15 Sleepwalkers Share the Best (or Worst) Things They Did While Asleep

Personally, I think sleepwalking (also called somnambulism, which is a really fun word to say) is awesome. I’ve never seen anyone do it before, but I once overheard my camp bunkmate muttering to himself in his sleep – in German. It was totally freaky.

15 Outrageous Bits of Advice from Grandmas

I get a little annoyed when people talk about the elderly like they’re shocked these folks have lived lives. They’re not teddy bears, they’re not cartoon characters, they’re human beings with vastly more experience on this planet than the people patronizing them.

In it, self-proclaimed psychic Edward would use a series of what are basically just parlor tricks to make it seem as though he was talking to the dead. Boring. I’d be...

People Answer the Question: Would You Spectate From the Afterlife?

There’s an ancient superstition that says if you see at least ten good memes in one day, and you make a wish upon the tenth one, you will have good luck for the following seven weeks. Usually I don’t go in for superstitions, but considering this one came about in ancient times when there were...
