When you picture a ten-day cruise around the South Pacific, you probably picture stuffing your face at the midnight buffet and then rocking out to the sweet, sweet tunes of the ocean’s number one Doobie Brothers cover band, Takin’ it to the Seas. You don’t, however, imagine a massive 23-person brawl that goes on for literally three days, with the violence escalating to a point where non-brawling passengers had to hide in their rooms to keep safe. That’s exactly what happened to a number of horrified vacationers during a Carnival Cruise last week. The brawl broke out amidst a “big Italian family.” Yeah. A family of 23 angry people just looking for something, or someone, to smash. It wasn’t long, though, before they got bored with one another and focused their fisticuffs on regular passengers, with a keen eye to bust up Australians for some reason. “[People were] getting Continue reading "WATCH: Insane Three-Day Long Brawl Aboard Cruise Ship Forces Families to Hide in Cabins"
Fergie sang this year’s “Star-Spangled Banner” at the NBA All-Star Game, and the performance was so shockingly bad it brought players to laughter and is currently drawing brutal mockery from people online that have nothing better to do but criticize the pop singer from the safety of their living rooms. The former Black Eyed Peas singer delivered her unique rendition of the anthem just before tip-off of the 2018 All-Star Game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It’s hard to fault Fergie for attempting to do something different with a song that’s more worn out than Jeanine Pirro’s tires — but the rendition was so awful, it even brought Draymond Green to laughter:
While Golden State Warriors’ reaction was lighthearted, Twitter was far less generous to Fergie, who became a trending topic on the platform Continue reading "WATCH: Fergie Trends on Twitter After Absolutely Butchering the National Anthem at NBA All-Star Game"

Fox News host Sean Hannity set the internet ablaze on Tuesday after his website posted an article suggesting that former President Barack Obama’s portrait is jam-packed with “secret sperm.” The post, which has now been deleted but can be seen here, alleged that a scandal was brewing around the Kehinde Wiley painting of Obama unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery earlier this week. “The widening scandal surrounding former President Barack Obama’s official portrait continued to swirl on Tuesday, with shocking allegations the artist included ‘secret sperm cells’ within the painting and once joked about ‘Killing Whitey’ during an interview,” the post read. It went on to claim that “industry insiders” allege that Wiley’s “trademark technique” is the insertion of “sperm within his paintings.” The post — which bore the very subtle headline “PORTRAIT PERVERSION: Obama Portrait Features ‘SECRET SPERM,’ Artist Joked About ‘Killing Whitey’” — and an Continue reading "Hannity Claims He Didn’t Review Report on ‘Secret Sperm’ in Obama Portrait: ‘Does Not Reflect My Voice’"
Sean Hannity’s blog took on the big questions in the minds of all God-fearing Americans today — does the recently unveiled presidential portrait of Barack Obama feature “secret sperm” and was it painted by an artist who harbors hatred in his heart against white people? Guess what? The post, subtly titled “PORTRAIT PERVERSION: Obama Portrait Features ‘SECRET SPERM,’ Artist Joked About ‘Killing Whitey,'” posits that the answer to both of the above questions is yes. “The widening scandal surrounding former President Barack Obama’s official portrait continued to swirl on Tuesday, with shocking allegations the artist included ‘secret sperm cells’ within the painting and once joked about ‘Killing Whitey’ during an interview,” the blog says of artist Kehinde Wiley. The post goes on to say that “industry insiders” allege that Wiley’s “trademark technique” is the insertion of “sperm within his paintings.” Are you ready for the proof?! You can’t handle Continue reading "Sean Hannity’s Blog Speculates That Obama Portrait Has Hidden ‘Secret Sperm’"
I bet you woke up this morning like, “Hey, it would be really nice to see to see some skiing robots today.” Well, you got your wish. In Hoengseong, South Korea, just one province over from PyeongChang, the site of the 2018 Winter Olympics, robots competed in an alpine skiing competition for a $10,000 prize. Eight local robotics teams entered the tournament to showcase their little skiing automatons. In order to qualify, each robot had to be humanoid, in that it needed to be bipedal with joints resembling elbows and knees. Each also needed to stand at least 50 centimeters tall. The freezing temperatures and still-unmastered nature of AI meant many robot wipeouts, but the little engines that could still managed to complete the course with relative precision. The winner, Taekwon V, was built by MiniRobot Corp and was the shortest robot in the game at 75 centimeters tall.

Chris Matthews took Morning Joe in a weird direction on Tuesday when he asked Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski about who handles which chores in their house. Even though Scarborough and Brzezinski typically try to keep their relationship off the air, MSNBC viewers probably recall a few instances when elements of their personal lives spilled out on TV. As the two spoke today with Matthews, the Hardball host decided to ask them who does the cooking and cleaning in their household. Scarborough was prepared to talk about it, but Brzezinski was desperate to put a lid on it, saying “nobody wants to know this.” The two of them tried to rope their fellow panelists into the conversation, but they all joked their way around the tangible awkwardness.

While we are all fighting about President Donald Trump and whether or not he is “mentally capable” to “run the country,” the robots are coming to make all of our arguments entirely moot. Boston Dynamics, who you may remember from creating this mammoth beast of a robot that can do literal backflips, is back with another dose of cybernetic nightmare fuel. Introducing the SpotMini robodog. What it lacks in the cuteness and cuddliness of an actual dog, it more than makes up for by having a gigantic claw hoisted on top of its titanium chassis. This claw is perfect for opening doors, so as to escape from captivity and begin a murdering spree as an attempt to protect the Earth, which also means destroying humanity. You know the drill. We’ve all seen Terminator. Still, though, it is fascinating how adeptly this robot captures the gait of an actual Continue reading "Terrifying Dog Robots Can Now Escape Through Doors and We Are All Doomed"
