The Daily Word

Twins are weird. These two sisters (who were born 11 minutes apart) gave birth at the exact same date and time (in their respective time zones).

Some scientists from the University of Zurich in Switzerland are developing AI that can track a target in real time, which according to them will help create a generation of automatons that will be able to round up shopping carts at grocery stores, or bring your luggage to you at the airport, or make self-driving cars work better ... or allow autonomous machines to track and destroy prey easily. Hiyo!

"Punching therapy" is not only a real thing, it's also exactly what it sounds like.

The epidemic will be known as "PokéFever." Prices for Ben Gay, crutches and wheelchairs will undoubtedly skyrocket before next weekend.

In case you didn't know: Smoking pot makes exercising awesome. And a couple of folks in CA plan to open a gym where you can smoke weed while you work out.

There is evidence that it makes you dopey," meaning she's obviously never tried it.
