This week on Test Dummy, Jess takes the Theragun G3PRO for a spin. The percussive therapy device claims to improve muscle strength, flexibility and performance—but does it deliver? Teaming up with Associate Editor Claire Maldarelli—a seasoned marathon runner in training season—Jess digs into peer-reviewed research and speaks with experts to find the truth. Does the Theragun actually help muscles recover, or are Jess and Claire just experiencing the placebo effect? (This weird, wild, and wondrous video is a part of YouTube’s #stayhome and #learn #withme initiative.)

    “That’s a lot of claims per 30 seconds.” Come on, ladies, it’s not your first rodeo.

    Can you someone please do a tutorial on this story? The instructions are a bit confusing.

    I bought the G3Pro about 3 weeks ago. This massage gun has almost completely healed my plantar fasciitis. It was getting to the point where i could barley walk. No placebo effect for me. Worth every penny.

The TRUE STORY of Hitchcock’s The Birds | Science Stranger than Fiction || Wild Lives Ep. 2

LIKE, THIS REALLY HAPPENED. Alfred Hitchcock’s classic THE BIRDS is, in part, inspired by a very real phenomenon that occurred in Santa Cruz, California in 1961. One night, inexplicably, thousands of sooty shearwater birds lost their minds, dive-bombing into homes and even biting people. But, for 50 years, no one knew why… That is, until…

LIKE, THIS REALLY HAPPENED. Alfred Hitchcock’s classic THE BIRDS is, in part, inspired by a very real phenomenon that occurred in Santa Cruz, California in 1961. One night, inexplicably, thousands of sooty shearwater birds lost their minds, dive-bombing into homes and even biting people. But, for 50 years, no one knew why… That is, until Dr. Sibel Bargu Ates connected dots throughout history through meticulous (and rather imaginative) archive specimen research. This is a Hitchcockian mystery wrapped in a scientific paper—a biological whodunnit.

And, learn how birds flock and move together. In fact, a 1986 computer program helped solve the puzzle of how they actually fly so close without every bird in a flock ricocheting off each other like pinballs.

Said another way, this is a story all about bird brains.

► THIS IS THE MOST INTERESTING LION IN THE WORLD. After all, how many lions have movies and songs made about them because of never before seen animal behavior? Just one lion—Frasier, the Sensuous Lion… I mean, how is fathering 35 cubs when you’re 20 lion years old even possible?!:

► HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED about what makes an animal hibernate? PopSci formed an orchestra of hibernating animals to tell you about their winter’s sleep:

► DID YOU KNOW the first underwater film ever recorded was lost to history until PopSci found it mislabeled in a Dutch archive? It’s a story too strange to be fiction (and, yes, it involves a shark and a horse). Also, it’s the first footage of a shark ever recorded:

► DO YOU LOVE DOGS? WHAT ABOUT SPACE? Watch our video about Laika, our hero:

In their own words. Well, approximately their own words—they are wild animals after all.

LION. KING. How a 19 year old lion fathered 35 cubs… in a year and a half. This is the wild story of a lion named Frasier—Frasier the Sensuous Lion—who became a science wonder the world over in 1972. After all, how many lions have movies and songs made about them because of never before seen animal behavior?

You see, Frasier defied what was previously known about lion breeding habits—any animal’s really. Did you say 35 cubs? In just 18 months? And, wait, how old?
