I can't get over how great this is. This woman is incredibly sharp and Americans should hope that she'll stay on the Supreme Court for many more years. Her reactions to Colbert are priceless. He's being stupid and she's having none of it.
That's The Late Show at its best. I love it. It's crazy for me to think a politician would want to exact revenge on a corporation because it won't continue to support the NRA, an organisation that condones the slaughtering of children in classrooms.
I greatly enjoy The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and their newest correspondent seems like an amazing addition to an already hilarious team. Watch for yourself:
There are many people who are against vaccinating themselves or their children. Most often they're afraid of adverse effects attributed to vaccines by hacks, liars, and profiteers of fear and confusion. The fact that close to all of these adverse effects have never been successfully linked to vaccinations or were straight-up lies doesn't help to convince them.
Please show them this video, it may help prevent their kids from dying or being disabled for life from contracting a preventable disease.
If any of this surprises you, you obviously have no idea how vain we men are.
The Verge has a really funny article up, about Juicero, the
USD 700 USD 400 Wi-Fi-connected "juicer". The story behind and around this thing is utterly ridiculous and funny, especially once you realise that investors were convinced this is a good idea. Go ahead, read the article and watch the video; it's worth it for the laughs:
Turns out Juicero’s ludicrous Wi-Fi juicer is even more unnecessary than it sounds — by Jacob Kastrenakes @ The Verge
Calling this device a juicer stretches the term almost past its breaking point:
- It merely squeezes pre-made juice packs into a glass.
- It doesn't produce juice from fresh fruit or vegetables.
- It's impractical because the small juice packs have to be replaced constantly and you have to put a glass beneath it by yourself.
- It produces a huge amount of non-degradable waste, unlike, you know, an actual juicer.
- It's not a stretch to assume a real juicer will give you fresher juice and store-bought organic juice is probably just as good.
- It forces you to buy juice packs from the company behind the Juicero.
- It's an Internet of Things device for no apparent reason other than to save you from having to push a button when you arrive in the kitchen (hoping that you remembered to put a glass beneath it beforehand).
- It's probably easily compromised because I can't see a Silicon Valley startup caring about properly securing their IoT devices.
- It, eventually, creates more problems than it solves and fails at being what it claims: a juicer.
It boggles my mind that this thing was a) thought of as a good idea, b) developed beyond the basic conceptual stage, c) funded (!), and d) made into an actual product you can buy.
