    I Guess the Dress is Being Replaced By Flip-Flops This Year

    We almost got out of 2016 without a viral color identification controversy, but it wasn’t to be. The spiritual successor to last year’s white and gold but actually blue and black dress has arrived in the form of a pair of flip flops, which are some combination of colors. I’m not going to speculate. This […]

    Thousands Have Signed Petition For In-N-Out To Offer Vegetarian Options

    Vegetarians have had enough. Just because they don’t eat meat doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get to eat at one of America’s most beloved burger chains. That is why thousands of people have signed a petition demanding that In-N-Out Burger start serving veggie burgers. The Change.org petition, which was started by the Good Food Institute earlier this month, has […]

    Pumpkin Spice Hair is the Latest Hair Craze

    It’s really happened. We have reached full Pumpkin Spice saturation. We thought it was bad enough when they came out with Pumpkin Spice-flavored Cheerios, English Muffins and M&M’s. Things also seemed to have gone too far when McDonald’s made their PSL beverages available in mid-August. But none of that compares to this. Guess what is the new hair […]

    Snowden (Film) Review

    ‘Snowden,’ based on the life and impact of former CIA and NSA contractor Edward Snowden, is Oliver Stone’s latest endeavor featuring a mix of top notch cast, “dramatizations” and strange screenplay choices.

    Ikea Australia Makes Kanye West Look Like a Fool on Facebook

    Today in obscure corporate Facebook accounts, we have Ikea Australia (there’s one for every country Ikea is in, best I can tell) coming at Kanye West, kind of. Calling it beef is too strong — it’s hard to classify it, actually, but I think that captures Kanye West, the man, the musician, and the social media user, pretty well. […]

    Facebook Takes on Snapchat By Way of Instagram Stories

    It’s easy to forget sometimes, but Instagram belongs to Facebook thanks to a what now seems low $1 billion acquisition in 2012. To his credit, Mark Zuckerberg has stayed fairly hands-off, although Instagram’s changes to their feed this year suggests that may no longer be the case.

    Finally, There is a Marshmallow-Only Cereal

    Here’s a huge win for our 7-year-old selves who refuse to eat like adults.

    A Slew of New Career Women Emoji Are Finally On Their Way

    When Unicode, the arbiter of all emoji, released Unicode 9.0 this past June, it became possible to use emoji in multiple skin tones. Nice step forward, but women were still getting the short end of the stick, with emoji for princesses, brides, and getting haircuts — and not much in the way of actual careers (with […]
