  • Creepy 'Smiling' Worm Pulled from Bottom of the Sea

    Russian fisherman Roman Fedortsov has a habit of pulling ghoulish and bizarre creatures from the deep sea. And his recent trawl did not disappoint: Fedortsov recently captured an eerily "smiling" sea worm. In a video Fedortsov posted on Twitter last week, the creature's clown-smile turns creepy as it seemingly morphs inside out in time with an uncanny, high-pitched noise added by the fisherman. (This is not a noise the creature is making.) "If the creature could scream, it would scream like this," Fedortsov wrote in the post. ..." Bristle worms are so named because they have small bristles called chaetae...

    I received this voicemail today in Colorado. I think the GOP claiming to know who has or hasn't returned a ballot is creepy and inappropriate. No one has the information to say who has or hasn't returned a ballot. So, on top of being creepy, they are also being liars. I don't like the "Big Brother is watching you" creepy messages. Voicemail: "Hi this is Lindsey with the Colorado Republican committee. Our record show that you or someone in your household has not yet returned your ballot. Everyone has a voice in this election. Jared polis wants to bring his...
  • Warren accuses Trump of ‘creepy’ comments about her DNA test

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren suggested President Donald Trump’s comment about him personally administering a DNA test to her to prove her Native American heritage is “creepy.” She tweeted Monday that the president makes “creepy physical threats” about women who scare him, including her. “He’s trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself,” the Massachusetts Democrat responded on Twitter after Trump made the comment during an appearance in Georgia. “It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work.”(continued)

    The new feature, called Smart Reply, offers three short responses, like "It was great seeing you too," or "I'll look into it." Unlike standard auto-replies when on vacation, for instance, these are customized to an individual email based on its context.... The responses are automatically created using Google's artificial intelligence systems. Humans aren't reading people's emails, but machines are scanning them. Although Google stopped scanning email to target advertising in 2017, it still scans them to filter out junk mail, identify phishing scams and, now, to create suggested replies... Google's suggestions draw on what's in your email, such as the...

    Two weeks after Renard Matthews was tragically shot and killed in his New Orleans neighborhood, the 18-year-old looked exactly how he had in life. At his wake, he lay slumped in an office chair in front of a TV "playing" NBA2K with his hands wrapped around a PS4 controller. Clad in sunglasses, socks and flip-flops, and a Celtics jersey, he even had his favorite snacks—Doritos and root beer—within reach. And that’s just how his family wanted it.

    HBO host Bill Maher said Friday that he is "hoping for" an economic collapse because that is the only way the president's opponents can "get rid of Trump." Maher first asked guest Shermichael Singleton to asses the current economy under President Trump. "It is going well," Singleton answered. "For now." "Thank you, that’s my question,” Maher added. “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it." "I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts...

    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...

    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...

    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,...
