The Secret Service doesn’t let people under its protection drive very often. When they do, it’s normally a golf cart they’re behind the wheel of. So after years of driving imprisonment, it’s no surprise that Joe Biden pulled a spectacular burnout the second he got behind the wheel of his Corvette.
Hillary Clinton tipped the scales in her favor with a solid performance at the first debate. Donald Trump hoped to stop the bleeding in the second debate, but two days before he took the stage, the now-infamous tape leaked.
Now, with Trump losing ground in even the reddest of states, the third and final debate might be his last chance to stabilize his campaign and begin to claw back into the race. Read on to find out how you can tune in live.

If you’re anything like me, your Halloween costume “plans” probably involve a last-minute run through your closet and wondering if you really need colored contacts to be that guy from Twilight. But this year, you can be much simpler: Get a couple faintly phone-sized boxes, some fake smoke, and prepare to scare all your friends and the local fire department.
When the BBC documentary series Planet Earth was first released in 2006, its impact was immediate and far-reaching. In addition to providing us with an unprecedented and vivid look at animal behavior across all the major continents, it was also one of the first programs that helped jump-start HDTV sales.
Now, 10 years later, the second installment of Planet Earth II is just around the corner. Slated to air later this year (a premiere date is still unknown), Planet Earth II promises to be even more jaw-dropping than the original. Filmed in stunning 4K, the documentary series will feature the narration of David Attenborough.
Million of years in the past, a comet or an asteroid might have slammed into the Earth at an important time in its climatic history, scientists report in a new study.
The extraterrestrial impact that scientists report evidence of occurred about 56 million years ago, approximately 10 million years after the well-known blast from space that killed off all the non-avian dinosaurs. The scientists behind the new discovery based it on clues that they found serendipitously in core samples:microtektites, which are spherical or teardrop-shaped objects that indicate an impact.
It doesn’t get much more terrifying than this. In a video that has quickly gone viral in less than 24 hours, we see a great white shark near Guadalupe Island ram into a dive cage, break the metal latch and actually get into the cage with a diver.
As far as nightmare scenarios are concerned, this one may very well take the cake.
If you’re looking to travel either domestically or internationally over the next few months, you may soon be able to take advantage of cheaper fares across the board. Thanks to increased competition from low-fare airlines, a number of the bigger airlines may soon be forced to cut fares as well.
Professional biker-man Danny MacAskill does tricks that I’m pretty sure defy the laws of physics, or at least the laws of good common sense. He sometimes does these tricks on top of an actual mountain.
Good thing he’s the one riding the bike and not you or me, in other words.
If you listen to the the digital prophets, the future is all about wearable computers and smart clothing and, uh, internet-connected kettles. That might be true by the time the robots have taken over, but right now, most 3-D printed dresses or wearable technology is part marketing start, part terrible abomination that should never have left a lab.
In case you can’t tell, I’m a little skeptical about anything that claims to be smart clothing. But after playing with a technology-wielding cycling jacket from startup Lumo, I don’t really want to wear dumb clothing any more.
The same technology that produces bouncy castles is reportedly a part of Russian military strategy.
MIG-31 fighter jets, T-80 tanks and even a S-300 missile system are all available for sale from a company called Rusbal— and all of them are as solid as a hot air balloon and as deadly as a bouncy castle from a child’s birthday party. The inflatable decoys, which look real from the air, are part of a Russian military strategy that includes deceit and confusion, The New York Times reports.
Bloomberg has an in-depth feature looking at the world of Uber as it grows into Latin America. It’s an interesting look at what it takes to grow a US company into a very different market, albeit a look based entirely on the testimony of Uber mangers.
But apart from the business interest, it also features one very scary photograph: Uber drones holding placards over a highway in Mexico City as an advert for the multi-billion-dollar ridesharing future. Welcome to your future, techies.
Computerized modeling of Mars’ moon Phobos has a connection with keeping the Earth safe from asteroids, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) announced on Wednesday.
Phobos has a huge crater, more than five miles across, and a new computer model out of the LLNL in California simulates the dramatic impact that could have caused that distinctive crater. The research is part of a planetary defence program at LLNL— in other words, studying how to protect Earth from a devastating impact.
Virtually every smartphone maker has been accused of copying Apple’s design at some point or another, but now you can make a bizarre addition to the list of Jobs imitators: the Clinton campaign.
In emails published by WikiLeaks and spotted by Business Insider, a marketing executive for the campaign in 2015 described the thought process behind the Clinton logo, drawing heavily from Apple’s previous work.
