Many of you are quite familiar with “The Internet of Things,” others have heard the term here and there but haven’t thought about it much, and then a few of you are hearing about it for the first time right now. It doesn’t really matter which group you’re in, the internet of things is going to change your life.
This proud Tesla owner gave unsuspecting friends rides in his car and recorded their reactions as he took them 0-60 in 3.1 seconds. (Keep an eye out for the iPhone that stuck to the seat back because of the G-force.)…
The odd practice of creating “unboxing” videos of newly arrived purchases has been around long enough that it’s almost easier to find videos of people making fun of the idea than it is to find a good example of someone doing it seriously.
However, this new video from the completely serious and entirely trustworthy viral news source Clickhole brings the unboxing ritual back to its roots. This is what it’s all about…

Facebook launched in 2004, but what if it had begun a decade earlier?
If it had needed to market itself to internet users in the mid-90′s and compete against AOL, here’s what one of their commercials would have probably looked like…
And, yes, this is a parody of a real commercial that AOL actually aired in 1995.
In the documentary How to Build a Bionic Man, the host is shown how robotic ankles are being developed to work just like a human’s. As they walk through the lab, a revelation is made that makes the demonstration immediately all the more fascinating…
It wasn’t that long ago when a person who was curious about something either had to forget about it and move on or actually do some research. And sometimes this research involved — horror of horrors — asking another human being about the topic at hand. There was no option to quietly and privately inquire of Google.
The closest approximation to the magic of the internet was to call the public library and ask your question to the local librarian. And while they wouldn’t ordinarily laugh at you outright, they were still sometimes secretly amused. And occasionally they’d write down your question for posterity’s sake. (That is, so that your posterity could laugh at you.)
That’s what librarians at the New York Public Library did, anyway. And now they are sharing many of the questions they received from the 1940′s and onward.
Here are some of the best.
How long do abandoned women live?
What is the U.S. population…of neurotic people?
Instagram celebrity Quis is known for showing up anywhere he wants to wearing roller-skates and…Superman underoos.
As you can tell, he loves popping up where you least expect him, so we’re not sure if we should be surprised that he was a special guest at a wedding in Lubbock, Texas this weekend, dressed in full “Superman Drawls” costume.
Parents just don’t understand…how to properly use their new-fangled fancy phone technology.
OK, some of them do, but there are plenty of us who regularly roll our eyes at their hilarious mistakes. Or in some cases, terrible dad jokes.
To be fair, though, autocorrect is a butch…
The next time Facebook reminds you of someone’s birthday and you realize you haven’t seen, heard, or even thought of that person in half a decade, instead of writing them a superfluous “Happy Birthday!!!” send them this song.
They’ll appreciate your honesty…
