    Saved by a stomach bug. My wife got me some tainted Chipotle for dinner the night before, which caused me to spend most of yesterday on the toilet

    Say what you want but I've never gotten sick from Burger King. There's consequences for eating real food. I avoid it.

    Anyone ever wonder what happened to Kevin's plane ticket in home alone? They'd have noticed him gone if they had it, right?

    Someone on reddit showed this.

    I didn't know this, but these fuckin howler monkeys are among the loudest animals on earth.

    they make this god awful noise, and they do so at like 90dB which is the equivelant of a boein 737 at 1 mile away


    but even more unnerving than that is hearing a friggin mountain lion scream.

    holy shit!

    according to the poster, this guy is showing the gorilla picks of female gorillas


    The entire twitter logo is nothing but circles clipped

    EDIT: it should be added. not just 'circles' but 'well placed circles' because it could have ended up being this

    That's both awesome and as @Poindexter said, creepy af
    You know, what bothered me more than anything are the following:

    Equifax has been supplying potential employers not only your credit history, but they've quietly been running another company called 'The Work Number' that tracks, among other things:
    1. who you worked for
    2. what your salary was
    3. how many dependants you claimed
    4. what insurance you had
    5. and more (essentially every single bit of information that shows up on your pay stub)
    Then you factor in that the CIA is/was hacking our TVs and using the built in mics to record our conversations.

    Surveillance cameras can now detect not only people, and track their faces, they can now recognize the people.

    Add to that, a court subpoenaed the records from someone's Amazon Echo records to obtain conversation history

    Also don't forget the fact that Google and ALL on line voice recognition (meaning everything spoken to cortana, and google) is not only converted to text, but it's SAVED at the company that translated it. (to help you understand this, when you speak into the mic for voice recognition anywhere, that's recorded as a voice file, sent to Google or wherever, recognition done at Google, then sent back to your phone. no devices actually do that translation on the device itself. way too CPU heavy)

    This shit has gone far beyond scary. Big Brother has been here for years.

    the shit about Equifax running 'The Work Number' bothers me the worst. Your potential salary getting a new job is largely dependent on your hiring company negotiating your salary with you. You lose about 90% of your capability when they already know what you are/were making before. that is SO invasive and blatant I can't even describe it

    I'm the last guy in the world to buy into retarded conspiracies, and I don't think anything nefarious has happened. but it really bugs me that these things are happening and more so that we don't know about it

    the people recognition isn't really that new. The new cameras I'm buying to replace my old ones can do face detection already, and those are cheap!
