Hipster haters are gonna destroy these fancy, ridiculous VR goggles

Image: mashable, Lili sams Virtual reality as we know it today didn't exist in the 19th century, but what if it did? What if, alongside the monocles, pocket watches, and snuffboxes of proper gentlemen of the time, there existed, somehow, a fancy pants VR headset. You may officially turn your imagination off, because we found those VR goggles, and they are gloriously impractical yet compelling in their own hipster-using-a-vacuum-tube-phonograph way. SEE ALSO: Did Da Vinci Invent Google Glass? The 2VR Virtual Reality Headset is a foldable pair of spectacles designed to work with most 4- to 6-inch smartphones to allow you to view VR content on the go. Dubbed "a window to the world in your pocket," the device, as wonky as it looks, is actually designed quite well. The smartphone cradle is padded with rubber grips to hold the smartphone firm, the arms of the glasses are adjustable and […] Read more »

Dolphins hydroplaning at super speed will make you want to be a dolphin

Just when you thought dolphins couldn't get any smarter or cooler, they show up every other animal in the kingdom and hydroplane like the speed demons they are. In this video uploaded to Youtube by BBC Earth, dolphins in Western Australia hunt for fish by zooming along the shoreline in the most majestic, speedy fashion. According to the video, dolphins usually stun their prey by slapping it with their tails. But for these dolphins, the fish are just a bit out of reach. So to capture their dinner, they wind up by vigorously pumping their tails to gain speed, and then hydroplane at super speed to grab the fish. No, the video isn't sped up - those guys are really going that fast. There's little room for error because if this strategy goes south for the dolphins, they could end up stranded on the shore. But life in the ocean […] Read more »

How To Wear Red, White & Blue Without Looking Like A Basic B*tch

  Memorial Day Weekend is one hell of an underrated holiday. It kicks off the start of summer, you can eat all the hot dogs you want (which should be zero), and youre daging until whenever it is you finally pass out, because day drinking is really fucking exhausting. Basically, it sets the standards for what this summer will bring. Will you throw up over the side of the boat? Or will you hook up with that guy youve had your eye on since college? It really can go either way and what you fucking wear is like, so important. Whether your plans involve partying on a motherfucking boat or reuniting with friends and family you havent seen in forever, your outfit needs to make one hell of an impression.

Saturday Night Live: the 10 best clips of the biggest season ever

From Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer to Scarlett Johanssons turn as a Complicit Ivanka Trump, the show has been more relevant than ever Saturday Night Live has been enjoying quite the resurgence this year. Presidential campaigns are always good business for the long-running sketch series, but its been the election and presidency of Donald Trump that has launched the show into mega-drive. Ratings are the highest theyve been in 23 years, and stars including Alec Baldwin, Melissa McCarthy and Scarlett Johansson seem happy to stop by to reprise their roles in the current political melodrama whenever necessary. The show also switched to airing live in all (continental) US time zones, making it easier for it to build a social media following and allowing clips of the sketches to be online minutes after they air live on TV. That energy has brought some real classics: here are the 10 best sketches […] Read more »

How To Wear Makeup To The Beach Without Looking Extra

  Life is hard when you want to go to the beach looking like a Victorias Secret model without having to do anything at all. This would require a change in diet (i.e. no late-night pasta and hourly weekly shots of vodka), which is something Id like to say I want to do, but I dont. It would mean putting on a ridiculous amount of makeup, where it would just become socially unacceptable to go to the beach at that point. No one wants to be that asshole who clearly is trying too hard to look good at a family beach. Everyone and their mother knows you look like a fucking idiot if you come to the beach with a fucking smokey eye. Like, please do so much less. Winged eyeliner says Im getting fucked up tonight, not I'm trying to get so tan that I start to look racially […] Read more »

'Don't slip, don't trip!': inside Australian fashion week

Guardian Australia goes behind the scenes with the models, designers and hangers-on at Sydneys parade Its like a hurricane: one minute its calm and then its chaos, says Kate Reynolds from Melbourne design-duo Pageant moments before the start of their debut show at Australian fashion week. Behind her, 20 or so models are frantically changing into their outfits, half a dozen backstage photographers are herded together and repeatedly told do not cross the yellow tape by an irate producer, and a doorman blocks a young woman from hurriedly entering the scene. Im a model, she protests. No-ones coming in and no-ones crossing that tape, thats what Ive been told, he says. But Im in this show! she scoffs, swerving around him while rolling her eyes at the snappers. It feels like a microcosm of fashion week, where colour and drama are abundant, punctuality is unheard of, and surviving the week […] Read more »
