Here’s What Kind of Tacos Astronauts Eat in Space

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly shared his special Cinco de Mayo treat from the International Space Station

Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo with some delicious tacos today? Well, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly is doing the very same thing aboard the International Space Station. Well, he’s indulging in tacos. But we can’t say they look particularly delicious.

Kelly tweeted a photo of his special space taco, which consists of rehydrated eggs, sausage and hot sauce on a tortilla. Behold:

It doesn’t look great, but it’s important to remember that astronauts can’t exactly cook the way we do on Earth. As Mashable points out, astronauts on the International Space Station can rehydrate pre-made food by adding water. There is an oven on the station, but most of the food supply comes in dehydrated form.

Still, though: space tacos! Space tacos.

Watch a 5-Year-Old Kid Help His Dad Propose In the Cutest Way

It happens on top of a mountain, over pancakes

Some people plan elaborate marriage proposals involving everything from John Stamos to pugs. But when this guy wanted to ask his girlfriend to marry him, he went a different route. He enlisted the help of his 5-year-old son.

It all goes down on top of a beautiful mountain while the three of them are eating pancakes. The young boy offers the woman a wrapped gift, which ends up being a Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica with a ring dangling from it. (The video is in Norwegian, but YouTube has subtitles.)

The woman is completely blindsided, and the kid has to ask a few times, “Do you want to marry my dad?” The best part is that while she says yes and runs over to embrace her fiancé, the kid is still struggling to get the ring off his toy.

If anyone is thinking about proposing and wants to follow this guy’s lead, here’s a handy guide on how to use children to propose.

Here’s How You Should Really Be Cutting Your Vegetables

All about efficiency

Next time you need to chop up a bunch of vegetables, we recommend trying this handy tip from Household Hacker. The trick is using a pizza cutter to slice up vegetables like carrots and celery. After a little practice, you’ll cut your prep time in half.

We’re not saying you should always use a pizza cutter instead of a good old-fashioned knife. But as the video shows, a pizza cutter can be your best bet for quickly prepping a veggie platter.

The video also comes with a bonus tip for cutting cherry tomatoes. Enjoy.

This Time-Lapse Video Shows How Much Photoshop Is Used in High Fashion Photography

See six hours of retouching in just 90 seconds

Rare Digital Art, a New York City-based retouching company, created a series of videos showing how much work (and time) can go into Photoshopping a fashion campaign.

In the above video, you’ll see the company’s head retoucher, Elizabeth Moss, spending six hours smoothing, shaping, and contouring a woman’s skin, nails, lips and more. (You can see the other videos in the series here and here.)

“With all the talk about photoshop use or overuse, I thought it would be interesting for people to see how we actually add pores to skin (we do this in the 2nd and 3rd videos, sampled from the girl in the first video),” Moss told PetaPixel.

Here’s Hugh Jackman Enthusiastically Lip Syncing the ‘Bacon Pancakes’ Song From Adventure Time

With absolutely zero context

Good morning….

A video posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on

If you’re anything like us, you once followed Hugh Jackman on Instagram to see photos of his precious dogs, but then unfollowed him because he wasn’t actually posting enough photos of said dogs. (Hugh, if you’re reading this, please share more photos of your dogs.)

One recent video, however, has us considering pressing that “follow” button again. It’s Jackman lip syncing the “Bacon Pancakes” song from Adventure Time with absolutely no context. It’s a pretty great mood-lifter.

Jackman has never lent his voice to the popular cartoon, but maybe he’ll make an appearance in an upcoming season.

They continue to prove they're the ultimate besties

We already knew that Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran were best buds (remember that time Taylor made Ed a Drake-themed needlepoint?) But now, we get a direct glimpse into their friendship thanks to a recent Instagram from Tay-Tay. She shared a screenshot of a late-night texting session with Sheeran:

This Stunning Drone Footage Will Convince You Antarctica’s the Most Gorgeous Place on Earth

Precious few people ever get the chance to visit Antarctica, so allow this stunning eight-minute video to provide you with a rare glimpse of the remote region.

Swedish filmmaker Kalle Ljung and his crew shot this drone footage during a 20-day trip to Antarctica this past December/January. “We started from Ushuaia in Argentina and went to Port Williams in Chile, rounded Cape Horn and crossed the Drake Passage towards the Melchior Islands in Antarctica,” Ljung explains in the video description.

The resulting video is a breathtaking look at the region’s natural beauty. It captures an overwhelming feeling of isolation and stillness — but also captures some rare moments full of life, like a gently moving fishing boat and a family of whales.

We recommend watching this video in full-screen mode, and with the volume turned up, because it also features some very soothing music.

Here’s How Long It Will Take to Binge Watch the Internet’s Favorite TV Shows

From Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to Pretty Little Liars, these are the most talked-about shows on Twitter

Looking for some new shows to watch now that Broad City is over and you’ve already cycled through Friends on Netflix? Nielsen has created this handy infographic that calculates how long it will take you to binge watch some of television’s most popular shows, so you can plan accordingly.

The ratings service has created similar binging guides in the past, but this one uses social media data to pinpoint television that people have been tweeting about the most. So this way, you can plan to watch the shows other people are talking about — and then rapidly binge them so you can join the conversation.


As you can see, you’ll be able to get through some shows, like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, in one day if you apply yourself. But others will take a whole other level of commitment.

Watch Hoda Kotb’s Extremely Enthusiastic ‘Baby Got Back’ Lip Sync

Also enjoy Michael Strahan performing Fergie's 'London Bridge'

In the latest episode of Lip Sync Battle, it was a battle of daytime TV hosts.

First up, Today Show host Hoda Kotb performed a rousing rendition of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” She really committed, and included plenty of booty-centric dancing in her performance. Next, former NFL player and Live! With Kelly and Michael co-host Michael Strahan took the stage to perform Fergie’s “London Bridge.” He clearly didn’t want to let Hoda one-up him, so he also showed off some suggestive dance moves. And a lot of hip gyrations.

As always, enjoy LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen swaying along in the background.
