-- Who wants to die on Mars?: Last month, we told you about Mars One recruiting humans for a one-way mission to the red planet. Guess how many people have signed up so far? TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND! That's 200,000 who know it's a one-way trip but are undeterred.
"Everything I've done academically and professionally has been for one reason: to leave this Earth and represent humanity on Mars," applicant Heidi Beemer said. Sounds like a line from a TV show. Oh wait, it will be a TV show. How else will organizers pay the $6 billion price tag?
-- If it looks too good to be true ... : That video of an eagle swooping down to pick up a baby? Fake! That eHarmony bio of a woman sobbing hysterically about how much she just LOVES cats? Fake! And, as if you needed more proof, there's this now: the worst twerk fail EVER was actually an awesome staged fail! You have to have seen the video. It got more than 9 million views in less than a week. Turns out, it was all an elaborate two-months-in-the-hatching Jimmy Kimmel stunt. Genius!
-- Slurp, slurp: You've just finished a delicious bowl of ramen and want to enjoy that delicious broth at the bottom. Too bad you can't suck it up with chopsticks. Julian Lechner had the same problem, but she's smarter than us: She came up with chopsticks that are also straws, so you can enjoy every last, delicious drop.
-- No mother's maiden name required: Sick of memorizing a dozen different passwords, each with a crazy combination of characters, numerals and capital letters? Behold the Nymi bracelet, which senses your unique heartbeat, then syncs with your phone and grants access to your accounts, your apps, even your car. You can use it to unlock everything in your life. And we mean everything. Kind of eerie, really.
