These Spiderwebs Were Created By Drugged Spiders

Somewhere in a lab far, far away, scientists fed spiders flies injected with LSD, mescaline, hashish, and caffeine. These are their webs. [ICNT4GIVE] Keep reading »

What Strange Stuff Did You Do As A Kid?

Yesterday, Amelia and I were discussing a random post idea, and Frederick’s of Hollywood came up. At that moment I remembered how much I enjoyed reading that catalog when I was younger. Yes, I read every product description in Frederick’s of Hollywood from cover to cover when I was only about 9 or 10. I even had my favorite model, one of the few, if the only black woman to grace the pages. I have no idea why my mom was on the mailing list. I don’t think she ever bought anything. It wasn’t a secret that I had a thing for Frederick’s of Hollywood, but I’m surprised my mom never told me to stop. I became even more fascinated with the catalog after my aunt told me Frederick’s of Hollywood was where hookers shopped. For some reason, lucite platforms, elephant trunk thongs for men, and ridiculous wigs intrigued me. But, then again, I was the kid who thought looking tacky was a good thing.

Score! Athletic Women Have Better Jobs And Make More Money

Even if you were the worst volleyball player on your middle school team, or if your parents dragged you kicking and screaming to basketball practice every week, chances are that you got some serious benefits out of playing an organized sport. A ton of research shows that women who played sports as kids and teens not only went further in their education, but landed better jobs and now make more money. In fact, one study showed that of women in executive positions, 82 percent played an organized sport after elementary school. And in general, while only 1 in 6 women identifies themselves as an “athlete,” that number shoots up to 1 in 2 for women who make $75K a year or more. That’s enough to make you kick a soccer ball around, no? Keep reading »

Japanese Inflatable Bosoms: Completely Bizarre, And Yet We Must Have Them


The following video is a bit hard to explain, but trust us, you will at first be perplexed, then mesmerized, and then in fits of laughter. It’s a demonstration of how to use Japanese inflatable, uh, boobies. Stick them on your shirt, and when you burst the inner packet, some chemical reaction occurs to make the balloons inflate. This is a gag gift, we assume. Unless you’re particularly prone to bumping into things and need airbags for your chesticle area. Either way, we’re kind of dying to try them. After the jump, check out some images and a similar (even creepier) product for guys—an inflatable swan-shaped boner to wear out of the fly of your pants. (We can’t think of any logical excuse for that one.) [Notcot] Keep reading »

The Last Place You Should Pick Your Nose Is During A Live Broadcast


Let this clip be a lesson to us all. Do not pick your boogers and eat them at work. Especially if you work in a newsroom and your desk is positioned directly behind the newscaster’s station because everyone will see you, including the viewers at home. Sure, you could try nonchalantly picking up the phone once you’ve realized what you’ve done, like the world did not just see you eat your boogers, but we won’t buy it. We saw. And we were grossed out. [via Dlisted] Keep reading »

Mom Of 2 Robs Bank, Then Picks Up Her Kids At School

Erica Anderson is your average 37-year-old mom of two in Grants Pass, Oregon. Which is why it’s so surprising that last Monday she walked into a local bank and slipped the teller a note telling her to fill a bag with money. The note also told the teller to wait 15 minutes before calling the police, “or else two kids wouldn’t make it home from school.” Keep reading »

Woman Dyes Cat Pink, Chaos Ensues

Across the pond, a cat that had been dyed pink was found wandering the streets and dubbed “The Pink Panther.” Not long after, the feline’s owner was located, Natasha Gregory, 22. (Headline: “I Dyed My Puss Pink.”) Gregory colored the cat with food dye; when asked why, she said she’d gotten the idea from a US TV show. Since Gregory has pink locks herself, “After I turned her pink, I was like, ‘Oh, she matches my hair.’” Meanwhile, animal services advises folks against dyeing any animal any color, although it’s too late for Oi! Kitty. [The Sun] Keep reading »

“Handsome Guy Mask” Is The Stuff Of Nightmares


There are a few occasions, I suppose, when I might be inclined to wear a “handsome guy mask”: 1.) when I just want to run errands and don’t want to be tailed by the paparazzi; 2) when walking my dog down an ex’s street; and 3) when I want to know what it’s like having women throw themselves at me because I am just that attractive. Unfortunately for the latter, I’d probably go with some other company’s “handsome guy mask,” because SPFX’s version is scaring the crap out of me. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
