Lunarly is the self-care box for people who are into crystals

Lunarly Subscription Box
$40/month
The Good

Unlike a lot of subscription boxes • Lunarly sends full-sized items you’ll actually use instead of sample-sized clutter.

The Bad

At $40 a month • the box is more pricey than a lot of other boxes. • Lunarly also doesn’t have clear guidelines for its main goal • intention setting • so it’s confusing for beginners.

The Bottom Line

With every box you get a selection of aesthetically curated, Instagram-spiritual, genuinely nice items. But the box leaves too much unexplained for beginners and seems out of touch for people who are already familiar with sage burning and meditation.

People are sharing their best spill videos after one woman spilled 22 quarts of ranch dressing

A video of a woman accidentally spilling a giant tub of ranch is bringing Twitter users together to share different stories of their own disasters. 

It all started when Twitter user @BorboaGrant shared video of a coworker’s spectacular spill of 22 quarts of ranch.

That clip inspired others to share their own videos of spills caught on camera. The result? Perhaps the greatest thread in Twitter history, and I’m only being slightly hyperbolic. 

man i wonder who would do that 🤔 pic.twitter.com/08Csv3u5qU

Good news everyone, Logan Paul doesn’t actually think the Earth is flat

Logan Paul is many things, but thankfully he is not a flat Earther. 

In a 50-minute, 2-second mockumentary that included a torrid affair with a flat Earther, a betrayal from a roommate, and a rap that rhymes “NASA” with “I think I’m gonna passa,” the YouTube star announced that no, he doesn’t actually think the Earth is flat. 

His much-hyped video— which was promoted as a documentary but turned out to be more of a narrative movie — raised concerns that the older Paul brother had fallen for the conspiracy theory and would spread the lies to his young audience, which is comprised of mostly childrenRead more…

Aggressive Instagramming is ruining Southern California’s super bloom

People trampled California’s poppies for the ‘gram, and ruined it for the rest of us. 

Fields of fiery “super bloom” poppies are lighting up the hills of Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore, a city about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Thanks to uncommonly heavy rains this winter, much of Southern California is seeing a massive burst of wildflower blooms across the state. The poppies in Walker Canyon are so lush, they can be seen from space.

Man returns to his car to find a koala chilling in air-conditioned comfort

Air conditioning is a gift — one that belongs to humans and koalas alike.

Tim Whitrow, an Australian winemaker, was recently visiting a vineyard and left his car door open with teh air conditioning on to help keep his dog cool in the heat. When he returned to the vehicle he found a Koala chilling in the back seat. 

It took a little bit for Whitrow to finally get the koala to leave.

“As I was moving to another part of the vineyard I noticed that someone else was also in the car enjoying the A/C. It took a fair bit of convincing to get the feisty little fella out,” Whitrow wrote on Facebook.

Why anyone would want a koala out of their car and not in their arms, to be held forever, is beyond me. My fantasy pet combination is a dog and a koala. Imagine coming home to not one but two furry things. Read more…

Say hello to this photo of Tim Cook writing on an iPad that was made to be meme’d

Hello, Mr. Apple. Nice to see you back in the meme circuit again.

If you’ve been missing Tim Cook since the Tim Apple meme died down a bit, you’re in luck. Twitter users are trolling the Apple CEO yet again, after he posted a photo of himself writing “hello” on an iPad on Monday morning. 

The iPad in Cook’s hand provided a white canvas that basically screamed “meme me,” so naturally, that’s exactly what his followers did.
