Rumor has it that the Dalai Lama is still laughing to this day.
The virtual world was stormed by unexpected silence, when an angry ex-Twitter employee hacked and deactivated Donald Trump's Twitter account as his departing act (or gift?). Naturally, rumors ran wild over who might've done such a thing; but DJ Trump himself decided to finally break his silence on the matter, and smoothly segue from there into nothing short of a tweet storm to compensate for the momentary silence on his end.
Young people definitely get some interesting criticism in the news, like all the times Millennials have Killed an Industry, so this doesn't seem like much of a departure. In an interview on housing rights in Britain, a news anchor and landlord "reported" that young people don't have the skills to rent, since they don't know how to change lightbulbs or do basic tasks. This ruffled some feathers among young people and tenants.
When news of a couple Harvard scientists thinking there's some extraterrestrial scrap and/or "light sail" cruising by Earth, you pause your Mass Effect 2 and listen up. The internet's abuzz with all kinds of competing theories on the mad scientists from Harvard's theory; but it boils down to the undeniable likelihood that it's an odd cigar-shaped asteroid, which could by a sliver of a chance be alien junk. That sliver of a chance is enough to get the juices of the collective extraterrestrial-oriented science community, flowing. I'd still love (I think?) to end up reading about how this space cigar is some sort of alien light sail (cargo hold ship), but the odds are not in our favor at the moment. So, keep the tin foil hat stashed for now, and continue planning your next retreat to Area 51 to gather more evidence. Maybe they've already accumulated a collection of the Milky Way's finest space cigars.
Robert O'Neill's a former Navy Seal who participated in the raid on Osama bin Laden, and he claims he was the one who fired the bullets that actually killed him. On Thursday, O'Neill took to Twitter to rage on President Trump for giving marching orders to the Pentagon, to put on a show of strength in the streets of Washington.
Comedian Shane Hoban has had better days. So was a former date who got a lot more than she bargained for after telling the Boston resident that she didn't wish to pursue a relationship with him. Her respectful text is honest and even generously nice. She even wishes him luck at his upcoming show. That kindness is met with alarming aggression, abusive language, and disturbing threats. Fortunately the internet has helped make sure Hoban gets what is coming to him.
