Do You Consider Yourself An Adult AKA How To Act Like A Grown Up

Gone are the days of staying up past midnight to complete a school assignment and sitting at the back of a lecture to take a quick nap. Everyone hits a moment of realization at some point where they realize they are no longer a kid. It’s a realization that adulthood has hit, and it hits hard. It is not necessarily related to age, as some people take longer to realize that adulthood has hit. For some, this is tied to moving away from home for the first time. For others, it could come with learning how to use a corkscrew properly. Here are a few things that could make some people realize that they have hit the independent adulthood stage of life.

Check Out This Da Vinci-style Complex Puzzle Created By Miyagi University

OK. With over 1.2 million views on YouTube, this particular graduate project from Miyagi University, Japan, may not the newest news, but its ingenious complexity had us so enthralled that I find it a crime not to share it with the Internet. Also, lets face it; there gazillions of things online these days, who knows some of you have not seen this work of art? Anywho, we are not quite sure what this particular puzzle box is officially called and Google Translate isn’t helping with this somewhat funny translation of “Peep into the graffiti.” That makes absolutely no sense to me.

What’s Next? 5 Things We Can Expect From The Internet of The Future

Sometimes it’s hard to notice how much technology has changed. There is never a sudden overnight change, a leap from having a basic cell phone capable of carrying out phone calls and texts to a smartphone with apps, internet connectivity and GPS. It’s gradual and that means we often don’t notice just how much things have actually changed around us. Continue reading What’s Next? 5 Things We Can Expect From The Internet of The Future

Google Puts Mario On Google Maps For A Week To Mark Mario Day

Google Maps is as useful as it is and therefore, I see no real purpose in sprucing it up with Easter egg, but that does not stop Google from trying to make using Maps fun and the latest ‘thing’ that will make using the Maps fun (at least fans of Super Mario Bros. will be, I think) is the inclusion of the mustachioed plumber and his trusty Kart on the Maps. To mark Mario’s apparent special day, which happens to be on March 10 (that’s MAR10, btw), the team over at Google Maps collaborates with Nintendo to let the world famous plumber and his Kart lead you to your destination.

Now, You Can Explore Japan’s Odate City Thru Akita Dogs With ‘Dog View’

First, there’s Google Maps, then Google Street View follows, offering users a more up close and personal view of the place they are looking at. Then someone took it upon herself to create her own street view (more like mountain view, really) in a place not touched by Google’s mapping team by strapping cameras on sheep, calling it SheepView 360. The latter is, obviously, not an official endeavor. It did, however, draw the attention of Google. Continue reading Now, You Can Explore Japan’s Odate City Thru Akita Dogs With ‘Dog View’

You know what’s one of the hardest things to do in life? Getting people who borrowed from you to return the money.

Furrion Prosthesis Exo-bionic Mech Shows MegaBots How Mech Is Done

Being a sucker for all-thing mecha, it is only natural that I got all dizzy about the world’s first mech robot battle, but as thrilled as I was, those mecha, be it MegaBots or Kurata, are short of being “real mecha” because, rightly, mecha should pound the ground, not rolls on tracks or wheels. A mecha should be like Hankook Mirae Technology’s Method-2, or China’s giant monkey robot. In other words, they should have lower limbs. Not all hopes are lost, though. The world of giant-ass robots is progressing, starting with the aforementioned and now, we heard, there is another and it is called Furrion Prosthesis Exo-bionic Racing Mech.

The Internet Is Outraged By Team USA’s Speed Skating ‘Pervy’ Outfit

If you have not been catching the on-going Winter Olympics over at Pyeongchang, South Korea, you probably have not noticed something rather unusual about the Team USA’s Speed Skating outfit. I know I sure did not pay attention to it, but thanks to the Internet, I cannot unseen what I have saw. The two-tone outfit has sparked quite some reaction, particularly of disgust, because, the skin-tight apparel features a light colored patch on the crotch area which appears to be highlighting the athletes’ inner thigh and if that’s isn’t weird enough, the outfit also sports a tiny black patch in the said area which seems to point to the athlete’s genitalia area. Absolutely weird. Continue reading The Internet Is Outraged By Team USA’s Speed Skating ‘Pervy’ Outfit

Two Kids Tried To Pay For A Ticket For Black Panther By Disguising Themselves As One Tall Person

We often seen in movies and TV shows on how two kids tried to disguise as a grown person by having one sitting on top of another and draping themselves over with an oversize trench coat. Kids in those movies/TV shows did it for various reasons, including trying to get into an adult-only party or to buy boozes, but in the case of Twitter user Pillsbury (@stevelikescups) and his friend, they did it just to see if they could pass off two person as one person to watch Marvel’s latest superhero flick, Black Panther at a local theater. Now, we all know how it ends. Continue reading Two Kids Tried To Pay For A Ticket For Black Panther By Disguising Themselves As One Tall Person
