I Don’t Like The Looks Of This “Cute” New Olinguito Species

I’m all for cute animals. But something about this new species, dubbed the Olinguito, and discovered in Ecuador and Colombia, is suspect. Maybe it’s his beady little eyes, or his old lady hands, but the Olinguito looks like he’s up to no good.

Forever 21 Cuts Full Time Employees To Avoid Paying Health Care Costs

Forever 21, you just keep getting better and better. In between lowering your prices to make them more “guilt-free” (with little thought, of course, to the workers who actually make the products), and getting in trouble for sweatshop-like labor conditions, you’ve now gone and fucked over the people who work in your stores.
