Women Were Asked To Draw Their Perfect Penis. Here’s What Happened.

1penisWe usually know what happens when boys draw penises because it’s kind of a standard image, exercised to perfection during high school years, but this is what happens when women draw their ideal penis shape & size!

It’s pretty weird to see the female gender trying to reproduce on paper the male genitalia, because you almost never see men trying to recreate a vagina using a sheet of paper and a pencil (in all fairness, men don’t actually know what’s going on down there).

So, enough chit-chat, because you came here for the results, not for the lessons. Do you fit (pun intended!) any of the descriptions below?

Elite Daily asked several women to draw their ideal penis. Using a ruler, they obliged.

“This is actually my favorite thing to do, is to draw penises,” one participant said.

Asking a girl to describe her ideal penis will normally result in one of two possible outcomes: you’ll either be met with a slap to the face or a quick “Yours, of course” depending on your…

App fail on iPad grounds ‘a few dozen’ American Airlines flights

App used by pilots as ‘electronic kit bag’ since 2013 crashes, leaving planes unable to take off

American Airlines was forced to delay multiple flights on Tuesday night after the iPad app used by pilots crashed.

Introduced in 2013, the cockpit iPads are used as an “electronic flight bag”, replacing 16kg (35lb) of paper manuals which pilots are typically required to carry on flights. They are used to distribute information such as flight plans throughout the airline’s fleet.

But the app that replaced the flight bag crashed on Tuesday, affecting multiple planes scattered throughout the entire fleet, according to passenger reports, leaving the pilots unable to take off. “The pilot came on and said that his first mate’s iPad powered down unexpectedly, and his had too, and that the entire 737 fleet on American had experienced the same behavior,” one passenger told business news site Quartz. “It seemed unprecedented and very unfamiliar to the pilots.”

An American Airlines spokesperson confirmed the issue, telling the Verge: “Some flights are experiencing an issue with a software application on pilot iPads … In some cases, the flight has had to return to the gate to access a Wi-Fi connection to fix the issue. We apologise for the inconvenience to our customers.

“We are working to have them on the way to their destination as soon as possible.”

Facebook Has A New Suicide Prevention Feature. Will It Work?

In February, Facebook announced that it was rolling out a suicide prevention feature. Although the social media platform has given users the option to report suicidal content since 2011, this new feature makes that process easier and provides those struggling with thoughts of self harm with a number of options for taking action.

Here’s how it works: Upon seeing any comments from a friend implying self harm, users are given the option to contact their Facebook friend, another friend or a suicide helpline. From there, the person will be notified that a friend is concerned about them and asked if they’d like to call a friend or message a suicide prevention expert.

Facebook also provides videos about people who have had suicidal thoughts, provides a list of relaxation techniques and offers to help find a self-care expert.

The social media site partnered with a number of suicide prevention networks for this feature including Now Matters Now, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Save.org and Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention.

As of now, the feature is available to about half of Facebook users.

Crayola’s Facebook Page Got Hacked, and Oh My, Look at the Off-Color Posts

If any brand is less deserving of an adult-themed paint job, it’s Crayola.

Yes, the crayon company is synonymous with childlike innocence. But it was anything but on Sunday, when its Facebook page was hacked by unknown deviants. Once inside the brand’s account, the perpetrators shared click-baity links to R-rated sites throughout the day, sending poor Crayola into a panic. 

We’re aware of the situation on our official FB page, which was hacked today, and making every effort to stop the unauthorized posts.

Below are images of some of the posts. While most are relatively tame—containing dirty drawings and innuendo—some of the images are NSFW. 

Crayola eventully took back control of the page and posted this update on Twitter:

We don’t condone the inappropriate & offensive content being posted to the fraudulent Crayola FB page & sincerely apologize to our fans.

You have $8 billion. You want to do as much good as possible. What do you do?

I sat in a San Francisco conference room a few months ago as 14 staffers at the charity recommendation group Give Well discussed the ways in which artificial intelligence — extreme, world-transforming, human-level artificial intelligence — could destroy the world. Not just as idle chatter, mind you. They were trying to work out whether it’s worthwhile to direct money — lots of it — toward preventing AI from destroying us all, money that otherwise could go to fighting poverty in sub-Saharan

Africa.

“Say you tell the AI to make as many paper clips as it can possibly make,” Howie Lempel, a program officer at GiveWell, proposed, borrowing a thought experiment from Oxford professor Nick Bostrom.

The super AI isn’t necessarily going to be moral. Even with positive goals, it could backfire. It could see the whole world as a resource to be exploited for making paper clips, for example.

“Just because it’s very intelligent doesn’t mean it has reasonable values,” Lempel said. “Maybe it starts turning puppies into paper clips.”
