Want a pair? A limited number of these babies will be available at flagship stores and at select outlets worldwide. Run, now!
Bad news for Star Wars fanboys out there: Disney and Lucasfilm have announced that Episode VIII will come out in theaters on December 15, 2017. That’s almost two years from now, guys. Gotta be very, very patient!
Astronomers think there might be a ninth planet in our solar system—and nope, it’s not Pluto. "Planet Nine," believed to be an icy giant much larger than Earth, is supposed to be located far beyond the orbit of Pluto, making it difficult to locate. But there is evidence of its existence!
More fun space news! US astronaut Scott Kelly has grown the first-ever flower in space: a vibrant 13-petaled zinnia as beautiful as your girlfriend. Good job, sir!
Chris Evans—yep, Captain America himself—is reportedly dating the one and only Jennifer Lawrence. "They even had a pizza and movie date at Jen’s place," said a source. Damn, Evans, you’re one lucky man.
Better think twice before throwing that plastic bag in the sea: A report on the usage of plastics has concluded that "in a business-as-usual scenario, by 2050 oceans are expected to contain more plastics than fish (by weight)." Start recycling, bros.
More scary science news: Stephen Hawking says the human race might become extinct in JUST 100 YEARS due to man-made dangers like nuclear wars, global warming, and genetically-engineered viruses. Our only hope for survival? Colonies in space. And here we are, thinking that Interstellar will forever be science fiction...
Spotify has released its list of the top 10 songs people like having sex to, and they are: "Intro" by The XX, "From Eden" by Hozier, "Menswear" by The 1975, "Magic" by Coldplay, "You and Me (Flume Remix)" by Disclosure, "Sweet Ophelia" by Zella Day, "Let’s Get Started" by Dylan Gardner, "Night Like This" by LP, "Talk Is Cheap" by Chet Faker, and "Dreams" by Fou De Toi.

Remember Neighbors, that raunchy film starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron? Well, there’s a sequel, and you can bet we’re gonna watch it if only for the sheer amount of scantily clad chicks in the flick. Selena Gomez, man!
Italian doctor Sergio Canavero, who plans to do the first-ever human head transplant in 2017, has announced that he was able to successfully carry out the literally mind-boggling procedure on a monkey. Sure, that’s great. But will he be able to replicate his success on a human being?
Up your beer pong game with Hexcups: durable, reusable hexagon-shaped cups that promise to make your game easier and get you drunk much faster. Will you buy it, or would you stick to the classic ordinary plastic cups?
If a Final Destination-esque death is in your bucket list, you might want to catch a ride on the "Euthanasia Coaster," which promises to kill people through a fatal combination of euphoria and extreme G-force. Of course that’s not in our wishlist, but you know, it never hurt to have a few options!
Sweep your lady off her feet this coming Valentine’s Day with the special Chinese New Year-edition Kit Kat, which has tea leaves, lychee, and rose petals. Oh, and it’s covered in edible 24-karat gold leaf!
