Duolingo is taking your daily reminder of push notifications one step further – by having a large green owl appear in real life and follow you to remind you to practice your language lessons.

If you've ever met someone from Tinder and you were surprised by his real height, this joke could bring some poetic justice. Tinder has announced a height verification feature "coming soon," which will give honest people a badge of honor after they check their height by taking a picture in a commercial building. As Tinder points out: "We expect to see a large decrease in the 80% of men in Tinder who claim to be over 6 feet." That's fine with us, as long as we're all living our truths. "
