Mark Cuban is so chill, you guys.

The billionaire was taking part in a League of Legends show match at the Intel Extreme Masters San Jose on Saturday when he started trash talking the other team.

During an interview (about 1 minute in the video above) he dropped an f-bomb and was informed he would have to pay $15,000, which was OK because it would go to charity.

But then he did it again.

"So if I say it again I have to pay another $15,000?"

You da man, Mark Cuban!

Study of The Day: Pew Research Shows 40 Percent of Millennials Would Censor Offensive Speech

America: Land of the free and home of censorship?

A new study by Pew Research shows that American Millennials are far more likely to support the government banning offensive speech about minority groups than other generations.

Of those aged 18-34, 40 percent support censoring offensive speech.

"We asked whether people believe that citizens should be able to make public statements that are offensive to minority groups, or whether the government should be able to prevent people from saying these things. Four-in-ten Millennials say the government should be able to prevent people publicly making statements that are offensive to minority groups, while 58% said such speech is OK."

Although this statistic might be shocking to some free speech advocates, it really should be taken with a large grain of salt.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans still say "offensive speech" should be allowed. And out of 38 other nations polled, the median was 35 percent.

There's also a difference in education levels and support for limiting speech. Those with a high school degree or less are 9-percentage-points more likely to support censorship.

You can draw your own conclusions with that last statistic.

For his new role in a movie about the real-life whaling ship Essex that was attacked by a whale in 1820, inspiring the book Moby Dick. He had to go on an extreme diet, along with the rest of the cast, to look like a shipwrecked first mate.

Gotta eat the booty like elephant butt?

One curious hyena got the surprise of its life after finding a dead elephant carcass and shoving its head inside the elephant's anus.

It is actually a common scenario for predators to start devouring an animal starting with the booty. But in this case, the hyena maybe should have started elsewhere.

"He got a little bit of a scare from that," says one of the scientists in the video.

Yes, yes he did. We are all scared of elephant buttholes now.

A woman in the UK doesn't give cluck what you think about her obsession with knitting sweaters for her chickens.

She's just happy to help them stay warm this winter.

Nicola Congdon and her mother Ann have been rehoming Battery hens for years now. Battery hens, which spend most of their lives in cages to lay eggs, have trouble acclimating to cold weather once rescued.

So these two animal lovers just knit them tiny, adorable sweaters.

They don't charge anyone who might need a chicken sweater, but they ask that a donation be made to a children's charity in Africa.

Some people as far as Canada have inquired about the sweaters.

Lookin' good, chickens. Lookin' good.
