Man attacks robot and humanity will probably pay for it one day

Man attacks robot and humanity will probably pay for it one day

TwitterFacebook

Why? After so many years of peaceful co-existence with our robot friends, why attack one and thus bring inevitable doom to all humans?

We may never know the answer to that, as a man who assaulted a security robot in Mountain View, California, at a parking lot of a company called Knightscope, was apparently quite drunk. 

According to Cnet, which spoke to the local police and Knightscope (which, incidentally makes security robots), 41-year-old Jason Sylvain knocked over the giant-egg-shaped K5 security robot last Thursday, after which Knightscope personnel called the police and detained him until they arrived. The police soon came and determined that Sylvain “appeared confused” and was likely drunk.  Read more…

You never, ever need to watch a romantic comedy ever again — Anne Hathaway and James Corden have condensed the entire genre into one glorious, 5-minute sing-a-thon.

From Sixpence None the Richer’s “Kiss Me” to The Proclaimers “500 Miles”, Hathaway and Corden belt their way through 10 songs and 9 different sets in a single take in the clip above.

The best bit? Probably Hathaway’s slurry imitation of drunk singing. Read more…

Liquor sales haven’t dropped where weed is legal, and people still go out, new analysis says


TwitterFacebook

Just because toking up is legal in some states, doesn’t mean that people aren’t still enjoying their booze.

When legalization started to push its way through, some people were a little worried, especially those who made their living selling alcohol. Would everyone start to smoke weed and ditch one of America’s favored pastimes: getting loaded off booze? 

Given how hush-hush people have been in the past about consuming cannabis, nobody could say for sure how many would partake, and if anything would change post-legalization. Turns out, people like getting high, and they also like getting drunk. Who knew? Read more…

This Google report about millennials is called ‘It’s Lit’ and oh, IT. IS. LIT.


TwitterFacebook

The Pentagon Papers. WikiLeaks. The Dead Sea Scrolls. The Rosetta Stone. The Magna Carta.

And now: 

It’s Lit: a guide to what teens think is cool.

Yeah, so, we found this because someone linked to it on Twitter, and all we know about it right now is that someone at Google put this report together, about what teens think is cool. It looks like a Macy’s catalog that got lost in 2004:

And you can glean more “insight” about young people from your drunk spinster aunt popping it to “Bad and Boujee” at your cousin Abe’s bar mitzvah, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a read.  

Just look at this:

India’s latest ban has Twitter in uproar


TwitterFacebook

After India’s apex court announced a ban on liquor sales along the country’s national highways, vendors, restaurateurs and citizens are outraged. 

The move aimed at reducing drunk driving incidents will likely result in the loss of a million jobs as well as make significant dents in the food and beverage industry. 

Ishan Grover, a resident of Gurgaon in the National Capital Region, among the worst-hit areas, has started a petition titled ‘Save Restaurants Bars And Hotels’ on Change.org. 

The petition requires 7,500 signatures for it to be heard by the president of India. It had earned over 6,150 signs at the time of writing. Read more…

You can now get terrible Jack in the Box tacos delivered to your house

You can now get terrible Jack in the Box tacos delivered to your house

TwitterFacebook

With Americans eating 554 million Jack in the Box tacos every year, as a nation we should probably be finding ways to slow down our fast food habits.

But instead the chain known for its tacos, suped-up burgers and ping pong-headed mascot has partnered with a mobile food delivery app to make it even easier to chow down.

Starting Thursday, DoorDash is delivering the oddly craveable but often stomach ache-inducing bites to 200 cities nationwide, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, Seattle and Denver. 

Back in October, San Francisco was the testing ground for the delivery partnership and a pilot program rolled out in other select cities shortly after. All those trials must have done well enough to expand to so many places now.  Read more…

A drunken Cayde-6 teases the March 30 reveal for ‘Destiny 2’


TwitterFacebook

Cayde-6 — voiced by the one and only Nathan Fillion — is basically the alien robot version of Firefly‘s Captain Mal. He’s the life of the party, a wise-cracking robo-man who lightens the mood whenever he opens his metal trap.

How fitting, then, that Cayde-6 is here to give us a first taste of what’s to come in Destiny 2. This freshly released cinematic teaser doesn’t tell you anything explicit about the game, but it does deliver a date and time for the formal sequel reveal: March 30, at 1 p.m. ET.

Give the teaser a look right here:

Zombie Javier Bardem is NOT happy in the new ‘Pirates’ trailer


TwitterFacebook

Here’s a fun bit of triviaPirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is actually the second longest title in the series. It falls one short of the 10-word mouthful that was Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Javier Bardem is an angry ghost pirate in Disney’s next Pirates adventure. If you’re looking for a reason to go — any reason at all — there it is. The latest trailer peers into some of the backstory that turned Bardem’s Captain Armando Salazar into a Jack Sparrow hater; believe it or not, it wasn’t just Johnny Depp’s drunken monkey antics.

Kid who can’t handle being grounded for a day overreacts like only a 9 year old can


TwitterFacebook

Ahh the pains of being 9 years old. All the angst of a teenager and no idea what to do with it. 

Sometimes the only solution is to, like, pack your bags and run away to wherever pre-teen runaways go to? At least that’s what this 9-year-old girl planned to do:

think my little sister is overacting a bit all because she got grounded for a day 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/Bq08CAbQ5j

When @nicole_kennedyy texted her younger sister to check up on her, she was met with a slew of drama. 

“The only thing that I like in my life is my friends, iPhone and my new house,” is an incredible statement. It’s something that only a young girl overreacting to being grounded or a drunk girl after a rough night out could say. Read more…
