6 Creepy New Weapons the Police and Military Use To Subdue Unarmed People
The US is at the forefront of an international arms development effort that includes a remarkable assortment of technologies, which look and sound like they belong in a Hollywood science fiction thriller. From microwave energy blasters and blinding laser beams, to chemical agents and deafening sonic blasters, these weapons are at the cutting edge of crowd control. The Pentagon's approved term for these weapons is "non-lethal" or "less-lethal" and they are intended for use against the unarmed. Designed to control crowds, clear streets, subdue and restrain individuals and secure borders, they are the 21st century's version of the police baton, pepper spray and tear gas. As journalist Ando Arike puts it, "The result is what appears to be the first arms race in which the opponent is the general population." The demand for non-lethal weapons (NLW) is rooted in the rise of television. In the 1960s and '70s the medium let everyday Americans witness the violent tactics used to suppress the civil rights and anti-war movements.
10 Incredible Repurposed Bank Vaults
Reduce, reuse, recycle is our motto, and we feel especially proud when it’s applied to really big objects, like buildings, for example. Bank vaults are of course not only large, but also incredibly thick and heavy constructions, but that’s no reason not to repurpose them! In fact, it’s amazing to see how many creative uses people have found for old bank vaults, converting them into everything from coffee shops and restaurants, to dressing rooms and art galleries. What’s more, in inhabiting such repurposed spaces, it’s surely impossible not to feel inspired by their history. These were once of course — and still are — the securest of places, where millions of dollars were stored, and which bank robbers no doubt plotted to somehow break into. Here are 10 bank vaults you’d happily spend a few hours in, without even feeling claustrophobic.
11 Things The Bible Bans, But You Do Anyway
Yesterday, I found myself in a discussion about the anti-abortion people. The reason: It's just incomprehensible to us that people get so zealous about that issue that they'll go as far as to murder doctors who perform abortions and bomb abortion clinics. The conversation then took its natural turn to selective, self-serving interpretations of the Bible... finding a few verses that you can use to justify a position that lets you impose your morality on someone, and riding those verses hard and fast for the rest of your life. So I thought it'd be a good time to find a bunch of stuff that the Bible bans... stuff that's a lot LESS convenient. Don't worry, though... just because I'm pointing it out, that doesn't mean you now have to follow it. It's a lot easier to keep discriminating against gay people for no particular reason than to stop eating bacon, after all.

20 Awesomely Untranslatable Words From Around The World
There are at least 250,000 words in the English language. However, to think that English – or any language – could hold enough expression to convey the entirety of the human experience is as arrogant of an assumption as it is naive.
5 Real-world Uses Of Big Data
In the past year, big data has emerged as one of the most closely watched trends in IT. Organizations today are generating more data in a single day than that the entire Internet was generated as recently as 2000. The explosion of “big data”–much of it in complex and unstructured formats–has presented companies with a tremendous opportunity to leverage their data for better business insights through analytics. Wal-Mart was one of the early pioneers in this field, using predictive analytics to better identify customer preferences on a regional basis and stock their branch locations accordingly. It was an incredibly effective tactic that yielded strong ROI and allowed them to separate themselves from the retail pack. Other industries took notice of Wal-Mart’s tactics — and the success they gleaned from processing and analyzing their data — and began to employ the same tactics.
