From Geekosystem: There are a lot of ways to get in trouble in high school and, unfortunately, high schoolers tend to be prone to getting in trouble. Between things like skipping class, senior pranks, general goofing off, and skipping class, I think it’s fair to say most of us got in some kind of trouble or another.

You kind of have to see it to believe it. Read the full post/watch the video here.
From The Jane Dough: There are a lot of things that apparently disqualify women from being feminists these days. Wearing heels, putting on lipstick, and compromising for your spouse’s career.
