Little girl’s first sip of Coke blows her tiny kid mind

TwitterFacebook

A little girl’s reaction to her first sip of Coca-Cola from McDonald’s is going viral after her dad, Reddit user Earthos83 posted this video on YouTube.

In the video, little Evie took a big sip of Coke, and immediately went into an elaborate convulsion of facial expressions before rolling her head back from pure shock/pleasure of probably experiencing a true sugar high for the first time.

After recovering from the initial shock, Evie seemed to be back for more of the notorious fizzy drink.

And we suspect it won’t be her last one. Read more…

Enjoy.  

1Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Obviously we’re not going to make a “most anticipated” list without getting some Star Wars in there. While last year’s Rogue One took a detour into the past, The Last Jedi promises to pick up right where The Force Awakens left off, bringing back our new favorite characters and adding some new ones besides, all under the stylish direction of Looper and Breaking Bad‘s Rian Johnson. Not for nothing, The Last Jedi will also be Carrie Fisher’s final performance as Leia. Bring tissues. Read more…

Watch Rey and BB-8’s first thrilling adventure in ‘Star Wars: Forces of Destiny’

TwitterFacebook

“In the morning, you go.” 

You probably remember Rey’s admonishment to BB-8 after she saves him from a scavenger on Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — as if anyone could kick the adorable soccer ball droid out on the sand.

What changed her mind? It could have something to do with what happened next — a previously unseen encounter with a nasty creature called a nightwatcher worm, revealed in the opening chapter of Forces of Destiny

How iOS 14 will be Apple’s smartest software ever

TwitterFacebook

We’ve repeated this many times here before, but there are a few truisms that can be said for any future iPhone: it will have the fastest processor, the best camera and at least one unique feature you can’t get on any other iPhone.

That’s as true now as it will be in 2020. But it’s time to add one more item to the list: intelligence.

As important as processing power and superior optics are now, machine learning, artificial intelligence and personalization will also be paramount to future iPhones and iOS.

So much so that Apple is reportedly designing a new iPhone chip specifically for AI. This would not only help drive future advancements, it would do so while staying in line with Apple’s preference to keep Ai-powered personalization features on-device in the interest of protecting user privacy,  Read more…

Cats are the masters of hide-and-seek.

Man pulls bizarre Princess Diana shrine prank on roommate, goes viral

TwitterFacebook

There are plenty of pranks you can play on your roommates.

Many of these are well documented. There’s the classic “cover everything in clingfilm/wrapping paper” prank. There’s the one where you turn all of their possessions upside-down. There’s also that one where you place full plastic cups of water on every square inch of their bedroom floor.

To our knowledge, though, this may be the first someone has pranked their roommate with a fake Princess Diana shrine.

Roommate has date coming by later and asked me to clean bc he’s not home. So I made a Princess D shrine in his room pic.twitter.com/wfOeVUm7yW

Dude uses Google Autocomplete to help him fill out resumé, will definitely never get a job

TwitterFacebook

Writing your CV is one of life’s necessary — but highly time-consuming — evils. And, many of us take all the help we can get.

London-based author Aaron Gillies decided to let Google Autocomplete give him a hand in updating his CV. The results were both brutally honest and hilariously weird. Sorry Aaron, but we’re not sure these skills are the right fit for any job. 

Gillies listed his date of birth as “born to love you,” a detail I’m not entirely sure any employer would be comfortable with. 

I needed to update my CV so I did it all through google autocomplete and soon I will have every job pic.twitter.com/pjCBtUhtmw
