Warning: Spoilers ahead for Episode 2 of The Walking Dead season 5.
Look, The Walking Dead is a gross show. A wonderful, action-packed, disgusting show that has trained us to have stomaches of steel. But the end of episode 2 easily ranks among the greats in the Horrific Hall of Fame. Congrats, moment henceforth known to as the #BobBQ Scene.
As the hilariously inappropriate hashtag implies, poor Bob was captured and diced up by the cannibals in the final minutes of this otherwise subdued episode
Notice that the word "killed" was not included in that sequence of events. That's because Bob, who was whacked over the head while having a cry in the woods, was not killed before the cannibals was not killed before his left was sliced off and cooked it up presumable using Gareth's original recipe of 11 herbs and spices Read more...More about Television, Entertainment, Tv, The Walking Dead, and Recaps
While being compared to a pet may seem like an insult, it's actually somewhat of a confirmed phenomenon. We perceive animals and their owners to look like each other
Of course, if the resemblance is too similar, things start to get eerie. Really eerie.
Poorly Drawn Lines explores that side of the spectrum in the comic, below:

It's no secret that Alicia Florrick is one of the most complex, interesting female characters on television. But Alicia isn't the token interesting female character on The Good Wife, she's one of many compelling female characters the show has to offer. This week's episode found the women of The Good Wife sometimes on opposing sides, but the conflict they faced only served for a richer showdown between these incredible women
"Shiny Objects" did not try to be subtle about its messages. Alicia and her often-ally Elsbeth, both extremely formidable women, faced off in court in a case about sexism. Peter and Alicia stood side-by-side onstage, cameras flashing, in a tableau that mirrored the press conference that opened the entire show. But the transparency of this episode didn't detract from it Read more...More about Television, Recap, Entertainment, Tv, and The Good Wife
SYDNEY — One entrepreneur from Melbourne is putting his health on the line for the love of his new app.
Chris Koch ate a device inside a tablet at 12 p.m. local time on Monday as part of a competition to promote his business, Pop!, to prove you can keep track of your data anywhere. Even inside his stomach
Interactive software company Snepo are behind the tablet, which houses a system on a chip (SOC) by RFdigital that includes a Bluetooth low energy component and a processor. Snepo's founder Ben Moir told Mashable the company added 32MB of memory and additional electronics to extend its battery life. The pill-like device uses an Arduino controller and is encased in polyurethane, a material that is sometimes used to make feeding tubes and other medical products, but is not affected by stomach acid.

Romance was in the air on Once Upon a Time Sunday night, but per usual, there was magic and darkness lurking close behind it.
Emma and Hook went on their first official date and though Hook (or "Killian" as he asks Emma to call him) finally was able to get his hand back from Rumplestiltskin, it came with a price. We got a few bloody good threats from the Dark One in the past, present and future. And as suggested by the title of the episode ("The Apprentice") there was more Fantasia than Frozen in the episode, complete with a teeny tiny mouse.
But we'll get to that.Hook, Line and Sinker
First, after Emma asks Hook out on a proper date, he decides he needs to get rid of his metal body part. He uses his same blackmailing technique to get his hand back from Mr. Gold — who creepily has it preserved in a jar — even though Gold warns him it will come with a price. He claims that since his hand "belonged to the cunning, selfish pirate" Hook used to be, it may bring out the worst in him. Unfortunately for Hook, it's not just a threat — his hand compels him to start two fights. Read more...More about Television, Entertainment, Tv, Once Upon A Time, and Recaps
SYDNEY — A surfer in South Avalon, on Sydney's Northern Beaches, took prime position to check out the swell last Thursday.
In an impressive feat, local lad Lachie Rombouts climbed 40 metres up the Norfolk Island Pine tree to do his daily surf check
Photographer Rita Kluge was grabbing a coffee when she saw the incredible sight and took a snap.
"I was shooting photos for Coastalwatch.com and spotted him while having coffee on South Avalon headland," Kluge told Mashable. "I was stunned by the height of that pine tree and how relaxed he was standing on it. He is an amazing surfer, so must have great balance from it."

Ohio State University's marching band is known for its complicated routines that are just as much about what you see on the field as what you hear.
During Saturday's matchup against Rutgers University, the OSU's Buckeyes played some of classic rock's biggest hits. Fans were treated to The Who's "Pinball Wizard," while the band formed a pinball machine, as well as The Edger Winter Group's "Frankenstein" complete with a shambling monster, among other vintage hits
The marching band finished its set by recreating a stick figure smashing a guitar to the tune of Kiss' "Rock and Roll All Nite." Read more...More about Videos, Watercooler, Marching Band, and Ohio State University
In the midst of the job search, it feels like you’ve been waiting forever to get a call back from your recruiter. After you finally get the nerve to call, you hear, "We’ll keep your resume on file." Does that mean the recruiter will call you as soon as a position opens up? Or is he just being nice?
There’s a communication problem between job seekers and recruiters that often leaves both parties confused and frustrated. Optimistic job seekers are up for trying anything, but recruiters don’t want to be rude to unqualified applicants.Recruiting, Job Search Series, Business, Jobs, and Mashable Careers
For Järn Harry, his BlackBerry Z10 has one killer feature that iPhones and Androids just can't match: a blinking red light.
"I look at the iPhone, and I don't know if there's a message or not," Harry says. As the head of new business ventures for Comptel, a Helsinki-based software firm, Harry finds BlackBarry unmatched for running business apps. He is also a fan of BlackBerry 10's Hub, which centralizes his messages. Harry also owns an iPhone 6, which he likes, but hates the HTC One
"For my use, it's perfect," he says of the Z10. "It's tailored for business use."Blackberry and Business
Australian teenager Kirra-Belle Olsson posted photos on Facebook of the injuries she sustained in a shark attack on Friday, as she made it clear it was not the shark's fault.
The 13-year-old Rip Curl-sponsored surfer was bitten on the leg by a wobbegong shark while surfing at Avoca Beach, on the central coast of New South Wales. She was about 10 to 15 metres from shore when she said she "dropped in on" the shark, meaning she caught the shark's wave.

"I took the wave and then I twice felt something grab my foot, and I thought it was a mate behind me trying to scare me," Olsson told ABC News. "Then the third time it (the shark) swung me around and tried to pull me under." Read more...More about Australia, Us World, Shark, Shark Attack, and Avoca Beach
This recap contains spoilers for the most recent episode of Doctor Who, "Flatline." Don't say we didn't warn you.
The Doctor is a hard man to understand. We mere mortals find it difficult to grasp when he gets giddy over things he hasn't encountered before –- because 9 times out of 10, that thing is probably trying to kill everyone
In the last episode, "Mummy on the Orient Express," the Doctor found himself face to face with an ancient fallen soldier who was killing guests on the train in order to gain their life energy.
Clara was upset about the Doctor’s willingness to deal in acceptable losses — a problem she has been grappling with nearly all season. But when you're in the Doctor’s shoes, it’s a lot harder to criticize.

KIEV, Ukraine – Germany’s federal intelligence service has concluded that pro-Russian rebels shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 using a missile system captured from a Ukrainian military base, the German news magazine Spiegel reported on Sunday
The findings of the intelligence service, known as BND, contradict claims by Kiev and the West that the rebels fired on the passenger jet using an advanced surface-to-air “Buk” missile system provided to them by Russia.
Moscow has denied the charge and said that Ukrainian fighter jets shadowing the Malaysian jetliner fired on the plane with wing-mounted guns, or that a missile from a system controlled by Ukrainian forces shot it down.
But the head of BND, Gerhard Schindler, said Russia’s claims that the missile was fired by Ukrainian troops and that Ukrainian warplanes were flying near the airliner were false, according to Spiegel.
Schindler said the agency’s findings suggest a missile from a Buk system that rebels captured from a Ukrainian base exploded directly next to the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, causing it to break into pieces over eastern Ukraine and fall over several villages near the city of Torez on July 17, Read more...
The person with Europe's first confirmed case of Ebola is on the mend.
Teresa Romero, the Spanish nurse that contracted Ebola, has tested negative for the virus, authorities said Sunday. Further tests will be necessary to determine whether Romero is indeed cured, but the news is another positive sign after she responded well to treatment.
Romero, 44, caught the virus two weeks ago while treating Spanish missionaries who had been working in West Africa. The nurse said she made a mistake in removing her protective suit, and touching her face with gloves still on, which could have caused her to contract Ebola.

NEW YORK, New York — On a hot Friday afternoon, a herd of customers flank both sides of the food cart, waiting on their South Indian fare. The phone rings loudly with takeout orders. Yet New York food vendor Thiru Kumar calmly shuffles between tasks, giving everyone due attention.
Better known as the Dosa Man, Kumar opened his tiny world-renowned cart, NY Dosas (a dosa is a South Indian crepe), in 2001. Soon he amassed a cult following; local and international patrons visit year-round to buy his inexpensive and flavorful street eats. His accolades are many: Listed in 42 countries’ guidebooks, his was the first vegan dosa cart in the world. He has fan clubs in California and Japan.

There's just something about a well-executed trick play. When it goes wrong, it's a disaster. When done right, it's beautiful.
The St. Louis Rams tricked just about everybody during a punt play at Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Nearly the entire Rams team feigned the punt going one way, drawing practically every Seahawk to the wrong side of the field.
By the time everyone — including the cameraperson — realized that the ball had actually gone to the other side of the field, the Rams were well on their way to a third touchdown. Read more...More about Football, Nfl, Entertainment, and Sports
Four-legged friends helped close a cultural gap in Malaysia during a unique event that invited Muslims to pet dogs — some for the very first time.
The "I Want to Touch a Dog" event, held in Central Park in Petaling Jaya, attempted to dispel myths about canine cleanliness. Some Muslims believe dog fur and saliva is unclean, and prefer not to keep them inside their homes.
As a result, some may be afraid of the animals, event organizer Syed Azmi Alhabshi told Asia One.
"This is just a baby step for us. I don't know whether people will now understand not to throw stones at dogs, but we want people to know that if they are not knowledgeable or are curious about things, they should just ask. If we ask nicely, people will respond," he said. Read more...More about Dogs, Us World, World, Conversations, and Malaysia
WASHINGTON — Revised guidance for health care workers treating Ebola patients will include using protective gear "with no skin showing," a top federal health official said Sunday.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said those caring for an Ebola patient in Dallas were left vulnerable because some of their skin was exposed.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is working on revisions to safety protocols. Earlier ones, he said, were based on a World Health Organization model in which care was given in more remote places, often outdoors, and without intensive training for health workers Read more...More about Us World, Us, and Ebola
A comet zoomed past Mars in a rare celestial event Sunday afternoon.
The event was live streamed by Slooh, an organization that connects powerful telescopes to the Internet. The viewing started at 2:15 p.m. ET, and the actual passing occurred around 2:27 p.m. ET.
The Virtual Telescope Project also live streamed the comet's passing, below:
