The Internet puts out tons of funny and interesting content on a daily basis, and sometimes it’s really hard to keep up. So in case you were too busy with life this week, here’s a roundup of the top 5 most funny/interesting things that happened on the Internet:
1. Google’s Project Glass – This week, Google revealed their latest innovative project, a pair of “augmented reality” eyeglasses that sort of works like Siri for your eyes. You wear it the same way that you would wear eyeglasses, and you’ll be able to do a lot of cool stuff like checking the weather, taking calls, answering messages, and the like. If you haven’t seen Google’s video demonstration, you can check it out here.
What’s funny though is that the very next day, Tom Scott produce a video that parodies Project Glass. As if texting while walking or driving wasn’t bad enough, imagine what would happen if you keep seeing various pieces of information right before your eyes, as you go about your day. Check out the video here.
2. Ridiculously Photogenic Guy – See that guy in the purple shirt? Earlier this week, he was dubbed as “Ridiculously Photogenic Guy” and within hours of reaching Reddit’s top page, various memes featuring his photo started popping up.
Today, various news outlets including Charleston City Paper and MSNBC revealed his identity. His name is Zeddie Little, he’s 25 years old, lives in New York City and—sorry to all you fan girls—already has a girlfriend. The above-photo was taken by Will King during a recent race in South Carolina.
3. Arizona to Police Trolling – Yes, you read that right. Arizona House Bill 2549 is currently awaitaing approval from the governor and states that:
“It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use any electronic or digital device and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person.”
So if you’re ever in Arizona, be very careful about the things that you say online.
4. Samantha Brick – That’s the name of the woman who published a lengthy article about the downsides and perils of being beautiful. She claims that because of her extremely good looks, she’s received a lot of freebies from admirers. However, she also claims that a lot of women—from her so-called and friends and co-workers—hate her. Apparently, other women are so threatened by her good looks that they respond with attitude and hostility.
“And it is not just jealous wives who have frozen me out of their lives. Insecure female bosses have also barred me from promotions at work.
And most poignantly of all, not one girlfriend has ever asked me to be her bridesmaid.”
Needless to say, a girl whining about how life sucks because she’s pretty wasn’t well-received. Her article caused a huge backlash from people of the Internet. Twitter was flooded with sarcastic and ridiculing tweets about Brick, and even Barbara Walters mentioned her in The View, saying, “She’s not that beautiful, okay?”
5. Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in the movie Biopic – Say what you want about this actor-slah-startup-investor, but he does have a resemblance with a young Steve Jobs. Looks-wise, he does fit the part. The question is, can he pull it off?
