Ah, get a load of these young people. Always trying to come up with new and ever more idiotic ways to amuse themselves. Take this latest, Condom Challenge, in which teens pop a water-filled condom over each other's heads then burst into laughter as it explodes and suctions their faces. Think Ice Bucket challenge without the brain cells or the charity slant.
No doubt about it, three year-old Brielle is one clever little bunny. She rocked it on "The Ellen Show" recently, not only rhyming off the element of the Periodic Table, but also informing host Ellen DeGeneres that she knows all the countries in Europe and Africa, as well as all the US presidents, by heart.
"You're making me feel bad about myself," Ellen joked with Brielle.
A feminist blogger by the name of Zoe Stavri, aka “Another angry woman,” got the genius idea to do something useful with her thrush, like pitch it in to make her own sourdough. Because waste not, want not.
Except, I don't know about you, but I don't fancy consuming my own bodily secretions.
Touted as a craft or building toy, Bunchems literally 'bunch' together to form interesting creations. In fact, they stick so well that should some of the 370 balls that come in a pack find their way into your child's hair, they can bring on a world of pain.
What this young woman did brings new meaning to the term 'multitasking.' While most of us are content to devote 100 per cent of our energies to just getting through childbirth relatively unscathed (relatively being the operative word), a 21 year-old student had something important to do first.
Every now and then it takes a child to come along and renew a grown up's faith in humanity - and not a moment too soon. One such boy is Jack Swanson, who raided his piggy bank to help a Texas mosque vandalized in the wake of the Paris attacks, which left 129 people dead.
The rumour mill insisted that an A-list celebrity has HIV and that celebrity turned out to be Charlie Sheen. The Two And A Half Men actor admitted in an interview with TODAY that he has had the virus for the past four years.
"It's a hard three letters to absorb. It's a turning point in one's life," said the 50 year-old who was at one point the highest grossing TV star.
We all know of people with such outstanding hair, it seems like an integral part of their very character. Well, Clare Bowen, who plays country singer Scarlett on the show Nashville, is one of those people. Which is why people are reeling from the fact that she just cut it all off.
Yep, those lustrous trademark locks are gone. And Clare Bowen felt obliged to explain why she chopped it all off in a poetic Facebook post, along with an image of her captioned "It's Just Hair," which has garnered almost 150,000 'likes.'
Obesity is a huge problem for kids, not only here in Canada and the States but also overseas. In the UK, the government got involved by sending out controversial "fat letters" to parents of primary schoolchildren whose body mass index (BMI) results showed they were overweight or obese.
But that approach totally backfired. Only one-fifth of parents responded favourably to the letter.
My kid just loves practicing her instrument for hours every day, said no parent ever.
While many of us love the idea of our kids learning to play piano or other instrument, getting them to practice their craft is harder than getting them to willingly munch on steamed kale while doing algebra.
Even for kids who are passionate about music, extra motivation is needed if they are to keep at it.
