It’s Potty Training Time At The Sloth Orphanage

Sloths! We love them. This short video was shot at Costa Rica’s Aviarios del Caribe sanctuary for orphaned sloths. If you’ve oftentimes found yourself gazing absentmindedly into the distance and wondering, How do sloths go to the bathroom?, today is your lucky day.

Amazon Finally Bans “The Pedophile’s Guide To Love And Pleasure”

What kind of crack was Amazon smoking when the retailer decided it was OK to sell the book The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child Lover’s Code of Conduct?

Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.” After internet-wide protest and the popular Twitter trending topic #BoycottAmazon, Amazon has removed the title from its website.

Greaves II is investigated for his crimes? [MSNBC] Keep reading »
