Relatively few people in America sleep in their cars, even rarely. For those who do, the nation’s largest retailer is accommodating.
One fierce mountain lion took a break from serious lioning recently, showing off its “goofy” side while playing like a kitty cat on a trail camera. The hilarious kitty-cat moment came as the Colorado mountain lion realized that the log under which it was resting was actually the seat to a tree swing.
It's a phantom that swept across the internet and left almost as soon as it arrived – the 'Momo challenge hoax' is one of the most fascinating internet phenomena of recent times. Back in 2019, in the heady days before the arrival of the pandemic, you might remember an influx of creepy images of a terrifying, wide-eyed woman with a sinister air being everywhere online. That was Momo, an internet boogeywoman at the centre of a media storm, who gained infamy for inspiring an ‘evil suicide game’ that sparked widespread fear and superstition.It’s easy to see why – just looking...
The FDA is warning teenagers against trying “Nyquil chicken.” This involves marinating chicken in the over the counter cold medicine, cooking it, and eating it. Whether anyone has ever actually done this is unclear, but users on TikTok have been sharing—and mocking—a chicken recipe that calls for you to cook the meat in Nyquil. (The resulting dish is also known as “sleepy chicken.”) Although it’s already difficult to find content related to the recipe—notably, many of the recipe videos that other users are responding to have been deleted—typing “nyquil” into the search bar in TikTok brings up several search terms related to the recipe, like “nyquil chick” or “nyquil chicekn.” Some of the videos making fun of the recipe also already have a flag from TikTok on them that reads “Participating in this activity could result in you or others getting hurt.”

Every weekend, I adopt a triage mindset for all of my possible plans—clean the apartment, go to dinner, sleuth Facebook Marketplace—and at the top of that list, in the most aspirational of tiers, is the fantasy of taking a full spa day. It’s not outside the realm of possibility, but heading to SoJo Spa Club every weekend just isn’t in my budget. I would gladly take up residency in the club’s pool of carbonated water/Topo Chico, but no one is asking me to do that (yet). I crave the hot rocks, the hinoki baths, and the endless influx of fresh, warm towels. But most of all, I want the sauna.
The home decor shopping algorithm has been such a dime as of late. If you’ve been deep diving into social media apps’ influencer homes, shopping tabs, and hashtags, chances are, you’ve come across the recent resurgence of disco ball decor. The 70s called, and the decade is selling us all their disco balls that’ve been hanging pretty in storage. TikTok has taught us that disco balls don’t have to hang on the ceiling (although we do happily welcome them there) and that the 1970s himbo aesthetic has creeped its way back into the fashion world, while Instagram’s notoriously spot-on shopping algo has started populating our feed with all manner of mirrored objects. Independent sellers and retailers have caught on, and are capitalizing off our dire need for disco energy by making their own variations. Thrifted knick knacks, stained rugs, a painting your mom gifted you from that wine and paint class—that decor feels positively drab next to a glimmering globe. We want our living quarters to dazzle and shine like something straight outta Soul Train.
Stupid-hot deals on all of our favorite stuff. It’s officially fall, folks. Sweating our balls off on the subway or while walking to get our morning baconeggandcheese is getting old. And the seasonal change couldn’t have come soon enough; we’re more than ready for Home Depot’s 12-foot skeletons, late nights with Ouija boards, cringe super-chic socks with pumpkins on them, and all the fall deals just itching to hop into our shopping carts. Retailers don’t make all that festive home decor for nothing, and we will not allow all the soccer moms to snag it before us. Except maybe those “Bless This Mess” signs—they can happily cop those.

Trekking up a big mountain is no small feat. You need to have solid cardiovascular health, watch your footing when maneuvering over gravel and logs, and have a game plan in the event that you come face-to-face with an animal that could eat you as a mid-afternoon snack. It can be daunting if you’re a newbie, but I’m all about living life on the edge—and hey, you’ve gotta get off your laptop sometimes and bump fists with nature.
