This Humane Spider Catcher is Perfect for Arachnophobic Pacifists

I don’t need a Buzzfeed quiz to tell me that the Mean Girls character I most identify with is the “she doesn’t even go here”-girl. I just have a lot of feelings, OK? I talk to my plants like they’re people. They’re named after people , for goodness sake. And I can’t let go of a chair or a car on Craiglist without feeling like I’m abandoning a member of my family. “Is he going to take care of Heidi the Honda? What if she has a miserable life with that guy?,” I ask myself, as if the seats in my car would notice as I did (or even care) how filthy that guy’s pants were.

Home Myths You Probably Thought Were True

You’ve probably heard a lot of home misconceptions over the years—anywhere from the weird (do toilets really flush in different directions based on the hemisphere you’re in?) to the concerning (is standing near your microwave actually bad for you?)—but what are the facts?

This Study Finally Figured Out if Men or Women are Better at Assembling IKEA Furniture

(Image credit: Marisa Vitale )

Almost everyone gets frustrated when they build IKEA furniture, but a group of psychologists wanted to know who actually wins in the battle of the sexes when an Allen wrench is involved. The stereotype goes that men are more adept in the tool belt department, but is that just a generalization or is it actually true? This curiosity started when Petra Hesser, the previous head of IKEA Germany, claimed that women were more efficient at building IKEA’s flat-pack furniture because they took the time to read directions, unlike most men.

Real Life Experiment: Is It Possible to Resist Temptation at Target?

The Experiment: Is it possible to stay on target, at Target?

I’m not an impulse shopper by habit, but when it comes to Target I always seem to lose my godblessed mind (I feel like this is a bad joke setup and I should add ‘amiright ladies?‘). But it’s true. I enter Target and turn into a nut job. So I got to thinking 1) what is it about stores like Target that cause many of us to go bananas and 2) if I really wanted, could I even get through Target without impulse spending? So I hiked up my off-brand yoga pants, bought an overpriced Starbucks latte from the adjoining kiosk and spent a morning investigating…
