Guess That Fan Fiction, Win Nerd Respect!

My best friend once made the mistake of telling me that she had written “Buffy” fan fiction when she was younger and I mercilessly teased her for years, even though it was that nerdy center that endeared her to me in the first place. Some of you may not be familiar with the steamy underground world of fan fiction where devoted fans think up (often sexy) scenarios for their favorite characters. For fun, we’ve rounded up six fanfic excerpts and taken out the nouns so you can guess which show/book/movie they are based on. Guess all six correctly and win … dork credibility? Keep reading »

Bite-Sized Food On A Stick Is My New Diet

Second only to my love of food on a stick is food that is bite-sized. I love going to a party and noshing on little morsels of yumminess, especially if the yumminess is piled on some sort of flat vessel or stuffed inside something. So seriously, these little pie lollipops are making me absolutely ravenous right now. Find out how to make them for dessert at your Labor Day barbecue here. [via NotCot] Keep reading »

The Future Is Here: Doctors Allow Us To Telepathically Control Electronics, Get Skinny Sans Effort

It often seems like the future is never coming. I mean where are our hover boards and why haven’t Dippin’ Dots caught on yet? But scientists are coming up with some super-futuristic solutions that will be improving our lives way sooner than you’d think. Within the next decade, we could all be skinny, telepathic, and have the ability to fly! OK, so I lied about the last one, but who needs to fly when we’ll be able to turn on the TV with our brains and lose weight from the comfort of our own couches? Keep reading »

Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo, And Other Stars Who Sneak Around To Avoid The Paps

It looks like Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo may be back together after breaking up in June. The two have been spotted several times in the past week sneaking around, close-talking, holding hands, and making out. A witness said, “You could tell they were together. It was more in how serious they looked at each other that told you that they were more than just friends.” Wouldn’t it be funny if they never actually broke up at all and this was just a sham to get the tabloids, aka celebrity-relationship kryptonite, off their backs? [Ace Showbiz]

Though we’re totally sensitive to the plight of couples who have to keep it together under the glare of flashbulbs, they have to accept that their love lives must be carefully orchestrated for our maximum entertainment. So we’re outing the other couples who snuck around post break-up to catch a paparazzi breather. Cads.

Man Farts During Surgery And Sets His Junk On Fire

In Denmark, a 30-year-old man was having a mole on his buttocks removed with an electrical knife when he farted during surgery. This ignited a spark, which caught onto his surgical spirit-soaked genitals and burned the poor guy! He said, “When I woke up, my penis and scrotum were burning like hell. Besides the pain, I can’t have sex with my wife.” He’s now suing the hospital for what they call an “unfortunate accident.” Farting in my sleep is one of my biggest plausible nightmares, but of all the scenarios that can take place post-flatulence, this one never even occurred to me.

Trailer Park: “All About Steve,” “Extract,” “Amreeka”

It’s Labor Day weekend! Hallelujah! Time to wear all your white clothing simultaneously, light up the barbecue, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. And because it’s a three-day weekend, you have a whole extra day to go to the movies! It may be a good opportunity to acknowledge “Amreeka” or “Extract” some fun out of your life. But it’s not necessarily “All About Steve,” cause, as far as I’m concerned, that guy’s lame. OK, I’ll stop. Keep reading »

What If You Had To Ask 4 Million People For Permission To Get Married?

This ad in support of marriage equality is one of the most subtle and effective messages I’ve seen. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s possible for bigots to see the logic. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Young French Women Are Disappearing As Their Families Force Them Into Marriages

Most summer vacations for teenage girls involve getting a job at the local Dairy Queen or tempting skin cancer at the beach. But in France, hundreds of girls disappear each summer when they are sent abroad and forced into marriages with men they’ve never met. Most of the victims are Muslim and of Asian, African, or Middle Eastern descent, so the government has generally considered it a cultural or religious issue. But since other European countries like England have governmental units that track down women who are forced into marriages in their countries of origin, we’re happy that France is just starting to keep up with the times. The French school system is working to set up an alert system for these girls who never return to school in the fall and last year they published a guide to help officials suss out forced marriages. The government is even making efforts to protect girls who want to annul their marriages. [Reuters] Keep reading »
