Unsurprisingly the company is shutting down.
“Then in April 2017, Bloomberg published a piece that likely doomed the company to fail. Reporters found that the company’s packs of fruits and vegetables didn’t require the actual Juicero machine, but were instead squeezeable by hand. Basically, the pricey machine was completely useless, which wasn’t a great look for the company.”
This is on my Christmas wishlist. I am hoping they make a Millennium Falcon though.
In 2017, it is unacceptable for famous women to learn on the job – they must emerge from the womb with a complete working knowledge of intersectional feminism and if they don’t they apparently deserve a sustained campaign of online abuse. It’s hardly surprising that a year later, Swift backtracked on endorsing misogynist lyrics by West – she was likely terrified of making another misstep.
An opinion piece worth reading.
For those who don’t know what “Hot Ones” is it is a YouTube show where the host and guest eat hot wings, starting from mild to super hot. The host asks questions after each wing.

Did you watch Game of Thrones last night? I felt like I’m sure plenty of people did, that the timeline is a bit suspect. But it was a good episode as we push toward the season finale.
“I used to cycle through disbelief, shame, anger. Now I just show compassion and move on,” she added.
I’ve heard this happening myself while in the waiting room for my doctor. The person first didn’t want a nurse practitioner, but a doctor. She was presented with options.

Trilogy of Terror was something I should have never watched as a kid. The little warrior doll scares the hell out of me, even today! (via the loop)
The crooks have not broken the secure encryption around Apple Pay’s fingerprint-activated wireless payment mechanism. Instead, they are setting up new iPhones with stolen personal information and then calling banks to “provision” the victim’s card on the phone to use it to buy goods.
