Google, a giant of a company built on the shoulders of the search engine at Google.com some how forgot to renew their Google.com domain name.  That's how Sanmay Ved, a former Google employee and current grad student came to own the domain at the price of $12. Of course he only owned it for about a minute before returning it to its previous owners. 



Google offered to reward Ved (pictured above) with $6006.13 (Get it? It spells Google!).  When they found out that he intended to give it all to charity they doubled the amount and sent it to Art of Living India where Ved was going to donate his reward. 

Step 1: Take the stuffing out of a human-sized teddy bear.
Step 2: Wear its skin.
Step 3: ????

You might be asking, "why did this happen?". Well, what else are you going to do with a giant, stuffed bear?

Drones are pretty cool but in the wrong hands they can do some pretty scary things, like spy on people or drop any number of harmful things on an unsuspecting public. Or this:



The point is, it's important to have a defense against drones. That's why the Dutch National Police force have started training eagles to take down drones and look awesome doing it. These birds of prey are the perfect weapon to take down a drone because of their super strong talons and the fact that they can fly.

The only problem so far is that the drone blades could still injure the eagles which means someday our future may include armored eagles.

The Mars Curiosity rover is no stranger to selfies. This is a composite of 57 images taken from the camera at the end of the rover's arm called the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI). It's on top of a sand dune called 'Namib Dune', taking samples of sand to study the composition of sand dunes on Mars and the way they behave in Mars' atmosphere. 

It even took a close up picture of the sand it's been scooping up.

As soon as Nick Offerman grew a mustache to appear on Parks and Recreation, he became America's 'Man's Man'. Now it seems like that honor applies to him in India too. His face has been spotted on a bathroom in Madurai, India as a representation of all men. 

Offerman's response was simple, yet elegant.

There's a mysterious bro on Instagram who's also an accomplished chef with over 100 thousand followers. He's known for over the top small plates of junk food and captions written in all caps.  The chef known as Jacques LaMerde has made a name for himself as an inside joke in the cooking world.

Until now the true identity of this chef has remained elusive, until it was revealed to be Christine Flynn, a Toronto chef.  She appeared as a guest on Top Chef. This reveal may put an end to Jacques LaMerde, but hopefully she's onto bigger, better, just as unhealthy things.

An earlier theory used to be that the moon hit the Earth on the side (as in the video below) but this stunning image is a reconstruction by scientists who say that it was a head-on collision that caused the impact. 

Edward Young, lead scientist of this study told UCLA Newsroom that they drew this conclusion from the fact that the Earth and the Moon are overwhelmingly made of the same materials. 

“Theia was thoroughly mixed into both the Earth and the moon, and evenly dispersed between them,” Young said. “This explains why we don’t see a different signature of Theia in the moon versus the Earth.”
