  1. Snoop Dogg and Jared Leto Are Now Part-Owners of Reddit Along With Other Less Entertaining Investors

    Redditzilla incoming?

    Reddit recently closed a whopping $50 million round of investing that brought in money from sources that varied from initial Reddit supporter Sam Altman to Jared Leto and Snoop Dogg—er, Doggy Dogg—er, Lion? I'm not up on his current name status. The investment money brings with it many questions, like how soon before we can expect an animal-centric renaming structure for Reddit?

  2. Carnegie Science Center Makes Less-Than-Optimal Programming Choice For Girl Scouts

    Hey, at least it wasn't cookie making, right?

    I have immense respect for the Carnegie Science Center. The Institution does a lot of admirable work, and I can only imagine the intricate decision process involved in coordinating its programs. But big organizations are bound to make mistakes sometimes, right?

  3. [Updated] Facebook Has Apologized for Unfair Treatment of Transgender Users Under Their “Real Name” Rule

    I only wish everyone would like this.

    Earlier this month, users who weren't registered under their "real" names on Facebook received flagged and suspended accounts. The problem with that is assuming that someone's "real" name is automatically synonymous with their given legal name, and transgender users, drag queens, and drag kings were suspended for using the names they had chosen for themselves. Finally, Facebook has apologized.

  5. Ebola Isn’t Going to Have a U.S. Outbreak, So Take Your Concern and Use It to Help Where It Is a Problem

    Don't panic.

    The first case of Ebola in the U.S. has been documented, but as Chinese state media has helpfully pointed out, Ebola is not a zombie plague. You, a citizen of the U.S. (or other developed nation) are not going to catch Ebola, nor is it going to become a major outbreak where you live. Instead, take that concern and help people who live where it is a problem.

  6. Japanese Scientists Think Climate Change Could Alter Human Male-to-Female Birth Ratio

    And just like that, Congress cares about global warming.

    Since the '70s, Japan has seen a surprising fluctuation in the gender ratio of babies born in the country; specifically, there's been an increase in deaths of male fetuses in relation to deaths of female fetuses, which leads to more female babies being born. Surely that can't have anything to do with the way the temperature has been shifting in Japan over the past 40 years. What's that you say? It might? Well, uh oh.

    Where's the "I just want pizza" option?

    Yes, the above video's after-school-special vibes might undermine Good2Go's awesome potential, but the more knowledgeable we can be of our partners' sobriety levels or enthusiasm, the better, right?

  8. A Few Londoners Accidentally Signed Away Their First-Born Children for Free WiFi

    Did they get the kids back if they guessed that the password was "Rumpelstiltskin"?

    Digital security firm F-Secure gave a big F-you to EULAs with a WiFi hotspot publicity stunt that allowed for free WiFi access as long as users agreed to its terms and conditions, which included giving away the rights to their first-born children. A few users agreed, possibly proving they didn't read the agreement, they're not that interested in kids, or they had some really important tweets to send.

  9. Please Tell Everyone We Use Our Whole Brains and Not Just 10%, Thanks

    Maybe it's that only 10% of people use their brains at all?

    If only someone would've told the Lucy screenwriters before... no. Now that I think about it, that probably wouldn't have helped the movie.
