Shrimp in London are pumped full of cocaine. It’s even worse than it sounds.

Listen, the world is dark and full of unexpected environmental terrors. Climate change is real, coral is being destroyed at a rate so alarming that I now care about coral, and if it weren’t for these polyamorous birds living their best lives, I sometimes feel like I might lose it in the middle of the supermarket. And don’t even get me started on the people out there who think that the world is flat and that the earth isn’t getting dangerously warmer because the eastern states “sure do get a lot of snow.” Now we’ve got to bring shrimp snorting (read: being polluted with)  cocaine into the equation of why our planet is on a really messed up trajectory towards …

Dad shares story about daughter’s scary experience at a college party with star athlete. It’s pretty great.

The NFL is by far America’s favorite sports league, so when its players are charged with a violent crime, it’s front page news.
