Alex Jones has been accused of sexual harassment and bullying by a “number of employees.” Jones, who is full of shit, denies the charges. (Mother Jones)

This article about ‘law-abiding gun owners’ is so good. Right out of the gate: “I’m tired of taking them into consideration…There are no more seats left on my Consideration Bus. There are too many coffins onboard these days.” (Esquire)

Speaking of, Dick’s Sporting Goods made the decision to stop selling guns to anyone under the age of 21, and they will also stop selling assault rifles altogether. If the government is too chickenshit to do anything about it, I guess the private sector will have to take the lead. (Wal-Mart has also decided not to sell guns to those under 21) (Gizmodo)

People are throwing a lot of shade at Barbra Streisand for cloning her dog, but you know what? If I had that kind of cash? I’d do the same. No shame. (Celebitchy)

Armie Hammer is sexist AND petty. Not a winning combination, that. (Lainey Gossip)

Our amazing Jodi Smith wrote a very good piece about how you’ll handle the zombie apocalypse based on your zodiac sign. Me? According to Jodi, I’d have “built up a small cult around their tenets of harmony, peace, and fair-minded practices”. She knows me well, our Jodi. Go show her some love, then come back to join my cult. (Ranker)

You know how black cats get adopted less often due to the superstitious nonsense? Well, not anymore! Apparently, Black Panther has inspired people to adopt all-black kitties. Yay! I still want an actual panther though. (Bustle)

Last year, Evan Rachel Wood shared 21 Lessons She Learned In Her 20s which made me fall head over heels in love with her. Now she’s speaking out about why she can’t speak out about her abusers. (The Cut)

I tried listening to Alec Baldwin’s podcast, and it is monotonous and uninspired. Now he’s getting his own talk show. (Why?) You can catch a sneak peek of it this Sunday. (Dlisted)

Serena Williams is a gem but her husband? Also a gem! Look at these billboards he posted for her. I mean, it’s way over the top, but what else do you do for the greatest athlete of all time? (The Root)

If you’re curious what PwC is doing to prevent another Oscar envelope oopsy-daisy, here are the steps they’ve taken. (The Wrap)

I used to work at a music store (it was exactly like Empire Records, except with instruments instead of CDs) and in my free time, I’d pull a Martin acoustic off the wall and strum it lovingly (I have zero musical talent). They’re exceptional guitars. This story, about scientists using DNA barcodes to prevent counterfeiting, and how one band made more than $56,000 selling fake Martins, is a great read. (Mental Floss)

Goblin King origin story comic book? Yes, please. (Nerdist)

This article states that women who have children age faster on a cellular level than those who are childfree. All of my wrinkles call bullshit on this. (IFLScience)

Remember when Monica went a little overboard trying to re-create Phoebe’s grandma’s family cookie recipe only to realize the recipe came from the back of a Toll House chocolate chip bag? That’s pretty much where most “secret family recipes” come from. (Atlas Obscura)

Kate and Wills and Harry and Meghan all together! They just seem like decent people. At this event, Meghan spoke up about current events: “Right now with so many campaigns like MeToo and TimesUp there’s no better time to continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people supporting them.” Indeed. (GFY)

Octothorp has given Scott Cohen’s 1984 publication, Zap: The Rise and Fall of Atari five stars, but maybe not for the reasons one usually gives a book five stars. Despite the thinness of the book and many typos, "the passage of time has rendered it HILARIOUS." One prediction was that no more than 17% of homes would want to have a video gaming system! How many video game systems do you have in your home? (Cannonball Read 10)
