Adam Levine Goes Platinum Blonde

Monday, May 5, 2014

So it's a slow news day in the world when the top story is a celebrity and their hair—But this definitely is newsworthy for all the wrong reasons. 35 year-old Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine debuted his platinum blonde Miley Cyrus hair job today, to some pretty mixed opinions.

To me, Adam's hair looks like a peroxide wildfire. But.... I sorta like it. Just don't tell anyone!

Look At This Freaking Place: Tianzi Mountain Range

Sunday, May 4, 2014

You might look at the Tianzi Mountain range of China and think they look just a little too familiar. That might be because this gorgeous mountain range was the inspiration for the Hallelujah floating mountains in the movie 'Avatar.'

It's thought that these mountains were formed by the erosion of previously larger mountains—not necessarily by water like the Grand Canyon, but by frost and wind. However it may have happened, it has created a truly breathtaking natural formation.

Squirrel Isn't Very Fond Of Selfies

Friday, May 2, 2014

Sometimes it's just hard to get a good selfie— and that is something a Maine teen learned all too well while trying to take a picture with a resident rodent.

The unidentified teen described his harrowing ordeal:

"I approached it making a clicking noise with my tongue; phone drawn,” he said. “When I got close enough, the squirrel actually tried grabbing my phone. I shook it off, then snapped this photo.”
Luckily, Mom was there to snap a photo of the aftermath:

Do You Like Prostitution? There's An App For That!

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

After being legalized in 2002, Germany's prostitution industry has turned into a 20 billion-dollar a year business—and it looks like the world's oldest profession is getting a modern-day upgrade with a mobile app called "Peppr."

Peppr is an app that connects those with... needs, with women and men who are willing to fulfill them for a price. The format of the app is similar to that of a dating site/app. After a user registers and confirms they are at least 18 years old, they are able to browse photos and profiles of their potential new friend.

Co-founder of the app, German native Pia Poppenreiter said she was struck by inspiration one night while taking a jaunt through a shady part of town-
“I was walking down Oranienburger Strasse – I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s the truth – it was chilly and I saw the poor girls on the streets, and I thought, why isn't there an app? It’s not efficient to wait outside,”
This is apparently an attempt to tidy up the image of prostitution—as if 'Pretty Woman' didn't already. Poppenreieter says this app will "revolutionize the image of sex work." Now if Groupon were smart, they would get in on the ground floor and start offering "buy one broad, get one free" coupons ASAP.

'Natural' Energy Drink Banned For Causing Erections

Friday, April 18, 2014

MosKa, a "natural" energy drink, might be the perfect product for you if you are low on energy, and low on erections. Recently banned in Australia, MosKa was found to have an unlisted ingredient, namely Levitra, in higher than prescription doses. MosKa is marketed as a natural performance and libido enhancer, due to ingredients such as Siberian Ginseng and Red Ginseng. However, these ingredients combined with Levitra have made MosKa a potentially dangerous product—there have even been reports of impotence and heart attack.
