In today’s Dotted Lines: Millennials, Snapchats, Newtown, outrage, no Facebook friends, sexy Facebook friends, Marvel, and scented underwear.
Every evening, the Daily Dot delivers a selection of links worth clicking from around the Web, along with the day’s must-see image or video. We call it Dotted Lines.
TIME wrote about millennials today. Did you read it? Probably not, because it’s behind a paywall, and come on. Joel Stein, who routinely brought the lulz to TIME a decade ago, put together generalizations that would’ve been topical and funny in 2007: Millennials are lazy mooches who hide in their mothers’ beds instead of finding jobs, blah blah blah. Have fun reading it, olds. What’s really important is that the millennial-run Internet took the prompt and chewed it up and spat it out into something absurd.
Veronica De Souza’s TIME Millennials Tumblr sums it all up.
- If you want the worst of TIME’s coverage, watch a video of Joel Stein, who is 41, “become a millennial” for a day. Can you get through it? No, I couldn’t either. It’s OK.
- HyperVocal has a great short essay on Newtown, Benghazi, and the selective outrage that’s killing America.
- There’s a lot of talk about how Snapchat doesn’t really delete your photos—they’re still there in a secret folder and you can pay someone to dig them up. That may be true, but they’re actually just as deleted as anything else you throw away.
- There is scented underwear for men.
- People keep telling me I should go on Birthright Israel, which sounds fun—it’s a free trip to Israel!—even though you know it’s secretly a breeding farm for young Semites.
- Lessons learned from a week with no Facebook friends.
- Betabeat has a scoop on the State Department ordering Defense Distributed—you know, the 3-D-printed guns—to pull its blueprints.
- Hey, an animated Marvel movie. By Disney. OK.
- We found that you can search Facebook to find who’s on Bang With Friends. Katie Notopoulos one-upped us with some creative Graph Searching.
Thanks for the fun day, Internet. See you next week.
