African Elephants Call Each Other By Unique Names, Groundbreaking Study Reveals

Based on an analysis of more than 400 elephant rumble recordings, researchers determined that elephants, much like humans, use specific, unique sounds to refer to one another.

African elephants are among the smartest animals on Earth. Now, a new study suggests they could be even more intelligent than most people realize. The study, published in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution, claims elephants do something few other wild animals do: call each other by their names.

These names come in th

Oregon Officials Won’t Blow Up Their Recently Beached Whale Carcass — And Repeat The Mistake They Made In 1970

When a dead whale washed ashore on an Oregon beach in late May, it called to mind an incident in 1970 when the state detonated a beached whale with dynamite. This time, however, the state parks department was adamant: "History isn't repeating itself."

When a dead whale washed up on the beaches of Florence, Oregon in November 1970, the state made the infamous decision to deal with it in a rather unconventional way: by blowing the whale up. Instead of blowing the remains out to sea, the explosion

2,700-Year-Old Cauldrons Found In Mongolia Were Used To Collect Blood, Possibly For Sausage Production

An analysis of two 2,700-year-old cauldrons revealed they were used to store animal blood — and possibly yak milk.

During multiple archaeological excavations across the Eurasian steppe over the years, researchers have come across several bronze cauldrons, the purpose of which remained unknown for quite some time. Now, new research suggests the cauldrons may have been used to collect animal blood — possibly for sausage production.

A Japanese Company Is Planning To Build A 'Space Elevator' — And Construction Could Begin As Early As 2025

Japan's Obayashi Corporation is making progress on their plan to build a massive elevator with a 22,000-mile tether that could send humans to the International Space Station in just two-and-a-half hours.

One of Japan’s top construction companies, the Obayashi Corporation, announced recently that it has begun testing carbon nanotubes, which could, in theory, allow them to construct a massive elevator extending out into space.

This “space elevator” would propel humans out of the Earth’s atmosphe

During a metal detecting rally in Dorset, a 60-year-old amateur metal detectorist by the name of John Belgrove got lost and separated from the rest of the group. As fortune would have it, though, Belgrove’s unexpected detour led him to the “find of a lifetime.”

Belgrove was heading toward high ground when his device suddenly activated, prompting hi

77 Colorized Photos Of The 1920s That Bring The Roaring Twenties To Life

From flappers to gangsters, see the Roaring Twenties in breathtaking color.

The 1920s were a strange, fascinating time in Western culture. Also known as the Roaring Twenties or the Jazz Age, it was a time of new technology, more freedom for women, musical innovation, and excess. At the same time, there was a nationwide ban against alcohol in America, an increase in organized crime as a result, and a bit of ironic hindsight, given that the Great Depression followed this extravagant golden age.

The Chilling Story Of Lake Lanier, The Georgia Reservoir That Has Claimed 700 Lives In The Past 70 Years

Since Lake Lanier was created in 1956, an estimated 700 victims have died in its waters — and some people even believe this reservoir is cursed.

Since its construction in 1956, there have been an estimated 700 deaths at Lake Lanier. More than 200 of those have occurred since 1994, and that number only continues to rise. These Lake Lanier deaths have led to speculation that the reservoir may be haunted or cursed.

This 19th-Century Royal Tomb In West Africa Was Built Using The Blood Of Human Sacrifice Victims

It was long rumored that a tomb built on the orders of the infamous King Ghezo was constructed using the blood of human sacrifice victims. Now, a new study suggests this legend is likely true.

From 1818 to 1858, the infamously bloodthirsty King Ghezo ruled the kingdom of Dahomey in West Africa from his palace in the city of Abomey. While the kingdom eventually fell to French colonization near the end of the 19th century, hints of Ghezo’s carnage still remain to this day.

Modern Soldiers Put 3,500-Year-Old Bronze Age Armor To The Test To See If It Would’ve Protected Ancient Greeks In Combat — And It Passed

The Dendra armor, used by ancient Mycenaeans, proved to be incredibly effective in combat, if not a bit cumbersome to wear for long periods.

Would ancient armor really have protected its wearers? That’s the question a team of researchers set out to answer recently by recreating a Greek suit of armor from the Bronze Age — and their answer was “yes.”

In a new study published in the journal PLOS ONE, a team of researchers ran a combat simulation using a replica of ancient Mycenaean armor to see h

North Korea Is Sending Balloons Carrying Excrement And Propaganda Into South Korea

North Korea has sent more than 260 balloons carrying bags of waste and trash into South Korea after South Korean activists recently sent their own propaganda-filled balloons over the border.

It’s easy to forget that, technically, North and South Korea are still at war. The Korean War only lasted from 1950 to 1953, but a peace treaty was never officially signed. For more than 70 years, the war has been at a standstill, with tensions between the two countries as high as ever.

Muppets Creator Jim Henson Thought He Had A Simple Cold — Just Days Later, He Was Dead At 53

Jim Henson was just 53 years old when he died on May 16, 1990, just days after coming down with a severe bacterial infection.

The Teenage Son Of A Wealthy Indian Businessman Killed Two People While Driving His Porsche Drunk — And His Punishment Was A 300-Word Essay

Outrage has grown across India as many have viewed the teen's punishment as too lenient, with family members of the victims calling for the cancellation of his bail.

After a 17-year-old Indian teenager allegedly killed two people while driving his Porsche drunk and ramming it into a motorcycle, the court granted him bail on a single condition: that he “write an essay” about the incident.

The only other punishment for this alleged double homicide was alcohol treatment, counseling sessions, and

The Inside Story Of Kurt Cobain's Mother And How Their Relationship Shaped His Life And Music

Kurt Cobain’s mother Wendy said she and her son were so close that they were "like twins" — and when he went just a few days without calling her during one stretch in early 1994, she correctly suspected it was because he had finally taken his own life.

Prehistoric Tools Found In Maryland Suggest Humans Came To America 7,000 Years Earlier Than Previously Thought

Geologist Darrin Lowery published his findings from Parsons Island in a 260-page manuscript online, which has drawn criticism from academics who would have preferred Lowery publish in a peer-reviewed journal.

For years, scientists have hotly debated when, exactly, humans first arrived in the Americas. But now, a scientist affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution believes he has uncovered evidence in Maryland that could set the record straight, once and for all.
