Science Is Trying To Figure Out the Best Instagram Filters (Yes, Really)

Science has taken a break from silly matters like curing AIDS or cancer and is focusing its attention on the important things—namely, Instagram. Researchers are turning their incisive gaze to the world of social media—specifically the effects of using different filters on one's Instagram photos, reports NYMag. The study, which was helmed by four scientists and is titled Why We Filter Our Photos and How It Impacts Engagement, seeks to figure out if the filters we used had any affect on the way people interacted with them. As fate would have it, it does. They studied 7.6 million photos see more

Brendon Babenzien on Life After Supreme, Relaunching Noah, and His NYC Pop-Up Store

When news broke in February that Supreme's then-creative director Brendon Babenzien would leave the streetwear brand to restart his own label Noah, he took some of his followers by surprise. But to hear him tell it, his decision couldn't have made more sense. "The timing was really good because I just had my daughter" he told us at the site of his new pop-up shop, at 393 Broadway in New York City, which he's running in collaboration with Union's Chris Gibbs. "She's only six weeks old, and I was present for those six weeks. I've spent a lot more time see more

For Todd Barket and Carl Chiara, founders of San Francisco-based menswear boutique Unionmade, their brand filter boils down to a simple formula: quality first, then timelessness. "So much of fashion now is fast and cheap," says Barket. "We believe the best things in our wardrobes get better with age. If you're going to spend more on a garment, we want you to wear it years from now and still realize how nice it is. We may not be of-the-moment, but we believe in being authentic and effortless."

5 Super-Effective Biceps Exercises That Aren't Curls

Dumbbell curls, incline curls, cable curls, preacher curls, barbell curls—most guys' biceps workouts are pretty redundant, boring, and, most important, ineffective. "For growing size, curls come up short," says strength coach Kourtney A. Thomas, C.S.C.S., owner of Lagniappe Fitness in St. Louis. "Part of the problem is that they only work one section of the biceps effectively." That's the section that runs on the outside of your arm and gives you a big (okay, let's be honest, little) bump when you flex your arm. However, multiple muscles comprise your biceps, and for the strongest and sexiest of arms, you see more

Millennials Would Rather Drink Wine Than Beer

Oh, the youths! Guzzling watered-down brewskis and doing keg stands are such Generation X sorts of things to take part in. Millennials much prefer to sip glasses of highfalutin wines or slurp cocktails made with artisanal bitters, obviously. Data shows that millennials, who are very gay, are turning their backs on beer in favor of wine and liquor, says Business Insider. And when they do partake in beer? They're opting for craft beers over pale lagers. We, of course, saw the writing on the wall a while ago, which is why you can read our recently published story on see more

Watch David Letterman's Final Sign-off

Last night, after 33 years and more than 6,000 shows, David Letterman finally wrapped up his run as host of the Late Show. It was, truly, the end of an era. And while oceans of ink are certainly being spilled over the sardonic host's legacy, his final moments cut through all the chatter like a knife. Like the decades that preceded it, the final send-off was both sweet and just a little sharp, a reminder that, at 68 years old, there's still some bite in the old boy. Watch the final moments, above. see more

Will Alexander McQueen Be on Britain's Next £20 Note?

The Bank of England wants to put a visual artist on its new £20 notes, and one of the first names to pop up as a possibility is the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen. The Telegraph reports that the bank wants to replace its current £20 note figure, Adam Smith (who you may remember from your high-school macroeconomics course as the guy who gave us the term "the invisible hand"), with one of the "individuals within the field of visual arts whose work shaped British thought, innovation, leadership, values and society and who continue to inspire people today." McQueen certainly see more

Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Tina Fey, and More Read Letterman's Last "Top 10 List"

We've known David Letterman would be leaving us for quite some time now, but that doesn't mean his series finale still wasn't a highly emotional—and highly hilarious—affair. There's just something about knowing you're watching the last-ever "Top 10 List" that makes every entry wittier than the last—or maybe it was just because 10 of Dave's funniest famous friends came out to read them. "Top 10 Things I've Always Wanted to Say to David Letterman" started out with Alec Baldwin ("Of all the talk shows, yours is most geographically convenient to my home") and ended with Bill Murray ("I'll never see more
