When you’re forced to travel for work, you generally want to spend your time mid-air catching up on sleep or perhaps looking over some documents. Rarely do you want to chat with the random dude sitting next to you about his favorite Justin Bieber song. Lucky for us, though, social media is here to save the day!

In case you missed last night’s Republican debate (which would be sad because it was highly entertaining), and feel left out because you were watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory instead of listening to the Gingrich-Santorum birth control craziness, here’s a video of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on this morning’s episode of MSNBC’s Morning Joe to fill you in.

Apparently, a casino in Florida has been offering money to patrons depending on how much they weigh. More specifically, they’ve been shelling out 10 cents for each pound.

Even though pundits claim the economy is improving and the jobless rate is falling, let’s face the facts- it’s still really tough to find a job, and anything that makes you stand out of the crowd could mean a world of difference. You could always pull a Hillary and literally stand out or you could try to write a highly personalized cover letter to set yourself apart. Instead, why not emulate Alice Lee, the UPenn student who brilliantly applied for a job at Instagram?

More women than ever before are practicing their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Here at The Jane Dough, we decided to come up with reasons for why the NRA would proclaim that women represent the largest demographic increase in gun ownership in the past three years. Perhaps women’s newfound interest in gun ownership is due to a desire to protect themselves; perhaps it’s inspired by Sarah Palin’s hunting excursions; or, perhaps it’s due to an explosion (pardon the pun) of lady-themed guns and gun accessories?

Remember when we told you that your stylish high heels were actually ruining your ability to move and function as a human? Turns out Your entire wardrobe is a death trap.

Well, we’ve heard this one before. The reason women aren’t succeeding in “such-and-such” career is because the minute they have kids, they give up whatever professional aspirations they had in order to be full-time moms. Not that there’s anything wrong with that– to each his (or her) own– but we are getting fed up this easy biological-clock-dismissal. And now, taking it one step further along the same well-trodden path, researchers at Cornell University have decided to explain why there are so few women in math-related careers.

In case you hadn’t heard already, it’s officially time to retire the retro housewife stereotype — you know, the one where she’s sneaking away with her husband’s credit card to hit the racks, hoping he won’t notice the extra large bill the next month? Women of all generations are becoming more financially self reliant, and are much less likely to accept help from their husbands, or any other family member for that matter, when in economic straits, according to a new survey from MetLife.

Well, gosh darn it, they’ve done it again. Just when we thought PETA had realized that promoting their meatless agenda with incredibly offensive ad campaigns is perhaps not the greatest idea, they’ve launched a new one. Seriously, what is up with PETA and their ability to horrify us with each new ad?
