Swineapple is the most extra thing to happen to food since pineapple on pizza

TwitterFacebook

Forget about the wildly controversial, and hugely disgusting, practice of putting pineapple on pizza. There’s a new pineapple food trend in town. And, you’re going to have some strong feelings about it.

A swineapple is basically a pineapple wrapped in bacon and stuffed with pork loin. This rather unusual food pairing is the viral barbecue food trend of the summer, and countless food bloggers are posting their own swineapple recipes.

What do today’s millennials look for in games?

“Millennials are asking for games they can play with friends more and more, so that’s why we’re going increasingly into multiplayer games. 

“We see that the industry is changing towards a more community-oriented one,” Guillemot told Mashable at the company’s Singapore studio.

Artificial intelligence proves that craft beer names are total nonsense

TwitterFacebook

If you’re a craft beer connoisseur — or even just an occasional drinker — you’ve likely noticed that names for new brews are getting out of hand. Likely in order to distance themselves from traditional, European beer names such as Franziskaner Royal, the new breed of craft beer makers are going with increasingly odd names such as Stone Ruination IPA. 

My all-time favorite, and I did not make this up, is a beer called “Evil Twin Bringing a Gun to a Knife Fight.”

So what happens when you employ a neural network to create new craft beer names? Well, pretty much the same thing.

Woman claims she found something strange in her kangaroo meat

TwitterFacebook

Yes, Australians eat kangaroos — despite it being on their coat of arms and much loved by all.

NASA has party tips to make this the best solar eclipse

NASA is ready to party. 

On Aug. 21, 2017, for the first time since 1918, a total solar eclipse will cross the entire continental United States—and NASA just released a long list of things you can do to prepare for the big day. 

SEE ALSO: Your most basic and burning questions about next month’s solar eclipse, answered

The actual eclipse won’t take that long: At the point of max totality in Carbondale, Illinois, the moon will block the sun for a full 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Elsewhere, it’s about 2 minutes of celestial fun.

Party with the path of totality.

To make the most of this day party (the sun has to be out for the eclipse to happen—it starts around 9 a.m. on the Oregon coast and finishes up before 3 p.m. near Charleston, South Carolina), start with picking a location. NASA suggests one of its official viewing sites, or “local community centers, museums, observatories, parks or open fields.” Read more…

The perps behind the ‘biggest ransomware attack ever’ appear to be moving their loot

TwitterFacebook

You’ve infected hundreds of thousands of computers across the globe with your ransomware, and victims’ cryptocurrency payments are flowing into your Bitcoin wallets.

How long should you wait to try and access that cash?

Well, for the perpetrators behind WannaCry, the answer appears to be about two and a half months. We can say this because the three Bitcoin wallets that held the ransomed loot were all suddenly emptied late Wednesday.

And while we don’t know for sure that the same people who unleashed the attack are still in control of the wallets, the profound absence of a statement from law enforcement suggests, at the very least, the accounts haven’t been seized.  Read more…
