It usually involves a new toy, treats, and extra time with my birthday dog enjoying an outdoor activity together.

If that's accurate, then I'm actually in the minority.
The Internet is amazing! It gave us the ability to get food delivered without having to talk to another human being on the phone. Also, a bunch of other stuff. But all progress comes with a price. These are the things we've lost to this new, technologically advanced future world we live in.

There's a lot of money to be saved if you can find a way to scavenge those scraps of soap.
Physicists say there may be a way to prove that we live in a computer simulation Back in 2003, Oxford professor Nick Bostrom suggested that we may be living in a computer simulation. In his paper, Bostrom offered very little science to support his hypothesis — though he did calculate the computational requirements needed to pull off such a feat. And indeed, a philosophical claim is one thing, actually proving it is quite another. But now, a team of physicists say proof might be possible, and that it's a matter of finding a cosmological signature that would serve as the…
According to a group of American youths, the US government is failing to uphold the preamble to the constitution —specifically, the government has failed "promote the general Welfare" of the people by "failing to protect the atmosphere." And, despite being too young to vote, the group—a non-profit called Kids vs. Global Warming— is trying to sue the US government in a case which is to go before the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C.
