What Happens to Your Facebook When You Die?

There's a moment in the book The Fault In Our Stars, when cancer patient Hazel Grace gazes at a recently deceased classmate's Facebook wall and scans the long list of condolences there. This happens in a book that everyone has read and no one thought it was weird because afterlife Facebook pages have become normal and expected, a 21st century part of life: when a loved one passes away, their social media presence lives on. Recently, a team of number-crunchers at WebpageFX turned up...

Why People Who Hate Cats Are Suspect

I recently made a new lady friend. When I had said friend over for the first time a few weeks ago, I realized something glaringly off about her: she was super awkward around my cat. She literally did not know how to interact around him and weirdly petted him with a forced “aww.” When he playfully batted his paw at her, she got freaked out and claimed he hit her. We’ll see how that holds up in court. You best lawyer up, pronto. I finally called her on her horribly concealed dislike, when she...

She and her mother, Kathy Dawson, filed a human-rights complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission last year after Emily completed a mandatory abstinence-only workshop that slut-shamed students and used scare tactics to enforce abstinence.

Woman Confronts Catcallers and Secretly Films Their Reactions

I've always been curious about the psychology behind street harassment: whenever strange men trundle forth out of the shadows to mutter sexy adjectives at me or whenever they effusively waggle their eyebrows and make kissy noises out of moving vehicles, I wonder, "What is the end game here?" Do they think that I'm going to turn around and say, "Thank you, good sir, I'm deeply touched; I, too, find myself delicious on this crisp summer morning" or chase after their car waving my phone number at...

They are vain, they are jealous and they are oh, so wonderfully evil. They are Disney villains. Whether they're trying to gain power, status, or even just the object of their desire, these villains pull out every stop to take control and overthrow the "good guy." Luckily, as Disney, and life in general would have it, the "good guy" usually wins. The villains are defeated and we walk away with a great story about a hero or heroine. But what about the villain? Even the most evil villains are not...
