Winter Is Making People Crazy in Boston. But This Guy Has a Solution…

Feb 25, 2015 By Abraham 0

Back in 2005, Boston legalized “parking space saving.”

What is parking space saving? Exactly what it sounds like. When there’s a snowstorm, if you shovel out a place to park, you are allowed to put your garbage can in the spot when you’re not using it so that there’s a place for you when you come back…

Judging by Their Note Home, This Day Care Has Never Met a Baby

Feb 25, 2015 By Abraham 0

Even though babies are adept at looking like they want to kill you, it’s fairly safe to assume that they don’t actually want to. They have a fairly limited set of desires and destroying other people isn’t generally considered by professionals to be among them.

Of course this doesn’t mean that they’re full of kindness and beneficence, either. They don’t want to hurt anybody, but they’re not particularly empathetic either.

Not everyone seems to be aware of this blance, however, as is evidenced by a note that was recently sent home from day care along with 9-month-old Baby Samantha. It’s nothing short of absurd…

Note from Daycare

Via: Babble

Transcription…

Samantha has been playing roughly and aggressively with the other babies; they will be crying and upset but she is smiling and enjoying herself — even our using firm voices to tell her it’s not OK to hurt her friends and remove her from area, she is smiling and going right back. Can you help us out by maybe discouraging her to not play roughly with her friends and her dog.

Thanks

What?! A baby who doesn’t notice that other babies are crying and who just wants to laugh and play?

Shocking, I know.

This couple’s engagement was recorded for the world to see when the boyfriend went to take a selfie and pretended not to realize he’d started a video. After “noticing” that it was recording, he just kept it rolling.

How he got the footage is fun enough, but it’s their performances after the real action starts that makes this video the sweetest thing you’ll see today…

How Is the Swimsuit Issue Still a Thing in this Day and Age with All Its…Possibilities

Feb 17, 2015 By Abraham 0

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue began in an era not exactly known for its progressive and positive views on women, and yet it continues. But even putting sexism aside for a moment, the success and even existence of Sports Illustrated’s February issue makes no sense.

Practically speaking, why are people buying this magazine in such huge numbers? There’s a ridiculous amount of competition even just among other printed publications. And then there’s the internet. (I think there might be people wearing swimsuits on the internet.)

But still the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue thrives. Strange.
