Australia's bird of the year is the enemy of children and cyclists

It wasn't just Moonlight that swooped in by surprise at an awards ceremony.

Earlier this year, New Zealanders voted for the kea as their favourite bird, a cheeky olive-green parrot. Aussies have opted for a bird that's the enemy of cyclists, walkers and children everywhere.

American football won't last much longer, because it's killing itself

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 23:50

Football is violent, but the public's disgust with the damage caused by America's most popular game might finally have reached a critical point this season. The sport is killing itself, and the most powerful arbiter of its practice, the NFL, might just let that death happen by not taking care of its players.

Football's high potential for injury is obvious whenever it's played, but a particularly egregious moment of official malpractice came during the Houston Texans-San Francisco 49ers matchup on Sunday, which drew fresh rounds of criticism, for good reason.  Read more...

There's a ton of snow in Buffalo, and also a football game if you can see through it

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 20:13

If you hadn't heard, snow finally came to the Northeast this weekend. 

The wintry pounding continues in frigid Buffalo, New York, with intense lake effect snow bands — and even some lightning — hitting the area.

Such snow bands occur when cold air blows over the relatively warm water of a lake picking up moisture, and dumping it as snow in downwind areas (h/t to Mashable weather wizard Andrew Freedman). Buffalo, unsurprisingly, is one of the most lake effect prone cities in the U.S., due to to its proximity to Lake Erie.

But it's Sunday, folks, and there's football to be played. Read more...

The latest 'Ready Player One' trailer is filled with a bunch of new geeky references

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 18:50

New Ready Player One trailers are quickly turning into a game of "spot the reference." Sure, there's plenty of excitement for director Steven Spielberg's first crack at live-action sci-fi/fantasy since 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

But let's be real: Many of us are here, poring over the new trailers, to see which of our favorite characters surface. In this latest look at the March 30 release, I can see Blanka and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, multiple Battletoads, Overwatch's Tracer, a silhouette that could either be King Kong or Donkey Kong, horror movie murder doll Chucky, and RX-78-2 Gundam, plus a bunch of others that popped up in the previous trailer.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 18:36

Cards can make people laugh, and they can make them rich. 

We're not talking about gambling. Rather, it's another round of Cards Against Humanity trying to "save America" with a fundraising campaign.

For day three of the effort, Cards Against Humanity attempted to tackle wealth inequality. The issue is pervasive not only in America but also in economies worldwide. It explores how some people are rich, others are poor, and where should the line by drawn.

A kid questioned his bullies and got support from the entire internet

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 18:22

Bullies suck, but sometimes the best way to deal with them is to call out their deplorable actions in public. One kid and his mother took to the internet to talk about his bad treatment at the hands of other kids, and ended up finding more support than they could've ever expected.

His mother, Kimberly, took a video of Keaton talking about how other kids poured milk on him, put food on his clothes, and mocked him. He had one simple question: Why? Read more...

Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino tastes like sugar and regret (but I took many photos)

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 16:16

Nothing says Christmas like a cold cup of sugar. 

At least that's what I kept telling myself as I took a sip, and another one of the Christmas Tree Frappuccino. It's Starbucks' latest concoction that has people running out to corporate coffee shops, where they spend $5 and most likely take a bunch of smartphone photos to later post on social media.

'SNL' Weekend Update gets real about Al Franken, Roy Moore, and sexual misconduct

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 15:54

Saturday Night Live might have badly dropped the ball at one point this week, but the latest episode's Weekend Update sketch delivered, at least.

The usual rapid-fire barrage of one-liners from hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost touched on the news of the day — Jerusalem, Donald Trump's health, a looming possible government shutdown — but the sketch really landed when Cecily Strong arrived to talk about sexual misconduct in Washington, D.C.'s halls of power.

Strong's "Cathy Anne," a hard-drinking, drug-abusing political junkie ("and a regular junkie"), delivers a pointed, frequently crass summation of the dichotomy between now-former Senator Al Franken's recent resignation and Roy Moore's near-certain Congressional election win in Alabama on Dec. 12.  Read more...
