A new study published in Current Biology has pegged the entire output of giant sauropod dinosaurs at around 520 million tons of gas every year.
Video has emerged of a train in North Carolina ripping in half a tractor-trailer full of cotton.

A grandma dies six times in a new ad, but it's for a good cause. Or rather a good joke.
The ad, from agency Draftfcb in Buenos Aires, is one where you spend the first three quarters wondering what the hell is going on. When the punchline finally lands, you may not only laugh, but think a little as well. In other words, it’s pretty much everything you want in an ad.

NFL players have been known to post tweets insensitive to gay people. That tide seems to turning -- albeit slowly.

The first true "alien Earth" will likely be discovered in the next two years, a NASA scientist says.
Astronomers have found more than 750 alien planets to date, and NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope has flagged 2,300 additional “candidates” awaiting confirmation by follow-up studies. This haul has not yet included an Earth-like exoplanet — one that’s the size of our planet and orbits at the right distance from its star to support liquid water and, possibly, life as we know it.
Ruby on Rails. PHP. HTML. Bacon? Yup, pork belly just became an honorary member of the list of things you can use to make a website. The funniest part?

The U.S. government now suggests you create a social media will as part of estate planning.
By some estimates, nearly a half a million people with Facebook accounts passed away last year, leaving family and friends to navigate what to do with those pages. Leave the account open? Shut it down entirely? Convert it to an official Facebook memorial page? What would you want for your own Facebook profile? And forget Facebook, what do you want to become of your email account?
A Belgian advocacy group forced teens to text while driving. Here's what happened. The reverse psychology trick worked magic. As the video shows, young drivers get flustered and flummoxed trying to multitask behind the wheel. “It’s impossible,” one protests. “Honestly, I feel like an idiot who can’t drive,” says another.
What’s more exciting than James Cameron re-releasing “Titanic” in 3-D? When an even richer man – Australia ’s Clive Palmer – tries to bring the ill-fated ship to life. By building a modern replica of it.

For an event being hyped by organizers as the "first social media Olympics," the 2012 games in London have some pretty antisocial policies.
