Walmart takes on Amazon’s Prime Day with big bargains and free shipping

Amazon is about to unleash its Black Friday in July sales event for the second year in a row after last year’s sale generated even more revenue than Amazon’s actual Black Friday sale. Competitors are scrambling to compete with the retailer, of course, with Walmart preparing a special shopping event of its own. More →

Ghostbusters Proton Pack

Hero Dad builds incredible Ghostbusters Proton Pack replica for his son

The new Ghostbusters movie is set to premiere one week from today and it will be incredibly interesting to see how the film holds up at the box office. Somewhat surprisingly, the family friendly reboot has stirred up no shortage of controversy in recent weeks. Not only have some die-hard fans of the original criticized the upcoming film for its casting choices (read: some people aren’t on board with an all-female cast), others have lambasted the film’s trailer for being uninspiring and dreadfully unfunny.

You would think with so much craziness happening in the world these days that people would learn to chill a bit when it comes to something as unimportant as a Hollywood movie, but alas, here we are.

Inmates broke out of a cell to save the life of a dying prison guard

Officers were probably preparing for the worst when hearing an increasing amount of noise coming from one of the floors of the Parker County jail on June 23rd. And at first it appeared as though their worst nightmares were coming true — camera footage showed inmates breaking out of a cell, with a security guard lying unconscious on the floor. Of course, things aren’t always as they appear. More →

Tesla Autopilot Crash

A compilation of very stupid people doing very stupid things with Tesla Autopilot engaged

A compilation of very stupid people doing very stupid things with Tesla Autopilot engaged

Newsflash: People are idiots.

Tesla’s Autopilot software is an early example of technology that will soon be widely available in the United States and elsewhere. And despite a recent widely publicized fatal crash involving a man who was allegedly watching a movie when his Model S struck a tractor-trailer at speeds approaching 90MPH, autonomous driving technology has already been shown to be far safer than human drivers, even in its infancy. Prior to that crash, Teslas around the world had logged more than 130 million miles without a fatal accident.

But as we mentioned, this technology is still in its infancy and drivers should always keep their attention on the road, even while Autopilot is engaged. It’s common sense, but as the video below reminds us, not everyone has common sense. More →

Paris Biking REVe Highway

The newest superhighway in Paris won’t hold a single car

Biking can be an incredibly fun and healthy way to get around, unless the crowded city you live in isn’t really conducive to bicycles. That’s currently the case in Paris, but the crowded city is fixing its biking problem. Specifically, local authorities have committed to creating some 28 miles of bike-only roads and Paris has just inaugurated the first stretch of its cycling super highway. More →

The best way to watch Trump and Clinton whine and fight on Twitter

There is absolutely no question that the 2016 campaign trail leading up to November’s election has been and will continue to be one of the most bizarre ordeals in history. Things have been unconventional at best and completely absurd at worst, and the battle has only gotten more sad and strange now that the field has been narrowed down.

Looking for the best possible view to watch along as the democratic system circles the drain? There’s an app for that. More →

Video: Mid-air hang gliding accident will have you on the edge of your seat

As far as heart-pounding and harrowing video is concerned, the footage below of a hang gliding mishap at an extreme sports event in Norway may take the cake.

In late June, world championship hang glider Jon Gjerde was performing a few tricks for a crowd of on-lookers when his hang glider spontaneously broke mid-air. Amidst a number of “ohhhs” from the crowd, Gjerde — still attached to the hang glider — began to violently twist and turn as he steadily began falling back down to land.

Uber drivers share the wildest secrets they’ve overheard in their cars

It’s been about a decade since HBO aired the last episode of a show called Taxicab Confessions, in which passengers would share their deepest, darkest secrets with cab drivers. Although the show is gone, its spirit lives on in a recent Reddit thread, where Uber drivers were asked to recount the secrets they’d overheard while picking up and dropping off passengers.

How to get free stuff from your favorite stores every month of the year

Everybody loves free stuff, but free stuff is hard to come by. Most retailers and suppliers actually want you to pay for their goods and services, believe it or not, but every once in a while, a promotion will come along with free stuff in store.

Earlier this month, Money went to the trouble of making a list of all the days throughout the year that you are guaranteed to get free things from your favorite stores, and it’s quite a sight to behold.

Best Carry On Luggage 2016

I traveled with a smart carry-on and I’m never using a ‘dumb’ bag again

I traveled with a smart carry-on and I’m never using a ‘dumb’ bag again

By on July 1, 2016 at 1:31 PM.

Nearly three hours had passed before the realization finally hit me: I left my carry-on in the trunk of the taxi that drove me home from the airport. My laptop, my clothes and everything else I had stuffed into my little Tumi suitcase were no longer in my possession and I had no idea if my belongings would ever be returned to me. I can’t even imagine the look of panic that must have washed over my face.

Thankfully, I got lucky that time. I was the driver’s last fare of the evening and the cab company found my bag in the trunk of his car. But not everyone is so lucky. Baggage loss and theft have always been huge problems in airports, hotels and elsewhere. But as it turns out, there is a solution — and it’s sleeker and more stylish than you might imagine. More →

How to make Burger King’s outrageous Mac n’ Cheetos at home

Earlier this week, we reviewed an incredible new food innovation from Burger King: Mac n’ Cheetos. Okay, it may not be something worthy of being called an innovation, but we can’t deny that globs of deep-fried mac and cheese buried within a Cheeto is a surprisingly tasty treat.

If you, like me, are intent on devouring this quintessential American treat, you might want to try to hit up a local Burger King before the promotion ends. Now I know what you may be thinking: what if I don’t live near a Burger King?

Not to fear, we’ve got you covered.

Recently, we stumbled across a video which gives us the low down on how to make Mac n’ Cheetos right in your very own kitchen. And surprisingly enough, the solution is incredibly simple, if not a bit odd.
