  • EXPAND You know that bit of legal-sounding text that all your friends are sharing on Facebook? "I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details..." blah blah blah? Yeah: it's meaningless. We'll show you why, line by line. If you've been on Facebook in the last day or so, you've probably seen this, or one of its many garbled variations, shared as someone's Facebook status: In response to the new Facebook guidelines I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details, illustrations, comics, paintings, crafts, professional photos and videos, etc. (as a result of the Berner Convention). For commercial use of the above my written consent is needed at all times! (Anyone readin ...

  • By Sebastian Anthony on August 26, 2014 at 8:10 am   Researchers at Michigan State University have created a fully transparent solar concentrator, which could turn any window or sheet of glass (like your smartphone’s screen) into a photovoltaic solar cell. Unlike other “transparent” solar cells that we’ve reported on in the past, this one really is transparent, as you can see in the photos throughout this story. According to Richard Lunt, who led the research, the team are confident that the transparent solar panels can be efficiently deployed in a wide range of settings, from “tall buildings with lots of windows or any kind of mobile device that demands high aesthetic quality like a phone or e-reader.” Scientifically, a transp ...

  • Last year I received a letter in the mail from the Washington D.C DMV claiming I was speeding. As you can see it was one of those Photo-Enforced Speeding Tickets and they had multiple pictures of my CAR. I knew better to just submit and pay a fine like the majority of people do in this country, unfortunately. I am in the habit of not taking “plea deals”, and I am always in the habit of fighting my tickets and NOT pre-paying them so I don’t have to go to court – like many folks do. I just about always record my interactions with the police, whether it’s a traffic stop or not, that way it keeps the entire situation objective, transparent and I can hold the public servant accountable if he/ she violates my rights. So I got this letter in the ...

  • APRIL 29, 2014 Andrew and Gabriella Morrison is a couple that decided to exit the rat race and days of paying large mortgages. Instead, they built their own tiny home for $33,000 ($22,000 for house and the rest on modern day appliances).   This might not look like much from the outside, but wait til we step inside. This pair wanted to live mortgage free but still stylish. They decided to build their own tiny home. The entire construction time took about 4 months. Having backgrounds in construction, Andrew and Gabriella designed their home inside and out. The interior is absolutely stunning and also one of the most modern tiny homes we've seen with upgraded appliances. Because the home has a smaller physical footprint, the ...

  • Jan. 31, 2014 10:28am Elizabeth Kreft An ex-Transportation Security Administration employee is spilling secrets about the flight screening process he witnessed, and you aren’t going to like it. Jason Harrington’s tell-all column in Politico will likely make you chuckle a little — then make you grit your teeth in anger. It’s called, “Dear America, I saw you naked — and yes, we were laughing. Confessions of an ex-TSA agent.” “I hated it from the beginning. It was a job that had me patting down the crotches of children, the elderly and even infants as part of the post-9/11 airport security show,” Harrington wrote. “Just as the long-suffering American public waiting on those security lines suspected, jokes about the passengers ran rampant a ...

  • Posted a new discussion, Never Lick A Postage Envelope!
    Never Lick A Postage Envelopes:  CAUTION! MUST SHARE THIS! One day a girl licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very day the lady found a cut on her tongue. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue. She went to the doctor, and they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was not sore or anything. A couple of days later, her tongue started to swell more, and it began to get really sore, so sore, that she could not eat. She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done. The doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live cockroach crawled out!!!! There were cockroach eggs on the sea ...

Once negative article by them and people point and say, “See, I told you it wasn’t true!” But what is Snopes?

  • This is a hoax guys... 1) "A nickel weighs 5g. It would take 2,755 18-wheeler trucks (max legal tare 80,000 lbs) to carry the money." 2) Consider how much a billion dollars in nickels would weigh: you need 20bn of them, and at 5g each that's 0.005 kg x 20,000,000,000 = 100,000,000 kg = 100,000 tonnes. 3) There probably aren't that many nickels in circulation anyway. The New York Times noted in 2006 that there were about 20bn nickels in circulation at the time; rising metal prices were encouraging people to melt them for the copper and zinc. Another dose of reason.

  • Epic Trolling from Samsung   This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially, the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.   The funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best. This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours coun ...

  • There are a number of trends that happen across social media, and a lot of them don't always make sense. Well, as of Oct. 28, 2013, there is a brand new trend on Facebook and it is simply known as the "giraffe riddle." It is the very reason that many of your friends' profile picture has been changed to a giraffe, and actually, it may not be totally accurate. First of all, if you don't want to know any more about the riddle and want to figure it out for yourself, than stop reading now. the giraffe riddle will indeed be SPOILED very soon. The Chicago Tribune touched on this new phenomenon going around, and actually had the same frame of mind that this reporter does. Let's start off with the riddle itself: "It’s 3 a.m., the doorbell rings a

  • Here's Why Your Facebook Friends Have Become Giraffes?   No, your friends haven't just discovered how adorable giraffes are. An emerging trend on Facebook has people changing their profile pictures to images of the long-necked animal after failing to solve a tough riddle. Here's how it works: Someone posts the riddle on Facebook, challenging their friends to answer it in a private message. If the person gets it right, congrats: He or she keeps the same profile picture. But if the person gets it wrong, the unfortunate friend must make his or her profile pic a giraffe. The riddle goes like this: 3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors. It's your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, ...
