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 »

Man Farts During Surgery And Sets His Junk On Fire

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.

Donald Trump Really Does Play God At Miss Universe

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 »
