Elon Musk Challenges Johnny Depp To A Cage Fight - Boss Hunting
ICYMI - Elon Musk has "challenged" Johnny Depp to a cage fight. Here's how we think this ridiculous hypothetical would go down.
The ongoing libel case between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard has provided some rather disturbing insights, painting a frankly horrifying picture of a toxic relationship. The latter defecating on the former’s pillow purely out of spite, the former having his finger sliced off during a fit of rage… and now, Depp’s legal team is claiming Heard once engaged in a threesome with ex-husband Elon Musk and Cara Delevigne while they were still married. There are apparently even texts sent by Depp himself threatening to slice off the billionaire CEO’s penis. Now usually, we wouldn’t engage with such low-brow tabloid fodder. But in the past few days, a rather intriguing development has occurred vis-a-vis Elon Musk and Johnny Depp. While Musk maintains no such infidelity transpired, this messy slice of drama has caused some friction. Honours besmirched. Good names sullied. Nerves flicked, if you will. Its all gotten pretty medieval. To the point where Musk publicly issued a “challenge”: If Johnny wants a cage fight, just let me know.” Elon Musk, The New York Times Which is why we’re gathered here today… Fighter comparisons While Elon Musk has a physical and biological advantage over Johnny Depp, he’s also – how do I put this delicately – a goddamn nerd. One that I’d wager has never taken a punch in his life. Having grown up with a certain brand of ultra-comfort only afforded to white South-Africans who owned an emerald mine during apartheid, there’s just no way of imagining Musk being “tough” outside of the boardroom. Depp stands firmly on the other end of the spectrum. While he has now lived a great deal of his life as a Hollywood A-lister, he wasn’t always living in comfort. Dropping out of school at age 12 to tour as a guitarist with rock bands tends to toughen you up real quick. And you just know he can throw a punch (LEGAL NOTE: that was just a general statement, we’re not implying anything else regarding his character nor an inherently violent disposition). Furthermore, anyone who can do that many Tim Burton films and wear that many sashes beyond their 20s is not to be trifled with. This is clearly a man with nothing to lose – both figuratively and literally given his financial situation. Non-officially sponsored by BH… and Modelo. Training camps This is where Musk has an even clearer advantage – the preparation process. Not only does he have virtually unlimited resources to dedicate towards sourcing the most capable experts from around the world; he’s also mates with Joe Rogan. Rogan brings world-class grappling instructors with him such as 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu founder and no-gi revolutionary, Eddie Bravo, as well as Jean Jacques Machado of the Machado/Gracie dynasty. Rogan himself isn’t exactly a slouch either, having previously coached the mixed martial arts GOAT – Georges St-Pierre – on how to perfect his turning side kick. Hypothetically speaking, Musk could literally build himself into whatever fighter he pleases. The same way you and I customise a character for some video game profile. +2 boxing, +3 wrestling… I would say +2 disregard for human life – which is necessary for beating another person into physical and mental submission – but you tend to max out that character stat when your company uses child labour to mine cobalt. Depp, on the other hand, would have less access to expertise but more access to unconventional forces. Forgoing the usual diet and exercise plan of a professional fighter, we see him lighting up enough jazz lettuce to contact the afterlife and enlist the help of the legendary Hunter S. Thompson. Endowed with the mystic forces of Thompson’s sesh-gremlin spirit, there wouldn’t be a single substance on God’s green earth that Depp could not smoke, snort, or inject; nor a beating he could not withstand. Like that star boost from Super Mario Cart… only completely fried. And no, in case you’re wondering, USADA doesn’t test athletes for being inhabited by the ghost of a cooked cunt. Or peyote. Or bath salts, come to think of it. Only traditional performance-enhancing drugs. How Elon Musk wins Just putting it out there – Depp can take a punch. Several, even. If you can handle his calibre of drug and alcohol abuse sustained across 20+ years, you can eat an overhand right from a largely sedentary billionaire CEO approaching his 50s like it’s a fucking tic tac. Leg kicks too. Because you can’t feel pain if you’re zooted out of your mind, hurling towards the fifth dimension. Musk could always go for the decision, sure, but he risks tiring out and leaving himself vulnerable to a completely unpredictable beating. One that defies all expectations and the entire plane of logic. Meaning his only shot is a clean submission. To minimise the risk of escape, it’ll have to be one which renders Depp unconscious. Rear naked chokes, guillotines, Peruvian neckties, triangles, gogoplatas, hell, even a no-gi ezkiel if he can pull it off. Of course, this all hinges on being able to get close enough before Depp swings. POV: You’re a random hotel room about to incur the full wrath of a not-sober Johnny Depp simply by existing. How Johnny Depp wins Punch Musk in the face a bunch of times. That’s it. That’s literally all he has to do. How durable can an engineer’s granola chin be? Our bet? While Elon Musk may have the superior:
- fight IQ
- regular IQ
- overall health
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Specs Have Just Been Leaked - Boss Hunting
An FCC listing partially revealed the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra specs. And given what else we know, lets just say one hell of a phone is on its way.
Samsung has a reputation for being très terrible when it comes to keeping a secret. Whether by nature of by design is another matter entirely. Recently, Samsung Russia “accidentally” posted an image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra at the bottom of its site page before swiftly removing it; and just yesterday, an FCC listing partially revealed the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra specs. The good news? We’re in for quite the smartphone design. This aforementioned FCC listing confirmed the following:
- 9 x 5 cm dimensions
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor (potentially the yet-to-be announced Snapdragon 865 Plus)
- Wireless charging
- 5G connectivity
5 Things Apple Just Revealed At WWDC 2020 - Boss Hunting
In addition to migrating from Intel processors to Apple's own ARM-based A-series chips, here were some of the biggest Apple announcements from WWDC 2020.
Despite being held virtually, this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC 2020) still brought the heat. Especially in the case of Apple‘s announcements. In addition to publicising the decision to migrate from Intel processors to Apple’s own ARM-based A-series chips, here were some of the biggest takeaways from WWDC 2020. Revamping the iPhone experience with iOS 14 The new iOS introduced “the biggest update ever” to Home Screen pages. The widgets will now display timely information at a glance, as well as having the capability to be pinned in different sizes. At the end of the Home Screen pages, you’ll find the App Library which will automatically organise all user apps into a simple, easy-to-navigate view; and even intelligently suggest certain apps that may be useful during certain occasions. As for incoming FaceTime, phone calls, and Siri interactions, they can now showcase an all-new compact design with picture-in-picture support. Which basically means you can minimise screens to simultaneously operate multiple apps/functions. CarKey This is yet another fresh addition to iOS 14, but we believe it warrants its own segment in the article. CarKey is a feature which will utilise your device’s NFC capabilities to unlock and start paired vehicles. Tap your iPhone or Apple Watch on the door to unlock, and tap it against the relevant panel once inside before hitting the ignition button to start. This will, of course, only be available with specific vehicles which have CarKey Support – the first of which is the upcoming BMW 5 Series. And as an added bit of convenience, CarKey will also be sharable via Messages, as well as allowing users to disable it through iCloud in case anything goes wrong. AirPods get a major upgrade AirPods Pro will now offer spatial audio with dynamic head-tracking in order to deliver a “theatre-like experience”. But the real juicy news… all AirPods will soon automatically switch between Apple devices. iPhones, iPad, Macs, TVs – all back and forth without having to crack open the Bluetooth settings. And when you receive a call, it instantly knows to jump back to your phone. Now that’s handy. A whole lot of extras coming to Apple Watches Where to begin with this one…
- Watch Faces & SharingThe watchOS 7 will offer more unique combinations and configurations of watch faces to suit just about any occasion. Style out, personalise it, and even share it with others through Messages or Mail.
- Sleep TrackingSleep tracking will now be present to provide users with a 360 picture of their health. Tools to help achieve desired amounts of sleep, keeping to a schedule, and so forth will also be present. The biggest win in this department? Silent haptic alarms and gentle sound alarms.
- Automatic Handwashing DetectionUsing motion sensors and microphones, Apple Watches will now detect when you wash your hands – and shame you into washing them for at least twenty seconds. As recommended by healthcare professionals.
- Exercise & FitnessWatchOS 7 will mark the arrival of four new workout types, supported by powerful heart rate and custom-built motion algorithms: Core Training, Dance, Functional Strength Training, and Cooldown. The redesigned Activity app on iPhone – renamed “Fitness” – provides a streamlined view of data.
- Translate Siri will soon be able to translate languages through dictation on the wrist. Although we’re not sure how successful this one will be at this point.
Splendour In The Grass Has Just Been Cancelled For 2020 - Boss Hunting
Splendour in the Grass has been cancelled for 2020... kind of. According to event organisers, it's simply "pushed back" to 2021. Find out more here.
When Splendour in the Grass was moved from it’s usual July dates to October, there was a glimmer of optimism. Almost an unspoken promise that we’d collectively beat COVID-19 well before those three glorious days in Byron Bay. But as time went on, it became painfully clear that would not be the case; and now, SITG 2020 has officially been pushed back to 2021 (they seem to be avoiding the term cancelled). We have been monitoring the situation closely for the past few months and while Australia is now moving into the recovery phase, there is no timeline yet around the opening of international borders,” says event producers Jess Ducrou & Paul Piticco via press statement. “As a result, and with our audience interests front and centre, we must announce the reschedule to 2021 now.” All 2020 tickets will remain valid in 2021, with refunds available for those who can no longer make it. And those currently on the waitlist for the exclusive resale window can snag a pass from 12 PM on Thursday the 11th of June until midnight (or until the allocation is exhausted). At this point in time – because it’s always better to manage expectations instead of getting your heart broken straight up – the event will occur on its usual dates next year:
- Friday 23rd of July – Day 1
- Saturday 24th of July – Day 2
- Sunday 25th of July – Day 3
WATCH: The SpaceX Starlink Mission In Realtime - Boss Hunting
Looking for something else to do aside from scrolling? Direct your attention to the SpaceX Starlink Mission happening right now via live stream.
The greatest advantage of this modern age is being able to witness events – historical or otherwise – occur in realtime. And virtually anywhere in the world. If you’re looking for something else to do during the lunch break aside from hitting up the infinite scroll, you can direct your attention to the SpaceX Starlink Mission happening right now via live stream. At the risk of exposing my very own poor understanding of science, I’ll let the official description take over from here: SpaceX is targeting Wednesday June 3 at 9:25 p.m. EDT, 1:25 UTC on June 4, for its eighth launch of Starlink satellites. Falcon 9 will lift off from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. A backup opportunity is available on Thursday, June 4 at 9:03 p.m. EDT, 1:03 UTC on June 5. Falcon 9s first stage previously supported the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018, the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019, and two separate Starlink missions in May 2019 and in January 2020. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9s first stage on the Just Read the Instructions droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. The Starlink satellites will deploy in an elliptical orbit approximately 15 minutes after liftoff. Prior to orbit raise, SpaceX engineers will conduct data reviews to ensure all Starlink satellites are operating as intended. Once the checkouts are complete, the satellites will then use their onboard ion thrusters to move into their intended orbits and operational altitude of 550 km. Watch the SpaceX Starlink Mission below.
