Here's a kangaroo on a leash in Detroit. Nope, nothing odd about that.

Wednesday Mar 29th 2017

Kangaroos are typically found roaming Australia, where their biggest problems are the occasional boxing match, cars and angry farmers.

No wonder then that people were stunned to see the unusual marsupial on a leash, running a man down the street in the suburbs of Detroit.

Footage of the bizarre sight was shared on Twitter Tuesday.

Authorities don't seem so impressed by the idea of a kangaroo hopping down an American street.

"It is not legal to own a kangaroo in the city of Detroit," Kelly McLaughlin, assistant director at the Detroit Animal Control Center, told MLive. Read more...

Watching this robot print and burn Donald Trump's tweets is oddly satisfying

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Do you burn with rage every time you read a tweet from Donald Trump?

Then we have the machine for you. 

SEE ALSO: Trump wants to kill the energy program that helped make Tesla what it is today

It automatically prints out the president's tweets, grabs them with a robotic arm, burns them with a lighter, and then deposits the remains in an ash tray. The videos are then posted to the "Burned Your Tweet" account on Twitter. 

Here Trump tries to deflect attention away from his administration's ties to Russia. Sorry Donald, but that tweet is going up in flames. 

Oddly satisfying.

Let's watch it burn some more tweets, shall we? This one's for the "failing" New York Times, which, ironically enough, added a ton of digital subscribers after Trump became president.  Read more...

Google has more problems as YouTube ad boycott reaches another country

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

It takes only minutes on YouTube to find ads from major brands next to hateful videos promoting extremism and racism. 

Though the issue has been longstanding, a global brand boycott of the platform has been gathering steam. It's now reached Australia, with Telstra and Foxtel swearing off YouTube. At least, for now.

As first reported by Fairfax Media, the Australian arms of Vodafone and Nestlé have also joined the boycott.

A spokesperson for the cable TV provider Foxtel said the company is "actively engaged with Google" to ensure its ads are not run next to offensive content, but it still suspended advertising until the issue is resolved. Read more...

This cockatiel singing Mozart is way more cultured than you

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Coco is a rescue cockatiel from Sydney who has a very fine taste in music.

You see, it seems to prefer to chirp to the sounds of Mozart rather than the pesky sounds of a human being or whatever the kids are listening to on the radio nowadays.

It's singing an aria performed by the Queen of the Night in Mozart's The Magic Flute, which proves that this bird is way more cultured than you'll ever be. Read more...

A dead man's penis is all anyone can remember from the new 'Baywatch' footage

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

There's a lot described these days as things you "can't unsee," but I promise this is not hyperbole: Even as I type, I cannot banish from my mind the vision of that dead man's penis.

Paramount Pictures opened its Cinemacon slate presentation Tuesday night with the cast of Baywatch, who introduced a "fuscia band" trailer (that's "rated FU for 'fucking awesome'" if you must know) that you may consider skipping, depending on your ability to forget.

Cyclone Debbie proved one thing: Australians are super weird

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Cyclone Debbie was a big one. It tore down trees, smashed wharves and sent people huddling indoors as it made landfall in north Queensland on Tuesday.

But even in the face of wind gusts that reached at least 260 kilometres (162 miles) per hour, there was plenty of bizarre, occasionally foolhardy behaviour going on in the face of one of the biggest storms to hit that part of the country since Cyclone Yasi in 2011.

Bon Appétit is trying to make 'hand salad' a thing, but no one is falling for it

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Our attempts at living a healthy lifestyle may have just hit a new low.

On Monday, food magazine Bon Appétit tweeted out a link to a recipe for something called "hand salad." While the name is distasteful and can bring to mind some other horrible, more literal scenarios, the tweet came with a photo that shows you exactly what hand salad is in this case.

Elon Musk, please jam a computer into my brain

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, has reportedly launched yet another futuristic company. Neuralink Corp., his latest project, will work to merge the human brain with computers.

I would like to use this post as a means of applying to become the first human subject in this experiment. 

Mr. Musk, please put a computer in my head.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Neuralink Corp. will likely begin with the treatment of brain diseases, eventually growing to expand the basic functions of the human brain. The latter stage, Musk has said, would help give humanity a fighting chance against Artificial Intelligence. Read more...

Trump plays the villain in trailer for 'An Inconvenient Truth' sequel

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

"Climate changes. Truth does not."

That's the tagline for An Inconvenient Sequel, the follow-up to Al Gore's 2007 documentary An Inconvenient Truth.

The documentary — which debuted at Sundance Film Festival — released its first trailer on Tuesday, and it couldn't be more timely.

President Trump plays a prominent role in the trailer, which dropped on the same day that the president signed an executive order aimed at rolling back the Obama Administration's climate policies.

SEE ALSO: Al Gore is a climate change James Bond in urgent, exhilarating 'Inconvenient Sequel'

The order reopens federal lands to coal mining and effectively makes it impossible for the U.S. to meet its goals under the Paris Climate Agreement, which Gore helped advocate for in 2015.  Read more...

Americans now trust ads more than news and who can blame them?

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Are you tired of doubting information from the news media? Fed up with America's public institutions?

Well, you're in luck, because a new survey has revealed one surprising source that Americans trust in increasing numbers: advertising.

SEE ALSO: It only took us five minutes to find a big brand advertising on a hate group's YouTube

A report released by market research firm YouGov on Monday found the American public's faith in the ads they see has grown over the past few years, just as trust in mass-media news, government and other institutions sinks to new lows.  

Nearly three quarters of people surveyed now say they think advertising is generally "honest" — a 16 percent jump from March of 2014.  Read more...

Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson won't half-ass their new crafting competition show. They'll whole-ass it.

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Our lives have been so much darker since Parks and Recreation left our screens.

Luckily, the beautiful people known as Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman (aka Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson) are reuniting to make the world a better place, one handmade object at a time.

Poehler and Offerman will host a six-episode competition series called The Handmade Project (sadly no relation to Hulu's Handmaid's Tale, although we'd love to see their take on that too), which Poehler will produce through her Paper Kite Productions company.

You seriously cannot trust the internet to name anything

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

An ownership group in San Diego that's trying to make their city the next home of Major League Soccer put potential team names online for a fan vote. 

Classic mistake! 

You can never trust those jokers on the internet.

Remember "Boaty McBoatface"? That's the $243.3 million polar research vessel that the internet overwhelmingly voted to give a ridiculous name. (It didn't quite stick, alas, but kind of lives on.)

Now we have "Footy McFooty Face."

Lucille Bluth explains why the Trump family is 'Arrested Development' IRL

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Remember the Bluths?

They were the comically entitled clan from Arrested Development with a real estate empire and out-of-touch family members vying for money and power. 

Lucille Bluth, the shopping-addicted matriarch with a martini, was played by actress Jessica Walter. And Walter thinks there's another well-known American family that's just like the Bluths — with one teensy difference.

Is a coconut a nut?

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

It might not be so obvious at first glance, but a coconut is technically a fruit, a general nut and a seed. 

The coconut belongs to a group of fruits called drupes. Drupes have a fleshy part covering a hard shell containing the seed. Other drupes include peaches, cherries and almonds — the most elusive one of them all (you guessed it) being the coconut. Read more...

Spiders could eat all humans in one year, and this petition wants to make it happen

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

The Washington Post either ruined or made your day on Tuesday when it published a bit of an analysis that suggests spiders could eat every human on Earth in one year if they really wanted to.

Now musician John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats is petitioning Senator Al Franken to help make that happen.

SEE ALSO: Watch this horrifying redback spider take out a snake

It reads:

The WaPo piece that kicked off Darnielle's bid for swift human extinction bases its analysis on a study published this month on the global spider population's eating habits. 

Researchers Martin Nyffeler and Klaus Birkhofer found that spiders the world over consume, in total, between 400 and 800-million tons of prey per year. It's a set of numbers large enough to trigger a fear-induced blackout for anyone with arachnophobia. Read more...

NBC will air the 2018 Olympics live because social media always spoils everything

Tuesday Mar 28th 2017

Finally! NBC will air the 2018 Winter Olympics live across all U.S. time zones. 

You can thank — or blame — social media

SEE ALSO: These terrible photos might explain why Donald Trump rejected an offer to throw a first pitch

NBC's conundrum was simple and has sparked complaints from fans for years.

It went like this: The Olympic Games are a global event that often happens half a world away from the United States. NBC used to broadcast the most intriguing competitions during U.S. primetime. But as social media and digital technology revolutionized the ease of learning results as they happened (or even watching them happen via online live-stream), NBC's lack of live broadcasts seemed increasingly greedy and outdated.  Read more...
