If Trump toilet paper isn't enough for you, sending the new president a pertinent message on TP and other bathroom items might do the trick.
A group of activist friends based out of New York City frustrated with the results of November's election are facilitating a sh*tshow of sorts straight to Donald Trump's mailbox at the White House.
If you write a message on toilet paper, a pad or a tampon, the group will mail it to D.C. as part of their "Million Mile Message" campaign. For $10, it's act of resistance that's a bit different to sending a postcard or letter.Donald Trump, White House, Mail, Resistance, and Lifestyle
Quick: if you had to pick one app that had the-best-year-ever in 2016 what would you pick? Pokémon Go? Super Mario Run? Instagram?
How about Bitmoji?
That's right, the Snapchat-owned app for making customizable emoji is, by at least one measure, besting all the competition. The two-and-a-half-year-old app has seen explosive growth over the last year to become one of the fastest growing apps in the U.S, according to a new report from comScore.
Fueled by Snapchat's user base, the app is growing faster than Venmo, Tinder, Uber and Lyft, according to the report, which comes almost exactly a year after it was (unofficially) announced Snap was acquiring Bitmoji maker BitStrips.

Plastic is soooo yesterday.
Wells Fargo, being the hippest bank to allegedly open more than 2 million fraudulent accounts in its customers' names, knows this.
And so, as of March 27, the San Francisco-based company is giving its account holders a way to access their money at 13,000 Wells Fargo ATMs across the U.S. without the use of a physical ATM card.
As long as they have a smartphone, that is.
Reuters reports that instead of the old fashioned insert-a-card-into-the-machine routine, customers can use the Wells Fargo app to generate an eight-digit code. That code, plus a customer's PIN number, will allow the withdraw of cash. Read more...More about Banking, Mobile, Atms, Wells Fargo Center, and Smartphones
Love it or loathe it, Love Actually is the film that refuses to die.
For whatever reason it's burrowed into our collective consciousness on both sides of the Atlantic, and when news of a 10-minute sequel was announced recently the internet quietly melted down with anticipation.
On Friday, after hours of teasing during the BBC's annual Red Nose Day event, the short clip finally aired. Hugh Grant, Keira Knightly, Colin Firth and the most of the rest returned for the skit, which Richard Curtis said was to check in and "see what everyone is now up to."

What does Bill Murray do when his son's college basketball team scores a massive March Madness upset?
He ruffles a friend's hair with infectious joy, apparently. Meanwhile, the privilege of seeing Bill Murray in the stands is turning the rest of us into Xavier Musketeers fans as well.

Please, everyone: don't ever, EVER just blindly follow directions from randos you follow on Twitter.
Certain groups on the social network (read: teens) have tweeted this month to encourage followers with iPhones to give Siri a simple numerical command, "108," and wait to see what happens next.
It's presented as yet another mindless Siri trick, but it's much more serious than that. Instead of just telling a stupid joke or, as one person claimed, unlocking a mini-Biebs show, Siri will initiate a call to the nearest Emergency Services. If you're not ready for it, you might not be able to cancel the call. Read more...More about Siri and Tech
President Trump, in a major defeat for republican efforts, pulled the Trump-Ryan Obamacare repeal bill on Friday afternoon after learning it didn't have enough votes to pass.
The failure is a huge win for millions of Americans who would have found themselves without healthcare had the repeal taken place.
Though the majority of Americans will celebrate this victory, let's not forget those who are affected by this tremendous loss. Read more...

So it appears that some Uber recruiters are aware of the sexism problems at the ride-hailing giant.
After Mashable published an interview with senior software engineer Kamilah Taylor, who publicly shared (on Twitter) her awkward interaction with Uber, another potential recruit sent his experience.
Genady Okrain is the founder of an app called Momento GIFs and is based in San Francisco, where Uber is headquartered. It's no secret that the company is aggressively hiring. Uber reported having more than 9,000 employees in early January. That changed to more than 11,000 in late February.

It was an irresistible scene: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, fresh off the crushing defeat of his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, listening to "Last Resort" by Papa Roach as he drove away in a black SUV.
Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
This is my last resort
Unfortunately, Ryan crying the pain away via Papa Roach after failing to take away healthcare from 24 million Americans was fake news. The joke-turned-hoax blew up fast on Twitter, with the original Photoshop job looking like it came from Justin Halpern.
