Cleaning up your cat’s daily hairball attack aftermath got you down? Be grateful you’re not the vet who had to remove a terrifying 4 lb. hair ball from this handsome tiger’s stomach. After his handlers noticed that he wasn’t eating, they performed surgery to remove the basketball-shaped object, and the little dude is doing just fine now. You have to see this to believe it. Check out a pic of the hairball after the jump … if you dare. (Metro UK) Keep reading »

Do you love yourself? How much? Enough to have a lifesized 3-D printed doll made of yourself? Because you can do that now. A place aptly named the Clone Factory, in Tokyo, Japan, says it can make a doll from any human. Are you having nightmares yet?
Being an egomaniac does not come cheap, though. To have a doll made with your creepy likeness, it’ll cost around $2,000 (it sounds worse when you hear that equals 138,000 yen). Obviously, though, money is no object when it comes to you loving … yourself. Keep reading »

The only thing more awkward than having strangers make out on top of you is being the only one in a group not kissing someone. Maybe we’re just faster with our cameras these days, but thanks to sites like Reddit, we’ve noticed people (and animals are capturing their third wheel, fifth wheel — even ninth wheel situations more than ever.
Sure, it’s strange to be the only one not paired off in a group, but how do you react to rolling solo? From the angry third wheel to the fifth wheel who embraces her singlehood, we count down our favorites. Read more on Your Tango…
Lovely reader Elise left the following question on our Facebook page:
Would it be possible to do a slideshow on shorts-at-work? So many of the shorts styles are too revealing to work, wearing jeans all the time is way hot, and wearing skirts all the time is way too girly for my .com office! Frisky to the fashion rescue?
Of course we’d be happy to help! Shorts at work can be a tricky proposition… Keep reading »

We were thrilled to report a mostly happy ending to the story that was high school studentKiera Wilmot being expelled and arrested for attempting a science experiment on school grounds. No formal charges were brought against the student and she and her sister will get a free ride to space camp soon, but to hear Wilmot tell the story in her own words brings the frightening reality of what almost happened back to life.
Wilmot wrote a full account of what happened for the American Civil Liberties Union and as a kid who rarely got in trouble at school, it brought back memories of how bad it actually felt when I did. Only, I don’t think I could ever imagine what it would be like being handcuffed at school for doing a science project.

Embarking on a Memorial Day road trip this weekend? All those sweaty passengers and pungent snack foods make for a fun journey, but they can also leave your car smelling … not so fresh. Instead of buying a new air freshener, try making your own eco-friendly version using wool felt and essential oils. You can customize the scent and shape to your liking, and when it loses its potency, it’s totally reusable — just add more oil! [Crafting A Green World]
