The Trump presidency is going to be like nothing we’ve ever seen, and it all starts at the inauguration. While details of the three-day event are still in flux, I’ve got the inside scoop.* Check it out and cower in fear.
We’re just a few days into 2017, but it’s not too early to anticipate what crazy nonsense is going to happen this year. Using the wisdom gained through experience, the knowledge of everything that happened in years past, and a healthy dose of “just making stuff up,” I’ve put together some predictions for the headlines…
Nipton, California, sits just 63 miles from Las Vegas but is worlds away from its gilded, spangled skyline. Surrounded by craggy, gray hills and swathes of nut-brown desert, the unincorporated town hugs the border of the Mojave National Preserve. Amenities include: a general store, a five-room hotel, a restaurant, and…
The holidays are over, yet somehow, you’re more stressed than ever. Your bank account is empty, your back muscles are an impenetrable knot, and your house is a mess. It’s time to focus on you. The below “gifts” are ones you should give yourself, to put your mind and body at ease and start the new year strong.
The new year is a special time when everyone makes resolutions that sound super-positive and ambitious, but are really about covering up last year’s mistakes, like chucking a throw rug over that wine stain on your carpet.
Any doctor will tell you that their bureaucracy burden has only increased over the years. That hurts patients most of all, who struggle to get face time with their health-care providers.
I have a confession to make: Even though I’m a vegetarian, my mouth still waters when there’s bacon popping on the stove. But why? Where does humanity’s bacon-lust emanate from? Why does it taste and smell like the smoky nectar of the gods? Here’s why, according to science.
People who work out a lot tend to talk about exercise like the benefits are obvious. But are they? What exactly are the benefits? Huge arms? Amazing abs? A super-powerful brain muscle? All of the above? Beats me.
We live in an age where one can buy bacon toothpaste, bacon-scented underwear, and bacon soda. Bacon has reached meme status and, along with it, acquired a reputation for being a bit common. But it’d be a damn shame if bacon were relegated to just dude food and internet jokes. The stuff has a long and storied history,…
Bacon is as versatile as it is delicious. You can find it in everything from omelettes to muffins to chocolate bars made by hipster quadruplets. But one of my favorite ways to eat bacon is in the classic, dependable bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. The BLT will never win any awards for “most subversive bacon…
The best part of establishing a workout routine is making it a habit. I’ve been working out Monday–Friday for about a year now, and it’s helped me see exercise as a necessary part of my day, like brushing my teeth.
While I’m notoriously bad at keeping up with a workout routine, leg workouts are my jam. I could do lunges day-in and day-out if need be, until my legs turned into a pair of tree trunks.
Throughout history, women have been pushed to the sidelines in both concrete and more abstract ways. Women earned the right to vote in America in the early 20th century, but the fight for equal rights — and the subsequent protests it has fueled — didn’t end with that victory.
Even in the realm of friendship, history remembers men. No girl squad comes close to trumping bromances of the likes of Plato and Socrates, Lewis and Clark, or Lafayette and Washington. (The Founding Fathers? One giant bromance.)
Professional gamer Dillon “Attach” Price had just turned 18 when he won $100,000 as part of a four-person team competing in the 2015 Call of Duty Championship tournament. Watch this video to meet the esports prodigy, learn some of his gaming strats — and then see him face off 1v1 against host and Foodbeast…
The main problem I have with working out is myself. I can’t keep up with a rigid plan because I get lazy. And look, squats and push-ups are boring.
The results of the Final Fork food bracket are in — and you guys really, really love chicken. (And hate Skyline Chili.) Here’s the winning bracket, distilled from more than 8,000 entries, in all its caloric glory:
The past decade has often been called a golden age of TV. Thanks in part to new streaming services and a wider variety of channels, more higher-quality shows are being made. Why? Because now shows can better afford to speak to smaller audiences without worrying about alienating broad swathes of other people. For that…
Let’s talk about solar power. It’s often a mystifying topic: Installing solar panels can seem daunting and bureaucratic, and, conceptually speaking, using energy from a faraway star to power everything in your home sounds like a utopian fantasy.
Since June I’ve been writing and/or curating this series about European-style endurance racing, from Le Mans to the wider FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). One of the coolest things has been, at the end of each post, kicking the convo over to the readers, and hearing what you guys have to say about motorsports.
