Nope, not weight training … waist training. Kim Kardashian posted the above Instagram selfie which shows her wearing a contraption similar to a corset but expressly for the purpose of narrowing the waist permanently. It seems Kim doesn’t think her figure is hourglass enough, so she’s going to extreme measures to get results. I find this depressing, but more than anything, I loathe the fact that Kim is promoting this waist-whittling method to her many, many young and impressionable social media followers.

You do all that by tapping shit that appears on your iPhone screen. I wish I could say it was more complicated. I wish I could say that all that tapping is so boring that you’re inclined to just delete the game after 15 minutes. But that would not be true, because again, I was up until 3 a.m. playing it. In fact, I’m thinking about it right now, wondering if I should expect a call from Kim soon inviting me to her house in Beverly Hills. Luckily, only getting a few hours of shut-eye wasn’t for naught.
