It’s super dangerous to take a selfie while you’re driving. But since we just can’t survive without those photos, maybe this is the answer?
Chrysler just created a new car called the Portal that takes selfies FOR YOU. There’s a camera mounted in the car that automatically takes pictures of everyone inside and sends those pictures to their phones.
For now, it’s just a concept car, so there’s no word on whether they might really produce it one day . . . or whether they could add the selfie feature to their other cars.
…Now they’re just trying to figure out how to get the car to wear a bikini and make a duck-face.
It’s okay if you’re not a huge fan of Halloween. Just don’t ruin it for the rest of us. According to a new survey, here are the top six ways people take the fun out of Halloween . . .
- Showing up to a costume party in regular clothes. You can get away with it if it’s a kids’ party. But if it’s a party for adults, either wear a costume or stay home.
- Not answering the door for trick-or-treaters. At least leave your porch light off, so they don’t waste their time.
- Refusing to let your kids eat ANY candy. And pretty much everyone thinks it’s lame to hand out non-candy items to OTHER kids, like little bags of popcorn or pencils.
- Refusing to carve a pumpkin. Or refusing to even buy them, because you think it’s a waste of money.
- Refusing to watch a scary movie. Even if you think they’re lame, this is the one time of year you need to get over it.
- Constantly talking about how much you hate Halloween. Again, it’s fine if it’s not your favorite holiday. Just try not to ruin it for everyone else.
We’re basically required by law to be within shouting distance of our kids at all times now. So it’s amazing they get hurt at all. But here’s some stuff to keep in mind while they’re not in school.
It’s the ten things they are most likely to hurt themselves with over the summer . . .
1. B.B. guns. The number of injuries jumped 500% between 2010 and 2012. Apparently those are the most recent stats on it. And it’s partly because they’re more powerful than they used to be.
2. Toys that fly, including drones. You especially have to worry about head injuries.
3. Hoverboards. A doctor at Boston Children’s Hospital helped make the list. And he says on Christmas Day last year, he saw four hoverboard injuries in four hours, including two kids with broken arms, one with a broken leg, and one with a concussion.
4. Baby pools. Small kids can drown in as little as two inches of water, so you really have to pay attention.
5. Flotation devices and water wings. It’s because they give you a false sense of security. So you have to watch kids while they’re swimming, no matter what.
6. Pool covers, because kids can get trapped in them. And not just little kids. Sometimes teenagers jump in pools at night without realizing there’s a cover. So it might be a good idea to keep a light on if you have a pool.
7. Trampolines. A ton of kids hurt themselves on them every summer. And between 2003 and 2013, there were also over 100,000 injuries related to bounce houses.
8. Non-motorized scooters. It might be partly because we’re less likely to make kids wear a helmet when they ride one than when they ride bikes.
9. Cords on clothing, and straps on helmets. Mostly for little kids, because they can get wrapped around their neck. Yes . . . apparently HELMETS are dangerous now too.
10. Toys with small parts. Because they can be a choking hazard.
And this should go without saying, buy you also have to be careful about the SUN. A recent survey found only 25% of kids regularly wear sunblock. And 50% said they’d had at least one sunburn in the past year, which puts them at higher risk of developing skin cancer later in life.
Every year there’s a “World’s Ugliest Dog” contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. Usually the winner is ugly, but also kinda adorable in a way.
Not this time. This dog is just straight up ugly.
The 28th annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest was Friday night, and the winner was a 17-year-old Chinese Crested Chihuahua named SweePee Rambo.
She’s a small black dog who’s BLIND . . . she needs to wear diapers because she’s incontinent . . . she has a blonde mohawk . . . and she has a sore on her leg that was oozing pus during the contest.
Her owner is a 44-year-old guy named Jason Wurtz from Encino, California. He and SweePee won $1,500 . . . and he says it’s going to go toward removing a tumor in her mouth. See, there’s someone out there for everyone.

Whats in your closet?
Most women own a ton of clothes. But that doesn’t mean they actually wear them.
A new survey found the average woman has 103 things in her closet. BUT . . .
- She thinks 33% are too tight.
- 24% are too loose.
- She just flat out HATES 21% of them.
- And 12% are brand new with the tags still on.
- That only leaves 10% that she actually likes and wears . . . about 10 or 11 things. Out of A HUNDRED AND THREE things.
But that’s not all. The survey also found 47% of women say they struggle picking out what to wear to work, and 10% feel DEPRESSED when they open their closet.
(The survey didn’t look into men’s closets.)
