Target Is Going Gender-Neutral, Kids

Target is tired of labels. The big-box retailer announced last week that it would be eliminating gender-based signage in its stores, specifically in the kids' bedding and toy sections. "In the kids' Bedding area, signs will no longer feature suggestions for boys or girls, just kids," the brand said in a statement. "In the Toys aisles, we'll also remove reference to gender, including the use of pink, blue, yellow or green paper on the back walls of our shelves."

Did Shakespeare Smoke Weed?

Forensic researchers in South Africa have harnessed the power to look back in time and answer life's pressing questions, such as: Was Shakespeare a stoner? A process called gas chromatography mass spectrometry is helping the Pretoria-based team analyze clay pipes and pipe fragments excavated from Shakespeare's garden in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, according to The Independent. Applying the process to Shakespeare's wares, as well as others from the area, the team's goal is to find out what, exactly, was smoked in them. Apparently, not only was it common during Shakespeare's lifetime to smoke tobacco as we know it today (North American nicotiana), see more

Cute (and Creepy): Man Steals His Wife's Pee, Then Tells Her She's Pregnant—on YouTube

A fact about being married is that many things suddenly become shared property. Fridge, toothpaste, bank account—unless your Mrs. gives you a Seamless allowance and a husband bonus, these things are all pretty much considered yours to dip into. One thing that doesn't function like a penny tray is the toilet bowl. In other words, if your wife takes a pee, you probably shouldn't steal her pee. And you definitely shouldn't steal her pee with the intention of finding out whether she's pregnant, filming a video of her reaction when you tell her that she is indeed pregnant, and see more
