So GQ recently did an article showcasing Fall clothing as a backdrop to male climbers in Joshua Tree National Park:




Well, Outdoor Research didn't like how the women in the story were only portrayed as accessories to the climbers, frolicking in tiny bathing suits and adorning the men as stereotypes.





So they took it upon themselves to answer GQ's article, picture-by-picture using bad*ss women climbers:

trending amazon shopping news new mall store pop up

Amazon has plans to open 100 retail stores across the U.S., adding to it's current tally of 16 pop-up stores in malls across the Country.



According to Business Insider, "The miniature retail storefronts are a separate effort from the physical bookstore that Amazon opened in Seattle last year and are primarily designed to showcase and sell the company's hardware devices, particularly its Echo home speakers."



They sell the pop-ups as places where you can "Ask an Expert," test drive the products, and buy them on the spot without having to pay for Amazon shipping. Right now they only sell mostly Amazon-specific products like covers for Kindles, headphones, or the Amazon Echo, but brick-and-mortar stores are potential future options if the model proves to be a revenue-driver.

We recommend Amazon sell what it delivers best: disappointment. To that end, they could stock the following products, straight from their warehouses:

Haribo Sugar-Free Gummy Bears

Nicolas Cage Pillow Case



Get it here.

This Threatening Baby Onesie



Buy it here.

...and anything from this slightly-NSFW list.



Check out Amazon's low rating and reviews on Consumer Affairs' website here, and shop for goods at places that support human rights and living wages here and here.

FINALLY, you might be able to grab some organic kale and get a tattoo of it right there at the store. It's such a pain to have to carry it all the way to a separate tattoo parlor. 

According to USA Today, Whole Foods is launching a "Millennial-focused" branch of stores called Whole Foods 365. The plan is to attract a younger crowd by lowering prices and inviting other businesses into the stores to offer more than just groceries.

What kind of other services will they have? Maybe a bicycle repair shop, a record shop, a craft brewery or even a tattoo parlor. These are merely some of the stereotypical "Millennial" things they have suggested or implied on the website asking established and start-up independent businesses to partner with Whole Foods. 

The stores begin opening in May with plans to open 10 by October 2017.

Is this guy the new "Alex from Target?"

Before the doors busted open on Black Friday last week, this manager stood on the register and delivered a speech to his employees worthy of Gerard Butler in "300."

According to the video description, we as an Internet can refer to him as "Scot from Target."

He may not have Alex's dreamy eyes and Bieber-esque hair, but this guy is going places. See you at the movies Scot, or on the battlefield.

Black Friday is here. With all of the great deals our favorite retailers will be offering, there is always some shopping madness. Here is a video that's compiled Black Fridays past... hopefully this will be a good reminder to take it easy this year... maybe.
