[NSFL] Figure 1, An Instagram For Doctors, Is Disgusting & Fascinating

[NSFL] Figure 1, An Instagram For Doctors, Is Disgusting & Fascinating

I love photography, and hence I love Instagram. It’s probably the most used app on my phone after Chrome and Facebook Messenger, and I love flicking through photos of breakfast, awesome cars, or street photography. It’s a dash of creativity in a busy university student’s life. What it isn’t, however, is edgy. That’s where Figure 1 comes in.

It’s an Instagram for doctors, but not one to share awesome photos of sad looking hospital wards or joyous moments between patients and their families. It’s an app that doctors upload photos of weird or ongoing cases to so they or others can compare what they’re looking at with what the consensus might be elsewhere. If you aren’t a doctor though it’s a very good source of WTF for the day.

Feeling brave? Check it out here and I seriously recommend checking out this write up on The Verge. I, personally, shall uninstall the app and never think about it again. There are a couple of screenshots available  after the break, but only check them out if you haven’t eaten recently.

Some People Are Heartless

Some People Are Heartless

Homeless-people-read-mean-tweets-1170x652[1]

The interwebs has provided me an extremely vast number of reasons why I should both feel ashamed of calling myself human, and also be proud of our existence. Unfortunately, as the title might point out, in this case its the former.

The agency that produced this was Leo Burnett Toronto, a Canadian subsidiary of the Chicago based agencies which boasts the title of being one of the largest worldwide agencies. All thanks to this guy. Anyways back to the commercial.

Jimmy Kimmel started the trend with his series of ‘Celebrities Read Mean Tweets‘. He put a face to the unsavoury activity of people insulting celebrities, even though they are people just like you and me. The series showed that Twitter, even though a platform meant to connect, can also be a place of deject. Naturally the trend got popular and people started making videos for all kinds of professions, from pornstars to teachers.  If you haven’t seen Leo Burnett’s take yet, here it is:

Why are you talking about this?

Well reader, before I start my occasional chatter, can you answer me this question. What does home mean to you?

  • A roof over your head?
  • A place you go to wash, eat and sleep?
  • A place where you go to at the end of the day to see your family?
  • All of the above? (I thought so)

Just imagine not having any of this. What would you do reader? And yet there still exists heartless tweets that plague the social networks we spend hours on such as:

I literally couldn’t believe me ears when I heard some of them.  Now some of you might say, ‘hey Justin what if I actually helped these people but they chose to drink or smoke, what was the value in any of that?’. Well I’m glad you asked. By doing that you’ve given them the privilege of choice, something which not all of us have.  I’m not trying to be some armchair critic who lambastes humanity from a distance, I’ve gone ahead and donated so that maybe the smallest thing I could do can make a difference. And I suggest you do that too. Don’t be heartless, get involved.

NSFW: Your competitor is a dick, literally

NSFW: Your competitor is a dick, literally

ibm-penis-hed-2015[1]Would have come in handy for Apple back in the day, notice the ‘I’

You know those other losers who are trying to outsell you. They think they’re so smug with their dumb bright coloured vintage logo. They think they’re some Wisenheimer with the number of happy clients they claim they have and the coffees they drank, oh poor babies save them from doing mediocre work!

Now when it comes to business , everything that seems even remotely mean is usually kept behind closed doors. Or else done through quirky comparative advertising and then be called a clever bastard, like the guys at Burger King or Pepsi, who’ve been doing this stuff before I was even born.

You could do that, or else you could just dish out 25 dollars and have some designers morph a dick into your competitor’s logo. The guys that came up with this ingenious idea, have, in my opinion, created the funniest cash cow known to mankind. It’s called Penised.com and everything about it is just plain glorious. Their about page is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while. It’s basically an embedded video showing a scene from Superbad where it shows Jonah Hill’s character dick-drawing fetish. Perfectly reasonable, right?
