    It Boggles The Mind: Optical Illusions

    An optical illusion by Akiyoshi Kitaoka. The spirals of magenta, green, orange and blue swirl in perfect unanimity. But at the behest of your cranial noodles, the green and blue are really one colour. Incredible! Load the image up in photoshop or even the paint...

    Making The Wii Less Safe

    The Nintendo Wii games are notoriously known for their ability to hurt people and expensive in-house items. Gaming add-ons such as peripherals only emphasize this. First off: bowling is not a sport, and those caught playing it should be punished. Playing the Wii kinda makes...

    NASA To Fire Large Missile At Moon

    There are questions surrounding our neighboring satellite. Mainly, is there water on it? Scientists have wet their pants trying to figure it out. And since there are no nibbles, a missile is being aimed at the moon with the purpose of creating a six mile...

    Area 51 Declassified, Much Remains The Same

    The cumulous shroud surrounding “that military facility” has finally dissipated. Area 51 now officially exists — which in the first place sounds silly. After all, how could the government feds ever explain that huge fenced-off tract of land at coordinates (37°14′06″N115°48′40″W) But let’s move on. For the first time in...
