Technology is running rampant through our modern society. From smart phones, to smart cars, to smart tvs and even smart house houses, technology has surrounded us in every aspect of our lives. While it has made life easier in so many ways, it hasn’t come without a price. From a monetary standpoint, many of us have become so addicted to our technologies that we go out and by the new update every few months. It has also brought people from across the world so much closer to us, while pushing the people who are right around us further away. So many spend our days and nights looking down at our phones and tablets and not looiking into the eyes of our loved ones having real face to face human connections.

Now with all this being said, its hard to deny new technology is just totally awesome and so much fun. As much as we like to bash technology there is no denying that most of us truly love the new innovations. The key as with most things in life is balance between your relationship with your loved ones and your relationship with technology. Finding this perfect equilibrium is difficult but attainable and it is something most of us struggle with daily but can accomplish if we put the effort in.

In today’s story we are going to focus in on one technology most of us are very familiar with and if we haven’t used it directly more than likely we’ve heard of her. Her name is Siri and she is the iPhone’s artificial intelligence voice assistant technologies that makes using your phone so much easier. For instance, instead of having to text a friend with your big old fat fingers, you can now say Siri ‘Text Mike Hello How Are You?’ and like magic Siri will go ahead and do as you wish.

Siri will give you directions to anywhere in the world, play you any song ever made, find and read you any book, make and remind you of all your points and so on and so forth. Basically Siri can do almost anything your heart desires. However there are some things Siri can do that actually can be quite counterproductive and today’s video will go over this.

There are somethings that you should never ask or tell Siri to do. One of these statements you should absolutely never say to Siri is the number 108!

Apples Begin To Brown Right Away. This Brilliant Trick Will Keep Them Fresh For More Than 24 Hours

Have you ever toiled over a fruit salad just to have it turn brown before you have even finished making it? Fruit browning can ruin the presentation and texture of any dish that contains susceptible fruits. Many people use lemon to keep the fruit from browning and to keep it fresh and crispy for longer. The downside is that lemon changes the flavor of the dish, which can sometimes be good, but other times can have a negative impact on the flavor. Watch this video to find out a trick that will let you keep your fruit fresh for even longer, without negatively impacting the flavor!

So what is the secret? One of Nature’s most magical substances, honey! The honey that is eaten by humans is made by honey bees from the nectar of various flowers. Due to its chemical properties, it can be stored for an incredibly long time without going bad, if stored properly. There are examples of honey being preserved for centuries, and it was even used as a preservative in ancient Egypt.

Browning happens because of an enzyme called polyphenol oxidase, and the honey contains a compound that counteracts the enzyme and stops the browning. The most common fruits that are susceptible to browning include apples and pears, but the problem is not limited to fruit. Potatoes and parsnips are also prone to browning, and this trick works on them as well!

Have you found this trick to work on any other fruits or vegetables?

Video: Squirrel Eats One Too Many Fermented Crabapples Gets Drunk and Does THIS!

It happens sometimes. An evening spent grabbing a drink with friends turns into you having one too many cocktails and before you know it you end up drunker than anticipated. Such lapses in judgment usually do not end up being recorded and posted on the internet. Such was not the case for one furry little squirrel. He was found in a backyard apple tree feasting on fermented crab apples and ended up gorging a little too much on the tasty snack.

When he goes to do the walk of shame towards home he sloppily disembarks from his tree bar. Gone are the graceful squirrel movements we are accustomed to seeing. Instead, he hops towards a fence through the snow, but only gets a few steps before his troubles set in.

Despite his best efforts he seems stuck in one place. He hops repeatedly, but appears to only be going up and down and not forwards much at all. He slides backwards and repositions himself to try again. This time he seems to be scampering sideways and even backwards. Any progress he made is lost as he drunkenly flails around in the snow.

Finally, he makes it to another tree and manages to climb a few feet up. Perhaps he thought that it was his home tree, but soon after he realizes his mistake and takes off, hopping awkwardly through the forest. Maybe he went searching for more crab apples or some bread to sober himself up with.

Whatever the case, the rare and amusing sight of it all makes his spectators laugh throughout the video. If he were human this squirrel would be making quite a scene! Hopefully the tipsy little guy made it home safe and didn’t have a nasty hangover the next day.
