    FLASHBACK 2014: Facebook caught manipulating users: A recent study conscripted Facebook users as unwitting participants during a weeklong experiment in direct emotional manipulation. The study set out to discover if the emotional tone of a users’ News Feed content had an impact on their own emotional makeup, measured through the tone of what they posted to the social service after viewing the skewed material. Nearly 700,000 Facebook users were shown either more positive, or more negative content. The study found that users who were given more positive news feeds posted more positive things, and users who were given more negative...

    THIS is the horrifying moment a crazed performance artist sliced flesh from the bodies of two assistants before frying it in a pan and FEEDING it to them on a bizarre live Facebook stream. Cops in Latvia are now probing barmy Arturs Bērziņš's show after a flurry of complaints from disgusted viewers. The 33-year-old artist staged the performance - named 'Eschatology' - on March 6th at a posh museum in capital Riga. Stomach-churning footage shows Bērziņš pulling on a white forensic suit before approaching two assistants with a scalpel. He then cuts a chunk of meat from each of their...

    Owners of Amazon Echo devices with the voice-enabled assistant Alexa have been pretty much creeped out of their damn minds recently. People are reporting that the bot sometimes spontaneously starts laughing — which is basically a bloodcurdling nightmare.

    According to reports that former Vice President Joe Biden is making no attempt whatsoever to deny, the internet’s favorite uncle is moving closer and closer to a formal 2020 presidential bid. Of course, his vigilance in criticizing the dealings of the Trump administration, increasingly frequent appearances on late night shows, vocal social media presence and, most recently, an appearance at Glamour’s Women of the Year summit in New York on Monday hardly leave room for doubt, but Politico’s report last week made it start to feel real. And yet, speaking of the women’s summit, beneath the former veep’s cuddly and...
  • Tim Kaine: Vegas Attacker Stopped ‘Because He Didn’t Have a Silencer’

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) claims the attacker who opened fire on Las Vegas concert goers was only stopped “because he didn’t have a silencer on his weapon.” According to the Washington Post, Kaine asked, “Can you imagine what this would have been if he had silencers on those weapons?” His use of the word “silencer” is an echo of other leftists like Rosanne Cash and Gabby Giffords, both of whom use the word “silencer” to describe suppressors.

    President Trump is not leading, according to former Vice President Joe Biden. "We are living through a battle for the soul of this nation," Biden wrote in an op-ed for The Atlantic - and Trump is not up to the task. The former vice president, like many Americans, is dismayed by Trump's response to the violence that transpired in Charlottesville, VA a few weekends ago. One young woman died in that confrontation between white supremacists and counter protesters. Trump, critics say, fumbled his message condemning the racist neo-Nazi groups. By calling out "many sides," and then "both sides" in his...

    In the first excerpts from Hillary Clinton's highly anticipated upcoming memoir, the former Democratic presidential candidate said her "skin crawled" during a debate with Donald Trump. In audio clips of Clinton reading from the book, "What Happened," which were first obtained by MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday, Clinton recounted her thoughts as she toyed with the idea of telling her Republican rival to "back up, you creep" as he stood behind her during the second presidential debate. "My skin crawled," Clinton said. "It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching 'well,...

    As if Twitter needed another reason to swoon over the former Vice President of the United States, this time Biden is back on everyone’s twitter feed because of a kiss. On Wednesday, Morgan State University graduate Brieana Carter posted the six second selfie video she took with Biden at her graduation on May 20th. In the video, Biden smiles for the camera but then turns to give Carter a tender peck on the cheek. Totally caught off guard, Carter lets out an emphatic scream as the former VP walks away.

    Washington Post ^ | 05/11/2017 | By Adam Taylor
    Emmanuel Macron is 24 years younger than his wife, and the incoming French president is exasperated that people keep talking about it. Discussing the assumptions and rumors about his relationship his wife, Brigitte, Macron told Le Parisien newspaper this week that “if I had been 20 years older than my wife, nobody would have thought for a single second that I couldn’t be.” It's a sentiment many French women seem to relate to. Speaking to The Washington Post's Mary Jordan ahead of the election, some suggested that the Macrons' marriage was social “revenge” for years of powerful men seeking younger...

    Vice President Joe Biden offered an olive branch to Donald Trump's administration on Wednesday, meeting with Vice President-elect Mike Pence and offering his full support as the Indiana governor prepares to move to Washington. The duo, along with Biden's wife, Jill, and Pence's wife, Karen, met for around two hours at the vice president's residence, having lunch and taking a tour of the home. After the meeting, Biden jokingly said he would be available to Pence as "senior staff" as he makes his move from Indiana to DC. "You can be smart and reject most of my ideas, but I...

Kaine was joined at his rally in Fairfax by Vice President Joe Biden, who assured supporters that the country's future has never looked brighter. "We're America, we don't scare easily. We're America, we never bend, we never bow, we never break," Biden said.
  • The Onion: What a creep! (with AP & Getty photos )

    OK, I've never really seen or heard this guy up closely up until tonight. Not only did he appear to be very conniving, but creepy as well. Then, I go onto the Drudge page and see this picture. My head snapped. This guy is in Howard Dean territory and look like he belongs in a halfway house. This is what's supposed to pass as a co-leader? Ronald Reagan must be rolling in his grave.
