Yeah! It’s time again for the world’s greatest and most time-wasting link dump in the world as voted on by the world. As always, we’re brought to you by Dave & Buster’s—come drink heavily and get awkwardly competitive on children’s games at Dave & Buster’s!

On to the links…


Juicing is a great way to get a healthy and easy serving of your favorite fruits and veggies. What if you want to get more of a hearty juice, maybe try juicing some McDonald’s hamburgers like these guys did. (Via Sploid)

Obligatory Space Posts of the Week….

Hey, did you know about the Goldilocks Zone? It’s the boundary around a star in which a planet could have the right factors to be habitable by life. There’s a lot of planets like this, something like 1 billion or something (you look it up, I’m busy). Well, one of those is an incredibly rocky planet called Kepler-62f that lives in the Lyra constellation about 1,200 light-years away from Earth.

If you’re reading this on the day it comes out—June 17, 2016—you can watch three NASA astronauts exit the International Space Station on a live stream, which resides in space, if you weren’t aware. The journey from the ISS back to Earth takes about 7 hours, which is a long time to travel after they push you out of the space station. I assume that’s how it works—they open a hatch and then kick you out, 300-style, and then you freefall back to Earth. I don’t know how science works.


And finally…

After the success of the New Horizon mission to Pluto last year, it’s time we turn our attention to another planetary orbit mission: The Juno mission to Jupiter. Juno is heading to gas giant Jupiter and will touch down on July 4th this year. That’s the most American thing ever and I can’t wait.
