Half Of Interns Are Victims Of This Illegal Act After College. It's Really Not OK.

In 2005, when I graduated from college, I moved to New York. While I was looking for a job, one opened up that I would have likely tripped my mother to get — but it was an unpaid internship. Being from humble beginnings, there’s no way I could live in a big city without being paid. And unless you actually don’t need a job, who actually can?

If you liked this cartoon (and who wouldn’t — unless you’ve hired interns and didn’t pay them, in which case BOO), you should Like its creator, Matt Bors, on Facebook. He’s super, ain’t he?

I would love it if you shared this so that people are aware of what millennials (like me) are facing these days.

New York Times Animation Explains How Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Made With No Actual Pumpkin Anymore

New York Times Animation Explains How Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Made With No Actual Pumpkin Anymore

As the web has seen before, pumpkins seem to invade every coffee shop and bakery every November. 

But, The New York Times explains in this new animation that all those yummy pumpkin drinks and baked goods contain less and less actual pumpkin than ever. 

So why do we all seem to buy at least one pumpkin spiced latte or doughnut every year.

It seems we can’t help but fall for the classic marketing trick McDonalds has mastered so well with their McRib.

We simply can’t resist a limited time offer.

The Poop Cycle Educational Animation

Poop. Everyone does it and no one wants to talk about it. But with the Internet dividing them from their audience, Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown of AsapSCIENCE weren’t embarrassed at all to discuss The Poop Cycle

Ironically enough, South Park covered the topic as well in the season 4 Christmas song The Circle Of Poo

Feminist Women Care About Men. This Cartoon Proves It.

The Big Finish of this cartoon is an is an explanation of why it’s OK that some women sometimes say “I hate men!”

Harsh, right? Well…

After reading this cartoon, I’m thinking harder about what “men” really *really* means, and how the idea of “being a man” might even be annoying to those who identify as male. I *still* don’t think anyone should be screaming hate in any direction … but I understand the deal a little better now.

Understanding — it’s what’s for dinner. After you read your cartoons!

Just to set this up: Turns out (those who identify as) boys have just as many expectations of conformity thrown at them as ladies. Anyone who has all sorts of external cues thrown in their face (aka not just cis-boys or cis-girls but all humans) might find it a little harder to be internally chill, OK?

Then everyone’s trying to live up to a thing (being a good man, etc…) that’s not even real! Here’s a question to ponder: Why is society all into making good men and not just good humans?! I don’t know the answer.

This is my favorite part. I *love* looking behind someone’s angry words to really understand why they’re saying them.

Why Is Yawning Contagious

Why Is Yawning Contagious

Back in May, YouTube prankster Roman Atwood traveled the world, and took advantage of his trip to get people across the globe to ‘catch’ his yawn. And it worked, as the subsequent video garnered over 4 million views.

Now, educational channel TED-Ed has gone viral with a more scientific approach to the yawn, and explains why yawning is so contagious

Graphic French AIDS Awareness Cartoon

This fake vintage cartoon shows a randy cat doing the deed with anything alive. It’s actually as graphic as possible without going over the line, but it sure walks on the line. The cat does it with dolphins, birds, pigs, anything. What’s the point of the animation? The cat has nine lives, but you only have one. So use protection while hooking up. I don’t think this would fly in America.
