Sit back and enjoy the most gorgeous time-lapse video you’ve ever seen

time-lapse video

There's just something about time-lapse videos that mesmerizes us, but despite companies like Apple building time-lapse recording features right into their devices, not everyone is skilled enough to actually make a decent one.

Please Don’t ‘Glue’ Your Vagina Shut During Your Period 

An obviously male doctor in Kansas thinks that as an alternative to pesky and unseemly tampons, women should basically start gluing their vaginas shut. In case the word “glue” next to “vagina” didn’t already made this apparent, this is a very, very bad idea. And before you ask, no, he is not joking.
