Scientists reveal the secrets of mysterious ship found under 9/11 ruins

Scientists have found the secrets of the old ship unearthed in 2010 under the ruins of the Twin Towers. First, the large vessel—buried under 22 feet (6.7 meters) of soil and wreckage—was built around the same time the Declaration of Independence was signed. There's more—but there's also one big mystery left unsolved.

How the "10 Percent of Our Brains" Myth Started (And Why It's Wrong)

by Andrew Tarantola

Morgan Freeman can make anything sound legit no matter scientifically implausible. In Lucy for example, which premiered last Friday, his character cites the "fact" that humans only use about 10 percent of our brain's resources. This is very, very wrong! But why does it keep getting tossed around? And how much of our brains are we actually using?

The Time Has Come: Facebook Forcing Smartphone Users To Download Separate Messaging App

by Mary Beth Quirk

Have the urge to send a Facebook message to your ex at goodness knows what time in the morning saying Zeus only knows what? If you want to make that mistake on your phone, soon you’ll have to download the social network’s entirely separate Messenger app, or forever keep your peace. Until the next time you hang out with your pal tequila, at least.

We were warned of the impending separation back in April, when Facebook started urging users to make the switch on their own. European users had to make the switch at that time, and apparently Facebook liked what happened there.

That means it’s out of Americans’ hands now: Any iPhone or Android smartphone users will get a few reminders featuring an impatient cartoon otter whose adorability is ostensibly designed to make the forced migration less painful, but is also going to annoy the heck out of some people nonetheless. Because no one wants an otter telling them what to do (note: this might just be for iPhone users because I’m not seeing any otters that shouldn’t be there on my Android phone) .

Eventually, the otter/non-otter message will go away and you simply won’t be able to send messages from the main app.

Users will also get an email about the change soon, but for the time being, Facebook issued a statement to TechCrunch:

Facebook In the next few days, we’re continuing to notify more people that if they want to send and receive Facebook messages, they’ll need to download the Messenger app. As we’ve said, our goal is to focus development efforts on making Messenger the best mobile messaging experience possible and avoid the confusion of having separate Facebook mobile messaging experiences. Messenger is used by more than 200 million people every month, and we’ll keep working to make it an even more engaging way to connect with people.

People using the Facebook apps for iOS and Android tablets, as well as all desktop versions, are safe for the time being.

So why force people to have two apps instead of one? Facebook says people using Messenger reply 20% faster, and that it’ll make both its apps better by not having to support two different versions of mobile chat. Instead, your phone just has to have room for two different apps from the same company. Thanks for nothing, otter.

Sure enough, you can play 'Doom' on an ATM

Cable Snaps on 60 MPH Amusement Park Ride

Cable Snaps on 60 MPH Amusement Park Ride

This is the Skyhawk, a 10-story tall "Screamin' Swing" ride that flings its passengers round and round at up to 60 mph. It's the tallest of its kind, bringing its 40 passengers as high as 125 feet off the ground at the apex of a swing. It's scary enough on a normal day. Last night, one of its cables snapped.

Man On The Hood Of Car Is The Most Terrifying Dash Cam You'll Ever See

by Michael Ballaban

Every "driver's worst nightmare" scenario involves a child jumping out to chase a ball, or a truck careening into your path, or breaking down on a lonely road. But a clearly drug-addled man, riding the hood of your car, staring you in the face with dead eyes and clawing at your windshield is much worse.
