Rescue of the Day: Brendan Fraser's Career, Which Some Fans are Trying to Save

Since the announcement of a new Mummy movie sans Brendan Fraser, fans of the former Encino Man have been making moves to save the 48-year-old actor’s career. Fraser, who has largely been unseen since his role in the (somehow) Oscar-winner Crash, has kept a low profile these last few years. But in the weeks since the Mummy trailer’s release, intense fan interest has emerged.

Over 34,000 signatures now grace a change.org petition to “Bring Brendan Fraser back into film/television.” Following his 2007, the petition reads, Fraser is required by law to pay $900,000 annually in alimony. The petition pleads with he networks to help get Fraser “back on his feet again” because “we miss him.”

Other efforts to rescue a man that has rescued us from a dull time at the movies many times over have included the #SaveBrendanFraser hashtag on Twitter and, as The New York Post points out, “successfully campaigned to get his ranking on IMDb among the top 500 actors.”

As for the new Mummy, Fraser has given Cruise his blessing saying, “Tom’s going to be great in it. He has incredible worldwide appeal.”

We miss you, Brendan. Good luck.

Fix of the Day: Don't Drop Your iPhone in Lava Like These Guys, Unless You Want to See Something Cool

 

As Steve Jobs would say, "It just works."

The good thing about iPhones is that there is an infinite amount of ways to destroy them. Whether you’re interested in a crushing, a frying, or an old fashioned dunking in the toilet, there's a iPhone death for you. Unlike the actual phone, the destruction of an iPhone is entirely customizable.

However, few iPhone deaths are as cool as the one The Backyard Scientists pulled off in this video. Taking a page from Terminator 2: Judgement Day’s saddest scene, they dipped their iPhone in Lava to similar results.

This isn’t as sad as that moment, but it’s still really cool. Once it’s submerged, the iPhone comes completely apart. But the real money is when they pour the contents into a cast-iron pan, which looks straight-up like T-1000. You’ve got to check this out.

Tech of the Day: The Kissenger Gadget Lets You Kiss Your Phone When Your Lover's Away — Nope, Nothing Sad About That

kissenger gadget lets you kiss over the internet and smartphone

Have you ever been alone late at night and dreamed of your lover’s sweet embrace, your lips longing for their's? Did you dream of a cold, lifeless machine that could replicate the feeling of your lips touching?

Dreams come true.

The Kissenger machine, developed by researchers from the Imagineering Lab at City Unviersity in London, allows you to plug your iPhone into a holster that looks like it has a sponge or something on it. You kiss the sponge and “high precision force sensors” measure the “dynamic forces at different parts of your lips during a kiss." Then the machine transmits those measurements via the Kissenger iOS app. Your partner recieves the kiss, and persumbly enjoy it. Yup,  totally normal and not weird or sad.

Ok. Let’s see who the website says this is for:

Now you can kiss your favorite pop star, and they can indulge in your weird fantasy of kissing them. Fine. Let’s see what else is on this site. This picture:

Great. Yeah, all this seems on the level.

The Kissenger is still just a prototype and requires a headphone jack to plug into their weird kissing sponge, which means iPhone 7 users are safe for now.
