2015: The Year Famous People (and Puppets) Stopped Loving Each Other

When two beings who were literally made for each other split up, you know something's up. On Tuesday, just one day after Will and Jada Pinkett Smith had to fend off rumors of divorce and the same day that Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani confirmed rumors of their own, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy announced to the world that they were calling it quits. The couple made separate, but similar, statements on their respective Facebook pages: (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, see more

Texting Is Actually Changing the Evolution of Walking: Study

Any smartphone user knows that texting while you walk is both a nearly unavoidable part of modern life. Now, science is chiming in, confirming that responding to that group text about dinner might actually be changing the evolutionary way we walk. Researchers at the University of Bath in the U.K. and Texas A&M University studied 30 participants instructed to navigate a course both phone free and while texting, and found that being distracted by your phone shortens step length, reduces steps, increases the time your feet are on the ground, and makes walkers overcompensate more for obstacles. The results, published see more

Idris Elba Is the First Man to Appear on the Cover of Maxim

Are there any boundaries left for Idris Elba to break? On Tuesday, our friends at Maxim magazine revealed Elba, a long-rumored contender for the role of British superspy James Bond and a lead in the upcoming Star Trek sequel, will be the first man ever to appear on their cover. You'll see him staring from the cover of the September issue on newsstands in a few weeks, clad in a coat and trousers from Calvin Klein. It's a big moment for the magazine, which for years has been comprised mostly of women in various states of undress. Almost any attractive, see more

10 Mirrors That Add Style to Any Room

If you equate shopping for mirrors with shopping for say, socks (i.e a definite necessity, but not something that makes for an especially exciting retail experience), it's time to shift your way of thinking. The 10 examples here, some of our favorites from the recent releases, are shaking up the glass-in-a-pine-rectangle-frame formula. While some designers opted to treat the mirrored surface as a canvas for overlaying colors and geometric patterns, others striped away unnecessary detail and pomp to create minimalist handheld and free standing version. Blending solid utility and great design, all are more than worthy of deeper reflection. see more

The Trailer for the Gay Rights Drama Stonewall Is Here

Openly gay director Roland Emmerich has spent a large swath of his career in charge of big budget disaster blockbusters like The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day. His latest project, Stonewall, hits closer to home and is the fictional account of a group of street kids who find themselves at the center of the Stonewall riots in 1969. The trailer, which was released today, shows that while the story may be smaller in scope (i.e. no world's coming to an end nor aliens in sight), the movie is still big on dramatic gestures and emotion. Your first look see more

A Robot Is Going Take Your Manly Man Job Away

It's good to tell kids to be nice to nerds, given they'll probably end up working for one, and also because being nice to fellow humans is a thing we should all do anyway. But what about being nice to robots? While we definitely don't condone decapitating our robot friends and leaving their mutilated carcasses on the side of the road, it's not always easy to be affectionate to a robot when you know it will probably end up stealing your job. Which is particularly likely if you are a man, according to a story in The Atlantic. Recently, see more

This Film Explains How Sneaker Collecting Became a Multi-Billion-Dollar Business

It should surprise exactly no one that collecting sneakers is a phenomenon big enough to merit its own feature-length documentary. But the latest film about sneakerheads (entitled, cleverly enough, Sneakerheadz) goes deeper than its predecessors, profiling collectors from all over the world—and examining the fine line between admiring shoes and hoarding them. The film, which premiered at South by Southwest earlier this year, features interviews with shoe designers, fashion editors, musicians, and major collectors from around the world—all of whom help explain the history behind what Forbes reports is a $22 billion industry in the United States alone. If see more

Jeb Bush Lost 40 Pounds After Going Paleo

Turns out the Paleo Diet isn't just for professional athletes or those super-yolked guys you see spilling out of CrossFit franchises. Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida who's making a bid for the Republican party's presidential nomination, told a reporter in the all-important primary state of Iowa that he's lost 40 pounds since adopting the diet's guidelines in December. (It is not wholly ironic that he said this walking out of a Dairy Queen, small Orange Julius in hand. Cheat meals are important.) "My motivation is what gives me joy," Bush said. "I feel compelled to share that joy see more

Watch Freestyle Motocross Rider Robbie Maddison Try to Win the Entire X-Games All at Once

Robbie "Maddo" Maddison is known for crazy motocross stunts, mostly jumping over things like London's Tower Bridge, the Corinth Canal, and the San Diego Harbor. His latest stunt doesn't involve jumping anything but nonetheless seems far more impossible, because he's surfing. While still riding his bike. The bike has modifications, obviously, but surprisingly few. There are some small fins running along the sides of the wheels, for stability, and the tread on the back wheel extends out like small paddles. Otherwise, it's just Maddo hurtling full-throttle into Tahitian swells in full FMX gear. Fittingly, the video is called "Robbie see more
