10 Things You Should Never Say To Your Pregnant Friends Betches

So, your friend is totes preggers. It’s kind of the end of an era. No more carefree blackouts and one-nighters. More diapers, less mascara, and basically zero free time. Regardless of how your bestie is doing while a human tapeworm essentially hijacks her body, there are some things you just don’t ask or say once she tells you the news. It’s 2019 and I shouldn’t have to list these out, but being almost five months pregnant myself, I’ve found that people really, truly, have no sense of decorum when they see a baby on board. I’ve been taken aback multiple times at the things people have said and, for the record, I am not easily offended (hence why I write …

The family were asleep in their home in Osborne Road, Birkby, when petrol was poured through the letterbox and petrol bombs were put through the window in the early hours of 12 May 2002. Mohammed, who was extradited to the UK last year, claimed he had “only been the lookout” for the attack throughout his five-week trial.

Florida Change Their Kill Iguanas “Whenever Possible” Policy After Pool Boy Mistaken For Lizard Gets Shot

Earlier this month, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) issued a statement urging people to “kill green iguanas on their own property whenever possible.” “Green iguanas (Iguana iguana) are an invasive species in Florida and are not native to our state,” they explained in a now-updated website post. “They can cause considerable damage to infrastructure, including seawalls and sidewalks. This species is not protected in Florida except by anti-cruelty law.” The post went on to say that “the FWC encourages homeowners to humanely kill green iguanas on their own property whenever possible. Iguanas can also be killed year-round and without a permit on 22 public lands in south Florida,” Huffington Post reports.

WIRED Book of the Month: It Came From Something Awful

Any page of It Came From Something Awful would be the most shocking page of most books. Reading Dale Beran’s chronicle of 4chan, the anonymous imageboard where some of the internet’s worst scandals have been fomented, feels like scrolling through the forum itself. Each page turn sucks you ever deeper into chan culture, from emoticon cats telling you to “Please die” to harassment campaigns levied at adolescent girls to a man describing how he murdered his girlfriend. “Turns out it’s way harder to strangle someone to death than it looks in the movies,” that man said, alongside images of the woman’s dead body. Eventually, in Beran’s aggrandizing telling, 4chan’s crescendo of furious nihilism delivers President Trump to America. In 2017, …

Image credits: One Twitter user, Kaeden ““I hate any company that tries to exploit the already poor-as-shit creator community, as I myself am a member of that group. However, I have a particular case of the ass against Adobe. Adobe, to me, symbolizes everything I hate about both capitalism and Western civilization’s complete disregard of the arts and humanities as not just valuable, but necessary parts of life.” But …

Belgian woman survives after spending 6 days trapped in crashed car

Corine Bastide, 45, disappeared near Liège, Belgium on July 23 after her vehicle swerved into a ditch in an isolated location; she injured her spine and was rendered her helpless. The crashed happened just two days before temperatures hit 107 degrees Fahrenheit. (AP) Every time Bastide moved her arms to try to escape, she would lose consciousness. Eventually, after mustering enough strength, she managed to use her foot to open the car door. “The most difficult thing was lying on pieces of glass,” she said. “I tried to hoist myself up but I had the impression that my back was being torn.” Without food or drink in the vehicle, Bastide survived by drinking rainwater in an empty chewing gum box. She …

Ancient Artists Created Giant Magnetic Heads From Rock Struck By Lightning

These chubby-faced stone sculptures, carved some 2,000 years ago in current-day Guatemala, suggest that the ancient Mesoamericans had a sharp understanding of magnetism, perhaps even using the force for artistic or spiritual effect.  After being brought from ancient sites in the Monte Alto region of Guatemala during the 1970s, the sculptures are now in the town of La Democracia, near Guatemala’s Pacific coast.  Reporting in the Journal of Archaeological Science earlier this year, scientists from Havard University explain that the sculptures contain magnetic anomalies on their surfaces. At least 10 of the 11 sculptures, all of which depict a plump face or a buxom body, have some kind of significant magnetic anomaly. Strangest of all, magnetic mapping has shown that magnetism can only be found …

Administrators appointed to Harland and Wolff

After the administrators were appointed on Monday, workers said their protest would continue. At a press conference, trade unionists representing staff warned they will stand against the DUP in a forthcoming general election if the party does not do more to support workers. Image caption DUP MP Gavin Robinson said government intervention would conflict with state aid rules The MP said Harland and Wolff had asked the government for shortfall funding of £650,000, which would have given the company “breathing space” for the month of August “so that they could explore other options”.
