Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

It’s a wild week with great stories about AmazonGo getting shoplifted from, rapper 50 Cent’s happy bitcoin accident, a sweet new Sci-Fi movie from Robbie and Stephen Amell called Code-8 and of course the big Vanity Fair Photoshop fail that gave Reese Witherspoon a third leg and Oprah Winfrey a 3rd hand! Not to mention Drew Carey getting tackled on stage, the XFL says don’t call it a comeback and much more! There is so much laughter in the soup this week you may bust a gut!

AmazonGo Store DID suffer a case of shoplifting on it’s first day!

In an interesting twist from our conversation last week, it seems that there was at least one inadvertent bit of thievery happening, some yogurt. Best part is Amazon didn’t care.

Linus Tech Tips “Shoplifts” Tampons From AmazonGo

50 Cent Accidentally Made $8 Million in Bitcoin

In 2014, rapper 50 Cent let people buy his album “Animal Ambition” using bitcoin. He then let his account lie unused for years, and only just recently discovered that he’s now a bitcoin millionaire.At the time, a single bitcoin was worth only $662 and he pulled in over $400,000. Since then, the value of bitcoin has soared: the price of the cryptocurrency is currently worth a little more than $11,000. After sitting untouched in his account for years, 50 Cent’s earnings are now worth $7 million to $8.5 million, based on the current fluctuating bitcoin valuation.

 

Code 8 – The IndieGoGo SCI-FI Movie!

This movie is looking awesome.  It is a mutant, people with powers type movie starring cousins Robbie Amell (The Tomorrow People, The Flash, The X-Files) and Stephen Amell (Arrow’s Oliver Queen).  The movie is in post production and has been funded by 20,000 backers on IndieGoGo.  The film takes place in a world where 4% of the population are born with some type of supernatural ability. Instead of being billionaire superheroes, most ‘specials’ live in poverty and resort to crime, forcing the police to become more militarized.

 

Vanity Fair Photoshop Fail

From extra legs and hands to missing appendages, this recent Vanity Fair cover seems to be a photoshop disaster!

 

XFL Returning in 2020!

WWE founder and chairman Vince McMahon announced Thursday he is giving a professional football league another go.  It will be called the XFL, the same name of the league McMahon and NBC tried for one season in 2001, but it won’t rely on flashy cheerleaders and antics as its predecessor did, he said.

Let’s talk after if we actually want to do this.  Could be a little challenging/low-brow true true

 

Drew Carey tackled by contestant on Price is Right

What can we say, she was super excited, he wasn’t ready for it and….well…watch for yourself!

 

GEEK OFF –

What’s more likely, Dave plays Ark semi regularly or Jason puts up his mystery articles/videos?

 

Design your own NES games

The future of the past is now or something like that! This fully funded Kickstarter is a system that allows you to easily code, design and produce your very own NES game that is then installed in an actual NES cartridge that is playable on the original tech.

 

Die With Me … the app you can only use at 5% battery life!

If your battery has anything higher than a 5 percent charge, Die With Me won’t open up its doors; once you are in, if you charge up to higher than 5 percent, it will automatically kick you out of the room. It’s a place to bond, for a fleeting moment, with strangers sharing the same near-death phone experience, one with a built-in countdown timer on your conversations: what will you say in the moments before your screen goes black?

 

Speak, Fido!

With the help of artificial intelligence, we may hear more than “bark” and “meow” from our fuzzy friends.
