Judge Orders Man To Write 144 Nice Things About His Ex
Judge Rhonda Loo is getting creative with her criminal sentencing. In the case of Daren Young, who sent his ex-girlfriend 144 "nasty" texts and calls, Judge Loo has ordered him to now write down 144 compliments for his former flame.
That's not all, though. The 30-year-old was given time served after spending 157 days in jail before sentencing. He was also handed down two years of probation, $24-hundred in fines and 200-hours of community service.
For what it's worth, Young says he won't reach harass his ex again and is planning on moving on with his life.

Online Debate Raging Over Burger Emoji
Burgers have long been a subject of debate, with lots of people having differing opinions about which burger is the best, how they should be made and what types of toppings are acceptable. But there’s a new burger controversy waging and it’s not at all what you may expect.
Folks on the Internet are apparently up in arms over some burger emojis. It seems people are upset because both Google and Apple’s burger emojis feature some major mistakes, specifically with the order in which the burger’s ingredients are placed/ Google’s burger emoji has the cheese placed underneath the burger with the lettuce on the top of all the other ingredients, while Apple is getting blasted for putting the lettuce underneath the burger with the cheese all the way on top.
The debate got so huge that even Google's CEO Sundar Pichai even chimed in, tweeting, “Will drop everything else we are doing and address on Monday:) if folks can agree on the correct way to do this!”
