Job seekers around the country have been reporting a strange new trend in the hiring practices of potential employers - the collection of Facebook usernames and passwords. Indeed, in the last few months it has become increasingly common for potential employers to request an applicant's Facebook login credentials so that they may explore their wall/timeline posts, friends lists, photos, and even personal messages.

Having a prospective employer accessing the last few years of your life in digital form seems like a strange and dangerous practice to us. Millions of people around the world use Facebook for private communication as well as social networking, and allowing a potential...

Why Hiring a Legitimate Cleaning Service is Better than Magical (But Extremely Creepy) House-Elves

Having been unusually busy as of late, I've found myself pondering the house-elves of Harry Potter fame. There are very few things to dislike about someone that magically cleans your house and then disappears again. Thankfully, with a properly hired cleaning service, you don't have to worry about the downsides of a house-elf: having a creepy little elf with gigantic googly eyes and scraggly hair running around your house in little more than a ragged loincloth, hiding under couches and cabinets, appearing and disappearing in a flash and potentially giving someone a heart attack. Instead, things are considerably more predictable...

If a Dog is "Man's Best Friend", what does that say about Cats?

Second best? Not even in the running? I don't think it means people really love them any less, but it's true that they aren't exactly best friend material. They're not very dependable, seem to have a hard time reading emotion, and will most certainly never pay you back for all those times you bought dinner.

You know, now that I'm thinking about it.... my dog's never paid me back for all the times I've bought her dinner, either. Best friend? Hmph. Why don't you buy me dinner for a change, huh? How about all those times you've forgotten my birthday? Right. Exactly, "Best Friend." Great job. I'm not even going to get into all the times I've let you slide on rent,...

According to a fairly recent survey, more than 50% of Americans approve of cosmetic plastic surgery. The part I find really interesting is the similarity in numbers between individuals with an income of less than $25k and those above $75k both being over 51% approval. It seems like that in tough economic times, things like cosmetic surgery would drop in importance and approval, but I’m wrong! It does speak wonders for what improving one’s appearance can do for self-confidence. Suppose you’re having a hard time finding employment and you’re convinced it’s because your schnoz is too big? Jowls hanging too low? Neck flap too... flappy? Cut ‘em all down and boost that confidence! BAM! You just...
