This guy could bring a bow to a gun fight and still win.
 
Man I love the internet.  This guy has insane archery skills.  Insane!!  (In the membrane!!)

He can split incoming arrows.  He can grab an arrow that is being shot at him out of the air and shoot it back at you in a split second.  He can grab the arrow that you shot at him out of the air and kill you with it!

One day you could buy a flat-packed piece of furniture from Ikea, take it home, wet it down with a garden hose and watch self-assemble.

“Think of the entire situation, before you judge.”

Words to live by.

SpaceX releases a vine showing their Falcon Stage 1 rocket attempting to land autonomously on a floating barge.  This sheds some light on the "and... actual pieces" from this tweet.

Still, it's the best attempt ever to land a rocket stage on a boat.  I bet they'll nail it in another attempt or two.

“Didn't get good landing/impact video. Pitch dark and foggy. Will piece it together from telemetry and ... actual pieces.”

If the barge being a drone didn't make sense before, it sure does now.

Please please please don't let this be a scam/hoax/fluke.

Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat — the device that purports to use cold fusion to generate massive amounts of cheap, green energy – has been verified by third-party researchers, according to a new 54-page report. The researchers observed a small E-Cat over 32 days, where it produced net energy of 1.5 megawatt-hours, or “far more than can be obtained from any known chemical sources in the small reactor volume.” The researchers were also allowed to analyze the fuel before and after the 32-day run, noting that the isotopes in the spent fuel could only have been obtained by “nuclear reactions” — a conclusion that boggles the researchers: “… It is of course very hard to comprehend how these fusion processes can take place in the fuel compound at low energies.”
"""

"""
Before the world can be changed, however, there will now be a very extensive period of scrutiny from the scientific community at large. The previous third-party analysis of the E-Cat device, published in March 2013, was attacked and debunked very rapidly. It seems this new report has been intentionally designed so that there are fewer plot holes and logical leaps.

In the iconic photo of the device under test, one can see the apparatus with the red-hot glowing wires visible through the translucent 3mm thick alumina casing.

This is a significant observation, because it's the principle source of evidence that the thin alumina shell is translucent and not 100% opaque.

Why does that matter? It matters because the IR camera equipment that is used to reckon the heat coming out of the device assumes that the alumina shell is an isothermal black body radiator operating at the emissivity of alumina at that temperature. But that conveniently simple energy budget model breaks down if the alumina casing is not 100% opaque. As can be seen in the photograph, some of the photons from the interior apparatus are being transmitted through the translucent shell, rather than being absorbed by it. When those directly transmitted photons impinge upon the IR camera, which is calibrated for the emissivity of alumina, the calculation model incorrectly assumes the alumina shell itself is glowing red hot in accordance with a black body radiation model. This results in a sizable systematic error in reckoning the heat being produced by the device.

Imagine looking at an ordinary household light fixture with a typical translucent shade around the bulb. The filament inside the bulb is at an incandescent temperature, but it also has a very small surface area. When you look at the light fixture with the translucent shade in place, you see those same photons, but now they appear to come from the large surface of the translucent shade. If you imagine the shade to be the originating source of those photons, in accordance with a black body radiation model, you (incorrectly) deduce that the shade itself is glowing at that same incandescent temperature. Since the shade has orders of magnitude more surface area than the filament inside the light bulb, you end up concluding (incorrectly) that an enormous amount of heat is being produced.

In short, the experimenters have to reckon the translucency of the 3mm alumina shell that encases the apparatus, and adopt a corresponding energy budget model. Since that's not practical, they need to encase the entire apparatus in a fully opaque isothermal shell, so as to be able to properly apply their isothermal black body radiation measurement technique to the system.

Danger — falling blocks? Yep, the classic 1980s video game "Tetris" is headed to the big screen as a live-action sci-fi film, Threshold Entertainment and the Tetris Co. have announced.
