Posted on Degenerate State, the scientist (named Iain) went onto “the largest metal lyrics archive on the web,” otherwise known as DarkLyrics.com, and trawled through the database of 222,623 songs by 7,634 bands.
After this, Iain compared the data with the Brown Corpus – a 50+ year old readable database of over one million English words filed by topical relevance – and came out with a top 20 most and least metal words.

Forget everything you knew about smart homes and the Legend of Zelda… One particular fan has managed to create a home automation system that is controlled by playing the Ocarina.
Following the instant success of Pokémon GO in summer 2016, rumours began that developer Niantic was working on another game – simply named Harry Potter GO. This is fake news, so please stop sharing it.
A team of researchers have done something incredible yet terrifying - using sound waves to hack a smartphone, using a method that could be used to theoretically control any technology with an accelerometer.
