Trolling is mostly dumb, but sometimes it's an art.
President Donald Trump held a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday and, as he was speaking, someone tossed a bunch of tiny Russian flags, confetti-style, in front of the cameras streaming his speech to news networks.
As far as protests go, it certainly earns points for creativity.
The Trump campaign and administration officials have had a lot of unexplained contact with Russian officials, much of which is currently under investigation. A former campaign manager allegedly laundered money for a Ukrainian political party with ties to the Russian government. The FBI got a surveillance court order in the summer of 2016 to watch a Trump adviser because of an investigation into links between the Kremlin and the current president's campaign. And if you're looking for more...oddities...they're not hard to find. Read more...More about Speech, Donald Trump, Flags, Russia, and Watercooler
Look, let me start by saying Leonardo DiCaprio has done a lot to combat climate change.
He produced a climate change documentary titled Before the Flood that dropped in 2016. He has a foundation "dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants." The foundation has given $61 million to causes that align with that mission statement. He talks about climate change all the time. And, also, he was among the ~200,000 people in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to protest a White House that very much does not share his (scientifically valid) concern for the damage people are doing to the climate.

"I assume I'll be having sex today."
Of course, the game has nothing to do with sex, but O'Brien's theory is that VR is headed in one direction: sex. Therefore, the entire video demonstration features O'Brien taking every opportunity to figure out how his VR experience can somehow turn into sex, from fiddling with the privates of a dead guy to casting a lewd eye on a virtual tentacle monster ("That I could have sex with").
We know how excited some of us get by seeing sex in VR, but it probably won't really become a thing, even for O'Brien, until we get full-body haptic suits so you actually can feel all the totally wrong things you want to do in the virtual world. When that happens, all the VR jokes will cease, because people will be too busy finding out just how freaky they really are in the Matrix.
