When it comes time for me to clean my apartment, I have no patience, no desire and no idea where to start. I usually get as far as taking out a spray bottle of disinfectant and cleaning around the various piles of clutter that have accumulated, before becoming overwhelmed and sitting down for a snack, never to finish my task. When I recently found myself in this exact scenario, I turned the TV on during my snack break and started watching “Friends.” It was The One With The Chicken Pox, and Monica was obsessing over the way her boyfriend Richard made the bed. In life, we can all take some notes from Monica’s OCD ways when it comes to tidying up, because wouldn’t life just be nicer when our toilet paper is folded at the tip? Here are 14 of Monica’s anal retentive rules to remember next time you need to clean. Keep reading »
One of the new record holders set to appear in the 2015 edition of the “Guinness Book of Records” is Alley the flying cat, who jumps farther than any other kitty on the planet. Alley was rescued in Chicago by Samantha Martin, a trainer for the traveling cat circus Acro-cats (how did I not know that training cats for the circus is a career path!?). Alley was adopted after she was found in looking weak in — surprise — a city alley with three other cats, and Martin began to train her when she showed a love for jumping. In a true (feline) rags-to-riches tale, Alley has learned to leap a whole 6 feet, and now holds the honor of being included under the book’s Longest Cat Jump title. Watch Alley’s amazing skills!

Wealthy White Guys Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity demonstrated their ongoing obliviousness this week by completely ignoring everything that matters about issues like rape and child abuse, throwing out incredibly dumb red herrings on the issues instead.
First, Limbaugh asserted on his radio show that “no means yes if you know how to spot it” and lamented that “that used to be part of the advice boys were given” — that “no” means “yes,” that is. Oh, woe is me, Rush Limbaugh. It’s so terrible that boys aren’t being told to make women’s minds up for them as far as consent goes (or in other words, you know, rape women). This was in response to Ohio State’s enthusiastic consent policy, which requires explicit verbal consent at every step of a sexual interaction, a policy which, by the way, benefits all students at Ohio State, not just female students. Lord knows, the really important thing about America’s campus rape epidemic isn’t, you know, the fact that there are so many victims of rape, or the fact that campus rape investigations get fucked up so often — partially because universities’ policies on rape are vague, a problem which this policy seeks to solve — but the potential loss of the “art of seduction.” GAG.
