how a souvenir started a panic at the trump-kim summit

yesterday, donald trump and kim jong-un met in singapore to discuss pouring some cold water on their war boners. it was a meeting that ended with trump promising to cancel the joint military exercises that the u.s. regularly holds with south korea (which came as a surprise to both south korea and the pentagon), while north korea promised to begin the process of denuclearization (a promise that they've been making since 1985).overall, the conference-y of dunces went pretty smoothly. or so you think.the summit was also attended by 2,000+ journalists. upon arrival, they were presented with some complimentary goodies, such as a bottle of water, a guidebook, a trial subscription to the country's biggest newspaper, and a usb fan -- which, as one journalist explained, was a total godsend.within...





inside the dumb plan to split california into three states

it was recently announced that californians will soon be voting on an initiative -- known as "cal 3" -- to split their beloved state into three smaller, bite-sized states: california, northern california, and southern california. and while it's fun to imagine how fox news would describe this new liberal hellscape triumvirate (sodom, gomorrah, and, uh, admah? zeboim?), cal 3 is promising to be the dumbest border screw-up we've ever seen.ilovetheeuwhich takes some beating, we assure you.cal 3 is the brainchild of tim draper, a venture capitalist and billionaire who, like most billionaires, spends his days unnecessarily getting in other people's business. in 2013, he spent $5.2 million on "cal 6," an initiative to split california into six states, which failed after it turned out that ...





the stupid, stupid way scammers are ripping off amazon

who still has the time to endlessly read long-ass novels? this isn't tsarist russia, we don't need dostoyevsky to stretch it out just so we have something to do during the eight-month winters. yet for some reason, novels keep getting longer and longer, and nowhere is this more obvious than in the world of self-publishing, where a surprising number of 3,000-page monsters are popping up in amazon's bestseller lists. but if you flip through their many pages, the only story you'll ever find is one of fraud and deception.pajibaalso, lady porn. lots and lots of lady porn. self-publishing has taken great strides in the last few years. what was once considered career suicide is now a great way to finally tell your tale of two horny extraterrestrial cosplayers falling in love during the span...

5 crazy ways we're trying to talk to aliens (right now)

if we do wind up contacting aliens, it's best we make a good first impression before their proton cannons make the impression for us. to do that, we have to present them with the best of what humanity has to offer. so do we show them our science? our art? maybe some brahms will lighten the mood? no. the most promising way to draw in aliens is not by cherry-picking our best moments, but simply dumping every single bit of dumb information about of our existence into their laps at once. we're talking, of course, about the internet.arguing the case for sending our cat gifs into the beyond is seth shostak, the director of the center for seti research, who argues that the internet has become the most complete documentation of the culture and history of planet earth (for better or worse). we co...





how young gamers can quietly ruin their parents' finances

what did she mean by that? well ... "my daughter shaved her head by choice. she gave it to a cancer wig charity, and she wanted her character to have that look. but in real money, it cost $15 for the pack that had that as an option. then she wanted an outfit like that, and that was even more. then she wanted to keep up with her friends."then there's the other factor to consider: games are using techniques psychologists and sociologists describe as "addictive" and "gambling." you can find stories of otherwise good kids who stole to support a gaming habit. gaming addiction is totally a thing, and where you find addiction, you find people stealing to support it. remember, free mobile games make most of their money from a small core of compulsive big spenders. you know, the same as casi...

5 world-famous movie scenes that were total accidents

a clockwork orange is about alex delarge, a 17-year-old sociopath played by malcolm mcdowell who only lives for violence, sexual assault, and classical music. and in one scene, we get to see all three, when mcdowell does a gleeful jig in the midst of a gruesome home invasion and gang rape, all while crooning the lyrics to "singin' in the rain".continue reading belowadvertisementthat part of the scene was improvised by mcdowell. apparently, kubrick thought that the whole vibe was getting a bit too dark (as rape scenes tend to be), and he asked mcdowell to sing a jaunty little something to pick up their spirits. mcdowell picked "singin' in the rain" because he thought it was "hollywood's gift to the world of euphoria," and kubrick agreed.of course, they didn't have the budget to li...
