Bret Easton Ellis: My ability to trigger millennials is insane

The former enfant terrible of 80s literature is now a self-appointed scourge of victimhood and outrage. He talks about his first book for a decade Poor Bret Easton Ellis. For someone I imagine to be rather fastidious years ago, a friend of mine visited his New York apartment, where he was a little surprised to be told not to touch any of its owners CDs this can hardly be the easiest of Monday mornings. For one thing, Virgin Atlantic has lost his luggage. Ahead of my arrival at his pristine London hotel, he had to dash out to buy deodorant; his black tracksuit bottoms are faintly marked with a stain that may (or may not) be airline toothpaste. For another, …

Millennial couple asks neighbors to provide ‘homemade granola’ after giving birth. It backfired.

via Shutterstock Welcoming a baby into your family completely upends your daily routine. Tasks you’d otherwise consider essential — cleaning, cooking, bathing, sleeping, playing Fortnite for hours — become practical impossibilities. You may well find yourself running on four hours of sleep, wearing yesterday’s clothes with burp-puke on them, struggling to scrub dishes or prepare a simple meal. Surviving the earliest days of parenthood requires a support system — indeed, there’s a whole field of etiquette surrounding the assistance of new parents. But a pair of millennials in Philadelphia posted a “meal train” request on NextDoor that pushed one man over the edge. Fortunately for the rest of us, he aired his grievance publicly on Twitter — and gave the …

Sri Lanka, citing ‘false news reports,’ blocks social media after attacks

New York (CNN Business)Sri Lanka placed a nationwide block on social media sites after more than 200 people died in multiple attacks on Sunday.

Confusion and blame in Sri Lanka after bloody Easter Sunday attacks

Colombo, Sri Lanka (CNN)One day after a devastating series of attacks on hotels and churches across Sri Lanka, another explosion blew out windows in the residential street in central Colombo and knocked a security officer off his feet. More than 300 people have been reported dead in the attacks, with hundreds more injured. As the death toll threatens to rise even further, Sri Lankan officials have veered from promising to pull the nation together, to tearing each other down. The country was split by a political crisis last year, when President Maithripala Sirisena attempted to replace the incumbent Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe, with a favored candidate. Wickremesinghe was reinstated in December after the intervention of the Supreme Court. There appear …

This ‘witty’ criminal taunted the law on Facebook. The law won.

That is how we continue to be excited about every new story. Below are our latest works. The three of them (like a lot of our stories) are fairy tales in a way: a jazz singer that makes it rain when she sings, a mysterious tattoo artist that will give you a tattoo that’ll change your life, and an old …

This GIF Of A Starfish “Walking” Is Legitimately Disturbing

Every now and then a video of an animal doing what an animal always does takes the Internet by storm, purely because it’s not how people expected that animal to behave.  We’ve had the pufferfish video that went viral because everybody thought they filled themselves with air (they do not), and we’ve had the video of swimming seashells that went viral largely because people didn’t picture them swimming at all. Now to that list add starfish, casually taking a stroll down a beach.   The video was captured in the Outer Banks of North Carolina in early October 2012, but has recently re-emerged (like a starfish from the ocean) on Reddit. Other videos show the same behavior, above and below water. So what’s …

There are now as many Americans who claim no religion as there are evangelicals and Catholics, a survey finds

(CNN)For the first time “No Religion” has topped a survey of Americans’ religious identity, according to a new analysis by a political scientist. The non-religious edged out Catholics and evangelicals in the long-running General Social Survey. A growing number of Americans reject organized religion “Religious nones,” as they are called by researchers, are a diverse group made up of atheists, agnostics, the spiritual, and those who are no specific organized religion in particular. A rejection of organized religion is the common thread they share. “It is the first time we have seen this. The same questions have been asked for 44 years,” Burge told CNN. The meteoric rise of religious nones began in the early 1990s and has grown 266% …
