Steve Jobs has resigned from Apple. We knew this day would come, but... why just a day after the earthquakes? All joking aside, we hope that Steve's health is okay.
The famed Apple boss just made the move public. Here's his resignation letter.
This movie needs to come out already. Is there any way that it won't be good? It just has to be good. Right? Right?
The hilarious Streeter Seidell of CollegeHumor fame, was shocked to discover that his desk fan was stolen by the site's President of Video Content Sam Reich. Not one to take this slight lying down, Streeter took to his keyboard and wrote a letter so strongly worded that it has just been suspended for HGH use. This is great.
DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM, BITCH?!
No wonder so many people heard about it before they felt it! The reflexes of the Twitterati are ridiculous.
Yesterday, Sony Pictures uploaded The Godfather to YouTube, allowing users to watch it for free. No rental necessary. No account. No nothing. Why? Does anyone know? It's not available on NetFlix or Hulu. YouTube has a movie rental program. Why eschew it Sony? Something's up.
Times are tough. The economy is in the crapper, you've lost your job, and your mortgage payments are starting to pile up. Well today is your lucky day. Because someone is offering a small sum of money to make sure high people don't kill themselves!
When you and your fine friend are about to get down to business, always remember to turn your iPod off shuffle. One of these libido slashing songs will ruin your day. Add yours!
Deus Ex: Human Revolution was supposed to come with a code for a free game from online gaming service OnLive. In fact, that code is prepackaged with every copy of the game. Unless of course you buy from GameStop, where they have instructed their employees to open every box and remove every coupon. As a former GameStop employee (ah high school), let me say that this is unfortunately not surprising in the least.
I LOVE this woman!
Beloit College released their annual Mindset List, designed to help prevent their staff from making cultural references that the incoming class won't recognize, and it's depressing as ever. These are only 20 of the 75 ways that the graduating class of 2015 will drive you to booze and Propecia. At least we have another year before the incoming class can say that Kurt Cobain has always been dead.
There's no going back after this video. It's OVER. BRB, going to have like seven kids so they can get into Krump-Offs.
DFW would often use a mixture of colloquialism and disclaimer to adopt a posture that deflects any negative response by appearing to anticipate it. Sound familiar?
Or maybe it was just indifferent, but everything I know about cats would suggest that this one is pissed. And probably plotting murder. Probably.
Why would they cut this?! My inner fangirl is screaming at the overt homoerotic subtext in this extended scene from "X-Men: First Class."
This song is called "WTF" and it is not a parody. Enjoy.
Wayne's take on Martin Luther King Jr. is... a little different. But so is the whole sketch. Funny? Offensive? What do you think?
Modern technology has increased exponentially over the years, but I still have some doubts that today's Wal-Marts could stand as long as these gems of the ancient world. Unless, of course, you consider Supercenters America's version of the Great Pyramids.
At least on the cover of the New York Times Magazine. That said, I want to see this happen in a movie. I'd totally watch that movie.
An epic tale of a predator and his prey.
Reader's Digest has an advice column named "Ask Laskas." You should not ask Laskas anything. She gives terrible advice. Like markedly bad.
I was walking down the High Line yesterday, when I found myself thirsty. No problem, there was a water fountain. I thought the heart on the button was strange, but didn't really think anything of it. But when I pushed it, a voice came out that I wasn't expecting...
Mount Erebus, located on Ross Island in Antarctica, is the world's southernmost active volcano, and, more important, it's the only one that's covered in giant and fantastic ice caves. At 12,448ft tall, there are openings everywhere across its surface--although I wouldn't recommend investigating "Mount Terror."
You will remember these two as the adorable duo behind the adorable cover of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros' "Home." They're back, and this time they're covering Adele. As you'd expect, it's great.
If you're checking out, why not make it the exit of all exits. Here are some of the most ridiculous ways people have kicked the bucket.
That's an easy way for a horse to get some attention.
It seems flame retardant chemicals and pressure hoses are arch nemeses. Luckily this local firefighter shakes it off like a boss.
Humans have done quite a few strange things over the years, but many not quite as unexpected as these. Find out why Julius Caesar wore a wreath on his head, what great gift Queen Victoria received on her birthday, Paul Revere's occupation, what kind of harems they have in Malaya, and much more.
