Adult Legoland fans are really angry they’re not allowed in the kids playground


Everyone loves Lego, but not everyone is allowed to enjoy the new Legoland Discovery Centre in Melbourne, Australia.

According to The Guardian, members of the Adult Fans of Lego community (AFOL) – yes, this is a thing – were outraged after learning they couldn’t access the center’s playground because of their age. So outraged, in fact, that one man went so far as to threaten to file a human rights complaint against Legoland.

For goodness sake, Lego – sometimes grown adults just want to have fun.

The complaints against the Discovery Centre, which just opened on Tuesday, stem from the fact that it reportedly prohibits adults from entering the center unless they’re accompanied by a child age 17 or younger.  Read more…

“Listen to me. When the time comes, you gotta run and don’t look back. This is over.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in fall 2017.

The internet is pretty dang excited about Nintendo Switch


With a little over 12 hours of notice, Nintendo dropped a preview of its next console, Nintendo Switch.

As soon as the video went live, the internet did what it does best: react on Twitter — and most of it was positive. 

NINTENDO SWITCH !! Looks like a better version of what WIi U should of been ITS CRISP ITS CRISP!

Super Smash Bros. Melee professional Wizzrobe chimed in saying the Switch is a better version of Nintendo’s last console, the Wii U, which had a similar controller with a screen but way less options and way less portable.

I’m sold on Nintendo Switch’s capabilities. Splitting the controllers off for portable play is pretty great.

No, you can’t use your self-driving Tesla to make money through Uber


Trying to make some extra money with your new Tesla? Read the fine print first. 

Tesla is banning its customers from using their Model X or Model S electric cars — now equipped with the hardware to allow full autonomous driving at some point in the future — as Uber drivers. Customers can drive their cars for a ride-sharing service like they would with any other vehicle, but can’t use the cars’ antonomous features to have them pick up passengers on their own. 

The restriction was buried in the fine print under a section describing the cars’ “full self-driving capability,” as pointed out by Ars TechnicaRead more…
