UPS Follows FedEx, Will Start Charging Based On Package Size

When FedEx announced in early May that it would soon begin using both weight and size when determining how much to charge for delivering a parcel, we predicted that UPS would follow suit. Amazingly, Big Brown was able to hold off for an entire month before deciding it also needs to take a package’s dimensions into account for ground shipping. [More]

Have The New Twinkies Been Hit By The Grocery Shrink Ray?

Now that Twinkies have risen from the ashes of the old, bankrupt Hostess, to re-emerge anew on shelves across America today, some die-hard fans of the snack cakes are pointing out one glaring problem — the new Twinkies, they’re… smaller.

Listen, ladies: Despite the fact that you’re pretty darn sure you wear one size at Lululemon, if you’re complaining that the Luon yoga pants are sheer, you’re wrong.

Do Not Mock Your Co-Worker's Tiny Penis While Testing Full-Body Scanners

If you’ve been wondering how much of your body airport full-body scanners actually do reveal, a recent TSA training session in Miami shows the answer: enough for your co-workers to mock the size of your genitals.

Does Your Local Cinema Have IMAX or Just IMAX Lite?

Does Your Local Cinema Have IMAX or Just IMAX Lite?

I can admit this here, and only thousands of people will judge me, but: I’m a sort of a nerd. I was really excited when the Regal Cinema at my local mall started knocking down walls to put in an IMAX theater. And none of this documentary-with-swooping-cameras motion sickness crap you get at the museum IMAX theaters, either—they were showing actual cinematic releases.
