    Cosmetics brand Lush, popular among young girls and hipsters for their “bath bombs,” is launching a new anti-President Trump hair care product. According to Cosmopolitan, Lush announced plans to release a hair treatment called “Yuge,” a play on the way Trump pronounces the word “huge,” alongside an “orange faced, tiny-handed man” at their 2017 Lush Summit. The “Yuge” product is reportedly a hot oil treatment that will “add volume and softness to your hair.” Cosmopolitan notes the product is not currently available as it is being tested on humans in the U.K. (Lush opposes animal testing). Lush’s homepage features two statements opposing...
  • Heres What Happened When I Said I Couldnt Be Friends With A Trump Supporter (BARF)

    Two weeks ago I published an open letter here to a long-time, long-distance friend after I learned she had voted for Donald Trump. I stated that I realized I never really knew her, that I couldn’t fall back on the thought that she lived in the Rust Belt and experienced “economic anxiety” (she doesn’t, and surely isn’t) and that I’m just being honest when I say we can no longer be friends. There was a lot of response on social media and elsewhere, most of it positive, much of it from people in far more difficult situations ― people who...

    Bringing my adopted cat, Jameson, home with me in 2014 was one of the happiest days of my life. Having to go back to work two days later was one of the worst. While the rest of the country is hung up on the necessity of maternity leave or even the newly coined meternity one group continues to be overlooked when it comes to paid time off from work: new pet owners.

    The worst thing about the ridiculous strawman stereotypes that your political opponents make up and shove down your throat at every opportunity is that in a world as big, beautiful and diverse as ours is, theyll eventually find someone out of the seven-billion-and-change human beings on Earth who fits that stereotype for real. Ill be the first to admit this cuts in all directions, and that as much fun as my Facebook feed has with idiot conservative of the day stories, the majority of Republican voters can in fact spell the word moron, understand that Medicare is in fact a...

    Did you know that it is perfectly normal for a man to appear in public wearing pink pony ears and tail? No, really. There is nothing at all unusual about that. And if you don't believe me then I will write an overlong article trying to convince you of its complete normalcy. Such is the attitude of Jennifer Goforth Gregory of The Atlantic who tries a bit too hard to convince the readers that men wearing flashy pony costumes is absolutely normal. The funniest thing about Gregory plugging such men aka "Bronies" is how much obvious effort she puts into...

    A new law being considered in Iraq could lead to girls as young as eight getting married and wives having to submit to sex at their husband's every request. The controversial proposals have provoked outrage from activists both within Iraq and around the globe, who see it as a huge step backwards for women's rights. The measure, aimed at creating different laws for Iraq's majority Shiite population, could further fray the country's divisions amid some of the worst sectarian bloodshed since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

    When Obamas motorcade rocketed around San Francisco on Monday, very few locals even noticed his presence, and fewer still cared. The crowds awaiting him at each presidential fundraiser were by far the smallest Id seen in over five years of covering his visits here. Ticket sales to at least one of the events were so sluggish that prices had to be lowered to fill the empty seats. Out in the street, rubberneckers and protesters had dwindled to the bare minimum. This is what happens when a hero disappoints: you dont turn on him in anger, but rather just tune him...

    Bono, Olivia Wilde and Richard Branson join Matt Damon's "toilet strike" What is the latest celebrity accessory trend? Diapers. In a humorous, but fact-filled PSA, Olivia Wilde, Bono and Richard Branson announce they are joining Matt Damon's toilet strike to raise awareness about the global water crisis. In the definition of promises they can't keep (but it's the sentiment that counts), the three celebs pledge, "We won't go to the bathroom until everyone in the world has access to clean water and sanitation." "I remember when Matt first brought up the idea, it was at a meeting of the illuminati,"...

    According to former child star Corey Feldman, child molestation is rampant in the entertainment industry, as he told Nightline in an interview. "The No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia," he said Wednesday. According to Feldman, the casting couch exists for children, too. Feldman asserts that directors and other adults in the industry take advantage of young aspiring actors on a regular basis. It's all done under the radar... But it's the big secret, the 40-year-old said.
  • $1 Billion That Nobody Wants (dollar coins)

    Politicians in Washington hardly let a few minutes go by without mentioning how broke the government is. So, it's a little surprising that they've created a stash of more than $1 billion that almost no one wants. Unused dollar coins have been quietly piling up in Federal Reserve vaults in breathtaking numbers, thanks to a government program that has required their production since 2007. And even though the neglected mountain of money recently grew past the $1 billion mark, the U.S. Mint will keep making more and more of the coins under a congressional mandate. The pile of idle...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner has achieved something by behaving so spectacularly shamefully. Unless I miss my guess, he has revived the concept of sexual morality. Even for a jaded nation, this is one sex scandal too far. We've had it. Our capacity to remain non-judgmental on sexual matters -- as we've been tirelessly instructed to do for 40 years -- seems to have reached its end point. The national reaction to Weiner's conduct, in contrast to previous sex scandals (and there have been too many to count in the past two decades), has been not amusement (though jokes made the rounds)...

    Jared Lee Loughners rants about grammar and mind control track closely to the writings of a conspiracy theorist who believes that is how the government controls the populace, one leading group says and the man tells POLITICO he agrees with some of Loughners statements. The far-right activist, David Wynn Miller, said in a telephone interview that he didnt know Loughner, but agreed with his statement in a YouTube video that the government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar. Absolutely I would agree with it, said Miller, 62, a former tool-and-die maker from Milwaukee...

    "Some UFOs are intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft, and this is the biggest story of the millennium." These words are not the rantings of a deranged individual looking for attention or a comfortable straitjacket. Stanton Friedman is a maverick of sorts. Employed for 14 years as a nuclear physicist for companies like General Electric, General Motors, Westinghouse and Aerojet General Nucleonics, he worked on highly classified programs involving nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets. In 1958, UFOs caught his attention, and Friedman has since lectured about this subject at more than 700 colleges and professional groups in all 50 states and...

Authorities say the 20-year-old Kilcher tied herself to the fence Tuesday and her 41-year-old mother, Saskia, poured a black substance over her.

    Vodka eyeballing. Its the latest drinking fad on YouTube, and it could cause blindness. Hundreds of online videos that originated in the U.K. show teens pouring vodka directly into their eyes, straight from the bottle. The videos are getting hundreds of thousands of hits, MyFoxDC.com reported. Substance abuse expert Mike Gumbel claims kids arent eyeballing to get drunk faster, but do it when the effects of alcohol have already set in and impaired their judgment. Eyeballing is more of a prank than a way to become more intoxicated. Theyre not doing it to get more drunk, theyre doing it as...

    Bravery isn't the first word that comes to mind when looking at these images of a Japanese log-rolling ceremony. But that is exactly what these young men are apparently proving during the bizarre Ki-otoshi ceremony, where they ride the giant logs as they are yanked down steep hills by ropes. Skidding and bumping over the rough terrain, at times the logs literally drop down the steep inclines
