*Count yourself pretty hard to impress if you don’t find this portrait of actor Morgan Freeman to be absolutely AMAZING. An 18-year-old British artist used his fingers to create the ultra-realistic picture of the actor – capturing all the characteristics we have come to know him by. The distinguished gray hair, calm, direct stare, on a face punctuated with tiny moles.
Artist Jack Ede spent a period of 137 hours to create this drawing of the actor and documented his step-by-step process via Instagram and YouTube. Continue reading →
*You know that technology has infinite possibilities, right? And it doesn’t just stop at software. Now, it is being designed to change the way men and women interact. In other words, based on developments in technology, sexual intercourse between a man and a woman may no longer be necessary – to make a baby, that is.
Here are five different technologies that are changing the way procreation happens.
Birth control shots for men.
1. Beginning in 2015 your doctor can provide birth control shots for men. The shot, called a Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance, is injected into a man’s scrotum and as the name suggests, it is completely reversible. Other countries have used this form of birth control for quite some time and it has shown just as effective (if not more so) than women’s contraceptives.
Eggs than never go bad.
2. That’s right!Ladies, never worry about your biological time clock again. Now, by freezing your eggs, you can use them when you get good and ready and the unfreezing process is simple and then the eggs are implanted. The only thing is, its very expensive and there is no guarantee that the egg will be fertilized once it is unfrozen (the eggs are viable but it all depends on the sperm).Continue reading →
*Whether its a ‘smiley face’ in your sentence that reiterates the intent of your message; or that ‘red devil’ image, folks have made it known they want the old “Emoji” to begin reflecting a more ethnically diverse image.
Over the past two years Twitter campaigns by Miley Cyrus and other celebs, have brought attention to the fact the the cute, quirky emoticons that punctuate online communication need a makeover that will include skin tones representing people of color.
Dubbed “Embrojis” by Roots drummer Questlove, the more racially diverse icons are expected to appear sometime in 2015.Continue reading →
*Thank goodness for merciful pilots! This was probably the permeating thought of passengers on board a transpacific flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Sydney Australia as they endured a bathroom breakdown over the weekend.
The incident occurred on a Virgin Australia flight on Sunday.
According to what one passenger told KCAL9’s Laurie Perez, the flight was only a few minutes in when he heard a “pop.”
He said the cabin was then filled with the worst kind of stench. Others passengers immediately took to Twitter to describe the incident.Continue reading →
*Hear ye, hear ye! This cash machine has a message for you; but its not the one its makers intended so, never mind. Tesco’s translation blooper offered ‘free erections’ instead of ‘free cash’ at a hole-in-the wall in Wales.
People in the Welsh town of Aberystwyth, where the faulty feature took place, had plenty to laugh about upon seeing it.
The sign should have read ‘arian am ddim’ which means ‘free money’ but instead it read ‘codiad am ddim’ which means free erections. Continue reading →
*Charlo Greene is riding high on the wave of her new-found celebrity as the first reporter to break the rules of professionalism (forget journalism) on-air by delivering her resignation via a “F**k it, I quit!” message to her employer and the TV viewing audience at once, on LIVE TV!
The now classic incident went viral immediately and Greene is now making TV appearances as a result, to publicize, she says, the need for Alaska to legalize marijuana, and to steer voters away from the state’s “Vote No On 2″ campaign. You’ve got to give this girl credit for one thing, she knows how to milk a moment and entertain us at the same time!
Just not sure if her strategy will help pot get legalized in her state in the process.
I mean the whole, “Look, I can smoke a joint and still be just as lucid” example might not hold up over say, a 30 or 45-minute time frame, if you get my drift.Continue reading →
*Please tell me you were not one of those who actually believed the online “ads” that claimed a “quick charge” to the new iPhone 6, could be done by popping it in the microwave. Please.
Yeah the ad looked pretty convincing, but c’mon!
However, if you were one of the unfortunate ones who tried this with your new investment, you probably realize now that the device is beyond ruined. And no, your insurance won’t cover this, deductible aside, they probably weren’t thinking you would put it in the microwave. Continue reading →
