YouTube hasn't ever been one to skimp on the Easter eggs, but this is a new one for me.
It's hidden away on the timeline that charts your progress through a video. If you highlight that timeline and hold left — either left on an attached game controller, or the left arrow key — in certain versions of YouTube (I'll get to that in a minute), you can summon a dog.

It takes a bit, so be patient. If you've watched any of the video, it'll rewind first. Then you want to keep holding left for another ...more
Jasmin Paris, a British ultrarunner, just made history by completely smashing the course record for the Montane Spine Race. And she did it while continuing to express milk for her 14-month-old child.
With a time of 83 hours and 12 minutes, Paris not only became the first woman to ever win the race, but she set a new record, beating Eoin Keith — who previously held the best time if 95 hours and 17 minutes — by more than 12 hours.
The Montane Spine Race spans a grueling 268 miles through Pennine Way, and as inov-8 explained, is extra challenging because of extreme winter weather cond...more

Let Jim Cantore scare you into staying inside this weekend.
The Weather Channel meteorologist stars in a new video previewing this weekend's winter storm, which is set to strike the Midwest and Northeast. Like the network's previous videos about storm surges and wildfires, the segment utilizes immersive mixed reality (IMR), which means that that simulated fallout from the storm "happens" around Cantore as the video progresses.
It also means that everything looks extremely real and scary. A power line falls. A city bus skids on the ice. Are you venturing outdoors this weekend? Please do n...more
Bored of regular fireworks? ALE, a Japanese "space entertainment" company, is working on making artificial meteor showers an option. ALE has already managed to send its first satellite into orbit to conduct experiments ahead of their first attempt for a meteor show due in 2020.

Mortal Kombat tops the very short list of video games that have cemented themselves as permanent staples of pop culture. Whether it's pro wrestlers, Wreck-It Ralph, Zayn Malik's Met Gala outfit, or Lil Wayne and Skrillex tracks, its influence far exceeds the confines of a fighting game.
You'd think after nearly three decades, it'd get old. But the hype for Mortal Kombat 11 is still just as fatal.

In a video uploaded to YouTube on Friday, Shitty Robots creator Simone Giertz elaborated on what she disclosed on Twitter last week: that her non-cancerous brain tumor, for which she had brain surgery last year, has grown enough that she now plans to undergo radiation treatment.
Giertz explained that her doctors decided to leave a piece of the tumor behind in a section of the brain where performing surgery was particularly risky. That's the piece that, over the past eight months, has grown.
"We knew that there was a risk it would grow down the line, which it has," she said. "It's just that the...more

What happens when you have a tractor, a couch, and a frozen lake? This, apparently.
Friends enjoying a frigid winter day in Minnesota decided to put a couch on Lake Minnetonka. Somewhere between Excelsior Bay and Wayzata Bay, the friends stumbled upon a man on his farm tractor doing something typically reserved for Target parking lots: donuts. They joined forces, found a couch, and went to town.
Glide or die, my friends. Read more...
