…maybe you consider The Avengers movie absurd. But if you actually considered just how absurd it could be (and you can, thanks to these brilliant infographics that put the entire cast of characters into an objective perspective)—we’re talking ant rodeos, people!—you’ll likely gain a new appreciation for why The Avengers film has Scarlett Johansson stand in the middle of a firefight with two tiny pistols for 20 minutes: Because one of the world’s most beautiful women fighting off aliens from another galaxy with karate chops and water guns alone is actually the most relatable, grounded moment in Avengers franchise history.

I want to see the avenger that rides ants in the next film adaptation!

Scientists at MIT have developed this freaky non-stick coating that keeps ketchup flowing. Amazing solution to an old problem. Also one of the weirdest videos you will see this week.

I can see it now… Aw SHIT! I put too much ketchup on my burger. I think part of the lack of waste in ketchup can be attested to the fact that many people just give up when they cant get anymore out.

Jack Andraka (center), a 15-year-old student from Maryland, came up with a paper sensor that detects pancreatic cancer 168 times faster than current tests. It’s also 90% accurate, 400 times more sensitive, and 26,000 times less expensive than today’s methods. In short: It’s a lot better.
Andraka was inspired to focus on pancreatic cancer because a friend’s brother was killed by the disease. “I became interested in early detection, did a ton of research, and came up with this idea,” he says.
