Apple Park — Tech giant Apple plans to start moving employees into its new “Apple Park” in Cupertino this week, which has remained somewhat mysterious until this Minecraft expert got a hold of some footage and rebuilt the facility in the program. It’s pretty impressive, and should be noted that while the developer has put 413 hours of work into the project, he’s still put zero hours into having a girlfriend.

Bathing Suit, Bring Your — Don’t look now, but Holland just upped the ante for American bottom-feeding with a new reality show entitled “Bring Your Bathing Suit,” which sees Dutch semi-celebrities trying to guess whether displayed women contestants have real or fake breasts, and which are pregnant with child or simply slightly overweight. The program is expected to test through the roofs with the coveted “awful people” demographic.

Ludacris — Rapper Ludacris baited critics this week with his new video for the tune “Vitamin D,” which features the hip-hopper sporting ridiculous CGI abs.

O’Reilly, Bill — Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly, who just happens to be facing many allegations of sexual harassment, told viewers this week that he’d be taking some time off for a “pre-planned vacation” for some “R&R.” He added, “It’s so nice of my employer to be sending me away on what promises to be a great holiday, and though I don’t know where I’m going yet, they told me to pack a warm coat. Also, I don’t know when my plane ticket back is. They haven’t sent me that yet, weirdly.”
