Start your weekend off right with Pedro Pereira’s Brief Guide to Life. Short, simple and to the point, just how I like it.

HUG is an app that allows you to send a remote “hug” that people can feel. Dubbed the worlds first emoji you can feel. Doesn’t beat the real thing of course, but I guess if I was halfway around the world my mom would appreciate the gesture, or be freaked out about putting her cell phone against her heart for too long due to cell phone radiation. Either way it’s the thought that counts and fake hugs are better than no hugs at all, I suppose.

Go F#@king Do It helps you reach your goals by making you put your money where your mouth is. It’s very simple on purpose, you simply enter a goal, a deadline, and the amount you’ll pay if you don’t hit your goal by then and you pick a friend (called a supervisor) who will check if you actually did it. If they say you have, everything is fine and you are not charged. If they say you haven’t you are charged the amount you set. (assuming your supervisor is honest, and if they’re not it kind of defeats the point.)
So who does the money go to? The founder of the site, of course! And that in itself is supposed to be a part of the incentive to hit your goals as having the money go to the supervisor (your friend) or a charity would decrease the pain threshold.
Go Fucking Do It is Nike’s mantra on steroids, so go and get ‘er done folks!
