The Jolly Roger Telephone Co. is a patient robot that wastes the time of telemarketers on behalf of its operator. When a user receives an unwanted call they simply dial the robot and create a three-way call. The telemarketer then ends up talking to the robot while the human user is free to listen in or do something else entirely.
The Jolly Roger Telephone Co. developer Roger Anderson is raising funds through a Kickstarter campaign to launch the robot as a monthly subscription service. The Jolly Roger Telephone Co. also offers users recordings of their calls. The company has already posted a number of sample calls on their YouTube channel.

20th Century Fox released a new trailer during Super Bowl 50 for X-Men: Apocalypse, the upcoming ninth superhero movie in the ongoing X-Men film series and sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past. The trailer gives us a glimpse at the raw power of the evil mutant known as Apocalypse and shows just how hell-bent that he is on destroying everything that mankind has built. X-Men: Apocalypse is currently scheduled to release in theaters on May 27th, 2016.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Joerg Sprave, German slingshot armorer and owner of The Slingshot Channel, let his beard grow for the past two months and recently shaved it all off with a sharp knife. He then took his leftover facial hair, mixed it with epoxy, and used the mixture to build a functioning slingshot. Joerg even turned his manly beard into ammo for his hair-filled slingshot.
After the shaving, the harvest was plentiful. So we went ahead and used the thick beard hairs to stabilize a molded epoxy slingshot. There was even enough hairs left for two bullets!
