Is Facebook changing its name to Meta the same as me renaming broccoli “cute little edible trees” to trick my kid into eating it? Because let me tell you it has never worked. At least the backlash is hilarious. (Esquire)

Nicole Byer’s podcast Why Won’t You Date Me is as funny as you’d expect. This woman does not ever disappoint and the world needs more of her. (Plex)
I really hope someone is generous enough to give these to the kids in our neighborhood. Parents deserve a treat too and cannabis candy is not cheap you guys.
Our earlier Tweet lacked context & has been deleted. The packaging of some cannabis edibles and hemp derivatives share an likeness to well-known snack foods and candy. If children mistakenly eat these products it could lead to an accidental overdose. https://t.co/df5Q39RgKj pic.twitter.com/l0dtqoZKCj

Believe it or not, Iran is more than just nuclear weapons and misattributed Rumi quotes on Instagram. There are beautiful landscapes and architecture like Tagh Behesht which is described as “a marriage between culture, history and the modern needs of the citizens”. (Inhabitat)
Meanwhile at my alma mater UC Santa Barbara a 97 year-old billionaire turned amateur architect donated $200 million dollars to the school on the condition that they follow his blueprint for a 11 story, windowless structure that will house 4,500 students exactly as it is. His goal is to force students out of their rooms so they collaborate with each other in common areas. Rich people are the worst. Just launch yourself into space like a normal billionaire already.

There’s a video game version of A Quiet Place coming out in 2022. I hope there’s a feature where you can be the monster and murder Jim Halpert the second he makes a sound. (Distractify)
Brian Cox giving zero fucks and going off about celebrities in his new upcoming memoir is my new kink. (Pajiba)
I’ve been saying this for years. Being caffeinated and drunk is the most efficient way to go about the day. Imagine what you can accomplish with all that uninhibited energy. (Lifehacker)

Gal Gadot and I are basically the same. She filmed parts of Wonder Woman while pregnant and I was also pregnant once. Twinsies. (The Gist)
I don’t think most people remember ever “delightedly flipping through the fresh pages of a new dictionary” as a kid. Can we stop with the “millenials are obsolete” conversation now? And I’m not just saying that because I’m an obsolete millenial. (LX)
On one hand, my dead dad would have found it hilarious if I was an influencer who used his funeral as a photoshoot. On the other hand, this girl is the absolute worst.

For $17 dollars you can take the Erotic Blueprint quiz featured on Gwyneth Paltrow’s (unnecessary) docuseries Sex, Love and Goop on Netflix. There’s a free basic version of the quiz if you’re cheap but still interested to learn what gets you horny. (Popsugar)
George Carlin is the GOAT and you’ll never convince me otherwise.
Sorry, can’t complete action at the moment
I’ve been angry before but not “cut the support rope of two painters working on a high rise” angry like this woman in Thailand. (AP)
A Chicago based startup raised $100 million dollars to replace glass refrigerator doors at Walgreens with “Cooler Screens” for absolutely no good reason whatsoever. They moral of this story is to never give up on your stupid, pointless dreams. (Core 77)
