In preparation for the anniversary of the 1989 Tianamen Square protests, Chinese censors reportedly blocked several search terms on the country's top microblogging site Sina Weibo, including "1989," "in today," "anniversary" and "big yellow duck." The odd water fowl reference was banned in response to a viral photoshopped version of the iconic 1989 photograph "Tank Man," which Weibo user Weibolg altered by replacing the tanks with superimposed photos of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman's famous Rubber Duck floating sculpture.

Google is investing "hundreds of thousands of dollars" in virtual-reality (VR) films and programs they want to put exclusively on their new hybrid store/software service called Daydream, which will debut in a few weeks.



They have quietly recruited web and YouTube stars like the Donal twins, Justine Ezarik, and more, and partnered with video game producers and sports leagues for the biggest VR initiative they've ever invested in.



Your Android will get a push rolled out on Monday to support Daydream, so we will soon get a chance to evaluate it for ourselves. I know i'm pretty psyched to try out being a first-person VR dino-killer in Island 359.

In a WIN for every internet user, everywhere, Google has announced that they are going to rank sites that use pop-ups and interstitials further down the results page. They want to discourage behaviors where the content isn't "easily accessible."

The changes will go into effect next January, so in the meantime, try not to throw your computer out the window because of idiot new policies like Facebook's new one, forcing autoplay videos in its iOS and Android apps.


So, in the meantime, just follow the instructions above to keep your sanity.

Jay Jones of the Chicago Tribune lucked into finding what could be the secret recipe of "11 Herbs and Spices" that make up Kentucky Fried Chicken. What do you think, could this be the real deal:



Apparently white pepper was super rare back in Kentucky in the 50's, so that was a HUGE secret back then.


Who knew anything white was kept a secret in Appalachia?

Call us Floaters and We'll Still Party Harder Than You

Some Americans accidentally invaded Canada this weekend when about 1500 folks in floats got pushed off-course by strong winds, pushing them onto the Ontario side of the St. Clair River in Michigan.

Unwilling to share their Molson, the Canadians insisted on bussing everyone back to the border to U.S. Customs:



We can guarantee they kept the party going once they got back on U.S. soil, because #Merica'!




Remember, this is the land that, until recently, was known as the "land of rape and honey."

Oh Canada, you do keep trying, don't you?
