His plan may sound good on the surface, but it ultimately reveals how oblivious he is to his constituencys true plight Donald Trump does have an economic policy, it seems. But if youre trying to find any hint of ideological coherence in the odd mish-mash of positions that the GOP presidential candidate laid out in his nearly hour-long speech in Detroit on Monday, your quest will be in vain. Trumps speech was meant to put his campaign back on track and it did briefly, before he derailed it again with his suggestion that gun-supporters might take aim at Hillary Clinton, […]

The video game-themed webcomics of the mid-2000s were, for the most part, very bad, butthere were so very many of them. Collectively, they seemed to stand for the propositions that women are incomprehensible breast-having space aliens and thatone’spreference in gaming console makes any difference whatsoever. Their heroes wereoften thin stand-ins for the authors, their dialogue was often very bad, and their portrayals of relationships were unrealistic. It would be great to bury that shameful chapter of the internet, but we can’t, because Twitter just dredged it up. Now everyone’s looking back on the drippingpiles of webcomic garbage they enjoyed just […]

The ability to adapt is key when you’re an avid do-it-yourselfer. While progressing through your build, you may find that something isn’t quite right. Sometimes, you might even be tasked with tackling techniques that you haven’t tried before, such as woodworking or masonry. Luckily for us, there are video tutorials for just about everything online. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); When alr227 set out to build a fire pit with a patio, he never expected that his project would become a massive endeavor.

Classic scenes she reimagines include the toilet scenebut where the […]

There are certain moments in our lives that are too important not to share with the people we love. Singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson is having one of those moments. Photo by Ralph Arvesen/Flickr.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Desks are definitely my favorite pieces of furniture. I am an organization freak, so it’s no surprise that I love the type of furniture that helps further my obsession. While I’d love to invest in a quality piece, unfortunately, I use a cheap Walmart desk made out of particleboard (that will probably fall apart any day now). Nothing’s necessarily wrong with particleboard, but you can’t beat a desk crafted from real wood. Redditor jdovew must agree with me, because he built a gorgeous edge-grain desk using eight (that’s right) different kinds of wood. And when you […]

SEE ALSO: Fan shares ‘handwritten letter’ from Adele hinting she’ll never tour again “Ive got a new secret hobby,”Adele reportedly told her audience in Wembley Stadium, according to Metro. “I mean I say hobby, itll […]

Donald Trump Is Much Uglier Than His Mika Brzezinski Tweet

Most people would say that 160 days into his presidency, Donald Trump has fallen short of even the low expectations harbored by his campaigns detractors. But theres one metric by which Trump has far exceeded expectations: his contempt for women. Its easy to tell by the way he effortlessly spouts misogyny that, to paraphrase Paul Ryan, hes not new at this. This mornings target was Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski. Apparently enraged by the political talk shows rough treatment of his administration, the president of the United States tweeted: I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (dont watch […]

A flimsy sheet of paper gives the mother of all cuts to a strip of wood in a new viral video. John Heisz replaced his buzzsaw blade with a round piece of regular printer paper, which he then used to saw through the wood. “This redefines ‘paper cut,’ I guess,” the carpenter from Ontario, Canada, wrote Sunday on his woodworking website I Build It. “And while this really doesn’t have any practical applications, it was interesting to do,” he stated. With humidity making the paper “fairly limp with moisture,” Heisz said it was “amazing” that his experiment even worked. He […]
