    A Simple Cup Of Coffee Can Help You Figure Out If You Smell Bad, So Drink Up

    We’ve all been that stinky person. Whether it’s on a packed-AF subway, or in the middle of a crowd at a concert or even in a more intimate gathering at a friend’s house, we’ve all had to deal with our own seriously rancid B.O. The real problem lies in the fact that, for the most part, […]

    This Badass Dog Was Arrested By Police, But For The Sweetest Reason

    I have always been extremely wary of chihuahuas. Try and tell me they don’t look like they exist purely to annoy you on a constant basis by barking at decibels no human ear should ever have to endure.
