Passive agressives rejoice!

A new service called "ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com" launched (and crashed) this week, offering to enact revenge for you by sending packets of glitter and a note to anyone you dislike.

The company says their hatred of glitter (i.e the "herpes of the craft world") is what inspired them to start the service, because it's nearly impossible to clean up.

Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann and Newt Gingrich all know what we're talking about.

It costs $9.99 Australian dollars (or about $8.15 in the United States), and anyone who wants to use the service just fills out a short form with the contact info for whomever they want to glitter bomb.

They will then "vomit up a tonne of glitter" and send it to your arch nemesis.

"There's someone in your life right now who you fucking hate," they write on the site. "Whether it be your shitty neighbour, a family member or that b*tch Amy down the road who thinks it's cool to invite you to High Tea but not provide any weed."

ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com was bombarded this week with requests after Monday's launch, and it says that purchases are temporarily suspended as a result.

Slate interviewed the founder, a 22-year-old internet marketer from Australia named Mathew Carpenter, who says the response was overwhelming.

"Over 2,000 of the world's brightest people have spent money on this service," he said. "It's good for business, but bad for society."

Animal of the Day: Tortoise Can Walk Again Thanks to Lego Wheelchair

Blade is a spur-thighed tortoise who can’t walk on his own due to a bone metabolism disorder. His heavy shell puts too much strain on his weak legs.

So a German vet name Dr. Carsten Plischke decided to build him a tiny wheelchair made out of his son’s Legos.

He glued the blocks to the bottom of his shell, and with the extra support, he can now glide around much easier while building up strength in his legs.

The video is in German, but the overwhelming cuteness transcends all languages.

For the next iteration how about we upgrade him to a sweet Lego DeLorian?

Innovation of the Day: Bill Gates Drinks Water Extracted From Raw Sewage

Back in November, Bill Gates visited a plant that turns poop into water, and he took a nice big gulp.

The machine is called an Omniprocessor, and it uses a steam engine to convert raw sewage into electricity, clean drinking water and ash. On top of that, it produces enough excess energy to power itself.

He wrote about the experience on his blog:

"I watched the piles of feces go up the conveyer belt and drop into a large bin. They made their way through the machine, getting boiled and treated. A few minutes later I took a long taste of the end result: a glass of delicious drinking water."

The visit was part of The Gates Foundation's efforts to improve sanitation in poor countries. A few years ago, he asked people to try to reinvent the toilet as a possible solution to the problem.

The Omniprocessor was built by the Seattle-based Janicki Bioenergy, which will be conducting a pilot test of the machine in Dakar, Senegal in late 2015.

So how did the water taste?

"The water tasted as good as any I've had out of a bottle," Gates writes. "And having studied the engineering behind it, I would happily drink it every day. It's that safe."

Who would have thought that Gaston of all people would end up becoming the breakout viral star at Disney World?

Some tough guy recently decided it would be a good idea to challenge the buff "Beauty & The Beast" character to a friendly little push-up contest, but he was wrong.

Gaston may be sexist and arrogant, be he's got some pretty big muscles.

You might recognize the actor from another recent video where he goes head-to-head with a very pugnacious little girl..

Here's the "Pitch Perfect" way to shoot off your finger.

Jim Huish from the Tennessee-based band Amber's Drive recently performed Anna Kendrick's hit single "Cups."

But instead of using actual cups, he opted for an AR15, an AK47 (AK74), a CZ75 and a Walther P22.

There are still some Solo cups involved, but they just get riddled with bullets.

While most young people would be super excited to unwrap an Apple iPhone box on Christmas day, Grandma was not so pleased.

"I'm really not equipped to handle this," she said, noting that she uses a landline.

Fortunately for her, it wasn't exactly an iPhone, but it was still pretty sweet.

The Queensland Police Service is having a little fun at Nickelback's expense this Christmas.

The cops posted this photo of one of their recently unwrapped CDs on Facebook along with the following message:

Police media team report a suspicious package has been received as part of the office secret Santa. It will now be destroyed

Apparently hating on Nickelback has now become an international pastime.

Sorry Chad.
