You see that dog right there? That's about to be all of us in an hour. Let this little fur ball be your guiding light into a weekend filled with margaritas, barbecue, and unlimited sexy neck and back massages.
Oh my god, dad, you're so embarrassing.
Many of you may have watched the video that Daniel Ashley Pierce, a man coming out to his family, posted on YouTube. The video, which was heartbreaking to say the least, was of Daniel trying to make his parents understand him while they disowned and physically assaulted him. But there's some good news.
In today's Tweet Beat, Clinton Kelly expressing a dissenting opinion about President Obama's summer suit, (I too did not mind it—sue me) Ruben Studdard has a very short attention span and Ricky Gervais gets the party started.
Imgur, the photo-hosting site that is a direct feeder to Reddit is an excellent way to waste some time. It features awesome pictures and some pretty funny commentary. But it's also home to misogyny and some disturbing treatment of women, and one user is standing up to the catcalls and threats of dick pics with overwhelming support.
I cannot tell a lie: I am a huge Britney Spears fan. I may not be into some of the deeper cuts, but I watched all of Chaotic, rooted for her recovery and I didn't completely disagree when Chris Crocker told everyone to leave her alone. It's pretty sad, then, that Britney's dad had to buy a video of her boyfriend cheating on her and then showed it to her.
If humans do their best work after a good night’s sleep, then naps have to be included in there too, right? University of Michigan has taken that advice to the mattresses and invested in sleep pods for their students so they’ll never stop working. Go Blue!

Every week, we'll provide a prompt, you'll share stories, and we'll pick a winner that's featured in the next week's post. It's like a pyramid scheme of outdoing each other!
Brian Jones, a Marine Corps veteran and the editor-in-chief of Task & Purpose, is tired of military leaders' indifference to systemic online sexism.
Oh, cool. A devastating end to a shithead summer. Five-year-old Malachi Wilson, a member of the Navajo Nation, was sent home from his first day at a Texas kindergarten for having hair that was deemed "too long." Wilson's mother, April, says that her son was devastated by the encounter. And, seeing as Wilson keeps his hair long for religious reasons, the school could be in deep shit.
Someone bought a 33 year old piece of cake, but it’s OK because it was from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding. Does that information makes this purchase acceptable? Oh and that stale sweet cost $1,375.
A church in Wilkes-Barre, PA is putting some sex positive words in God's mouth. The Restored Church recently paid for a billboard along Route 309 emblazoned with the words: "'I love sex.' -God." Oh God, doesn't everyone?
You've probably heard of Andrew Lohse, or at least about what Andrew Lohse has told you about being excessively hazed by the brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon , the fraternity he was part of at Dartmouth College . Lohse got famous in 2012 for publishing a tell-all about the disgusting antics he and his fraternity brothers took part in and now he's written a book about it called Confessions of an Ivy League Frat Boy. The title is accurate: there are lots of frat boys in the book but very few women. So why is Andrew Lohse being heralded as a "frat boy turned feminist"?
Dominic West is just as curious about Idris Elba’s maybe it is, maybe it isn't penis photo as we are. He even talked about it at great length (heh … ) in an interview. Of course Elba says the bump in the photo is just a microphone cord. OK, Idris.
There's something bittersweet about a physical trait you've been made fun of for your whole life finally coming into fashion. On one hand, not only are you free from ridicule, but you're being celebrated! On the other, the people who've always looked down on you are now trying to cop your look and act like those years of mocking NEVER EVEN HAPPENED.
Heavens be, how was this not common knowledge? Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei made a romantic comedy called The Rewrite. Grant stars as a washed up screenwriter forced to take a job as as college professor to make ends meet and Tomei plays his student. Yup, sounds about right.
We knew it was coming and now it’s happened; protestors are suing the city of Ferguson, St. Louis Country and police officials in Missouri for violating their civil rights with tanks, rubber bullets and tear gas earlier this month. America, fuck yeah!
Female meteorologists, much like women in every other profession and walk of life, have to put up with a lot of crap from sexist men who think they can do or say whatever they please without repercussions. One guy who got lippy with ABC News meteorologist Ginger Zee this morning got what he deserved.
An ongoing study is making a case for tall lady/short fella couplings. The new research out of NYU and the University of Michigan suggests that tying the knot with a man who's shorter than you could potentially mean greater longterm relationship success.
Johns Hopkins University is one the 76 American colleges and universities under federal investigation for mishandling rape allegations. Like so many of the schools that have come under fire in the past year, JHU has publicly paid lip service to fixing its polices — but student activists are skeptical that the changes being made are actually effective.
