Ways The World Was Clearly Not Designed With You In Mind

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it. We like to think of ourselves as accommodating and inclusive, these days, but sometimes it still seems like the world around us was designed with somebody else entirely in mind. Clothing that never seems to fit your body shape. Flesh-colored Band-Aids that don’t match your skin. Tools that assume that everyone is right-handed. We could go on and on. Instead, we asked our readers to. They told us … 25 Entry by…

Spanish anti-Uber taxi strike ends after government agrees new regulation

A national six-day taxi driver strike in Spain has ended after the government agreed to pass regulation that will allow the country’s autonomous communities to cap the number of private hire vehicle permits within their cities. The VTC licenses are used by Uber and local ride-hailing rival Cabify to offer professional driver services in the country. So the government’s decision looks likely to limit the size of their businesses in regional markets which choose to uphold the cap. Previous decisions by European courts have essentially closed down Uber’s p2p (non-professional driver)…

From iPhone 9 to iPhone XS: What will Apple call the 2018 iPhones?

Image: Lili Sams/Mashable Let me blow your mind with this rumor: Apple is going to unveil new iPhones in the fall. Yes, that we know. But we also “know” a little more than that. Obviously Apple has so far not said a single word about its 2018 iPhone models, but the rumor mill has been chugging away, and the consensus is Apple will launch three different iPhones: a successor to the iPhone X, a large-screen version of that phone, and a new model that mostly mirrors the iPhone X design,…

Black, White, and Belonging: My Brush With Curlfest

As a little girl, my hair salon was the living room floor. I would sit in front of my mother as she listed my optionsponytails, braids, half-up/half-down. All were relatively easy, but none were painless as I sat tearfully while a standard hairbrush ripped through the knots in my curly hair. Being mixed was a fact of my life, but not something that I considered notable. People asked me all the time what race I was, and Id tell them and think nothing more of it. My hair was thick…

Watch out Trump, China is taking Africa from under your nose

(CNN)Look out Donald Trump, while you’re not watching, China is quietly stealing a continent from you. And India may not be far behind. President Trump has still not visited the continent and has not announced plans to do so. Why should we care? China and India care deeply. After all, Africa is home to Nigeria — poised to become the world’s third most populous country and all the challenges that poses in terms of more jobs for an increasingly youthful population, not to mention food and infrastructure. But it’s also…

This Solar Probe Is Built to Survive a Brush With the Sun

Early Saturday morning, the skies above Cape Canaveral will light up with the launch of the Parker Solar Probe. Its mission? To sweep through the sun’s infernal outer atmosphere, studying the gaseous fireball at the center of the solar system at closer range than any man-made object ever before. Despite being the nearest star to Earth, the sun’s extreme environment has stymied scientists for decades. Some of its quirks are still a mystery, like why the its atmosphere is hundreds of times hotter than its boiling plasma surface. Or how…

The Internet Is Unfairly Dragging This Bride Who Fired Her Bridesmaid Betches

If you know me (which, given the statistics I’ve gathered, puts you at about a one in five chance), you know that I love a good hate read. That’s why, when I clicked on an article from Elle titled, “Bride Fires Bridesmaid in Painfully Awkward Email, and the Reactions are Brutal”, I was psyched. This article, I thought, would combine some of my favorite elements: bad friends, bridezillas, psycho emails, and savage comebacks. I mean, really, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as reading a crazed email from a deranged person and suddenly putting…

The Only Person To Ever Golf on the Moon

Image Credit: NASA On February 6, 1971 Alan Shepard became the first and only person to ever golf on the moon. To pull off the feat, Shepard used a modified six iron with the club head affixed to the handle of a ‘contingency sample return device’. Shepard duffed the first ball, but estimates his second shot travelled more than 200 yards. You can watch the historic moment in the embedded video below. After returning to Earth Shepard donated the club to the USGA Museum in 1974. A replica can also…
