2. Second Cup goes to pot.

“Coffee chain The Second Cup plans to open a network of recreational cannabis dispensaries, starting in Western Canada and then potentially moving east to other provinces where the drug is expected to soon be legal.”


3. Just look at this sexy Aston.

“This 1962 Series IV has the desirable Superleggera-process, hand-formed aluminum alloy body panels over a rigid steel tube frame. The motor has been upgraded to larger 4.2-litre inline-six and the entire car has received a complete restoration to a high standard. A perfect driver’s car, this DB4 is ready for the road.”


4. Shut up or Stan Lee will sue you.

“Though Stan Lee has been largely missing from the public eye in the months since his wife’s death last summer, troubling reports have been surfacing about his well-being. Now the 95-year-old is speaking out through a new video in which he threatens legal action against those reporting on his life.”


5. The Game Boy is dead. Long live the Game Boy.

“There’s a modded Game Boy out there in just about every color combination. Many come equipped with modern upgrades like lithium batteries and backlit displays. More adventurous modders have hacked the design, offering Game Boys running emulators with extra buttons and docks for GBA cartridges. They share the beloved, brick-like form factor of their predecessors but not much else.”
