Inside the Bulletproof Coffee Guy’s New Body-Hacking Gym
1080
The Beverly Hilton feels pretty peak Los Angeles. Under a bright blue sky, valets park luxury cars with views of palm trees. In the lobby, chandeliers twinkle for the guests who will soon be heading out to a pool cabana. Or perhaps they’re here to visit Upgrade Labs, a startup that bills itself as the world’s first biohacking health and fitness facility.

What Stranger Things' High Viewership Numbers Actually Mean
123
Hey, guess what? Some 40 million household accounts have been streaming Stranger Things's third season! It's true, Netflix says so. They also say, via tweet, that 18.2 million of those accounts have already finished the new season. Pretty cool, right? It certainly sounds impressive. But is it? Like justice for Barb, the answer to that question may be forever elusive. TVNetflix Could Never Make Its Own OfficeLong-running shows with 20-episode-plus seasons are not a specialty of streaming services.

Can't Set Off Fireworks? Try These Science-Backed Alternatives
314
The Fourth of July, Independence Day, America’s birthday—whatever you want to call it, this holiday is a time for celebration. As it evokes the rich history of a proud, tumultuous country, the Fourth of July reminds us of all that we have in common, of the single, shared yearning that resides deep in the heart of every human being: the desire to blow things up. July Fourth is a holiday designed to terrify dogs and assert America’s dominance through firepower.

Knowing What You Really Want Is Your Tidying Superpower
520
This story is part of a series on how we clean—from taming your trove of photos to washing your tuchus. Gawd, just look at your kitchen drawers. Junk drawers, every single one of them. Your shelves are groaning with enough books to last you for a dozen desert islands. Your closets contain torrents of T-shirts, boxes full of papers, and piles of dust-bunnied shoes. Your desk is a forest of stress-beavered ballpoint pens. You need to tidy the fuck up. WIRED Series PrintA Tour of How We clean stuff.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Isn’t the Next Pokémon Go. Good
490
When developer Niantic launched Pokémon Go in the summer of 2016, it did so at maximum velocity. The game’s blend of simple mechanics and next-level augmented reality sparked a months-long stretch of virality, followed by years of low-key dominance. The studio’s follow-up, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, debuted Thursday on iOS and Android.

Review: Brim 8-Cup Pour-Over Coffee Maker
663
Recently, in the pursuit of a better cup of Joe, I've developed what my officemates have called an odd ritual with the coffee machine. The old automatic is a teal-colored Mr. Coffee, the 900-watt JWX36T, and left to its own devices it splatters water in a straight line across the circle of grounds in the filter basket, pretty much missing anything that’s not directly in its path. This is bad.

Snow Peak’s Fire Pit Makes Me Like Camping Again
322
I first saw Snow Peak’s pack-and-carry fire pit at Snow Peak Way, the cult outdoor brand's yearly camping retreat. A few fire pits were set up in the field, deep in the wooded recesses of the Columbia River Gorge. Kids of all ages gathered around them, helping themselves to marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers, while their parents warmed their toes beside them. My husband handed glow sticks to our two kids and they ran around like happy, sticky fireflies in the dimming twilight.

Plant Silhouettes Foreshadow the Effects of Climate Change
259
Science can tell us a lot about climate change, like the fact that temperatures are rising, oceans are warming, and polar bears are dying. But it isn't the greatest at helping us process that information and the feelings it can provoke—from sadness to guilt to golly gee willikers we're toast. For that, former field biologist Deanna Whitman turns to art.

James Holzhauer Finally Lost Jeopardy!—and Changed the Game for Good
269
It’s over. Thirty-three games, more than 1,100 correct responses, and $2,464,216 dollars after first taking the Jeopardy! contestant podium, James Holzhauer lost. While his run failed to match Ken Jennings’ for either longevity or earnings—he fell just $56,484 short—Holzhauer has left as indelible a mark on the game. How did he do it? By not treating Jeopardy! like a game at all.

Depth of Field: At the French Open, Serena Williams Is a Study in Motion
206
Serena Williams descended upon the clay courts of the French Open in Paris this week, where, the year prior, she had become a lodestar of ridiculous controversy. In one early bout, Williams' decision to wear a black catsuit resulted in a violation; the form of dress has since been banned by the French Tennis Federation. "The combination of Serena this year, for example, it will no longer be accepted," FTF President Bernard Giudicelli told Tennis magazine.

The YouTuber on a Mission to Save the Classic RPG

English professor Matt Barton grew up loving computer role-playing games like Pool of Radiance and Baldur’s Gate, and was discouraged when that style of thoughtful, analytical gameplay almost disappeared. “For a long time the very words ‘turn-based’ were enough to make everybody laugh at you,” Barton says in Episode 363 of the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast. “It was like, ‘Who wants that? It’s boring.
