From fartasaurusrex1: Etsy knows just what to get mom this Mother's Day.
Finally, a way to not keep up with the Kardashians.
A social media guru has announced that he is working on a browser extension similar to AdBlock which will filter out any news stories or references to the Kardashian family.
Shamsi describes why he’s building the app on the website.
We don’t care about how Kanye & Kim didn’t care when Amy Schumer ‘fell over’.
We don’t care about who the Kardashians are or aren’t sleeping with.
We don’t care that Kim dyed her hair blonde.
We don’t care about the Kardashians.
While he expresses disgust for most of the family, he makes an exception for Bruce Jenner.
“We do however care about raising awareness of transexuality, the one benefit of the Kardashians,” he writes.
The program hasn’t actually been created yet, but he appears to be recruiting coders to help out with the project if you are so inclined.
After KardBlock is complete, he says he will be working on one to block Justin Bieber as well.
Shamsi made headlines last year for putting his resume on Tinder.
From Daily What:
Planning a wedding is now as simple as putting together BILLY the bookcase.
IKEA is offering a new service called “Wedding Online” which allows you to virtually tie the knot with that special someone through video chat accompanied by all of your friends worldwide.
All you have to do is choose the location/background for both the ceremony and the reception, pick a time and date, answer a few questions, fill out some legal paperwork and invite your guests via Facebook.
Some themes you can choose from include an urban ceremony on a rooftop overlooking a city, a circus, a fairytale wedding in a forest and a more traditional indoor ceremony surrounded by white pillars and curtains.
On the big day, everyone just pops open their laptop and logs into the video chat in whatever dress code you decide. Although, considering the video only shows guests’ heads (backwards on their bodies no less), it would appear that pants are always optional.
From the website:
The best sort of love is easy and effortless. And promising one another eternal devotion at a wedding should be just as simple. That’s why we’ve created a new type of wedding that’s neither expensive nor complicated.
IKEA also advertises some of its merchandise when you explore the various venues using their interactive tool.
And there’s one catch. The company notes in fine print that “if you want your marriage to be legally binding, the bridal couple, the marriage officiator, and two witnesses need to be in the same room during the actual ceremony.”
So the two of you have to sit awkwardly with a priest at a table staring into individual web cams instead of each other’s actual eyes.
And while it doesn’t mention it anywhere on the site, it’s only natural that you would cater it with Swedish meatballs and Swedish Fish.
Great news for anyone in the market for a 1999 Chevy Cavalier with the ability to cause “involuntary abstinence” and a listed condition of “I hate this car”: the Craigslist ad of your dreams was just posted. Your (rusty) needle lies in the haystack known as Kenosha, Wisconsin, and it will set you back a mere $700:
p>Because these things tend to get yanked, here’s a screen grab of the lovely ad or posterity’s sake:
From Viral Viral Videos:
Online services like Amazon have changed the way we go shopping. Now, instead of heading out to the store when you run out of toilet paper, you can simply go online and order it on Amazon. But that isn’t fast and convenient enough.
So now, Amazon has just debuted their latest service for Prime members called Amazon Dash Button. You simply connect the button to your phone and click it when you run out of a certain item. Before you know it, your item will be waiting for you at your door. And yes, it appears to be real. But the Internet is still wary that it’s an April Fools joke.
From The Daily What:
Google is celebrating April Fool’s Day a little early.
A new option on Google Maps lets you turn the world into a playable game of Pac-Man.
From the support page:
Welcome, Player 1! You can now play the classic arcade game PAC-MAN in Google Maps with streets as your maze. Avoid Blinky, Pinky, Inky, (and Clyde!) as you swerve the streets of some famous places around the world. But eat the pac-dots fast, because this game will only be around for a little while.
You can play anywhere with enough streets by clicking the icon in the bottom left corner of the screen, but Google also offers some clues to the best locations where a special Pac-Man marker has already been place.
- Don’t drop the ball on the eve of your victory!
- Triumph is délicieux.
- Does a Galaxian bonus await at the top of those 272 steps?
- Chomp your way to independence down seven lanes of July.
- PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN can’t agree on which side is prettier: the American or the Canadian. Which side do you fall on, eh?
- After a chat with the Sphinx, PAC-MAN sounds more like “Dokki Dokki”.
- Pause game play to admire Chagall’s stained glass windows and have a bit of chocolate.
- Can you score 10^(10^100) points?
- Whether they’re flashing blue or sporting their natural colors, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are always kakkoii. Even Vogue agrees they’re living in the trendiest of neighborhoods.
- Previous PAC-MAN lives don’t get to rest in a white marble mausoleum.
- Head to the valley of the sun and earn your grade in the art of the game.
- How well can you navigate the radiating streets of the distrito federal?
- Victory is like gothic glockenspiel musik to our ears.
- Pay special attention to Blinky – he might blend in with the dreaming red kangaroos!
- You’ll find the Beach PAC-MAN World Cup here before long.
You can expect the entire Internet to be flooded with April Fool’s Day pranks like this on Wednesday.
It says the game will only be available for a limited time, but hopefully they decide to keep the Pac-Man hack as a permanent option.
