This Elaborate Post-It Proposal Is Surprisingly Sweet

Will she stick with him?

An ad made by 3M brand Post-It in Korea shows a man renting out three floors of a skyscraper for an elaborate marriage proposal.

A description of the spot says he used 250 people to create an image of a heart with Post-It notes and a special message asking his girlfriend to marry him. The clip has racked up nearly 2 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on April 19.

The ad was made in honor of White Day, a South Korean holiday similar to Valentine’s Day in which men give women candy and gifts (whereas on Valentine’s Day, women give men sweets).

Watch Taylor Swift Try to Have an Entirely Rational Conversation With Sheep

See the look of shear frustration on her face

Important lessons from today: 1) Sheep are impossible to reason with. 2) Sheep are rude.

A video posted by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

Taylor Swift: Singer, songwriter … shepherdess? Not so fast. On Monday, the pop star posted a video on Instagram of herself talking to some sheep with the caption “1) Sheep are impossible to reason with. 2) Sheep are rude.”

The animals seem to be more interested in whether she brought food for them than listening to whatever the seven-time Grammy winner has to say. And they do not look a bit sheepish about interrupting her either. Maybe they just want her autograph? Regardless, she is turned off by their dismissiveness. Talk about bahhh-d blood.

16 Ways People Have Tried to Destroy Their Apple Watches

See what happens when a car runs over one

While some people are desperate to get their hands on Apple Watches, others are already trying to destroy them.

Watch CNET journalist Sharon Profis, host of this torture exercise, try whacking it with a seven-pound cast-iron skillet, rubbing it against different kitchen graters, stepping on it repeatedly and submerging it in cold and boiling water. Profis also dunks the timepiece in red wine and coats it in various condiments such as soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, peanut butter and Nutella.

Meanwhile, a Canadian tech blog (MW Technology on YouTube) tried hitting it with a rubber mallet, irreparably scratching it with various razor-sharp blades, a bagful of keys and against a stone column, before finally running it over with a car:

The gadget was also subjected to a 15-minute cycle in a washing machine:

And another YouTube user TechRax — known for boiling an iPhone 6 in Coca-Cola — pulled a less dramatic stunt, simulating what would happen to an Apple Watch with a blue sport band if someone accidentally dropped the gadget in such a way that it hit the ground face-first.

Wimbledon Bans Selfie Sticks

Dan Kitwood—Getty Images Jocelyn Rae of Great Britain poses for a selfie with fans after her Mixed Doubles first round match with Colin Fleming against Scott Lipsky of the United States and Jie Zheng of China on day five of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on June 27, 2014 in London, England

Organizers cited the much-maligned accessory's "nuisance value"

The Wimbledon tennis tournament has banned selfie sticks.

The Sunday Times reports that the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club referred the “nuisance value” of the accessory (a monorod that is supposed to make taking selfies on cell phones easier) in a statement and said the fans will be prohibited from bringing them into the Grounds so as not to “interfere with spectators’ enjoyment.”

In the last few months, art museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) have also banned the device because of concerns that visitors waving selfie sticks could damage the artworks.
