Stephen Hawking answers question on One Direction

On Saturday night, the physicist Professor Stephen Hawking discussed the universe, motor neurone disease and the future of the planet – and former One Direction member Zayn Malik. Hawking was taking questions at an event at the Sydney Opera House, where he was beamed in as a hologram from his home in Cambridge, when he received a query that was rather more left-field than usual. Buzzfeed Australia reports a guest asking: “What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?”
“Finally, a question about something important,” Hawking replied, to a wave of laughter.

Best Astronaut Portrait Ever

Leland Devon Melvin posed for his official NASA portrait with his dogs Jake and Scout!
 You can see they were excited about it.  Melvin was an NFL player until injuries ended his career, then an astronaut, flying on two shuttle missions to the ISS, until hearing failure grounded him.
Melvin still works with NASA, and with several organizations to promote STEM education.
Besides all that, he’s a photographer, snowboarder, and dog lover.

 With up to 20 living species, penguins are among the most amazing creatures alive.
They are birds that cannot fly, but they can swim better than many ocean animals.
They live in the freezing depths of Antarctica and the relative warmth of the Galapagos Islands.
And they have this incredible ability to make us think they are cute.
 So to celebrate World Penguin Day, here are 15 wonderful photos of penguins.

Everything ever recorded of Bill Hicks—EVER—to be released in 2015

The premature death of Bill Hicks was one of the greatest tragedies to ever befall American comedy. His hilarious and unabashedly angry attacks on conservatism, complacency, and stupidity made him a cult figure in his lifetime, but cancer claimed him in early 1994, just as he was poised to achieve real fame, so we never got to see him continue maturing into the gifted comedic truth-seeker he seemed bound to become, a legitimate heir to Lenny Bruce and George Carlin. Like any tortured genius type worth discussing, Hicks was full of contradictions—he criticized the alcohol industry for peddling poison, but he took a perverse and boastful pride in his own cigarette consumption. He embraced a deeply moral we-are-all-as-one-in-the-cosmos philosophy, yet he sometimes took a sadistic glee in dehumanizing the rural underclass (as a conservative-raised southerner himself, he gets a pass on that). And though he constantly torpedoed commercial opportunists, he himself was seeking career visibility, and paradoxically, purity, in a milieu that necessitated rather a lot of commercial engagement.
 His career wasn’t helped, either, by his willingness to derail a performance to attack his audience, or even just a single member thereof, though that shit was every bit as golden as his prepared material.

Paint Chips by Shawn Huckins

Although you may think that the artist paints directly on tiny paint cards used as color samples at hardware stores, but they aren’t actually small at all. In fact, these are not real paint cards, they are fairly large paintings that, thanks to Huckins’ finely crafted skill, are made to replicate exactly the different hues and segments of a paint card.

Sexy, Simple, Satirical



As the weather warms up, you might find yourself staring out an office window, daydreaming about what you'd rather be doing: lazing outdoors, perhaps, on a large blanket with a picnic bounty spread before you. In fact, people have been fantasizing about picnics as a return to a simpler life pretty much since the dawn of urban living, says Walter Levy, author of The Picnic: A History.
