Feast your eyes on 5,000 pine trees, planted in 1937, spelling Studebaker when viewed from high enough. Bendix Woods park was formerly the Studebaker proving grounds, and much of the track surface is still visible in satellite photos. But what stands out is the eerie grove of now-mature trees reminding aircraft and satellites of a car company gone for 45 years.

This project isn't really a game, I just wanted to offer people the opportunity to slam dunk on Donald J. Trump. I'm not a game dev at all, I hardly know what I'm doing, but much like Donald Trump, I didn't let ignorance or lack of technical competence get in the way of my dreams, which is to let people vicariously dunk on Donald J. Trump.
Scientists often hope to break ground with their research. But a group of Australian researchers would likely be happy with breaking wind. The team developed an ingestible electronic capsule to monitor gas levels in the human gut. When it’s paired with a pocket-sized receiver and a mobile phone app, the pill reports tail-wind conditions in real time as it passes from the stomach to the colon.

Unforgiving cold has punished the eastern third of the United States for the past 10 days, but the most severe winter weather yet will assault the area late this week. The storm's enormous circulation will help draw several lobes of the polar vortex, the zone of frigid air encircling the North Pole, over the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast by Friday and Saturday. Wicked cold air sourced from Siberia, the North Pole and Greenland will all converge on the region.
It may prompt sniggers from passing motorists - with some travelling for miles to have their photographs taken next it - but for the residents of one West Midlands road their street name is no laughing matter.
The strangest thing about warts is that they tend to go away. Fully grown, nothing in the body has so much the look of toughness and permanence as a wart, and yet, inexplicably and often very abruptly, they come to the end of their lives and vanish without a trace. And they can be made to go away by something that can only be called thinking, or something like thinking. This is a special property of warts which is absolutely astonishing, more of a surprise than cloning or recombinant DNA or endorphin or acupuncture or anything else currently attracting attention in the press. It is one of the great mystifications of science: warts can be ordered off the skin by hypnotic suggestion.

In the cold-war craze of the 50's, the government was faced with many survival decisions, including just what to feed all the huddled masses in their underground bunkers and shelters. After much study, they hit upon bulgur wheat, a key ingredient in middle-Eastern cuisine and an especially hardy and common grain. From that, 20 billion pounds of all-purpose survival crackers came into being.

You've probably heard the warning every year since you were a kid: Don't eat those little silver balls on your Christmas cookies, because they’re "poisonous." Those small round decorations are officially called silver dragées - dragée being the general term for a tiny confectionery coated in hard sugar - and they've been haunting the Food and Drug Administration for over a century.

The Los Angeles City Council was taking public commentary on a proposal to ban house parties in the Hollywood Hills recently. Local rager Chad Kroeger and his hetero lifemate JT Parr exercised their rights as citizens to do just that... and quite frankly, America is better for it.

While restoring an 18th century statue, Spanish historians found what appears to be a makeshift time capsule in an unlikely place - the buttocks of a statue. Two handwritten letters, yellow with age, were inside. They're dated from 1777 and signed by Joaquín Mínguez, a chaplain from the Burgo de Osma cathedral.
The Lost City of DeMille finds its origin in 1923, when the director ordered the spectacle set including detailed gates, pharaohs and pyramids to be built for The Ten Commandments. According to local legend, the director had the set buried because it was too valuable for thieves and too expensive.
Here's the good news: China has launched the first all-electric cargo ship. According to China Daily, the 230 foot long vessel is equipped with a 2,400 kWh lithium-ion battery that stores enough electrical energy to transport 2200 tons of cargo a distance of 50 miles on a single charge at a top speed of about 8 miles per hour. Time to recharge the battery is given as 2 hours, which is approximately the time needed to unload the ship at its destination.
Then there's the bad news.
