Landslides On Mars Might Not Be Sign Of Life After All

When scientists found what looked like a landslide on Mars, they thought they stumbled upon evidence that water, and therefore life, might have existed on Mars in the past. However, recent studies show that this probably isn't the case. It looks like we're not any closer to extraterrestrial life yet (but there's still hope).

Sometimes, a video comes along that perfectly encapsulates the culture. At one point, it was “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Then came “The Sneezing Baby Panda” and, of course, “Drummer at the Wrong Gig.” 

Now, in 2017, is the time of the “White Bear Mitsubishi’s Gopher Hockey Outtakes — White Bear on Ice.”

This video delivers. You want to see a bear mascot slipping on ice over and over? Well, you got it. The description asks “How many takes to have a White Bear not slip on the ice during a commercial shoot?” But the real question is how many times can we ask. The answer: As many as it takes.

Enjoy this video, bookmark this video, and watch it whenever you’re feeling a little blue.

This is your failsafe.

Wisconsin started an initiative to dump cheese brine (a waste product of the state's best known commodity) all over the frozen roads in the hopes that it would be effective in thawing the ice.

According to our friends at Circa, nearly 30% of the conventionally used dry salt is reportedly knocked off the roads by cars or simply bounces off when it's first dropped. The cheese brine helps the salt remain on the roads when applied. "You want to use provolone or mozzarella. Those have the best salt content. You have to do practically nothing to it," says Jeffrey Tews of the Milwaukee Public Works Department.

Wisconsin has always been known for its tasty dairy products, but now it can brag that even its streets are practically paved with cheese!
