Can you guess what all these middle-aged women have in common?

August 28, 2014 | No comments

Several months ago, a few dozen women, mostly middle-aged and few who were older, convened because of one fact that is true for all of them. Photographer Robyn Twomey had the opportunity to join them and take some portraits.

As you scroll through, see if you can tell what it is that they all have in common…

6-year-old Brit criticizes grocery chain’s label. Look at the new one they let him draw…

August 28, 2014 | 1 comment

Young Harry Deverill was confused about the packaging on a bottle of sauce he had put on his breakfast sandwich, so he did something about it.

In a letter to British supermarket chain Waitrose’s managing director, Harry said he didn’t think their label made any sense.

Dear Mark Price,

I am writing as the other morning I had Waitrose essential Brown Sauce with my bacon sandwiches. I asked Daddy what the picture is of on the label. Daddy didn’t know and neither do I. Please could you let me know. Mummy says I am good at drawing so if you would like me to draw a new picture for the label I would be happy to.

Kind regards, Harry Deverill, aged 6.

Admittedly, the artwork on the original label was a bit confusing…

So rather than try to explain what was supposed to be on the label, Waitrose took Harry up on his offer to draw the label himself. The young boy’s rendition of a complete English breakfast now decorates a limited edition run of Waitrose Essential Brown Sauce bottles…

Irish MMA warrior talks about his violent ancestry and what homeless guys taught him about fighting

August 28, 2014 | No comments

At 5’8″ and 145 pounds, Conor McGregor is a small man. But you’d hardly know it by his presence in the UFC’s Octagon. Still, that’s not the Conor McGregor that Fightland and Sailor Jerry are getting to know here.

Conor McGregor

In their new series “Title Shots,” they are giving viewers a one-of-a-kind look at what’s going in the minds of fighters rather than only looking at what’s going on in the octagon. In this first episode, we visit Venice Beach with Irish UFC featherweight Conor McGregor to learn how his obsession with movement has shaped his fighting style. And not just his obsession with movement, but also his violent irish ancestry and an unlikely conversation with two homeless guys…

The most American grill ever can cook 100 hotdogs and includes (of course) a Mount Rushmore replica

August 27, 2014 | No comments

There are few activities more American than a summer cookout, and the two most important pieces of a cookout are a grill and a piece of meat to cook on it. You’ve already bypassed the nasty “what’s in those?!” hot dogs for something that actually tastes like meat, but what about your grill?

In promotion of their new premium hot dog, Ball Park teamed up with Destination America and Discovery to create what just might be the best grill known to man…or known to American man, anyway.

First of all, everything about this work of art screams “America!” starting with the table, featuring George Washington…on a bald eagle…carrying a hotdog…

You have $1000 for rent. Here’s how much apartment you can get across the country…

August 26, 2014 | 1 comment

A handful of cash is worth a very different amount depending on where in the country you happen to be holding it. You’ll get a lot more in Mississippi, for instance, than you will in California.

And, of course, this same principle applies to rent. You can get a LOT more apartment in Cleveland than you can in New York. Everybody knows this, but thanks to a comparison from BuzzFeed based on stats from Zillow, we can see exactly how much of a difference there is across the country…

Football fan loses BIG in Twitter bet he can’t pay. Michael Sam bails him out and everybody wins…

Betting and sports don’t mix, but that doesn’t stop people from making absurd wagers on everything from the final score to…well, this…

When two of the NFL’s most talked-about rookies met in a preseason game on Saturday night, people paid a lot more attention than they normally do to games that are relatively meaningless.

And when one of those rookies, St. Louis Rams defensive end Michael Sam, sacked the other rookie, Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, Sam had a little fun with it…

Johnny Manziel — perhaps better known as Johnny Football — has a trademark celebration where he rubs his fingers together in a money sign. As the video above shows, Sam playfully mocked Manziel with the gesture after sacking the controversial quarterback.

All of this was humorous enough without a curious Twitter bet that had been made earlier in the day by New Yorker Fisher King

At the Emmys last night, Billy Crystal got a chance to briefly commemorate Robin Williams. He shared several stories of how the man combined deep friendship with ridiculous humor…
