Have you ever been alone late at night and dreamed of your lover’s sweet embrace, your lips longing for their's? Did you dream of a cold, lifeless machine that could replicate the feeling of your lips touching?

Dreams come true.

The Kissenger machine, developed by researchers from the Imagineering Lab at City Unviersity in London, allows you to plug your iPhone into a holster that looks like it has a sponge or something on it. You kiss the sponge and “high precision force sensors” measure the “dynamic forces at different parts of your lips during a kiss." Then the machine transmits those measurements via the Kissenger iOS app. Your partner recieves the kiss, and persumbly enjoy it. Yup,  totally normal and not weird or sad.

Ok. Let’s see who the website says this is for:

Now you can kiss your favorite pop star, and they can indulge in your weird fantasy of kissing them. Fine. Let’s see what else is on this site. This picture:

Great. Yeah, all this seems on the level.

The Kissenger is still just a prototype and requires a headphone jack to plug into their weird kissing sponge, which means iPhone 7 users are safe for now.

Back in the 1980s, Coca Cola was in trouble. Sales were down as America went crazy for the taste of a new generation, Pepsi, and wanted desperately to be accepted by Generation Next.

Oh, to be a part of Generation Next, with their skateboards and aluminum jackets.

Coke actually realized that if it wasn’t for their lucrative contracts with distributors, Pepsi would be killing them in sales. This coupled with the fact that people, somehow, preferred the taste of Pepsi and even the gross Diet Coke to the all-american classic taste of Coke in taste tests — because focus groups are filled with complete mad mee. So Coke decided that they needed to update the taste of Coke and introduced New Coke.

What happened next will shock you…

People liked old Coke and wanted it back.

But how it got there is one of the most interesting marketng misteps in history. 

Check out the video for the history of why we went back to old Coke and still enjoy Blue Pepsi.

Tribute of the Day: RIP Debbie Reynolds, The World Says “Thank You”

Debbie Reynolds, singer, dancer, and actress of Singin’ in the Rain, died last night at the age 84, mere hours after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher. One of Hollywood’s biggest stars in the 50s and 60s, she received an Oscar nomination for The Unsinkable Molly Brown in 1964 and continued to appear on stage and screen well into the 21st century. If you aren’t familiar with her face, you’ve probably heard Reynolds’ voice on some of your favorite cartoons, including Rugrats, Family Guy, and as the voice of Charlotte in 1973’s classic adaptation of Charlotte’s Web.

And like in Fisher’s death just two days ago, the world mourns the loss of another beloved actor, with many posting tributes to Reynolds on Twitter.

Watch a clip from Singin’ in the Rain and read some of the tributes to Debbie Reynolds below.

There are a lot of videos of people passing out on rollercoasters. There are a lot of videos of people making weird noises on rollercoasters. But there’s only one video where the Windows startup music plays every time this guy passes out on a rollercoaster. 

Let’s just say this video delivers. It’s 60, uninterrupted seconds of a man in a pink shirt passing out on a rollercoaster. What’s more, every time he passes out, get this, the Windows startup music plays.

Passes Out

To paraphrase Men’s Warehouse founder George Zimmer, you’re gonna love watching this video. I guarantee it.

Bloop lovers, rejoice! News Be Funny has released their compilations of the best news bloopers of the year. The year 2016 didn't dissapoint. 

Yup, over the last 365 days, we sure have spent a lot of time being afraid of the news. I, for one, have to take several deep breaths before loading up Twitter in the morning. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and enjoy the times newscasters accidentally said the word “fart on air,” had their microphones thrown in a lake, or got drunk and told the kids at home that they couldn’t be whatever they wanted when they grow up. The magic of live television.

This is truly what this year has been leading to, and it is glorious. 

Not enough bloops? Here’s part one:

Stressed? Anxious? Worried? It’s quite common to be filled with existential dread this time of year, what with the holidays and New Years and all. It can be a lot. 

Well, it’s time to get back to basics and remember what it’s all about. Take anywhere from 10 seconds to the rest of your life checking out the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam, which is live right now on YouTube.

This should be enough to chill you out and get through the rest of this hellhole of a year.
