An insanely difficult Super Mario Maker level has been making the rounds on the internet, and it's one of the most stressful 60 seconds of Mario imaginable. The level is called "P is for Pain" and consists of nothing but spike traps, P switches and trampolines carrying P switches. Something that is notably missing from that list: anything solid to stand on. SEE ALSO: Mario enters the real world in hilarious 'Grand Theft Auto' mod After the first patch of ground right at the start, Mario has to constantly jump and move to avoid death. P switches only offer a brief moment of respite before they disappear completely, so there is no spot to catch your breath anywhere on this level. On top of that, there are no powerups, so Mario dies in one hit. Read more... More about Game Grumps , Reddit , Gaming , Super Mario Maker , and Nintendo

A traditional final act as president is writing a letter to the new guy , congratulating them on their achievement and detailing the responsibilities that will follow. And though Barack Obama and Donald Trump have had their differences, it didn't stop Obama from breaking that special tradition. The full letter is below.

Every resistance needs a good mantra. As Donald Trump takes office, Jaden Smith claimed a temporary space in Queens, NY, where he began repeating the words "He will not divide us" and invited anyone else to join him. He Will Not Divide Us is a project from Labeouf, Rönkkö & Turner , a trio of performance artists behind endeavors like #TouchMySoul and #AllMyMovies. LaBeouf refers to the actor Shia LaBeouf.

Expedia launched a brand new TV ad Friday, timed to drop during CNN's coverage of the Trump inauguration, and it has a very different message than the new president's 'America First' rhetoric. The clip sees a woman travel the world learning about other cultures, helping refugees and fighting for causes she believes in. The theme: Travel broadens the mind and breaks down barriers. SEE ALSO: Hey procrastinators, here's how to score a holiday flight deal If you look over your neighbor's fence, and go see the world, the voiceover promises, "You'll narrowly influence narrow minds. You'll bridge continents, puncture prejudice ... and look back and see that you've made this world a better place." Read more... More about Inauguration , Trump , Travel , Expedia , and Lifestyle

The SP 500 and Nasdaq were also just marginally higher. Stocks initially soared after Trump’s surprise win in November on hopes for big tax cuts for companies and individuals and a fresh round of stimulus spending. Industries likely to see significant regulatory relief under Trump, notably the banking and energy sectors, fared especially well. The dollar also initially soared following Trump’s win. But those gains have slowed in recent days with the Dow staying stubbornly below the psychologically important 20,000 level. The dollar was little changed following the speech. Trump recently broke with longstanding tradition in which presidents decline to comment on the currency and said the dollar had gotten too strong. The Mexican peso, which plunged on Trump’s election over fears of new tariffs on Mexican goods, rose around 1.3 percent by midday Friday.

Just 6.4 miles of ice are holding an iceberg the size of Delaware onto the floating Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica, and scientists warn it could cleave off the ice-bound continent at any time. Researchers who closely monitor the crack cutting across this particular Antarctic ice shelf reported on Thursday that it continued to make rapid progress, expanding another six miles in just the past two weeks. SEE ALSO: An iceberg the size of Delaware is about to break off Antarctica This means that a collapse may be imminent, at which point, one of the top 10 largest icebergs ever observed will break away into the turbulent seas off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula.

The interior of the notebook is also quite a departure for Gigabyte, as the keyboard features a new and larger island style. This time, the keys are noticeably bigger with more spacing between each key. As you can see with the five macro keys included on the left-hand side, the keyboard quite literally stretches from one end of the machine to the other. Beyond the physical size of the keyboard, the key switches feel bouncy and offer firm resistance while typing. Just below that, you'll find a generously sized and silky smooth trackpad. Unfortunately, the Elan software driving this pointing device left us with fewer multi-touch gestures than weve become accustomed to with a Microsoft Precision Touchpad. Laid back The Aero 14s biggest claim to fame is that for all of the hardware inside its actually pretty light.

Pricing In comparing prices across vendors, the 27UD88 is the model number you'll see most often, and it's LG's consumer offering that comes with a one-year warranty. LG also sells a 27MU88 model for business customers, and that model comes with a three-year warranty and is otherwise identical to the 27UD88, so keep the warranty difference in mind if you're comparing prices across vendors and the two models. The 27UD88 carries a list price of 699, but at the time of this writing supplies are very short with many retailers being completely out of stock, so keep an eye out and be ready to grab one if you're in the market for it. LG tells us the supply shortages are temporary, so availability should improve. Note: LG provided the 27UD88 display to MacRumors free of charge for the purposes of this review. No other compensation was received. Tag: USB-C Discuss this article in our forums

Mere moments before Donald Trump began to address the crowds as the 45th President of the United States, the skies over Washington D.C. opened up and it began to rain. The jury's still out on whether this is a sign of God's blessing (or perhaps weeping) or just that thing called rain that happens a lot, but a lot of people have opinions about it. SEE ALSO: Fill out this job application form to be considered for Trump's cabinet The rain began almost immediately after Mike Pence took his oath of office, and it certainly seemed... fitting, for the occasion.

Detroit native Myya D. Jones hasnt graduated from college yet, but that didnt stop the Michigan State University senior from announcing her candidacy for mayor of her hometown earlier this month . Jones has previously worked as a Google Student Ambassador and an intern on Capitol Hill, which were experiences, she said, encouraged her to pursue a career in politics. While I was interning in Congress, I knew [politics] was something I wanted to do,Jones told the Metro Times . I want to give the voiceless a voice. But for Jones, paving an early road to success has been an uphill battle. As a child, Jones was sexually abused and had to take on the responsibility of caring for her five siblings after her mom was diagnosed with bipolar disorder; Jones later discovered she had the disorder as well. But today, shes thriving and wants to service those whove also endured hardship like native Detroit residents whose neighborhoods have yet to see any improvement despite Detroits revivals of its downtown and midtown sections.
