Usually, when animal stories headline the news, it’s either a feel-good report or something relating to PETA.

“Freeze! You’re under arrest for… for… oh, wait.” Perhaps no act of aggression better sums up our times than SWAT-ing, the act of convincing teams of typically armed emergency services to swarm a home under false pretenses. With little more than a caller ID scrambler or encrypted virtual private network (VPN), cowards-turned-cyberbullies solicit tense, tenuous

Riches. Fame. Wealth. Power. These are the things that come with amassing copious amounts of money—money that not every average person can achieve in their lifetime.

Few things are more fascinating than an exciting conspiracy theory with some scientific basis. In our list, we will go through some extremely intense theories (Has the Earth been pulled into a black hole since 2012?!) and some that truly seem silly and good-natured. Put it this way; you will never look at bird feeders

The future is a fascinating place. Especially when looked at as a place our children, nieces, and nephews, and the rising generation gets to inhabit. A gateway into the future is found in the pages of bookshelves. Books talk of the future as a fantasy, a future populated with aliens and interstellar travel. Some even

No one, including futurists, has a crystal ball. Despite centuries of attempts to divine the future using everything from animal innards to tea leaves, little progress has been made, except, in some cases, by scientists (meteorology is one example of relative success). So the future remains, for the most part, relatively obscure. However, that fact

While that may sound lovely, you may want to think twice if you have the urge

Throughout history, societies have found many different ways to execute criminals, including beheading, hanging, a firing squad, an electric chair, a gas chamber, and lethal injection. Unfortunately, for all forms of executions, there will be some cases that don’t result in a timely death—some executions might not work at all, or some might take multiple

Everyone likes a good plot twist in a movie or a book, right? Remember finding out Bruce Willis was dead in The Sixth Sense? What about the real killer’s reveal in Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects? A plot twist makes people think about the situation, sometimes even years later. The psychology lies in the fact that

In 1877, Louisa May Alcott, beloved author of the classic novel Little Women, noted that she had just finished writing an entirely different kind of story—a dark and lurid romance that she planned to publish under a pseudonym. “It has been simmering since I read Faust last year,” she wrote. “Enjoyed doing it, being tired

People do strange things every day. We’ve all likely seen someone doing something that seems just a bit off. Maybe it’s noticing someone riding a bike wearing pajamas in the pouring rain or arguing with the loaves of bread on the shelf in the grocery store. Odd, yeah, but something we can just ignore as

Ah, the family sitcom. A little corny, a tad hokey, perhaps a bit idyllic. And mostly dead: Over the past few decades, consumer taste and an ever-broadening number of channels and streaming services have diversified and segmented TV premises. Great shows like The Sopranos and Breaking Bad have pilloried traditional family constructs, while terrible ones
