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…

Reminder: Don’t Wear Suede and Canvas Shoes During Rainy Days

How many times has it happened to you that you wore the wrong kind of shoes during a rainy day? Sadly, I’ve fallen victim to this situation too many times—mostly because the rain ambushed me and drenched my favorite pairs. While the first instinct is to advise you to wear waterproof shoes or boots, it’s […]

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

TwitterFacebook

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…

Guy takes a photo with Seth Rogen every year for a good cause

TwitterFacebook

For the past four years a man named Ted has attended Hilarity for Charity events where he takes a picture with comedian Seth Rogen.

The best part is that the two have somewhat of a meta tradition surrounding the picture. Rogen always holds the photo from the previous year in one hand while giving a thumbs up with the other.

Hilarity for Charity is a non-profit started by Seth Rogen and his wife, Lauren Miller Rogen, that “aims to significantly improve outcomes for all family members contending with Alzheimer’s disease by 2020.”  Read more…

Police dog too friendly for the force gets an adorable new job

TwitterFacebook

If you want to be a police dog, you’ve gotta be a bit tough. Gavel, a German Shepherd from Queensland, Australia, isn’t.

He was ruled too sociable for the frontline by police trainers, and was let go from the training program while he was being fostered at the official residence of the Queensland governor.

Left wondering what to do with the pooch, staff decided to give him a new job as a vice-regal dog, which was made official in February this year.

“He has outgrown four ceremonial coats, undergone a career change (his official title is now Gavel VRD, ‘Vice-Regal Dog’), and brought untold joy to the lives of the governor, Mrs de Jersey, Government House staff, and the thousands of Queenslanders who have since visited the estate,” the office of Governor Paul de Jersey told the BBC.

Smart glasses give legally blind man second chance to see his wife at their wedding

TwitterFacebook

Andrew Airey married his wife almost 15 years ago, but recently he had a second wedding and this time he could see more of her face and even her wedding veil.

Airey lives with Stargardt’s disease, a form of macular degeneration, and his eyesight has deteriorated over the past 20 years. He’s legally blind, which has made life with his wife, Kelli, and their three daughters challenging in some ways. He said one of the biggest challenges is “not being able to see my wife’s facial expressions.” But a new device has changed that. Read more…
