Some clown in China thought it would be a good idea for him to stroll into a panda habitat and disturb the sleeping bear within it. Unfortunately for this jagoff, his host had only pain to offer as a greeting.
Oh God, it’s Oscar time again. Just what I needed in the middle of the fucking apocalypse. Donald Trump is President. Russia has hacked all of our phones and is actively watching us masturbate. And every public school is going to teach your kids that gay people come from the fucking moon. These are shitty, horrible…
Many people eat bacon but few regularly peruse the news for news about hogs. Until now.
Last night, I noticed that between the Kylie Jenner fan accounts and the photos of baseball WAGs, Instagram had slipped a channel into my discover feed called “oddly soothing.”
Though Americans may have our political differences, we can all agree that children should not be subjected to grotesque displays of nudism and sexual organs. Correction: we cannot all agree on this, judging by the latest uproar found on the internet.
It would absolutely break his heart if you told Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough that no one would go see his bad band perform if it weren’t for the fact that his real job is hosting a television show, so please, no one tell him.
One of the many terrifying aspects of having Donald Trump as president is that he, like all children, is very easily persuaded. Single meetings and conversations can shape his entire, pliable worldview. The wolves of corporate America know what easy prey looks like.
Today, more than 300 grad student workers at Yale will vote on whether or not they want to unionize. You may be shocked to learn that the powers that be at this enlightened center of liberal learning are not thrilled!
Last weekend, as Donald Trump prepared to rally in Florida, Barack Obama laid low after his vacation with Richard Branson, and Hillary Clinton took in some Broadway shows, 250 young leftists from across the country crowded into a Brooklyn church to learn how to spread the good word about socialism.
Did you hear the good news? NASA found some new Earth-sized exoplanets that aren’t that far away. There might be aliens on them! Or maybe we’ll be able to live on them someday! Either way, there’s no harm in doing some early planning.
Perhaps you imagine that enlightened lawmaking will bring our nation’s rampant inequality problem under control. History tells us the prognosis may be much, much more grim. We spoke to the author of one of the scariest books we have ever read.
Can you imagine telling an inequality-wracked world that we might not want to take away a billionaire’s money? Absurd. And poorly argued!
The sophistication and scale of the Roman economy was a marvel that powered all of its other achievements, from monumental buildings on three continents to its famed and feared professional army. Although it was an agrarian economy focused around agricultural production, it was surprisingly complex, with whole regions…
Whoa now. Everyone take a deep breath.
I watched The Accountant on an airplane last week because that’s the kind of movie you watch on an airplane. And even though it effectively bled two hours off the flight, I have many questions:
John McCain—the original Maverick, ol’ Walnuts, the brave teller of truths—is somehow once again positioning himself, to credulous journalists, as a renegade Republican who isn’t afraid to buck his party, despite his three-decade record of not ever actually bucking his party in any meaningful way.
“CEO” is a term for someone who is paid more money than you because they are able to project a large degree of confidence about their wrong ideas. Don’t take my word for it—it’s science!
Here is a ... well, here is something:
I’ll watch pretty much any British period drama that’s available to me because I like cool costumes and accents. Penny Dreadful? Sign me the hell up. Peaky Blinders? You bet your ass. The Crown? Ehhh, I don’t know, maybe. It’s maybe not technically a “period” drama, but I’d say 80 percent of the reason I’m still…
