  2. Things We Saw Today: Wear The First Chapter Of Harry Potter In Dress Form!

    But will it read to me in my third grade teacher's voice?

    Rooby Lane, you have indeed outdone yourself. Check out their Etsy page for even more literary goodness.

  3. It’s So Cold That Kentucky Cops Put Out an Arrest Warrant For Frozen‘s Elsa

    ABOUT TIME.

    Normally I'd be all, "Aw, that's cute, look at this police department actually doing something fun and engaging with social media" But at the time of writing it is currently a higher temperature in McMurdo, Antartica than it is in New York City. So I am unironically with you, Harlan City Police Department. Incarceration is too good for this despicable traitor. Someone fetch Ilyn Payne!

  4. You Can Now Appoint a Facebook “Heir” to Run Your Account After You Die

    Surprise! Mortality!

    Rather than continuing to freeze the accounts of deceased users, starting today Facebook is giving members the option to elect a "legacy contact" to handle their profile posthumously.

  5. Feds Have to Pay Woman $134K For Using Her Picture To Catfish Drug Dealers on Facebook

    Hank Schrader would NEVER. Wait... okay, he would.

    The practice of creating false identities to fool others on social media is so widespread that it even has its own hour-long reality drama on MTV, where duped Facebook users tearfully demand explanations from the impostors with which they'd fostered imaginary long-distance connections.

  6. Now You Can Tell Facebook When Your Friends Are Posting Fake News

    All the news that's fit to debunk.

    It happens all the time: you're browsing your Facebook feed when all of a sudden your mom's weird uncle posts a link saying that next week Obama's going to cancel all the gravity and we'll have to sign up for government-sponsored people-leashes to keep us at our desks. You could tell him that's the stupidest thing you've ever heard, but it'll make family reunions awkward. Now, Facebook will do it for you. Score one for not having to talk to other humans

  7. How Well Does Your Computer Know You? Machines May Understand Us Better Than Our Friends or Family

    Time to embrace our robot overlords.

    According to Wu Youyou, lead author on a study published recently in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, "the human-computer interactions depicted in science fiction films such as Her seem to be within our reach." Yay?

  8. Penis-Shaped Play-Doh Toy Ruins Christmas for Uptight People Everywhere

    Since when is penis-making not Play-Doh 101?

    Play-doh had the hard job of doing some damage control on Facebook after what I can only assume was a cock-up in the design phase resulted in a plastic accessory looking less like the Cake Mountain icing maker it was supposed to be and more like a dil-doh.

  9. Facebook Is Sorry That “Year in Review” Reminded You How Crappy 2014 Was

    Unless it was great, in which case they're not sorry at all.

    Let's all just be honest: 2014 was a crappy year. I mean, for me personally, it was actually great, but it was pretty terrible in general. It was so bad, in fact, that Facebook has had to apologize for its Year in Review app, because the auto-generated recaps have been reminding people of things they'd rather forget.

  10. Facebook Stats Show Women Are the Most Vocal Walking Dead Fans

    Girls see more blood than boys.

    The Internet is a vast and wondrous place—and one where, not surprisingly, discourse is often dominated by men.
