Donut Selfie

The selfie has become such a global phenomenon that the word was even crowned as the Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year for 2013. But now it feels like 2013 was so long ago. With everyone constantly posting their selfies on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and SnapChat, the selfie could use a makeover.

Song Made Entirely From Auto-Correct

Back in the day, you had to live with your text screw ups. Then came auto-correct. At first it was helpful but a bit archaic. But each new iteration of operating systems and smartphones brings better and better auto-correct. Musician Jonathan Mann has made an entire song using just what appears on his new iPhone’s auto-correct. It’s actually a pretty good song. Not any worse than any other pop song these days…

Man Makes His Own Toll Road In England

After a landslide occurred on Kelston Road in England, several small towns were cut off from the city of Bath. There’s a detour, but it’s 14 long miles to get around. The reconstruction will take at least 3 more months. One man decided to take advantage of the detour by making his own toll road, explains Tom Scott. Genius! He owned the land by the closed road and turned the 14 mile detour into a one minute detour. Of course you have to pay. His very short toll road is even on Google Maps!
