6 Simple Ways to Improve Bars

Bars shaped like a sine wave (or cosine, I'm open to ideas) could seat more people than the linear bars we see every day, AND those people can also actually see each other as if they were sitting around a table, instead of in a row. Sine bars also have built in points where people who aren't sitting can immediately get the bartender's attention. Now everyone can feel like that one hot-looking, incredibly loud girl.

15 Photographs of the Superstructures That Put Us in Space

“It is easy to invent a flying machine,” said the 19th century aviation engineer Otto Lilienthal, “[and] more difficult to build one; to make it fly is everything.” The challenge of air (and later, space) travel began not with building aircraft, but with building a realistic simulation machine in which to test those aircraft. The same went for NASA, in its earliest incarnations. When I visited a few years ago, the massive warehouses and test sites had mostly been turned into museums. But at one time, those superstructures held the key to putting man into orbit. Massive, yawning wind tunnels, huge scaffolding towers, and million-ton excavation sites were the first concrete (har har) evidence of progress towards space. Sure, the rockets and shuttles stole the show—but there’s a whole bevy of remarkable construction achievements that went along with building them.

The 50 Craziest Lies in Wikipedia History

Since its launch on January 15, 2001, Wikipedia has been the target of waves upon waves of criticism. At first most of it was warranted. The pages of the free online crowd-sourced encyclopedia contained a great number of factual errors, making it easy for established encyclopedia brands like Encyclopedia Britannica to throw shots. Teachers and professors forbade their students from using Wikipedia as a source in their work. The tide began to change, however, as Jimmy Wale's project grew, and the editing and contribution system he put in place, one which allowed anyone with some free time to lend a hand, became more refined. Independent studies began to show that Wikipedia's information was virtually as reliable as for-pay encyclopedias, giving credence to Wale's dream to provide all of the world's information for free to whoever wants it.

27 Actors Who Started Out on ER

Hollywood changed forever 20 years ago today, when ER made its premiere on NBC and transformed George Clooney from Working Actor You Might Recognize from Roseanne, The Facts of Life, and/or Return of the Killer Tomatoes! to, well, George Clooney. And though The Cloons hung up his scrubs in order to pursue big-screen opportunities in 1999, the long-running medical drama—created by novelist Michael Crichton—did just fine without Dr. Doug Ross. The series ran for an impressive 15 seasons, racking up 124 Emmy nominations in the process. While it maintained an impressive roster of super talented series regulars (including William H. Macy and Ving Rhames) and guest stars (including Ewan McGregor and Susan Sarandon) and even managed to get Quentin Tarantino to direct an episode, ER also gave a jump start to the careers of dozens of then-newbie actors who would go on to rise up the Hollywood ladder.
