Religious fanaticism is just scary. Julia Lovemore and her husband are both Christian fundamentalists with mental health issues. And I’m legitimately heartbroken to hear that Julia killed her six-week-old baby, Faith Lovemore, by stuffing Bible pages in her mouth and then smothering her a year ago.

You’re backpacking through Europe, snapping photo after photo of historical landmarks and luscious scenery, when suddenly you realize: all of your pictures look the same. You’re sick of standing awkwardly in front of museums. Why don’t you just lie down? Click. The latest travel trend is the Lying Down Game (LDG).

Just keep your mouth closed — the ground is dirty. [Lying Down Game] Keep reading »
