Ross Putman is a film producer with a few credits under his belt, and now he’s started a Twitter feed where he just tweets the initial descriptions of female main characters in the movie scripts he’s reading. It’s endlessly fascinating, and kind of garbage.
Young people, right? They like young-people shit, like YouTube videos, Instagram selfies and crazy hair. If you hate young people but want to pander to them for some reason—like, if you have loathsome, foul-smelling stepchildren—you can always take them to see Jem and the Holograms.
AIDS was a terrifying mystery, and then we solved it. When researchers identified the human immunodeficiency virus as the reason why young, previously healthy people were developing rare cancers and wasting away, it was a triumph of medical science.

When Boys Don’t Cry director Kimberly Peirce remade Carrie in 2013, everyone dismissed her version of the film as an unnecessary do-over. But Peirce had some ideas for how to make her version stand apart—including an awesomely weird ending, which freaked out studio executives who couldn’t even say the word “vagina.”
Thursday afternoon, GQ Magazine revealed photos from their latest issue featuring Trainwreck star Amy Schumer in joking, sexual situations with Star Wars characters like C-3PO and R2-D2. Friday, Lucasfilm responded and not in kind.
The omnipresent practice of denying girls action figures has somehow hit a new low. Remember how in the Jurassic World movie, most of the dinosaurs—especially Chris Pratt’s Raptor squad—were constantly referred to as girls? Well, as Jurassic World action figures, they’ve all been genderswapped into boys.
I have never seen an ad for a product that so completely sums up all the reasons why you would never, ever want to use it. The MissTravel app helps “attractive females” score free vacations from “generous males” who just want a first date. And this insanely creepy video is supposed to sell you on it.
There are plenty of lists about the “weirdest” Barbie dolls on the internet, but they only scratch the surface of the insane, sometimes terrifying world of the best-selling doll.

A recent survey conducted by the Oklahoma State University Department of Agricultural Economics found that 80.44% of respondents supported a government policy mandating labels on foods containing DNA.

Ray Fay gets dressed up in a pink boa and shiny pants and fed to Queen Kong, who falls in love with him. Then the giant ape fights a T-rex for the man she loves, in this completely bonkers clip from the movie Queen Kong. The best bit is where he teaches Queen Kong how to kick a dinosaur in the nuts.
Admit it. You know perfectly well what this is. You know exactly where it's going. And you're going to watch it, because you already know it's perfect.
It's that time of year again — the moment when we all realize we didn't get a Halloween costume yet. And luckily, a whole industry exists to sell us ready-made versions of popular characters. Here are the weirdest, (allegedly) sexiest and most random new costumes for sale in 2014!
A study at USC sponsored by IBM will study "Black Twitter," trying to figure out what it means for people to form "neighborhoods" online. But has this study become a form of racial profiling, rather than just a sociological investigation?
It was a battle that raged for nearly a half-hour. A 56-year-old Indian woman — armed with only farm tools — is now recovering in hospital after killing a leopard that attacked her.
Oh, Marvel. Come on. You know better than this —this being Milo Manara's cover for the upcoming Spider-Woman #1. If you're wondering what the hell Jessica Drew, a.k.a. Spider-Woman is doing, I believe it's what's known in the animal kingdom as "presenting."
For over 20 years, the state of Indiana hoarded the blood of newborns without their parents' consent.
