Wow! Can you believe that Weird Science is 30 years old?? The John Hughes comedy fantasy classic came out on August 2, 1985.
And while the rest of the film — about teens who use their computer to create a super-powered woman — is pretty dated, one thing really stood the test of time: Robert Downey Jr.
Who knew at the time that New Wave bully No. 2 would one day be the biggest movie star on the planet?

He may have gone by Robert Downey at the time, but his face really emphasized the Junior! Just look at him! He's an Iron Baby!
If you haven't seen the flick in three decades, we recommend revisiting — if just for the pure, uncut RDJ! So adorable!

Get ready for your daily dose of crazy!
A man in Saudi Arabia chronically had at least one nosebleed a month for over three years, caused whenever he rubbed his nose.
Well, doctors found out that “minor nasal trauma” was due to a 1/2 inch long TOOTH that was growing in his nasal cavity! Apparently, this also caused him to have tonsillitis as well.

Ever wish you had a machine that could produce Victoria’s Secret models with the touch of a button?
Well Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte and Mad Men's Marten Weiner have built exactly that in this HIGHlarious Funny Or Die video!
Not to give too much away, but the "Babe-a-nator" pretty much backfires and creates an Alessandra Ambrosio who's…not quite herself.
We never thought we’d see the day when Alessandra looked anything less than perfect, but there's a first time for everything, right?
Check out Ale's scary scientific makeover (above)!

Universal had a great time with the HIGHlarious R-rated version of 21 Jump Street, and so did we!
Now they're giving screenwriter Michael Bacall a shot at re-imagining the number one teen sci-fi comedy about a wish-granting sex computer of all time!
That's right! They're remaking Weird Science!
The 1985 comedy classic starred Anthony Michael Hall and where-are-they-now-favorite Ilan Mitchell-Smith as two high school losers who use science and magic to create a sexy genie!
We're not sure we could buy Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in this one, but we'd like to see them pop up somewhere!
Ooh, wait! Brainwave! Gender reversal! Two dorky girls can star with Channing as the sex computer!
No need to thank us, Mr. Bacall! Just make it amazing, and we'll call it even!

This is amazing! Weird, but amazing.
Particle engineer Paul Luckham and fashion designer Manel Torres have created a liquid formula that turns into fabric when it's sprayed on to the body.
The material can also be recycled after it's been worn and made into a completely new garment.
Check out the futuristic fashion in the clip, above!
