Famous Dogs To Follow On Social Media For Puppy Day

Ever since finishing school and moving to a new city, I have been pining for a small furry friend — specifically, a puppy. However, I'm unfortunately not at a place currently where I can afford to take care of a dog... so all of these famous dogs on social media will have to suffice my craving for man's best friend. Especially since National Puppy Day is on Mar. 23, and I don't think I can bear watching another person post that they got a dog in honor of this day because I so desperately want t…

How You'd React To The Apocalypse, According To Science

It's the favorite daydream of stressed-out college students and doomsday preppers alike — without warning, the apocalypse is around the corner, so pesky stuff like homework and bills are no longer important. Instead, all that matters is how you would react during the end of the world. Would you be the Machiavellian looter type who smashes up abandoned cars just because she can? Or would you round up your friends for one last feel-good drum circle before the end of all things? These are all impo…

The Weirdest Sex Toys To Ever Exist

Lately, I've been feeling like we need a corollary to Rule 34 of the Internet, which states that if something exists, there's porn of it: If something exists, there's a sex toy of it. I've seen some weird sex toys pop up, and it makes sense. Sex is a time for us to let loose and have fun, which sometimes includes silliness. So, perhaps paradoxically, adult products can bring out our inner children. The variety of stuff that can give people sexual pleasure is pretty amazing. According to one Red…

Surprising Signs You Might Be A Narcissist

In any given day, almost all of us show some signs of narcissism, and that's totally OK. For some people, however, it can get out of hand.
