Since upgrading my brand new Lenovo Yoga 3 to Windows 10…
- webcam doesn’t work
- iTunes won’t even load
- keyboard randomly doubles up on characters about 1 of 100 times you press a key… but about 1 out of 5 times you press the letter C
- and there’s no help for any of this online
Mount Rushmore was originally conceived as nothing more than a way to get tourists to come to South Dakota. Beats the world’s largest ball of twine, I guess.
My old boss Tere knew shorthand, and watching her scribble those hieroglyphics during interviews always fascinated me. This story makes me want to master it myself.
Bring in the drones!
Is it just me or are the April Fools’ Day pranks of today getting entirely tiresome? I think it’s because the internet makes it too easy to pull them off. How about painting the Golden Gate Bridge blue or releasing a herd of cows inside City Hall? Now that’s a prank, people.
Case in point. (I can’t tell if Eater even got the joke…)
How do you get placebos to work better? Charge more for them. Mind over matter… but money over mind.
So UPS, let me get this straight.
Someone ships an express worldwide package — 58 pounds — to Ghana, Africa, using my UPS account number, but from an origin that’s about 2,000 miles away from where I live. The bill for the shipping is over $1,000. I almost never ship anything, let alone anything to Africa.
You don’t see anything just a little bit odd about that scenario?
The lightsaber bit had me LOLing.
Dixie cup filled with Froot Loops cereal. OK then.

The new law goes into effect for large grocery chains and pharmacies beginning July 1, 2015. It will extend to convenience stores and liquor stores July 1, 2016.
Under the law, stores will be required to offer customers recycled paper bags or bags made of compostable material at a cost of at least 10 cents. Consumers buying groceries using California’s food-assistance program won’t have to pay for bags.
Assuming the law keeps expanding: How will Chinatown function?
