It’s not just your muscles that will hurt, but your wallet as well.

Mark Zuckerberg’s dog masters the art of camouflage in glorious new photos



Mark Zuckerberg’s dog may be a public figure, but he’s also great at blending in.

In fact, Beast Zuckerberg (who, despite his appearance, is not a mop) has all but mastered the art of camouflage.

On Friday, Zuckerberg shared three photos of Beast “blending in around the house,” leading us to conclude that Beast might be part chameleon.

If you don’t pay enough attention, you could definitely trip over Beast on this fluffy rug.

And, finally, there’s this time-honored question: Is this a mop or a Hungarian sheepdog? Read more…

Justin Bieber finally shaved off his dreads and the world is better for it



Red alert, everyone. Justin’s dreads are gone and all is right in the world.

The pop music star posted a few pictures on Twitter and Instagram of his freshly shorn head.

The buzzcut happened soon after his concert in Washington, D.C. on Friday night.

While many of his fans feel the change is so much better than the dreads, others are in mourning for Justin’s blonde tresses. Read more…

The Camaro nameplate is about a synonymous with American muscle as NASA is with space travel and the Twinkie is with indestructibility.

With the sixth-generation Camaro, though, Chevy has massaged more into the iconic pony car than just burliness. Chevy furnished it with lots of technology, too.

To underscore that point, here are just a few tech treats offered on the SS: It can be a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that supports up to seven devices. It can run Apple CarPlay on its 8-inch touchscreen display. And, of course, it also includes an inductive wireless charging mat for your smartphoneWhat’s more, that list doesn’t begin to touch on the performance technology available in the Camaro SS as well.  Read more…

The weirdly upsetting thing you’ve never noticed about Taylor Swift’s arms



On Friday, April 29, at approximately 1:43 p.m. I discovered the ugly truth behind Taylor Swift’s appendages. 

The pop-star uses her lithe arms to entrap her squad members in uncomfortable, subservient poses. Why? Ask the Illuminati. 

But, just maybe, her arms are aliens who hold her friends hostage.

But seriously, almost every picture of Swift — and I mean the “candid” images, not weird magazine shoots that require models to pose with guitars behind their heads — show the singer wrapping her 6 ft. limbs into incredibly awkward positions.  Read more…

This dog can’t help but dance every time it hears the banjo



Some pups like rock ‘n’ roll, other dogs like something a little more classical.

The dog in the background, however, clearly doesn’t appreciate bluegrass.
