There's only so much squinting you can do at a tiny smartphone screen before you start wondering why we ever thought it was a good idea to build devices so small in the first place.

Ben Shapiro calls for crime to be banned

Punditry about pundits is about the worst thing on the internet, but I didn't believe this tweet from Ben Shapiro was real and feel that it's worth a post. It reminds me of his famous "just sell homes inundated by rising sea levels" remark ("Who to, Ben, Aquaman?") — Read the rest

Watch Mike Pence speak over hecklers as they shout "traitor!"

Mike Pence got booed and called "traitor" today while speaking to an audience of religious conservatives at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's annual Road to Majority conference in Orlando, Florida.

Watch: This teen's "biggest mouth in the world" can fit a 2-liter bottle of soda in it

When teenager Isaac Johnson says "I have the biggest mouth in the world," he isn't kidding. It's so big, he can squeeze the base of a 2-liter A&W bottle into it. Stretched open to a vertical 4-inches (10.175 cm to be exact), he's reclaimed the title of the Guinness World Record's largest gape after winning it in 2019 with the same measurement, then losing it last year when his mouth seemed to shrink, measuring at "only" 3.75 inches (9.52 cm). — Read the rest

Enter to win a $5,000 Amazon Smart Entertainment prize package full of cool gear
