When you go home tonight to unhinge your jaw to pour four bottles of Riesling down the hatch, take comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. A new study released by, who else, a wine bottling company, said Wednesday (tonight!) at around 7 p.m. is the most common time during the week to drink vino. Read More
Your good-for-nothing pets are not only a drain on your wallet, but they’re ruining your electronics at an alarming pace. Last year, more than eight million pieces of human technology were eaten by cats and dogs, with cell phones accounting for a third of that number. Read More
Okay, we’ll admit it: a smartphone is almost as good as a boyfriend. Texting is a perfectly fine substitute for talking, a Snapchat of a penis is not that much less exciting than the real thing, and who needs to fall asleep to the comforting sound of your loved one’s snoring when you can drift off to dreamland guided by your favorite chillwave band?

Since Google has invented Glass, an intricately built face computer that’s only purpose is to display Reddit while showering, it now has to entice the public to buy the dopey devices. If a new survey is to be believed, that’ll be an uphill challenge: Just 10 percent of respondents would wear it on the regular–regardless of how much it costs. Read More
People are increasingly acting like complete assholes to each other online, according to a new study conducted by corporate training firm VitalSmarts. Nearly 80 percent of respondents said they believe people’s rude behavior on social media is getting worse, and that they themselves have “no qualms” about acting like a jerk online.

The survey of 1,500 women ages 18+, published by photo gift service MyMemory, determined that, “The majority of women posting the photos said they did so after falling out with their friends, while nearly a third said they were taking revenge on people who had done the same to them,” according to The Telegraph.
Presumably the majority of those women had also called someone “a gap-toothed bitch” at one point in time (it’s not their fault they’re so gap-toothed).
Enough mean girling! Let’s all agree to respect the detag/takedown request, shall we?
