Re: Blind-test testicle-checking booth:

 

Deals647483: Yeah the privacy and animosity of that booth would be very nice.

I guess the issue would arise when there was an issue and the environment and people controlling the booth aren't trained to consult with the patient or comfort them.

 

 

 

Ah - no thanks - animosity is the last thing I want in a situation like that!





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

The opposite of epic

YouTube Rewind 2018 is officially the most disliked video on YouTube

"To say that this year’s YouTube Rewind didn’t go over well with the YouTube community would be quite an understatement. This year’s Rewind, an annual video made by YouTube that’s supposed to encompass a year in YouTube culture, is officially the most disliked video on the platform. It has more than 10 million dislikes, overtaking Justin Bieber’s 2010 song 'Baby,' which has just under 10 million dislikes. While it took Bieber’s video approximately eight years to rack up that dislike count, YouTube Rewind beat it in closer to eight days."

The Santa Claus Machine

Revolutionary improvements to automation and production may one day create machines able to produce almost anything, quickly and cheaply, and far faster and more varied than modern 3D Printers. Such devices are sometimes known as Santa Claus Machines, Cornucopia Devices, or Clanking Del-Replicators, and today we will examine how likely such technology is, how far off in the future they might be, and what impact they would have on society.

Fun fact: the Russians don't have self-destruct devices in their rockets, so watch out below!

The mid-air explosion was due to excessive stress, when it was almost entirely upside down, pointing at the ground, with engines still at full throttle.

"Feet don't fail me now!"

Honest Government Advert
War on Satire


"The Australian government hates Juice Media, and has proposed an jailable offense (with 2-year prison sentences) for 'impersonating a government agency."

The law carves out an exemption 'solely for genuine satire,' and leaves it up to the government to decide what is, and isn't, 'genuine.'

For more information on Australian government proposing jail terms for satire
