Instagram is treading the same dangerous lines that Facebook once did, morphing from a cool forum for sharing photos, memories, and ideas to a greedy content-miner itching to share other people’s information without their consent. MySpace was never this cruel!

Sigh. I hope all future babies won’t have inferiority complexes! While life went on for most of us on December 12, 2012 — a momentous (to some) date that marks the last time such a match-up on the calendar will occur until January 1, 2101 in the next century, when we will all be dead — babies lucky enough to be born exactly at 12:12am or pm yesterday are receiving some extra-special attention from astrologists and of course, their parents. These proud parents are convinced that their 12/12/12-born little ones will be undeniably lucky in life. Because that doesn’t set up those babies for failure at all.

Looks like our seemingly futile requests for less obnoxious commercials have begun to have an effect: earlier today, starting at midnight, the volume of advertisements on television must be pre-approved by law so that they don’t surpass a maximum of 2 decibels(db). To mimic the hyper-excited exuberance of those infamous Herbal Essence commercials, all we have to say to this is “Yes! Yes! Yes!”

I’m not quite sure who to reprimand first here: the media for being all to eager to once again equate curvy bodies with the legend of the Hottentot Venus, or tennis player Caroline Wozniacki for believing she was being hilarious by stuffing her shirt and shorts to emulate Serena Williams’ bodacious figure in a recent match. Either way, it was an incredibly stupid move. But was Caroline really being racist in her so-called mimicry of Serena?

The Drink-Savvy date rape drug detector could be your greatest companion at your next party or outing. This Boston-based company intends to create a line of utensils including cups, glassware, stirrers, and straws which can detect anything amiss in your bubbly and promptly change color as a warning. We say “could” because the company still needs to raise the funds to launch their product.
