It’s like winning the lottery the day after the world explodes.
A BUNNY WEARING BUNNY SLIPPERS = VERY INCONGRUOUS = IRONY.
SEE IT'S IRONIC BECAUSE IT'S NOT A JOB WELL DONE BECAUSE THE FORTUNE IS SUPPOSED TO BE INSIDE THE COOKIE.
COSMO criticizing someone else on sex advice — THAT'S IRONIC.
Via Brooklyn. It's ironic because FUNERAL HOMES are not FUN.
It’s an open question, but I’d say the odds are against Kanye West benefiting much from his impending father status. That’s because the transformative power of fatherhood only seems to work its magic for the better when men live with the children they father, and with their baby’s mother. And, given the on-again-off-again status of the Kanye West–Kim Kardashian relationship (Kanye West recently celebrated his birthday with friends in New York, more than 2,000 miles from his baby’s mother), I’m guessing Kanye and Kim won’t go the distance.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Facebook is introducing hashtags, the number signs used on Twitter, Instagram and other services to identify topics being discussed and allow users to search for them.
Facebook Inc. said in a blog post Wednesday that users will be able to click a hashtag to see a feed of discussions about a particular topic. For example, typing a number sign in front of "ladygaga" or "sunset" will turn the words into a link that users can click on to find posts about Lady Gaga or sunsets.
Facebook said hashtags are a first step toward making it easier for users to find out what others are discussing. The company is not giving exact details about other tools it might introduce. If Twitter's use of hashtags is any indication, Facebook will likely incorporate them into its advertising business.
"We'll continue to roll out more features in the coming weeks and months, including trending hashtags and deeper insights, that help people discover more of the world's conversations," wrote Greg Lindley, product manager for hashtags, in the post.
In the New York Times on Wednesday, Joshua Lang took a detailed look at the work of demographer Diana Greene Foster, who has spent close to five years studying what happens to women who are denied abortions. Foster and a team of researchers compared women who were able to terminate their pregnancies close to the cut-off date, usually around 20 weeks, to demographically similar women who wanted an abortion but -- often because their pregnancies exceeded gestational limits for the procedure -- were turned away by clinics.
As Foster discovered, these two groups of women often experiencedradically differentoutcomes. Women who were denied abortions generally fared worse in terms of mental health and financial security; they were also more likely to stay in relationships with abusive partners than those who were able to end unwanted pregnancies.
It was a twist no one could have seen coming. A shocking reveal 14 long years in the making. On Tuesday, NME picked up on a quiet little tidbit that M. Night Shyamalan let drop during a recent interview on Movies.com to promote his dismal, fated-to-fail "After Earth." When asked about his trademark "brand," Shyamalan mentioned that the same year he made his mark with "The Sixth Sense," another film he'd written also came out. "I don't know if I want to tell you which movie I ghost-wrote," he said, before fessing up the truth. "I ghost-wrote the movie 'She's All That.'" Oh my God, of course he did. It all makes sense now!
"She's All That" is an above-average late-'90s teen romance. In other words, it's M. Night Shyamalan's greatest film. Not only that, it's a singularly M. Night Shyamalan late-'90s teen romance. It's a Pygmalion tale of a popular boy who, jilted by his girlfriend for an obnoxious "Real World" reject, accepts a bet from his toxic buddy that he can turn an awkward, artsy wallflower into school prom queen. But along the way, will there be reversals of expectations? Will the characters develop genuine romantic feelings for each other? (Spoiler: GUH DOY OF COURSE.)
