You can (pumpkin) spice up your life by chatting directly with a PSL Bot on Facebook Messenger.



Despite attempts, the bot stays kinda boring and clean and pretty stupid, but it was still fun to see what it threw out at me throughout the convo:

trending back to school news chrome extension adds study notes help

If you're like me, you hate online ads. If you're also like me, you really don't study enough...





Well, the new Chrome extension V Energy AdNotes aims to help with all of that by replacing any ads on your webpages with study notes you can set up yourself. It takes a second or two to take over an ad, but then you can have whatever text or image you want appear there, like notes for an upcoming test:



They describe the extension like this:

"V AdNotes will help improve your study a bit by turning forgettable ads into memorable study notes.

It puts your study notes where ads usually go, so you're studying no matter what you do on the internet…


[insert porn gif here]

Just input your colour-coded subjects and add as many study notes as you like. You can turn your subjects on and off depending on what you're studying, and preview how each study note will look in the major banner ad sizes.

Now browse all the cat memes and autocorrect fails you like, because you'll be studying, a bit, the whole time."






This might just help me pass Scalable Architecture 101. Get it in the Chrome store here.

In a modern moment of fear/paranoia, people heard a loud noise at LAX and spread word all over social media that there was an "active shooter" running around the airport, but thankfully, there wasn't, and the noise was just "something loud" that is currently unexplained.

But as people read RUMORS all over social media that an active shooter was present, chaos, fear and panic erupted as folks ran from three different terminals to escape to safety:



Somewhere in all the chaos, a man dressed as Zorro and wielding a plastic sword, got arrested :




Remember, use social media responsibly. Rumors help no one, but can hurt a lot.

Britney, that is. And she came out in full effect.



Everyone agreed that she killed it.




3. Kanye debuted a decent piece of music and HOT video in "Fade"

After an incoherent, motivational, rambling introduction, Kanye shocked the room with a HOT Flash Dance-themed video starring the uber-hot Teyana Taylor.

Check it for yourself here:



4. Beyonce.

She swept the awards, including Video of the Year for "Formation."

In a pretty-much universally offensive Photoshop FAIL, Vogue Brazil decided to superimpose disabilities on their own able-bodied models in a promotion for the Paralymics instead of using ACTUAL Paralympians.



The Paralympians were okay with it...



...but we're still not. We'd rather see more barrier-breaking pics of these AMAZING athletes:

Al Roker, America's favorite formerly-portly weatherman, just lost his shit on international tv, calling Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte a liar, for the lies Lochte recently told about being attacked at gun point in Rio. Which he wasn't. Which makes that a lie. Which makes Lochte a liar.



Lochte, the liar, even admitted to "embellishing the truth" in an interview with Matt Lauer.



Read more about the drama here.

For his punishment, Lochte is getting his own turn on Dancing With the Stars, while other Olympians who created international incidents are actually getting in real trouble for wrongdoing.

Falkirk Outdoors education officer/photographer Craig McLaren had an encounter with a mindfuck of biting midges in the Cairngorm mountains in the eastern Highlands of Scotland:



Thankfully, Google and the National Parks Service today offered up free 360-degree tours of the National Parks. Coincidence, I think not.

I'm staying indoors after that shit.
