Robert Kirkman Very Optimistically Thinks The Walking Dead Could Have More Than Five Seasons Left

Standard

Robert Kirkman is apparently discounting the possibility that ratings fall and AMC cancels The Walking Dead. Or, the expense eventually makes the show not worth it, and AMC cancels it. Or, and I think we all agree this is the most likely option, the world ends in an apocalypse that makes The Walking Dead both redundant and hard to produce.

Geoengineering Could Be a Disaster for Astronomy

Standard

Geoengineering is one of those things that sounds like maybe a good idea on paper but could also go horribly, apocalyptically wrong. But if the prospect of plunging Earth’s weather systems into chaos isn’t enough to convince scientists we need to tread very cautiously with the ultimate global warming tech-fix, perhaps this will: geoengineering could be a disaster for science.

Watch Rope Get Made From a Tree Using a Thousand-Year-Old Technique

Standard

Making rope is hard. Making rope the way the Vikings did it over a thousand years ago is even harder. First, you have to find the right tree. Then, you have to strip the bark of the tree when the sap is rising. And then, you soak the bark you just harvested in the sea for three to four months before you can even think about turning it into rope.

Several Women Shared Their Experiences Having A Threesome And Their Stories Are Just Top-Notch

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to have a threesome then boy, are you in luck today. And even if you haven’t ever wondered, or if you have actually already participated in one, then this is still your lucky day.

Because nine women just revealed their experiences having a threesome over at Esquire UK and I have to tell you, these are some pretty darn good stories.

Some highlights…

“It was one guy and two girls. They were a married couple, and I was best friends with them both. We had talked about it happening several times before, but never actually did it. The night it happened we were all drinking with several friends and somehow just wound up in the bedroom. Myself and the other girl were wearing onesies and he undressed us and then started kissing us. He started having sex with me first and then her. I was a little hesitant to initiate things since they were married and I didn’t want to upset her. At one point I went down on her while he had sex with me doggy style, and then she went down on me while he did the same to her. She got on top of him and I sat on his face. It actually flowed pretty well and nothing was weird the next day.” — Lucy, 28

“A guy friend of mine had the great idea for us to visit a swinger’s club. He’d been before and I was curious, so I went with it. Initially we had sex in a private room, just to get it out of the way. (It was our first time having sex together). After that, we checked out other couples in private rooms. We found a couple who allowed us to watch. My friend was so turned on and I was really into it so I asked, ‘Can I play?’ The other guy was completely into it. So as his female companion was going down on him I joined in. The girl was kind of cute and I asked her if she’d be ok if I touched her. She was into it and I went for it! She continued with her guy and I began focusing on her. I fondled her breasts, but they weren’t too big so I lost interest and went lower. At this point it was go big or go home, so I just dove in head first and began licking her vagina. The next thing I know, my friend was banging me from behind. He’s a bit on the small side so he was really thrusting and my teeth ended up hitting the girl’s vagina. It was awkward but made for an interesting start of our night.” — Kendal, 27

“It was my roommate’s boyfriend’s birthday. We took him out to dinner, totally casual. There was no talk of anything sexual happening that night. We went back to our place for more drinks. So we were all feeling pretty good when my roommate started making out with her boyfriend. Then me. Then it was me and her boyfriend. Things got crazy and we moved to the bedroom. Now at this point we were having a full-blown threesome in her bed. We all suddenly stopped when we heard banging at the front door. It was my date that I forgot about. We convinced him to leave. Her boyfriend threw up and then it was on to round two: lube was being brought in, lingerie was being brought in, things were getting weird. I woke up the next morning and couldn’t look anyone in the eyes. Later that day her boyfriend called and formally thanked us. Safe to say it was one for the books.” — Julia, 23

“I had a threesome with my best girl friend and the guy I lost my virginity to. It was the 4th of July and this guy had been asking me about it forever. So my friend and I were just like, ‘What the hell! He should come over.’ So we had a threesome in my bed, and it was so hot that he was dripping sweat all over the both of us. I made fun of him the whole time to take my edge off, and I definitely could not watch them have sex. It wasn’t on my bucket list, but now it is definitely off!” — Abigail, 21

“I once had an all-female threesome. We were friends staying at my house and all of us had boyfriends at the time. We got drunk in the hot tub and starting playing truth or dare. After a couple daiquiris and shots of vodka we were all naked. Next thing I knew we were all in the shower together making out. We had then made a pact to never tell our boyfriends and that we would never share what happened outside of this room. We then went to the pull out mattress and started. After about 30 minutes and a few orgasms we all decided that enough had been enough and parted our own ways and went to bed. It was the most passionate of the threesomes I’ve done so far!” — Cat, 21

Modern Cabins I’d Love to Curl Up In

Standard

Humans don’t hibernate, but you might be tempted to when you see these four gorgeous modern cabins. Generally, coziness isn’t a quality that we associate with modern architecture, but these four buildings manage to defy that expectation, presenting a refuge from the elements that’s as design-forward as it is warm and welcoming.

The breathtaking building above and below is one of the homes that comprises The Twins, two vacation homes designed for two brothers in upstate New York. (You can see the second home through the window in the last photo.)


***

This little modern guesthouse, located in the woods in upstate New York, is a book lover’s dream. Openings in the cabin’s solid oak walls serve as bookshelves, and there’s a wood-burning stove to keep warm on even the coldest winter days. See more at Dezeen.


***

This little cabin isn’t a cabin at all, but a small annex, intended to serve as a guest house, at Split View Mountain Lodge, a family vacation house in the mountains of Norway. See more at AD España.


***

This simple, oblong house by Ina Matt was inspired by a barn located on the property before the house was built. The peaked roof creates a cozy feel, the black walls make a lovely contrasting with the surrounding woodland, and an entire wall of windows on one side of the house invites the outdoors in (but not the cold).

*Which one would you curl up into this winter?

This bed with built-in subwoofer, TV, lamp and power outlets may be your last purchase, ever

Standard

Furlenco’s new “Pod” might just be the most outrageous product hitting the market this holiday season. The Bangalore, India based furniture rental startup has always had a penchant for targeting the millennial subset, but this is something else entirely — because as any 20-something knows, adding a bed to things makes them universally more practical.

The Pod includes a 32-inch mounted television, Bluetooth connectivity, 2:1 channel speakers with a serious subwoofer, an adjustable reading light, ports to charge your gear, a bookshelf and, for good measure, a bed.

The startup’s entire model is based on the premise that renting furniture is easier than buying it, especially when you live in an apartment and move frequently. So if you want to get your hands on one of these, you’ll need to come up with 2999 Rupees per month, or roughly $44. The team is also selling a lower priced 2499 Repee version ($37), but it lacks an included TV. Seriously though, what’s a bed without a TV anyway? Lame.

Unfortunately, this is all assuming you live in Bangalore, Mumbai or Pune. The rest of us are out of luck for now. If it ever does make it to the States, I’m calling for the end of the world as we know it. Beds are pretty much already the desks of the 21st century and the Pod is a natural extension of this.

It also presents a half-decent business opportunity for the upwardly mobile. Like the air-mattress-in-closet before it, your unethical Airbnb self kinda wants to put dividers around a handful of these bad boys and charge $2500+ a month, each.

It’s all fine and good until the efficiency of the Pod starts to kill off your personal relationships. The five people sharing one in the video below would probably result in some sick, home-cooked, version of Survivor. Heck, we’d all probably start forgetting to eat if we couldn’t find some way to hack a Google Home to open the door for our friendly neighborhood Postmate.
