5 Brutal Facebook Comebacks (& 5 More We'd Like to Post) We talk a lot about which Facebook updates are the most annoying, but let's be honest: it's downright petty to criticize what other people share. Who cares what people post on their own personal accounts, right? If we don't like what someone has to say, we have all sorts of useful options -- like unfriending, hiding their updates, or, you know, not using Facebook altogether. That SAID (oh, you know I wasn't ending things there, right?), there are times when the most tempting response is a bitchy one. More from The Stir: 10 Surefire Ways to Be That Obnoxious Facebook Friend The breastfeeding-brag comeback of the year: Oh, Emily: Well, THIS was awkward: Worst. Only 87 likes??? And speaking of comebacks, here are a few more I'd secretly love to see pop up next to the most irritating statuses: The rhetorical question status update.

Soylent factura más de 2 millones de dólares en pedidos | VICE España Foto Derek Mead/VICE Hace menos de un año, Rob Rhinehart explicó en una entrada de su blog cómo había dejado de tomar comida para alimentarse únicamente a base de un cóctel grisáceo elaborado con macronutrientes. Hoy, nos cuenta que las ventas de Soylent han superado los 2 millones de dólares. El próximo mes, decenas de miles de consumidores de postalimentos de todo el mundo recibirán el producto en sus hogares. “Hemos superado los 2.000.000 de ingresos, con más de 20.000 clientes, y la cifra crece cada día”, asegura Rhinehart. Todo ello pese a que, técnicamente, Soylent todavía no se ha comercializado y por el momento solo está disponible para evaluadores de versión beta. En junio, la empresa de Rhinehart lanzó una campaña de financiación colectiva con la expectativa de recaudar 100.000 dólares para impulsar la venta del producto. Después de un par de retrasos, Soylent ya está listo para su envío a las masas.

Trust Me! I Have Brown Eyes And The Face To Go With Them redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports – Your Universe Online Ever wonder what makes you feel that instinctive sense of trust — or mistrust — when you meet someone new? In a new study published this week in the online journal PLoS ONE, researchers at Charles University in the Czech Republic explored this question by asking 238 participants to look at the faces of 80 students and rate their trustworthiness, attractiveness and dominance. As expected, the team found that all three of these characteristics aligned pretty well with each other. Faces that they perceived as trustworthy also seemed more attractive and dominant, and vice versa. But the researchers also stumbled upon a somewhat unexpected correlation — people tended to view brown eyes as more trustworthy than blue eyes regardless of whether the person doing the rating was a man or woman with blue eyes or brown eyes. This clear bias towards brown eyes initially left the researchers scratching their heads.
