Life Is Meaningless

| Wed Jun. 18, 2014 11:30 AM EDT

Hello. Good day.

How are you? Are you feeling alive? Are you feeling like life is worth living? Perhaps there is a bounce in your step? Optimism in your eye? Are you eager to embrace the world as it is today and forge an even better one in the smithy of tomorrow?

Good luck with that:

There's a new app called Yo that does simply that: It sends your friends a "Yo" notification with a tiny little robotic voice.

It's hard to take the app seriously, after all the app was created in only eight hours, but Yo already has 50,000 users who have sent approximately 4 million Yos.

The team has also already raised $1 million in funding.

In unrelated news, more than 1.5 million households in America live on $2.00 a day.

Have a nice day.
