So it turns out that insects--specifically Sensei Mantis--might be useful for better understanding 3D vision. Dr. Jenny Read of Newcastle University, a professor of vision science, confirms:

"Despite their minute brains, mantises are sophisticated visual hunters which can capture prey with terrifying efficiency. We can learn a lot by studying how they perceive the world," she said. "Better understanding of their simpler processing systems helps us understand how 3D vision evolved, and could lead to possible new algorithms for 3D depth perception in computers."

Short and skinny of it--that's awesome.

That was kind of chill as well.

This is what heaven looks like, or at least what a hand-pressed Wagyu beef, nutella smoked bacon, and double jack cheese between a fresh motherfu*king grilled doughnut shows up as.

And take note, it's called the "Doughnutfukwitdis".

New year, healthier you right?

This might be the best Star Wars related hit to pop up on the internet subsequent to the movie's recent debut. Beautiful things happened when the parody accounts for 'Emo Kylo Ren' and 'Very Lonely Luke' collided to exchange blows.

Sparky doesn't give a f*ck about you and your lightning bolts Zeus.

Everything about this is epic. This outrageously lucky bison from Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa survived being struck by lightning in 2013.

At this point we're unclear whether or not Sparky's spar with the afterlife bestowed him any supernatural gifts, but seriously, stay tuned.

If this isn't the pinnacle of modern day science then we're not sure what is. In an act of fearlessness Reddit User, Titantool, opened the floor to any and all questions that internet users might have about life with a penis implant.

He was involved in a near-fatal accident five years ago, in which he sustained many broken bones, and also a back injury that caused partial paralysis. He can now walk a little, but still has partial paralysis, which includes bowel, bladder, and sexual function.

Thanks to modern medical innovation and a very talented surgeon, he can now inflate a full erection.

The penis implant looks like this:

The images shared are NSFW, you can check 'em out here:

One of the more colorful questions asked was whether the testicle that's a plastic ball, feels like a plastic ball?

He answered:

She says it feels weird. I agree. It took me quite a while to get over that feeling of a third ball in my scrotum. It's avery unique feeling to it. It has texture so you can hang on to it better when inflating.

'It's firm but squishy though and not hollow feeling. It only feels hard when the tubes are full of saline and you can't squeeze anymore in there.

Of course some folks had to know whether he gained, or rather lost any length in the process. He answered candidly as usual, writing that he lost a little length and now measures in at five inches.
