Cartoonist Shows Absolutely No Mercy to People Wittingly Asking to Be Roasted

One a week the sketchyCrab will pick a submission from his website and draw the winner as a "hideous freak". Each lucky winner receives an email with a high resolution version to do whatever they want with (new LinkedIn photo perhaps).

Why you ask??? Because "people apparently hate feeling good about themselves".

Belligerent Customer Won't Cooperate With Tech Support

Sometimes you're having a conversation with a human being that you otherwise thought was perfectly rational, and not prone to fits of blind and entirely irrational rage, and then they pull a fast one on you. This particular customer opted for being a waking nightmare. Fortunately, the tech support employee who fielded the situation kept their cool, and it all worked out in the end.

Man, oh man, it sounds like this uncomfortable situation is the manifestation of the guy's fiancée clearly not being over her ex.

Common Skills People Simply Don't Possess

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the common skills that people don't possess. Some of these might strike a chord, and make you feel better about the struggles that could be plaguing your existence. Struggles like not having the self control/awareness to know when to stop talking, or maybe something more intense like a condition called prosopagnosia, which is trouble recognizing faces like none other. These also might make you feel just a little bit more grateful for all the common skills that you otherwise took for granted.

Ask Stephen Hawking your questions on artificial intelligence.

Stephen Hawking will come to Reddit's r/science next week for his first ever AMA and he has a specific topic in mind.

It may not be entirely an 'Ask Me Anything' as Prof. Hawking wants to field questions dealing with artificial intelligence and the hurdles that we face as a species as technology moves forward in the field.

According to CNET:

Typically, a Reddit AMA is live as people throw questions at the subject, and the person tries to keep up with the barrage by responding as best as possible. But for Hawking's AMA, you'll present the questions ahead of time, and he'll answer them over the following weeks.

Specifically, you can submit your questions starting Monday July 27 at 8am ET through Tuesday, August 4, at reddit.com/r/science, and Hawking will respond over the next few weeks. Hawking, who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, uses a computer to communicate. So the delayed format will allow him the time necessary to answer questions."



Hawking joined Elon Musk and other notable industry figures earlier this year in an open letter to promote studying the possible dangers of AI research and how to avoid them.

In his first AMA, Hawking surely wants to continue that conversation.

But of course, someone will ask him about his favorite sandwich.

Woman Takes Over Manager Position, Fails At Job, Power Trips, Gets Fired

It's funny, sometimes it seems like the most ignorant people are also the most prone to completely unwarranted power trips. This lady for instance, "took over" the manager position and proceeded to let her ego swell to such nauseating levels that she ended up costing her company thousands, while being blind to the very destruction that she caused. Fortunately, she was outed for her antics by an employee who was ready to take the pro revenge when the opportunity presented itself.
