The Internet Does Not Believe You’re Pregnant

In late February of the year 1456, an apprentice named John Helton was drawn, hanged, and quartered for spreading the claim that Edward of Westminster was not Queen Margaret’s son. Queen Margaret, the rumor went, had faked her pregnancy, so the 2-year-old posing as the Prince of Wales must be either a random nonroyal toddler or a changeling. More than half a millennium later, conspiracy theorists are still preoccupied with the wombs of royal women. Now, the supposed pretender to the pregnancy is Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. Anti-Markle internet sleuths, who call themselves #Megxiteers, have stared at pictures of the expecting duchess so long and hard that they’ve become convinced her baby bump is a prosthetic called a Moonbump—and …

Why are trypophobics scared of crumpets?

She gets nauseous – sometimes heaving at the sight of holes – and has recurring nightmares of holes appearing in her skin and face. It is not just crumpets which trigger the reaction, although she says they are her first memory of having trypophobia. She is similarly averse to objects such as sponges or pumice stones as well as things with bubbles or bumps, such as skin rashes. “I cooked an omelette last night and there were too many holes in it,” she says. “I couldn’t eat it. I love omelettes but now I’m wondering whether I can eat another omelette again. I sometimes cook pancakes but I have to look away. “I can laugh about it because it’s not …

Vegan Asks People To Try Hunting Animals And Eating Them Raw In Order To See How Unnatural It Is For Humans, Gets Roasted Badly

With an extremely graphic photo, they tried to argue that ‘catching prey’ and eating it was not as natural as a vegan lifestyle and got shut down by a commenter happy to give them a quick lesson in the evolution of our diets. One response to the photo stood out in particular. Linden Lonsdale explained that meat had been a necessary evolution of our ancestors that provided them with the caloric content needed for advanced brain development, and the lesson didn’t stop there. According to scientists today this commenter has a point. We wouldn’t be what we are today without meat to a degree, however, as evolutionary creatures our stomachs have changed alongside us.

Confusion and blame in Sri Lanka after bloody Easter Sunday attacks

Colombo, Sri Lanka (CNN)One day after a devastating series of attacks on hotels and churches across Sri Lanka, another explosion blew out windows in the residential street in central Colombo and knocked a security officer off his feet. More than 300 people have been reported dead in the attacks, with hundreds more injured. As the death toll threatens to rise even further, Sri Lankan officials have veered from promising to pull the nation together, to tearing each other down. The country was split by a political crisis last year, when President Maithripala Sirisena attempted to replace the incumbent Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe, with a favored candidate. Wickremesinghe was reinstated in December after the intervention of the Supreme Court. There appear …

What Living With Insomnia Is Really Like Betches

This might just come out as a rambling of complaining, seeing as it’s 5:15am and, as you can probably guess from the title, I have not slept. I apologize in advance if that’s what this is, and thank anyone for reading. I’ve had issues falling asleep since probably my junior year in college, but only in the past year has it gotten so bad that I’m actually worried about it (and writing about it). In college, there would be a few times where, even though I was in bed and tired, I didn’t fall asleep until between 2am-4am. Melatonin didn’t work, no matter how many times I took it. I’m sure sometimes I even took more than you’re supposed to …

Fears of Terminator robot uprising sparked after scientists create creepy lifelike machines that can eat, grow and evolve

Eventually, they age and die, a level of lifelike complexity never before seen in robots.

The Latest Viral Challenge Is Slightly Dangerous, Dumb As Hell And Admittedly Quite Funny

We’ve had the challenge where everybody ate laundry detergent for some reason, we’ve had the challenge where everybody consumed dry cinnamon powder because they enjoyed coughing(?), and we’ve even had the “boiling water challenge“, which is basically just felony assault with the word “challenge” attached for legal reasons.  In comparison to some of those, this new challenge honestly doesn’t seem too bad, but it’s still a bit dangerous and quite dumb. The new “shell on” challenge involves eating things that are food while they’re still in their packaging (which isn’t food), for… honestly we’ve got no idea. We’ll admit it is kind of funny when it’s just food. – – – – However, there have been some reports of people videoing …

I Ate Like Kourtney Kardashian For 3 Days & Here’s What I Learned Betches

Welcome back for another installment of the Fad Diet Diaries, a series in which I slowly but surely destroy my already fragile relationship with food, one dumb celebrity regimen at a time. The celebrity in question this time around is one Kourtney Kardashian, a woman who manages to look better middle-aged and after three children than I looked at 21 and before I discovered Postmates. Today is Kourtney’s 41st birthday (not that you’ll be able to tell by anything about her), and in honor of that I did the only thing I know how to do: emulate her diet and then complain about it. These are my stories. While this particular diet was short-lived, a mere three days, my journey …

Food stamps recipients can now order groceries online for delivery. Amazon, Walmart and ShopRite will offer the service

New York (CNN Business)Walmart, Amazon and grocery chains like ShopRite hope to tap into a lucrative new market: Food stamp recipients who want to shop for groceries online.

But the move also opens up the market to online retailers. “People who receive SNAP benefits should have the opportunity to shop for food the same way more and more Americans shop for food — by ordering and paying for groceries online,” said Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. “As technology advances, …
