Those of us lucky enough to have a great relationship with ourdadknow hes truly in a league of his own. We wouldnt tradehis hilarious Hawaiian-shirt-wearing shenanigans and constant dad jokes for anything in the world. And lets be honest:Dad always knows the best things to say, even if theyre totally corny. As a teen, you probably werent always willing to hear his advice. Instead, you rolled your eyes and laughed when he attempted to be serious with you. But when youre in your 20s, and even a little wiser, you might be willing to listen. From financial advice, to Dads […]

Most of us haveexperienced that out of the loop feeling once summer hits. You know, that feeling when either your high school squad has moved far away, or your college friends are all going back home together.

But before you label yourself the outsider and spend your entire summer wondering what may have gone wrong, […]

If you’ve seen a superhero movie in the last 20 years, you know how fascinated we are with origin stories. As a culture, we’ve spent more time filming Batman’s parents die than we have researching cancer. If everyone went rock climbing ten times a month for the rest of their lives, it would still be a less popular hobby than watching Spider-Man’s uncle die. The following origin stories may not be as well-documented as Krypton exploding, but they all actually happened in reality. And they kind of explain everything … 5 The Koch Brothers Were Born From A Crucible Filled […]

The Parks and Recreation stars new film charts the rise of McDonalds head honcho Ray Kroc. He talks about resisting the rise of another capitalist narcissist Hi, Nick. Were you disappointed that The Founder didnt get any Oscarnominations? Well, I generally ignore that part of the business, because it is infuriating. Its simply not merit-based. Its a lot like American politics. Its strange, because a story of asharky, capitalist sociopath seems quite fitting for the times. It does. Unintentionally, too. Its areally fascinating story, and the timing just worked out. It lined up quite neatly with the rise of another […]

Hello! My name is Rita and I’m a Cat Addict. Every day I need a new dose of catdrugs. I will tell my story and maybe it will save you. I spent all of my childhood in a Russian village. There were cows, ghouls, chicken, ducks, pigs and of course cats all around. Since childhood, I spent a lot of my time talking, looking after and playing with them. I never thought that I would devote 100% of my time to cats, but now I have three cats in my apartment and I constantly make earrings in the form of cats. […]

Its hard to hate up close. Dr. Oz I have spent the last several months immersed in a documentary for National Geographic called Gender Revolution. The entire process was life-changing and mind-altering for me and hopefully for others who watch. The impetus for making the film was simple: I screwed up. When I hosted a daytime talk show (Katie how original!) I did an interview with Carmen Carrera, a trans fashion model. And yes, I asked her a highly offensive question about her private parts. When the show was being edited to air on a later date, I asked the […]

We believe in empowering the community. Nintendos sometimes-back-and-forth perspective on embracing and not embracing esports and its surrounding culture can effectively be explained by that sentiment, which Reggie Fils-Aim, Nintendos president, shared with me at E3 last week. SEE ALSO: So, Nintendo’s ‘ARMS’ is actually a super-robust fighting game Esports is about community, sure, but its often a lot more orchestrated than that word would imply. When you think about gaming communities, you think about forums, about meetups and casual tournaments, about collaborative efforts to solve mysteries and take down obstacles, about streamers and speedrunners. A lot of that intersects […]
