This decade, memes became something not just for a handful of internet nerds who lurked on message boards — memes are now for everyone. Huge technological shifts of the s led to this: widespread smartphone adoption and the rise of newfangled social media platforms like Vine. Memes also became a business — brands used meme-speak and accounts like fuckjerry made big bucks by reposting memes. To determine the ranking of this list, we considered the overall popularity of a meme, its longevity, and historical importance — what kind of impact it had on other memes and internet culture. Here they are:. In , year-old Mason Ramsey sang a Hank Williams song in a Walmart, and the internet went nuts. Ramsey has gone on to have some version of mainstream success, performing country music to live crowds, and, well, good for him. Much like a moth is drawn to a flame, we were drawn to memes about moths and their unquenchable thirst for lamps in summer They got their start with a Reddit post that July, a close-up photo someone took of a moth, which people soon began captioning and photoshopping until it took on a life of its own as a meme.

All rights reserved. Archaeologists excavating this Neolithic village in the nation of Georgia found pieces of clay pots containing residues of the world’s oldest wine. On a small rise less than 20 miles south of Tbilisi, Georgia, a clutch of round, mud-brick houses rises from a green, fertile river valley. The mound is called Gadachrili Gora , and the Stone Age farmers who lived here 8, years ago were grape lovers: Their rough pottery is decorated with bunches of the fruit, and analysis of pollen from the site suggests the wooded hillsides nearby were once decked with grapevines.
In a paper published today in the journal PNAS, an international team of archaeologists has conclusively shown what all those grapes were for. Excavating the overlapping circular houses at the site, the team found broken pottery, including the rounded bases of large jars, embedded in the floors of the village houses. More samples were found at Shulaveri Gora, another Stone Age village site a mile or so from Gadachrili that was partially excavated in the s. Tipplers at a Chinese site called Jiahu were making fermented beverages from a mixture of grains and wild fruit a thousand years earlier.
In later periods, winemakers used pine resin or herbs to prevent wine from spoiling or cover up unpleasant tastes, the same way modern wine producers use sulfites. The evidence adds a new wrinkle to our understanding of the Neolithic, a pivotal period when humans were first learning to farm, settling down and domesticating crops and animals. The gradual process, known as the Neolithic Revolution, began around 10, B.

It’s a tale as old as time: heavy-metal drummer follows viral social media sensation, arranges to meet her in real life, and falls in love. This is the drummer’s fourth marriage Tommy previously married model Elaine Starchuk, actress Heather Locklear , and actress Pamela Anderson, with whom he shares two sons , but it’s the first for Brittany, as well as her first fulfilling relationship.
I’d say Tommy is my first true love and I am finally safe and happy. The pair started dating in June , but according to Tommy, he followed the social media queen long before he met her and thought she was “funny and stupid and cute and beautiful.

I n March , Matthew Vines posted a video on YouTube suggesting that “being gay is not a sin,” and that the Bible “does not condemn, loving, committed same-sex relationships. The video quickly went viral. Vines is a bright young man raised in a Christian home. At age 19, he left Harvard University after his third semester so that he could come out to his family and friends in Wichita. He knew that his father would not agree with the way he reconciled his sexuality with Scripture.
So Vines sought to arm himself with biblical scholarship on the affirmation of same-sex relationships and strove to convince his family and church that they were wrong—that homosexuality is not a sin. His aim is not to present new information, but to synthesize gay-affirming arguments and make them accessible for a broader and younger audience.
Vines does a good job fulfilling this goal. Unfortunately, his book consists of some logical and exegetical fallacies, and it does not address the shortcomings of the authors to whom it is most indebted. And although Vines professes a “high view” of the Bible, he ultimately fails to apply uncomfortable biblical truths in a way that embraces a costly discipleship.

Hoop is the latest Snap Kit blockbuster, rocketing to No. Within a week of going viral, unfunded French startup Dazz saw Hoop score 2. The fact that such a dumbfoundingly simple and already ubiquitous style of app was able to climb the charts so fast demonstrates the potential of Snap Kit to drive user lock-in for Snapchat. Because the developer platform lets other apps piggyback on its login system and Bitmoji avatars, it creates new reasons for users to set up a Snapchat account and keep using it.
Gervais and Pourret have been friends since age two, growing up in small town in France. They met their two developers in high school, and are now marketing students at university. You create an account with some photos and bio information, and start swiping through profiles. If you like someone, you tap a Snapchat button to request their Snap username so you can message them. But then Hoop reveals its savvy virality and monetization strategy.
You do that by sharing and getting friends to open your invite link to the app, adding people on Snapchat that you meet on Hoop, logging in each day, taking a survey, watching a video ad and completing offers by signing up for streaming services or car insurance providers. Those tactics helped Hoop climb as high as No.

Margot met Robert on a Wednesday night toward the end of her fall semester. She was working behind the concession stand at the artsy movie theatre downtown when he came in and bought a large popcorn and a box of Red Vines. He was tall, which she liked, and she could see the edge of a tattoo peeking out from beneath the rolled-up sleeve of his shirt.
But he was on the heavy side, his beard was a little too long, and his shoulders slumped forward slightly, as though he were protecting something. Robert did not pick up on her flirtation. Or, if he did, he showed it only by stepping back, as though to make her lean toward him, try a little harder. But the next week he came into the movie theatre again, and bought another box of Red Vines. After the movie, he came back to her.
From that small exchange about Red Vines, over the next several weeks they built up an elaborate scaffolding of jokes via text, riffs that unfolded and shifted so quickly that she sometimes had a hard time keeping up. He was very clever, and she found that she had to work to impress him. Then, one night during reading period, she was complaining about how all the dining halls were closed and there was no food in her room because her roommate had raided her care package, and he offered to buy her some Red Vines to sustain her.
