Let’s all hope this woman was kidding when she wrote on her Facebook status, “I don’t care how anti-feminest [sic] it sounds. i don’t think girls should be required to learn about politics. i’d rather clean my house than go vote.” She realizes she has the right to not vote, right? I think girls should be required to pass an IQ test before they’re allowed to use Facebook. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
You think composing pithy Facebook status updates and slyly stalking your exes via the social networking site isn’t bothering anybody, right? Well, you’re wrong. Your Facebook usage is ruining the economy. Just ask Michael Fitzpatrick, an analyst at ConnectSolutions who discovered the huge toll Facebook has taken on our productivity and general will to live (am I right, guys?). According to Mr. Fitzpatrick, the average worker spends around seven minutes a day on Facebook (this number seems astronomically low to us). And if you multiply that times the roughly 48 million Internet-connected working people in the U.S., that’s around 336,000,000 wasted minutes per day, around the country. In the course of the day, that’s costing businesses $140 million, and annually, it adds up to $280 billion dollars in lost productivity. That’s a lot of widgets we’re not making while checking our status updates instead.
Well, at least we’re not hanging out on Myspace. That would truly be a waste of time. [TheFitzpatricks.net] Keep reading »

That’s hip-hop darling Tyler the Creator on how hilarious it is to hit girls. Other gems from his interview with rapper Waka Flocka Flame in this month’s Interview magazine? Tyler explains that the band name Odd Future came from a time that dragons tried to kill him: “Well, we were at a skate park on just a regular skate day, and this dragon just came out of nowhere and tried to attack me, so we killed the dragon. That’s how we got the name.” Sure! More delicious excerpts after the jump: Keep reading »
