Grad Student Offers Laptop Thief $1000 To Return Thesis

A fifth year year grad student at Rutgers University recently had their laptop stolen, which is an incredibly frustrating experience in the best of circumstances, but becomes a living nightmare when that stolen laptop contains the only copy of your thesis (just thinking about this is giving me sympathy hives!). If nothing else, this sign serves as an excellent reminder to back up your important files — preferably in 10 different places, five of which are kept under 24-hour armed guard. In the meantime, let’s hope this grad student’s offer is one the laptop thief can’t refuse. [Neatorama]

My favorite thing about traveling is that it always changes me. Whether I’m taking a road trip to a neighboring state or exploring Europe for a month, I never come back home the same person I was when I left. Traveling changes your perspective, it changes the way you see yourself, and it changes the way you see the world. In honor of Wanderlust 2013, I thought I’d look back at a few of the travel experiences that have had the biggest impact on my life. Please feel free to share you own travel experiences in the comments! Keep reading »

Teenage Boys Rejoice: NASA Drew A Penis On Mars

It’s hard out there for a Mars rover. Day after day, these dutiful little robots drive around the barren surface of the red planet collecting data to send back to their bosses relaxing at the warm, cozy NASA offices 40 million miles away. Do you really blame one of them for getting a bit, umm, creative with the shape of its tire marks? [Reddit via Huffpo]

"You have that thing called...the orgasm."

I’ve always been a huge Diane Keaton fan, and her recent appearance on “Ellen,” during which she gulped down wine and giggled her way through topics as diverse as tantric sex (“For nine hours! That’s ridiculous!”), punching Robert De Niro in the face (“That was fun!”) and why she never got married (“What happened was … nobody ever asked me.”). The interview is a little confusing, but it’s also totally endearing. And for the record, Diane, I would marry you in a hot minute. [Huffington Post]

Reality Show Offers Participants A One-Way Ticket To Mars (Yes, Really)

Most reality shows can only offer their participants free booze and a fleeting chance at fame, but a new reality show called “Mars One” is upping the ante in a big, big way: they’re offering their cast a one-way ticket to Mars. Yes, really. A Dutch company is now accepting applications for aspiring astronauts/reality TV stars. The plan is for the first group of humans to depart for their new home planet in 2023, with subsequent crews joining them every two years (the journey from Earth to Mars takes seven months). Colonizing the red planet will cost an estimated $6 billion, which is where the reality show angle comes in.

According to Mars One CEO Bas Lansdorp, “Mars One intends to maintain an ongoing, global media event, from astronaut selection to training, from liftoff to landing…If humans land on Mars, everyone will want to watch. It will be bigger than the Olympic Games.” Potential participants need to keep in mind that the show might turn out to be more like “The Hunger Games” than “Mars-y Shore”: “There will be emergencies and deaths,” Lansdorp said. “We need to make sure that crew members can continue without those people.” Eesh.

This adorable little rhino is named Anna. She was born just one week ago at the Lion Country Safari in Florida, and had no idea how to properly wallow in the mud until her mom showed her. Luckily for us, the whole thing was caught on camera. And it is adorable. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

The official caption on this photo is “Julianne Hough stops to purchase some gum at a gas station on Sunset Blvd,” and although it’s pretty obvious she’s either going to or coming from a fancier event, I prefer to think that this is the outfit she wore specifically to go out and buy some gum. It may be a bit formal for a gas station, but I’m loving the all-white ensemble and funky accessories (those shoes are seriously fierce). I’ve gotta step up my gas station fashion game.

Dear Guy Who Was Arrested For Driving Around With 53 King Cobras In His Car,

No woman can resist a guy who lives a rock n’ roll lifestyle. In fact, I’ve previously written a love letter to a guy who was so obsessed with heavy metal that he was forced to quit his job and receive disability benefits. I thought that dude was hardcore, but daaaaaamn, your badass ways make him seem like a fluffy, cuddly kitten in comparison: you were recently arrested in Vietnam for driving around with 53 king cobras in your car. I’m terrified by this story. And also intrigued. Let’s grab a bite to eat and talk about your rock n’ roll lifestyle. We’ll take my car.

Xoxo,
Winona
