- •The Faroe IslandsThis archipelago — about halfway between Iceland and Norway — is home to shaggy sheep as well as a burgeoning music scene, complete with a score of summer festivals with both Faroese and foreign artists.
- •SwazilandSwaziland is home to rolling flatlands, lush valleys and a flat-topped mountain range that forms the country’s eastern border with Mozambique, but it’s still underrated when it comes to American travel.
- •Guernsey and JerseyGuernsey and Jersey are the two principal districts that make up the Channel Islands off the French coast of Normandy. They feature small streets lined with trees that grow together high above the ground, flower vendors, kind people and beautiful architecture.
We're giving you the run-down on how to contextualize (and sexualize) what some might believe are the most pointless emoji available.
- •PouchTake a closer look at this boring bag. This emoji can easily represent the classic brown lunch bag. The pouch emoji symbolizes the most holy time of the day, lunchtime. Now all you need to do is send this little guy to your co-workers and they'll know to meet in the kitchen to gorge on free office snacks.
- •Passport ControlThe customs agent is checking out your passport, just like I am checking out...you. Send this emoji to a hottie. Let them know you're perusing their bod just like passport control peruses pages of stamps from foreign lands.
- •Dragon FaceAm I the only person with poor eyesight that thought this dragon head was sitting on a dinner plate? Back then, I always saw it as a sign of revenge. Now that I know it's freestanding, I think its main use is to ask your more tired friends, "why you be dragon?" As in, "draggin'." Once this phrase and emoji hit the mainstream, expect moms to text it to their teenagers the world over.
We love Snapchat, but there are some features we'd love to see it add. What other features would you like to see added to Snapchat?
- 1.A filter that looks like actual makeup instead of a maskSnapchat is king when it comes to offering funky-looking, quirky and sometimes creepy filters, but is it too much to ask for one that gives me a glamorous face full of makeup and hides the fact that I just woke up or haven't moved from the couch all day?
- 2.The ability to go back and see a previous snap in a storyUnfortunately, there's no way to go back and see a Snap in a story, without exiting and starting all over. On our Snapchat dream list, we'd a back button for the times you want to look again at a specific snap again.
- 3.Different fontsSan serif is the only font available. I repeat, san serif is the only font available! You can change the color, but it'd be great to spice it up with a little apple chancery once in awhile.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a fast-paced live action cartoon — the kind of series that squeezes in so many jokes per minute that it's nearly impossible to catch them all on the first go-round. Here are 15 to start — including a subtle dig at Taylor Swift. How many more can you add to our list?
- •The robot incidentIn episode 2, Jacqueline indicates she doesn't remember meeting Titus before. Titus’s response: “We buried a robot together!” In fact, they did did – in season 1, episode 7. (The robot was a prototype Jacqueline's now ex-husband brought to New York from Japan.)
- •Yuko's second lifeLater in Episode 2, Yuko the robot appears as a nanny at Buckley’s school.
- •The dog daysWe learn in Episode 3 that Titus was a pug in one of his past lives. We shouldn't be surprised -- back in episode 6 of Season 1, Lillian was guilted into helping Titus after catching a glimpse of a pug who reminded her of the would-be star. Which prompted Titus to huff, “That dog does not look like me, Lillian!" Hey, it's not his fault that one time, "I had to wear a cone because I kept biting my stitches!”
Who needs Netflix when you have a good graphic novel?(Full story: http://on.mash.to/1Su7Xp2)
- 1.The Sandman Series by Neil GaimanNeil Gaiman's award winning series has more than 75 issues and has sparked several spin-offs — and in 2015, a prequel, Sandman Overture. The history of the Lord of Dreams and his Endless brethren is a staple for any fantasy fan.
- 2.Fables by Bill WillinghamFables wasn't just an entertaining series filled with rich storytelling — suggesting, long before the TV show Once Upon a Time, that all characters from myths and fairy tales are real and hiding out in our world. It was also so long-running that it become a sort of inside joke amongst graphic novel nerds. The comic began in 2002 and ended with issue 150 in 2015, with a couple of spin-offs to boot.
- 3.Preacher by Garth EnnisThe long-running comic tells the tale of a Texas-town priest who has been possessed by supernatural forces. A war between heaven and hell is waged over 66 issues of dramatic action.
Here are the 8 winners of the The Oscars of the plane cabin, the Crystal Cabin Awards.
- 1.Cleaner toiletsBoeing won the top award in the cabin Health category for a fancy self-cleaning toilet.
- 2.Adjustable seatsRebel Aero won an award for its new Economy seat which is a departure from the norm: two seats in one. The Rebel Aero seat lets you sit as you normally would, comfortably (well, plane comfortably), or sit/standing with the seat bottom folded up.
- 3.More privacyThis year's winner from TU Delft university in Holland proposed a simple yet brilliant folding "hammock" headrest. Top selling feature: It's a great cue for Chatty Chuck next to you that you don't want to hear his Jon Snow dead or alive theory for the duration. It's also a great place to rest your head when you sleep.
Power players from around the world are popping up in the Panama Papers, the leaked cache of 11 million documents that show the world's elite hide billions in tax shelters. See who's implicated — and from where — below.
- •ArgentinaArgentina President Mauricio Marci and his brother were directors for a Bahamas company managed by Mossack Fonseca, the Panama-based law firm from which the documents came, while Marci served as mayor of Buenos Aires.
- •IcelandIceland Prime Minister Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson was found to be using offshore tax havens. When he was asked about this during an interview, he simply walked out.
- •MexicoMexican magnate Juan Armando Hinojosa Cantu, whose company once purchased a mansion for Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto's wife, hid at least $100 million in offshore companies managed by Mossack Fonseca. Also, Guadalajara Cartel cofounder Rafael Caro Quintero operated a company through Mossack Fonseca.
Here are three times tech companies totally didn't lie to us on April 1.
- •AppleFounded on April 1, 1976 by Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, Apple Computer most certainly wasn’t a joke.
- •GmailOn April 1, 2004, Google announced the beta version of Gmail, its new web-based email service that offered users 1GB of storage and super-fast search. Oh yeah, and it was free.
- •Amazon Dash ButtonAlthough it was technically launched on March 31, 2015, the roll-out of Amazon Dash buttons had us all thinking that the product had to be an early April Fools' Day joke. But it’s not a joke. As Amazon told us at the time, "indeed it is real."
Spoiler alert: If you haven't seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this will spoil it. If you have, and you thought it held together OK, this will definitely spoil it.
- •There's no bat wind in the wellAt the very beginning of the movie, little Bruce Wayne is lifted from the bat cave by swarming winged mammals — yet his hair and clothes are undisturbed by any kind of wind. Spare us the "it's a dream sequence" defense; aerodynamics still exist in our neural activity. There would be wind.
- •Jimmy Olsen is shooting on 35mm filmDuring the terrorist showdown in Nairomi, photographer Jimmy Olsen (yep, that was him, as a CIA operative instead of the usual earnest shutterbug; no, you would not know this unless you paid attention to the film's closing credits) sees a film canister pulled from his FILM CAMERA right before he's whacked, execution-style. No one shoots photos on 35mm anymore, especially journalists. It's just not done. At all. Ever. But if they did ...
- •No idiot would hide a tracking beacon in a film canisterAs it turns out, the beacon that gave Jimmy away was stashed inside said 35mm film roll. Look: If some rough customer took issue with his taking pictures — which seems really likely on an assignment like this — that person's first move would be to pull out Jimmy's film roll. Not even Central Intelligence is that stupid.
