Would You Buy This Raptor Egg Candle?

My sister appreciates a good candle. She's the kind of person that spends a concerning amount of money at Yankee Candle and an equally concerning amount of time hanging out in the candle section of any given department store, holding candles like Sugar Cookies, Summer Rain, or Fresh Lavender to her nose like a trained connoisseur in all things home fragrance.
Because I'm the younger sister, and well, younger siblings naturally like to despise everything their older ones are into, I'm not really big on the whole scented candle thing. However, if you were looking to buy me a candle this Christmas, this mystery dinosaur egg is totally more my speed.
Yes, this egg-shaped candle - created by Firebox, the same novelty gift manufacturer that brought you Unicorn Tears-flavored gin - might look pretty unassuming when you first take a look at it, but after you've let the candle burn for a bit, quite a magical thing starts to happen.

"Say hello to my little fren..."

As the wax melts away, a porcelain velociraptor reveals itself, an ornament that you can keep once you're done burning the candle. (Yes, that's right. You get a raptor that - according to the website - is "ready to train to do your bidding". What do you get when you're done burning that White Musk candle? Nothing. Not even one dinosaur.)
If you're ready to take on the task of recreating the weirdest (but secretly coolest) scene from the original 'Jurassic Park' in super super slow motion, you can purchase the candle here (where it's around $45 because it's apparently too awesome to be reasonably priced).

Would you buy this dinosaur egg candle? Or will you wait it out and hope whoever invents the first time machine brings you a real one someday?

What's The Point Of Wearing a Wig Cap And Not Wearing a Wig Cap?
It all depends on your choice. If you feel confident and safe enough, you can always wear a wig without a cap. If you have lost all or only a few hairs, you should wear a wig cap. The wig cap provides extra comfort between the 5x5 closure wig and the head for women with sensitive skin and scalp. Wigs can irritate delicate skin because they are rough. Wig caps can make long curly wigs more comfortable for those who have lost all their hair. benefit: Even if you have a lot of natural hair, wigs can make your scalp feel itchy and embarrassing. The ombre blonde lace front wig cap provides a layer of protection between the wig and the skin. If you have stray hairs under your wig, a wig cap may help. They securely lock all the hair under the wig and prevent any stray hair from escaping. Shortcoming: If you live in a hot climate and can't stand the heat, you should avoid wearing wig caps. When sweat and oil build up on your head, it can lead to a rash and possibly hair loss in the future. Consider the following tips when making a decision: 1. The head area. This varies from person to person, and if you have a bigger head, you may find wig caps rather unpleasant. If you wear a wig cap for a long time, you may get a headache. If you have a smaller head, the wig cap may slip under the wig and cause the wig to fall out. 2. Cotton and nylon wig caps are the most common, although they are not suitable for people with sensitive scalps. And nylon hats can be itchy and uncomfortable. 3. If you live in a hot climate, you may want to avoid wig caps. Adding another layer of cloth makes the heat intolerable. 4. If you must wear a wig cap, make sure it is clean and fit. Tips for Wearing a Wig Without a Hat If you don't want to wear a wig with a wig cap, you should keep the following tips in mind. 1. Choose the right size, wigs that are too tight around the head may cause hair loss and breakage. 2. Don't forget to wash the wig cap to remove debris and bacteria from the hair and scalp. 3. Be sure to wear a wig that allows the scalp to breathe. Wigs without caps are lighter and allow more airflow to the scalp, so capless wigs won't make you feel as hot as standard wig caps. 4. Don't ignore your hairline. To avoid damaging the edges, place the wig cap behind the ear, not forgetting the hairline. 5. If possible, avoid using adhesives to avoid hair loss or breakage near the hairline. 6. If you have a sensitive scalp, you should avoid wearing wigs made from synthetic hair. Excessive itching, burning, and scalp discomfort may be due to the sensitivity of the wig material. 7. Take time for regular haircuts and deep conditioning treatments between wigs.
Stranger Danger: Scary Story From Last Night :/
This happened to me last night and I hope that sharing my story will remind you to be careful, even if you feel very safe in your home. I live in Korea which is a ridiculously safe country. After 4 years I haven't even had anyone (other than one asshole american) cat call me. But a few months ago I had a man try to follow me home. He looked like he was not all there in the head, and I noticed him before I was anywhere near my home and was able to scare him back to where he came from. Last night though I had another creepy experience that could have been any number of things, but it reminded me to be very careful. I live in an apartment building here in Seoul and I know everyone who lives on my floor (there arent that many of us) so I can usually tell who is coming down the hall based on their footsteps. I was waiting for my boyfriend to come over and usually I open the door for him right when he arrives since our key pad is hard to use. Most apartments in Korea use a keypad like this to open the door, not a real key. Usually even though I always beat him to it, my boyfriend at least tries to open the door. But when I heard footsteps come down the hallway and stop at my door, I was surprised he didnt start pressing buttons. For some reason I looked out the peephole and saw the shoulder of a man (i think) with a puffy winter jacket on outside my door. It was similar to my boyfriend so I thought maybe he was just reading an email or something (he can be a scatter brain haha) and paused before opening the door. I waited without saying anything because I usually try to surprise him at the door. But the man stayed still for so long that the lights went off in our hallway (most lights in Korean apartment hallways are motion censored so if theres no movement in the hallway for a while, they go off. I thought that was SUPER weird so I knocked on my door to make the man do something (i still thought it could be my boyfriend) Thats when he disappeared/walked away. At this point I cant remember if I actually saw him turn and move away or if I looked away and when I looked back he was gone. Either way I was freaked out. I texted my boyfriend asking if that was him, and saw I had missed a message from him asking if I wanted snacks. I thought then maybe he came to my home but went back out to grab snacks. Maybe 30 seconds later he was unlocking my door and apologizing for being late. That wasn't him at the door only a minute before. It could have been an innocent mistake, someone got the wrong room number or something, but something about the way they just stood there not moving for so long gave me the creeps. I want to encourage all of you to, even if you're expecting someone at your door, to check first and ask who it is. Needless to say, I slept with the extra lock on my door last night.
Would You Eat This $100 Donut?
You've heard of massive and expensive burgers, 'luxury' brands of chocolate, but are you ready to meet the latest addition to the list of absurdly expensive junk food? Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Golden Cristal Ube Donut - $100 worth of sinful, indulgent carbohydrates. So what makes it so expensive? Well, first off, the donut is topped with a sprinkling of 24-karat gold flakes and a generous spread of Cristal champagne, ranked one of the most expensive champagnes in the world. (You know, the stuff from the 90s hip-hop videos.) And as the restaurant offering the treat - Brooklyn's Manila Social Club - is a Filipino fusion spot, the donut nods to the tradition with an ube mousse and champagne jelly filling. (If you don't know ube, it's a root similar to taro that is grated and used in many Filipino desserts!) In fact, the restaurant's owners, Bjorn DelaCruz and Peter Kappa, were inspired to make the $100 donut after the success of their original taro flavored donut (pictured above), which was in such high demand that the only way customers could purchase them was to order them online two weeks in advance! In an interview with NYC-based food blog First We Feast, DelaCruz ensures potential purchasers that his $100 donuts are the real deal: "When you do order doughnuts from us - anywhere in the Tristate area and all the five boroughs, I will deliver them myself. I understand you're spending money on this. I want you to know it's not just my assistant making these. I take pride in this, and to me it's a piece of art." So have people been ACTUALLY buying this donut? Delacruz doesn't answer, but assures that "there has been enough interest that [they] will continue creating this doughnut throughout the year." But now I want to know: Which one of you foodies out there would actually #treatyoself to the Golden Cristal Ube Donut? Are you down for specialty foods, or are they just another marketing gimmick? Let me know in the comments below, and for more products you didn't know existed, follow my SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY collection!

YouTuber Films Suicide Victim, Doesn't Get Why His Jokes Arent Funny
[tw: mentions suicide] This is Logan Paul, YouTuber and brother of Jake Paul and equally influential YouTuber. He has over 15 million subscribers and makes videos about pranks, extreme sports, and basically living off of all the money he makes. Most of his fans are under the age of 17. He has been posting a video every single day for over a year and plenty have been controversial (one of his most successful videos is when he reacts to seeing color for the first time, but then he later admitted that he lied about being color blind) This week though, even his fans have said he has gone too far. He is currently in Japan and making videos about his trip, but he and his friends headed to Aokigahara, also known as Japan's suicide forest. It's the most popular place to tortured people to end their lives. It is known for its beauty so people do go there just to see the nature, but they went into the restricted section. They go on a visit to the forest intending to focus on the "haunted" aspect of it, he says in the video. After walking a short distance into the forest, the group come across a body. The group is filmed approaching the body, which is shown in several close-ups where only the face is blurred out. A member of the group is heard off camera saying he "doesn't feel good". Paul then asks him: "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?" He then laughs. He then took the time to pose with the man (who is revealed to have just died a few hours before due to the color of his body) in order to get the perfect thumbnail and then posted it on his channel. This is literally what the thumbnail image was: It got over 6 million views. Later in the video they joked that YouTube wouldn't put ads on a video with a dead guy so they might as well take sake shots too (YT has a new strict algorithm about what kind of content can make money and obviously suicide isnt one of them) After the video got a ton of criticism, he took the video down and issued this half ass apology: He later posted a video apology but come on. This is just disgusting. I am so sorry to the family of that victim and to anyone who has been affected by suicide. There is NO excuse for what he did. If it was a live stream and an accident I could understand if he was overwhelmed, forgot to turn the camera off, etc. But this was filmed, edited, and uploaded. He zoomed in and took from different angles. He posed for pictures with the body. He is trash.
