Five reasons the Internet is incredibly on-point right now

Like Tinder, I’ll never take a site like this seriously, which can only mean it’s perfect. It’s only a matter of time before the U.S. gets its hands on this and my friends find a way to either end my social life or get me married. In which case, my profile would look much more like my actual self and much less like my OKCupid façade. I imagine a majority of my friends would describe me as “a 22-year-old cluster-fuck of sensitivity with terrible timing, luck and very little grace.” I wouldn’t like my picture and my hobbies would likely include “ordering off of GrubHub,” “sitting” and “spilling my beer.”

2. It graced us with this:

Love or loathe her, Miley is a household name right now; one of those that make you vaguely itchy when you say it because the NSA is probably keeping track and you don’t want to admit that you actually think Miley is kind of cool (I say this very loosely and I am very itchy).

Cinematography is insane – and what’s crazy about this promo is that it’s so well done that it made me fucking love her and, at the minute mark, I think I even respect her. I may not want to straddle a crane but I wouldn’t mind shooting a hot-dog gun.

5. This picture of Mitt Romney making a baby cry back in 2012 made a comeback this week and is archived for eternity at #5 on Huffington Post’s 35 Hilariously Awkward Politician-Children Encounters:

  1. I stopped using tinder a few weeks ago… too many douches for my liking lol. My coworker showed me cliqie.com and I’m a big fan of that over the others in terms of actually meeting people vs. just entertainment. It has a different approach that feels less sketchy cause you and your friends essentially act as “wingmen”. I like that it helps you find things to do too. Skout’s okay too, but still has it’s fair share of creepers
