Engineer Makes Ham And Cheese Sandwich That Looks Like Vin Diesel

This celebrity sandwich sculpture really cuts the mustard. It should: It’s a ham and cheese sandwich that looks amazingly like actor Vin Diesel. The intricately carved deli-cacy is the work of William Osman, a mechanical/electrical engineer in Ventura, California. Osman’s speciality is posting YouTube videos that he describes as having “dubious quality, questionable integrity and unethical delivery.” Naturally, a guy with those attributes couldn’t turn down a challenge from a viewer who wanted him to make a Vin Diesel deli sandwich “using laser-cut cross sections of laser-cut ham.” Osman used a computer program to create a model of Diesel’s upper torso. He then used the laser to cut layers and layers of the cheapest supermarket ham he could buy. Those layers were then assembled into Vin Diesel’s likeness.

Please Stop Asking Morgan Freeman To Record Your Voicemail Messages

No,  Morgan Freeman doesn’t want to record your damn voicemail message. On Wednesday’s “ Late Night ,” the Hollywood actor revealed “it gets exhausting” when fans approach him for a customized answerphone greeting. “You know, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said, ‘Hello, this is so and so… is not willing to come to the phone right now,’” he told host Seth Meyers . Nowadays, Freeman said he’ll only record a message if he’s lost “a big bet,” such as the one he forfeited  to Zach Braff , who directed “Going in Style” ― in which he stars alongside Michael Caine .

Living With The Incivility Of Trolls Online And Surviving

Anyone is capable of troll behavior, according to recent research from Stanford University and Cornell University. Wake-up on the wrong of bed, having a bad day or simply become irate over an online discussion and your fingers may go flying before your brain kicks in to bring it to a screeching halt. Did you know according to a UCLA study , people that overshare online are less like to receive empathy or help from others if they are being harassed or abused digitally by trolls? So humble braggers beware, if you’re constantly exaggerating (or oversharing) about your life events and suddenly find yourself as a target of online harassment, don’t be shocked if some of your friends aren’t stepping in to defend you. Trolls have been with us since the dawn of time; there will always be some incivility Pew Research Center and Elon University’s Imagining the Internet Center just released a new study that surveyed more than 1,500 technologists and scholars about the forces shaping the way people interact with one another online

Say Goodbye To Twitter Eggs, Not Trolls

Twitter eggs have finally hatched, and from their shells have emerged amorphous human blobs. On Friday, Twitter announced that its iconic eggs would no longer be the default profile pictures for new users. Instead, they’ll be replaced with the silhouette of a “ generic, serious, unbranded ” avatar. What a time to be alive! In a press release, Twitter explained that they hope the new change will prevent people from sticking with the “fun and cute” egg, and spur them to quickly switch the setting to something more personalized.  “ An empty state , essentially, is what we wanted it to be,” senior manager of product design Bryan Haggerty told Co.Design. The eggs are perhaps most synonymous with internet trolls hell-bent on harassing other users under a cloak of anonymity.  “We’ve noticed patterns of behavior with accounts that are created only to harass others ― often they don’t take the time to personalize their accounts,” Twitter’s statement said. “This has created an association between the default egg profile photo and negative behavior, which isn’t fair to people who are still new to Twitter and haven’t yet personalized their profile photo.” The new change doesn’t address online harassment, but instead encourages new users to distance themselves from the harassers
