Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

Dentist pulled the tooth out yesterday. But it’s always a good idea to demonstrate to your coworkers that you are capable of withstanding a tremendous amount of pain.

Plus it’s always fun to see Tom faint.

Smirk a little

Look him in the eye, look at his junk, and giggle.

Don’t giggle. Men like giggling.

A lot of women resort to giggling while attempting to insult a man out of instinct.

Don’t.

If a man is trying to creep you out and you want to hurt him, fuck off with the giggle. No need to soften the blow. No need to make it cute. If you want to laugh, laugh. Laugh a big, rude, viking’s laugh.
