Just ask his co-host Susanna Reid. In the glorious supercut above — put together by JOE — you can see exactly how unimpressed she is with his waffling on a daily basis.

Still, she does manage to get her own back every now and again. Read more…

Man caught in hilariously awkward situation on Snap Maps

TwitterFacebook

Snapchat’s new feature, Snap Maps, is freaking people out big time.

TL;DR: it doesn’t just tell your friends where you are, it also discloses some of your activities.

To be fair, Snap Maps also has the potential to give people a very good laugh. Take this tweet, for example:

Let’s dissect these pics, shall we? The one at the bottom right clearly shows a guy face down on the mud of some river banks, while the others show a bitmoji — presumably the same guy — standing up thumbs up and smiling.  Read more…

China’s viral, dangerous toy: A $5 BB crossbow that shatters bottles

TwitterFacebook

This latest toy in China is causing alarm amongst parents.

A new pellet-shooting mini crossbow is picking up in popularity. The handsized toy, which can be held and fired like a handgun, shoots small metal BB pellets that are strong enough to penetrate fruit, crack glass bottles — and cause serious injuries.

SEE ALSO: Forget fidget spinners, these mini rollers are the new fidget toys on the block

More worryingly, the toys are extremely inexpensive, at $5 (33 yuan) each, making them accessible to most kids.

A report by the Legal Evening Post revealed that the makers of the laser-equipped crossbow also used to manufacture crossbows that shot wooden toothpicks. They moved on to making the BB pellet variation, after local governments and schools started to ban the viral but dangerous toys. Read more…

On Thursday morning, Christopher Hope-Smith asked Twitter for help. His son Ollie was turning 9 soon, Hope-Smith wrote, but there was a bully who kept telling him his birthday wouldn’t be “as good as his own”.

Hope-Smith had other ideas, though. He wanted to make sure Ollie’s birthday was his best so far.

Strange request. Anyone know anyone famous/well known who could send Ollie a positive/9th birthday message. The bully keeps saying to him

The popular makeup brand is facing a wave of backlash, after it revealed that it began selling its products in China earlier this month — a country where animal testing is compulsory.

Guy books a ride on an app, but a huge truck came to pick him up instead

TwitterFacebook

This was certainly no UberX.

A man’s account of how he ended up at the back of a truck after using a ridesharing app, has gone viral on Weibo.

The man, who goes by the user ID @QiGeNongDongQiang, wrote in a now-deleted post that he wanted to take a ride from Wushan — a county in southwest China to the city of Chongqing. It’s approximately a five to six hour ride.

Genius Best Buy employee explains the difference between having ‘the juice’ and ‘the sauce’

TwitterFacebook

You probably didn’t expect Best Buy to be the place where some of the deepest philosophical conversations of our time were occurring, but now we have video evidence.

Twitter user LukeG2017 uploaded this clip on Tuesday discussing a question that you didn’t know you needed the answer to with his coworker Gino_Russ.

Rappers brag all the time about how they got the sauce and often how about how they have the juice as well, but really what’s the difference?

JAY-Z’s much-anticipated new album ‘4:44’ is out right now

TwitterFacebook

It’s out.

JAY-Z’s — note the return of the hyphen and the capitalization — much-hyped, much-advertised new album 4:44 has been released as a Tidal exclusive, the rapper’s first in four years.

The 10-track album leads with the cheekily named track “Kill Jay Z,” which points to his recent re-hyphenation. There’s also listed collaborations with Frank Ocean, Gloria Carter (JAY-Z’s mother), and Damian Marley. 

4:44 is reportedly only available to existing subscribers to Tidal, unless you’re a Sprint user, according to The Verge Read more…

Amazon’s Whole Foods deal pretty much sunk Blue Apron’s IPO

TwitterFacebook

A giant wall of lettuce, crates of vegetables, and gourmet food stands adorned the front of the New York Stock Exchange building on Thursday morning as meal delivery service Blue Apron celebrated its debut on the trading floor.

Produce-related festivities aside, enthusiasm for the once hotly anticipated public offering has wilted in the past couple days as the company lowered its target opening stock price from between $15 and $17 to just $10. 

A stale day of trading that left shares stagnant at a time when young companies usually look for fresh momentum didn’t do much to lift the mood among investors. Read more…
