  1. Google’s “Hey, Let’s Just Cure Death” Company Calico Launches New Website

    Googles never say die!

    Last year Google launched a side project that's fairly ambitious—curing death. Yup. That death. The company is called Calico, shortened from California Life Company.

  6. Be Buried in Bacon Coffin After Dying at an Early Age Because of Your Love for Bacon

    You might want to get one a size up, though. You know, cuz of all that bacon you'll be eating.

    Okay, that's it, Internet. You've ruined bacon for me. Seriously, I was with y'all when it came to the bacon jewelry and the bacon flavored jelly beans and the bacon vodka and the bacon suits -- but this bacon coffin? This is too much. Shut it down.

  7. How and Why I’m Donating My Body to Science

    I don't plan on ever dying, but it's good to have a backup plan.

    I might die some day. I know. I'm bummed too. Hopefully not anytime soon, but I started thinking about my post-death options recently after a relative's funeral. While "never die ever" is still at the top of my list, I've decided that donating my body to science should be my alternative. It's not like I'm going to be doing anything with it after I'm dead. I might as well help science.

  9. Make It Count, Dude: Spider Species Dies After Having Sex

    Male dark fishing spiders have just one roll in the hay in them. After mating, the arachnids immediately curl up and die.

    I know the human dating game can seem rough at times, but the fact of the matter is, we have it pretty good. Don't believe me? Consider if you will the sorry state of Dolomedes tenebrosus, the dark fishing spider. A recent study of the spiders, common around the American midwest, found that males of the species get a grand total of one shot at breeding -- immediately after copulation, their work on this Earth done, the creatures promptly curl up and die.

  10. Russian Airliner Makes Seven Trips With Dead Guy Frozen in Wheel Well

    This is normally where we'd make a joke about this, but it seems a bit morbid.

    Russian authorities probably knew to expect nothing good when they found blood splatters near the wheel well of an Airbus 330 passenger plane operated by iFly airlines. They probably still weren't prepared for the implications of what they found, though -- a 22-year-old Georgian man dead and frozen in the plane's wheel well. What's worse? An autopsy showed that the unfortunate young man, Giorgio Abduladze, had been dead for four days, and made as many as seven trips as a deceased stowaway before his body was discovered last week.
