Rich Froning won the 2014 CrossFit Games for the fourth consecutive year and was again crowned the “fittest man on Earth.” Rich, 27, has suggested he will retire from individual competition after the 2014 CrossFit Games, but will continue competing in team events. However, Froning appears to have had a change of heart. “I am not retiring, I am just switching gears,” he said after winning the CF Games for the fourth time. Last week, Froning signed a lucrative long-term contract with Reebok, sponsor of the CrossFit Games. While terms of the deal were not disclosed, a rep told Men’s Fitness Froning’s endorsement deal makes him one of Reebok’s highest-paid athletes whose earnings are on par with NBA and NFL stars.
The Supercar Driver recently staged a hyper-car shootout drag race event on a closed air strip. The hyper-cars included the Ferrari F40, Ford GT 720 Mirage, Porsche 9FF, Lamborghini Aventador and the McLaren P1.

The yearly ritual that is the release of a new Call of Duty has become more than a little stale, but with a new setting, a new story and a villain for the ages, Advanced Warfare might give the series the kick in the pants it needs to become as widely praised as it is widely purchased. As anyone who has played Call of Duty in the past might expect, the stakes are unbelievably high in Advanced Warfare. The entire civilization of Earth has been shaken to its core by the first global terrorist attack in history, an attack which stretched five continents and resulted in the decimation of multiple nuclear reactors. The nations of the world were at a loss, so they turned to the one private military corporation that might be able to keep them safe: Atlas.
After they were tipped off that a Walmart ice cream sandwich left out overnight didn’t melt, a Cincinnati news station set out to investigate. They put the question to food scientists, and the answer (not surprisingly) was the amount of stabilisers used in ice cream was so high it kept it’s shape even in high temperatures. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the stabilisers cellulose gum and guar gum are both categorised as safe for consumption. Would you still eat it?
Earlier today Paramount Pictures released a new trailer for Interstellar, director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi drama. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.” We get such a nice, expanded look at the film’s world (and the worlds of the film) in the new trailer. Will you watch it?
