When you are the world’s most powerful person, AKA the POTUS, you hardly can do anything you fancy outside of official work without secret service staff swarming around. Life as a POTUS is never private and everything POTUS does, it will be scrutinized to the core as Drumpf has learned. So, when the 44th President of United States finally passed the reins to the 45th President, he finally get to let his hair down completely and without restraint, even under the former President-entitled secret service protection. By the invite of UK billionaire, founder of Virgin brand, Richard Branson, the former world’s most powerful person along with wife Michelle hit up British Virgin Islands (AKA Necker islands) for a well-deserved true break he never had for the last eight years.

A Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog Finally Made Sense

This video is actually nearly a decade old now but hey, if we never heard of it, it is still newsworthy, right? Anyways, I am sure you have heard of the famous pangram, “a quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.” You know, the sentence which everyone picking up the art of typing will need to master? Well, if that sentence makes zero sense to you, apart from containing all the alphabets, then Jashi, a quick (and super adorable) brown fox, is here to help you make sense of it. In this video, Jashi playfully tried to jump over Romi, a nonchalant Akita dog and eventually succeeded, and thus dispelling the argument of the pangram makes no sense.

Team Mikeshouts Wishes Everyone Out There A Very Happy 2017!

As we stepped into 2017, we reflect on what we have achieved in 2016 and it was, well, nothing. I know it sounds kind of sad and it is. Initially, there was a huge plan for the site as we were crossing into 2016, but it was shelved indefinitely due to unforeseeable circumstances. The thing is, while you guys saw were just words, there are actually much happening behind the scene. A blog like this, is almost like a movie or TV series (except that it does not end), has a significant amount of inner workings which we shan’t burden you with. Anyways, there’s no point crying over our spilled milk, or in our case, spilled booze. And so, for the very first time, we are going to set a team’s New Year resolution and that’s to bring more contents per day (and hopefully, everyday). Continue reading Team Mikeshouts Wishes Everyone Out There A Very Happy 2017!

Sorry Folks, Electric Cars May Not Be As Green As You Thought To Be

Elon Musk is deeply concerned about how automobile emissions are destroying the world as we know it and hence, the man is a fervent proponent of electric cars (and also, hence Tesla Motors). But are electric cars really as green as we think? Well, you don’t need Adam from truTV’s Adam Ruins Everything to tell it is not quite so. First of all, where do you think the electricity that your lovely Tesla Model 3 needs is from? The grid, of course and where did the grid get the electric energy from? Obviously, the power plants. Now, the source of the electricity pretty much determines whether the electric car you drives is mostly green or not.

Nothing Much, It Is Just Casey Neistat Being Hauled Into The Air By A Drone

That’s not Santa Claus, though that did took place in Finland and aptly, in a small village where real-life Santa lives. It is just YouTube celebrity and filmmaker Casey Neistat in Santa getup, who instead of riding a sleigh pulled by Rudolf and friends, he had a snowboard and a giant-ass drone. When we said giant-ass, the drone really is a giant-ass multi-rotor aircraft. Drone of this magnitude is not commercially available and so, Casey’s team took about a year to design and put together an eight-rotor drone that has not only the power to pull Casey across the powdered ground and up the hills, but also lift him high up to the air.
