Well, we suppose if Google Glass is going to become an actual thing, then a list of do’s and don’ts is necessary. Find out what a few of them are below, then read about a few other tidbits being chatted about online today.
“Glass is a piece of technology, so use common sense. Water skiing, bull riding or cage fighting with Glass are probably not good ideas.” — sites.google.com posts a guide of do’s and don’ts when it comes to wearing Google Glass. Some of the advice: Do ask for permission before using its camera features; Don’t “be creepy or rude (aka, a ‘Glasshole’).”
“I’d get a large bag of popcorn, a medium drink, and some skittles at the movie theater.” — redditor _Peanut_Buddha_ at reddit.com answers the question, “If you had to blow $1,000 in the dumbest way, how would you do it?” The commenter’s reply drew several responses of its own, including “Employee discount, no fair!” OK, tell us, what dumb thing would you spend $1,00o on?
“After examining a random one-month sample of 51 million English-language tweets from 14 million distinct user accounts, they came up with this conclusion: We curse a lot on Twitter.” — Jessica Leber at fastcoexist.com describes the results of a recent survey that found some surprising statistics about how and when humans swear online. It turns out, people swear more on Twitter, where their language is on public display, than they do in real life. “On average, one tweet out of 13 tweets will contain at least one cursing word,” said Wenbo Wang, a Ph.D. researcher at Wright State University.
“THAT’S MEAT IN THERE?!” — @awfulmillenial reacts jokingly on Twitter to news that Nestle is voluntarily recalling two of its Hot Pockets products as part of a larger meat recall. The beef in the “Philly Steak and Cheese” and “Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese” Hot Pockets may have been processed from diseased and unhealthy animals.
“I’m gonna look so cool drinking this with my fedora on smelling like ax body spray” — commenter secondamendmentman at gawker.com waxes sarcastic about a new brand of Miller beer called Fortune. The “spirited golden lager,” which features 7 percent alcohol, is being marketed to millennials, who have not been consuming as much beer as those from previous generations.
