(1) Emma Watson announced, or rather denounced, on Twitter that despite rumors she is not considering the bondage-laden lead role in the soon to be made 50 shades of Grey movie.  Here’s her tweet:

 


Anastasia, I mean Hermione, I mean Emma, just know that whether you accept this sexy role or not, in the minds of your fans both young and old (but mostly old), you’ve already been cast in the part in their minds…over and over and over again!

 

(2) Google is sending camera crews into extreme conditions to reach the highest points on Earth in order to capture 360 degree images for the ‘street views’ section of Google Maps.

Google, if you want a view from the highest place on Earth, just find Lil Wayne and begin the treacherous trek to the top of Sizzurp Mountain! 

 

(3) A company is attempting to raise money through Kickstarter to finance the manufacturing of a high-tech soccer ball.  The special ball can harness energy simply by being played with.  After 30 minutes the ball is fully charged and has energy to power a small lamp for up to three hours.   

If they can apply this same technology to the right hand of most of the guys who read Maxim they could power a city, nay… an entire state.  

 

(4) An in-depth report conducted by the crack team at Buzzfeed found that people don’t like to read about Taylor Swift. Not buying into their own hype, they wrote about her anyway.  

Taylor Swift is far from the worst thing to read about; case-in-point: Brian Boitano's Edge: Inside The Real World of Figure Skating!

 

(5) There’s nothing greater than watching a bridge implode, except of course watching a bridge implode in super slow motion.

The only other time I’ve seen something that big implode before my eyes is what’s left of Louie Anderson’s career after he donned a spandex onesie and rolled off a diving board in this gif taken from the show Splash.

 

**Even though Twitter hasn't verified me yet, I've verified it's their 7th Birthday. In social media years that's like turning 100, so happy birthday to Twitter… ya old bag!
