44,000-Year-Old Cave Painting Could Be the Earliest Known Depiction of Hunting

44,000-Year-Old Cave Painting Could Be the Earliest Known Depiction of Hunting

Archaeologists in Indonesia have stumbled upon an extraordinarily old cave painting which appears to depict human-like figures in pursuit of wild pigs and buffaloes. It’s quite possibly the oldest portrayal of a hunting scene in the archaeological record, but the vague nature of the artwork leaves it open to interpretation.

New research published today in Nature describes the discovery of an...

A Holiday Guide to Sounding Dumber at Cocktail Parties

A Holiday Guide to Sounding Dumber at Cocktail Parties

It’s mandatory fun season, and that means large swaths of the world will soon collectively stand around, sweating drink in hand, smiling and nodding at near-strangers while desperately hoping they both look like they are listening and sound the way a person who is not an idiot sounds. This poor fool even wrote to the New York Times for tips on how to sound smarter at something called a...

How Often Should You Update Your Will?

How Often Should You Update Your Will?

Writing a will is a lot to take on, mentally and emotionally. Not only does it make you confront your own mortality, but it also forces you to make big decisions about who you trust to handle your financial and personal matters after you’re gone. It’s a lot to take on, but it’s one of those to-dos that can afford you huge peace of mind once it’s done.

Once you’ve made a will, however, you...

Keyshia Cole’s ‘Love’ Versus O.T. Genasis’ ‘Never Knew’: Who Did It Better? An Analysis

If you have spent more than five minutes online in the past week, know some gang members, or (oddly) have a Google alert set for “Keyshia Cole” then you have been made privy to the song and video, “Never Knew,” by Long Beach, Calif., rapper and Crip-extraordinaire, O.T. Genasis.

You may remember him from such hits as “Coco”—he’s in love with it—and “Cut It”—which, if your prices are too high,...

Here's what's coming to (and going from) Netflix in January

It’s only a few weeks away, but somehow 2020 still feels like science fiction. Netflix is here to make it a little more tangible and give us something to look forward to after the hell-year that was 2019 with its list of new titles hitting the service in January. Unfortunately, that means we’re also saying goodbye to a handful of titles that are expiring, including Short Term 12 and all four...

Put the creepy back in Christmas with a holiday giveaway from Waxwork Records

Put the creepy back in Christmas with a holiday giveaway from Waxwork Records

Krampusnacht has come and gone, and everyone’s favorite holiday demon has gone back to hell, a rucksack full of screaming children slung over his hairy shoulder. But that doesn’t mean the creepy fun is over. The pagan origins of the midwinter festival mean that there are plenty of horrific Christmas legends to choose from, from Iceland’s Jólakötturinn, the “Yule Cat” who eats naughty children...

“Siri, what’s a boomer?”: The year in Google searches

“Siri, what’s a boomer?”: The year in Google searches

Google has released its annual report on the top searches of the year in many, many categories, and as always, it’s full of gems. If our collective internet sleuthing is any indication, Disney+ won the streaming wars for the year, coming in as the top search of 2019. It’s either that, or the confusion around the rollout was no small thing. Below, some additional highlights.

Flip’d by IHOP wants to be the Chipotle of all-day breakfast

We’ve all been there: living our busy, urban lives, simply trying to have it all, with only a few minutes to squeeze in a quick lunch between our important business meetings. We scroll through the lackluster options on our food delivery app, and think to ourselves: “I want food that’s made efficiently. I want something I can eat on-the-go. And, above all, what I really want is something...

Earth's two most important crops—weed and coffee—are heading to space

Earth's two most important crops—weed and coffee—are heading to space

Only yesterday, I wrote that there were three big pieces of space-related news this week, which was pretty impressive considering it was only Tuesday. Now it’s Wednesday and I get to inform you that weed and coffee are now also heading up to the cosmos in the name of science. As these are two of my favorite things on earth (and soon, my favorite things in space), this officially has become...

Improve Your Decision Making With These Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Techniques

Improve Your Decision Making With These Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Techniques

We’re told to trust our gut when it comes to decision-making—but we also know that our gut can lead us astray.

This is where CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy, can be extremely useful. By becoming better attuned to when our feelings and behaviors are leading us in the right direction (vs. when our gut instinct is full of shit) we can start both making better decisions and feeling better...

For Colored Dads Who Have Considered Kindness When French Fries Wasn’t Enuf

I planned to explain my leave of absence from The Root before it happened. Then, during my wife’s routine doctor’s visit on the last Friday of August, everything went to shit.

We thought we had a week and a half before she would give birth but she was on the phone telling me that the doctor wanted us in the hospital Monday morning. I don’t even know what was said, I just remember feeling...

Marianne Jean-Baptiste on the humor of In Fabric and the hell of holiday shopping

Since her Oscar-nominated breakthrough performance in Mike Leigh’s Secrets And Lies , Marianne Jean-Baptiste has been a reliable presence in film and television, often playing stern keepers of the law in projects like Without A Trace and Broadchurch.

Even though we hardly need network TV to supply us with a regular dose of kids doing stupid shit and people injuring their genitals these days, America’s Funniest Home Videos—or AFV if you’re into early ‘00s branding—still proudly carries out its sacred duties undeterred. For three decades now, the show has functioned as a sort of proto-YouTube channel (and, in recent years, a regular...

It’s a given that the Trump administration is stuffed with assholes with outlandishly oversized egos: Water is wet, am I right? But sometimes, these idiots clash in a battle to determine who’s the biggest, pettiest dick—which brings us to the epic beef between Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid administrator Seema Verma, one that has...
