If you haven’t watched Comedy Central’s Nathan For You yet, then you are seriously missing out. No, I really mean it. I will sit here and wait for you to watch the “Dumb Starbucks” episode, and then you can return to read this post. I’m waiting…

Delaware doesn’t think you’re entitled to online privacy once you’re dead

Well, I’m not moving to Delaware anytime soon. As if the immense grief of my untimely passing wouldn’t shake my family members to the core, having access to all my online accounts (i.e. Facebook, Google, email) wouldn’t help. However, Delaware seems to think all your online accounts are more or less physical assets which should be distributed to your family members upon your death.

Is YouTube’s Music Key the streaming service for you?

Although there’s been some backlash lately against music streaming services, that doesn’t mean they’re slowing down. Just last month, I finally made the leap to Spotify Premium and I’d be lying if I said my life isn’t monumentally better as a result. Finally, I can listen to “Dancing On My Own” by Robyn even when I’m underground. So, it’s no surprise that YouTube has decided to try its hand at a streaming music subscription service. Although it’s not yet official, new screen leaks suggest that YouTube will be realeasing YouTube Music Key to compete in the streaming game.

It’s Tuesday morning, so you’re probably sexting

I was on a glorious vacation last week in my exotic hometown of Los Angeles, and it was amazing. However, it was like as soon as I declared I wouldn’t do any work on my vacation, the Internet gods deemed it would release all the most wonderful tidbits of writeable news. It was a tease, but now I’m back to remedy the situation. One of my favorite news tidbits was the new data that revealed when most people get their sext on. And while you would think it would be at nights or on the weekends, it is actually the VERY sexual Tuesday mornings that won the competition. Go on with your bad self, Tuesday mornings.

TinderUs thinks you should spend $50 to up your Tinder game

Well, OKCupid already let the cat out of the bag this week in terms of the UNIMAGINABLE AND TOTALLY UNEXPECTED SECRET TO THE ONLINE DATING WORLD. So what’s the secret? Everyone is shallow, and it should be no surprise that people care about looks as a top priority when it comes to dating. So, it’s a wonder that TinderUs thinks it can bamboozle gullible people into thinking a $50 Tinder consultation will change anything for them. That’s right, 50 dollars! That’s useful dating money just being thrown away!

According to a statement from Russian space agency Roscosmos, control has been restored over the orbiting Foton-M4 satellite. If you recall, the satellite was launched a week ago for the purpose of observing gecko mating habits in zero gravity.

Russia has lost control of a gecko sex satellite in space

Ground control to Major Tom: There’s lizards doing the dirty in space, and mission control has lost the ability to control it. In my web-perusing, I was lucky enough to come across this news gem. And it’s Friday, so I’m going to write about it. Consider it your Funky Friday Fun Fact.

Coolio will release new music through…Pornhub?!

Apparently, Pornhub is giving Coolio some models for his video “Take It To The Hub,” in exchange for an exclusive premiere of Coolio’s new tracks. Because isn’t that what you really want to see when you come to Pornhub? Coolio? I’ll take your suspicious silence as a yes!

Stop the madness: Motorola unveils digital tattoos

Are we that lazy? It seems smartphone-owners would rather not take the five seconds it requires to enter a PIN to unlock their phones. So, Motorola’s solution? Temporary tattoos! And they’re not even cute; they look like ringworm mixed with a cigarette burn. It’s like the ultimate mood-killer, but it’s totally worth it if you can unlock your phone in one second, right? WRONG! Admittedly, I was all on board with the fingerprint sensors from companies such as Apple and Samsung, but I was fine with the technology ending there.
