  2. Wifi Enabled Sheep, Reindeer Could Bring Internet Access to Rural Areas

    Real talk: I didn't realize that this picture was sad until I'd already embedded it, I'm so sorry.

    Get with the times Wallace. With that many sheep around you could be reading about Gromit's life sentence on a tablet. Much less palatable to hungry (and sad) sheep.

  3. “Think Before You Comment” Is Our New Favorite Song

    The internet should have to listen to this every morning.

    Here at The Mary Sue, we're blessed with one of the best readerships and comment sections on teh intarwebs. Just about anywhere else, though, people are not quite so lucky, and comment sections can turn into a revolting, nauseating look at the worst of the human psyche.

  6. UK Man Jailed For Tweeting Rape Threats In Response To Jane Austen Banknote Campaign

    Badly done, asshole. Badly done, indeed.

  9. No, You’re Crying Over Gisele Bündchen’s Under Armour Ad Campaign

    It's insPITational. (Phew, had to get that out of my system. )

    I am a total sucker for Under Armour's recent ads. The company has recently emphasized the power of women not typically considered "athletes" (their last commercial showed underdog ballerina Misty Copeland sticking it to her critics), and now Gisele Bündchen has literally entered the ring in a video which shows her kickboxing underneath projections of actual comments made about her online.
