Untouched 1970s House

It's impossible to travel back in time to the 1970s, or at least that we know of, but visiting this home - located in Framingham, Massachusetts - just might be the next best thing. Currently on the market for $624,900, this time capsule spans 4,133-square-feet, complete with 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a swimming pool. "The original owner built the house and customized it and did all the decor in the early '70s. The most recent owners also appreciated the decor and lived in the house for more than 20 years without changing any parts of the quirky and multicolored interiors," said realtor Matthew Cuddy.

Gallium Soda Can

Gallium, a lesser common element, doesn't sound or look all that exciting, but this liquid metal does have a few tricks up its quickly melting sleeve. At room temperature, it melts in your hand, and can even be used to make a gag spoon. However, when placed on a typical soda can, it quickly turns to mush because the aluminum on amalgamates with the Gallium. Get some here now.

NASA Jupiter Sounds

NASA has managed to capture a "voiceprint" of what Jupiter's auroras would sound like following Juno's maiden voyage around the giant gas planet. During this flyby, the spacecraft's waves instrument received radio signals associated with the giant planet's intense auroras. "The signals have been shifted into the audio frequency range and are displayed in a format similar to a voiceprint, showing intensity of waves as a function of frequency and time," reports the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Click here for a few bonus images of Jupiter's auroras. Continue reading for another video of what Jupiter sounds like, recording during an earlier mission.

Many places have banned selfie sticks, but YouTube user Buddy Bolton took things into his own hands and clipped selfie sticks all over New York City with a hedge trimmer. So far, the dislikes far outnumber the likes on the video, and rightfully so. There's some speculation that everything is staged, with each person featured being paid a set amount, and hopefully without a cracked display, or worse, a broken device. Continue reading for a video showing how to make your own selfie stick at home in case something like this happens.

SpaceX's Falcon 9 exploded into flames at the Cape Canaveral launch pad during a routine check earlier this week, carrying a $200-million Facebook satellite, and while Elon Musk said it was an issue with the upper stage oxygen tank, nothing has been confirmed. However, conspiracy theorists are carefully examining the footage, and claim that the rocket could possibly have been hit by a UFO. "I am pretty sure this is not the first time they hit us. I saw another rocket in flight (right after lift off), being destroyed by a saucer. I guess these rockets look too much like ICBMs with a big fat bomb attached to the tip! The Aliens are trying to put an end to nuclear missiles and war," said YouTube user "UFO Hunter". Continue reading for the shortened launch video.

Hedgehog Cafe Japan

Situated in the lively Roppongi entertainment district, "Harry" is a real-life hedgehog cafe that charges $9 for an hour with the prickly yet lovable creatures. It's home to 20-30 different breeds of hedgehogs, while a chalk-written blackboard lists the ones you can actually buy. "We wanted to show people the charm of hedgehogs, which give the impression of being hard to handle. We wanted to get rid of that image by letting people touch them," said staff member Mizuki Murata. Continue reading for three more bizarre places that actually exist from around the world.

Dog Bigfoot

In North American folklore, Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. Over the years, there have been many alleged sightings, but could this dog have captured a glimpse of the real thing? In this short GoPro video, you see a creature walking through the grassy woods that stands up on two legs like a human, but also appearing to be hairy and ape-like. Individuals claiming to have seen Bigfoot described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla, with a strong, unpleasant smell.

Pink Lagoon

The color pink isn't synonymous with lagoons, but this one, located in the fishing village of Las Coloradas on the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, most certainly is. While it may look Photoshopped, the color comes from both red plankton and the high quantity of brine shrimp in the water - chemicals from the aquatic life seep into the water.

If you demand nothing but the fastest and most expensive limousine currently on the market, look no further than this custom stretch Bugatti Veyron. Aside from this blurry image taken while someone was driving, there is no further information on just what went into creating this ride, but with that said, anything is possible, even it being a kit car - custom fabricated body panels placed on another car rather than using a real Veyron.
