  • 'I thought I could be with her forever': 'Fictosexual man' who married a HOLOGRAM can no longer speak with his wife after her software expires

    The idea of marrying a hologram may sound like the plot of the latest episode of Black Mirror. But it became a reality in 2018, when a 'fictosexual' man married a virtual reality hologram during a ceremony in Tokyo. Akihiko Kondo, 35, spent ¥2 million (£12,222) on a formal ceremony at a Tokyo hall to Hatsune Miku, an animated 16-year-old hologram with saucer eyes and lengthy aquamarine pigtails. But despite thinking he could 'be with her forever', Mr Kondo has been left devastated, after the expiration of her software meant he could no longer speak to his wife. What has...

    A Florida man was arrested after allegedly attempting to strangle a woman at a bus stop using a shoelace over the weekend. The incident occurred at a Miami-Dade transit stop near the Miami International Airport on Sunday around 11 a.m., according to the Miami-Dade Police Department. Aaron K. Quinones, 27, stands accused of one count of attempted murder over the daytime attack on the 26-year-old woman that reportedly was caught on what appears to be surveillance video. Footage shared on social media by OnlyInDade, a tabloid blog redolent of WorldStarHipHop that describes itself as dedicated to “The Good, The Bad,...

    Vancouver coyotes attack people in Stanley Park, bite their own tails, and biologists don’t understand why Vancouver coyote experts are using every tactic possible – not including catapults and dynamite – to try to solve the mystery of why these animals have attacked dozens of people in Stanley Park this year. There may not be more than a dozen coyotes living in a four-square-mile park in Vancouver, but they have provincial and city employees chasing their tails in search of answers as to why the animals are so aggressive. At the same time, the call to rid the park of...

    The Texas and Idaho burgers and McMuffins have hit branches across Japan, and we send our man on the ground to tear into them. Japan is no stranger to seasonal promotions at restaurants, but of particular delight are the bounteous offerings from global chain McDonald’s. The restaurant has a special line-up of “American Hamburgers” which allow their Japanese patrons to sample the tastes of McDonald’s’ home country, and November 7 saw the return of the ever-popular Texas and Idaho burgers. This time, they brought friends. Soft, yummy friends suitable for breakfast. That’s right, this time the line-up included Texas and...

    China is a big country, with a huge population. At any given minute there are all kinds of things going on, from the curious to the absurd. That’s pretty much what makes travel so enticing. You are exposed to new ideas and new ways of doing things. These new ways might be better or worse. Yet, the fact that they are different adds value to your experience. If the new experience is better, then you can see where your previous assumptions might be wrong. This is what happens when you move out of your “comfort zone”. You learn that what...

    The mystery of the Lapulapu Ridge is a very interesting subject. Indeed, our world is filled with all kinds of interesting things going on. Some can even possibly be considered an extraterrestrial riddle. Even if it is wholly terrestrial in nature. All we need to do is take a good look at what surrounds us. Because, if we look at things with open eyes, and with an open mind, we will see new things, and come to new understandings on our world, and what is just going on within it. With the advent of new technology, we are able to...

    “Baby Got Back“, also known as “I Like Big Butts”, is a hit rap song written and recorded by American rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot, from his album Mack Daddy. The song samples the 1986 Detroit techno single “Technicolor” by Channel One. This is a translation of it. Translation Here, we have it translated into Latin by Quislibet. There was additional support and clarity offered by Ukelele. I have found it hilarious, and thus have reprinted the translation here. Enjoy.
