Way Too Many Americans Are Clueless About Local Stay-at-Home Orders, New Study Finds

Way Too Many Americans Are Clueless About Local Stay-at-Home Orders, New Study Finds

With most of the U.S. population under statewide shelter-in-place mandates to help curb the spread of covid-19, you’d think everyone would have gotten the message to stay at home by now. And you’d be wrong.

A recent study by Wired found that, on average, one-quarter of Americans are still confused about whether they’re affected by an official stay-at-home order, an roughly 10 percent of people...

God bless bored sports commentators and their very good dogs

God bless bored sports commentators and their very good dogs

Look: Nobody was expecting “Out of work, exceptionally bored sports commentators” to become the non-medical heroes of our current quarantine crisis. And yet here we are: Just a couple of weeks after rugby commentator Nick Heath delighted a planet with his quick-fire rundowns of everyday events, we now have Andrew Cotter—a very real, very professional BBC sports person—presenting the...

Melania Really Wants You to Wear a "Cloth Face Covering"

Melania Really Wants You to Wear a "Cloth Face Covering"

Week four of being boarded up in our homes as a result of the covid-19 pandemic and Melania Trump has once again emerged to say some words that are barely helpful at all. You can watch her video announcement below, but I can also summarize her message in one sentence: Cover your face in public but don’t stop social distancing. She says it very slowly, but that’s basically all she says.

And...

This Wild Motorcycle Was Built To Go Really Fast On Ice

This Wild Motorcycle Was Built To Go Really Fast On Ice

Last year—to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Indian Scout—Indian Motorcycle teamed up with Workhorse Speed Shop to build an incredible monster of a motorcycle to tackle high speed events. They called the bike Appaloosa. For 2020 the bike received a few big updates, and was shipped to the frigid Russian winter to run at the Baikal Mile event, on ice.

Appaloosa is based on an Indian Scout...

Billie Eilish Wanted to Work at Jamba Juice

Billie Eilish Wanted to Work at Jamba Juice

Billie Eilish might not know what it means to be called the “voice of her generation,” but it’s obvious that the singer/songwriter’s music, touching on subjects ranging from mental illness to climate change, has managed to capture some of the particular angst and nihilism of Gen Z. Her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, took home five awards at this year’s Grammys—making...

Bogus ‘Jets Sign Kaepernick’ Tweet Shows Antsy Nation Desperate to Lose Its Mind Over Anything

Bogus ‘Jets Sign Kaepernick’ Tweet Shows Antsy Nation Desperate to Lose Its Mind Over Anything

For one brief moment Thursday afternoon it was as if a life preserver had been thrown to every weary, locked-down soul with a strident opinion:

The Jets signed Kaepernick.

A flicker of hope. Colin Kaepernick hadn’t played in four fraught years and hope was dwindling . America, a country now as divided physically as it had been ideologically, could finally argue bitterly again.

And this one was a...

Allow This McLaren M1B's Buttery V8 To Soothe Your Soul

Allow This McLaren M1B's Buttery V8 To Soothe Your Soul

Has there ever been a cooler series than Group 7 in the mid-to-late 1960s? Back then the way to build a fast car was to shove a big American V8 in a lightweight and nimble European chassis and jam the loud pedal as often as possible. The cars were incredible, but were matched on talent from the roster of amazing drivers who ran in that series. Mark Donohue, John Surtees, Phil Hill, Jim Hall,...

Woman Arrested for Licking $1,800 in Groceries

Woman Arrested for Licking $1,800 in Groceries

Life in a pandemic is something none of us have any experience in handling. It’s been rough; can’t even front. It’s no excuse, though, for the level of sheer wilding we’ve seen from certain parts of the population.

CNN reports that 53-year-old Jennifer Walker went to a South Lake Tahoe Safeway, licked multiple pieces of jewelry from the store and put them on her hands before filling her...

Force Awakens editor Mary Jo Markey still sounds pretty peeved about The Last Jedi

Disney’s ever-baffling decision to write one of the most hotly anticipated movie trilogies of the last decade like a series of laser sword-heavy Mad Libs continues to pull in strong dividends from the “People unhappy on the internet” sector this week, as IndieWire reports that one of the editors on Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still pretty peeved about Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi ....

Zion Williamson Shouldn't Wait To Start Demanding More Talent Around Him

There are few people in sports that can combine generational athleticism and advanced intelligence.

Those rare personalities can make the sports world bend to their whim, especially in the NBA.

Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and LeBron James are among a select few in the history of the NBA that could dictate organizational moves, because leadership in these organizations had to...

If Handshakes & High 5s Die, What Will Players Do? We Have A Few Ideas

Eventually, the sports world will get back to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic, right along with the rest of the world.

What constitutes “normal,” though? It may be different than what we determined before—and in many ways, it should be.

But what does this mean for sports?

If Dr. Anthony Fauci has his way, one of the changes in sports would impact one of hockey’s favorite traditions:...

Someone Really Should Check on Madonna

Someone Really Should Check on Madonna

Madonna is nothing if not a diva, and a diva does not do anything halfway. (Jezebel has at least two past  blogs with headlines that contain the words “Madonna” and “stop” which tells an entire story all by itself.) Including, naturally, quarantine. Over the past month, the singer has been recording and sharing quarantine video diary installments using IGTV, and they are.... odd. All of the...

IndyCar Should Have Chosen The Deltawing

IndyCar Should Have Chosen The Deltawing

A decade ago IndyCar had a choice to make. It had issued a challenge to chassis manufacturers to design a replacement for the aging Dallara IR-05 that had been running largely unchanged since 2003. Traditional open wheel designs came in from Dallara, Swift, and Lola, plus a fourth conceptually radical design from Ben Bowlby dubbed the Deltawing. IndyCar made the wrong choice.
