As if Über’s problems with sexual contact in their cars weren’t bad enough, now they’re politely asking their passengers to stop being so creepy.

QZ points out that, since it’s release, many people were using Über Pool as a place hook up. They write, “Pundits called ride-sharing cars the 'four-wheeled yentas,' 'the new Tinder,' and, you know, a way 'to get laid now.' One driver ran a dating game show in his car.” This comes hot off numerous, awful accounts of people complaining about drivers making unwanted sexual advances on passengers, and the company not doing much about it.

The ride-sharing company has updated their Community Guidelines, particularly those using Über Pool, asking passengers to “give riders and drivers personal space”:

We all value our personal space and privacy. It’s OK to chat with other people in the car. But please don’t comment on someone’s appearance or ask whether they are single. As a passenger, if you need to make a phone call, keep your voice down to avoid disturbing your driver or other riders. And don’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Über has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct between drivers and riders, no matter what.

Whether or not this will actually help Über’s problem with sexual contact is still unknown, but until then, Über would like to remind you that its service is not Tinder, so just use Tinder, you creeps.

Fyrkantig, Sparsam, Dagstorp, Grundtal. Unless you speak Swedish, these words can only mean one thing: Ikea.

But no more. Ikea, who for years has named their comfortable, affordable, and dorm room-ready furniture by following a pretty strict system, is now in the trolling business, and business is good.

Last night, for reasons unknown, so for now we’ll just assume that they thought it would be funny, Ikea replaced the names of their products with common Google searches. So suddenly a thing like Lattjo becomes “My Family Doesn’t Respect Me” and Memnes becomes “My Friend Only Talks About Himself.”

This is all apart of “Ikea's Retail Therapy.” Through this site, Ikea doesn’t just furnish your apartment with practical and fashionable Swedish goods, but also fixes your life — or, at least, gives you something to buy, so you can forget about your actual problems. Check it out.

America, we’re losing. We never win anymore. Look at New Zealand who just invented the chocolate manicure. They’re innovating. We never innovate anymore.

What do we have? Apple Computers? What have they ever done? Apple Watch? How long did that take? Bustle is reporting that a YouTuber named Jessie aka NaileditNZ, out of the blue, went a “wee bit crazy,” and made edible nails. All it took was a tube of squeezable icing and some silver balls.

When was the last time America has done anything this chill? Maybe never. Sure, we’ve been to the moon, but that was, like, forever ago.

And Jessie is so nonchalant about this. After spending a little while on the project, she decides that it isn’t worth it to let them set and decides to eat the nails, which she describes as tasting “good.” It’s like she didn’t even car that much about this massive innovation.

Come on. That is so green, too. So Jessie is making nails that are fashionable, edible, and reduces our carbon footprint.

What’s America doing? Losing. Shame.

austria picks word of the year and its really long bundespraesidentenstichwahlwiederholungsverschiebung

Austria has picked their word of the year, reminding us all how smart they are, using big words like that.

Their word of the year is, say it with me, “Bundespraesidentenstichwahlwiederholungsverschiebung”

Ok. So unless you speak German, you probably can’t say it, but it has a very specific meaning. It means “postponement of the repeat of the runoff of the presidential election.”

According to Associated Press, “Bundespraesidentenstichwahlwiederholungsverschiebung” was “was born of the record time it took to elect Austria’s president, and was announced following a poll of 10,000 people carried out by the Research Unit for Austrian German at the University of Graz, in cooperation with the Austria Press Agency.”

It really shouldn’t come as much as surprise that the meaning of the word is as confusing as saying the word itself.

A word like this will have you pining for the days when Dictionary.com named “Xenophobia” Word of the Year. Wait, no it won’t.

jon call weightlifter makes gains deadlifting 495 pounds while on rollerblades

The olympics are done. How do we know? Because weightlifter Jon Call just shut them down by deadlifting 495 pounds in rollerblades.

A video posted by Jon Call (@jujimufu) on

Call, with his long blond hair reminiscent of Thor, the god of thunder, blades into the gym, does a cool spin move and a little march, and deadlifts 495 pounds three times, before skating away, giggling over the world he has just conquered. Fear not, mortals, for he is a benevolent god who likes Michael Jackson.

Sure, you can see any old human deadlifting hundreds of pounds in the olympics, but how often do you seem them do it in rollerblades. Sorry, 2016 Olympic Gold-Medalist Lasha Talakhadze, but either get some blades on or stay home.

Jon Call does all sorts of things to prove that he’s a god, like carrying a couple hundred pounds over a fire in a horse mask and lifting at Thanksgiving dinner. If you're feeling an intense religious terror. Don't panic. That just means your still human, so check out the rest on Jon's Instagram.

Wouldn’t it be great if your car could scream along with you in traffic, frustrate you when you’re lost, or whine when it needs some gas? Your wish is Honda’s command!

According to The Washington Post, “Japanese automaker Honda will showcase a concept car at the Consumer Electronics Show next month that is capable of understanding the driver’s emotions and developing emotions of its own.”

Drivers with road rage are gonna love this thing.

The car will harness “the power of artificial intelligence, robotics, and big data to transform the mobility experience,” says Honda (as well as every mad scientist in a movie about A.I. ever, but that’s besides the point). The concept car, called the NeuV, comes equipped with an “emotion engine,” an artificial intelligence that isn’t powered by your emotions, but rather learns from them.

“Honda expects the car will ‘grow up’ with its driver and share in his or her experiences, prompting the driver to feel the car ‘has become a good partner and thus form a stronger emotional attachment toward it,’” said The Washington Post in a terrifying sentence.

Honda will showcase this new concept car at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show; though, it is unknown when it will be available for purchase, so the war against man and machine will begin.
