This Nugget Feels Exactly How We Feel About Those Checkpoints At Airport Security

Some might argue with me here, but I say the worst part of flying is going through airport security.
We need TSA agents to keep us safe, and I’m thankful they do everything they can to keep us flying. Sometimes, though, waiting in those lines and gett…

There’s Now A Tinder-Like App For Lonely Moms To Make Friends

On Wednesday morning, Good Morning America shared a segment on an app that’s been floating around for a few months called Peanut. Peanut is being marketed as “Tinder for moms.” Tinder is a hookup app for sexy singles, but Peanut promises something less sexy and more necessary: friendship.

Created by mom and CEO Michelle Kennedy, who previously worked on dating app Bumble, Peanut gives you a platform to meet moms in your area who are desperate for some like-minded companionship. After all, someone has to be the first parent in their friend group, and that can be a difficult transition. 

Kennedy herself went through the same thing when she saw her friends partying on Instagram and realized how lonely she’d gotten. “I just felt like I needed to speak to another woman who was doing the same thing as me,” explained Kennedy on GMA.

Basically, you tell the app a bit about yourself, including a photo and location, and then you can swipe on other moms to see if you have anything in common. Then you’re given the option to wave at them and if they wave back, you start a conversation. People are having surprising reactions to it online, from this guy who wants to know when HE gets an app:

To this very judge-y woman who is ironically telling moms to get off their phones from her Twitter account:

And, unfortunately, quite a few disappointed users:

But don’t despair! Peanut is relatively new, and there was a time when you would see the same guy ten times in a row on Tinder. The more moms who use Peanut, the more likely it is you’ll find someone you can click with. I hope this thing has got a million more users by the time I’m a mom, though I predict I’ll be the last parent in my friend group.

Lactose Intolerant Man Calls Out Starbucks In Hilarious Post From His Toilet

Demit Strato, a man from New York, recently took to the official Starbucks Facebook page to inform them that he was currently attached to his toilet. Why? Strato explains it best…

“This is the second time I ordered a Venti Iced Coffe with Soy Milk this month where the Soy Milk request was ignored and regular milk was instead used,” the man explains. 

“I’ve pooped 11 times since the A.M. My bottom hurts from all the wiping. Do you think I enjoy soy milk? Does anyone enjoy soy milk? Really? I don’t order soy mill because I’m bored and want my drink order to sound fancy. I order soy milk so that my bottom doesn’t blast fire for 4 hours. I’m not a Charmander. Thank you for listening to my rant.”

And of course, he let everyone know where he was writing the post from. 

“P.S. I’m writing this from the comfort OF MY TOILET.”

While Strato probably isn’t having much fun, Facebook users found the post hilarious. It’s since been shared over 35,000 times and garnered more than 110,000 comments. 

“This is so true,” one lactose intolerant commenter wrote. “Sometimes I just order knowing what is to come because lets face it, whole milk makes coffee taste better, and soy is disgusting. So once in a while I order whole milk and let all hell break loose for the taste.” 

Apparently this is a pretty common issue, with another commenter adding: 

“While I admittedly laughed at this complaint for simply the way it’s worded, I have to agree with Demit 1000%. I have ordered my coffees and specifically told them soy. People who don’t regularly consume dairy products can absolutely tell when they’ve ingested dairy. It is certainly not pleasant.  Take better care, Starbucks.”

While Poo-Pourri, a company that makes deodorizing toilet sprays, saw it as an opportunity. 

“Oh crap! We would love to send you some Poo-Pourri to help with your toilet drama,” the company wrote. 

Starbucks has responded to Strato privately. Hopefully he gets soy next time.

Michelle Rodriguez Threatens To Quit ‘Fast & Furious’ Franchise Over Women’s Roles

The Fast and The Furious franchise started out as a silly action movie about cars, but it has exploded into its own world with a seemingly never-ending parade of sequels, each one topping the last when it comes to shooting guns and driving cars into guns, and turning guns into cars, or whatever. 

They’re fun, they’re fast, and they are definitely male dominated. But the movies have featured some awesome women characters, like Michelle Rodriguez in her role as Letty, which she has been recurring in for years. To celebrate the digital release of F8, Rodriguez posted a message to Instagram that has everyone screaming. It’s pictures of her on set, and what some read as a subtle threat that she may be leaving the series.

In the caption, she wrote:

F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one. Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise. It’s been a good ride & Im grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love

Of course, everyone is freaking out on Twitter:

Though some people claim not to know what Rodriguez is even talking about:

Rodriguez’s comments aren’t completely out of left field. In May, she did an interview with Entertainment Weekly, where she seemed to be expressing her frustration with the lack of development for female roles in the series, especially since they’ve done eight of these things already.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How would you characterize your respective characters, and what do you think they mean within the context of women in the series?

MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ: Letty’s a strong woman. She’s a kid who grew up with a socio-economic background that makes you a little bit rough around the edges, I guess. I knew girls like Letty growing up. They’re attracted and loyal to guys like Dominic Toretto because it’s the only way to survive in a place that gets violent — Chicago, New York, Los Angeles. When people are poor, there’s a lot of crime and when there’s lots of crime, you have to watch your back. It gets physical and that’s why it seems like we’ve been stuck in the ’90s for the last [however] many years that we’ve been doing the franchise, because of the macho bravado involved, but that truly is the voice of the urban ghetto. I was hoping that at some point we’d evolve out of that vibe. We made some money — kind of like the rapper who starts reading books and next thing you know, you don’t have to worry about survival anymore, so you stop being so physical and start becoming more intelligent — but it seems that just as we start growing up as individuals, you have countries around the world who are still stuck in that mindset.

She continued, talking about the films’ success in foreign markets, and says that representation is important to her in other countries, as well:

At some point I do hope — knowing a lot of these countries where this franchise is uber successful and that for the first time in recorded history, there are less women on the planet than men — maybe the studios starts to take a look at what the female voice is, because there are less women than men around the world today. Not in America; America has 51 percent female population, but that’s because of violence. It’s because of violence against women and it’s because of a lack of evolution in men in society. I do feel that heavy weight. I’m a complete, sheer, utter feminist. On day one, I [changed] the character from being something that I could not do in front of millions of people into a character that I’m actually proud of, but at the end of the day, what message are we sending out there for women? It does weigh heavy on my head — especially in the male-dominated environment that I work in.

Could we see a women’s strike on the set of The Fast and The Furious 9? Maybe not. After all, The Rock identifies as a feminist, too. He may want more role models for his daughter in his own movies someday.
