Much of the UK's system of laws and 'unwritten constitution' derives from EU law, so with Brexit inexorably advancing, the UK has to pass a whole raft of parallel legislation that will replace the EU laws with UK versions, lest there be a 'legal black hole' the day after...

South Park's an easy target for anyone smarter than a cartoon frog, but sometimes not giving a shit is a good policy. The usual suspects are upset about this development and talking of boycotting the game, but I'm sure they'll find some comforting four-dimensional satire of...

On their website, Los Angeles-based Koi Division proclaims they are the 'only Fish Goth Joy Division parody cover band that matters.' I'm no expert, but I'm inclined to believe them. Each band member not only dons a plastic fish mask but has also been given an...

These fish flip flops (sandals? slippers? shoes?) are equally as quirky as that Big Mouth Billy Bass toy from years ago, but much quieter and for your feet. I approve (though feel a bit gill-ty for loving them so). Each pair will run you about $20, depending on the vendor....

The Juno probe is recording incredible image data of Jupiter. Not least are the new aurora studies that are shaking up what we know of the planet's extreme weather systems. But it's the sheer painterly beauty of the world, up-close, that is most breathtaking. And then...

I tried to count exactly how many spins this dancer, found on Reddit, completes but couldn't keep track – at one point she picks up so much speed she's just a blur. But I definitely counted over 100. The most incredible part, besides the fact that she spins so many times...

Ta-Nehisi Coates (previously) is in characteristically amazing form with his new essay in the Atlantic, 'The First White President,' in which he posits that Donald Trump is 'the first president whose entire political existence hinges on the fact of a black president' -- the...

Houdini would be jealous of Toscha Sponsler. The Texas woman was sought by police for allegedly shoplifting. They cuffed her and put her in the back of a police car, but Ms. Sponsler was not ready to stop having fun. While police were out of the car, she slipped out of the...

Emily Mueller and her husband have a business relocating bees from areas where they might be exterminated. So when she hired Kendrah Damis to snap some photos of her third trimester, Emily wanted to include 20,0000 of their closest friends in the pics. (more…)

Calling cards were popular among a number of 1970s subcultures, including street gangs (previously) and CB radio enthusiasts. When two operators met off the airwaves and in real life, they called it 'eyeballing.' William Hogan and David Titlow collected these fun cards for...

Haha! Here's a feisty girl who tells an InfoWars reporter that he's 'a fucking idiot' after he approaches her and asks, 'How are you young man.' He then gets all prim on us. 'Wow, who taught you that language?' 'My mother,' she responds. 'So your mother taught you that foul...

Wow! I want to see how this Halo Top ice cream story began and how it ends – more please! Here's a commercial that feels more like you're in the middle of a Terry Gilliam (Brazil Part 2) movie than an ice cream ad. According to Time magazine on August 3rd, 'Earlier this...

US infrastructure spending as a proportion of GDP is at a low not seen since WWII, and that's why America's bridges, dams, roads, power plants and other key infrastructure are such easy fodder for Hurricane Harvey (and the impending Irma devastation). Trump's plan for...
