In preparation for this year’s upcoming public launch of Google Glass, a British lifestyle blog conducted a survey to gauge people’s excitement levels—and discovered that everyone’s just too damn embarrassed to walk around like a fool with a face computer.
It’s a common problem: you’re walking down the street in a European tourist destination and you come upon a giant fridge with a beer logo on it.
But try as you might, you can’t get it to open. Instead of buying a beer elsewhere, you beckon fellow passersby to show them the cruel appliance. A crowd forms. Finally, a Canadian walks up, slides her passport into the high-tech fridge scanner, and the fridge pops open. Free beer for everyone! (Shhh, don’t worry about laws against drinking in public.)
When the heavens open and spew forth little HRH Prince Rupert or Princess Hermione via the loins of Kate Middleton, how will the royals announce the birth? Not through social media — at least not right away.
Buckingham Palace insists the birth will be announced through a proclamation signed by doctors and rushed to the palace grounds, according to The Daily Mail. The notice will be plopped on a golden easel (we shit you not) just within the gates of the palace.
