Have you heard of this musical Hamilton that’s lighting up Broadway? Have you heard of Broadway, the Great White Way?

Good.

Have you seen this thing? Heard the soundtrack? Boycotted it? Actively ignored it? Whatever it is, people love it, and at long last, there’s more Hamilton. Sort of.

At midnight last night, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton’s creator and star, dropped The Hamilton Mixtape, a new album of rappers and pop-stars reinterpreting the songs from Hamilton. And surprise, people are losing it.

Check out some of the best reactions to the mixtape while listening to it here.

Music,Hamilton

As we’ve heard over the past few days, that billionaire reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month, Donald Trump, will soon bring us to complete dystopia: He can mass text all of America at once.

Through the FCC’s Wireless Emergency Alerts, Trump can text all of America at the same time, probably to schedule New Year’s Eve plans that take a month to coordinate but go no where. The system is devised for emergencies, according to New York Magazine, but as we know, Trump is very trigger happy when it comes to his phone. We all look forward to seeing 300 million messages all reading “How do I get out of this group text” and “New phone who dis?”

Luckily, Stephen Colbert is already on it over at The Late Show, delivering a hilarious monologue about the president elect’s new found phone privileges. Check it out.

Uhhhh… ok.

Here’s, um, something from the Internet. We’re not totally sure what it is, but we’re pretty sure that it’s weird and cool.

These beautiful/horrible images come from users of the Russian website “Ostagram," using an art technique known as “Inceptionism.” Inceptionism is where “images are combined using neural networks to generate a singe mind-bending picture,” says Bored Panda.

Now, if that doesn’t totally make sense, you’re not alone. Bored Panda goes on to explain a little bit of this process, which is, admittedly, totally weird images:

“A neural network is a computational model based on the structure of a biological neural network. In other words, it works like a human brain. Conventional software operates within strict parameters but artificial neural networks have the ability to "learn" by being fed more and more data over time.
“The images are possible thanks to DeepDream software, which finds and enhances patterns in images by a process known as algorithmic pareidolia. It was pioneered by Google and was originally code-named Inception after the film of the same name. And looking at these pictures, it’s easy to see why.”

Check out some the craziest pictures below, and if you’re still hungry for more, check out Ostagram.

Lots of people have their own interpretation of heaven, but we can all agree that most of them look like Dubai’s inflatable waterpark, right?

The German manufacturer Wibit Sports installed the new waterpark “dubaiTAG” on Jumeriah Beach in September, and now that we’ve seen this video, we’re trying to get there ASAP. The water jungle gym is “composed of almost 100 modular components that have been arranged into the word D-U-B-A-I to create a giant water park.” In total, the structure, which sits on heavy PVC floating materials, is over 250 feet long and 114 feet wide.

That park can hold 200 people at a time, is attracting tourists and locals, and calls my name.

Puns. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, people will continue to make ‘em

Which is the only explanation for the black hole of the Internet, the Gyllenhall, so welcome to Gyllenhell.

But what is the Gyllenhall?

Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like, a neverending hallway lined with pictures of Jake Gyllenhall. All that can be heard in the Gyllenhall, Jake’s famous line from Brokeback Mountain, which taunts you over the computer speakers:

via GIPHY

We wish we knew how to quit you, Jake, but we cannot.

I guess a better question is why is the Gyllenhall? What is it doing here? Why are we forced down its eternal path? The light fixtures above offer little clues to its origin. No, much like 2001: A Space Odyssey’s The Monolith, we are left to ponder the Gyllenhall and, hopefully, come out the other side evolved.

“I wish I knew how to quit you.”

But there is no quitting the Gyllenhall. Once you’ve started down its unending course, you either become the Gyllenhall or the Gyllenhall becomes you.

There is only question that remains: Would it kill you to post a picture of Maggie Gyllenhall once in a while?

23 pound canadian lobster king louie freed

The idea of a giant lobster should send a shiver down your spine. It should have you sharpening your pitchfork and lighting a torch to get this monster as far away from the countryside, where its reign of terror knows no bounds, as possible.

But that’s not how they do things in Canada. When they have a monster lobster problem, they do the nice thing, the polite thing, the Canadian thing: They set it free.

King Louie, the giant 23-pound, 100-year-old lobster, was just lucky enough to be caught in Nova Scotia, and because of his local celebrity, he was purchase and freed yesterday. Never to be glazed in butter nor kill innocent victims with his hefty pinchers, King Louie returned to the deep to stalk.

Costing roughly $230, King Louie was purchased by a compassionate woman who wanted to see this lobster go free. It was polite, yes, but also dangerous. For somewhere, out in the deep, this ancient beast waits for his next victim.

sydney australia high schoolers make daraprim martin shkreli pharmabro drug 2 dollars

Sometimes teenagers are the best.

When they aren't striking fear into your hearts because they know how powerful they are, they’re doing things like heckling American prince Eric Trump — still the best news item of the year.

And teens keep getting better this year as a high school science class in Sydney, Austrailia just recreated the pill Daraprim, which infamous pharmabro Martin Shkreli hiked to $750 last year, for a measly $2. 

via GIPHY

According to the Washington Post, after  Alice Williamson, a postdoctoral teaching fellow at the University of Sydney, “couldn’t stop thinking” about what Shkreli did, she teamed up with Sydney Grammar to see if she could get some students to make the drug cheaper.

“In February, the group of students began spending about an hour before and after school working to recreate the drug, with the help of their science teachers, using a recipe from a patent. They posted all of their work online periodically through Open Source Malaria, which allowed scientists to provide them with guidance and feedback.

“The students spent about $15 on the material needed to produce 3.7 grams of Daraprim — about $100,000 worth of the drug in the U.S. market, Williamson said.”

Shkreli, you know that guy who spends most of his time exploiting very sick people and then smiling about it, didn’t seem too impressed though.
