Parler ban pushes random app 'Parlor' to top of app store charts
"All right well. I don't know if you guys saw this. But there is a new app that has been skyrocketing to the top of the charts and the google play store and apple. You guys know what i'm talking about. It's called parlour. Now you may be talking about parlor a. r. l. He are the app that has been scrubbed from humanity for the internet for breeding ground for organizing hate groups. I'm actually not referring to that parlor. I'm referring to the parlor that's spelled p. a. r. l. o. r. which people mistakenly thought they were down other parlor. The oh this great tight. It's existed for over a decade and has just gotten rid floating out there until their name made the news and people started downloading. It mistakenly thank you. They don't mike god. It looked like a swing at a really kind of convoluted idea. Like this is their their their tagline. The first and only social network. It's clear mud. What it does guy says the first and only social network so evidently about ten years ago a developer had an idea for what was essentially like a kind of a chat roulette type of situation where he would listen. I do not want to disparage whoever invented. Par lower This one that because they're having a lot of success right now guys are blowing up one day and we're like what is all what is it didn't take off when they launched a decade ago. It's terrible i guess. Who wants randomly get on a phone call with somebody like that's what it does. You can go into these different topics in rooms. Like say it's clubhouse. Yeah yeah like here for example. Let's say. I wanted to go into the vip fan clubs room. I will randomly be on the phone with like another billie eilish fan. Hypothetically there aren't a lot of active users. You're probably a couple reporters downloaded dry out. The few people that got on the phone with somebody. They got hung up on almost immediately. So it's a it's a very odd apu was a big swing. Just didn't work out but the developer never removed it from the stores right now. Theoretically there's a lot of very angry right wing radicals making random phone calls and a hud dated web. One point zero like it's it's totally janke. It looks like an old like wanna be my space from a decade ago. That barely functions. So congratulations parlor shirt day. He has finally arrived. maybe people are using it. Maybe it'd be like hey man. I was actually accidentally downloaded parlour. Good condo in the vip clan or the celebrity users vertical which there is one where you can evidently talked to celebrity users. Those unclear what celebrities are using it. Hypothetically if you were celebrity downloaded the app go right there because plug you up with the fans. So
Colombia's 'cocaine hippos' must be stopped, scientists warn
"Colombia's cocaine. Hippos must be stopped, Scientists warn. Not bad news for you, but it's bad news for the hippos. Please tell me about the cocaine Impose. I'm curious. I am now firmly entrenched in my decision to go with the bad news first, cause it's got cocaine hippos. Pablo Escobar's hippos are taking over the marshlands of Colombia. This so called cocaine hippos were illegally imported to the country by the notorious drug Lord. What the rapidly breeding beasts have now grown to become the largest invasive species on the planet. So here's what happened. I guess Pablo Took control, and I should know this because I did. I did a school report on him when I was in, like sixth grade, which was a crazy person to pick. But you know, even back then I was kind of a baller. So when Escobar was killed, authorities took control of his 7000 acre estate, including a personal zoo. And here's what happened. Four of the hippos escaped. With no real predators. There are anywhere between 80 to 100, descendants of the Escobar's former pets terrorizing the country's lakes and rivers. Scientists have projected the hippo population could surge to 1500 by 2024. Hippos posed a threat to the natural wildlife since their urine and feces are toxic, potentially sickening other species and even humans, So what they're probably gonna have to do is that I have to kill the hippos They don't really want to, but they don't really see any other option. It's pretty insane. I didn't even know at first you hear cocaine, hippos. You think maybe the hippos have that habits or there, there were being used to smuggle cocaine or something like that. Oh, my mind didn't go there, but you know what your that's not about Take No, but I think it's just more of an ode to their former owner. It's funny, though. How a lot of those drug lords and a lot of crazy guys and history loved having You know dangerous pets. Was kind of like their bugaboo. They just loved it. The big tiger's big casts all that stuff. I'm noticing that trend
