Heck, there's an entire successful burger chain devoted to using the technique. While a more traditional griddled burger might be cooked with the goals of a loose, tender texture in mind, a smashed burger goes for one thing only: maximum crust.

2. Why You Rarely Notice Major Movie Bloopers

The visual field accounts for the recent past in order to prevent us from feeling like we’ve gone mad.

3. 1977: David Bowie’s “Heroes” Cover Shoot: The Outtakes: Masayoshi Sukita

4. The Two Faces of the Moon

5. Impostoritis: A Lifelong, but Treatable, Condition

Now I wake up most days with a voice on the left side of my head telling me what an incredible failure I am. But the voice on the right side tells me that I can change the world—and I try to pay more attention to it. My life goal in changing the world is to make the culture of science and engineering supportive of everyone with interest, ability, and willingness to work hard, independent of race, gender, sexual orientation, other interests, or anything else
