Sad

This is unbelievable.

It saddens me how people think they can treat animals. It saddens me that the people in this situation thought they were in the right. It saddens me that CNN reported that "it is unclear what caused the bear to attack."

Unclear?? Maybe it had something to do with the fact that the bear was taken from his natural habitat and forced to wear fucking ice skates. 


Just a guess. 


And also, HE'S A BEAR.

Plastic

CNN said that Mattel is introducing new Barbie dolls. 


"Grace, Kara and Trichelle were created to fill a void for young black girls who for so long have been playing with dolls that don't look like them."


Yeah, because when I look at the white Barbie, I think, "Wow! She looks JUST like me!"

Don't Let Mechanics Drive All Over You

If you don't own a car, I love you.

But if you have to own a car, here are some tips on how not to get scammed by a mechanic.

1. Know your shit. (I took a one day class on basic car mechanics through a local community college. So now when I go to the mechanic, I still have no idea what's going on, but at least I can drop fancy terms ala Marisa Tomei in MCV.)
2. Research. If Danny McGreaser tells you that you need a new crank sensor, look up how much that should cost before committing to anything. Wikipedia, kids.
3. Ask for a discount. You'd be surprised what asking can do. Most places will offer at least 10% off with no hesitation.
4. Don't bring your man. Some girls think this makes them less likely to get taken advantage of. But no mechanic wants to be emasculated in front of another dude. And you WILL emasculate him.
5. Wear jeans. If you wear your slutty miniskirt, they won't take you seriously, and you'll get scammed even more.
6. Wear a push-up bra. I mean, c'mon, I'm not an idiot.

The Princess and the Eco-Pea

Let's talk mattresses!

If you're looking to buy a new one, you should research the most eco-friendly options.

Firstly, do you need a new mattress? Even if your old one wasn't built from sustainable materials, keeping it may be less wasteful than buying a new, eco-friendly version.

But if you're absolutely ready for a new one, there are sustainable mattresses available. When I bought my new mattress, I visited a factory to see exactly how eco-friendly mattresses were made (I'm nuts; I know). I tried out quite a few, at varying levels of comfort and sustainability, but many that I tried were upwards of $2000, so I finally found a less expensive option.

For the same price as a traditional mattress, I bought a Keetsa mattress. They are free from the toxins, formaldehyde, and pesticides that are present in mainstream mattresses (Who wants to sleep on pesticides?), and their production has a minimal effect on the environment. They are reasonably priced, and they arrive at your door in about two days.

Plus, they are so so comfy!

So if you're looking for new sleeping digs, check them out:
