Of all the gross stuff on ‘Game of Thrones,’ this one scene was almost too much for Jaime Lannister

By Alexis Nedd


There’s been a lot of nasty things on Game of Thrones. Daenerys ate en entire raw horse heart and almost yakked it up. People’s heads and hands got chopped off. That whole weird poop-porridge-poop montage that the world had decided to purge from its collective memory. But of all the gross stuff that’s shown up on Thrones, the show’s own Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says one scene was particularly gross and may have been too much even for him.

Trevor Noah, who’s had just about enough of this shit, cut straight to the chase.

By Shannon Connellan


Imagine singing an emotional duet to “Let It Be” in the car with an actual Beatle.

By Sasha Lekach


Long-haul truck drivers already face plenty of dangers on the road, but if you also happen to be a gay couple or a trans woman emerging from the cab at a gas station or rest stop, these can potentially expand to discrimination, violence, and hate.

That’s why Shelle Lichti, a 25-year veteran of the trucking industry, created an online community for the disparate and wide-ranging truckers who identify as LGBTQ.
