The creators of this video were generous enough to put the drone kill shot segment of the clip at the beginning; but I'd recommend you stick around for the rest of the video to catch an intimate glimpse of all that goes into putting on a Russian Middle Ages festival. Pretty kickass.

Good Morning America fails at social media with this Lion King tweet

Well, we'll never know it if it was going to be a good morning or not because we woke up to Good Morning America greeting us in the worst way possible.

Trying to share some Garfield-esque camaraderie about Mondays, GMA missed the fact that in the gif, little Simba is nuzzling up against his dead father, not trying to go back to sleep or whatever.

Devastatingly, before the tweet was removed, 98 people retweeted it, sadly saying that they felt similar this morning. We wish you the best.

This was just another in a long line of social media gaffes, representative of the times. My current favorite was the Spaghetti O's Pearl Harbor commemorative tweet from a few years ago:



Nothing says 'Remember the fallen in an invasive attack on American soil" like Spaghetti O's.

What a time to be alive...via The Seattle Times:

A few days after Microsoft released Windows 10 to the public last year, Teri Goldstein’s computer started trying to download and install the new operating system.

The update, which she says she didn’t authorize, failed. Instead, the computer she uses to run her Sausalito, Calif., travel-agency business slowed to a crawl. It would crash, she says, and be unusable for days at a time.

“I had never heard of Windows 10,” Goldstein said. “Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update.”

When outreach to Microsoft’s customer support didn’t fix the issue, Goldstein took the software giant to court, seeking compensation for lost wages and the cost of a new computer.

Thanks to the universal version of the Dosbox app, YouTube user vcfan was able to get Windows 95 running on an Xbox One. Some out there are already stepping forward to contest the usefulness of all this, but hey, if you can run X-Wing, Dark Forces, and Duke Nukem 3D, then it's definitely not worthless!
