Blue Ivy Goes To The Beach And Jay-Z Wants More Kids

As made clear by this photo of Blue Ivy and Beyoncé at the beach, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s first crack at procreation turned out really adorable. Now 18 months old, Blue Ivy has been making more and more appearances, the best of which are showing up on Beyoncé’s official Tumblr. In a recent interview on Hot 97, DJ Angie Martinez asked Jay-Z if he would like to have more kids. His response? “Absolutely, God willing.” Jay-Z also recently founded a new sports agency, Roc Nation Sports, and he went on to joke that he wants to make his own “little basketball team” with Queen Bey. Sounds awesome, as long as he turns out to be a better parent-turned-agent than Kris Jenner. [Us Weekly]

Is Barbie On The Decline?

Mattel’s Barbie doll has long embodied all that is wrong with society’s expectations of women and the female body. But there’s good news, sort of: the impossibly shaped, blonde doll’s popularity appears to finally be waning. Mattel has reported a 23 percent drop in sales and sales have declined for the fourth quarter in a row. To be fair, toy sales the U.S. and Europe have not been faring particularly well this year in general, and Mattel is doing relatively well compared to other large toy companies. But this is no thanks to Barbie — most of their sales come from the American Girl Dolls and Monster High Dolls. Keep reading »

The Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill received royal assent this morning, thus legalizing gay marriage in both England and Wales. Royal assent in the United Kingdom takes place after both the House of Lords and the House of Commons have passed a bill. The Queen then agrees to make the bill an Act of Parliament, or law. Although royal assent is technically a formality these days, celebration is still in order! Keep reading »

In what was potentially an all time low for Walmart shoppers, one man decided that the best way to tell a woman that she was attractive was to throw bodily fluids at her. A Delaware police report obtained by The Smoking Gun states that Frank J. Short first walked past the victim and said, “Excuse me.” The 20-year-old victim “suddenly felt something wet on her buttocks, thigh, and leg.” At first she figured he had sneezed or coughed on her, but she soon found a “gooey glob” of something below her knee. This is what led her to believe that the fluid may have been semen. Ewww, please, no. Keep reading »

A post office in Alabama was evacuated last week after a suspicious substance began leaking out of a package onto 12 to 15 other packages. After coming into contact with the liquid, two people were hospitalized as a precaution, CBS Atlanta reported. It caused a burning sensation on the skin and people were worried that the substance could be harmful in some way.

As it turns out, however, skin is exactly where this substance is meant to go. The liquid that leaked out of the package was actually KY Intense Arousal Gel. Keep reading »

I, like many people do, figure that while online shopping, companies track the things I look at, how long I look at them, and whether or not I buy them. This is, of course, then reflected in the advertisements that I will later see on other websites. Although slightly unnerving, tech-savvy consumers have come to expect this and generally aren’t perturbed by it. However, when similar tactics go on in brick-and-mortar stores, some people are not nearly as comfortable. Keep reading »

It’s snake season in Israel, apparently, and those slithering menaces are everywhere. And yes, everywhere does include toilets. A 35-year-old man in Northern Israel was just going to the bathroom, minding his own business, when a small snake popped out of the toilet he was sitting on and bit him square on the penis.

Although this is literally the last place a man wants to be bitten by anything, let alone a snake, he can at least be grateful that the snake was not venomous. The man is currently doing very well, but he will most likely have bite marks on the area in question. Keep reading »

Andrei Kirilenko is the newest addition to the Brooklyn Nets, a team that has spent the off-season stacking itself with new and promising players. Kirilenko left the Minnesota Timberwolves for the Nets, but will experience a steep pay cut from $10 million last year to $3.18 million a year, New York magazine reported. Unfortunately, Kirilenko left the Timberwolves before he realized that nobody would give him a better offer. All of this is well and good, but the really interesting thing about Kirilenko has less to do with his yearly pay or which team he’s playing for and more to do with his relationship with his wife.

Boobs are great for a lot of things. But as anyone who has at least average-sized breasts has probably noticed, sports are not one of those things. Breasts pose a problem for athletes for several reasons. First, they are extra weight to slow down competitors. Boobs can get in the way of a golf, tennis, or volleyball swing. They also bounce and accelerate at a different speed from the rest of the body. This bouncing is not only painful, but can also be embarrassing, especially for girls going through puberty. That’s probably one reason why there is such a decline in female athletic participation from the beginning of middle school to the end of high school.

Take ESPN’s tale: Katherine Switzer became the first woman to compete in the Boston Marathon in 1967 when the sports bra had yet to be invented. She was warned that the repetitive motion could cause her breasts to atrophy and her uterus to fall out of her vagina. Yikes! Obviously, this was a pile of crap. Neither of these things happened, but she was certainly uncomfortable running in just a standard fashion bra under a T-shirt. Nearly 50 years later, we have yet to perfect the sports bra so that women with larger cup sizes can compete in the sports that they love without complication.
