Dog has existential crisis after finally catching his tail

There’s a core spiritual question for dogs who chase their tails: What, exactly, are they after?
Twitter user @omw2innisfree’s friend’s dog, Max, recently experienced something of a spiritual crisis after finally capturing his own tail.
Pay attention to the look on Max’s face after he finally holds onto it.

What exactly could Max be thinking? It’s like he landed on the emotional jackpot of a dog’s life — complete and total tail entrapment — and now he doesn’t know what to do with his riches.
Does he bite his tail? Squeeze his tail? Nuzzle his tail? What…

Man attempts to bring enormous dog onto subway in tiny ‘bag’

Whether it’s blood, vomit, or urine, New York City commuters are used to seeing a range of bodily fluids on the train. Every once in a while, however, they’ll be treated to something special: a dog in a bag.
Twitter user @WillSCourtney recently witnessed an owner with his enormous dog in what can only be described as a bag-like structure. (It appears to be a big brown sack with holes.) The dog’s owner attempted to board a subway with his dog in the sack, only to be turned away by an MTA conductor.

Watch women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw’s viral remarks on gender equality

Muffet McGraw, the head women’s basketball coach at the University of Notre Dame, led her team to a spot in the NCAA championship game on Friday night. Much less importantly, she’s had two viral moments this week: her extremely good celebratory dance moves and a powerful sound bite about gender equality.
The latter came during a press conference on Thursday when a reporter asked McGraw about her decision to no longer hire male coaches. In her response, McGraw addressed inequality in both sports and politics, emphasizing the need for young women to see people like them in leadership roles across the board….

Stephen Colbert tears into NASA for its female spacesuit debacle

In case you needed any evidence that we’re still living in a world that’s built for men, you need look no further than this week’s news that an historic all-female spacewalk has been cancelled due to a lack of availability of appropriately sized space suits.  
Astronauts Christina Koch and Anne McClain were supposed to be space-bound, but NASA only had one suit available in the size that both women required.
Stephen Colbert tore into NASA in his “Meanwhile” segment. 
“So, apparently we pick our female astronauts the same way we pick our Rockettes,” Colbert joked. “‘Look toots, you wanna walk in space, you…

Trump fans look for safe spaces with an app avoiding ‘MAGAphobic’ restaurants

Donald Trump supporters are turning to a Yelp-like restaurant review app in search of safe spaces.
Dubbing the society-wide repulsion to the president’s signature red hats as “MAGAphobic,” Trump fans are using the app “63red Safe” as a guide to conservative-friendly restaurants. The Daily Beast reports that the app’s users rate businesses based on if the owners “make political social media posts” and if customers are allowed to carry weapons.

Usain Bolt tied the NFL’s fastest 40-yard dash and he was super chill about it

Usain Bolt really just did that. 
The retired Olympian tied the NFL’s record for the fastest 40-yard dash, clocking in at 4.22 seconds, and he wasn’t even wearing specialized running spikes. He did it in literal sweatpants and casual sneakers.

People were not surprised at all that the nine time gold medalist is … fast.

Why the ’15-minute recipe’ sets you up to fail

Like any good millennial, I like to pretend that I prefer cooking to takeout. I love to tell myself that I cook quickly and well. When my day in the spotlight finally arrives and I’m interviewed for a Refinery29 “Money Diary,” the whole world will see how much money I save by cooking and how efficiently I spend my time in the kitchen.
My fantasy is a widely shared delusion. Nothing has crushed me and my fellow millennials harder than the popular “15-minute recipe” genre, which promises that you can cook a masterful meal (sometimes including prep time) in 15 minutes or…

Pervs kept stealing the ‘mile 69’ highway marker, so it was replaced with this

2019 has barely started, and we’ve already suffered a great loss: A “69” mile marker is gone forever, and will not be replaced.
The Washington Department of Transportation is sick and tired of people stealing the marker (notably known as the ~sex number~) so it’s replacing the highway sign with one that says “68.9.”

No, Netflix isn’t making fake teen accounts to spread ‘Bird Box’ memes

Even in a year that gave us peak Q Anon, this may be the most 2018 conspiracy theory ever. There are people online who believe Netflix used bot accounts to spread viral memes about its record hit movie Bird Box. 
The over-the-top apocalyptic thriller, which features a family making the perilous journey down a river in hopes of finding a community safe from invisible monsters that have taken over the world, is ripe with meme potential. The monsters inexplicably make victims commit suicide, which plays perfectly into the younger generation’s grimdark sense of humor.

Woman tries to walk in ridiculous high heels, breaks every part of her body

Ever watch a video so powerful it makes you simultaneously scream out loud, want to barf, and vow to solely wear nothing but flat shoes for the rest of your life?
No? Well I regret to inform you that you’re about to.
This absolutely cursed video making the rounds on social media shows things going terribly wrong after a woman tries on massive red high heeled shoes in a clothing store. As one might guess, she falls. But it’s so much worse than that. The way in which her body contorts itself is a complete freaking nightmare.

40 easy (and free) ways to feel festive this holiday season

There’s a lot of pressure around the holiday season. It’s full of things for which it’s easy to have overblown expectations — New Year’s Eve, for example, and the unintentional friendship quality metric known as “giving gifts.” Not helping: the state of the world, which is bad.
It’s understandable, then, if you’re not feeling particularly festive. This year, I’ve struggled to get into the holiday spirit (whatever that is) and my lack of excitement is matched only by my guilt for its absence. It’s Christmas!
