Light up paddleboards are now an essential part of cool kids entering the water. An innovative Miami-based company, NightSUP, has been crafting paddleboards with strips of LED lights. The result is a safer-at-night paddleboarding experience, and a wildly good view of the water and sea life beneath the board. Also, just being on one around sunset provides users with the opportunity for potentially the ... More...

$100 is lunch for two with cocktails for two in NYC, or nearly an entire mortgage payment in Missouri. See where your money is the stretchiest: Granted, this map is not totally perfect because life in NYC is more expensive than Buffalo, but it does a pretty good job of illustrating where the dollar is worth the most in this country. If you’re into, um, life adventures, Missouri is looking pret... More...

Abandoned City Near Paris

On the outskirts of Paris is Goussainville, an abandoned city just to the north. With very few residents left, Goussanville is quickly becoming a decayed and tattered piece of mid-century French history. Goussainville-Vieux Pays was once a postcard perfect town, but less than a year before CDG opened in 1974 a plane crashed into it, destroying several houses and killing six crew and eight locals. The ... More...

Ugandans took part in the 3rd annual gay pride parade on August 9th, 2014 after the invalidation of anti-gay laws. I don’t normally get very political, but some times things happen around the world that require a mention. If you are an upwardly mobile chick living in the US, chances are you have at least one gay friend, if not a bunch of them (and probably one or two ex-boyfriends #amiright?). In the ... More...

This short list of the world’s grossest rivers should help you decide when and where to take a swim. When you live in New York and somebody mentions the world’s grossest rivers, chances are the Hudson River immediately springs to mind. The truth is, while the Hudson is no mountain-fed spring, it is also nowhere near as polluted as many of the rivers in other countries, who have less stringent guid... More...

This short list represents the five worst cities for tourists visiting the United States. When I was growing up, if you had asked me what the worst city in the world is, I probably would have said Panama City, Florida (my hometown, obviously). Now that I’m grown and have traveled a little, I can honestly tell you that the shirtless spring breakers, tadpole catching, and constant exposure to the ... More...

Santa Fe mixes old Western stylings with contemporary luxuries. When the average American person thinks of Santa Fe, New Mexico, their mind’s eye is likely flooded with images of cowboy boots, dirt roads, and Christian Bale singing his epic song from The Newsies. It is hard for many to reconcile this land-locked city with international level arts and culture because frankly, what logic woul... More...

Relive your acid trips of the 1980s at the Happy Rizzi House in Germany. If you are the kind of sexy girl that did so much blow in the 1980s you received a complimentary nose job with purchase, the Happy Rizzi House in Brunswick, Germany is probably a welcome, nostalgic sight. Created by New York pop artist James Rizzi, the day-glo cartoon-inspired buildings are set right in the center of a historic Germ... More...

The Ypsilanti water tower in Michigan was named the world’s most phallic building by Cabinet Magazine. In case you aren’t aware, I like dicks. I like dick-shaped cakes, dick flavored ice cream, and actual dicks, of all shapes and sizes. I pretty much see dicks everywhere I go, so if I ever find myself in Ypsilanti, you can bet your bottom dollar I will be standing in front of the water tower, inst... More...

The city of Palos Verdes, California is chock-full of free-roaming peacocks. Peacocks are my favorite animal, based on the fact that they are beautiful assholes, which I can relate to. So if I ever decide to move to a suburb of California, the Rolling Hills Estates in Palos Verdes will probably be my first choice. Peacocks have had free range of the town for the last 100 years, believed to have come... More...
