Thank Goodness Richard Dawkins Has Finally Mansplained Rape

Noted evolutionary biologist and atheist yellthinker Richard Dawkins, in his perpetual and incredibly grating quest for absolute rightness, has issued a curious series of thoughts regarding sexual assault.

The Batkid Documentary Trailer Will Have You in Tears


Last November, the Make a Wish Foundation, with the help of oh EVERYONE, took it upon themselves to transform San Francisco into the city of Gotham so that five-year-old leukemia patient Miles could live his dream of being Batman for a day.

Mitt Romney Is the World's Greatest Grandpa. Seriously.

The fewer political things he does, the more likable Mitt Romney is. Case in point: his new gig blogging about being a curious, hiking adventure guy who takes his grandkids on educational vacations through the American West like he's earning every particle of that WORLD'S BEST GRANDPA coffee mug he probably drinks… » 7/29/14 1:30pm Today 1:30pm

Why Bran And Arya No Longer Want To Be Rescued On Game Of Thrones

Season four of Game of Thrones contained some major departures from the books — and some of them underscored just how much Bran and Arya Stark no longer want or expect to be rescued.

Here's How to Tell Your Co-Workers That They're Smelly, Annoying Asses

I work remotely but I still sometimes have altercations with my co-workers.

Your Giant American Refrigerator Is Making You Fat And Poor

There is a fair chance that if you're reading this post, your fridge—the most-used and largest appliance in your house—is screwing you. The refrigerator is as potent a symbol of American consumerist culture as you're likely to find, which is to say, it only makes sense if you don't really look at it very hard.

Mermaid School Is Real and Great For Your Health

The first time I realized that some people wanted to be mermaids is when I read a (probably deleted) Yahoo question that asked "How can I turn into a mermaid? Serious replies ONLY!" and included the fact that a water spell had not worked for the user. I hope she's reading this post, because now she (and you) can turn… » 7/29/14 9:40am Today 9:40am
