Man comes across massive injured great white in shallow waters


When coming upon a 14-foot great white shark in shallow waters, the universal response is to turn to a friend and say, as calmly as possible, “That’s a f*cking white shark, dude. Holy shit.”

Dale Pearson and a friend saw a figure struggling in the shallow waters near their homes in Baja California, Mexico. Thinking it would be a whale or a hammerhead shark, the two men trudged out to help the animal. That’s when they realized that it wasn’t a whale, but a large great white that had been injured by a boat propellor.

The two men got within a few yards of the shark as it bled, working to free itself from the shallows. Read more…

Trump Twitter bot reminds us that all his tweets are coming from the White House

Now, thanks to one clever Twitter user, we can view those often bombastic, poorly worded, and downright trivial tweets in their proper context: official White House statements. 

On Sunday, Twitter user Russel Neiss launched a new Twitter bot called Real Press Sec., which takes Trump’s tweets and presents them in the familiar form of an official White House press statement. The effect of seeing Trump’s social media bloviation as history-framed, official-looking statements from the nation’s highest office is devastatingly poignant.  Read more…

Louis C.K.'s 'SNL' monologue rips white privilege and racist chickens


“Why did the chicken cross the road?”

Obviously, Louis C.K. didn’t deliver the expected punchline when he kicked off his April 8 Saturday Night Live monologue with the lamest joke in human history. Instead, he riffed on racist chickens, judgmental horses, and freaked-out giraffes (sadly, no April reference).

The 10-minute mini-set ends with a story about a recent hotel stay, an encounter with rude housekeeping staff, and an acknowledgment of white privilege. It’s a real journey, and peak Louis. Read more…

With only two days to go until LG kicks off its G6 launch event at MWC 2017, we’ve had the chance to look at plenty of photos and renders that (seemingly) show the upcoming smartphone. But there’s always room for one more leak, right?

The newly leaked image that you can examine below presents the LG G6 in three color variants: mystic white, astro black, and ice platinum. We kind of knew that these three G6 color versions existed (see here, here, and here), but it’s certainly nice to be able to glance upon an image that shows them all in one place.
