Jam. Sploid. Tortilla de patata. Lego. Paella. Cigalas plancha. Rape con cuatro vuelcos. Suecas. More jam perhaps. I ate half a cronut once.

This may be the coolest, most futuristic bomber ever built — While the Saab 35 Draken may be the coolest, most futuristic combat jet ever made, when it comes to bombers that title goes to the XB-70 Valkyrie, a gigantic supersonic strategic nuclear bomber that never entered service. Seriously, when I say gigantic I really mean it. This thing is unbelievable-check the image below.

Scientists say these mysterious shrimps may hold keys to alien life — According to exobiologists at NASA these mysterious shrimps and its symbiotic bacterium may hold clues "about what life could be like on other planetary bodies." It's life that may be fundamentally similar to what could be lurking in the oceans of Europa, deep under the icy crust of the Jupiter moon.

Mt. Asgard looks like the actual home of the Viking gods — Artur Stanisz takes perfect photos of landscapes. So perfect, in fact, that sometimes they seem unreal. Like this image of Mount Asgard, a strange double-peak on the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. It feels like the actual home of the Nordic Gods. The rest of his photos are even more stunning.

A beautiful photo of the cockpit of the Lockheed MC-130 — Combat jet airplanes may be way more sleeker and cooler than cargo planes, but there is something magnificent about slowly flying in one of these beast, looking at the landscape in calm morning through the huge windows of the cockpit.

These things look surprisingly weird and awesome when cut in half — I don't know about you, but I love to see things cut in half. Sometimes they are boring, but most of the times they are incredible, like the mechanical calculator shown above. It's hard to believe this metal mess works. Here's more stuff that looks awesome stuff when cut in half.

Unbelievable video of a truck jumping over a Formula 1 in motion — Holy mother of God, this has to be one of the craziest vehicle stunts I've ever seen: The Formula 1 team Lotus got one of their giant trailer trucks to jump over one of their race cars running at full speed. It is absolutely insane.

How a lock works explained in one perfect cutaway video — I'm a big fan of cutaway things, specially if they are real like this lock. It's fascinating to see how machines and mechanisms work, with the little pins and springs moving to fit the shape of the key, leaving the barrel free to move when everything clicks.

This is the stuff that some of my nightmares are made of — I have some kind of innate deep fear/repulsion against birds and especially flocks. Watching this massive group of little winged velociraptors taking off some kind of poplar tree-there are so many that the tree is deformed by their weight-is my idea of hell.

This may be the coolest, most futuristic combat jet ever built — The Swedes make some amazing flying machines, like the Saab 35 Draken photographed above by Tony Osborne, London Bureau Chief for Aviation Week. It's so striking it doesn't even seem real. It feels more like a space fighter than a plane from Earth. Check out this gallery.

Drone video shows the snow wall storm from the inside — We have seen lots of impressive images and time-lapse video of the snow wall that buried entire cities in upstate New York but this is the first drone video filmed behind it, taken in West Seneca by Jim Grimaldi. A new lake effect, powered by arctic winds from the north pole and Siberia, is now hitting the area again.
