EPA's climate change website reappears, missing the word 'climate'

On April 28, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) abruptly took down its long-standing treasure trove of online climate change resources, and put up a message stating that they were being updated to reflect the new priorities of the Trump administration.

It's becoming more and more clear that one of those priorities is to downplay the threat of climate change. And one way way to do that is to ignore it altogether.

To that end, on Friday, a group that monitors federal websites for changes in climate change content reported that the some of the climate websites taken down in April have returned to the EPA's site, with all references to climate change removed. Read more...

The reviews for Michael Fassbender's new movie are savage AF

In another world, a movie about a deranged serial killer who dismembers his victims and transplants their body parts with snowmen could be so entertaining. But this is not that world, and Tomas Alfredson's The Snowman (currently rocking 13% on Rotten Tomatoes) is an incoherent mess. Critics screened the film in time for its Oct. 19 debut and found nothing worth redeeming in its cast, plotting, and shoddy editing.

Here's what they had to say.

The secret comedy

Alissa Wilkinson, Vox:

The overall effect means that as the movie soldiers bravely on, the suspicion begins to build — like icy fingers on your neck — that this is not in fact a crime drama, but a vast punking conspiracy, a bit of avant-garde satire without any clear target. That feeling only grows with the dialogue, which is baffling in its badness. “Maybe this will bring your balls back,” Katrine says to Hole, handing him a cup of vodka. A character speaks of a “pregnancy doctor,” as if anyone calls an obstetrician by that name. At one point, a character says that he is infertile, then clarifies helpfully for those in the back that this means he cannot have children. Read more...

Halloween costumes for your baby who can't say 'No' yet

Babies. They're dumb. 

And I'm not saying this like it's a bad thing. There are so many wonderful dumb things in this universe —  Channing Tatum and novelty hot dog toasters are perhaps the best examples. And babies, unlike Channing Tatum, will grow out of it. 

Parents can even take advantage of this unique period in their child's life to make them costumes they would never, over their tiny chubby body, wear if they were fully sentient.

There's never been a better time for this totally socially acceptable kind of exploitation than Halloween.

But there's still a challenge Smith wants to complete: travelling to refugee camps across the world. For this reason he's launched a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe to help him fund his tour.  Read more...

Someone brought this macaroni and cheese to a potluck and thought, 'This is good'

There are two types of people who come to a potluck: those who bring food, and those who bring napkins.

Every once in a while, people will attempt to cross that inviolable boundary and pretend to be something they're not, putting the entire potluck at risk. Twitter user @coolstoryjanis' coworker, clearly a napkin-bringer, recently pretended that they were a "food potlucker" at a company event and well, you can see the consequences for yourself.
