It's day four of The Verge's time at CES 2016, and morale is not ideal. It's not that we don't love our jobs, and cool gadgets, and writing content for all of you, it's just that we fucking hate being awake for 20 hours a day. You can understand.
Also: after four days of refusing to eat the salad, our choices have come back to haunt us.
We despaired of finding solutions to the mid-CES blues, until a fateful retweet led us to the Twitter account of famous Australian, X-Man, Tony's host, and smiler, Hugh Jackman. Hugh Jackman is a delight, as you may already know from any time you have seen him do anything.
Hugh Jackman is our CES boyfriend
What you may not have known is that his Twitter is the most optimistic and inspirational and occasionally surrealist account of human life that has ever been committed to the web. Hugh Jackman believes in self-love, and posts a selfie almost every day. But he's extremely modest about his accomplishments, offering humble apologies for never mastering the art form.
Hugh Jackman never stops trying though, making his timeline the perfect antidote to CES ennui. You keep selfie-ing sweet prince, and we'll keep CES-ing.
