  1. We Have Real, Living Glow in the Dark Pigs Now, Because Science Says “Why Not?”

    Making pigs who are their own nightlight was surprisingly high on the list of genetic engineering uses.

    Advances in genetic engineering have allowed scientists at the South China Agricultural University to raise piglets that glow green when exposed to black light. If you were already on the fence about whether there's a God, you might have your answer in that none of these scientists were smote for creating light switch rave-ready pigs.

  2. Canada Mint Offers a Glow-in-the-Dark Dinosaur Quarter

    If you're a collector of coins, all things Canadian, or dinosaur paraphernalia, has the Canadian mint got something for you. Presenting: A Canadian quarter showcasing a dinosaur that, when the lights turn down, glows in the dark as its own skeleton.

  3. Absurd And Expensive Glow-In-The-Dark Pants Are Probably The Next Big Thing

    What you really need in your wardrobe is a pair of glow-in-the-dark pants. Who wouldn't want to be able to step into a dimly lit bar or restaurant and have their pants light up neon green? Anyone who doesn't want to be the person standing there with the glowing butt, that's who. More likely than not, the joy generated from having these glow-in-the-dark jeans from Naked & Famous is likely to fade after first wear, unless you happen to be a fine purveyor of basement rave parties. For those so inclined, the jeans (which apparently look totally normal under bright light) will set you back around $240. They are available exclusively from Barney's New York. Here's to hoping that this doesn't become a fad, but as with all things fashion, the trend seems to be the weirder the better. Glowing butts across America, here we come. More pictures of the jeans after the break.

  4. Researchers Create Glowing Dog That Can Be Turned On and Off

    Researchers at Seoul National University have announced the creation of a genetically modified, glow-in-the-dark dog. The female beagle, named Tegon, glows fluorescent under ultraviolet light. But, perhaps surprisingly, glow-in-the-dark animals aren't all that new since we've seen glowing pigs and fish before. What is particularly interesting about Tegon is that the glowing ability is capable of being turned on and off. When ingested by the dog with food, the drug doxycycline can activate or deactivate the ability to glow. Led by Lee Byeong-chun, the researchers used the same somatic cell nuclear transfer technique to make Tegon glow that was used in 2005 to make the world's first cloned dog, Snuppy.

  5. Because We Can: Eight Interpretations of Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok”

    If you haven't been living under a block of obsidian the past few months, you've heard Ke$ha's hit song "Tik Tok." She performed it on Saturday Night Live and it's emerged as the go-to party anthem of contemporary America (contemporary being, again, the past few months). But whether or not it stands the time, one thing's for sure: It begs to be mocked. And a lot of people have made sure that comes to fruition. See below.
