TwitterFacebook

How much do you value sleep?

Not as much as Silicon Valley investors, apparently. The founder of the startup electronics company Hello, James Proud, quietly announced Monday that he’s shutting down the company after just five years of operation.

The untimely death of Hello serves as a cautionary tale about what can happen when gadget startups go belly up. Even though Hello raised $2.4 million in one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns of all time, and raised an additional $40 million in venture capital funding, huge stacks of cash weren’t enough to save the company from its own demise.

Mom gets the half-up, half-down hairstyle so, so wonderfully wrong

TwitterFacebook

When you’re a kid and your mom does your hair, it’s always a gamble whether or not it will go well. There’s usually a lot of tugging, re-doing, and someone always ends up crying. 

If your mom wasn’t exactly a skilled hairstylists, you also probably ended up with some questionable looks — Like this one given to Twitter user Hanna De Castro, who’s mom didn’t quite nail the coveted half-up, half-down look requested for this dance photo.

The photo on the left is what her hair is supposed to look like, while on the right is the style she ended up with. 

It’s a tragedy in two parts.
