Infographic: What A 16 Pound Baby Looks Like, In Other Stuff

This week, a woman in Texas gave birth to a terrifyingly large 16.1 lb. baby named JaMichael Brown. JaMichael’s way-larger-than-average size is being attributed in large part to his mother’s gestational diabetes which causes her to produce extra insulin. “Although insulin does not cross the placenta, glucose and other nutrients do. So extra blood glucose goes through the placenta, giving the baby high blood glucose levels,” explained the American Diabetes Association. “This causes the baby’s pancreas to make extra insulin to get rid of the blood glucose. Since the baby is getting more energy than it needs to grow and develop, the extra energy is stored as fat.” And JaMichael was delivered — thankfully via C-section so your vag can quit with the sympathy pains — a week early, even. Whoa. We weren’t sure we could fully fathom what a 16.1 lb. baby was really all about, so we decided to create this helpful chart of items that weigh just as much as JaMichael does. Keep reading »

Should Mila Kunis Go Out With This Marine?


When we heard that Sergeant Scott Moore had asked Mila Kunis to attend the Marine Corps. Ball with him this November in North Carolina, we imagined a cute, heartwarming entreaty, in which Moore professes his love and tells Mila how much it would mean to him and the troops. But no, this guy pooped out a sort of cocky 20-second missive that was like, bah-da-bing, let’s do this. And then Fox News told Mila about it over the weekend and she kind of agreed to go with him. Sure, we support our troops, but come on guy, Mila Kunis is one of the most beautiful women in the world. She’s friggin’ Black Swan! Try a little harder! Perhaps some singing and dancing? A little romancing? What do you think? Should Mila take him up on his offer? Keep reading »

On Hating Brenda


So many things to say about this 1993 MTV News report on Shannen Doherty and the phenomenon of the “I Hate Brenda Newsletter,” a little zine published about how much “Beverly Hills, 90210″‘s Brenda Walsh and Doherty sucked. For one, Shannen Doherty wanted to start a grunge band called Uncle Velvet? Why is John Corbett there? Also, I love one dude’s assertion that Shannen Doherty is growing her bangs out because she’s simply too lazy to pluck her eyebrows. So much vitriol! But I mean, really, Brenda kind of was the worst.

It’s not that I don’t think Kate’s a gorgeous girl with Pantene model hair — she’s clearly stunning and blah blah blah, the picture of English Rose beauty. But really, there is nothing particularly noteworthy about the clothes that she throws on. Keep reading »
