Here’s A Map Of The World’s Internet Cats

Internet Cat Map
They Know Your Cat's Address

Owen Mundy, who teaches at Florida State University, published an amazing project called “I Know Where Your Cat Lives,” that digitally maps 1 million of the roughly 15 million cat pictures on public image hosting sites using data that the cats’ humans made available. Users can browse the map for cute kitty photos all over the world, which is a whole lot of fun until it sinks in that we (and thus, countless potential creepers) really can pinpoint exactly where all of these cats and their families live. To put the project together, Mundy searched for images with a “cat” tag on them, ran the photos through algorithms, and located the cats through the latitude and longitude coordinates embedded in the photos’ data. The project makes a pretty scary statement about how much information we share about ourselves online without thinking twice. I would say that this encouraged me to stop posting cat pictures to keep my privacy a little safer, but let’s be honest, I’ll probably never stop. If you want to keep the kitty creepiness going, the map has a Kickstarter page to help raise funds to keep up with costs. [The Atlantic]

Frisky Rant: The Real Problem With Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Cover Art & Her “Black Jezebel” Brand

Frisky Rant: The Real Problem With Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" Cover Art & Her "Black Jezebel" Brand

Last week, Nicki Minaj released the artwork for her new single “Anaconda,” featuring the rapper in a squat position with her large posterior aimed directly at viewers. The image was met with mostly support from fans and critics but some questioned if the image was “too racy.” In response to those criticisms, Minaj tweeted several Sports Illustrated photos with White swimsuit models in similar poses and the message “angelic” and “acceptable,” hinting at society’s racial bias that does not treat Black bodies with the same respect as White ones — a statement that was met with more controversy.

A Queen Elizabeth Photobomb Makes This The Best Selfie Ever

Queen Elizabeth Selfie

Two Australian hockey players captured one of the better selfies in Instagram history when Queen Elizabeth peeked into the shot behind them. The queen paid a surprise visit to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday to see a Wales-England hockey match. She arrived early, just as the Australian match was coming to an end, so she hung out and chatted with the Australian players. Players Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris tried to time their selfie so that the camera would snap just as the queen was walking behind them. The ladies imply that the queen just happened to be smiling in their direction, but I think she was totally trying to get into that shot. Her green outfit even matches theirs!

Page Six Claims Solange Knowles Attacked Jay-Z Over Rihanna

  • Page Six has a big splashy story on Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “crumbling” marriage, which claims the couple blew off Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding because it was too gauche for their highnesses. “[Jay and Bey] are guarding like hell their status,” said Page Six’s source. “Beyoncé wasn’t going to allow a Kardashian to socially climb her. And Jay didn’t want Kanye with Kim — he thinks it’s bad for business. I think Jay lost a little respect for Kanye there.” (Kanye doesn’t give a shit.) The gossip column also claims that Bey’s sister Solange Knowles assaulted Jay in an elevator after the Met Ball because over suspicions he’s sleeping with Rihanna. [Page Six] Keep reading »

Watch The Season 5 Trailer For “The Walking Dead”

Run, Rick, Run!

Considering it’s a post-apocalyptic show about a world overrun by zombies, it’s quite telling that the producers behind “The Walking Dead” say that season five is going to be “much darker.” The cast and crew debuted the upcoming season’s trailer at San Diego Comic-Con — as well as a premiere date of October 12 — saying that the first episode picks up right where season four left off, with the newly reunited group of survivors (minus Carol and Tyreese) facing a possible new enemy at Terminus. Are they cannibals, as has been implied? I guess we’ll have to watch to find out…

Beauty Test Drive: HydroPeptide Soothing Serum Vs. Egg Whites For Sun-Soaked Skin

Beauty Test Drive: HydroPepyide Soothing Serum VS Egg Whites For Sun Soaked Skin

Have you ever noticed that when you overdo it in the sun, your skin becomes crazy sensitive? Some of your regular lotions feel like rubbing alcohol or make you feel like you’ve been standing over a deep fryer? My mom swears by egg whites. She will chase you down with raw egg and insist on slathering it all over your face, claiming it will prevent wrinkles. It feels soothing at first, but then it dries into a tight Botox-y mask. Gag. I was sent HydroPeptide soothing serum and I have to admit, it is a delightful, if pricey alternative to putting stinky eggs on your face. Keep reading »
