Don’t Let FOMO Ruin Animal Crossing: New Horizons For You

Don’t Let FOMO Ruin Animal Crossing: New Horizons For You

I had my first opportunity to try out some online play in Animal Crossing: New Horizons the weekend before last. My sister and my friend visited my island so I could give them some of the stuff I had accrued during my extra two weeks with the game. They grabbed new fits at the Able Sisters clothing shop, which had yet to arrive in their games, and marveled at how big my house was. Afterward,...

A Definitive Ranking of All the Jezebel Pets, As Judged by 3 Kids

A Definitive Ranking of All the Jezebel Pets, As Judged by 3 Kids

Last week, and largely because controlled low-stakes chaos and petty drama is a soothing balm right now, I embarked upon a quest that could ultimately tear the Jezebel staff apart—I decided to finally, after years of all of us tiptoeing around this verboten third rail, investigate the answer to this very important question: which pet, of all of the Jezebel pets, is the best pet?

The party line...

The Worst Opponents In Call Of Duty: Warzone Are The Cheaters

Hackers and map exploits are already frustrating players in Modern Warfare’s new “Warzone” battle royale.

Readers may not be surprised to hear about hackers running rampant in a free-to-play title, but many Warzone players have been taken aback by how quickly these encounters have emerged in such a newly released Call of Duty title. Warzone launched almost three weeks ago as a free-to-play...

People Are Stealing Jeep Cherokee XJs In The Middle Of A Pandemic And It's Just Messed Up

“Here we are in the midst of a pandemic crisis, my best-est little bud almost died and my ‘97 XJ was stolen,” reader Mike Dyer wrote in a depressing email titled “My girlfriend’s puppy nearly died and then some @$$-hat stole my ‘97 XJ.” This is not right, and I, for one, won’t stand for it.

Before discussing Mike’s situation, I’ll point out that on March 24th, just one day after I received...

Van Gogh Painting Stolen Amid Coronavirus Shutdown, Museum Director ‘Incredibly Pissed’

On Monday, a Dutch museum announced that a painting by Vincent Van Gogh was missing after thieves broke into the building in an early-morning raid. Lentetuin, painted by Van Gogh in the spring of 1884, was on loan to the Singer Laren museum, which closed its doors earlier this month due to the risks of covid-19.

“I’m shocked and incredibly pissed off,” said museum director Jan Rudolph de Lorm...

Astrophysicist Gets Magnets Stuck in His Nose While Trying to Invent Face-Touching Alarm

Men on the forefront of scientific discovery do not fear risking life and limb, be it drinking the vomit of a sick man or dosing themselves with LSD. One astrophysicist followed in their footsteps in the name of covid-19 health research and ended up with magnets up his nose, at risk of a horrifying and violent death. He is okay.

As the Guardian first reported, Daniel Reardon of Australia was...

The Unashamed Empathy of Literature's Original Horse Girl

The Unashamed Empathy of Literature's Original Horse Girl

Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty (1877) is not often a novel that comes to mind when we think about Victorian literature. There are no youths entangled in agonized romantic longing, nor plucky orphans determined to distinguish themselves in a rapidly industrializing London, nor labyrinthine mysteries surrounding inherited wealth or parentage. No wives are imprisoned in attics (thank goodness), and...

Melt Anchovies Into Butter and Put That Butter in Everything

Melt Anchovies Into Butter and Put That Butter in Everything

Since canned food is having a big moment, I’d say now is the time to reconsider the humble canned anchovy. They have a reputation for being overwhelmingly fishy and salty—and those rumors aren’t exactly untrue—but they also possess a deep minerality and ton of umami. When melted into butter (or olive oil), you can harness the little fish’s intense nature to bring a wallop of flavor to any...

Liberty University Reopens and to the Surprise of No One With a Brain, Students Start Getting Sick

Is it really that hard to err on the side of caution during a crisis? Doesn’t that seem like the bare minimum that can be done to keep the general public safe until the threat of a global pandemic passes?

Well, Jerry Falwell Jr., president of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. didn’t appear to believe so when he made the decision to reopen his school last week, risking the health of the...

We can only hope this cover of Joe Exotic's "I Saw A Tiger" is the first of many

Joe Exotic, if the Netflix docuseries Tiger King is anything to go by, is a terrible person . Aside from the obvious issues with keeping wild animals captive for profit, Joe seems to have emotionally and physically manipulated his husbands with drugs and probably put a hit out on his big cat world nemesis, Carole Baskin. And yet, just like other famous musically-inclined scumbags Charles...

Trump's Sexism Is Going to Get People Killed in Michigan

Trump's Sexism Is Going to Get People Killed in Michigan

President Trump is waging war against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. She fits the qualifications of the ideal Trump villain: She’s a Democrat, she’s a woman, and she declines to show the same deference towards him as most of his sycophants. But Trump’s disdain toward Whitmer isn’t just run-of-the-mill hostility and pettiness unfolding for public consumption; it’s a form of gendered...

Devil in disguise: Who's inside Charlotte Hale's head on Westworld?

Westworld is playing a different game in season three—Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s sci-fi drama (née Western) is much more forthcoming in its storytelling, and more restrained in its number of timelines and perspective-shifting flashbacks. As Zack Handlen notes in his review of the third episode, “The Absence Of Field ,” the series has “reinvented itself; in leaving the park, it’s...

Thankfully, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman has an exciting opportunity if you can just hang in there until this afternoon: a live watch party to celebrate the 30th...
