Peter Dinklage (AKA Tyrion from Game of Thrones) hosted SNL over the weekend. "Space Pants" was pretty good, but his best skit had to be this spoof of Naked & Afraid with Leslie Jones.
A man created this creepy, lifelike Scarlett Johansson robot with some ingenuity and a 3D printer. Actually, he didn't explicity create a ScarJobot, he based the likeness off a Hollywood celebrity who he does not want to name. But we can make a pretty good guess....
So the likeness is...weird but it seems like the creator, Ricky Ma, is a true robot enthusiast. He says he really just wanted to build a robot and it took a long time (and $50,000) to acquire the parts and skills to come this far. He told the Daily Mirror:
When I started building it, I realised it would involve dynamics, electromechanics and programming. I have never studied programming, how was I supposed to code?
Additionally, I needed to build 3D models for all the parts inside the robot. Also, I had to make sure the robot's external skin and its internal parts could fit together. When you look at everything together, it was really difficult.
This 'Cool Mom', in Florida of course, arranged for a stripper to be the entertainment for her son's 8th birthday party. That's right, the child was turning 8-years old, and she got him a stripper.
New York has a pretty bad reputation for having rats in the subway without having one crawl up on a guy's shoulder and try to get cozy with him. New York city cops have recently stressed that "Subways are not for sleeping". They claim it's to reduce the chance of theft but it looks like there's another safety issue that passengers should be aware of.
This issue caused a lot of controversy when British builder Paul Hopkinson originally shared this video on Costa Coffee's Facebook page.
Responses ranged from angry (and very British) to extremely pragmatic. Costa coffee themselves also responded to point out that the larger cup has space at the top and if the smaller cup did too that would equal the difference in size AND that the larger cup has two shots of espresso as opposed to one.

As for the engineer's math, we're going to take his word for it and assume that he's solved the mystery of why both cups seem to hold about the same amount of liquid.
This video was released as part of the $5 million campaign to bring tourists and businesses to Rhode Island. Unless you're from Rhode Island, or maybe Iceland it can be hard to tell that one of these pieces of generic stock footage is actually from the city of Reykjavik.
This scene is not in Rhode Island, it's in front of the Harpa concert hall, which some social media users quickly noticed did not belong there. Officials say the editing company made a mistake and will be fixing it at no additional cost. That doesn't mean it hasn't attracted some ridicule on the internet.
