Pollsters Admit They Underestimated Voters’ Adrenal Glands. WASHINGTON—In response to widespread criticism that they had failed to predict Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, analysts from polling organizations around the nation admitted Thursday they had underestimated the influence of voters’ adrenal glands on the presidential race.

Pollsters Admit They Underestimated Voters’ Adrenal Glands

“We always try to account for as many factors affecting voting behavior as possible, but looking back on our final pre-election projections, we must own up to the fact that our models clearly undervalued the impact Americans’ adrenal glands would have on the final outcome,” said Zogby Analytics researcher David Patti, adding that although he and his colleagues had made sure to factor voters’ endocrine systems into their forecasting algorithms, they had not anticipated just how active the stress hormone–producing organs would be among likely voters.

Suggérez à Sarkozy un nouveau nom pour l'UMP

Kanye West lectured at Oxford, and it was everything you might expect. In its approximately 919 years of existence, Oxford University, the oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of the crown jewels of the British educational system, has hosted everyone from the greatest geniuses in human history to an actor who made his career playing a power-mad boy-king within its walls.

Kanye West lectured at Oxford, and it was everything you might expect

Its newest guest speaker was a little of both, as Kanye West took to the lectern to deliver a lesson in Yeezeology 101 yesterday. The lecture began with Kanye instructing the crowd to keep absolutely silent, lest they disturb what someone in the hip-hop community might refer to as his “flow.” (It’s a technical term.)

“I can literally hear a whisper, and it’ll throw off my stream of consciousness, and when I get my stream of consciousness going that’s when I give the best, illest quotes,” he said. We’ve been sold a concept of joy through advertising, through car advertising, through fashion branding. The full, highly readable text of Kanye’s lecture can be read here.

Top 12 des meilleures couvertures d’Infos du Monde

Des "freaks" en tout genre, des extraterrestres et des crimes débiles ont chaque semaine apporté un petit rayon de soleil à l'actualité peu folichonne de cette année 1994 (Révélations concernant le passé de Mitterrand sous Vichy, le CIP, le décès de Jean Carmet...). Retour sur ces couvertures qui ont fait jaser et qui ont contribué, à leur manière, au déclin de la presse écrite. Bravo les gars.

For nerds of a certain age, there’s something distinctly soothing about the sound of a floppy drive spinning into motion.

Watch floppy drives play the themes from Pulp Fiction and Game Of Thrones · Great Job, Internet!

In the days before CDs, the low bass rumbles and high-pitched whirrs were as comforting as the sound of a dialing modem—they were the sounds of things getting done, of programs preparing to run. Despite the obsolescence of the hardware, some YouTubers just can’t seem to let their floppies go. Instead, they convert the old drives into makeshift musical instruments, wiring multiple devices together and programming them to spin at frequencies that produce musical notes. From there, they can input MIDI files into the controller and produce some amazingly faithful interpretations of popular songs. The trend was brought to our attention by this video, recently posted by YouTube user Arganalth, of “Misirlou,” best known as the surf rock opening theme from Pulp Fiction.

“Why do it?” You can find more videos by searching for “floppy drive music” on YouTube.
