- What happens when you blow bubbles when it's minus 49 degrees?With winter starting to settle into the Northern Hemisphere, this video seems well-timed. In it, the most Canadian couple who I’ve ever seen take great delight in blowing soap bubbles into the cold crisp, minus 49 degree air. (WHY AREN’T THEY BOTH WEARING HATS AND GLOVES!?!?!)
- Don't drive your million-dollar speedboat up the face of a 40-foot waveWhen this owner of a Donzi 43 ZR found himself in the midst of a tall set of waves off the coast of California last year, he decided the wisest course of action was to gun his engines and point his bow towards the closest incoming wave.

- 9 animals with extremely long migrationsAnimals migrate for a lot of different reasons. Some travel long distances on a seasonal basis for food, finding their meal of choice hundreds and thousands of miles away. Others make their journeys to find mates while still others do it to avoid unfavorable weather, staying just ahead of the winter line as it creeps down from the poles every year. […]
- The future belongs to dronesAmazon just announced a project that aims to provide customers with drone delivery within 30 minutes of ordering on the website.

- Veggie-farming couple sues Miami Shores for the right to grow a garden againHermine Ricketts and Tom Carroll have been growing vegetables in their front-yard garden for the past 17 years. They estimate that around 80 percent of their food comes from the small plot in front of their Miami Shores home. Their home garden saved them money and provided them with lots of delicious, healthy food. It was a great example of hyper-local food […]
- 5 threats to the future of the oceans The world's oceans (which is really one giant ocean), are not doing well. The last 100 years have not been kind to the 71 percent of the Earth's surface covered by water. Human industry has dumped an ever-growing amount of trash and pollution into these waters while ripping out an equally growing amount of fish and sea life. We dirty its waters wit […]
- 6 important things that were invented during the Middle AgesEurope was a fairly grim place at the beginning of the Middle Ages.

Barbarian kings and warlords ruled the lands for many years.
- How to make your own rocket stove with a few cinder blocksA rocket stove is a super-efficient cooking and heating stove that can be built with a wide variety of materials from bricks to pipes to clay to packed dirt.

- 4 useful things created by warWar is hell. Nations can wreak enormous destruction over the landscape when they hurl their armies at one another.
