At least this store sign will tell you the bitter truth about ‘No Man’s Sky’

16 days ago

Sad, but true.

Oh, No Man’s Sky. You showed so much promise.

The hotly-anticipated game looked incredible with its infinite universe and seemingly revolutionary gameplay. But its players have found it to be a few cents short of a dollar. A Happy Meal with no toy. In other words, boring and disappointing.

So, as players fume over a game that fails to live up to expectations, you’d expect game stores to do what they can to sell off all stock of No Man’s Sky quickly, before the little Johnnies of the world realise that it isn’t good.

But Australian/New Zealand electronics retailer JB Hi-Fi won’t lie to you, as demonstrated by this hilarious sign posted on the /r/gaming subreddit by hotsqueakybiscuits, calling No Man’s Sky “the best refund simulator of 2016.”

“10/10 would refund again,” the sign adds.

JB Hi-Fi are well known for their cheeky store displays, such as this sarcastic “games for girls” shelf put up a few months back, with many more available documented at this website, JB Hi-Fi Reviews.

Now, where did that receipt go?

This Kid Was Totally Brutal At The London Marathon And It’s Hilarious

1 month, 3 days ago

Most of us have nothing but respect for the people who manage to run a marathon. I mean, I’m not sure I could even walk 26 miles, never mind run themand look happy aboutit too.

This little rebel however, saw his chance to wreak havoc – and he grasped it with both hands. Well, technically just one hand. And there was definitely no grasping going on.

Definitely the most uninspiring spectator ever, he was called a ‘little sh*t’ by the person recording the video as he offers a hand out to runners for a high five but then retracts it and leaves them hanging. A move that brings back vivid memories from our days at primary school.

Hey, you snooze you lose, guys.

It’s the one guy who goes out of his way to come and get a high five, before getting rejected, that really makes your heart ache…

This Guy Live Tweeted His Attempt To Get A Free Dessert, And It’s Hilarious

1 month, 16 days ago

Until today, we’d have thought that the best way to get a free dessert at a restaurant – well – would be to pretend that it’s your birthday.

Yes, you might have to endure the whole place singing “Happy Birthday” to you, but then you just blow out a few candles and wham, bam, thank you mam – a free ice-cream sundae.

Well, when Twitter user Elan Gale suggested a better way to get free pudding, one Kyle Baldinger decided that he’d try it out…

Amazing.

How A Meme Became A Currency And Paid For The Jamaican Bobsleigh Team

2 months, 16 days ago

You all know bitcoin, presumably. That internet currency that was big a while back and now isnt as big but is still quite big thats really the only way to describe it. Its secure, untraceable and drugtraffickers100% love it.

Well theres another online currency thats been growing from strength to strength recently that you might not have heard about. Dogecoin

To tell you about this, were going to have to go into its history. And we mean right to the beginning.

So we all know Doge. The jovial, yet slightly confused, shiba inu that took the internet by storm a couple of years back But who is Doge?

In October 2010, someone posted a picture of a corgi onto reddit with the caption LMBO LOOK AT THIS F*****N DOGE. That was the conception on the word. From then, people all over the web were posting pictures of dogs and calling them DOGES.

Meanwhile, a Japanese school teacher had a blog where she shared pictures of her shiba inu, Kabosu, which, for the most part, everyone ignored.

Until July 2013, when Shiba Inus had taken over the doge scene and someone dug up that famous picture of Kabosu and used it for their meme. So Kabosu become the face of doge.

So thats enough history on a meme. Now to the currency.

In December that year, a member of a Bitcoin forum, named Dogecoin, introduced his new e-currency, based on the meme, as a satirical take on Bitcoin.

No one took it seriously, obviously. Its money based on a funny picture of a dog, afterall. That is until there was a crowdfunding opportunity that the whole community jumped on. The Jamaican bobsleigh team looked set to qualify for the 2014 Socchi Winter Olympics but they couldnt afford all of the other stuff.

They need $40,000 for equipment and travel. 27,000,000 dogecoins were raised over 2-3 days (over $30,000) so the team could go.

Its like Cool Runnings without the inspirational montages and witty tte–ttes.

They also raised $7000 in a few hours to send an Indian Shiva K.P. Keshavan to the same Olympics to compete in the luge as his country couldnt afford it anymore.

Doge coin used to be dependant on bitcoin as you used to needed to buy doge through converting it from bitcoin. Now you can use actual real money and everything!

Its now the fifth biggest online currency and its growth is absolutely huge.

From something that started 100% as a joke, it’s pretty cool that they’ve managed to make a difference like they have. I mean it makes me feel totally useless but whatever…

10 Cloverfield Lane Will Have You Writhing The Whole Way Through

3 months, 11 days ago
Nowadays the film industry seems tospend so much period building up the hype that by the time a movie makes the big screen weve insured a teaser, three trailers, and pretty much know exactly whats going to happen including spoilers .

10 Cloverfield Lane is a freshening change from that somewhat saturating tradition. It wasnt until January, merely two months prior to the opening of the films release, that we were even made aware that it existed.

Its not really a sequel to the alien attack movie Cloverfield, but more like a distant, less showy relative, with both having spawned from JJ Abrams production company Bad Robot. Whereas Cloverfield showed us the Statue of Libertys head crashing into the street as a whole city disintegrated, 10 Cloverfield Lane barely leaves the underground bunker in which most of the film is set.

Being less showy doesnt mean its any less entertaining, though. The movie will have you either writhe or jumping out of your seat from before the opening credits are over, right up until the very end. It’s director Dan Trachtenberg’s first feature length cinema, but he pulls ofthis spiraling thriller as though he’s done it a thousand times before.

The film starts out with Michelle( Mary Elizabeth Winstead) dismissing bellows from her fianc as she drives in her car. After being run off the road she wakes up in an empty room where she soon gratifies her captor or saviour Howard( John Goodman) who tells her that the world outside is a nuclear desert, and that they must live underground for at the least a year to remain safe. We live Michelles dread with her, questioning the legitimacy of Howards claims and motivations as she slowly tries to decipher exactly what “the hells going on”. Is Howard right? Does leaving the bunker entail certain demise? Or is something more sinister happening?

The third character in the mix is the jovial Emmett( John Gallagher Jr ), a local worker who has known Howard for some time. Emmett provides the only glimpses of light relief from the incredibly weird and intense Howard.

John Goodman plays Howard brilliantly, his huge frame and sketchy stance combining well to intimidate the whole way through. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr are equally as good, and its the three of them that elevate this film from a tight script and well thought out idea to something that really get under your skin.

The less you know before ensure it, the more you will enjoy the film, so we wont be revealing any spoilers here. What we will say is that if your heart rate and stress levels don’t go up during the course of its movie then you really are made of stone.

10 Cloverfield Lane is out in cinemas this Friday .

Hundreds Of Loved Up Irish Fans Serenade A Beautiful French Girl

4 months, 8 days ago
Have you ever seen person in public so beautiful that you’ve wanted to stop and sing to them until they eventually and inevitably get off with you? No, me neither- we don’t live in High School Musical … still, it’s fun to find hot people .

That’s what happened in Bordeaux when, after a 3-0 loss to Belgium, Ireland fans, still in high spirits, spotted a lovely blonde French girl and took it upon themselves to serenade her.

If ever you’ve wanted to see a video that compounds Irish stereotypes, this is it. Never have you heard so much slurred singing and the mumbled, incorrect terms of two ballads that are pretty easy to recollect … funny though.

One guy managed to sneak a cheeky kiss at the end; albeit one on the cheek but, you know … she’s hot so it all counts.

Odds on that he thought there’d be some sort of Richard Curtis style holiday romance after that, though … Seems like Ireland are pretty much out of the Euros so he requires something to cheer him up!

Vogue Brazil’s Paralympics Photoshoot Is Unbelievably Offensive

5 months, 13 days ago
The Paralympics is an inspiration. Each athlete that takes part is overcoming a disability to compete and show us that with the right attitude, anything is possible .

People such as Tanni Grey-Thompson, who has won 16 Paralympic medals, show their fans across the globe that you can combat against adversity and still be a win, still be proud of yourself.

That’s why Vogue Brazil’s decision touse able bodied performers in their campaignis so disappointing. Instead of featuring Paralympic athletes, they chose to photoshop Cleo Pires and Paulo Vilhena, actors and Paralympic ambassadors, to appear as though they havedisabilities. It went with the caption “we are all Paralympians.”

The campaign is aimed to tie in with the upcoming Paralympics in Rio and increase ticket sales. The shoot wasactually based on two Paralympians, Bruna Alexandre and Renato Leite, but for some bizarre reason the athletes were not featured on the main pages.

Pessoal, Venho esclarecer que estou super orgulhosa de fazer parte desta campanha que a revista #Vogue comeou a divulgar as primeiras imagens desse lindo trabalho. Nossos Embaixadores Paralmpicos Cleo Pires e Paulo Vilhena , nos ajudaram a intensificar e a propagar a campanha com intuito de gerar visibilidade ao Movimento Paralmpico e convocar a torcida brasileira para marcar presena nos Jogos Paralmpicos Rio 2016. Gostaria, de enfatizar que #SomosTodosIguais e por isso a Cleo Pires me representa. Nos prximos dias, vocs tero acesso completo da campanha. #VemComAGenteBrasil e espero contar com toda a torcida brasileira nas arenas assim torcendo, vibrando, cantando e comemorando conosco! #CarregoNoPeito o #CoraoParalmpico. @cleopires_oficial @vilhenap @ocpboficial

Criticism has been widespread . Vogue Brazil have distanced themselves from the campaign, saying that the idea came from Pires.Speaking to HuffPostUK, they said 😛 TAGEND

“Vogue respects the opinions of readers who disagreed with the campaign format, but reiterates its commitment to promote the importance of Paralympic games. We will continue to support all of the Paralympic committee initiatives that can increase the number of attendees at the Paralympic games.”

Why not just feature the real people that inspired the campaign?

Mix Nerdy Jokes And Underwear And You Get PUNDERWEAR

6 months, 5 days ago
Underwear. When you think about it, it’s more of a means to an end, really. No one genuinely want’s to have to wear it .

It’s not without it’s sub-genres, all as pointless as each other- Boxers, briefs, thongs, boy shorts, etc etc … Even sexy underwear isn’t as sexy as no underwear. So what’s the incentive to wear it?( other than social constructs that we really should follow in this case …)

Puns. Plainly. Nerd puns. Nerd puns with the prospect of sexupon the removal of saidunderwear. That’s the stuff. Have a look…

Shut up. I always sit with a pillow on my lap.

The last one took us longer to work out than we care to admit…
