https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSOONAsCG0U Soon, my friends. Soon you’ll be able to relax inside the embrace of a warm theater, taking in the sexiest film of this young century–our generation’s Caligula. It is statistically improbable that it took this long for Lars von Trier to make a film called Nymphomaniac co-starring Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg. The important thing is that he finally did. Co.Create has been diligently chronicling the lead-up to the film’s release, and we’d be remiss not to report that the first full trailer has arrived.

What do you think is the “wildest” idea when it comes to transportation? Ruzwana Bashir: I’m excited about Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which could potentially be groundbreaking. This theoretical mode of transport through an elevated tube could really revolutionize the way we travel. It’s set to be a ‘fifth mode’ of transportation, making boats, aircrafts, automobiles, and trains seem very boring! Faris Yakob: The fact that Virgin Galactic just posted a video of a successful test flight and is confidant that it is on track for a commercial launch in 2014 is wild.
