(1) Comments | Posted August 28, 2014 | 7:31 PM

때때로 당신은 약간의 도움이 필요할 것이다.

예를 들어 구멍을 빠져 나오기에는 너무 큰 프레리도그처럼 말이다. 차가 달려오는 도로의 정중앙에 끼어 있다면 더욱 그렇다.

유튜브 유저 PsihAL는 화요일에 2명의 러시아인이 구멍에 낀 프레리도그를 구하는 동영상을 게시했다. 프레리도그가 구멍에 낀 이유는 무엇일까. 허리둘레일까? 아니면 인터넷 사이트

NASA's Curiosity Rover Looks Pretty Rough After Two Years On Mars (PHOTOS)

Curiosity killed the cat? Maybe. But one thing's for sure--Mars is slowly killing Curiosity.

That's Curiosity the Mars rover, which earlier this month marked its second anniversary on the red planet. And after enduring two years of blinding dust storms, daily 150-degree Fahrenheit temperature swings, and...

When You Have 99 Problems, Buy This Perfectly-Sized Case Of Beer

(0) Comments | Posted August 27, 2014 | 5:04 PM

"99 bottles of beer on the wall in the case, 99 bottles of beer..."

Well -- cans, technically, but there are 99 of them to a case. Austin Beerworks, a brewery in Texas, is selling 99-packs of its "Peacemaker Anytime Ale."

Really.

The brewery sought to reassure incredulous buyers on Twitter earlier this week that the 99-packs are actual, real things that can be bought in Austin-area liquor stores. "Is it a joke? Yes," they wrote. "Is it real? Also yes."

“I think we have become known, in Austin anyways, as a silly brewery that likes to have a good time,” co-founder Michael Graham told BrewBound. “We don’t take anything seriously other than the beer itself and this project reinforces that.”

At just over seven feet long, the $99 cases weigh 82 pounds and are so ungainly that would-be buyers are encouraged to bring a friend to help carry the monstrosity -- and to drink it.

WATCH a video on the case,...

테일러 모리스(Taylor Morris)는 아프가니스탄에서 두 팔과 두 다리를 잃은 전직 군인이다. 지난 21일, 약혼녀와 여행중이던 그는 라스베가스의 맥카란국제공항에서 난감한 상황에 빠졌다. 왼쪽 다리를 지탱해주던 의족이 망가진 것이다. 그들의 가방에는 의족을 고칠 수 있는 장비도 없었다.
