Later this month, a group of students in New York City are pioneering a new program called “Good To Go” which would reuse coffee cups around the city. The Brooklyn Roasting Company in DUMBO, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, will begin the program on April 15, when caffeine addicts can drink from a light, reusable cup and then bring it back some other time. The cups will be sanitized before they’re reused on other customers. There is also a possibility of creating perks for coffee drinkers who reuse cups, like waiting in shorter lines similar to a “carpool lane.” Keep reading »
Have you ever written a truly hilarious, perfectly constructed, exceedingly clever tweet, sent it out into the Twittersphere, and then felt like, “Damn, that’s it?” I mean, 10 retweets and 15 favorites is nice and all, but what if you want your tweet to have a more lasting legacy, to exist in the actual physical world, to be dug up by archeologists 200 years from now, who will surely chuckle at your adept wordplay? Enter #PermanentRetweet, a service that turns tweets into etched wood or metal decorative pieces. Username, Twitter icons, time stamp, and all. Keep reading »

It was only a matter of time before authorities found Kenneth Herold’s missing Rolex … in his masseuse’s vagina.

A teenage girl in Mexico is accused of fatally stabbing her best friend to death because, police suspect, the friend had posted naked selfies photos the two had taken together to Facebook. Erandy Elizabeth Gutierrez (left), 16, allegedly stabbed Anel Baez (right), also 16, a total of 65 times at Baez’s home in Guamúchil. Baez had come over to patch things up following a dispute over the naked photos, and police allege that after excusing herself to go to the bathroom, Gutierrez grabbed a knife in the kitchen and began stabbing Baez. She reportedly fled the scene and was arrested three days later at Baez’s funeral. According to Notus, Gutierrez had sent a threatening tweet (from a now-deleted account) to Baez in the weeks before the attack, writing, “It may seem that I am very calm, but in my head I have killed you at least three times.” Police are expected to charge Gutierrez with murder later this week.

Job hunters, here’s one way to guarantee you will not find employment: attach a dick pic with your resume. We know this because, well, common sense, and a man in Dallas went ahead and tested this method out. His, um, credentials did not land him a job offer, but did earn him a class C misdemeanor for “obscene display or distribution” of his penis. Keep reading »
Have sex to save the country.
That’s essentially the meaning of the “Do It For Denmark” campaign sponsored by travel company Spies Rejser.
One of the ads (seen above) frets that Denmark’s birthrate is not looking so hot these days and is at its lowest level in decades. The Washington Post helpfully confirms that Danish people aren’t making babies like they used to, but the travel company sees hope in the tougher-to-verify stat that Danes have 46 percent more sex on vacation.

The world is divided into two types of people: those who name their wireless networks and those who don’t. Those in the former group (I’m in the latter — mine is A104 because I’m lazy) tend to go with something witty like NOFREELOADERSALLOWED or something personal like AMISWIFI. A business owner in Brooklyn’s posh Park Slope neighborhood has a much bigger problem than what to name her wireless network. Brigitte Prat was outraged when she discovered that someone had seemingly sabotaged her hair salon/toy store, Lulu’s, with a truly inappropriate wireless network name: Lulu’s Anal Bleaching For Kids.
