Hate your job? Have you considered just not going most of the time? 

Apparently, Joaquín García, a 69-year-old Spanish civil servant has been doing just that for the last six years. He was fined $30,000 for not showing up to work when officials finally found out in the process of awarding him for 20 years of service.  

García claims that he did show up to work every day but often left because there was no work to do. He was afraid that if he mentioned it to anyone he would lose his job without being able to find another one. So, instead of explaining his situation, he continued collecting his paycheck and started studying philosophy in his unofficial early retirement.

These Twitter emoji are part of a promotion for that All-Star NBA game. They will be live until Monday morning. You can use them by Tweeting the All-Star's name with a hashtag.

Those following along with the All-Star game can also use these emojis to vote for the MVP by adding #KiaAllStarMVP along with their player of choice.

They also have some amusing personal emojis for the broadcasters as well, although since fan voting only makes up 25% of the decision for MVP it's unlikely the broadcasters will end up getting the award.

This commercial features all kinds of families and reminds us that Valentine's Day can be about celebrating family love too. 

It has candid video of different kinds of people, some adopted, some LGBT coming out to their parents and finding acceptance. All of them lucky enough to be surrounded by people who love them. Who knew graham crackers could be so touching? Just don't watch this in public, it might make you cry. 

Not us, though. We're fine over here, it's just really dusty.

The gameplay looks similar to 'Apples to Apples' or 'Cards Against Humanity'. Players start a comic and the judge picks the winner who had the best punchline. The base game will include 250 cards but they've added a list of tasks for fans to complete to help them meet a stretch goal that will add 30 more cards to every deck.



So far they have met $635,555 of their $10,000 goal. They've already included a 10 card booster pack to every reward and with 27 days to go, the extra stretch goal doesn't seem unrealistic.

Japanese artist Nobumichi Asai created this effect by projecting images onto faces in real time. The features of the user's faces are mapped and tracked and then the 'new face' is projected onto that in a 3D pattern that gives them such a realistic look. 

This kind of 3D projection has also been used to make videos like this one:
