The Most Annoying Liberal Arts School In The U.S. — Hello there, liberal arts college grad! Until we started doing this monumental search for annoying colleges, we had no idea so many of you lurked among us, spreading your pansexual, drug-experimenting, free-thinking ways so insidiously! When this all began, we were just looking for a college we could generically insert into posts that made fun of Williamsburg residents, since Oberlin was getting tired.

48 Books To Read In Your 30s — Ferrante four-book series begins with the narrator, Elena Greco, finding out that her lifelong frenemy Lila has disappeared. The books are a chronicle, in often minute detail, of their lives together growing up in a poor, chaotic neighborhood in Naples.

Merrill Markoe On Dave Letterman, Dick Jokes, & The Love Of A Good Dog — Comedian and writer Merrill Markoe was one of the creators of the David Letterman Show. Now she writes books about talking dogs and makes funny short videos. She spoke with Doree Shafrir about her career, and the strangeness of Hollywood. How did you come up with Stupid Pet Tricks? Oh, jeez.

That Taylor Swift Fantasy Life Can Be Yours — A little more than halfway through Taylor Swift's sold-out concert Saturday night at the Staples Center in L.A. - after she had sung a duet of her 2008 song "White Horse" with Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba but before she brought Chris Rock, Matt LeBlanc, and model Sean O'Pry to "walk the runway" while she sang "Style" - she stood in front of the 15,000-person crowd and had a little chat with everyone there.

TODO: 'Six Feet Under' Box Set — TODO is one daily thing recommended for you, by us. Being late to the party on good television shows has its pluses and minuses. On the one hand, you don't have to participate in annoying office chatter about what happened on, say, Deadwood the night before.

Meet The Most Honest Teenage Girl You’ve Ever Seen On Screen — The moment I knew that Diary of a Teenage Girl was going to speak to me on a deep, important, possibly spiritual level came right at the opening scene, when 15-year-old Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) walks through a San Francisco park, backpack on her shoulders, bell bottoms a-flaring, her eyes shining, and says, in an exuberant, satisfied voiceover, "I had sex today."

37 Surefire Signs You Went To College In The '90s — Japan marks the 70th anniversary of the world's first atomic bombing over Hiroshima. A suicide bomber killed at least 13 people during prayer time at a mosque in Saudi Arabia.

¿Más de 30 y soltero? Lo mejor que te puede pasar es Tinder — Tinder es "estúpido y dañino, no hace más que entorpecer las relaciones sentimentales". También es "una fábrica, y no puedes pretender algo romántico ni ahí". Y no olvidemos que " la consecuencia adulta de vivir con nuestras propias elecciones casi no existe cuando la mejor opción está a una compatibilidad de distancia."

If You're Over 30 And Single, You Should Be Using Tinder — Tinder is " stupid and harmful because it only makes romantic human connection harder." It is also " a factory and you shouldn't pretend it's even vaguely romantic." And let's not forget that " the adult consequence of living with one's decisions doesn't really exist when the next best thing is only a swipe away."
