How on earth did we even try to understand the differences between the genders before Google Instant? Everything we could ever want to know about men vs. women can be illuminated by autocomplete. (For the record, Google, I also need to urinate. Too much Diet Coke today.) [via I Love Charts] Keep reading »
While the customized movement in fashion makes us think we’re getting something special and personalized, too often it leaves us wanting more (we guess you could call that entitlement). For those who like things “just so,” there’s now Urban Outfitters‘ new custom makeup color mail-in program, which is just as awesome as it sounds. Looking for a lipstick to match your favorite dress? A gloss in the same shade as that sunset you snapped outside your window? A hue (that no one makes) to complement your go-to nail polish? Keep reading »
My favorite costume inspirations are always the pop culture icons from the last year: Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, and Sarah Palin have been some of the more popular costumes over the last few years. But in 2010, there have been three women who really stick out in my mind as ideal for costume-makin’.

Yes, panties! “I just got done welcoming Sarah Palin to our county. Had a nice chat and gave her a pair of pink underwear,” he tweeted from @RealSheriffJoe on Friday night. Creepy! His schtick is to force prisoners to wear pink clothing, including underwear, to humiliate them. It’s hard to say if he was getting fresh with Sarah, suggesting something kinky, or just being sexist and inappropriate. Do male politicians get pink panties as gifts from Sheriff Joe, too? Didn’t think so. [Gawker, Twitter] Keep reading »
You’ve worked hard through grad school, but when you’re ready to graduate there are NO jobs in your field. Should you get a refund on your school tuition? It’s a radical thought, but that’s what one student at Boston College is proposing. The anonymous student wrote a letter to the dean of Boston College Law School, where he is a third-year law student, and lamented that despite doing well in school he’s been unable to secure a position. In the letter, the student outlined the difficulties he and his fellow classmates were having finding a job, and added that his failure to land a gig will make it difficult to support his pregnant wife.
