Drunk Man Arrested For Tackling Parking Lot Security Robot

The battle for the future of humanity escalated last week, thanks to a drunk man who tackled a security robot in a Silicon Valley parking lot. Next stop: “The Matrix,” if we’re lucky. Otherwise? Probably “The Terminator.” Jason Sylvain, 41, attacked the crime-fighting K5 droid in the parking lot of robot manufacturer  Knightscope  the evening of April 19, Mountain View Police Department spokeswoman Katie Nelson told HuffPost. She said an employee for Knightscope detained Sylvain before officers got to the scene. “When we arrived, we met with Sylvain, and as we were speaking with him, he appeared confused, had red, glassy eyes and a strong odor of alcohol emitted from him,” Nelson said.

Why Sheryl Sandberg Decided To Speak Openly About Losing Her Husband

Nearly two years ago, Sheryl Sandberg poured 1,743 words of raw emotion into a   Facebook post that essentially made everyone on the internet cry. Her husband, Dave Goldberg, had died suddenly at the age of 47, not even 30 days earlier. The calendar marked the end of the traditional Jewish mourning period for spouses, but she hardly felt done with grief. Sandberg wasn’t even sure she would hit publish, the Facebook executive told HuffPost last week. She wrote feverishly, put it aside and went to bed. The post was her desperate attempt to connect with friends and coworkers from whom she felt increasingly isolated in her mourning.

He’s The Last Male Northern White Rhino On Earth, And He’s Now On Tinder

In his Tinder profile, Sudan is described as “one of a kind” — and that’s not a baseless boast.  He’s the last male northern white rhino on the planet and, as his profile explains, “the fate of my species literally depends on me.” On Tuesday, Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy and dating app Tinder announced a joint campaign to raise awareness about Sudan’s plight, and to raise funds to support efforts to save the northern white rhino from extinction. “We partnered with the conservancy to give the most eligible bachelor in the world a chance to meet his match,” Matt David, Tinder’s head of communications, said in a statement.  “I perform well under pressure. I like to eat grass and chill in the mud,” reads Sudan’s Tinder profile.  “6 ft tall and 5,000lbs if it matters.” Starting Tuesday, Tinder users in 140 countries could stumble upon Sudan’s profile as they swipe through potential matches. Users will have the option to swipe right on Sudan; if they do, they’ll see a message that features a link where they can donate. Sudan, who lives at the conservancy  where he’s protected 24/7 by armed guards , is one of three remaining northern white rhinos on Earth. The other two — females named Najin and Fatu — also live at the sanctuary

King Joffrey Hugging A Pug Sparks ‘Game Of Thrones’ Photoshop Battle

Funny is coming. Actor Jack Gleeson made quite the lasting impression with his portrayal of the ruthless baby king Joffrey Baratheon in Seasons 1 through 3 of “ Game of Thrones .” His performance was so good that it’s hard for many “GoT” fans to separate the actor from the character. This means that when Gleeson posted a photo of himself  hugging a pug on Twitter in January 2016, it’s hard to not see Joffrey, a powerful, bloodthirsty brat, cuddling an innocent animal. Puppy love pic.twitter.com/nBNGwGpcD9 — Jack Gleeson (@JackGleeson_) January 25, 2016 On Monday, the picture made its way to Reddit’s popular Photoshop Battle thread , and, let’s just say Reddit users also had a hard time separating Gleeson from the Iron Throne.
