hast not been confirmed officially by anybody but sources maintain that Beats Music is about to be dunzo. If you consider that Apple didn’t mention Beats Music at all when the announced the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus or the Apple Watch earlier this month, it does seem likely that they are no longer interested in keeping the service alive at all. Wow. More »

LOL No, really!
Despite the fact that comic Joan Rivers died a few weeks ago, she managed to update her official Facebook profile today to endorse the release of Apple‘s iPhone 6. It was looks to be a post that was scheduled to go live weeks ago, Joan fully endorses the release of the newest Apple iPhone … which you can read below. The post was taken down shortly after it went live but not before screenshots were saved and disseminated online. It would appear that Joan has gotten the last laugh after all. More »
