These ‘Fur’ Coats Are Actually Made Using Men’s Chest Hair. Yuck.
I don’t care much for people who wear fur because I think there are many different and much more humane ways to keep warm when the weather’s being particularly unforgiving.

You see free Wi-Fi stations all over the place these days, but when was the last time you saw a free ‘No Wi-Fi’ zone? Probably never, if you haven’t been down to Amsterdam lately.
