Saturday Night Social: This Is What I've Been Waiting For

Today, I finally came to terms with the fact that I suck at telling jokes. If a joke is longer than two lines, I am bound to fuck it up.

Whitewashing and the Problem With the Ice Bucket Challenge

Ah, the Ice Bucket Challenge. Who doesn't love a trend built solely around charitable contributions aimed at eradicating a debilitating disease? Me.

It's becoming more and more apparent that Lifetime's upcoming movie The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story is one giant shitshow.

Here's How Anatomically Impossible That Spider-Woman #1 Cover Is (NSFW?)

A few weeks ago, our pals over at io9 showed the Milo Manara cover illustration for Spider-Woman #1 in all its as(s)tounding opposite-of-majesty.

Whether it's lice, bedbugs, or tapeworm, parasites come in all shapes and sizes, and pretty much all of them make me want to douse myself in Raid and jump out my fourth story window. But now, scientists have provided an in-depth analysis of an even smaller type of tenant of the human body: a mite that resides in the… » 8/30/14 3:01pm Yesterday 3:01pm
