    We’ve heard about dangers of selfie-takers alongside cliffs; people try to create the perfect photo op and sadly step just a bit too far.

    Thankfully, no one was hurt in this debacle… but the same can’t be said for some pricey art pieces. This visitor of 14th Factory in Los Angeles was positioning herself for a photo and accidentally knocked the pedestal on which the art was displayed, sending it tumbling into the others dominoes style! She caused $200,000 worth of damage. Oops.

  • I don’t know how I feel about this.

    Target has decided to rebrand their signature clothing labels. So, say goodbye to the belovedMerona and Mossimo!Nooooo! (Look, I don’t need to be all extra with designer labels. Er, mostly because my budget ain’t extra!) A rep for the store says, “Our new brands are all about the changing face of our guests — what they need, what they're looking for from Target.”

    I’m skeptical, but I’ll give this a chance. I’m curious to see what the new brands look like, but not so sure about the cost. I’ve always loved the bargains you can find in Target’s signature pieces. TL;DR - They want to bolster their sales to compete with Amazon. And also, raise prices. What do you think?

    They’re usually all business and not much pleasure, but occasionally TSA officers do have a sense of humor and take time out for a fun photo op!

    This officer came across a 20-foot lobster in someone’s checked bag! (Yes, it’s legal and yes, it was allowed to continue on its journey, packed properly in a cooler!)

    I have a lot of questions! But mostly… just… why? That thing is so big, it could’ve sat in its own seat in coach! And also, gimme a bib and pass the butter! In the words of Bruno Mars, “lobster tail for dinner!”

  • So summer is here and it’s the best! Sun, fun, long days outdoors… but ughhh, beware! West Nile! Zika! Lyme Disease! All these horrible maladies! BUGS!!!!!! This is why we can’t have nice things!!! And the Lone Star Tick—named for the Texas shape on its back—started out in the southeastern USA, but it’s spreading. Great!

    When you get bitten, it totally effs up your immune system; it gives you hives, stomach pains, and a whole myriad of awful symptoms – plus tick-induced meat allergies! It reportedly reacts to a sugar protein consumed in red meat. Another reminder to constantly check yourself, your kids, and pets for these nasty little bugs. And use bug spray whenever possible! SMH… bugs about to ruin my love for hamburgers, GTFO!

  • Wait, what?

    Yeah, so our friends at Facebook created some chatbots and designed them to negotiate.

    And this happened:

    “At one point, the researchers write, they had to tweak one of their models because otherwise, the bot-to-bot conversation ‘led to divergence from human language as the agents developed their own language for negotiating,’” according to TheAtlantic.com.

    So are the bots basically like, “You can’t sit with us?”

    Will our own technology set out to destroy humanity?

    Can the bots tell Zuckerberg to fix that problem where you go to look at something on Facebook, but suddenly your feed jumps and you can no longer find what you hadn’t finished reading?

    Oh and turns out, bots are good at negotiating. Could be useful for asking for that raise, huh? I have so many questions! What do you think?

    OMG, here’s a story that will make you smile!

    90-year-old William Tobin served in the Navy in World War II. He left high school to enlist, and after, life went on as he built a family and raised three children.

    Fast forward to today. He still wanted that official high school diploma, so he contacted the principal at Rockville High School in Vernon, Connecticut and he is officially part of the Class of 2017!

    Lookin’ sharp in that cap and gown! Congratulations, William! And thanks for your service all those years ago! here!

  • This is my beautiful furbaby, Maestro. He is six-years-old. I rescued him and his brother, Medley, when they were kittens. (And yes, Maestro is overweight and we’re working on that!) But last week, we had a little bit of a health scare. The boys went for their yearly vet check-ups and received clean bills of health and we went on our way.

    Not long after that, Maestro started throwing up. A lot. For a few days. To the point where he wasn’t even eating (and that’s his favorite thing! LOL!), so I knew something was wrong.

    Back to the vet, we went. Blood tests were done. She gave him an anti-nausea injection and some fluids so he wouldn’t get dehydrated.

    Thankfully, all of his numbers came back fine! His organs are great, his glucose is good, and he tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. Phew!

    Seems he just suddenly had a bad reaction to his food. His brother is on a prescription diet for an ongoing urinary issue, so they just shared the same food. So I replaced Maestro’s with another kind and he’s feeling much better now! I’m a relieved kitty momma! -Lisa Gold

  • No, but really! So Oreo is always busting out new, limited edition varieties (some better than others—Red Velvet, Yum! Green Apple, blech)! And this summer, they’ve come up with something pretty ingenious actually!

    Meet Fireworks Oreos! They taste like a regular Oreo… until the POP ROCKS inside them start a Fourth of July party right on top of your tongue!

    A co-worker always has the latest cookie incarnation, so he had them and I had to try! Verdict? They’re super weird, but really don’t taste any different! The popping is exciting! I’m a fan! Something fun to try at your summer parties—and your kids will certainly get a kick out of them!

  • We’ve binged Fuller House and Gilmore Girls while Will & Grace and Roseanne are in the works; nostalgia revivals are ALL the rage right now! And although they keep shooting it down, I continue to hold onto a thread of hope that maybe—MAYBE—the cast of Friends will change their mind and do one.

    But no. And why not? Because Chandler has nightmares. Yes. For real. Matthew Perry’s recurring nightmare is one reason why we may never reunite with the Central Perk gang again! He told Variety, “When I’m asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares.” Sorry Matthew, but your subconscious is wrong; there are A LOT of people who would be thrilled, just sayin’! Could we BE any more bummed?

  • We’re all guilty of taking selfies. Some more than others (looking at you, Kim K) but as it turns out, your followers probably don’t care about seeing them!

    A recent study in Europe found that while 77% of people often share selfies, over 60% of participants said they felt selfies look staged and/or could cause low self-esteem, and a whopping 82% said they’d prefer to see photos other than selfies on social media! Sounds like you’re the only one who likes your selfies! Read more about the study here.

    (Oh and while we’re here… bathroom selfies are soooo 2010! I feel like I’ve seen every loo on the planet, and yes, I’ve shared mine. So maybe we should consider new backdrops?)
