Should You Work For Free?

Is it always a bad idea to work for free?

Usually, the answer is no, but occasionally it could be yes. Jessica Hische’s handy flowchart should help you decide. It’s divided into four main types of jobs, and from there you snake around answering various pertinent questions—and hopefully reaching a satisfactory conclusion to your particular situation.

Starbucks Giveaway Offering Drinks For Life

Best holiday gift ever? Yes.

star2

Starbucks is offering drinks for life to 10 customers.

Technically, the offer is not “for life” but for a free drink or food item every day for 30 years.

Customers become eligible for the giveaway by using a Starbucks Card or by paying through a mobile device.

The contest is a way for the company to promote its new order and pay ahead mobile program, which is scheduled to launch by the end of next year. Starbucks is offering the program early — before the end of this year — in Portland.

“This is the first time we ever offered customers something of this magnitude,” said Sharon Rothstein, Starbucks executive vice president, in a statement regarding the Starbucks for Life offer.

And what would this prize add up to? If you buy one coffee every day from Starbucks, that comes to $22,995.00 over 30 years! *gasp*

The offer starts Dec. 2 and runs until Christmas.

Dropping Bricks Into California Toilets

If you’re going to drop an upper-decker, you might as well help fight a drought in the process.lol1lol2

“Drop A Brick” is a nonprofit Indiegogo project created by a partnership of several California businesses, including San Francisco agency BarrettSF, that encourages you to buy an eco-friendly rubber brick filled with hydro-gel that expands 200 times its size when water is added. Putting the brick in the top tank will displace half a gallon of water, saving about 50 gallons a week for a family of four.

If every Californian dropped a brick, the initiative says, it would save 67 million gallons of water a day.

The crowdfunding video is basically one big poop joke, but it’s surprisingly amusing and has been getting quite a bit of passaround. Still, organizers say they’d like to see more bricks being ordered to help alleviate California’s crippling drought as soon as possible.

So check out the video and explainer photos below, then go see about dropping a fat one in the tank. No need for a courtesy flush.

Lazy Halloween Costume Ideas

So you want to impress your friends at the Halloween party they’re hosting and you don’t want make it look like you tried too hard with your costume, because that’s just un-suave.

You also don’t feel like breaking your wallet on some pre-packaged shit(you want to spend money on the good stuff that will last you many Halloweens after), and you’re too lazy for a DIY costume.

Most importantly, you don’t want to look stupid being the only idiot in the room half-assing a costume.

Don’t worry, I gotchuuuu.


Be a unicorn. You can get the complete outfit from Claires for just under $50.

Unicorn hat $18.
lolhat

Any statement top($19-$23).

shirt1 shirt2 shirt3 shirt4

Paired with a rainbow tutu(or blue jeans if you’re a guy, $10-$16)
tutu1tututu
For extra flair, you can add complimentary unicorn leg warmers($8.50)with matching unicorn earrings($2-$6), and you’re gold!

uniuniears

You now have a reusable unicorn Halloween costume where each item can also be worn separately throughout the year! Win win.


If unicorns and rainbows aren’t your thing, you can go as Cup Noodles($60)! This costume will surely cause excessive drooling and will either make you the most hated or most loved person in the room.

If you’re mega lazy(like me)and wants to be super casual, cute, and simple, you can just spice up your wardrobe with some spooky accessories.

Make your eyes pop with these awesome $1.50 eyelashes from Daiso!

Or add some glow-in-the-dark earrings($6-$10 again from Claire’s)

Throw on a really unique bloody looking bracelet($6-$8.50)

Or add a nice gothic style choker with matching earrings!

And complete the look with some cute headbands($8-$18)!

Now if that won’t do it for you, then you can always default to being a nerd.

Glasses($2-$6)
glasses bow
A t-shirt with condescending nerd humor($19.00)paired with some funky suspenders($6-$8, bow tie optional)
t-1 t-2

suslolol

Complete the look with a bad haircut, a loud opinion about your favorite show’s fandom, a black tutu($12-$14)or some skinny jeans and voila, instant nerd! Time to go out and terrorize everyone with your intelligence.

Geek eye glasses (16)


So, yea, that was actually my list of future lazy Halloween outfits.

Bring lots of candy and don’t show up to the party too early, you know the drill. Oh, and let me know what you’re dressing up as, because it would be embarrassing as hell if we both showed up as nerds.

*prices may vary according to where you decide to shop(duh)

Ikea’s New No-Tools furniture building

Ikea has made their furniture lighter, more ergonomic, easier to build with their new line, REGISSÖR, coming out soon to an Ikea near you!

The video demonstrates how you can build their furniture with your bare hands, and it requires no  screws or metal pieces.

 

Ikea will eventually include other pieces such as cabinets, bookshelves and coffee tables if REGISSÖR proves to be popular amongst customers.


If you’re a big fan of Ikea’s furniture, you want to check out Ikeafans website! People(Ikea fans obviously)band together to create ingenious and creative, customization of the furniture for their homes and children! Examples:

A child’s raincoat made from an Ikea shopping bag

A storage bed

And a space conscious computer desk.

I’m pretty amazed.
