Remember all the toddler poo and snot and barf that was caked in the ball pit at Chuck E. Cheese’s when you were a kid?
LeBron James and the Miami Heat received their 2013 championship rings last night before their season opener against the Chicago Bulls. The ring is flooded with 242 diamonds, 3 Onyx stones and weighs around 135 grams. “Back to Back” is inscribed on one side of the ring while the other side pays homage to the Heat’s two previous championships. Lastly, the phrase “Franchise Best 66-16 Record 27-Game Winning Streak” is printed on the inside of the ring. If the Heat keep playing like they did last night they may be adding another one of these rings to their collection very soon.
The Federal Reserve officially began distributing the new $100 dollar bill this week. The redesigned c-note incorporates several new anti-counterfeiting features including a 3D security ribbon, color-changing bell in an inkwell, and the number “100″ on the back changes from copper to green. Check out the video below to get a full run-down of all the new security features.
2 days ago Jimmy Kimmel aired a spoof of Kanye’s interview with BBC. Jimmy basically had a little kid repeat word-for-word what Kanye said in the interview which infuriated the rapper. Kanye took to Twitter to voice his dislike for the comedian and Jimmy responded to Kanye’s tweets on his show. The whole ordeal is pretty entertaining. Take a look at the whole down below.
If you think you’ve already seen this, you’d be wrong — because this image compilation never existed before. NASA sent some spacecraft into orbit around the moon and captured these amazing photographs that have since been compiled to show a full rotation of the moon in HD.
Elon Musk is a well-known entrepreneur responsible for bringing us Paypal, SpaceX and Tesla Motors. But his latest venture may be his best (and craziest) yet. The HyperLoop is a high speed transportation system consisting of steel tubes and aluminum pods. Using some sort of crazy new technology that I don’t understand, the HyperLoop is capable of traveling at speeds of up to 800MPH and transporting passengers to destinations 900 miles away in only a half an hour. With speeds that fast, safety is an issue that immediately comes to mind. Musk intends to ensure safety by regulating how many pods can be traveling in the tubes at one time. The HyperLoop would space all pods 5 miles apart in order to give the pods enough time to break in case of emergency and avoid collisions. The $6 Billion dollar program is still a long ways away from becoming a reality, but if anyone can make it happen it’s Elon Musk. He is currently working on an updated design and is planning on creating a fully functional prototype in the near future.
