Every time I go to the gym (which, I confess, has not been in quite some time), I eye this one machine that has a bunch of wires and weights and wonder how the heck it works. I’ve never seen anyone use it, and I refuse to try it because A) I will likely hurt myself and B) I will likely look like an idiot. And then this morning, I saw this video of a man at a Crossfit gym who got … creative with ways to use the gym equipment in which he clearly has no idea how to maneuver. This, my friends, is why you consult a trainer. Not even Carrie Underwood’s amazing new workout line could make this disaster look good. [Daily Picks And Flicks]
I’m dyingggg. Either “Jimmy Kimmel Live”‘s “Mean Tweets” segment is getting funnier, or humankind is becoming more vicious— okay, or maybe it’s both. Whatever it may be, the TV host brought back his popular “Mean Tweets” segment last night, where he has celebs read actual cruel tweets directed at them, and it was one of the best ones yet. While Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t seem too amused reading her tweet (because, let’s be honest, she’s about as stale as month-old bread), other stars like Chloë Grace Moretz, Lisa Kudrow, Scott Foley and John Stamos found humor in the hatred. Is it bad that I want to start tweeting mean things just for the chance to have it read on television? My tirade against Taylor Swift begins now.
Step aside, Taylor Swift, because your “Blank Space” video just became old news now that Schick’s “Crib In My Pants” video has arrived.
To advertise the new Schick Hydro Groomer men’s razor, the brand teamed up with JWT New York to create a music video that takes us through one manscaper’s quest to make the “crib in his pants” more alluring to the ladies. Complete with testimonial interludes from girlfriends of the past and present, we can see the “renovations” taking place before our eyes, all to the soothing sounds of a beautiful ballad.

Hey guys, meet your first black girlfriend! Her name is Akilah Hughes, and she’s a writer and comedienne. Lucky for you, this isn’t her first time at the interracial relationship rodeo — so she knows exactly what to say when it comes to the “unspoken anxiety” and those “cringe-worthy moments” that are pretty much an inevitable part of the “white guy falls for black girl, foot-in-mouth syndrome ensues” narrative. In fact, she’s so familiar with it that she’s gone right ahead and cleared some of the big questions up for you in one brief, hilarious video. So go ahead and get the fried chicken. She doesn’t care!

Apple’s latest operating system is divisive to a degree that’s usually reserved for politics. Some love it, some people loathe it, and others … well, it just makes them sick. One of iOS 7′s key differences from previous Apple interfaces is “parallax,” an unnecessary if hypnotizing feature that enables the icons on the screen to shift back and forth with the motions of the actual phone. Many people have reported feeling physically ill, and suffering from nausea and even vertigo as a result of the “aggressive animations.” A quick flick into your Settings will offer you the choice to turn parallax off, but why bother when you could try Stop Looking At Your Fucking Phone Every 5 Seconds?
