Kenny Hickman stopped to get a tank of gas from a station on Military Road in Slidell, Louisiana and discovered it was covered in A SWARM OF MAYFLIES! So, instead of pumping gas, he shot this video which his wife Sandy Callegan Hickman posted on Facebook. It will undoubtedly make your skin crawl.
FYI: This site tells you ways to "survive" a mayfly swarm.
The stuff nightmares are made of: TEETH NAILS.

This is Felix, a super-weird cat lamp by Belgian design house Studio Job that switches on by pressing its tiny gold testicles. When you do, its eyes will glow. O...kay...

On Ars Technica, Dan Goodin has a deep dive into the strange, freaky world of badBIOS. Read the rest
