It turns out that Japanese tempura is not Japanese - Alltop Viral

When you think of Japanese food, you probably think of sushi, ramen, or tempura. Well, we have some interesting news for you: Japanese tempura is not really Japanese in origin. Actually, Japanese tempura is Portuguese tempura. Portuguese travels brought tempura-style cooking to Japan in the fifteen-hundreds. Here's the story of how tempura came to Japan via Portugal and became so stereotypically Japanese. Try to watch this without getting hungry ...

The longest train in the world - Alltop Viral

This video is about the longest train in the world. But it's not actually about the longest train in the world, because the simple answer to that question is really boring: four and a half miles long. No big deal. What's far more interesting is how long the longest set of continuous tracks could be. The trick is this: countries have different gauge train tracks, so trains can't easily travel between countries. This video describes how trains get ...

Welcome to the oldest restaurant in the world - Alltop Viral

Take a second to think about the oldest restaurants in your town. How old is it? Maybe twenty years old? Thirty if you live in an older town? However old it is, that restaurant probably can't hold a candle to this one, because it's a whopping 293 years old. In that time, its oven has been continually burning, and they've been continually serving their specialty: suckling pig roast. Take a tour of this piece of history here.

There are ant paramedics who care for injured ants - Alltop Viral

When ants go out on their little ant missions, sometimes some of the ants get injured. They lose a limb or maybe more than one. But the ants don't leave their injured ones behind willy nilly. There are actually some ants who tend to the wounded. If an ant is too injured––that is, if it lacks too many limbs––it will thrash around and the helper ant can't get close. If the ant is only missing one or two limbs, helpers will carry it back and then te...

Why Conan O'Brien is still so funny - Alltop Viral

Conan O'Brien has been on the air for what feels like forever. You'd think his style wouldn't be as funny now as it was when it started, but it definitely is. This video dissects Conan O'Brien's show's style and what makes it so funny. Namely, Conan does everything almost, but not entirely right. He has the perfect talk show set up, but there's always something a little bit quirky. The whole show is a funny man-straight man setup––it's worked int...

How are there such cool shots of the SpaceX launch? - Alltop Viral

Recently, the world watched with rapt attention as SpaceX took to the sky and then landed again. People all over the world were going nuts over this, to put it less poetically. They were going so crazy, in fact, that no one really stopped to ask how they were watching it. That is, what is the technology that makes this incredible footage possible? It definitely can't be done with a standard DSLR or camcorder. This video explains how it was done.

Ryan urges House Republicans to raise more campaign money: report — The Hill

G+ Android app update

Hey folks, over the next several days, we'll be enabling a brand new version of the G+ Android app. Though it very closely resembles the current app, this new version is the culmination of a complete rewrite of many core features using Google's latest Android app infrastructure which will allow our Android team to build new features on a modern tech stack.

During the rewrite, we were able to build in some subtle updates. For instance, stream rendering and scrolling have been improved, the photo lightbox has been redesigned, comment options slide up from a bottom sheet, and grey-spammed comments are now viewable by post authors.

Since this is a rewrite, there are a few known issues that we're working through. For instance, leaving a comment on a post causes a full refresh of the post to include your comment. Take it for a spin if you get the chance, and we hope you don't mind the dust.
