The Most “Offensive” Web Animation Ever? Syeten is Profiting from the Prophet

The Most “Offensive” Web Animation Ever? Syeten is Profiting from the Prophet

This online animation series is hilarious!

But a serious point first:

Some of you will need to be careful though (depending on your background, e.g. nationality), and not share it on social media.

This funny web series on the early days of the Quran and of Islam is potentially even more ‘offensive’ to blasphemy kooks than anything Charlie Hebdo ever did. Continue Reading

Non-Wingnut Gamers/Roleplayers Sue Facebook: Alt-Right Garbage Clogging their Feed

Non-Wingnut Gamers/Roleplayers Sue Facebook: Alt-Right Garbage Clogging their Feed

The algorithm for Facebook boosted posts is causing severe trouble for the vanishingly small ‘political moderate’ faction of the Gamer/Roleplayer community.

Given the radical convergence between Zelda/World of Warcraft/Magic the Gathering fans and batshit NWO conspiracy theories, loony ten hour long rants on water fluoridation, and deranged ravings about FEMA camps, the Andorran Gay Illuminati and the Serbian Metrosexual Skull ‘n’ Bones Club…

Well, you could forgive Mark Zuckerberg for thinking it was perfectly acceptable to clog the Facebook feeds of gaming and roleplaying fans with the same conspiratorial horseshit…

Without getting into too many pedantic, quibbling distinctions over who was a wifebeating Bernie Bro Greenie and who was a sexually-frustrated basement-dwelling moron with self-diagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome. Continue Reading

Gambling on Smartphones Expected to Grow in the Next Several Years

Gambling on Smartphones Expected to Grow in the Next Several Years

While the title of this article might make it sound as though gambling on smartphones is not all that prevalent just yet, it is. The focus here is on just how much it’s expected to grow in the next few years.

Believe it or not, in just three short years -by 2020- the number of smartphones in the world is expected to double to 6.1 billion. That means about 70 percent of the world’s population is anticipated to have a smartphone by that time.

That Means More Access to Gaming

7 Ways to Make College Work Again

7 Ways to Make College Work Again

NOTE FROM WALLACE:

Those with sharp eyes will notice Brian didn’t say ‘Make College Great Again,’ but ‘Make College Work Again.’

Just thought I’d point that out, because everyone is accused of being pro-Trump or pro-Hillary, or even a Bernie Bro, on the most utterly arbitrary of pretexts…

Exclusive Tour Inside a B-17 Bomber

NOTE FROM WALLACE:

Those interested in military history will find this fascinating.

Not many people reading will have found themselves behind the controls of a B-17 bomber.

Perhaps a few have.

Do you have any memories?

Was it a museum piece like this, or for real?

From Blair Effect to Cameron? How Long Before Dave Starts Making Helpful Public ‘Interventions?’

From Blair Effect to Cameron? How Long Before Dave Starts Making Helpful Public ‘Interventions?’

One of the most hilarious things on Twitter is the apparently non-satirical interventions Tony Blair makes in public life.

But it turns out brave Dave hasn’t exactly retired to have a wank in his yacht either! Continue Reading

Boys Beware – Actual anti-LGBT propaganda from 1961

Boys Beware – Actual anti-LGBT propaganda from 1961

NOTE FROM WALLACE:

Brian has done a good public service by digging up this downright creepy moral panic video from 1961. This video is wrong on so many levels: conflating “homosexuality” with underage sex, medicalizing same-sex attraction, unnecessary fearmongering…

Ridiculous. Continue Reading

Ever Notice How Evil “Revenge of the Nerds” was?

Ever Notice How Evil “Revenge of the Nerds” was?

I mean, it was really, really ugly. There was abuse, rampant phobias, and a lot of really ugly situations.

Luckily we can break it down in under 4-minutes, and with a vengeance. Please to enjoy and make your voice heard in the comments below.

Hate it? Give it a thumbs-down, that’s understandable. I’m sad you feel that way, since I spent so much time making this, but that’s okay too. Continue Reading

Don’t Ever Ever Use GoDaddy… They Do Some good, But Mostly Fraud?

Don’t Ever Ever Use GoDaddy… They Do Some good, But Mostly Fraud?

Ages ago I helped a friend make a website. Today I got a renewal notification. Apparently I’ve been paying for his site for years without noticing it. I called to shut it down, and they told me tough luck. Nope, I’m required to keep paying for it just because.

Just to be clear, GoDaddy is a fraud organization on par with AT&T or AOL back in the day, where they’d make it impossible for you to stop getting billed. Same thing. Continue Reading

Four Things You Really Didn’t Know You Could Do Online

Four Things You Really Didn’t Know You Could Do Online

The World Wide Web is full of wonderful – but often very weird – things. Whilst there are undeniably some dark corners to the internet, there are also some downright hilarious and strange ones, too. We’re all online every day, often quite literally incessantly. But regardless of the number of selfies you have posted, likes gained and pins you have on Pinterest, there still are lots and lots of things we suspect you don’t know you can do online. Isn’t it time you shake things up a bit? Here are just four of them.

You Can Rent A Husband

“Ev the Handyman” (CC BY 2.0) by massless

Woah, there. Minds out of the gutter, please! Renting a husband is actually a really smart idea, particularly for all those lady executives out there who have a million and one other things to do than stuff around the house! Whether you’re a single parent, a career machine, or anything in between, sometimes it can be a bit of a blessing to have a man around. That shelf that you’ve been meaning to put up, or that fuse you just can’t figure out how to replace? He’ll do it. And the best bit? You can kick him to the curb when he’s done! And let’s make it clear: you can hire one of these handymen regardless of your gender or sexual preference too.

You Can Handle Invisible Money

Alright, alright… it’s exciting, but before you get your hopes up too much, there’s no invisibility cloak available like in Harry Potter (yet, but there soon might be). However, you can try your hand at using Bitcoin, which is arguably the most up-and-coming currency on the market. Online gambling is massively popular, but that can sometimes mean worrying about whether your money is safe online. The intangible digital currency of Bitcoin takes most of the safety and privacy concerns associated with using your cards online out of the equation. Yes, Bitcoin doesn’t exist as banknotes or coins at all. While it’s still accountable and perfectly usable, it’s in fact a sophisticated series of numbers, which all have to go through a digital ledger to be verified as a transaction. The technical dets are quite complicated, but the point is that this invisible money can be used to do all sorts of things online, including betting on sports like football and rugby. In fact, sites just like Sportsbet have chosen to go all in on Bitcoin, offering their services exclusively in this type of money which kind of doesn’t even feel real, since it never even touches your hands!

You Can Become A Lord Or Lady

Ever wanted to sound a bit posh? There’s no better way to do it than simply becoming a Lord or a Lady. It’s one of the best ways to gain respect without even showing your face, and, you guessed it – it’s easily done with just the click of a button. It used to be only those born into aristocracy who were able to boast such titles, through inheritance. A lucky few had the title bestowed upon them by royalty. However, these days, you can get your own fancy title in front of your name – so why not ditch the ‘Mr’ or ‘Ms’? UK law says you can call yourself anything you like, apparently… although what your friends will call you after they hear about this is another matter entirely!

You Can Get A Plush Replica Of Your Pet

“Blender Pet Again” (CC BY-SA 2.0) by DannoHung

It’s a fact – some of us are just way, way too attached to our pets! Whether your bundle of joy is far away or has sadly passed (or your pet is fine but you just can’t get enough), there is a solution for when you’re feeling cheated out of its cuddles. Clone it, of course – no, we don’t mean actual cloning, that’s too much for us, both ethically and financially. As if this wasn’t already the most obvious solution in the world, you can now get your very own stuffed replica, which will be able to give you love long after your real one can. Okay, sure, it’s not sentient. But hey, at least it doesn’t need to be fed (and it won’t ruin your carpets, either)!

There are some pretty awesome alternatives out there to mindlessly scrolling through social media – and these are just a few. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen online?

How Fake News is made (plus who, why and how)

How Fake News is made (plus who, why and how)

In the 2016 election season, Fake News websites sprung up quickly and in shocking numbers. Many believed their lies and voted based on them, but what IS fake news and how does it work?

How propagan-do???

Making headlines is hard, but making fake news is as easy as ABC (but in Russian). Fake news comes from Macedonia, Russia, these United States, and really everywhere. Continue Reading
