The release of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer pretty much broke the Internet due to the rabid nature of the franchise’s fans.

Regardless, they probably made you look.
Spay and neuter your pets, people.

Prom season means two things: 1) restaurants will be filled with gawky teens who can’t afford their meal because they spent all their babysitting money on a dress or tux, and 2) awkward photos that capture the essence of being a teen.

We all make fun of The Clapper because we don’t want to admit that sometimes doing the simplest of tasks is exhausting. But in today’s society of instant gratification and technology, the quest to relieve people of these tasks is becoming increasingly normal — and increasingly ridiculous.

Everyone knows that animals are capable of receiving love and affection, and that there are countless stories of them being rescued from shelters or dire situations by compassionate humans. But in these cases, we’re highlighting the fact that they’re also capable of returning the favor by showing bravery and rescuing humans in extraordinary ways.
