Looks like Hillary Clinton with a pink beard headlining this year’s WWDC.

The proper way to wear a chin mask. Make sure mouth and nose are uncovered for easy talking.

btw, has this person been decapitated?

Just wearing the latest version of one of Steve's black polo necks. Made using that black that is the blackest black ever.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Vanta black.
Is it weird that I seriously want to see the stuff in person?

It's an uncanny feeling seeing Vantablack on a car.

So it's true to the original then.

If Alexa ever gains sentience and murders my family it will be because of the frequency with which she's asked to play that song.

The original had a certain charm, and was actually singable.

It’s not awful enough to be worth googling. It’s more bad when taken in the context of the original.

It’s hyper-velocity EDM, with all the vocals pitch-shifted to death. Not the worst example of that I guess, but it’s so processed the connection to the original barely exists.

The first one was a meme song by accident. This time they're going hard on the memes and banking on nostalgia (and shock?) to pull it through.

My cynical take is they’re banking on her being legal.

Her latex/nail/jewelry getup seemed more shocking/weird than "child star going sexual."

Someone is about to be fired in the Ukraine military chain of command. At least, I hope so. Click through for the pictures.
Ukrainian authorities have found themselves buried in controversy after official pictures showed female soldiers practising for a parade in heels.

Ukraine is preparing to stage a military parade next month to mark 30 years of independence following the Soviet Union’s breakup, and the defence ministry on Friday released photographs of fatigue-clad women soldiers marching in mid-heel black pumps.
Definitely ridiculous in my opinion. Those soldiers signed up to fight for their country, or pay college debt, etc. Not to be fashion models in a comedy show.

Ukraine's Ministry of Defense has defended its decision to train female soldiers to march in high heels, following an outcry from local lawmakers.
First law of holes: if you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

Someone in the Ministry is oblivious to this - or has a financial arrangement with a high-heels factory. They're still training real soldiers to march a parade in heels. I've yet to think of a plausible reason to do this.

For whatever it’s worth, first class militaries don’t have parades, because governments with first class militaries don’t have anything to prove.

I’ve always assumed this is why the Pentagon made sure Trump’s parade never made it off the ground.

I never met this person, but I happen to know his mom, and that’s my grade school mentioned in the article (though it was in a different location when I went).



He wasn’t in a gang as far as I know. That’s kind of a sketchy area. I would feel uncomfortable being there at 2:30a.

Thank you!

Just one of those completely out of nowhere things, and, bizarre I somehow have multiple connections to it.
