Let's harken back to a time when golf pants fit uncomfortably snug and white guys peer pressured each other to keep up appearances by driving the 'right car,' which in this sales training video is some model (any model) of the 1989 Chevy Celebrity. 'It looks like a...

Jeroen Boeye is a data scientist who was parsing the power output of his panels, and noticed that they were influenced -- as you'd expect -- by the trees near his house, which got in the way of direct sunlight. That made him wonder: Could you use the solar panels' output as...

A recent contestant on Jeopardy! got dinged for pronouncing 'gangsta' incorrectly, which prompted this bit on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It imagines Coolio hosting a Golf Channel TV show called Pronunciation Station that teaches 'Anglo-Saxons' how to say popular hip-hop words,...

Reminiscent of last year's viral video of a BBC interview with a professor whose toddler crashed the scene, here's another child happy to get on camera with Daddy. This time it's Al Jazeera doing a Skype interview about the Golden Globe Awards with a Berkeley film historian, ...

Martin from Antique Typewriters writes, 'The Alexis typewriter is the result of a small town inventor with the desire to design and manufacture his own typewriter. James A. Wallace (1845 - 1906) was born in Alexis, Illinois (pop. 900) where he is now buried. He was a dynamic ...

The #MeToo movement seems to have made some actors a bit jumpy. At least in the case of Michael Douglas, who is defending himself against sexual misconduct accusations that haven't yet been publicly made. No, he never masturbated in front of an employee who used to work for...

I have often thought that you can divide up the risks of the big internet platforms by plotting a 2X2 grid; on one axis is 'wants to spy on everything you do' and on the other is 'wants to control everything you do' -- Apple scores low on the first axis (they don't much want ...
