The Order Of Elijah is a deathcore band from Joplin, Missouri, who, up until about a week ago, was a Christian metal band. To the group's credit, though not in the same genre, metal has had fantastic Christian metal groups in the past (Extol comes to mind), so we'll leave the whole "can Jesus metal rule?" debate out of this. I'm sure you're also noticing that I keep referring to the band's belief in God in the past tense… which is accurate.

In 1899, when famous arctic explorer Robert Peary reached Ellesmere Island, in Canada, he found the ruins of a hut erected by a previous arctic expedition in the island’s northeastern shore. The hut was a three-room building built with long, wooden boards, and covered with tar paper, but such type of construction was notoriously difficult to keep warm during the freezing polar winters. Peary found the building utterly unfit for habitation, and so he had the building torn down and rebuilt several smaller quarters in its place. For the next thirty years, Peary’s huts—named Fort Conger—played an important role in several high arctic expeditions.
The original Fort Conger was built in 1881 by explorers of the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition led by Lt. Adolphus Greely of the Fifth United States Cavalry. The crew was dropped on the island by the ship Proteus on August 11, 1881, with ample food and fuel to survive and explore comfortably for a year or so.

To add to our Wednesday Wideo Woundup, an epic clip... just 3:44 of your time.
Remember the Line Rider video that was synced to "Hall of the Mountain King"? That took a lot of work, but now imagine how much work went into synchronizing a real-world marble run to classical music! The same YouTuber, DoodleChaos, used Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" to design this intricate marble run. It uses steel balls, magnets, dominoes, levers, gravity, and exquisite timing as it builds to a musical climax. Like the waltz, this chain reaction is a thing of beauty.
If you're unfamiliar with fractals, read up on how they are the result of mathematical equations. Yeah, there's math in them thar lines, gradients, and fills.

Sleep is universal in the animal kingdom, but each species slumbers in a different — and often mysterious — way. Some animals snooze with half their brain, while others only sleep for two hours a day (without even suffering sleep deprivation!). Ed Yong guides us through the latest research on how creatures catch their z’s.

Remember when it came to doing heavy lifting, the guy who always got the job done would tell you "It's all about leverage." Well, he was right, but it also helps to have some hydraulics as well.
Meet the Makinex Powered Hand Truck PHT-140, which allows a single person to safely lift up to 309 pounds.

Joachim Munter, a talented photographer who lives in Helsinki, Finland has captured the innate beauty and magical personalities of the various animals who populate the Finnish forest. In these photos, Munter’s connection with the animals is evident; birds perch on his hand, a fox smiles for the camera, a squirrel lies upon a tree limb without a worry in the world while a little field mouse shows off some ill-gotten bounty.
