Share With Your Friends Nanotech tea bag creates safe drinking water instantly, for less than a penny @LittleDragon: Those devices you mentioned exist, and unless I'm mistaken, they work most of the time. However, they cost more thana penny each, and that's kind of the problem when dealing with Africa and other impoverished regions. @DrForbidden: But the machine that cleaned the water could be used by the entire village and was good for more then one use. I am aware of the money issue. All I am saying is that I have seen this clean water promise several times before and it never goes any where. @LittleDragon: I see your point. Hopefully, these teabags will be fully tested and available for sale by next year. @DrForbidden: I hope they are.

The 100 Best “B Movies” of All Time :: Movies Not every film can be the Citizen Kane of its day. For every high-budget “A movie” that commands significant promotion and funding from its studio, there are piles of B movies that scratch and claw their way into existence without the benefit of things like “a budget” or “a script” in some cases. To compare them with A movies in terms of resources and immersiveness isn’t a fair proposition. Instead, discerning film fans are able to simply appreciate them for what they are. But what does “best” mean when we’re talking about films often famous for their shoddy construction? It certainly doesn’t mean “best-made.” Whenever possible, I tried to keep the list to more obscure titles. 100. The Giant Claw is not the most captivating of the classic 1950s “giant monster running amok” movies, but it must be seen exclusively for the fact that it features the goofiest-looking movie monster of all time. 99. 98. 97. 96. 95. File this one into the “before they were famous” category. 94. 93. 92. 91. 89.

Luna App Will Deliver Your Packages When You're Actually Home The idea for Zack Shapiro's late-night delivery service struck him like a 50-pound kettlebell. Seriously. “I was working long hours at a startup in San Francisco and I ordered a 50-pound kettlebell,” he told The Huffington Post. “I had it shipped to my apartment and kept getting missed slips because I was at work all day, so I finally just shipped it to work. Once it arrived, I had to lug it back to my desk where it sat for a few days.” Finally, Shapiro hired a car service to take him and the kettlebell home. “I started thinking about it and realized there was a real hole in the market,” he said. After learning to code, Shapiro and his cofounder, Beamer Wilkins (who earlier developed music management software used by Rihanna), turned the idea into reality. Shapiro and Wilkins' new app, Luna - Moonlit Deliveries, allows users to schedule package deliveries between the hours of 7 p.m. and midnight. Users receive text message updates and deliveries as close to the requested time as possible.

Translating Grandma's Recipes Into a Cookbook Honoring family tradition during the holidays usually starts with recreating the recipes everyone loves. For most of us, that means navigating the shorthand of generations ago, inked on greasy scraps of paper or retold over the stovetop in a language that seems to defy translation: a pinch of this, a tad of that. In the end, we reminisce over empty plates about Great Grandma's pecan pie, a polite acknowledgement by the family that, nope, you didn't quite nail it. This year, put an end to the guessing game. How slick your end product looks is up to you.

25 Great Psychological Thrillers That Are Worth Your Time Described as a story which emphasizes the psychology of its characters and their unstable emotional states, the following films are benchmarks for what a successful psychological thriller should aspire to be. Instead of displaying legions of gore and violence, their main objective is to play with your mind. To leave it up to you to construct the tension of what you have just witnessed. As the great perplexer David Lynch once said: “when you are spoon-fed a film, more people instantly know what it is. 25. Das Experiment is a 2001 German thriller from director Oliver Hirschbiegel, starring Moritz Bleibtreu as Tarek Fahd, or later only to be known as Prisoner 77. Tarek reads a newspaper advert regarding a social experiment in a simulated prison. Monitored and observed by scientists, the trial takes a plummet into the dark depths of human behaviour. A gruelling yet compelling watch, what makes Das Experiment even more powerful, is the fact that it is based on actual events. 24. 23. 22. 21.

The 10 Differences Between Those Who Appreciate Life And Those Who Don't We’re all living creatures: things that lucked out and were blessed with life. The chances of the particles that make you up forming the person that you are today are so minute that it’s nearly a miracle that you exist. Mathematically speaking, you shouldn’t exist. You shouldn’t be alive. Yet, there will always be a lottery winner. And what exactly is it that you are doing with your winnings? Unfortunately, by then, it’s usually too late. There are those, however, that do appreciate life. 1. To hate your job is to hate the time you spend doing that job. That doesn’t mean, however, that we should agree to spend 40 hours a week of our time for several years doing something we have to convince ourselves makes sense doing each and every morning that we wake up. 2. We meet people. This isn’t to say they are necessarily bad people – although that may very well be the case – but they clearly aren’t good additions to your life. 3. Falling for the wrong person happens. 4. Life, love and goodness.
