Sometimes you think you’ve got life in palm of your hand. Sometimes you think you’ve got it all figured out. Sometimes you just want to run out the clock because whatever it is, it’s in the bag.

Other times, you’re just wrong.

That’s what happened to this poor basketball player who thought his team was winning, so he ran out the clock — he was just wrong.

In last night’s game against Brown University, Bryant University’s Ikenna Ndugba must’ve missed the tie-breaking point in the last 10 seconds because they were still down one point. Thinking that he just had to run out the clock, Ndugba decided to just dribble out the clock and, well, ouch.

They say you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, and it’s rarely been more true than here.

This ain’t fake news. It’s fun news.

On their blog, the Facebook team wrote:

We’ve made it very simple to start playing: In the latest version of the app, open a conversation with a friend (or friends!), tap on the game controller icon just below where you type your message, and choose a game to start playing right away. After you finish a round, people in the conversation will see your score and will have the opportunity to challenge you back. People can also discover games within the Messenger search field, or on Facebook News Feed where they can play solo or challenge friends back in Messenger.

They also write that “1 billion people use messenger every month,” so you can expect for Earth’s collective productivity to drop by a seventh.

Instant Games is available today. Check out Facebook’s blog for more info.

Phew. President-Elect Donald Trump’s transition into the White House has been a blast. We’ve already gone through his conflicts of interests and new hat, but the big, Big, BIG thing on the Internet today has been Trump’s little stab at the First Amendment, arguably the second most-popular amendment behind the right to bear arms.

In an ill-advised tweet at 4am, his favorite time to decree something “Sad!” (though, not his favorite time to RT and agree with a 16-year-old—that would be 6pm), that billionaire reality TV game show host who won the presidency a few weeks ago tweeted that there should be consequences to flag burning, like maybe “perhaps loss of citizenship or a year in jail.”

Of course, flag burning is constitutionally permitted under the aforementioned First Amendment, so Twitter decided to remind our 45th president with the hat of this fact. Let’s just hope responding to tweets will be constitutionally permitted under the aforementioned First Amendment after January 20, he wrote in terror.

America is the land of inaccurate, outdated, and totally worthless measuring systems. While the U.S.A is one of three countries to scoff at the metric systes (along with our dudes Liberia and Myanmar), we also use a little thing called Fahrenheit when measuring temperature.

The U.S.A and its associated territories is one of five countries to use Fahrenheit (along with our dudes the Bahamas, Belizem, the Caymen Islands, and Palau), but why do we use this outdated system and where did it come from?

This handy video from the YouTube channel Veritasium answers at least one of those questions. Turns out it has origins a lot like Batman. When a young scientist’s parents die suddenly, he goes on the run and becomes obsessed with cool science gadgets. From there, he starts fighting crime, and by crime, I mean inconvenient and inaccurate temperature scales. Anyway, it makes sense in the video.

It’s entertaining, interesting, and as always will make you smarter than anyone in the room.

President-Elect Donald Trump, the billionaire reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency in November, is a busy guy. Between tweeting that citizens should be jailed for exercising free speech and trying on new hats, he’s also a wheelin’ and dealin’ business man.

Over the past few weeks, you might have heard something about a few of Trump’s “conflicts of interest,” i.e. he’s not supposed to be doing Trump business stuff while he’s doing Trump president stuff because the constitution. When it comes to things like this, it can be hard to follow due to the fact that business is boring. Thankfully, we have The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, who put together this awesome segment explaining Trump’s conflicts of interest.

Check it out and enjoy the next four years, America!
