Astronomer Announces He Has Discovered ... Mars.... Wait, What?

Astronomer Peter Dunsby just made a groundbreaking discovery, after noticing a very bright "star" pop up in his field of view at an observatory at the University of Cape Town that was not present two weeks prior. Too bad Dunsby was perhaps thousands of years late … the bright object was the planet Mars. Though no one knows for sure who discovered the Red Planet, Galileo Galilei observed the giant red orb — whose diameter spans a whopping 4,222 miles (6,794 km) — in 1609; and Martian fascination has arguably not waned since. Before realizing his marvelous mistake, Dunsby posted...

A boy used an elevator as his bathroom, and the universe immediately punished him for his crimes

Video footage caught a Chinese boy having a wee all over the buttons on an elevator panel and getting hit with instant karma. In the video, clad in a green hoodie and jeans, he can be seen dropping his trousers and tinkling all along the many buttons.

Simon Laprise, a 33-year-old machinist and artist based out of Montreal, built a life-size model of a DeLorean DMC-12—the same car featured in the Back to the Future movies—using snow outside his home Monday. After Laprise used the piles of snow to create the life-sized DeLorean, he topped it off with a real windshield wiper he picked up across the street and placed it on the snow sculpture. He did this to give the illusion that the rest of the vehicle was buried in snow. The police came to investigate the “vehicle” because it appeared to be parked in a...

8 Times Flat-Earthers Tried to Challenge Science (and Failed) in 2017

In the stew of false information and conspiracy theories that swirls online, perhaps no idea is as flummoxing as the belief in a flat Earth. Flat-Earthers believe that the Earth is a flat disc ringed by an ice wall. All those elegant models of a round Earth that perfectly explain seasons, eclipses, sunrises and sunsets? Lies and cover-ups, they say. Pictures of the round Earth from space? Government conspiracies. The fact that you can see ships disappearing hull-first over the curve of the horizon with your own eyes? Well, flat-Earthers claim to see something different. It's been a big publicity...
