Warning: the video above shows graphic footage of rib-removal surgery.
Think Disney characters are giving women body image issues? This woman may very well be the proof.
Former electrician and current model Pixee Fox underwent a surgery to remove six of her ribs so that she could look more like her animated heroes Tinker Bell, Sleeping Beauty, and Jessica Rabbit. After the surgery, Fox has been able to achieve a 16 inch waist by wearing a corset 24 hours a day, but she hopes to train down to 14 inches, enabling her to break the current world record. In addition to her rib surgery, Pixee Fox has also had cosmetic surgery on her nose, eyelids, lips, brows, labia, cheeks, boobs, and butt.
As if having a courier deliver booze to you within an hour wasn't enough, Amazon has announced Amazon Prime Air, a near-instant service that will bring your impulse buys to you by drone!
Amazon Prime Air is a future service that will deliver packages up to five pounds in 30 minutes or less using small drones. Flying under 400 feet and weighing less than 55 pounds, Prime Air vehicles will take advantage of sophisticated “sense and avoid” technology, as well as a high degree of automation, to safely operate beyond the line of sight to distances of 10 miles or more.
No word yet on when the service will become publicly available, as Amazon says it will take time to implement, "but [they] will deploy when [they] have the regulatory support needed to realize [their] vision."
Thirty minutes or less means an unmanned drone will bring me ice cream before it has a chance to melt, right?
The normally horrible folks over at 4Chan have actually done something pretty awesome.
While ISIS is busy trying to terrorize the whole world, 4Chan users thought it might be time to bring the group down a couple notches and treat them like what they really are—ridiculous idiots.
What better way to mock an organization that sees itself as super tough? Turn them into cute little rubber duckies.
Reese's has released its Christmas tree peanut butter cup, and people have a lot of feelings about them.
Mainly, they want to know what the heck they're looking at. Because these definitely don't resemble anything close to a Christmas tree.
Explain yourself, Reese's.
Or should you we say: Explain yourself, Grinch!
If you're the kind of person who impulse buys a good deal on Black Friday without really seeing what you're getting, you may have just bought a whole lot of nothing from Cards Against Humanity. Then again, you were probably also one of the more than 30,000 people who bought actual poop from them last Black Friday.
Cards Against Humanity, the troll kings of Black Friday, are offering a special $5 deal on absolutely nothing! As in, you give them five dollars and get nothing back. Apparently they've also closed real sales of their product today, which has at least one former-fan pretty furious:
Something tells me that if this stunt was enough to turn this guy off of CAH, he probably wouldn't have enjoyed the game to begin with.
You may remember seeing this video back in October of Fox News hosts poking fun at Star Wars fans who were losing their minds over The Force Awakens. One of the contributors, Katherine Timpf, made a joke that she wasn't familiar with the series because she was "too busy liking cool things and being attractive," and has been receiving death threats ever since.
It was a pretty rude thing to say, but it's certainly nothing anyone should receive death threats over, many of which looked like this:
Guardian978: I want to cut that blonde c***’s face off and stick it to a thermal detonator. What a network full of c***s.
dethklok21: Wow what a f***ing thunder c***. I hope this b**** gets hit by a f***ing car.
Even in the face of rabid death threats, Timpf refuses to apologize: "I’m sick of oversensitive mobs in our overly sensitive society bullying people into saying that they’re sorry over jokes — even if the subject of the joke is something as serious as Star Wars. So, for that reason, I will not apologize."
Timpf is still receiving a slew of salty messages over a month later, but she's taking it in stride.
