Innovative weed pipe has a built-in cereal bowl. Whhhaaaaa?

TwitterFacebook

Smoking weed and eating cereal go together like peanut butter and jelly, so why not do both at the same time?

Cannabis technology has boomed since recent legalization, but among the various
THC extraction processes and fancy vapes, there is a new bowl that can do something all others can’t: hold food like a food bowl.

Yes, some genius decided to combine a glass weed pipe, commonly called a bowl, with a food bowl, creating a very important mythical stoner invention. Here you have it: the Breakfast Bowl Wake ‘n’ Bake Pipe.

The pipe has been somewhat of an internet legend for many years, but wasn’t actually available to purchase anywhere, so creator Ryan Hart decided to make his own and sell it to the world for $89Read more…

AirAsia X flight shook like a ‘washing machine’ following mid-air problem

TwitterFacebook

An AirAsia X flight bound for Kuala Lumpur was forced to turn back on Sunday, after a mid-air technical issue left the plane’s cabin shaking like a “washing machine.”

Flight D7237 with 359 passengers onboard left Perth at 6:50 a.m. local time, then returned to Perth by 10 a.m., after what reportedly seemed to be a problem with an engine.

“I heard a loud explosion I think on the left-side engine,” passenger Tzeyau Chung told ABC News.

“After the explosion it started to shake, it started to bounce, but overall the captain did a very good job. Of course we were a bit worried but at the end of the day … we safely landed. I think that is the most important thing.” Read more…

TwitterFacebook

The next season of Westworld is still a long ways away, but that doesn’t mean the cast isn’t hard at work putting together the next installment of robots vs. humans drama. 

We got our first sort-of-peek at Westworld Season 2 on Friday thanks to show regular James Marsden. The actor, who plays one of the pivotal robot characters on Westworld, took to Instagram to show off some of his gunslinging skills.

Tesla may launch its own music streaming service because, well, why not

TwitterFacebook

Why dip your toes into the plebeian pool of music streaming services when you can have your own private aural sauna?

That appears to be the question Tesla is asking, with reports suggesting the electric car company is exploring launching a music streaming service for its vehicles. That’s right, it looks like Tesla just might fancy its customers a bit too hifalutin’ for the likes of Spotify or Apple Music. 

The details, as reported by Recode, are light. Even so, they’re enough to send a jolt of excitement through every Tesla fanboy already growing weary of the Insane button and Bioweapon Defense Mode. Here’s the deal: Tesla is allegedly chatting with all the major music labels about a proprietary music streaming service for its cars.  Read more…

Adorable little dog was reportedly saved by mouth-to-nose resuscitation

TwitterFacebook

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who knows doggy CPR, so when man’s best friend is in trouble, improvisation is key.

Glenn Rowe, a farmer from Wimmera in Australia, claimed he saved the life of his kelpie Jack when the dog was lifeless after accidentally strangling himself on a lead attached to a quad bike.

“I thought crikey, he’s not looking too good, he was all glassy eyed — yeah, he was cactus,” Rowe told radio station 3AW.

Rowe leapt into action by giving the dog a bit of improvised CPR. The farmer pumped him on the chest, which wasn’t effective. So then he started blowing into his nose. Read more…

Friendly koala walks into a restaurant full of diners like it’s NBD

TwitterFacebook

It’s not always like this in Australia, but a koala walking into a restaurant is definitely something that could only happen Down Under.

As one did at Genghis Khan Mongolian BBQ in suburban Adelaide on Monday night, according to The Advertiser

The very chill koala wandered in from the carpark into the restaurant, where bemused patrons couldn’t help but snap photos. Xenia Ioannou, who dubbed the koala “Jeffrey,” filmed the moment and posted it on Facebook. 

“Some people were shocked, some just carried on eating,” Ioannou told the newspaper. “Being up close to nature and seeing a wild animal was unbelievable.” Read more…

Australians have the best foul mouths, and these dash cam reactions prove it

TwitterFacebook

Call us biased, but we’ll say it now, and we’ll say it again: Australians really know how to swear.

And there’s no other situation that can test the perspicacity of one’s foul mouth than a near miss or dealing with bad behaviour on the road, as evidenced in this reaction compilation put together by the folks at Dash Cam Owners Australia.

It goes without saying, but the video contains plenty of coarse language. Read more…

The ‘peanut worm’ is amusing the internet, and no prizes for guessing why

TwitterFacebook

How unsurprising: Everyone on the internet is immature.

A group of Australian researchers from Museum Victoria and the CSIRO — the nation’s scientific research agency — have just completed a month-long journey along the eastern coast of the country, keeping a record of what oddities lurk deep beneath the oceans.

Along the way they’ve found this nightmare-inducing faceless fish, but they also happened upon this “peanut worm,” and there’s no prizes for guessing what it happens to look like.

You can watch the last glorious Adam West cameo in this unaired episode of ‘Powerless’

TwitterFacebook

Adam West may have passed away last week, but memorials to the iconic Batman actor continue to pour in.  

Along with the flood of tributes from his peers and admirers on social media and the touching Bat-signal display on the Las Angeles City Hall building, West’s last media appearances are making the internet rounds.   

The actor, who died at 88 from complications from leukemia, kept busy up until the end, as he was almost as famous for his career’s second act poking fun of and referencing the persona he created with his most famous role — but his final TV appearance, a cameo on NBC’s Powerless, never aired after the show was cancelled before it finished its first season.  Read more…

Bright pink houses attract crowds looking for the perfect selfie, and the neighbors are pissed

TwitterFacebook

These houses in Los Angeles are so pink the entire internet seems to have noticed. Everything from the walkway to the hedges to the trash bins are bright pink.

It’s not a permanent look. The vacant LA homes are part of a large-scale art piece, and they’re being demolished to make way for a new housing complex

Neighbors are not pleased with the stunt and the “noise” they are attracting. Everyone wants to pose with the absurdly pink structures, as you can tell by browsing photos on Instagram tagged with #pinkhouses.

We can finally see inside the VIP world of Tinder Select and it’s… meh?

TwitterFacebook

The world first learned about the existence of Tinder Select earlier this year, but details have been hard to come by. Until now. 

Thankfully, Business Insider reporter Nathan McAlone managed to wrangle himself entrance into dating’s most exclusive club. And what he uncovered is…underwhelming. At least when compared to the VIP booth jammed with A-listers and unimaginably hot people that we’d all envisioned.

He reports that visually, not all the much is different. It’s not a separate area, rather your feed is the same, just with a few different colors. Other Selects show up and are labeled, but otherwise it’s basically your normal Tinder. Read more…

Car horns are weirdly aggressive, so this guy made a friendlier version

TwitterFacebook

Driving can already be stressful enough, and it’s not helped by the plethora of aggressive-sounding horns standard in most cars.

Fortunately, YouTuber Mark Rober has come up with the “nicest car horn ever,” a higher-pitched honk that toots twice quickly. 

It’s for situations where you want to show courtesy, like if a driver forgets something on their roof, or you want a car to move forward in the drive-thru.

But for more pressing situations, there’s a horn that bellows like an ocean liner — perfect when you want to warn some pesky kids off the road. Car makers, it’s not a bad idea. Read more…

Nancy Pelosi trolled Trump with this offer to the Golden State Warriors

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi invited the Golden State Warriors to the U.S. Capitol the day after they beat Cleveland for the NBA championship

That might seem random at first blush, but it was actually a way for Pelosi to indirectly engage in one of her favorite pastimes: trolling President Donald Trump. 

The @Warriors‘ leadership is inspiring. I’d be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol#DubNation

‘Detroit: Become Human’ lets you shape your story in an inhuman world

TwitterFacebook

Detroit: Become Human imagines a future Earth in which androids are an everyday commodity. And then, those androids rebel.

This is the latest game from Quantic Dream, the French studio behind the likes of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. Much like Detroit, those two previous games emphasize choice in a way that few others do. Characters die, subplots change, and all of it is your doing.

We don’t know much more about Detroit now than we did when Sony showed it off last year at E3. There’s still no release date, nor even a release window. The big takeaway from this trailer? Jesse Williams, of Grey’s Anatomy fame, appears to be in it. Read more…
