This story of a widow, a lake, and a rose will restore your faith in humanity

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 21:45

Hope you have tissues nearby. 

The Bishop Vesey's Grammar School rowing club found a rose attached to the locked gate at a nearby lake, with the most heartbreaking note accompanying it.

"Please can someone throw this in the lake for me?" the note says. "My late husband's ashes are in the lake and I can't get to the lakeside in my wheelchair anymore + gates are locked — have to drive back up north tonight. Thank you." 

This note was left on the gate at the water this afternoon. No name or number left but whoever you are, rest assured your rose is in place in the middle of the lakepic.twitter.com/GAQcbQRSZJ

Chubbs the massive 15-foot gator is terrifying golf course guests again

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 21:21

Chubbs the gator is back, everyone. 

The massive 15-foot alligator first made a name for himself when he casually strolled through Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida in 2016. In a viral video, Chubbs ambles through the green fields, unbothered by the audibly freaked out course patrons. 

SEE ALSO: Donald Trump Jr swam in a swamp full of gators who declined to eat him

He was spotted roaming the green again this year. In a video posted to Facebook on Saturday, Chubbs appears to be just as unbothered as the last time he was spotted. Somehow looking even chubbier, the absolute unit of a beast trudged through the field until he found a comfortable patch of grass for a midday sploot. Read more...

Amy Schumer supports protesting NFL players by saying no to Super Bowl ads

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 21:14

The Super Bowl is the biggest night of the year for two things: Pro football and very expensive commercials. Amy Schumer has decided to use one to influence the other.

Her concern stems from ongoing protest actions in which certain players kneel, raises fists, or stand together united during pre-game National Anthem performances. They're doing it to take a stand against police brutality and racial inequality in America — sticking to the message of exiled NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Schumer isn't involved in football, but she does acknowledge that there's one place she can push back: Super Bowl ads. She's not doing them this year. She also urges Maroon 5 — the next Super Bowl's halftime band — to drop out. Read more...

Twitter quietly fired a suspected Saudi Arabian spy in 2015, report says

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 19:29

We've all seen what can happen when nefarious interests weaponize a social media platform like Twitter. Now imagine how much worse it would be if some foreign agent actually got a job at the company.

That's what happened in 2013, apparently. In a sprawling Saturday New York Times report looking at the Saudi Arabian leadership's social media campaign to silence critics and influence thinking, one detail stands out: The story of former Twitter employee Ali Alzabarah.

SEE ALSO: Twitter's Jack Dorsey doesn't use a computer or a tablet, apparently

Alzabarah joined the company in 2013 and worked his way into an engineering position that afforded him access to "the personal information and account activity of Twitter’s users, including phone numbers and I.P. addresses, unique identifiers for devices connected to the internet," the Times report said.

'Luke Cage' and 'Iron Fist' are done. Is this the end for the Netflix Marvel-verse?

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 17:50

Netflix canceled Marvel's Luke Cage on Friday, just one week after canceling Marvel's Iron Fist. With new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher in the pipeline, a fresh Season 3 debut for Daredevil, and no plans to resurrect The Defenders, could this be the end of Netflix and Marvel's game-changing TV partnership?

Glorious new 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' intro is what this show is all about

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 17:41

In what is simultaneously the most exciting and saddest turn of events, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is back on The CW right now for its final season. And on Friday, the fourth season's second episode introduced an all-new theme song.

For those who might be in the dark: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is an underwatched masterpiece. It's a musical comedy — something we don't see too often on TV — that follows the exploits of a young lawyer named Rebecca Bunch. 

The story is a tough one to sum up. In the very first episode, Rebecca runs into an old flame on the streets of New York City, then proceeds to move to his hometown on a whim. The unfolding story justifies this apparent deeply problematic life choice by painting Rebecca as a complex individual who's defined by much, much more than this guy she once crushed on.

This fifth grader's baked potato costume is better than whatever you've planned for Halloween

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 17:00

This is One Good Thing, a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week.

Halloween is fast approaching and while you may think your planned costume's impressive, there's a very good chance it won't top this fifth grader who dressed as a baked potato.

Reddit user seal2781, a 24-year-old named Celia, recently shared a throwback Halloween picture from 2004 — the year she followed her heart and dressed as a baked potato wrapped in foil with a li'l pat of butter on top. Precious! Delicious! All around wholesome!

The costume is one of the closest things we've seen to absolute Halloween perfection, and the kind of ensemble we should all strive to put together this time of year. If you're having doubts about how great it is, we're not exaggerating. See for yourself... Read more...

File this under "Of course that's what happened."

Soulcalibur VI, the latest entry in the long-running fighting game series, hit stores on Friday, Oct. 19. Now, here we are on Oct. 20, less than a day later, and because all members of the human race are inherently juvenile, everyone's penis is showing.

'Game of Thrones' had an epic cast reunion

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 14:55

A major Game of Thrones reunion took place earlier this year, with Conan O'Brien hosting. Actor Sean Bean let the news slip in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, bless him.

He said he had last seen his old co-stars "about four weeks ago in Belfast."

"Conan O’Brien did this thing," Bean said. "It was the last episode, so we all got together. It was good!"

The Starks deserve some good in their lives.

Netflix cancels 'Luke Cage,' the second Marvel series to go

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 14:09

Netflix has canceled Marvel's Luke Cage ahead of an expected Season 3 order. The decision, Deadline reports, stemmed from creative differences between the creative team and higher-ups at both Netflix and Marvel.

SEE ALSO: 'Iron Fist' was canceled and the internet has strong opinions

The Luke Cage writers team had just handed over script drafts for the first part of Season 3, which would have been 10 episodes, down from the usual 13 for a Netflix/Marvel show (the quickly canceled Defenders did eight). 

This decision comes on the heels of Iron Fist being canceled, but that was without a season currently in development (and Iron Fist, famously, sucks). As Deadline notes, this means the plug could get pulled on Jessica Jones Season 3 or The Punisher Season 2 at any point in development or production, which doesn't inspire confidence.  Read more...

5 ways you can stand up for domestic violence survivors

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 12:18

Over the course of one year, an average of 10 million women and men are physically abused by an intimate partner in the U.S. 

Domestic violence can take the form of physical, psychological, or economic abuse, and it is a national issue that affects people of all ages and genders, though the majority of victims are women. Survivors do not report abuse for many reasons, including fear of gaslighting. Despite years of progress, domestic violence remains a silent epidemic. 

"The first step in supporting survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and all forms of violence and discrimination, is to listen to them and believe them," said Ted Bunch, co-founder and chief development officer of A Call To Men, a violence prevention organization that teaches men and boys to redefine masculinity.  Read more...

Why you should give kids toys that look like them

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 10:30

Welcome to Small Humans, an ongoing series at Mashable that looks at how to take care of – and deal with – the kids in your life. Because Dr. Spock is nice and all, but it’s 2018 and we have the entire internet to contend with.

Now more than ever, it’s particularly evident that children need to be exposed to diversity as young as possible. It’s a topic that can inspire hesitation among a lot of parents, but setting the foundation for inclusivity isn’t as hard as you might think. Interactive play with diverse toys can be a great method to accomplish this. 

Diversity – which is often used in tandem with inclusion – in this context refers to having access to toys that represent individuals of a range of races/ethnicities, ability statuses, and genders. There are other aspects of diversity that are more challenging to represent without backstories. For those, books are a wonderful way to introduce aspects of diversity like sexual orientation, financial class, language, neurodiversity, and mental health.  Read more...

How 'Halloween' uses side-splitting humor to give its victims a pulse

Sat, 10/20/2018 - 09:00
Warning: Major spoilers for the new Halloween lie ahead. 

"I've got peanut butter on my penis." 

That's an actual line from the new Halloween—and it is as amazing in context as it is out of context. 

The latest addition to the Halloween franchise has been praised for revitalizing the horror of Michael Myers, cleverly throwing back to John Carpenter's original masterpiece, and giving the franchise's most infamous victim the conclusion she deserves

One of the lesser discussed assets of 2018's Halloween (although Mashable's Angie Han nailed it weeks ago) is the uproariously funny gaggle of prey Michael slays before his final face-off with Laurie Strode. The slasher victims' deaths aren't particularly chuckle-worthy, but the short vignettes they star in leading up to Myers' horrifying appearances are memorably hilarious.  Read more...
