Fortunately winter appears to finally be behind us, so we can now enjoy Jason Paul’s icy parkour video without thinking about having to scrape frost off our car windows. The clip was shot at Harbin, China, which turns into a frozen winterland once a year.

You may think you know the Guardians of the Galaxy, but if your only point of reference is the movies, you’ll be surprised to find out that Star-Lord, Rocket, Gamora, Drax, and Groot didn’t even appear in the earliest issues of the comics. The Know fills us in on their origins.
We delve deeper into the secret operations of Kingsmen, as Eggsy and company must team up with their new gun-totin’ US allies, Statesman to defeat another enemy hellbent on world destruction. Hopefully this bad guy won’t have Samuel L. Jackson’s ridiculith lithp.

Another variant on those desk toy for fidgeters. This 12-sided model is kind of like D12 on steroids, with each of its sides featuring a different clicky, spinny, or jiggly sensation to keep your fingers occupied. For some reason, we’re also reminded of the Plumbus.
While putting the finishing touches on his album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… last year, Dwight Yoakam learned the news of Prince’s death. He decided then and there to add another track in tribute to the artist, a twangy, bluegrass version of one of his most beloved tracks.
After six months of work, builder Ben Tardif is close to putting the finishing touches on his latest marble machine – a miniature version of a miniature golf course. The video goes into quite some depth about the build, but if you just want to see it in action, you can skip to 15:20.
A remote-controlled underwater drone which allows you to capture full HD video (4K model also available) and 16 MP stills using its waterproof camera and LED lighting. It comes with a 30m (~98 ft.) tether, but can be upgraded to operate at depths up to 100m (~328 ft.).
