Ninja’s swoon-worthy coffee maker is only $99 — and has free shipping

Joe, java, jet fuel, go juice, the daily grind — whatever you call it, coffee is life. And when the Turks invented the first coffee pot all the way back in the day, humankind was given the greatest gift of all: a way to finally brew a decent cup at home.  But as with all inventions, we lost our way over time. The simple became overly-complex. The home cuppa was replaced by expensive mocha lattes, trendy pumpkin spice frappuccinos with low fat milk froth, and ridiculous caramel-fused half-caff affogatos, all made by bored, tattoo-covered baristas in crowded, hipster coffeehouses. And that is no way to live.     Read more… More about Coffee, Food And Drink, Kitchen, Mashable Shopping, and Culture …

4 Ridiculous (But Effective) Ways Doctors Used To Save Lives

Without the benefit of hindsight, all medical innovations look like crazy people doing crazily stupid things. The first guy who injected himself with polio was by any definition a madman, but he was a madman who wound up saving millions of people, so it’s all good. But this nobly psychotic approach to healthcare has resulted in a whole slew of really weird procedures that are equal parts learned medicine and witch doctor chicanery. And some of them worked like a charm.

5 Queer People on How They Found Their Chosen Families

It's a fairly common tale in the LGBTQ+ community: Queer people move away from home and build new families of their own. They go to cities, find friends and partners, and form a network. Since many queer individuals are rejected (or just simply tolerated) by their families of origin, this new support network is a place where they can shine and be their authentic selves. Anyone who has ever seen an episode of Pose knows this. Yet, with the spread of social media, messages boards, and apps, the ways in which LGBTQ+ folks find each other has changed dramatically. Some still find their chosen family IRL, but others do it by popping up in someone's DMs. To mark the conclusion …

Justin Bieber Still Has A Tattoo Of His Ex-Girlfriend Selena Gomez In A Rather Awkward Place

There are few things more complicated than relationships. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that even the most complex minds on this planet struggle to comprehend exactly how a relationship works. The reason for this is that every union is different. There are no two partnerships that are the same. Of course, this individualism is extremely important, but at the same time, it presents a lot of problems. Because, whilst we all may like to think that we are accepting creatures when it comes to relationships, we can suddenly find ourselves becoming quite judgemental. Recently, evidence of this has come in the form of pop singer Justin Bieber who has hit the headlines for his intense relationship …
