Roy Moore lost the election and everyone made the same joke

TwitterFacebook

Roy Moore is bad at riding horses, and on Tuesday night, he was bad at winning elections. 

Moore lost the Senate race in Alabama to Democrat Doug Jones and a lot of people were happy about it. Moore’s win came as a surprise, as Democrats haven’t fared well in Alabama elections for about a quarter decade.

But back to the horse thing. Here is the Republican candidate — who was endorsed by Donald Trump, even though he’s been accused of sexual misconduct by nine women and said America was last “great” when slavery was legal — trying to play cowboy earlier in the day.  Read more…

Spy agency launches interactive online test to see if you’re cut out for the job

TwitterFacebook

Recruiting spies is seldom a public exercise, but Australia’s intelligence agency is doing something different.

The Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS), equivalent to the CIA and Britain’s MI6, has launched an online interactive test to discover people who are cut out for the job. 

Through a series of visual and aural exercises, the test seeks to identify suitable applicants that have the perception and empathy to work in the service. 

You’ll be required to pick out a missing number from a sequence, pick out faces in a crowd, and try and decipher information while three people are talking at the same time.  Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Elon Musk is quite the hatter. 

Besides running a car company, a space company, a tunnel company and an AI company, he also managed to sell roughly $600,000 worth of hats, and the demand just keeps on rising. 

Musk’s Boring Company sold 30,000 hats adorned with the company logo since they launched in October, Musk tweeted Monday. Just a few weeks ago, Musk said the company has sold $300,000 worth of hats, meaning the sales have roughly doubled since that time. 

Over 30,000 hats sold!

If you order the $20 hat right now, you’ll likely get it in 3-4 weeks. But you might want to hurry, as Musk says the hats will be limited to 50,000 pieces only.  Read more…

The polar bear in this video is dying from starvation. Fortunately, most aren’t…yet

TwitterFacebook

After landing on Baffin Island, Canada, wildlife photographer and environmental activist Paul Nicklen captured video of a frail polar bear — dying and foaming from the mouth — as the weak animal collapsed to the ground. The bear will soon be dead — if it isn’t already. 

On Dec. 5, Nicklen posted the grim video to his Instagram account, and since then, it’s been stirring  emotions around the web. Polar bears are, for better or worse, a symbolic species when it comes to global warming, and many are seeing this video as a new warning sign. 

Fortunately, however, the condition of this bear is not representative of most polar bear populations — at least not yet.  Read more…
