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.

People Are Freaking Out Over This Fish That's Flailing After Being Cut In Half

You’ve probably seen a few of those terrifying videos of fish seemingly coming back from the dead and flopping around on a dinner plate. Twitter was horrified when a user from Japan uploaded a video of a tuna fish that had already been cut in half flopping around for a solid two minutes. 

The clip was posted to Twitter by Yutaka Suzuki along with the caption: “The vitality of the fish is amazing.” 

We do have some good news, though. The fish is long dead, and not feeling any pain at all. According to Christie Wilcox of Scientific American, the muscles of a fish that was just killed are so fresh that its neurons are still completely in tact. Add some sodium ions from salt to the exposed muscles and you’ll trigger the neurons, which will signal to the muscles to contract. And the very dead fish will continue to flip around until its use the last of its energy stores. 

It works with squid, as well. 

But that didn’t stop Twitter from being any less terrified.

This Woman Named Barbara Looks Exactly Like Barb From 'Stranger Things' And People Are Freaking Out

Perhaps one of the greatest injustices of Netflix original shows was the apparent demise of Barb in Stranger Things. No apologies for the spoiler alert — it’s your fault for not watching yet). 

The one character who seems to have a good head on her shoulders (and who doesn’t get caught up in personal drama) perishes! Naturally, the good people who sit on couches and binge watch new Netflix shows were pretty outraged by this development. 

But one Redditor has some evidence that is making Stranger Things fans feel a little bit better… Perhaps Barb lives and is thriving today!

Redditor jujuness uploaded the following photo of a coworker and it is blowing everyone’s minds.

And it gets crazier. The photo is captioned:

My coworker brought in her senior picture from the 80’s. Also her name is Barbra and goes by Barb.

HER NAME IS BARB. GUYS, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???

We knew that season 1 couldn’t be the end of Barb!

The photo has blown up overnight; the Barb doppelganger received over 400,000 views. 

Reddit was relieved to hear the news, especially after the months of uncertainty about Barb’s fate. 

I think we finally found Barb.

Oh thank god she’s safe. Can’t believe it, but she’s a tough cookie.

She was in accounting the whole time.

This calls into question those disclaimers are the beginning…

“Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead is purely coincidental…”
Yeah, right!

This level of similarity is no coincidence. 

Do the producers of the show know about this??

Someone tweet this shit at the official ST account.

They might have to change the storyline, now.

This Aunt Caught Her Niece Sleeping On Her Head And People Are Freaking Out

Halloween is fast approaching, and people are pretty easily spooked this time of year. Twitter user Mikaela Long recently babysat her niece and was understandably concerned for her own safety when she looked at the monitor to see the baby sleeping on her head. 

Remind you of anything?

People were pretty terrified by the whole thing.

While others saw an opportunity.

The child’s mother told Buzzfeed that the girl has been doing this a lot lately, so there’s probably nothing to be worried about. “She’s been quite acrobatic lately,” she said. But said that like us, she has no idea why she actually sleeps on her head. “I think it’s just her settling down and getting comfortable,” she said.
