When it comes to smartphones, Easter eggs normally mean a hidden drawer of emoji, or maybe the ability to make the voice control sing you a song.

Scientists say these mysterious shrimps may hold keys to alien life

According to exobiologists at NASA, these mysterious shrimps and its symbiotic bacterium may hold clues "about what life could be like on other planetary bodies." It's life that may be similar—at the basic level—to what could be lurking in the oceans of Europa, deep under the icy crust of the Jupiter moon.

Mt. Asgard looks like the actual home of the Viking gods

Artur Stanisz takes perfect photos of landscapes. So perfect, in fact, that sometimes they seem unreal. Like this image of Mount Asgard, a strange double-peak on the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. It feels like the actual home of the Nordic Gods. The rest of his photos are even more stunning.

A beautiful photo of the cockpit of the Lockheed MC-130

Combat jet airplanes may be way more sleeker and cooler than cargo planes, but there is something magnificent about slowly flying in one of these beast, looking at the landscape in calm morning through the huge windows of the cockpit.

The solitude of space exploration should be turned into a tablet game

There might not be anything more awesome than going to space. It's an incredible achievement and the idea of exploring the unknown is fascinating. But as this short animation called Solus by Zac Dixon for Identity Visuals shows, it can get quite lonely. Watch it, it's nearly as good as any feature.

12 things that look surprisingly awesome when cut in half

I don't know about you, but I love to see things cut in half. Sometimes they are boring, but most of the times they are incredible, like the mechanical calculator shown above. It's hard to believe this metal mess works. Here's more stuff that looks awesome stuff when cut in half.

These ads are so quirky and stupid they made me laugh hard

Man, watching these sweaters dance made me laugh hard. I confess I'm a sucker for quirky humor and these ads—for this year's Gap gift guide—are without a doubt the quirkiest I've seen in a long while.

This shoe repair video can provoke intense pleasure waves

If you experience ASMR, prepare to feel some intense pleasure watching this video of a guy repairing shoes. The machines pressing down, the cutting of the sole, the sanding, the stitching, the brushing of the glue. It's a symphony of satisfying noises. It's the only soundtrack you need.

What would happen if you lived in a country with only terrible music

I totally agree with what this ad for Belgium-based radio station Studio Brussel says: Good music is a human right. Or at least, the United Nations should ban You're Beautiful and James Blunt from everyfreakingwhere.

Do the Over-the-Top Twitter References In Chef Totally Ruin the Movie?

Do the Over-the-Top Twitter References In Chef Totally Ruin the Movie?

I finally got around to seeing Chef, the Jon Favreau film about a chef who joins Twitter and (SPOILER ALERT) starts a food truck. Now food trucks and Twitter go together like Korean BBQ and tacos but in this film the tweet-integration was ridiculously blatant—really, to the point of distraction. So much so that when the film came out earlier this year, tons of people were asking: Did Twitter pay for all that promotion?

How a lock works explained in one perfect cutaway video

I'm a big fan of cutaway things, specially if they are real like this lock. It's fascinating to see how machines and mechanisms work, with the little pins and springs moving to fit the shape of the key, leaving the barrel free to move when everything clicks.

Netflix Nabs a Tina Fey-Created Series From NBC

Saving shows that networks stupidly cancelled has been kind of a thing for the new wave of content creators, like Yahoo famously taking the reins of Community . In a slightly different twist, Netflix has snapped up a midseason replacement from NBC, starring Ellie Kemper and created by Tina Fey.

Beyonce: 7/11

As a Friday treat to her mortal fans, Beyonce released two of the songs off her upcoming deluxe version of last year's Beyonce, which is coming out November 24. Both songs are good, but I can't resist Beyonce when she raps so I'm favoring "7/11."

7 Drone Ideas Cooler than TGI Friday's Dumb Mistletoe Drone Idea

You might've seen a mistletoe-toting drone (sponsored by TGI Friday's) pop up in your Facebook feed this week. This idea is both dumb and unoriginal. Some maker-types deployed a mistletoe drone in San Francisco last year. That was cute . This is a marketing stunt.

As the movie-going public slowly catches up on who Thanos is and what he has planned for the universe, the comic book fans of the world eagerly—but cautiously—wait to see how Marvel will bring The Infinity Gauntlet to the big screen. There's one thing that's for certain, though, there's definitely going to finally be some fantastic infinity gauntlet merchandise hitting stores.
