  1. New Study Says Cancer Could Be Detected by a Simple Blood Test

    Let's hope this study holds up to scrutiny.

    Screening for non-specific cancer is difficult because cancer is really just a catch-all term for very different diseases with a range of causes, symptoms, and treatments. A new study says researchers have found a common factor and a simple blood test can be used to screen patients for hundreds of types of cancer at once, but there is a drawback.

  3. Twitter Reveals Employee Diversity Numbers, Not Surprisingly Made Up of Mostly White Men

    That's an awful lot of white dudes.

They're also the latest company to release hard evidence that they're made up of mostly white dudes. Overall Twitter is 70% male, and the tech category is even more jarring with 90%.

  4. Tyrannosaurus May Have Hunted in Groups According to New Evidence

    They're hunting in packs. They do hunt in packs.

    The T-Rex has a reputation for being a bit of a loner. So much so that it's difficult to find a picture on Flickr of two of them together, but that may not have been the case. According to new footprint evidence found in British Columbia they may have hunted in family groups. Silly T-Rex. Don't you know you should travel single file to hide your numbers?

  5. Man at Arms: Reforged Combined All Four Ninja Turtle Weapons, Should Have No Trouble Defeating Shredder

    If you can mutate turtles, it's only fair to mutate their weapons too.

    Man at Arms: Reforged is known for making insane weapons from culture, but this is some next level business.

  6. Simulated Mission to Mars Ends After Four Months on “Mars”

    Real World: Fake Mars?

    The area of interpersonal relationships between astronauts on a long-term mission to Mars is a bit of a gap in NASA's research. That's where the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS) mission comes in. It spent four months studying what happens when a team of researchers in close-quarters under simulated Martian conditions stop being polite and start getting real.

  7. New Site JustLeak.it Lets You Send Anonymous Emails to Anyone…’s Spam Folder

    How could this possibly end badly?

    Justleak.it, or Leak, is a newly-launched site that lets users send anonymous messages. Have something to get off your chest? Wish someone would tell the intern who chews with his mouth open to stop doing that? Now you can. At least in theory. In practice it appears that all the anonymous messages I've sent have found their way to spam folders.

  8. Why Do Dogs Smell Each Other’s Butts? Because Science.

    The answer is pretty much always "Because science."

    Dogs have a keen sense of smell, much stronger than humans. So why then, do they use that sense of smell to sniff each other's butts? If you've ever been curious about the science of dog butts then Reactions from The American Chemical Society has the video for you. They explain exactly what dogs are sniffing for, and about their secret second dog nose, the Jacobson organ.

  9. Monday Cute: This Video Will Change Your Mind About How Adorable Armadillos Are

    Unless you already think they're adorable, then you're already on the right side of history.

  10. Dulcolax Drops an Ad With Poop People in Butt Jail

    It's good to see Gloppy is still getting work after the Candyland redesign.

    Laxative company Dulcolax has partnered with ad agency McCann Healthcare Worldwide and production company The Visionary Group to push this turd of an ad out into the world. It depicts humanoid poops trapped in a prison waiting, presumably, for Dulcolax to come break them out? It bet this really gets sales moving again.
