This girl just invented the most genius way to sneak snacks into the movies, and I’m truly in awe of her intellect
Thomas Edison could never

I've said it before and I'll say it again: women are smarter than men. And now, thanks to Twitter user @AngelaBrisk, next time I say that and some dude tries to challenge me I'll have definitive proof that I'm right.
If you've ever tried to bring outside food into a movie theater, you know that AMC and the TSA basically have the same playbook at this point — they will pat you down just to confiscate your Hint of Lime chips (and if you've never tried to bring outside food into a movie theater, you're a narc)!
But one woman dared to dream up an unimpeachable scheme to bring her own snacks to the cinema, and she was generous enough to share it with the world.

Wow. I can't believe I'm alive at the same time as this genius.
There are layers to how fucking good of an idea this is. First of all, it seems to require that you go to a craft store, which is a fun and soothing activity in to begin with. Art is great for the soul.
Secondly, the ruse itself is flawless! Nobody who works at a movie theater is getting paid enough to ask if a customer is pregnant.
Third, the fake stomach is made of styrofoam, which means (I think?) that the food you bring into the theater will be insulated to your liking! Have you ever tried to bring a meatball sub into the movie theater in your purse only to have it get cold by the time the credits are over? No longer!
This tweet only reinforces how important it is that there is room for women in the STEM community, because this concept is a feat of engineering brilliance. I have never felt more confident that we will shatter the glass ceiling than I do right now, and you should too.

Poor, poor Elongated Muskrat. My heart simply breaks for him.…
Your fave is probably as asshole! Here’s a master list of rude celebrity encounters
Dr Phil might have a skrong dick but HE is a complete dick

An ocean of tea is being spilled on this delicious thread about people's worst encounters with celebs. Regular human beings are dishing on their encounters with everyone famous from Mariah Carey (nobody is allowed to make eye contact with her) to Leonardo DiCaprio (flicked a cig at wait staff) to Hillary Swank ("pretentious bitch").

Let’s talk about my weirdest obsession: The Purge and who would survive it
Knowing who would live is my greatest gift
by Amanda Ross
You know that John Waters quote emblazoned on weed-rank tote bags carried by NYU kids all over town? It’s like, “If you go home with someone and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them?” (Awful advice btw illiteracy is the wave for 2018, trust me). My version of that is The Purge. You know, that…
