My new #AppleWatch ... So proud. #Apple #AppleLive

 

And then, there are the Android users, who still think specs are what drive consumer purchases:

Dear iPhone 6 users: Welcome to 2012!

 

 

Finally, everyone thinks the iWatch is stupid:

We wanted to honor Steve Jobs' vision for the future, but then we said , 'Screw it, let's honor Casio's vision for the nineteen-eighties instead'

We Do Not Sew

Hilarious Game of Thrones pun on Deviant Art:

We Do Not Sew by rony-robber

We Do Not Sew by rony-robber

If you don’t get it, the pun is on “We Do Not Sow”, which are “the words” (i.e., motto) of House Greyjoy, whose sigil features a kraken.

This One Comic Is Going To Forever Change How You Look At Clickbait

A headline is supposed to be a succinct summary of an article. Clickbait, on the other hand, is like the headline’s slimy, used-car salesman cousin. It’s vague, intriguing, hyped up, and created with only one purpose in mind: to make you click on that link. Over the past couple of years, lazy bloggers have more or less standardized the jargon, so pretty much any headline starting with “this” or “these” or a number, like “6 Ways The Grocery Store Is Ripping You Off” and “This hilarious cat will make you bawl your eyes out” is clickbait.

This insightful xkcd turned the eye of history on clickbait, and came up with 14 headlines that you won’t believe.

headlines

Some of these are really obvious, but if you’re stuck on what the headlines are about:

  • 1905: Einstein’s publishing of his Theory of Special Relativity
  • 1912: The Titanic sinking
  • 1920: Prohibition coinciding with women getting the right to vote
  • 1928: The discovery of penicillin
  • 1929: The start of the Great Depression
  • 1945: The end of World War 2
  • 1948: The Soviet occupation of East Germany
  • 1955: The discovery of the polio vaccine
  • 1957: The launch of the first man-made satellite
  • 1968: MLK’s and RFK‘s assassinations
  • 1969: The first moon landing
  • 1986: The Challenger exploding
  • 1989: The Berlin Wall being torn down
  • 1990: Basically every one of Buzzfeed’s headlines clickbaits

The hovering title text is about Einstein’s publishing of the Theory of General Relativity.

How To Explain Twerking To Your Parents

In response to the Miley Cyrus incident at the 2013 VMAs, the New York Times has a hilarious article in which the word “children” was replaced with “parents”. A brilliant tweak that lead to gems like this:

A critical first step is to acknowledge that twerking is a normal part of life and that there is nothing shameful in their questions. They’re parents, after all, and this is the sort of thing they hear about on NPR, and, well, they’re curious.

Go ahead, read the whole thing — it’s a good use of three minutes.

Why Facebook Added Hashtag Support

As you’ve probably heard, last week, Facebook decided to give in to the grammatical abominations that are hashtags, start supporting them, and surely hasten the apocalypse. Here’s how that likely went down — and yes, it probably did involve their brilliant focus group:
