    As scientists’ warnings about climate change become increasingly dire, our conversations about extreme weather events have become increasingly political. There will always be those who chastise the climate-concerned public for “politicizing the storm” but there’s also an argument for doing just that when it is the refusal of specific U.S. politicians to act on climate that increases our vulnerability to powerful storms, wildfires, and more.

    One of our dashing readers emailed us just now with a question I’m not really sure I’m seeking an answer to. “Want to know just how truly disgusting people are?” our reader asks, rhetorically, because he damn well knows the answer. He suggests that those who want to know the answer to that question simply seek out service technicians and have them describe cars that have been brought in. Then, he sent us this picture. This horrible, humanity-shaming picture. Now, out of equal parts cruelty and caring, I share it with you. More »

    As the first of Netflix’s Marvel shows to reach its third season, Daredevil has the unique challenge of telling a story that’s reflective of the journey its characters have been on since we first met them. It also has to feel fresh, exciting, and worth a return visit to Hell’s Kitchen. Daredevil season 3 does that impressively by adapting one of the hero’s most memorable arcs from Marvel Comics.

    New Zealand has some weird birds, and they know it. Sure, you’ve probably seen the Seussian kiwi, but what about the kākāpo, a flightless parrot that looks like a particularly friendly owl? Have you heard of the morepork, an owl so named because it sounds like it shouts “MORE PORK,” or the wrybill, the only bird with a crooked beak? But only one bird could be the bird of the year, so the country voted for the kererū, the drunken New Zealand wood pigeon. More »

    As a 30-something woman who grew up with The Craft, Charmed, and (of course) Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina feels like being a teen witch again. Only this time, it’s not magical pancakes or superhero costumes, it’s a dark exploration of Satanic worship and the horrors of the patriarchy. The show isn’t perfect and has problems it may never outgrow, but it is a helluva ride. Hail Satan! More »

    If you’ve ever woken up on the brink of a heart attack, drenched in sweat and convinced you’ll never live down the shame of sprinting nude through downtown Pittsburgh, you know that some dreams are more memorable than others. Most dreams, in fact, seem totally unmemorable—at least in the sense that we can’t remember them. And yet every now and then a dream will linger into breakfast and well into the day, or month, or year—will become a memory like any other. More »

    The history of smartphone improvement has largely relied on companies cramming faster or more powerful components into the now ubiquitous glass slabs we carry around. But the Pixel 3 is something else. Instead of focusing on things like a brighter screen, tons of RAM, or multiple rear cameras, almost all of the Pixel 3's advantages come from a software-first mindset. This results in a smarter, more intuitive experience that feels very different from the hardware-driven approaches employed by many of Google’s competitors. And while this isn’t Google’s first attempt at something like this, this third Pixel (we evaluated both it and the Pixel 3 XL) is the device that really pulls all of Google’s efforts together and makes it feel special.
