A Brazilian Metro Train Passenger Got His Dong Stuck In The Closing Doors

OH GOD OUCH OW OW NO NO NO

File this under NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! A guy riding on São Paolo’s Metro train got his boner stuck in the doors when they closed. Watching the video, I was trying to see if the guy was making any motions of distress — it doesn’t look like it, but then again, he didn’t have much space to move (or else perhaps his boner wouldn’t have gotten stuck in the doors). Considering the urgency with which the Good Samaritan ran to the doors (instead of standing there filming it like a chucklehead), I’m going to bet the passenger was looking more than a little freaked out.

All hail the Good Samaritan boner rescuer! Oh, this poor guy. I hope he and his boner are OK. [Death and Taxes]

This Is Why You’re Afraid Of Ebola (Despite The Fact That You’re Not Going To Get Infected)

Even though the chances that you’re going to get Ebola in the United States are extremely, extremely low, it is all the hell over my news feed and it’s been making me freak out. I know I’m not the only one. I’ve been trying to avoid reading about it because I’m afraid that it’ll make me even more worried, but at this point just reading the headlines and noting their frequency and their tone of urgency is probably worse than actually engaging with literature on it.

It’s all well and good to say “You’re not going to get Ebola!” But I think what’s even more helpful is understanding what’s going on in your head that makes you think you are going to get Ebola, or might get it, despite all the evidence. Understanding your brain’s wackiness might be just as valuable as understanding the disease. Dr. Graham Davey at Psychology Today explains that these are five of the ways that your psychology might be disposing you to worry more than you need to about Ebola: Keep reading »

Facebook Is Still Deactivating Drag Queens’ Facebook Accounts

Even though Facebook apologized for deactivating drag queens’ accounts after realizing that one person had been on a personal crusade to troll the queens, the site is still continuing to suspend the accounts. Facebook’s Chief Products Officer Chris Cox noted in his apology that the legal-name policy was intended to increase accountability for people who were trolling other Facebook users, which is a nice idea that has ultimately come with more than a little bit of irony.

Facebook is providing measures by which the drag queens can get their accounts reinstated, but it requires them to tell Facebook why their accounts were suspended and why their drag names are, in fact, their authentic names. It’s a lot of trouble to go through for people who haven’t violated Facebook’s policies. Keep reading »
