A Few Dank Stoner Memes For Anyone Who Wants To Legalize It

It’s only a matter of time before marijuana is legalized all over the United States (we’ve got 40 states to go) and the practice of smoking or consuming jazz cabbage is rapidly becoming normalized. This is especially apparent on the internet – the proof is in these memes that are directed at the THC fiends – for everything else, there’s CBD.

5 Reasons Social Media Influencers Are Getting Even Weirder

And Miquela isn’t the only CG influencer at this weird robot party. Blawko and Bermuda, two personalities created by the same marketing firm, Brud, both have 137,000 followers. Shudu, the creation of a photographer, has 177,000.

It’s easy to see why CG influencers would be appealing to companies. They’ll never get old or fat. They’ll never unexpectedly break a contract to go to rehab, or have a family emergency. They’ll never go rogue and post something offensive. They’re known for direct-messaging their followers and being extremely interactive with their fanbases, because they have unlimited time to devote to them. I would probably be pretty good at my job too if I didn’t have to sleep, eat, or care about anything else. Eh, who am I kidding, no I wouldn’t.

You would think the problem with CG influencers would be that consumers wouldn’t be interested in a cartoon telling them what clothes to buy. Miquela can’t taste the coffee she advertises, or smell the candles she’s selling, but that doesn’t seem to matter. Social media is about social clout, and apparently it doesn’t matter to people anymore if you believe in what you’re selling, as long as they know that a million other people are watching you sell it. Welcome to the future, everybody!

Efficiency Win! The Dalai Lama Has Announced That His Dentist’s 30-Year-Old Son Is The Reincarnation of Him And Should Just Take Over As Dalai Lama After He Dies

One of the world’s greatest spiritual leaders just made an incredible proclamation that is bound to save tons of time and make Buddhists all over the world stand up and cheer: The Dalai Lama has announced that his dentist’s 30-year-old son is the reincarnation of him and should just take over as Dalai Lama after he dies!

This is incredibly awesome! Usually, finding the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama requires Buddhist clerics to search throughout Tibet for up to four years in order to identify a child who can pass a series of tests to verify his identity as the reborn avatar of the spiritual leader, but now that the Dalai Lama has confirmed that he has already been reborn as the adult son of his dentist, the succession process won’t take any time at all!

The Dalai Lama said that he discovered the reborn version of himself during a visit to his dentist, Klaus Helmutt, DDS, for a routine teeth cleaning. During the visit, the dentist’s 30-year-old son Karl entered his father’s office and asked him if he could have $300 to buy a Nintendo Switch, at which point the Dalai Lama instantly identified him as the reincarnation of himself, and therefore his immediate successor after he dies.

“In the past, finding the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama has been an incredibly prolonged process, but I’m pleased to announce that I’ve already been reborn as my dentist’s boy, Karl Helmutt,” said the Dalai Lama in a statement. “My dentist’s boy is me, and that’s great. My soul is in his body and so when I die, that’s fine, because he’s already me and he should just become the Dalai Lama right away.”

The Dalai Lama went on to say that he realized that the 30-year-old Helmutt was the reincarnation of himself because he “smelled like me” and “knew where I kept my rake (in the garage),” both sure signs in his mind that the two of them were the same person, with one soul passed between two bodies.

This is completely amazing! Just when you thought the Dalai Lama couldn’t get any wiser, he goes out of his way to find his new middle-aged avatar way in advance. Kudos to him for making the process of appointing a new Dalai Lama as efficient and smooth as possible!

6 Chemical Reactions That Look Like Scenes From Horror Films

The reaction does produce heat and oxygen, so keeping it away from an open flame is probably a good idea … and also from your face. That’s a good rule of thumb for all science, though. Never in the face.

The Zombie Fish

There’s a good chance even Aquaman hates zombie fish, so these videos are disturbing to just about everyone, save maybe one or two people who have been to the far edge of the internet and lived to tell the tale. Nothing here looks like the sort of thing you want in your kitchen or later in your mouth, probably. I won’t judge you if you salivate a little, though. You do you.

So why, dear god, just why? Well, 10% of the time, it’s because your home was built on sacred land and you’re about 20 minutes away from having your soul sucked out of your butthole by a mummy dressed like a cowboy. The other 90% of the time, it’s an unsettling chemical reaction that happens to all kinds of seafood, and maybe even you, if you get hollowed out in a kitchen one day! Don’t quote me on that part, though. I stopped taking biology in high school.

Relationship Goals: John Legend And Chrissy Teigen Have Both Had Their Consciousness Uploaded Into The Same Smart Fridge

If you weren’t already cursing yourself for not having a perfect relationship like Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, you’re going to start after reading this. The greatest couple in the history of couples just somehow found a way to make their perfect relationship even more perfect by having their consciousnesses uploaded into the same smart fridge.

Uh, can you say #relationshipgoals?

Yep, John and Chrissy have got us standing and applauding after having their souls extracted from their mortal shells and intertwined forever on the hard drive of a single Samsung Family Hub Touchscreen fridge. If only everyone could be in a relationship this amazing!

“I love my wife very much, and having our brains digitized so we could exist side by side within the same high-tech refrigerator was the way we could be closest,” said John Legend’s mind via text displayed using the fridge’s digital bulletin board. “I’ve always dreamed of meeting a woman whose consciousness could combine with mine inside the circuitry of a high-end appliance, and I’ve known ever since I met her that Chrissy is definitely that woman.”

Chrissy Teigen charmingly responded by flipping the kitchen lights on and off a few times using the fridge’s SmartThings app.

This is just more proof that there will never be another couple as absolutely flawless as John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. We hope the celebrity couple is happy in their new life together as digitized brains housed within the hard drive of a smart fridge. We can’t wait to see what kinds of adorable mischief they get up to together now that their minds are both in control of the fridge’s display console and temperature settings!
