We love this flowchart poster that reminds us if we’re not happy, we can do something about it, and if we are, well, we can keep right on doing what we’re doing. It was created by designers Alex of Headup and David Meiklejohn. Alex calls the chart a “simple process for evaluating what may be the most important question one could ever want to answer.” Who thought something so complicated could be so easy? A poster and postcards will be available for sale soon. [via Julia Allison] Keep reading »
Oxytocin is sometimes called a natural love whereas oxycontin is a drug similar to morphine associated with the death of DJ AM.
Oxytocin is a hormone that plays a role in bonding, orgasms, trust, and maternal instincts. One way to activate the hormone is through love-making. Continue reading… Keep reading »
It often seems like the future is never coming. I mean where are our hover boards and why haven’t Dippin’ Dots caught on yet? But scientists are coming up with some super-futuristic solutions that will be improving our lives way sooner than you’d think. Within the next decade, we could all be skinny, telepathic, and have the ability to fly! OK, so I lied about the last one, but who needs to fly when we’ll be able to turn on the TV with our brains and lose weight from the comfort of our own couches? Keep reading »
We did something a li’l different this week at The Frisky— every day, five of our editors and bloggers took pictures of their outfits and posted them online for y’all to see! Did you see them all?
Luckily, our fab stylin’s brought some levity to a long, hard week, what with DJ AM passing away too soon and 29-year-old Jaycee Dugard discovered living with Phil Garrido, a total whackjob, 18 years after she was abducted. Keep reading »
In Denmark, a 30-year-old man was having a mole on his buttocks removed with an electrical knife when he farted during surgery. This ignited a spark, which caught onto his surgical spirit-soaked genitals and burned the poor guy! He said, “When I woke up, my penis and scrotum were burning like hell. Besides the pain, I can’t have sex with my wife.” He’s now suing the hospital for what they call an “unfortunate accident.” Farting in my sleep is one of my biggest plausible nightmares, but of all the scenarios that can take place post-flatulence, this one never even occurred to me.

You know how people who like to do pageants always say things like, “It’s not just about beauty. It’s about poise, speaking ability, and talent!” Well, that’s not exactly the case at the Miss Universe Pageant, which crowned Miss Venezuela last week. One of the show’s choreographers said shortly thereafter that, before the competition even begins, Donald Trump selects the top 15 contestants based on … looks. “At all the shows, [Trump] pops up the day before the telecast and we line up all the girls in alphabetical order,” Schwandt said. “[Trump] basically walks by and has an assistant who takes notes on all the girls. And it’s just kind of common knowledge that he picks six of the top 15 single-handedly. His reason for doing so, as he told me and he’s told the girls before, is that he left it all up to preliminary judging in the past, and some of the most beautiful women, in his opinion, were not in the top 15, and he was kind of upset about that.” [NY Post]
It seemed like a dirty little behind-the-scenes secret had been revealed. Only, now Trump is saying it’s not actually a secret. Keep reading »
