Many companies these days have a social media presence to answer the questions, concerns and praise of their customers. And in this social media sphere, companies get a lot of stupidity hurled at them, this being the internet and all, and most of the time, this stupidity goes unanswered. But when one guy in the UK started slamming Domino’s Pizza on Twitter because he supposedly suffered pretty bad burns on his dick when he tried to make sweet, sweet love to his pizza pie, Domino’s was not shy to address the gentleman’s grievances.
Russia has been getting a tremendous amount of shit the last couple days on the Olympic accommodations in Sochi still being under serious construction right before the opening of the Games. Some of it’s real, some isn’t, but in a story not from The Onion, earlier today, Russian deputy prime minister Dmitry Kozak said that he knew everything was hunky dory in the half-built Sochi hotels, because of all the hidden surveillance cameras in the showers. Later, officials denied there are no shower cams, because ha ha that’s silly Russia would never do that. But when your country is getting hell for your lack of planning, you don’t send out a top government official to blame “western media” for making you look bad and then say shit like “because we’re secretly watching you shower”.
China’s brand new lunar rover, named Jade Rabbit was supposed to easily last three months, if not more, but it’s only been a month and it looks like the Rabbit is dead after encountering catastrophic problems.
The Moon exploration vehicle ran into problems due to the moon’s “complicated lunar surface environment”, Xinhua news agency said, citing science officials. The rover landed in December as part of China’s Chang’e-3 mission - the first “soft” landing on the Moon since 1976. It was expected to operate for around three months.
Professional psychics somehow get paid fairly good money just to spout random predictions by the hundreds, and when someone gets it right, it’s generally a matter of either it being 50/50 chance or something that was already pretty likely anyway. In January 2013, About.com showcased several professional psychics and their predictions for 2013, and the level of wrongness and inaccuracy is astounding. So astounding that they all beat the odds on just how wrong someone can be. How many of them predicted the Boston Marathon bombing? Zero, which is the exact number of psychics that predicted 9/11. However, in some of their bios, you’ll note they’re proud of things like predicting the re-election of Obama in 2008 (not psychic, just predictable considering the GOP field) and that in 2012 Princess Kate would be pregnant (as if the British royals have any other real purpose than breeding). Good job.
