Emma Watson's beautiful speech to the UN supporting feminism and the HeForShe campaign was wonderful - so of course a bunch of people had to go ahead and hate her for it. Taylor Swift doesn't have time for any of your garbage, though, and she wants you to know she's 100% behind both feminism and Watson. Like, figuratively. You get it.Read More

When you woke up this morning, did you think to yourself, "I haven't had enough shirtless Jeff Goldblum in my life lately?" Well me too, friend. Me too.

Will there be abs? Asking for reasons.

Seriously, Thomas Edison is the worst.
Matthew Inman (aka The Oatmeal) loves Nikola Tesla. Like, really loves Nikola Tesla. Inman loves Tesla so much that Inman actually saved Tesla's former laboratory from destruction, owns it, and now wants to turn it into a Tesla Museum. So rad. To educate the rest of the world about how awesome Tesla is, Inman and Sarah Donner created this musical homage to his brilliance, and it's pretty great.Read More
