Nine of the most terrifying attempts to improve popular foods.Nine of the most terrifying attempts to improve popular foods.

Covers everything from spray-able pancake batter and carbonated yogurt all the way over to colored ketchup and edible plates (Ritz crackers are a quick substitute for this as well - thank you Mitch Hedberg). So, who's hungry?

Seriously, you'd think that most of these headlines would have come right out of The Onion - but no, sadly these are all real headlines. My personal favorite: 'Report on reports sees too many reports'. That's some good reporting.

Six transportation ideas that are actually more baffling than the Segway.Six transportation ideas that are actually more baffling than the Segway.

Five gaping plot holes that Hollywood hopes you'll never notice.Five gaping plot holes that Hollywood hopes you'll never notice.

The same T-Rex sneaking up and saving our heroes from the raptors like he's Mr. Miyagi. We don't know the T-Rex is there until it's snapping raptors in half, and by then everything's way too awesome to wonder where all the goddamn earth quaking disappeared to.

Researchers say metamaterials could eventually be used to divert matter the same way the invisibility cloak redirects light waves (feel free to read researcher Shuang Zhang's paper on the matter). At that point pretty much anybody who wears it is a wizard.
