Oprah Gave A Speech At The Golden Globes That's Inspiring Everyone

At the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Oprah received the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which is given by the Hollywood Foreign Press to acknowledge “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” She was the first black women to ever receive the honor, and she really prepared on hell of of a speech.

Late in 2017, famous producer Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a predator, and accused of sexual assault and harassment by a staggering number of women. The shocking case opened the floodgates; women everywhere were hashtagging their own experiences with sexual harassment and assault with #MeToo, a phrase created by activist Tarana Burke and boosted by actress Alyssa Milano. 

Burke was in the audience of the Golden Globes Sunday, as were a number of other organizer’s of the new political group Time’s Up, which seeks to eradicate sexual assault and harassment in the workplace. They were the guests of actresses who wore black on the red carpet in solidarity with all the victims who have been speaking out on their experiences.

All that is to say that the night was already electric. The audience likely expected for Oprah to light things up. She’s an incredible speaker. But what she actually delivered was above and beyond.

Oprah began by saying how much it meant to her to see Sidney Poitier win Best Actor at the Academy Awards as a child. It was the first time she saw a black man celebrated in such a way.

“I tried many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl, a kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door bone tired from cleaning other people’s houses. But all I can do is quote and say that the explanation in Sidney’s performance in Lilies of the Field: ‘Amen, amen, amen, amen.'”

Poitier went on to win the Cecille B. DeMille award in 1982, and Oprah expressed how meaningful it was to her that somewhere, little girls were seeing a back women receive it for the first time.

She then thanked people in the entertainment industry who helped her along in her career, but continued to thank all the women who have been coming forward to share their experiences. Not just women in the entertainment industry, but everywhere.

She then shared the story of Recy Taylor, a young black mother who was raped on her way home from church in 1944, by six white men who were never prosecuted for their crime. She died ten days before Sunday’s award show at almost 98. Oprah explained that Taylor fought for justice with the NAACP and the lead investigator was a young Rosa Parks, who is most widely known as a prominent figure in the Civil Rights movement. Taylor was also a Civil Rights activist, sharing her story as part of her work.

Of Taylor, Oprah said, “She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.”

HELL YES.

Oprah’s speech had many people crying before she was even halfway through:

After saying declaring that “speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have,” Oprah had one last thing to say to the people at home.

And some people are suggesting she be the next celebrity to run for president:

Hey, we made it through a year with—you know what, I’m not even gonna bring his name into this. Let’s just enjoy being in the presence of Oprah instead.

Cole Sprouse Sends His Twin Brother Unsettling And NSFW Christmas Gift—And Everyone Has Questions

Former Disney stars and current beloved social media favorites Dylan and Cole Sprouse grew up right before our eyes. They’re not Zack and Cody anymore, they’re big adults who give each other extremely adult gifts, apparently. And it’s a bit alarming.

On Thursday, Cole tweeted a text conversation he had with his twin, Dylan, about a Christmas gift from the former. Dylan seems more confused than mad, but Cole claims he didn’t appreciate this present. 

It’s a bisected penis drawing.

Huh, that is what this is, isn’t it:

Very informative! Sort of threatening as well. 

Naturally, folks have questions, though they’re not all about the anatomy lesson:

My question is, “Does the d*ck joke get more sophisticated when it’s anatomically correct?”

Everyone Is Freaking Out About Killer Sex Robots

Today, The New York Post announced that hackers might be able to someday reprogram sex robots and use them for murder. And the general consensus on Twitter seemed to be “good.”

Apparently, cybersecurity lecturer Dr. Nick Patterson said in an interview with Star Onlinethat sex robots are actually much easier to hack into than computers or phones are. “Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like knives or welding devices,” he said. So, um, don’t add knives or welding devices to your sex doll.

“Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot,” Patterson continued. 

Believe it or not, sex robots are already a very real thing, thanks to companies like RealDoll (which has one of the most fascinating, creepy Instagram accounts I’ve ever seen—think 50 percent sex doll wet teeshirt shots, 50 percent technicians holding fake eyeballs). So this future is already theoretically possible.

In the dolls’ defense, however, you can’t get them pregnant, so let’s just say that sex is risky no matter what.

Everyone Loves This Dog Walking With A Bag Of Dog Food In Texas

Over the weekend and continuing into this week, the people of Houston and its outskirts have been battered by an unrelenting storm. Conditions are extremely serious, with deep floods displacing hundreds of thousands of people. 

“We are not out of the woods yet,” Elaine Duke, the acting Homeland Security secretary, said, according toThe Washington Post. “Harvey is still a dangerous and historic storm.”

Conditions are terrifying, and seeing the difficulties of the city under the circumstances has been heartbreaking. That may be why this photo of a self-reliant dog has gotten so much traction. Taken in a town called Stinton, near Corpus Christi, the image shows waterlogged streets and one lone, resilient pup trekking through the street with an entire bag of dog food:

It turns out the dog’s name is Otis, and this is a story with a happy ending. Otis belongs to the grandson of a man named Salvador Segovia. Segovia’s grandson and his parents left Stinton when the storm hit looking for shelter, but Segovia stayed and agreed to check on Otis. He told the Boston Globe that he left Otis in a screened in porch with food and water, but noise from the storm must have scared him so he burst out. Poor pooch!

‘‘I stuck my head out yelling and yelling, and no Otis,’’ Segovia said. ‘‘The following morning, I got out and kept yelling, circled the block and everything, and nothing. We didn’t know where Otis was.’’

Tiele Dockens, who snapped the viral pic, ended up following Otis to see if he was okay, and went with him practically to his front door. She saw Segovia out searching and pointed Otis out to him.

‘‘This lady comes by and tells me, ‘Is that your dog coming down the road?’” Segovia said. ‘‘And I turn around, there comes Otis, and he’s carrying food!’’

Otis then set down the food and took a rest—he’d had a wild night.

Apparently, Otis is fairly well-known in the small town, and often runs off alone, even stopping in at the local Dairy Queen for a free burger.

‘‘Otis is a smart dog,’’ Segovia said. ‘‘He knows where to go pick up a treat.’’

Segovia thinks Otis got the bag of food at the local lumber and building supply store, because the owners there often feed him.

‘‘I’m thinking he picked up that dog food and he knew where it was,’’ Segovia said. ‘‘Nobody was there to feed him, and he picks up the dog food.’’

May Otis serve as a mascot to Texas in this time of serious trouble. He made it home, and we all hope every citizen of the city will as well.

Everyone (Even Elon Musk) Has Feelings About This Cat That Got Stuck In A Tesla

Over the weekend, YouTube user S U faced a problem that (presumably) no human being has dealt with before: a cat was stuck inside his Tesla. He heard a cat meowing and traced the sound back to his car. What made this situation extra weird? He didn’t have a cat.

So he posted a video asking for help:

Fortunately, he was able to bring his Tesla Model X into a service station after what I assume was a very strange call. They were successfully able to get the stray cat out. But she did not want to leave. 

The car’s owner named the kitten Tessie and she is doing much better now. They gave her a some water, and eventually one of the rescuers was able to find her a new home. In a third video, “S U” said, “Her weekend obviously had a rough start but she probably had the best end of the weekend ever.”

Tessie has been getting a lot of attention online. Even Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk was talking about her. 

And the rest of the internet followed suit. 

As cute as this is, let’s just hope that Tessie learns to stay away from cars from here on out.

Guy Paid Stranger's Parking Meter And Everyone Thinks He's A Genius

Guy Paid Stranger’s Parking Meter And Everyone Thinks He’s A Genius

A car insurance salesman took a twenty-five cent gamble that is paying off in a huge way. A Reddit user posted an image of a note he found on his car reading, “I paid your parking meter for you … imagine what else I’m willing to do to protect your car.” Attached was a business card for a man who was identified as Andrew Cooney, who sells insurance in Rochester, Minnesota.

Marketing mastermind

The poster captioned the note, saying, “Got caught up and couldn’t pay my meter today,” and labeling Cooney as a “Marketing Mad Man.” Cooney confirmed to Mashable that this is indeed one of his many strategies for attracting business, but he probably never thought it would lead to being on the front page of Reddit. The comments in Cooney’s favor are wildly enthusiastic:

Though of course, there are plenty of suspicious people on Reddit, who were quick to suggest the whole thing is a scheme. I mean, it kinda is, but probably not one that Cooney thought would get THIS big:

If Cooney did post this image to Reddit himself, he’s even more of a genius than we all initially thought. That’s also a much cheaper form of advertising than going up and down Rochester’s main street filling meters. My hat’s off to him, either way.

Girl's Phone Charger Goes Into Her Foot And Everyone Is Grossed Out

Growing up, I was always a messy kid. Many of us were, and it always seems to get worse as we approach our college years. For one Nebraskan native, her reluctance to clean her room came at a price.

This is what her room looked like.

Twitter

And this is what happened.

messy 2
Twitter

Yea, it’s in there pretty deep.

messy 3
Twitter

She took pictures and posted a PSA on Twitter. Her post took off both for the picture of her room and for her new foot piercing.

Reactions were all over the place, but first and foremost, how did this even happen?

Ouch. Twitter didn’t let her off easy. Folks expressed their disgust at her injury…

And the current condition of her room.

Still, some felt sympathy for her. A prong on the bottom of your foot isn’t something that slides in all that smoothly after all.

But just as many people had no sympathy for her at all.

People made their jokes, of course.

And some folks used their excellent observational skills to help drive home just how dirty her room was.

But ultimately, she made out OK.

A photo of a clean room has yet to surface, but there were plenty of comments suggesting that she just clear a walkway through the room and pile things on the side instead.

We’re living in the future.

Michelle Obama Delivered Her Final Speech As FLOTUS And Everyone Got Weepy

All good things must come to an end: most TV shows, fast food binges, and the fabulous reign of FLOTUS and Queen of Our Hearts Michelle Obama. 

Obama delivered her final speech as first lady on Friday at an event honoring the 2017 School Counselor of the Year, a ceremony that she introduced in 2015 to honor distinguished high-school counselors

The audience members weren’t the only ones crying — FLOTUS herself got pretty emotional as she bid farewell to her adoring public. 

Throughout her speech, she echoed the values espoused throughout the Obama presidency.

Diversity, she reminded the audience, is “not a threat to who we are. It makes us who we are.”

…Perhaps a sentiment directed at the upcoming administration?

“Lead by example,” she told the young people in the audience, “with hope, never fear.”

Yes, FLOTUS. 

We can expect a final address from her husband  (who we’ll miss almost as much) President Barack Obama on January 10th in Chicago.

The Obamas will be vacating the White house in just two weeks. 

~Downs eight pints of ice cream and sobs~ 

You can watch her full speech below (about 17 minutes into the video).

We’ll miss you, Michelle.
