This father found the perfect way to give his daughter away to the man that she loves. In a speech that is both hysterical and tear-jerking, he tells everyone exactly why his baby girl is so special. I really wasn't prepared for all the emotions this put me through...

Remember when Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer made a big splash and acquired Tumblr? The idea was that Tumblr had a large, young, growing audience. Yahoo, with its ad sales expertise would be able monetize that audience.
A survey of marketers by Social Bakers said Tumblr was the least important social property for marketing. Even lower than Google+. This means Yahoo is going to have to put in a lot of work to turn Tumblr into a big revenue generating property.
Martian colonization is a risky proposition. So risky, in fact, that a group of Islamic leaders in the United Arab Emirates issued a religious ruling saying Muslims should not go to the Red Planet. The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment (GAIAE) ruling compares a Mars mission to suicide, and says that those who attempt it can expect the same consequences in the afterlife. In fact, GAIAE went so far as to claim that those seeking to escape God's judgment on Mars would be unable to do so, saying: "This is an absolutely baseless and unacceptable belief because not even an atom falls outside the purview of Allah, the Creator of everything."

Rumors about Apple showing interest in buying Tesla have resurfaced after the SF Chronicle reported that Apple’s M&A chief met with Elon Musk last spring. Considering Tesla’s market capitalization of more than $24 billion, such a deal would be unprecedented for Apple, but the two companies do appear to have a lot of potential synergy.
As a thought experiment, let’s take a look at a few of the reasons Apple acquiring Tesla might make sense.
Apple still hasn’t found an ideal solution for its $160 billion cash hoard. Over the past year, the company has bought back $40 billion of its own shares, with plans to repurchase an additional $20 billion. That’s more than enough to have purchased Tesla outright. While there’s a certain sensible arrogance for a healthy company like Apple believing that repurchasing its own stock is the best investment of its cash, Tesla is poised for near-limitless growth if it can disrupt the automobile industry.
