VIDEO: Man attempts to slice watermelon with sword, utterly fails
Watch what happens when this guy tries to cut a watermelon with a huge sword. It didn't quite turn out the way he planned. A man named Ali attempts to slice a watermelon that is sitting on a glass patio table using a sword that looks like it belongs to a samurai warrior. When he strikes the watermelon, the force of the blow shatters the glass table instead of dicing the watermelon. Everyone seemed to get a good laugh from it, but we're sure this wasn't one of Ali's brightest ideas.

The drug doc 'Cartel Land' is more than just handsome
‘Cartel Land’ Director: Matthew Heineman Genre: Documentary Rating: NR 3 (out of 5) Globes The militiaman survey “Cartel Land” won both director and cinematography awards at this year’s Sundance, and far as docs go it is atypically handsome. At this point cameras are state of the art enough to offer both hi-def visuals and hyper-mobility, qualities director Matthew Heineman takes for granted as he scampers through real-shoot-outs that look like outtakes from a movie by Kathryn Bigelow — as it...
'Rebels of the Neon God' is a master filmmaker's unique debut
‘Rebels of the Neon God’ Director: Tsai Ming-liang Stars: Lee Kang-sheng, Miao Tien Rating: NR 4 (out of 5) Globes The legendary Taiwanese minimalist filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang didn’t emerge fully formed, but with 1992’s “Rebels of the Neon God” he came close. That’s remarkable as is. Over the years and the films — including 1998’s “The Hole,” 2000’s “What Times is it There?” and last year’s “Stray Dogs” — he’s established one of the most recognizable voices in cinema. He does the long take...

Money equals power. Money equals laziness. It’s human nature to relax a tad once you finally get security at your job or land a new, fat contract. And statistics in pro sports almost always back up the idea that an athlete will perform better when he’s hunting for that new deal than he will after he “gets paid.” The NBA free agent Class of 2015 is a star-studded one. LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol and DeAndre Jordan are about to cash in. The teams that sign these big-name players should beware...
Fantasy hoops: Which new NBA draftees should you be targeting?
You guys aren’t going to believe this. The Knicks took the “Next Dirk” in last week’s draft! By now, we’ve learned that it’s not that easy to be the Next Dirk. There have been 16 European lottery picks since 2002 and zero have made the All-Star game. So while Kristaps Porzingis is ticketed for heavy playing time as a rookie, he’s not a player worth targeting in fantasy drafts. These rookies are: Three towers At this point in the rebuilding process, the Sixers are not in a place to draft for...

Yes, you CAN get work done in a coworking space — here’s how
The first time Jonathan Tzou entered a coworking space was back in 2006, when he was a student at the University of Pennsylvania helping build a biomedical device prototype. “Workspaces like this were not super common at the time," says Tzou, who now works for a new task-completion app called Complete. But he loved it: “Building resources were ample, and mentorship was always within arm's reach," he says. "Without [that environment], I don't think our team would have been able to file our...
