Unlikely Style Inspiration: Prince William’s Wedding Outfit

Speculation about Kate Middleton’s wedding dress has sent the world into a frenzy. Who will design it? What’s the price tag? Does it look like Diana’s? Will the train be 10 feet or 10,000? Speculating about William’s outfit has proved slightly less exciting. Since he is expected to wear his Royal Air Force uniform, there’s only one question, really: will his jacket be red or blue?

But hey, whatever the color, military jackets are always in style. After the jump, a selection of William-inspired options that would look just as cute with jeans and a tank top as they would at the royal wedding. Keep reading »

Bank Robbers Caught After Bragging On Facebook

When two robbers held up the two tellers working at a small bank in Houston in late March, wearing masks from the dollar store and brandishing toy guns, it looked pretty normal — for a robbery — on the security cameras. The robbers made off with $62K in loot in total. Two days later, one of the tellers—Estefany Martinez—posted on her Facebook page “IM RICH BITCH.” Shortly after, her boyfriend Ricky Gonzalez changed his status to, “WIPE MY TEETH WITH HUNDEREDS.” That lead police to believe the two might have teamed up for the heist. Authorities have now charged Estefany and her teller friend Anna Margarita Rivera with orchestrating a plot to have Estefany’s boyfriend and Anna’s brother faux rob them up, then split the cash four ways.

Elton John Has Surrogate’s Breast Milk Shipped To Him

“We have the breast milk Fed-Exed from where she is. We have one nanny and we’re very hands-on. We change him, we bathe him, we feed him and we read him a story every night… The worst thing you can do to a child, and I’ve seen it happen so many times, is the silver spoon. Being the child of a famous person is very difficult, and we’re very well aware of the pitfalls of that.”

Elton John explains that, besides growing up in a household with an outrageous number of sequined platform shoes, baby Zachary is leading a relatively normal life. That said, having breast milk shipped in from his surrogate mom is a little unusual. Doesn’t it need to be refrigerated? [People] Keep reading »

Michigan Bill Would Require Doctors Offer “Keepsake Ultrasounds” To Women Seeking Abortions

There’s a now famous spoof from The Onion News Network about a fake Arkansas law that would require women to pick a baby name and paint her nursery pink or blue before having an abortion. Well, Michigan is marching towards making that spoof a reality: a Republican state senator has proposed a bill that would require doctors performing an abortion to do an ultrasound, offer to describe the fetus’ current stage of development, offer an opportunity to listen to any detectable heartbeat, and offer a hard copy of the ultrasound image. (“Keepsake ultrasound” is the macabre, but fitting, moniker of the Michigan Messenger newspaper.)

A woman can refuse any of these intentionally heart-tugging actions, but she would still have to sign a statement acknowledging these offers had been made. Keep reading »

We Have Not Been Pooping Properly

An article in the Daily Mail reveals all of the things we’ve been doing wrong and didn’t even know it. For example: showering every day, rinsing after brushing our teeth, sleeping too many hours, and not breathing deeply enough. My favorite “daily sin,” however, is our poor pooping form. A new study showed that squatting is more effective than sitting on the toilet and causes less strain on our bowels. This problem can be easily rectum-fied, I mean … rectified. Scientists suggest that “placing a six-inch footrest under your feet and leaning forward on a regular sitting toilet may help, and this effect could be achieved to a lesser extent with toilet rolls placed under the feet. Raising the feet in this way on a regular basis may well result in shorter visits to the loo and less straining.” Duly noted. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
