Watch an Electric Car Hit 60 MPH in Less Than 1.8 Seconds

Stuttgart, Germany, knows its cars—both Porsche and Mercedes-Benz are headquartered there. But a bunch of upstart Stuttgart University students recently put the town on the automotive map for a different sort of achievement, setting the 0-62 mph acceleration record for an electric vehicle at a scorching 1.779 seconds—0.006 seconds faster than the previous record, set last year by a group of Swiss students. see more

The Truth About Coffee Is Good News for Caffeine Junkies

For those of us who are deliriously, deliciously dependent on coffee, the question of whether or not our daily caffeine fix is actually good for us is moot: We're still gonna keep drinking it. But let's face it, it would be nice to know if the stuff is helping or hurting us—at least then we'd know if we should feel more or less guilty about that third (or fourth) cup. So what's the story?

Calvin Klein's Latest Campaign Is All About Sexting

Everyone knows sex sells. Calvin Klein is about to find out if sexting does, too. On Wednesday, Calvin Klein Jeans launched its fall 2015 campaign, which is inspired by the way the digital landscape has changed dating and sex. The images, shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti, feature photos of young people hooking up. The ads carry the tagline "raw texts, real stories," so they also include the sometimes racy text exchanges that brought the two (or in one case three) people together. A sampling: So what ... he's just cool with you doing what you want? We don't tell see more

Alexander Wang Said to be Departing Balenciaga

It was lovely while it lasted, wasn't it? Balenciaga's current creative director, Alexander Wang, will be leaving the French brand after showing his spring/summer 2016 womenswear collection in September, reports WWD.

Jimmy Kimmel Gets Choked Up Over the Killing of Cecil the Lion

On his nightly talk show, Jimmy Kimmel usually keeps things pretty lighthearted. Last night, however, the late night TV host got serious over the recent killing of an African lion named Cecil. That led the 47-year-old to tear into the suspected killer, Walter James Palmer of Minnesota, comparing him to the now universally despised Bill Cosby and rightly calling him and his act "vomitous". If you question Kimmel's intentions (but, really, why would you?) just watch his impassioned monologue in the clip above, where he Kimmel even gets visibly choked up about Cecil's untimely fate.

Adidas Releases an All-Black Stan Smith Primeknit

For all the noise Adidas has made with its high-profile sneaker releases this summer, one of the ones we're most excited about is a relatively simple all-black shoe. The company's recently released black-on-black Stan Smith Primeknit might not inspire a ton of Internet headlines or get re-sold on eBay for thousands of dollars, but it's still a solidly attractive and covetable shoe. While Adidas has put other, more colorful variants of this shoe on the market this year, this model's subtlety gives it a quiet appeal. You can get your own pair of the limited-edition shoe through the Swiss retailer see more

The Simpsons Predicted a Trump Presidency 15 Years Ago

In a lot of ways, The Simpsons is one of the most forward-thinking programs on television. Case in point: 15 years ago, its writers predicted Donald Trump would run for president. And here we are.

You can see the rest of the hilarity (Bart gets see more

1. The Tie "I actually just made this tie. The tag says albert hammond jr. for jacques-elliott. He's this young entrepreneur, and he wanted to mix Malcolm McLaren and Ralph Lauren, with the idea that you can wear it with a suit or you can wear it with a jean jacket. Ties were always my thing.

The Weeknd Is on Fire—Literally—in the Video For "I Can't Feel My Face"

While reigning Queen of Pop Taylor Swift was all but promised the unofficial title of Song of the Summer, many are shocked at the mind-blowing rise of The Weeknd's toe-tappingly energetic "I Can't Feel My Face." An infectious blend of vocal pyrotechnics and electronic funk, the song is currently #1 on the iTunes chart, despite the fact that the LP isn't out for another month.
