May 1st, outsourced

This was officially my favorite article this week: the tech oddities of the generation born in the late 70s and early 80s. We really are weird, and this article explained why so well. [HT Amber]

Girl, you don't need makeup - parody video with Amy Schumer.

A test iPad was stolen from a home. Also, a person was kidnapped. (I swear the first version of this article I read did not include the part about the person being released.) [HT Jessie]

Forty years ago: the evacuation of Saigon. [HT Suzanne]

Airline seat swapping turns rough and tumble: interesting article. [HT Suzanne]

Strange to live in a world where it's just minor news that a person was kidnapped. The news-worthy thing was that an important piece of future technology was taken.

Similar that in our 2015 world, animals are taking precedence over people in some situations (and I like animals, so no offense meant here). I read about fires or other accidents where the human victims are hardly mentioned, but we are made aware that a dog or hamster etc. is missing. This happened recently in a residence fire near us. I was wondering how the human victims were faring, and the news only let me know that the pets hadn't been found.
