Hero driver rescues possum being harassed by two birds

TwitterFacebook

No one likes a bully.

Especially Laurence Kirk in Sydney, Australia, who decided to take matters into his own hands when he spotted two magpies giving a possum on the road a hard time.

Beeping the confrontation didn’t seem to work, so Kirk decides to hop out and deal with the matter — taking the possum off the road and escorting it back into nature. What a guy. Read more…

Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga Reveal the Night They Want to Last Forever

Celebrities pop up almost every day that’s why time is the ultimate test for those we call stars. I wouldn’t be making a brave proclamation if I say Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga fall into the latter category. Around three years after their first movie, Starting Over Again, they’re back at it with Last Night. […]

What’s the New Nickname for the 21st Century Sugar Daddy?

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. “Sugar Daddy” is so last season. “Benefactor” is such a dispassionate and archaic term. Long overdue is a fittingly New Age appellation for that other tale as old as time, […]

Insane Clown Posse’s Juggalo March takes to the D.C. National Mall, and the photos are epic

TwitterFacebook

When the FBI published its 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment, the report drew ire for an unusual new addition: Juggalos, the fanbase of Detroit hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse.

Now, 6 years later and still classified by the FBI as a gang, ICP fans descended on Washington D.C. for the Juggalo March, a coming-together of music fans looking to peacefully protest a classification they feel is unjust.

The march took place on Saturday at D.C.’s National Mall, and according to The Hill, hundreds gathered to take a stand.

Conan addresses your pressing questions about the iPhone X’s facial recognition system

TwitterFacebook

You’ll probably have plenty of queries (or you’ll be making the same joke) around the iPhone X‘s new and slightly creepy facial recognition feature, Face ID.

While you’re not going to get your own answered by this Conan video, at least it poses some questions you might have wanted to ask Apple about Face ID, like if it “works with the butt” and whether you can use a photo of someone’s face or just their whole head.

But hey, at least they nailed the hairstyle of Apple’s Craig Federighi. Read more…

Bride’s doughnut bouquets are a wedding treat we could really go for

TwitterFacebook

There are many tough decisions to be made when it comes to organising a wedding. But honestly, there’s one easy choice: doughnuts.

Specifically, we’re talking doughnut bouquets, which made an appearance at the wedding of Australian bride Paige Kirk, replacing traditional flower arrangements.

“Me and my husband Steven thought it would be different, fun and lighthearted,” Kirk told BBC News.

Get ready for a Trump book from your favorite White House reporters

TwitterFacebook

Two of the New York Times’ most dogged White House reporters are reportedly coauthoring a new book on President Donald Trump. 

I wouldn’t mark it on a list of holiday presents to buy, though, because it’s unclear when this thing is gonna publish.

The Random House book will reportedly be “about the first years of the Trump administration.” “Years,” presumably, means this thing may not hit shelves for quite some time. 

Been trying to confirm this 100% for days. Just announced, @maggieNYT and @GlennThrush have a deal with Random House for a Trump book: pic.twitter.com/djToHODhph

Why Comparing Kylie Jenner to Rihanna Supports a Vicious Cycle

Ted Cruz just liked a super NSFW tweet and people are cringing so hard

TwitterFacebook

You know some intern’s going to cop the blame for this.

A very NSFW video is going viral on Twitter, (no) thanks to Ted Cruz’s official Twitter account. The Texas senator and former U.S. presidential hopeful liked a pretty graphic two-minute long video from @SexuallPosts.

With over 3 million followers, the like from Cruz’s verified account would have pushed the video to the news feeds of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of his followers’ timelines.

As Tuesday morning, the like was still prominently atop Cruz’s account. Read more…

Donald Trump Jr. doesn’t seem to know which way framed photos of your children should face

TwitterFacebook

Donald Trump Jr. loves his children so much that he doesn’t actually look at them all day. 

The father of five was pictured sitting at his desk in Trump Tower, contemplating his fate in a New York Times article earlier this week about his meeting with Senate investigators over his ties to Russia. 

On Saturday, however, Twitter noticed something odd about the photo, taken in February. 

I, too, casually arrange photographs of my 100 children to face outwards so I can only see the backs of frames pic.twitter.com/Pa0cHP5ayj
