Driver captures terrifying moment semi-truck loses control on icy highway — A driver in central New Jersey came within feet of an out-of-control semi truck.

Cat transfixed with TV is your binge-watching spirit animal — This cat understands your life every weekend. You promise yourself you'll go out and be productive, but Netflix sucks you in every time. The endless stream of obscure documentaries and British crime dramas forces you to sit on the couch, staring blurry-eyed at the television. Well, a Scottish Fold cat in a dress can relate.

17 all-too-real terms that describe riding the subway — It's 8 a.m. on a Tuesday. You're balancing a hot coffee on a crowded train, when it hits you - a smell so putrid, you consider burying your head in a stranger's puffy coat to escape the smell.
