TwitterFacebook

It can be hard to convey the danger of abstinence-only sex ed programs, but a new set of trading cards is hoping to do exactly that.

How to look at crap on your phone when you don’t have signal this summer

TwitterFacebook

Forget sharks and thunderstorms. For people addicted to their phones, there is no greater threat at the beach than the danger of losing your signal.

More than once I’ve found myself signal-less on the beach with nothing to like or retweet. Sure, there’s almost always an extremely dusty copy of The New Yorker sitting somewhere at the bottom of my bag. But who wants to read real reporting when you can instead consume inaccurate gossip blogs about Kristen Stewart’s relationships? I don’t want…
