So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female.

A conversation between Alex Hirsch and Emmy Cicierega on Twitter. Clearly, the staff of Gravity Falls are professionals and Season Two will be better than ever.

(The punchline doesn’t really work well as a picture, so click here to hear Alex’s reading of his own Emmy-worthy dialogue.)

THIS GLASS TREEHOUSE IS ACTUALLY A TREE IN A HOUSE

A treehouse obviously isn’t a treehouse without a tree. But what happens when you build the structure around the greenery instead of placing it on top? You end up with this modern take on the classic forest abode.

Robots that will fold your laundry

This is “Brett” also known as The Berkeley Robot for the Elimination of Tedious Tasks.  This guy can do simple household chores. Specifically, the robot can fold laundry and is part of an ongoing project by UC Berkeley’s Pieter Abbeel.

Folding towels might seem easy to us humans, but this is actually quite complicated for a robot to do.  In fact it requires a method where the robot learns the tasks by seeing how humans do it.  Abbeel explains:

For robots to be integrated in unstructured or changing environments, such as a typical human household, they must develop the ability to learn from human experts and to even teach themselves.  

The hope is to have these robots perform everyday chores for the elderly or disabled so that they can live more independently.
