This is a public service announcement: if you’re in need of any kind of spell, potion, psychic reading, or enchantment and prefer to procure your magical products via an online auction site, you best place your bids before August 30th. Why, you ask? Well, eBay just updated the seller guidelines in the paranormal and metaphysical categories and banned the sale of potions, spells, and psychic readings. The new rules take effect on August 30th, which means less than 10 days until you’re cut off from your favorite potion Power Seller. I would suggest trying your local neighborhood witch or wizard, but I’m not sure if they accept PayPal. Maybe it’s time to DIY your own potions? There’s bound to be some good recipes on Pinterest… [Mashable]

I like to think I love animals as much as the next gal, but to be honest, a lot of them scare the shit out of me. And I hate to admit it, but my fear is often based purely on looks. I am so shallow. For example, I think bears, which could kill me with just one swipe of their paw, are adorable — I just want to cuddle them! But an Aye-Aye, despite being totally harmless, sends horrified shivers down my spine. That’s why this slideshow is made up of the scariest-looking animals in the world, not necessarily the most fearsome. I’m so terrified of these 12 animals, I am actually angry about it. You’ve been warned.
This guy! This guy! Okay, so he doesn’t look much like Bryan Cranston, but I don’t know — when you’re a meth dealer named Walter White, maybe it’s just about living out your destiny. White was busted for meth manufacturing in Alabama because of course. No word on if he’s got a wife named Skylar and a business partner named Pinkman. [Buzzfeed]
The world needs more blogs pairing pictures of donuts with literary quotes, I always say. As I Lay Frying — Faulkner joke! — is just what us biblio-donut-philes need. [As I Lay Frying]
