Looks like we all picked the right day to start sniffing glue.
“Kanye West Is A NoFap Hero”
You read that correctly: Yeezy, as a result of his new religious phase and recently released anti-porn album, Jesus Is King, is a NoFap guy. At least, that’s the connection being made by members of NoFap, the grassroots internet movement for those who abstain from masturbating. To these young men, the message is clear: Stop jerking off and you too could become “a worldwide celebrity, musician and business mogul with a net worth of over $240 million (according to Forbes).” But is Kanye’s recent turn to chastity and Christianity endearing him with more sinister groups as well?

Hot for Teacher
Here’s something the founders of Tinder, Grindr and the like probably didn’t anticipate: What happens when teachers see their students on dating apps.

And the Oscar Goes to… Reese’s Pieces
With Halloween coming up *checks calendar* tomorrow, Tim Grierson salutes cinema’s greatest sweets, candies and yes, (John) Candy.

Everybody knows, you can’t have a zombie potluck without a bit of liver.
