  • "Lettuce Jam" Is the Perfect Use for That Last Sad Bit of Greenery
    I hate to sound melodramatic, but lettuce and I are enemies. It’s not that I don’t like eating salad—I do—it’s that I never eat salad fast enough before my lettuce gets “weird,” as in “not technically inedible but kind of limp and not-so-fresh looking.” This makes me feel like a failure, and I hate failure. Luckily, …Read more...

    Headlines say the job market is improving, but it’s more likely that it’s just changing—the gig economy has saved workers from unemployment, but it’s also kept a lot of them from earning a full-time wage. Speaking of which, wage growth is in the toilet. It’s not all doom and gloom, though. There’s good news for new…Read more...

  • تازهSee this incredible full circle rainbow
    Someone on a crane captured this stunning video of a full circle rainbow. Unfortunately most of us never get a chance to see circle rainbows because the ground interrupts. Here's an explanation from Phil "Bad Astronomy" Plait in Slate:...To see a rainbow, you face away from the Sun (180°), then look about 42° away from that point (180°–138°). The drops in an arc along that angle will then bend the light back toward you, and you get a rainbow, with the colors spread out a bit because they bend by different amounts.Oh, wait. Did I say “arc”? Because technically, any raindrop 42° away from the anti-solar point (ooh, fancy science-speak again) will bend the light back to you. We see rainbows in the sky because in general the ground is close to you. When we look up toward the sky we see for a long way, and there are lots of raindrops along your eyeline that can add their light together to make the rainbow. When you look down, the ground gets in the way, there aren’t a…

  • تازهMeet Anatomic Anna and Andy, dolls with removable organs
    It's a shame that these didn't exist when my daughter was a little girl. I think she would have loved playing with them. Why? Because these unusual dolls have removable organs.Designed for 4 to 12 year olds, Anatomic Anna and Andy are the brainchildren of a London-based homeschooling mother who wanted to further her kids' STEM education but could only find anatomical models made for medical students. So, she made her own.Through her company, Little Boffins - Learn Through Play, she's kickstarting the two dolls. One doll, either male or female, costs £50 (about $64). By the way, I couldn't help but notice that they resemble American Girl dolls. So, I checked their height. Like AG dolls, Anna and Andy also stand 18" tall. Given that, I'm guessing AG doll clothes will fit this gut-spilling duo too.Thanks, Joyce!(BabyCenter)

  • تازهIconic (and super creepy) Clown Motel is up for sale
    Between Las Vegas and Reno, there is a sleeping establishment like no other. It's simply called The Clown Motel and it's been deemed "America's scariest motel." In 2014, Cory described it as follows:Hundreds of clowns stare from every corner, the walls are hung with clown-portraits, and there is a "historic miners' cemetery" out the motel's back door, wherein rest the mouldering corpses of the victims of a mysterious epidemic that is only known as "Tonopah plague." Now it can be yours for $900,000. According to LasVegasNow.com, the motel's current owner (of 22 years) Bob Perchetti is selling it so he can retire, "I'm going to go fishing. I want to go enjoy myself. I'm going to do a little camping with the grandkids."One condition of the sale: "the new owners can upgrade it but don't lose what the people love." Wait, does that mean the clowns or the corpses? Either way, no thank you.
