Twitch makes cheering exchange rate clear: one penny per bit for streamers | TechCrunch
Twitch announced Monday that users would soon be able to "cheer" their favorite streamers — in the form of expendable emoji purchasable with real-world money. Details were rather scarce so I pressed them — and then, almost certainly unrelated to that, the company provided more details. (It's a penny per bit.)

Intellectually humble people tend to possess more knowledge, study finds
Rubbishy article and/or study.
Appeals to the "humble bookish intellectual" archetype but it really more about so-called "growth mindset" in appreciating that knowledge isn't fixed and in many cases can be fallible.

Anthony Jeselnik on Thoughts and Prayers and Making College Kids Laugh :: Comedy :: Features :: Paste
In many ways, Anthony Jeselnik's third stand=up special Thoughts and Prayers is what we've come to expect from this comic: over-the-top one liners about sexual deviancy, baby killing, and other equally wonderfully NSFW subject matter, all delivered with the winning smile and his devilish charm.
