Instead of teaching me…

Merry Christmas! Here’s A Tom Hiddleston/Benedict Cumberbatch Dance-Off Video

Just in time for Christmas, here's a brilliant video mashup of geeky British heartthrobs Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch throwing down some of their best dance moves.

The most exciting thing to be found in a traditional Christmas newsletter is usually a clever pun or the audacious use of Comic Sans in multiple colors.

Believed to despise one another, so much so that there is an animated movie about it (and a sequel!), it's really much less of an outright hatred and more just an implied narrative of canine fear. Most cats don't eve…

British Bookseller Waterstones Overshadows Amazon’s New Drone Program

Sorry, Amazon: your robot drone delivery program just got one-upped, in terms of both efficiency and novelty. The future of delivery will not be dependent on technology, but rather winged animals — that is, if one British book retail giant has any say in it. Waterstones has trounced Amazon's plans (which, really, now seem quaint…

Italian Lady Explains All The Italian Hand Gestures You Need To Know (NSFW)

During all the years I studied Italian, I never learned much of the important stuff I needed in Italy, like "Only with a condom on!" and "Get your hand out of my purse, you fucking pickpocket scum." Too bad comedian Veronika Poli wasn't around. Here are all of the hand gestures you need to know…

Hey guys, meet your first black girlfriend! Her name is Akilah Hughes, and she's a writer and comedienne.
