What To Do When You Toot In Public?

Yes, you’ve tooted in public.

You’re dying, your neighbors are fuming, and you’re wondering if there’s something (anything!) you can do to prevent this embarrassing situation from ever repeating itself. Read more Keep reading »

Woman Is Pregnant With Two Babies Who Aren’t Twins

A Utah woman was shocked to find out that she was pregnant with two babies that aren’t twins. One fetus is five weeks and four days old, and the other is six weeks and one day old. So how did this happen? Angie Cromar, who has didelphys or double uteruses, beat the one in five million odds to conceive in both her uteruses. This rare condition wasn’t a factor in her other pregnancies, but now she and her husband are “a little nervous” about complications, like pre-term labor and low birth weight. Still though, the parents, their family, and the medical community are really excited about the babies. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »

Woman Hits The Jackpot Photographing Cats In Wigs

After watching this news report featuring Jill Johnson, a North Texas woman who got a book deal — see: Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Cats in Wigs — after she, a serious photojournalist, started photographing cats, yes, cats, in wigs, yes, wigs, I got really angry at myself. Why didn’t I pursue that idea of photographing cats in wigs back in 2005, when I had it? Now I’m the one with no book deal and no photos of cats in wigs. This is pretty embarrassing. For me. And the cats. I guess I can console myself with the fact that all these cats with wigs smashed on their heads look like they are not fans of Jill Johnson or her photography. Or wigs.

Is Athletic Prowess All Determined By The Belly Button?

Could your belly button reveal clues about your athletic ability? It just might, according to a study conducted by Duke University and Howard University. Scientists say that the navel position is the reason black people tend to dominate on the race track, while white people tend to excel in the swimming pool. Wait, did I read that correctly? Is this for real? Get me a measuring tape! Keep reading »

Female Math Professor Wins Lottery 4 Times

Texas woman Joan Ginther may just be the luckiest woman in the world. She has won the lottery four times. The chances of doing this are just one in 18 septillion. In case you (understandably) didn’t know—18 septillion is 18 with 24 zeros. And yet Ginther won $11 million in 1993, $2 million in 2006, $3 million in 2008 and $10 million last month. Keep reading »

Woman Goes To Jail For Sleeping With The Teenage Son She Gave Up At Birth

Detroit’s Aimee L. Sword has been sentenced to nine to 30 years in prison for having sex with her 14-year-old son, who she gave up for adoption when he was an infant. The 36-year-old Sword was married with five other kids when she tracked down her teenage son on Facebook. And, uh, started meeting him in hotel rooms for trysts. The boy eventually brought it up to a counselor, who told the police. The prosecutor said he was “concerned for this young boy and what it may have done to his psyche and his future.” Meanwhile Sword’s attorney told the press, “When she saw this boy, it wasn’t a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. Aimee’s searching for a reason why this happened. She can’t understand it. She’s going to get some counseling.” Keep reading »

You Know You’re A Geek When …

In honor of Embrace Your Geekiness Day, I’ve come to terms with my awkward and nerdy side. It’s OK, really it is, that my friends know me as the “Harry Potter expert” and come to me for study tips instead of boy advice. I’ve embraced my high GPA and love for the theater instead of the nightclub, and so should you. Not sure if you pass the geek test? Here’s how you can tell if you’re a dork (trust me, I would know).

Designer Toilet Seat Covers For The Discriminating Toilet Goer

Wishing for world peace? Praying you’ll win the lottery? Perhaps you should settle for another kind of a dream come true: designer toilet seat covers. Yes, Toletta is here, and with the advent of this product, you may never find yourself squatting in high heels over a nasty, dirty public toilet again in your life. Seriously, though, nothing is grosser than a toilet seat in a bar or a club — except for maybe the toilet bowl itself. Who wants to touch that mess with a 10-foot pole, much less your precious posterior? Toletta to the rescue, bathroom dwellers! Five seat covers, available in pink or blue, come in a discreet, purse-sized travel pack and part of the proceeds goes to charity. The cover itself is thicker and bigger than regular seat covers that are thin as all get-out and always slipping off when you’re trying to come in for a landing. Also, they’re biodegradable. Your thighs may not be quite so toned from all those potty squats, but that’s what the gym is for, not the loo. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »
