  1. Review: Olympic Swimming Documentary Touch The Wall Celebrates Female Friendship And Strength

    100% Couch Potato friendly.

    I am not an athletic person. In highschool I loathed PE with a pure, righteous anger, and I still haven't gotten over my ensuing hate for organized sports. Given my proud couch potato status, I was surprised by the ways in which Touch the Wall, a documentary about Olympic swimming champs Missy Franklin and Kara Lynn Joyce, still resonated with me.

    Bork Bork Bork

    As of today, the Winter Olympics have come to a close. But in case the nuances of the curling finals still escape you, the Swedish Chef is here to provide his expertise. His country did take home silver, after all. Clearly, we are in the presence of an expert.

  3. The Olympics Are Ending Today, So Here’s Speed Skating Mario Kart-Style

    The only way this video could be any better is if they somehow included Daisy.

    The Olympics are over as of today! To stave off your inevitable Olympic-withdrawal symptoms, we present you this video created by Michael Shanks (probably not the Stargate SG-1 guy). It's a Speed Skating run - but with all the trappings of a Mario Kart course. Oh, and the narration is perfect.

  4. Here’s How They’re Making It Snow at the Olympics, Because Sochi Is Actually Pretty Warm

    Because sports can't work without science.

    Despite a large portion of Russia being extremely cold, Sochi is actually fairly warm in terms of cities that have hosted the Winter Olympics. It's so warm, in fact, that reporters have even done some sunbathing while attending the games, so here's how science helps the winter sports get the snow they need.

  5. Can You Drink Too Much Water? AsapSCIENCE Explains Water Intoxication [Video]

    It's like being drunk on water, only you could also die.

    Short answer: yes. But don't worry, because odds are that you're probably not drinking enough water to begin with, so it's probably not something you have to worry about unless you're a world-class marathon runner. Just in case, though, AsapSCIENCE wants you to know what happens if you drink too much water at once.

  6. Watch the Jamaican Bobsled Team’s Weird 8-Bit Music Video Because Real Life Is Now Cool Runnings

    Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme!

    Were you upset after watching Cool Runnings to find out that the movie took massive liberties and only really based on a true story in the sense that, yes, Jamaica had a bobsled team ? Don't worry, this year's Jamaican bobsled team has you covered, and they've even got a weird bobsled song complete with its own 8-bit music video.

  7. Science and Under Armor May Be Slowing Down the US Olympic Speed Skating Team

    Well that's a drag.

    Under Armor tried to use science to create the world's fastest uniform for US speed skaters, and it appears they may have accidentally done just the opposite. US Olympic speed skaters are falling well below the placements they'd expect, and blame is falling on the suit. When they lose at video games, I bet their controllers are also "broken."

  8. AsapSCIENCE Explains the Diet of Olympic Athletes

    Daily AsapSCIENCE vids are our favorite thing about the Olympics.

    What should Olympic athletes eat? What do Olympic athletes eat? As part of their daily series of Olympic videos, AsapSCIENCE tackles the question of Olympic diet, and how it changes from athlete to athlete and sport to sport. Sports aren't really our thing, but we sure do love science and food.

  9. Is the Norwegian Curling Team Wearing Illegal Pants? (Probably Not, We Hope)

    A curling team once bit my sister.

    In addition to being a sport that involves brooms and sweeping, curling also has surprisingly strict rules about what constitutes a proper uniform for the sport (you know, so people remember that it is a sport). As it turns out, Norway's Olympic team might be in trouble, and all because of the funky-fresh pants they're styling.

  10. Olympic Skiing Is Way Better When Combined With Star Wars [Video]

    Odds of surviving Sochi are 758 to 1.

    All everyone wants to talk about recently is the Olympics, which gets kind of boring for us nerdy types who aren't exactly into physical competition unless it involves robots and lasers. If the Olympics featured AT-ATs that shoot to disrupt skiers like they do in this video, we'd be way more interested. Some Jedi wouldn't hurt, either.
