A female stylist is suing the gay, male owner of a UK beauty salon for being a “sexist bully.” Natasha Bramhall claims Funky Divas owner, Andrew Rogers told her that he only wanted to hire fat, gay hairdressers because they wouldn’t get pregnant and have to go on maternity leave.
Bramhall says that while she was pregnant, Rogers forced her to handle unsafe products (stuff like bleach, I’m assuming) and that it made her “anxious and stressed.” When she returned to work after giving birth to her son, Rogers allegedly demoted Bramhall, forcing her to quit. Keep reading »
For most of us, a few (or 10) cups of coffee a day is what it takes to turn us into functioning members of society. But what if your basic coffee isn’t cutting it anymore? Pour yourself a cup of Death Wish Coffee, which claims to be the world’s strongest coffee, with 200 percent more caffeine than average roasts. Produced in upstate New York, Death Wish uses a special type of coffee bean and a unique roasting process to maintain its ridiculously high caffeine content. “This is Extreme Coffee, not for the weak,” the Death Wish website explains. “Consider yourself warned.” My hands are shaking just writing about this, but if you’re jonesing for your own Death Wish, you can order some online for $19.99 a pound. Godspeed. [Oddity Central]
Dear Tyree Carter,
You’ve really done it this time. When you started spending a lot of time at the library, I was excited. I thought you were showing me you cared by putting in effort to job hunt and become more literate. I thought that all of our discussions about how I would be more sexually attracted to you if you “read a book once in a while and brought home a paycheck” had not fallen on deaf ears.
Tyree, I was wrong. You played me for a fool. Keep reading »
Have you ever got a pizza craving so intense that you’re like, “I would totally take four people hostage for several hours in order to get my hands on some pizza right now”? Me too, obviously, but I’ve never acted on it. Yesterday, a man in southern Russia did just that, bursting into a college and barricading himself in a classroom with two students, a teacher, and a janitor. According to a police spokesman, “His only demand was a pizza and Sprite.” Police evacuated the area and delivered the man’s desired meal, at which point he released his hostages unharmed. Just one more piece of evidence that pizza is the most powerful drug of all. [Raw Story]
If you’ve been using the hood of your hoodie as a way to keep your head warm and shield you from the elements, you’ve really been missing out. Because guess what? If you turn your hoodie around, that same old hood transforms into a convenient trough to store your snack foods. Just fill your hood with chips, popcorn, or leftover lasagna, and dip your head down to enjoy a hands-free feast! In related news, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. [Buzzfeed]
I don’t know your name, but I commend you for your effort to be the best airplane seat mate ever. Sure, you took it a bit too far. But the intention was there and that’s what counts. As many of us have experienced, getting trapped on a long flight next to a person who is farting/snoring/talking non-stop is unbearable. More than unbearable, it’s a goddamn nightmare.
When you found yourself sitting next to a hot woman on a five-hour flight through China, you made it your mission to remain seated the entire time so as not to disturb her. And when I say disturb her, I mean that you didn’t want to offend her with your pot belly. In order to do this, you declined to drink any of the complimentary beverages so you wouldn’t have to get up to use the men’s room. You remained seated with your seatbelt securely fastening around your safely hidden paunch for the entire flight, barely moving at all. I’m sure the woman was thrilled to have you as a seat mate. Truly. Keep reading »
