I can't stop laughing at this billboard in Yakima, WA:

#COOLBYDEFAULT

A group of about 60 local youngsters helped craft the message, which they thought would be effective in their demographic. [source]

According to the Healthy Youth Survey, in 2016, roughly 19 percent of local Hispanic 10th-graders had used pot compared with 17.6 percent of non-Hispanic students. [source]

[pause]

I suppose "We don't need pot to have fun. We're not Hispanics…" would read worse.


"We're Detroit by default."

Eater bracketed "the Most Truly Awful Restaurant Names out there":

Blunch won.

This tournament needed a bracket of just boba shop names.

In my area alone: E Tea, i-Tea, Inteanet, Teaquation, Tpumps, Cafe LaTTea, Bobabia, Bubble Loca, Meow Tea, What8ver Express…

Idea: One day, most of Earth's population disappears, leaving behind "the 1%." What happens when the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world only have each other to exploit?

While one percent of Earth's population is still 75 million people, how many of them can fly a plane?


Idea: One day, the President of the United States of America wakes up inside a solid, transparent, 20ft x 20ft x 20ft cube at the foot of Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

The only opening in the cube is a hole 2cm in diameter on the top of the cube, through which air, food, and water can pass.

A sign on one side of the cube reads: "The only way to open this cube is by dropping a nuclear bomb on it from 20,000ft above. Do not try to open this cube otherwise. You will fail. Do not try to move this cube. You will fail."

All attempts to open the cube otherwise or move the cube fail.

The cube is shielded from public view.

In addition to contaminating the capital of the United States of America, you kill its president by dropping a nuclear bomb on the cube, but if you don't bomb the cube, then the President of the United States of America will rot inside outside the United States Capitol forever.


Idea: 28 Days Later, but the virus only infects millennials.
