Comments are off for this post.
Sanitary towel and tampon ads don't exactly portray periods in the most realistic way. If it's not strange-looking blue liquid being poured on pads, it's women jumping around splashing each other for reasons that remain unknown to us.  Bodyform's latest ad shows something refreshingly different. An actual period.  The ad opens with red liquid being poured onto a pad. Not a drop of blue dye in sight! It also shows a closeup of a woman's thighs in a shower, with menstrual blood trickling down the inside of her leg—a sight that's familiar to anyone who has periods. The ad is [...]

Tree burning from the inside looks like a portal to hell

Comments are off for this post.
Matthew McDermott of Sonoma, California discovered an odd scene while driving in Schellville, California on Monday. A tree had caught fire thanks to the wildfires ripping through the state, and the tree was burning from the inside out.  "That is the craziest fucking thing I've ever seen," McDermott could be heard saying in the clip. "It's hollowed out the tree."  The outside of the tree seems mostly intact, and the fire burning inside can be seen through a series of holes in its trunk. It looks like a portal to hell. The Tubbs fire that caused the tree to ignite [...]

Image: costco  Prepping for the end of the world just got way easier. Beloved bulk retailer Costco is now offering a "1 Year Emergency Food Kit" for anyone who's getting ready to hunker down at the possibility of disaster. It seems like a pretty simple and smart move for the store, which already sells items in bulk.  The kit will run you $999.99, which is actually pretty reasonable considering it comes with 6,200 servings of food, which is apparently enough to feed one person for an entire year on a 1,200 calorie diet.  According to the kit's description on Costco's [...]

So The Spice Girls are in my playlist, I'm 29, don't look at me. Image: brian rasic/Getty Images Like a speaker hog at a house party, everyone loves a solid nostalgia moment when it comes to playlisting.
