A new world record was set and plenty of cash was raised for the Humane Society of New York at a high-society canine wedding last night.

A real pair of Christian Louboutin heels will set you back anywhere from $800 to $2000 (“A stupid pair of shoes should never cost the same amount as a fair condition ’95 Nissan Maxima!” — my dad), which means they’re not a realistic footwear option for most people. But hey, if the recession and crumbling global economy have taught us anything, it’s that a little creativity will get you far. Keep reading »

What the heck is a yogagasm? Read More »

Most yoga classes start out with a request to turn off or silence your cellphones, and a tacit understanding that if you do pull out your wireless device during class, you’re going to get some disapproving looks from the teacher and your classmates. As was the case during a lunchtime yoga class at Facebook headquarters, when a female employee started typing on her phone during a half moon pose. The teacher, Alice Van Ness, shot her a stern glance. Two weeks later, Van Ness was fired from her job… Keep reading »

“Jack The Gripper,” Alleged Serial Hugger, Could Face Charges

When does a hug become a crime?

One alleged serial hugger nicknamed “Jack the Gripper” is accused of pretending to know women and tricking them into giving him a hug, according to ABC News.

Dolphin Gangs
Beware of gang-banging dolphins. Read More »

Dolphins are like humans in a lot of ways: they have sex for pleasure, mingle with different social groups, and enjoy looking at themselves in the mirror. They also spend a lot of time talking to each other in whistles, clicks, and pulses (coincidentally, this is how many of us communicate with our best friends). So here’s the million dollar question: will we ever be able to crack the dolphin language code? Scientists are hard at work studying dolphin vocalizations, a task which is as challenging as it is fascinating. George Dvorsky over at i09 sums up what they’ve learned so far… Keep reading »
