Nothing seems to spark debate quicker than some asinine thing on the Internet and “The Dress” was probably the best example of that. Going so far as to even get Scientific research done on it to come to the conclusion that The Dress was in fact…wait for it…Blue and Black.
Although,like with any kind of scientific decision, there are people to this day who still think The Dress is White and Gold,but those people are wrong, that’s right John there are Scientists who have proven through Neurosciences and Vision Science that The Dress is actually Black and Blue it’s been a whole year just accept the fact that you’re wrong.
In the age of the internet and video game modding, it’s crazy to think that ANYTHING can be kept a secret anymore.
The internet is full of hundreds of youtubers and bloggers that are dedicated to revealing the deepest, darkest secrets of our favorite video games.
However, it looks like they missed one on the original Mortal Kombat arcade game.
Youtuber YourMKArcadeSource was able to uncover a secret set of menus dubbed the “EJB Menus” after one of the game’s creators Ed Boon.
What exactly can you do on these secret menus? Not much…but it’s still awesome to know that there are still secrets left to be found after all these years.

The FBI has issued a court ordered request to Apple to design an entirely new operating system for iPhones.
The reason? So that the FBI can bypass the phone’s encryption and access user data. (In this case, the FBI is after data on the phone of one of the terrorist involved in last December’s shooting in San Bernardino, CA.)
The order has produced reactions on both sides from iPhone users to politicians but Apple CEO Tim Cook released an official statement saying Apple will NOT comply with the FBI’s request

Season 6 of HBO’s Mega-hit series Game of Thrones is still weeks away but the first official teaser trailer hit the internet this past weekend.
The trailer, which takes place inside the “Hall of Faces” (An eerie and powerful location introduced in season 5), shows the faces of popular characters that have already met their demise in seasons past.
Other than that the trailer is intentionally mysterious and vague which leaves us with a TON of questions.
Will we see these familiar faces used in Season 6? Will Tyrion actually be added to the collection? And WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH JON!?!?
Either way, we’re stoked for the new season…now if only we could fast forward to April…
Check out the trailer below:
The Matt Forte era is officially over in Chicago.
The news broke this morning that the Bears would not be offering Forte a new contract for the 2016 season and shortly after, Forte posted a heartfelt goodbye on his Instagram.
Forte was the Bears’ 2nd round draft pick in 2008 and has played for the Bears his entire career.
Check out Forte’s Goodbye post below:
Despite my wishes, my days as a member of the Chicago Bears have sadly come to an end. I was informed earlier this week from the GM that they will not be attempting to re-sign me in free agency. I will remain forever grateful for my time spent in Chicago and being able to play for an organization with such a rich history. My only regret is not being able to win a Lombardi trophy for the best fans in all of sports. I’m excited about the next chapter of my NFL career. But, Chicago will always be home. God Bless and Bear Down!
