These “Ultra-Distressed” Sneakers Cost $2,000 (Yes, Really)

Remember when Converse started selling pre-scuffed sneakers for $65 and I thought it was the dumbest thing ever? I take it back. I take it all back. Go buy all the dirty Converse you want. They’re a great deal compared to these stained, rusted, worn-out (but technically still “new”) sneakers from Italian brand A Diciannoveventitre that will cost you a whopping $1,975. In related news, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. [Barneys]

OK, so no bee horror story can ever compare to the guy who had sex with a hornets’ nest and died, but this one might qualify as a distant runner-up. A couple in Utah recently bought a house, and every once in awhile thought they heard the sound of bees buzzing while they were eating dinner or watching TV. Last weekend, the couple finally had an “It’s coming from inside the house!” moment and called a bee keeper to come check it out. He cut a hole in the wall of their master bedroom and found a gigantic beehive housing an estimated 60,000 to 80,000 bees. Apparently the bees had actually been removing insulation from the wall to make room for their ever expanding hive (clever little freeloaders, aren’t they?). The bees and their hive were safely relocated, and as long as everyone avoids having sex with it, this scary story will have a happy ending. [Huffpo]

Ziploc Jacket Lets You Wear Your Lunch And Eat It Too

It’s 10AM and your stomach is growling. You could rifle through your traditional paper lunch bag to sneak a bite of your sandwich, or, if you’re wearing this ingenious Ziploc jacket, you could just unzip the pocket under your armpit. Want some chips? No worries, they’re conveniently stored below your boob.  Apparently the brilliant designer of this stylish snackovation is known only as Diana (her friend posted the photo to Tumblr), but I’m pretty confident we’ll get to know her better when she inevitably shows up on “Project Runway” (or perhaps a spinoff called “Project Lunchway”?). Til then, I’ll be in the kitchen with a glue gun trying to make a knockoff version of this awesome jacket. [Grist]

Relationship tips

My boyfriend Nick and I recently made a new relationship rule: as soon as either of us feels any inkling of a bad mood coming on, we tell each other ASAP. Just a quick heads up, like, “Hey, I’m feeling a little irritable right now.” Announcing your bad mood before it causes a problem lets your partner know they shouldn’t take any crankiness personally, and forces you to be accountable for your own emotions. This is such a quick, easy thing to do, but it has worked wonders for our relationship. The success of the Bad Mood Rule inspired me to compile a list of other quick, easy tips that just might save your relationship. Read on for 10 more ideas from The Frisky ladies and me, and please feel free to add your own tips in the comments! Keep reading »
