The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) quietly released a list this week with the names of its recently classified reports. But some in Congress aren’t too happy about it. The publication of the list took about a year of negotiations between the GAO and Congress.
Everyone knows that the 2015 that Doc and Marty time traveled to in Back to the Future II was so much cooler than our 2015. They had hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers and flying cars and fusion reactors! We don’t have any of that. Instead we have bad fashion taste, global warming, selfies, Internet bullying and…
Construction crews in Indiana were shocked to discover a time capsule from 1958 at a former mental hospital. The most exciting part? It contains a film with a message to the future–a message about electroshock therapy and psychiatric drugs.
We still don’t have hoverboards. At least not the ones we were promised in the 1989 movie, Back to the Future: Part II. And this new promo video from Universal Pictures does little more than remind us that living in the future is garbage.
Stop being silly. You don’t live in a modern day version of The Truman Show. If you did, don’t you think your friends and family would’ve told you by now? The mere idea is absurd.
On October 11, 1910 Teddy Roosevelt became the first president to fly in an airplane. Well, technically he was an ex-president at the time. But that somehow makes it even more badass.
1984: The Tot robot, manufactured by the now-defunct company Comro, puts a California sea lion through a series of tests during a demonstration at the New York Aquarium at Coney Island.

Police in Philadelphia are looking for a man who robbed several people at gunpoint on October 5th at a Chinese take-out restaurant. He stole the victims’ phones, their wallets, and a “hoverboard.” Yep, people are getting robbed for their hoverboards now.
Chris McCann, the founder of the fringe Christian group eBible Fellowship, says the world is going to end on October 7, 2015. He confidently claims that the Earth will be completely “annihilated.” Could he be right?
As celebrations for Back to the Future’s 30th anniversary get under way, Universal have gone on a bit of a nostalgia spree: first they brought back Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown for a new short, and now? Well, they’re hyping up the 19th entry in the Jaws saga, Back to the Future II style.
People who grew up watching Back to the Future: Part II are still waiting on hoverboards, flying cars, and those self-lacing shoes. But there is one product that fans of the film will soon be able to buy: Pepsi Perfect.
Are you ready for October 21, 2015? That’s the date that Marty McFly arrives in the future — at least according to the second Back to the Future movie. But if you’re planning on watching the trilogy to celebrate, you’ll only have one streaming option: Amazon Prime.
As if you didn’t already know, next month finally marks the day from Back to the Future Part II when Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrived in 2015. There’s a lot going on to celebrate the occasion (click here for proof) but this may be the best thing yet.

Virgin broke ground on a new hotel in New York on Friday and, as a courtesy to future generations, they buried a time capsule. That’s the capsule on the far left, and Richard Branson kissing the shoe of Melissa Hill from the U.S. Department of Commerce on the right. Why is Sir Richard Branson kissing a Commerce…
