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

The world is now safer and better than ever and here's the evidence — These series of statistical graphics show that, while there's still plenty of war, hunger, sickness, and poverty in the world, things are much better than what they were only a few decades ago-not to talk about centuries ago. We are still far from utopia, but the data is stubborn: We are getting there.

Dance dance dance to the electronica hipsterfest of Bugatti [NSFW] — Five dry martinis and Tiga's Bugatti track on repeat. That's all I need to work and play today. [NSFW for bare breasts and absurd 1980s hipsterfest overload full of old Macintosh computer, phones, arcades, and people in funny clothing.] Also, I'm not sure if he says Bugatti or bukkake, but that may just be my bad English.

Amazing new image of the Earth and the Moon taken outside lunar orbit — China's National Space Agency has released this stunning image of the Earth and the Moon from an extraordinary vantage point. Taken yesterday by their Chang'e 5 spacecraft on, the photo shows the far side of the moon with the Earth on the background.

Pope Francis says evolution and the Big Bang are real — The Head of the Catholic Church has spoken: The Big Bang and Evolution are real-God was not "a magician, complete with a magic wand that can do all things," Pope Francis said at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences yesterday. He was surprisingly clear where his immediate predecessors were muddier.

Lost In The Train Station short animation should be turned into a game — I imagine some kind of Monkey Island-style adventure game-but side-scrolling, set in huge train/subway stations that would take you through shops and weird fantastic places, with some platformer elements thrown in for extra fun. The stations, from all over the world would be connected through the trains.

Crazy people put car inside giant inflatable ball, roll it down a hill — This is fun and I don't care it was made by the car manufacturer. I care that someone was crazy enough to think about putting a freaking car inside one of those giant inflatable balls-called Zorbs, apparently, perhaps the biggest ever made-and then pushed it down a hill.

Here are the instructions: Free pizza. Yummy. Along with free beer, life really doesn't get any better than free pizza.... Read moreRead on * Print out the bingo card.

Video: The tallest apartment building in America sways 4 to 5 feet — Living in the tallest apartment building in America-and the northern hemisphere-will feel like living inside the Lincoln Memorial but with bathtubs, awesome views, and a permanent sensation of wanting to vomit: The ultra-thin skyscraper sways four to five feet, as this video filmed from the top shows.

I just can't believe that nothing in this video is real — Despite being four years old, this 60-second spot for a brand of kitchen countertops is still some of the best, most realistic 3D I've ever seen. It's not only the perfect produce falling in slow motion-it's everything. The ink drops, the bits of quartz, the stones, the gas, the vitroceramic.

Watch this cool sci-fi short film starring Game of Thrones' Littlefinger — Bad news: Ambition wasn't a movie as I wished for (it should be!) It's a short film directed by Oscar-winning Tomek Bagiński and starring Aidan Gillen-Littlefinger of Game of Thrones-about the importance of the Rosetta mission, the first that will make contact with a comet. Good news: It's cool and you can watch it here.
