Jennifer Lawrence and Hillary Clinton: Hair twins?!/alivingiano/status/440301120859033600!/GlenAllenWalken/status/440300360062619648

Hollywood darling Jennifer Lawrence usually dazzles on the red carpet, but her Oscar style left a bad taste in some fans’ mouths. Looks like her hair pulled a Hillary. Two thumbs down, say viewers.!/CallMeTimme/status/440348120262930432!/delamano/status/440294271468707840!/laura_nelson/status/440301023999975424!/KAthrynLEIGH12/status/440294346139521024

This Weekend To-Do List Will Make Your Week So Much Easier

Or: What to do on Sunday so Monday sucks less.

1. Plan out what you’re going to wear for the week.

Instead of trying to figure out your outfit the night before (or, let’s be real: as you’re scrambling to get out the door in the morning), spend a half hour on Sunday planning ahead. If it helps, use printables to stay visually organized.

2. Prep a make-ahead meal that will last you several days.


Make things like freezer-friendly breakfasts and pre-packed salads in advance, then grab them as you need them during the week.

3. Or make an easy big batch dinner, because leftovers = lifesavers.


Find recipe ideas and more Sunday night slow cooker inspiration here and here.

4. Have a basic idea of what you want to cook later that week too.

This will jumpstart your weekend grocery shopping list. In a recipe rut? Websites like FoodGawker can help. You can also find more useful tips on weeknight meal planning here.

5. And prep what you can in advance:

Make the marinade, or chop the vegetables — the more (tiny) things you can knock out now, the faster you can enjoy a homemade meal later.

6. Get rid of the weekend clutter in your work inbox.



This doesn’t mean responding to every last email. This just means taking a few minutes to clean out anything that came in over the weekend — deleting the junk, archiving the random reply-alls — so come Monday morning, you can start with a fresh(er) slate.

7. Revisit and double-check your calendar.

This way, you can 1) remind yourself of stuff you’ve got coming up that week, and 2) add any goals or extra items to that to-do list. Seeing and writing things out will help — download a free printable calendar here.

8. Take at least ten minutes to completely zone out.


Do this with the help of simple apps like Headspace, or try this meditation exercise.

9. Quickly tidy up the small things.

Load the dishwasher and empty the trash. All those tiny things that can add up to be a big nuisance if you put them off for too long? Do those things now, and don’t let them take more than 20 minutes.

10. Go outside!

Easier said than done when you’re deep in the throes of Netflix, but when you’re chained to your desk the next day, you’ll be glad you got some fresh air.

11. Keep a consistent sleep schedule.

As tempting as it is to sleep in on weekends, an inconsistent sleep schedule can actually be pretty terrible for you. It’s much better to keep a schedule that’s similar to the rest of your week — which ideally means waking up and going to bed at a decent hour. More sleep hacks here.

12. And ditch your phone well before bed.


You’ll have plenty of time during the week to obsessively refresh Twitter.

13. Resist the urge to straight-up hibernate.


Talk to or go see friends and family, or people who you don’t normally get to interact with during the workweek. It will help you mentally differentiate between week vs. weekend — and help you reconnect and recharge.

14. Mentally walk through your Monday morning to-do list:


Write it out if you need to: Keys on the table? Rainboots and umbrella ready by the door? Avoid the morning scramble (and inevitably forgetting something) by mapping things out the night before.

15. And pack what you can the night before:


Your gym clothes, your work bag, your lunch. You’ll be grateful the next morning when you have one less thing to deal with.

Happy weekend!

This Guy Just Threw A Bullet Into Molten Aluminum…On PURPOSE

Curiosity is good to have when it comes to learning about this world’s many wonders, but some people just take it too far.

Like YouTuber The Backyard Scientist, for example. After using a torch to make a bullet explode in his backyard, his curiosity wasn’t satisfied. He wanted to know more. He was itching to find out what would happen if he threw a bullet into molten metal, so he did just that. But some stones should probably just be left unturned.

Do NOT try this at home, people.

Science is great and everything, but maybe you should try pumping the brakes before someone gets hurt.

Vandal Mona Eltahawy tweets pics of pro-Israel poster defaced by cellmates!/monaeltahawy/status/251055559527235584

Cable news commentator Mona Eltahawy drew the support of the Muslim Brotherhood this week for clownishly crying “freedom of expression” while being arrested. Never mind that she was arrested for spray-painting over a pro-Israel poster (and the woman standing in front of it). It’s a shame Dennis Miller already proclaimed Sandra Fluke “Moan of Arc.”

As blogger Aaron Walker notes, free speech, “yer doin’ it wrong.” Vandalism is not a civil right.

Simple question, here, @monaeltahawy Does one have a right to deface a mosque w/o the owner's permission? (psst: the answer is NO)

— Aaron Worthing (@AaronWorthing) September 27, 2012

You have a right to purchase and burn your own flag, not to steal and burn mine. @politaire @monaeltahawy

— Aaron Worthing (@AaronWorthing) September 27, 2012

Or how about this? Can I spray paint "anti-free-speech fascist" on your car without your permission? @monaeltahawy

— Aaron Worthing (@AaronWorthing) September 27, 2012

And she expressed the idea that she shouldn't even be arrested. @politaire @monaeltahawy

— Aaron Worthing (@AaronWorthing) September 27, 2012

Her only crime was … loving graffiti too much?

You are claiming civil disobedience now? okay what unjust law did you refuse to obey? are anti-graffiti laws unjust? @monaeltahawy

— Aaron Worthing (@AaronWorthing) September 27, 2012

No answers from Eltahawy, natch. Constitutional amendments are hard.

And she wasn’t the only one blotting out others’ free speech with her aerosol can of sweet, pink freedom.

5 people arrested in one night for exercising freedom to protest that racist piece of shit poster. The poster's going to need bodyguards!

— Mona Eltahawy (@monaeltahawy) September 26, 2012

Here’s their handiwork:

Here's how Morgan ripped the ad on 49th St, saying "This is fucking New York City!" #FuckRacism

— Mona Eltahawy (@monaeltahawy) September 27, 2012

Morgan ripped more after I took my pic. Later in afternoon,4 people arrested 4 defacing poster w stickers #FuckRacism

— Mona Eltahawy (@monaeltahawy) September 27, 2012

Other defaced posters:

#MySubwayAd is racist

— Ashley VivaSAA Syria (@Way2Wonderland) September 25, 2012

New Yorkers post "RACIST" stickers on anti-Muslim ads on New York's subways. Awesome. #MySubwayAd

— نور (@NMSyria) September 25, 2012

And here’s what the poster looked like before the vandals committed their loving, tolerant and peaceful acts of self-expression.

In any war between civilized man and savage,support the civilized man.Suppport #Israel,defeat Jihad #tcot #lnyhbt #ccot

— Reagan Conservative (@B1g_Tony) September 21, 2012

That? Not freedom of speech. Pink paint over that? FREEEEEEDOM!!!

.@monaeltahawy You don't get this whole "free speech" thing, do you?

— jon gabriel (@exjon) September 27, 2012

America will never have free speech until we let @monaeltahawy censor all the speech she doesn't like.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) September 27, 2012

You're a hero, @monaeltahawy. Your protest reminds me of the time Rosa Parks spray-painted all those other bus passengers.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) September 27, 2012

Mona Eltahawy, a Rosa Parks for our time.
