It appears that mighty Thor has gone on a dramatic weight loss program that he has nicknamed "Lost at Sea" in an Instagram post revealing his new look. 

For his new role in a movie about the real-life whaling ship Essex that was attacked by a whale in 1820, inspiring the book Moby Dick. He had to go on an extreme diet, along with the rest of the cast, to look like a shipwrecked first mate. 

Watch him get attacked by a whale in the trailer here:

Sometimes a cat needs to chill harder than it normally chills.

Sleeping all day and running around all night is a tiresome job that takes its toll on a cat. Luckily, there is a company that understands the struggle. Enter Meowijuana, "a Purrveyor of High Grade Organic Catnip developed exclusively for your little friend."

Ok, so there is no actual marijuana found in this premium catnip, even though their tagline is "For Cats Who Need the Weed." Just take look at these products...

You can even get your cat a purrsonalized ID to make things super legit.

What do you think, man?

Scientists believe that comets are the leftovers of the beginning of our solar system. They look at comets to see if they can find any clues to how it was made. This comet, named Lovejoy, is unique because it is carrying ethyl alcohol (the kind you can drink), a simple sugar and 19 other organic types of molecules.

There's enough alcohol on that comet to fuel a giant party but scientists are excited for another reason. This comet seems to support a theory that some of the molecules on earth came from comets crashing on the surface. Scientists are hoping to find a comet with the same kind of organic molecules that allowed life to start on Earth.

Following the announcement of Obama's victory last night, one of his most outspoken critics Donald Trump had an epic public breakdown on Twitter, laying down all the cliches in the amateur's guide to internet punditry (paraphrased):

  • Ugh, Electoral College sucks.
  • Democracy is dead to me.
  • Guys, let's start a revolution.
  • This country sucks now.

In a conspicuous attempt to divert the attention, Trump subsequently removed some of his tweets and even made room for a self-promo hashtag (#TrumpCares) to boast about sending relief supplies to Hurricane-damaged areas in New York, but Salon has published screen captures of the highlights for your enragement (shown left).

According to Redditor mard86:

My co-worker sent an email saying he would be late because he was trying to untie a squirrel tail knot. I asked for a picture, and he delivered.

Here's the email from said coworker:

I was pressed into squirrel rescue this morning on my way out. 5 young squirrels got tangled in Christmas lights in my neighbor's yard. We got the lights off, but now their tails are one big knot, so I have to bring them into a rescue place to untie them, as I am unequipped to untie squirrel tail knots. I should be in this afternoon.

Cpl. Todd Love was left with just one limb after an explosion in Afghanistan in 2010.

But the 22-year-old wasn't about to let a few amputations stop him from competing this past weekend in the Beast, a brutal race that covers 10.5 miles of muddy, rugged terrain. Though Love's seven teammates helped him a bit along the course, he managed most of the more than 75 obstacles along the way on his own.

Love's goal was "…to push [myself] in all things physical, proving that overcoming obstacles isn't just something you attempt, it's something that you embrace."

Wow. Catch his whole story here.

The Curiosity Rover made it to Mars late Sunday night, and so far all we've got is this single high-res photo.

But it was more than enough to send NASA engineers into ecstasy, since the Curiosity's landing sequence -- coined The Seven Minutes of Terror -- requires six vehicle configurations, 76 pyrotechnic devices, the largest supersonic parachute ever built, and more than 500,000 lines of code.

According to NASA administrator Charles Bolden, "new technologies never invented or attempted before were created for this journey," and that the odds for success were actually just 40 percent.

Curiosity, the most sophisticated Rover ever built is now on the surface of the red planet, where it will seek to answer age-old questions about whether or not life ever existed there on Mars or if the planet can sustain life in the future.

More photos to come, we can be sure of that.
