Welp, I'm never fishing again.  Terry Selwood was hoping to catch some snapper off the coast of Evans Head in Australia when a great white shark leapt out of the sea and into his boat.  SEE ALSO: Police chopper warns paddleboarders they're surrounded by 15 sharks "I caught a blur of something coming over the boat … and the pectoral fin of the shark hit me on the forearm and knocked me down on the ground to my hands and knees," the 73-year-old told the Australia Broadcasting Association.  The...

Friends, when it comes to online recreation, you've got a lot of options. You could watch an intricate candle carving video, for example. Or watch slime being made. Or watch a nice clip of waterfall.

Today, I'd like to throw another internet activity into the mix for your consideration: semi-truck parking videos. SEE ALSO: I am both mortified and mesmerized by these makeup destruction...

Pope Francis is not here for your Instagram likes. The Pope was recently photographed with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was just born for the camera. But instead of smiling, the Pope decided he would put on his best "I'd rather be reading encyclicals" face. SEE ALSO: Pope Francis met President Trump and looked insanely psyched about it We all thought the Pope was just really sad about meeting President Trump.

Microsoft’s Lumia 950 and 950 XL landed with a flop when they launched about a year and a half ago, but perhaps the response to them would have been a little bit better if Microsoft had stuck with its more ambitious original vision for the two devices. On Friday, Windows Central published concept images and video of both phones, indicating that Microsoft had initially planned to outfit the 950 with support for smart covers, a stylus, and edge gestures. The most interesting element here is the...

On Friday, two men, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, were brutally murdered while trying to confront someone hurling anti-Muslim epithets on a commuter train in Portland. The two have been widely hailed as heroes, but not by President Donald Trump — until Monday.  Trump broke his silence with a tweet from the @POTUS handle. Forgive us if this doesn't seem to have come from Trump himself. The Twitter account of Vice President Mike Pence also jumped in to comment. The violent...

Striking out like Josh Fuentes, however, is just straight-up embarrassing.  Batting for the Hartford Yard Goats (yes, that's a real team) on Friday night against the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (also real) in a minor league game, Fuentes watched the ball slip out of the pitcher's hand.  SEE ALSO: This outstanding play is already Major League Baseball's catch of the year Then, for some reason, he swings—and is called out by the umpire.  Ouch.

Neill Blomkamp is embarking on an experimental filmmaking venture that he’s calling Oats Studios. The District 9 and Elysium director released a trailer for some of the studio’s upcoming projects, which will be released to Steam in the next couple of months. The trailer opens with a shot of an overgrown Eiffel Tower, as a voiceover explains that aliens have come to exterminate humanity. The trailer then shows off quite a bit more: a woman shooting an alien in a red-lit corridor, American...

Superman for the N64 is considered by many to be one of the worst games of all time. But, fortunately for Superman, it wasn’t the Kryptonian’s last appearance in a video game.  Superman 64 is bad. It’s really bad. It’s so bad it’s kind of fun, but not really, because it’s so, so bad. He’s headlined games of similarly mediocre quality since then, but his best appearances have been thanks to the fighting game genre. And last week, Nether Realm Studios brought us the next iteration of those...

Though “Every Death” videos are pretty common for popular TV series, and particularly for Game of Thrones, which boasts dozens of major character deaths per season, this one required an impressive amount of work. Plus, it’s actually fun to watch. Sommer illustrates each major character with a detailed ink drawing, then...

For an apocalyptic wasteland, Fallout 4 is quite colorful. Its vista often contrasts the vibrant red and oranges of settlements with a clear blue sky. It isn’t safe, but it’s hardly frightening.

Exactly 25 years ago, on May 29, 1992, Apple CEO John Sculley went on stage during the CES show in Chicago and launched a tablet.  If that sentence sounds all wrong, that's because a lot has changed in the quarter decade since. If you even remember Sculley as Apple CEO, you're probably thinking of the man who pushed Steve Jobs out of the company. And in the nineties, no one had tablets. And isn't CES typically held in Las Vegas? To that we say: Yes, yes and yes. The tablet Sculley presented...

Think of the Sega Nomad as the Nintendo Switch of 1995. The hardware was conceptually audacious, a chunky portable that played the cartridges of Sega’s home console, the Sega Genesis. And with its AV output, the Sega Nomad could quickly and easily connect to a television. However, unlike the Switch, the Nomad never found its audience. Blame the battery life: a trio of AAAs promised, at most, three hours of play. 22 years later, modder Catch 22 on NeoGAF has remedied this problem. Catch 22...
