Remember Remember the 21st of September

Demi Adejuyigbe is a television writer from shows ranging from The Late Late Show with James Corden to the Gilmore Girls Reboot. But his claim to fame has nothing to do with his credits. Back in 2016, he tweeted a dance on September 21st to the Earth Wind and Fire classic "September," which went viral on Twitter, and gathered nearly 400,000 views on YouTube. Fast forward to 2018, and the annual viral tradition gained 1 million views within a year. And now, we have the incredible sequel, which has reached over 1.2 million views in just 1 day

So you're John Mayer. You've dazzled and crooned to crowds the world over. You're about to play "Gravity," one of your most legendary hits. How do you make it special? How about playing with a fan's guitar. And that is exactly what Meyer did. At a recent concert he played, a fan passed a guitar to the front, hoping Mayer would play it. 

He immediately obliged, much to the appreciation of the crowd, and continues playing the entire song with his fan's guitar. Not only did he play a set with it, but he signed the guitar and tuned it for the fan as well.

The Next Mars Mission Is Going To Include a Space Helicopter

That is not a typo. NASA has been hard at work developing the technology for the next mission to Mars. Part of that are the modules that will be part of the rover. An autonomous helicopter would be able to take pictures never seen before, and reach areas that the rover on the ground, would take far longer to reach, and might not even be accessible.

This Woman Makes Hilarious Sh*tty Robots (8 GIFs)

We all know that there's high comedic value in fails. Especially when the things that are failing are not meant to fail... like robots. Simone Gietrz makes robots that have potential but were never really meant to succeed, and watching Simone "use" them will make you laugh harder than anything else you have seen today. Promise. You should probably just watch all of her hilarious videos on her YouTube channel. If you like to watch things exploding, check out NASA's test megarocket fuel tank exploding with liquid nitrogen. It's pretty cool.

Nothing to See Here, Just a Person Running Like an Anime Character Near Area 51

Well its finally here. The time has come to "Raid Area 51." With over 2 million "confirmed attending," even the town nearby had a $250,000 emergency contingency fund set up to deal with the influx of people with a population of 50 people. However, as usual, the nest laid plans of mice and men are doomed to fail. And in this case there was never any raid. 

The page was set up as a meme, and simply became so viral that it spiraled out of control. However that doesn't mean it's still just a desert wasteland. Over 3000 people arrived to the area near Area 51, and it has turned into a nerdy music festival, with a lot of tinfoil hats. But luckily, people like this guy in the background were still training for the day maybe they will invade Area 51.

This Newly Found Electric Eel Was a Shock For Scientists

For years, scientists knew little about the elusive and dangerous electric eels. Finding a home in the Amazon, these eels have been known as one species. But recently, scientists discovered they are not one, but three distinct species. In addition, a newly discovered species Electrophorus voltai, is shockingly powerful, with shocks measured at 860 volts, well over the previous record of 650. But why are these eels so special? And are they really "eels"? 

Scientists are shocked as they discovered the strongest electric eels yet, and whats more, it isn't one species, its three
