The Most Magical Event in Twitter History Just Happened...Drake is a stellar 25 year old Canadian rapper, who enjoys things like wine spritzers and $6,000 socks. T. Boone Pickens is an old white Texan oil billionaire, like something from a cartoon. Twitter just made their worlds crash.
Drake, in a suitably Drake moment of self-reflection, tweeted that "The first million is the hardest." Helpful for the rest of us—apparently the dude has made some money? Are you impressed? T. Boone Pickens, who apparently follows Drake on Twitter, sure isn't, replying "The first billion is a helluva lot harder" with a mic-drop retweet.
At this point Drake's laptop screen probably exploded in his face, but he was able to reply with some (deserved) humility: "@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy." Yes he did.
There has never before been a point in history when a young black guy rich off of Canadian soap operas and luxury super-rap could exchange words with a quasi-eccentric super-rich octogenarian who loves wind power. Now they can—in public. And that, simply, is awesome.
Moreover, Twitter has now peaked and concluded, so pack your things and stop reading. It's been fun! [Thanks, Spiros!]

Some people who use Facebook are dumb. Like a 17-year-old Australian girl who posted a picture of a massive pile of cash to her Facebook account and was then shocked when, just hours later, her house was broken into and the money demanded from her.
Apparently, the 17-year-old was helping her grandmother to count her savings—ever thought of using a bank instead?—when she decided to take a picture of what she herself described as a "large sum of cash". The image was posted at 4pm and by 11:30pm the same day a pair of masked men forced their way into the girl's home.
Fortunately, the image was posted from a different location, so the pair couldn't find the cash in question. Instead, they made off with a small sum of money and some personal belongings from the home. Luckily, nobody was injured.
It's not certain how the pair got hold of the girl's address but, given her posting tendencies, it seems likely that she's published the details online. The whole thing does, at least, serve as a great reminder that posting images of high-value items on Facebook when your address is also publicly available is obviously a really, really dumb idea.

What the Hell Is Under This TV Reporter’s Dress? In the heat of discussing the super hot Facebook IPO, these Bloomberg TV reporters suffer some technical difficulties. What the hell is that thing under reporter Sara Eisen's dress? Skip 22 seconds in and help us solve the mystery.
The segment had already started off disastrously before the wardrobe malfunction exposed a weird black object under Sara Eisen's dress as she sits at her desk. Eisen's counterpart who opens the segment had been completely inaudible, which may be the reason that the camera abruptly cuts to Eisen when she's unprepared. Eisen quickly covers up, and recovers quite gracefully. We would have fainted.
