This is what happens to internal organs during a pregnancy


Turns out pregnancy is mildly horrifying when you consider what’s really going on inside the pregnant body.

Take for example this telling GIF of how internal organs shift to make room for a baby in a woman’s uterus

View post on

The GIF, making the rounds on Imgur and Reddit, comes from an interactive tool from the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The tool allows users to follow the pregnant body as it changes from conception to post-pregnancy

In that time, pregnancy pumps the heart harder, squeezes the organs and loosens the muscles and joints. Terrifying? We think so …

How ‘Louie’ started an important conversation about gender roles on TV with an anal sex scene


Before we get to anything else, let’s talk about that scene.

Yep, you know what I’m referring to (and there’s no elegant way to say it): Pamela fingers Louie’s butt in episode 4.

Anal fingering, as it’s called, is pretty self-explanatory, but the uninitiated can head over here for a basic SFW definition.

Although nothing graphic is revealed, the sex scene in question shows Pamela flipping Louie over on his stomach, as one of her hands moves off screen and begins thrusting. Louie then proceeds to yell — whether it’s in agony or ecstasy is unclear, but he’s definitely surprised. What’s more, they do all this while engaging in role-play at Pamela’s insistence: She acts as a gruff man named “Peter”; he becomes a soft-spoken lady laughably named “Joanetha.” (Immediately before this scene, Pamela begs Louie to let her make him up as a woman.) …

First pro tackle for Danny Shelton: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell


Danny Shelton was a little too happy to go pro.

The six-foot-two, 339-pound defensive tackle was overjoyed when he heard that he was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the NFL draft.

He ran up on stage and gave NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a massive bear hug, lifting him a couple feet off the ground.

The season hasn’t even started yet, but Goodell is already trying to get a head start on the stats sheet.

Facebook users donate $10 million to Nepal


Facebook users have proven the “donate now” button on the social platform is an extraordinarily powerful tool.

It has only been two days since the donation button to help the people of Nepal affected by a devastating earthquake went live at the top of Facebook feeds across the world. In that time, more than half a million people have donated and raised more than US$10 million in funds for International Medical Corps (IMC), according to Facebook.

Nepal was devastated on April 25 by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, which killed thousands of people. IMC has been behind the massive global relief effort, as the capital of Kathmandu along with other areas, lie in ruin.
