The creators of the Fidget Cube, Matthew and Mark McLachlan, have figured out the ONE niche that hadn't yet been met in society: fixing anxious people. The Fidget Cube Kickstarter project is meant to help put errant fingers to work--



Their initial goal was $15,000, but as of press time they had raised OVER $4.2 MILLION:




They describe the cube (which is basically just something to do with your fingers if you like to click pens/bite your fingernails/etc), as:





So let's all put our heads together and figure out the next way to take money from anxious people... ideas anyone?

It's nearly here!




The new Pokémon Go! Plus wearable is for sale Sept. 16th and though it's currently sold out on Amazon.com, you can keep an eye on it's availability here.


As for how it works,






At $35.99, the new wearable is cheaper than a new Apple watch and compatible with both Android and iOS devices. In the package, you should get both the device and an initial wrist strap, but you can also accessorize your Go Plus with Shield Skins and even a cool Power Bank to make your hunts longer.

Once it's released there should be a TON of third-party sites selling skins, alternative wrist straps, and accessories for it. From the looks of the pretty basic design, you can also probably pretty easily DIY your own wrist strap.





You can also just look super cool hanging it out of your shirt pocket--sans accessories--too:




So get out there and catch some Pokémon! Happy Hunting!

The durian fruit, known in southeast Asia as the "king of fruits," has a spiky exterior, soft fleshy insides, and it's flavor is described as "...a strange combination of savory, sweet, and creamy all at once... with subtle hints of chives mixed with powdered sugar. It's supposed to taste like diced garlic and caramel poured into whipped cream."



So the new condom with durian flavor is DEFINITELY a gamble, but maybe one that's worth it? At the very least, it's a lot of fun to watch the embarrassed Malaysians from 1:20 in the video above.

So it's a chance to take:

"Some people don't like the smell of durians, so during sex they might get turned off."



But if you're game, let us know in the comments if they worked well for you (or not).

Uber has officially decided that the people of Pittsburgh are disposable, as they have started using self-driving cars to pick people up there as their first test location.




Pittsburgh is known for having dinosaur-sized potholes...








With Pittsburgh's confusing-to-navigate-roads, the cars (and passengers) def have their tests ahead of them.






The reviews are in, and folks aren't pleased, but technology always marches onward...






Hey, it could be worse I guess.

American Girls. Those super-expensive dolls you could buy to look creepily exactly like you, look nothing like you, or to just be cute:


She's definitely cute


We can agree--whether with our parents over how much they cost, or at our friends for not letting us rip off their heads or cut off their hair--we have all had anger toward them at some point in our lives.

Enter Betches and their definitive ranking of the American Girls by Betchiness.

We get the glory of seeing that entitled historical b*tch Samantha, finally getting put in her place.

...and seeing Josefina Montoya--pronounced "HO-SEF-INA" (I know, because I used to work there and was REQUIRED to correct people who called in to order one, fun times)--put in her damn place brings me NO END of pleasure:




Plus with randos like Caroline Abbott...


...you will feel the satisfying burn of familiar hatred sparked within the childlike center of your soul.


Don't you just hate our faces?!


Check out more of the awesomeness and pick your favorite betch here.
