Being authentic is a term thrown around a lot on the internet, but that is because it is true. On the internet, you get called out on your BS immediately, and if you don’t believe me, just ask Ivanka Trump.
🔍Be careful what you Google, because it will come back to haunt you
The funniest thing that ever happened involving online ads was when someone who works on a brand website complained about inappropriate ads appearing on the site. These were of a strip club nature and the poor soul kicked up such a fuss but didn’t quite understand how programmatic advertising worked. That is, you are shown ads based on your search history.
Before searching for something online, ask yourself: do I want to see an ad for this on every website for the rest of my life?

🌿Hate coriander? It’s because you have a genetic mutation
This mutation causes you to taste soap when eating coriander/cilantro. So if you are not a fan, it’s because you’re genetically inferior #GeneShaming. My SO hates coriander while I like to put it everything (except dessert, that would be weird). This fact has made my day.
🔬👩Ivanka Trump sciences like a boss
While on an educational tour to showcase Trump’s infrastructure plans, Ivanka took this photo. The internet responded with one of their famous Photoshop Battles, but my favourite responses were when people took the time to show that Ivanka’s serious sciencing wasn’t science at all.
Talking #WorkforceDevelopment and Infrastructure in Iowa today! @realdonaldtrump’s #Infrastructure initiative includes a robust plan to expand skills-focused learning to prepare the next generation of American workers for 21st century job opportunities. Thank you @kimreynoldsia for your commitment to STEM education and skills training and for all the amazing work that you are doing in the great state of #Iowa! 📸: Rodney White, The Register

I love this so much because:
1) Turtlenecks are a lab safety violation.
2) So is not tying back long hair.
3) So is pouring into a container that you're directly holding.
4) Nobody uses volumetric flasks like that.
It's not even a good attempt at looking smart. pic.twitter.com/IO4vgdTzVW

Ivanka is pouring a 5 mL volumetric flask into something?
1. Hair not tied back. Lab Safety #Fail.
2. Gloves too large for hands. Safety Fail.
3. Always decant into a container on a solid support like a bench/rack. Technique Fail.
4. Stopper still in flask. Basic Logic Fail. pic.twitter.com/ViuT0SmVFV

👶Are you with child?
Forget gender reveal parties and pregnancy shoots, things just got taken to a whole new level because now you can 3D print your unborn child. It’s printed in plaster and you can even get it plated in precious metals. But why stop there? Get a Bedazzler and go crazy.
Umm, 3D Printing your unborn child is a thing you can do now https://t.co/ucf41Qjl7M

You have to watch this:
📺It’s like watching a posh Karl Pilkington
Jake Whitehall is hilarious and if you’ve watched Fresh Meat or Bad Education you will know why. A few days ago I binge-watched Jake Whitehall: Travels With My Father and it did not disappoint. Jake never had a gap year, so he decides to go on a 5-week-trip with his father to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. His dad is very prim and proper and does not like slumming it.
