A new viral ‘trend’ is just guys launching their cats into the air and hurting them
What the hell is going on
People are always going to think that teens have literally lost it when a new trend emerges – even if it's as innocent as wearing silly bands or bonging Mountain Dew outside the post office.
But the latest teen trend – throwing cats into the air so hard they break their legs when they land – makes absolutely no sense unless you're fucking evil.

QUIZ: Make a couple of predictions and we’ll tell you if you’re like, psychic
Your fate is in our hands
by Caroline Phinney
Why did so many of our childhood made-for-TV movies revolve around psychic abilities? Is because kids are stupid and need fuel for constant games of pretend in the backyard while our parents drank wine?
