Babies are so lazy. They lie back in their strollers and get pushed around everywhere. They’re given everything they want just by screaming and crying. They’ve even got people wiping their butts. Babies just got even more obnoxious: that is, the babies with their very own hot tub. A bath and shower company has launched the $2,185 BluBleu hot tub for very fancy babies.

We’re certain these babies will land themselves in actual therapy when they outgrow this miniature hot tub in 12 months. [The Week]

My strongest opinion when it comes to dating — which has become the subject of many an impassioned Frisky office debate — is the ideal location for a first date. I’ve noticed that lots of guys have the best intentions when it comes to picking a first date spot but oftentimes fail. Maybe this is not a problem for people who live in the ‘burbs or small cities; perhaps there is a “town center” where all the restaurants and bars are located. But in larger cities with complicated public transit systems — Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, D.C., my home turf of New York City — a lady could end up traveling an hour-plus getting to a date. And then have to sell her firstborn child to pay for it.
So I thought I’d offer a few thoughts — for dudes and girls alike, it’s 2012 people! — on how to pick a place for a first date. Keep reading »
