According to this new video from Vox, it pays to be pretty. Literally.
Throughout life, people who are more conventionally attractive apparently receive more benefits than their less lovely looking counterparts. Starting with our parents at birth, beautiful people get all the perks. Of course there are a few drawbacks, especially for females, but for the most part it seems to be smooth sailing. Take a look.
Ugh, plain old normos like me can’t help but kinda feel bitter. But hey, at least we have a great personality.

Consuming dairy is part of many of our daily lives, whether it comes in the form of milk in cereal and coffee in the morning or the cheddar on your grilled cheese sandwich.
While much has been done to expose some of the disgusting ways the meat industry operates, many think that because dairy cows are kept alive that they must fare better. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case, and it raises real ethical questions about the products we consume.
Dairy farmers often use a tool called hip clamps to help stabilize cows that are temporarily unable to stand.
SAFE, a New Zealand-based animal welfare organization, describes how hip clamps should be used. They note, “Hip clamps should not be left on any longer than 10 minutes and should be loosened and then removed as soon as the cow is bearing weight. They should be put on over light padding. The hip clamps themselves should also be padded using plastic, rubber, or foam tubing.”
For those of us who don’t live in or around deserts, it’s almost impossible to imagine the intensity and sheer scale of a real sandstorm. These things, while not as famously terrifying as tornados, can reach massive sizes and wreak their own special brand of havoc. For proof, just take a look at the video below.
It features the crew of a big rig truck somewhere in China (likely the Gobi Desert). They were transporting a large piece of machinery when they came across a massive sandstorm. Instead of driving through it or turning around, they stopped, got out, and shot some video.
I’ll agree that it looks pretty amazing, but I wouldn’t want to be out in the open when one of these things rolled in.
Typically, the only thing you should put in the microwave is food. But if you put Ivory soap in the microwave for one to two minutes, something amazing happens. Because Ivory soap has pockets of air and water inside of it, a solid bar of soap turns into a fluffy soap soufflé right in front of your eyes when heated. Your kids are sure to be amazed by this fun science experiment. Plus, your kitchen will smell like it just took a shower. Watch the video below to find out why this crazy phenomenon happens.
After the soap has been microwaved, it’s still totally useable. In fact, you might even conserve more soap by using less in the shower. Pretty cool, huh?!
Cats are one of the great joys in life (and on the Internet).
You may have seen every funny cat video out there from angry kittens to excitable balls of fluff, but unless you’ve seen cats trying to walk around in socks, you haven’t truly lived. And even if you have seen cats in socks, a compilation of many cats in many socks is a laugh-out-loud funny way to remind yourself just how much you love your furry friends.
I dare you to try to keep a straight face while these kitties try to figure out how their feet work again.
The left is obsessed with taking strong words and robbing them of their real meaning. “Racism” and “hate” are now applied to simple disagreement. With all the talk condemning “rape culture” are they minimizing the real crime of rape? Steven Crowder tackles the issue (and —shudder— plays Lena Dunham again) in his latest video.
New video up tonight! Will be taking @lenadunham to task and addressing our plaguing "rape culture" problem.
With new buildings being constructed every day all across the globe, Mother Nature is slowly dying thanks to urbanization.
The towering apartment building below was in need of serious repairs, so when city officials got wind of some pretty gusty weather coming their way, they feared that the structure might collapse. They had the building evacuated, and it’s a good thing they did.
As you can see below, Mother Nature is determined to prove that she won’t go down without a fight. The day after the evacuation, strong winds sent the apartment building tumbling to the ground. Luckily, no one was injured in the windy demolition.
Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a tradition for many families.
I always remember having the parade on the tiny television in my grandparents’ kitchen while I was enlisted to chop or prepare something for our big meal. My sister and I would pick out our favorites from the legendary balloons. It’s nostalgic.
For one grandma, the parade has huge significance. Grandma Boop had been trying to be in the parade for more than 30 years, and on her 83rd birthday, her kids gave her the surprise of a lifetime.
She doesn’t know what to think or believe at first, but when she gets it, the look on her face is priceless.
