When you sign up to play football, you know there's a chance you might get hurt.  A new study, however, appears to confirm that for players who reach the highest levels of the sport, "chance" might be substantially higher than previously estimated, and the concept of "hurt" might be better understood as "sustaining potentially irreversible brain damage."  SEE ALSO: One of football's biggest names turns to 3D scanning tech for safer helmets A team of Boston University researchers, including...

There’s a new smart outlet on Kickstarter, and it’s modular. Smart outlets are a nice way to make your home automated without adding too much clutter, but they're usually tied to a specific function or product. That means as soon as they’re outmoded, or if you want the smart outlet to have another use, you’re stuck buying and installing another one. Swidget’s modular setup is a smart, simple idea that theoretically solves this, making smart outlets future-proof. The Swidget is made of...

Today a petition is circulating to replace a Confederate monument in Bradenton, Florida, with a monument for Snooty the manatee, a beloved local resident who passed away Sunday at the age of 69. (He was believed to be the world's oldest manatee.) The current monument is located near Snooty's former home in Bradenton. And Anthony Pusateri, who created the petition, thinks Snooty would be a much better symbol for the area. SEE ALSO: Stubbs the cat, longtime mayor of an Alaska town, dies...

What would Game of Thrones be without a little post-show dissection of obscure details? In Season 7 episode 2, "Stormborn," those details are all in written form — scrolls, texts and other communication between living characters (hopefully) or the books that guide them. SEE ALSO: Sam Tarly is the real MVP of 'Stormborn' on 'Game of Thrones' Let's start with the meatiest image HBO released: the letter Ser Jorah Mormont was writing to Daenerys Targaryen when Sam Tarly came to see him.

Artificial intelligence — software with the ability to observe, analyze, and act on its own — will play a big part in shaping our future. But will it destroy it? It's a serious question, at least as far as Elon Musk is concerned. Over the past few years, he's taken a grim view of the long-term prospects of AI, envisioning that, as computers get smarter than humans, they'll hold our very existence in their hands, and we may not like what they decide to do with that power. SEE ALSO: Elon Musk...

You know how sometimes you're tapping out a tweet or a Facebook post or an email and you hit "send" a second too soon and you're like, "shit, I shouldn't have said that?"  President Donald Trump has seemingly never felt that sensation. But perhaps he should try it out, because a tweet he sent late on Monday seems to confirm a secretive CIA program in Syria that he recently ended. SEE ALSO: 'SNL' writer treats Trump's tweets like they're text messages The president berated The Washington...

You may not know it, but the moment you become a parent your body is immediately graced with an impressive ability to save your child from danger.  For fathers, the very non-scientific term is lovingly referred to as "dad reflexes," and it's often showcased in videos of seemingly impossible scenarios in which a child is in imminent physical harm, and the dad swoops in at the last moment to save their offspring. Check out this dad, who first caused the dangerous situation, but then used his...

I was there at the beginning of Flash and yet, when Flash dies in 2020, I won't miss it. When I stumbled on the technology at the 1995 Internet World Conference in San Jose, it was called "Future Splash" and made by a tiny company called Futurewave Software, Inc. Future Splash was designed for creating web-based animations that did not use GIFs, then the prevailing internet animation and web page building block technology. SEE ALSO: Adobe is finally, finally, killing Flash Back then, we...

There's much we don't know about Destiny 2. The raid is a (not at all surprising) no-show in previews, the system governing loot drops is a giant question mark, and the loot itself carries some inscrutable elements — such as mod slots — that will only be answered with the final game. That said, this video clarifies how a huge chunk of the game works: PatrolsDestiny 2 brings back the original game's open exploration spaces, but levels up the way those spaces work.  Cooperative "Public...

Just when you thought Song of the Summer "Despacito" couldn't get any better, in comes Donald Trump to add his voice to the track. If that sounds terrible to you, at least know that it's autotuned. Okay, the Commander in Chief didn't really sing the song himself, but YouTuber Maestro Ziikos got a little creative, and pulled the whole thing off. The video supercuts a few different Donald moments of him saying each word of the song, all to the background music of "Despacito." Make this...
