  • With Halloween just around the corner, a lot of you have already at least glanced at costume ideas. And if you're a fan of the Disney movie "Frozen" and also a grownup who likes dressing in sexy Halloween costumes, look no further. Here are this season's sexy "Frozen"-inspired Halloween costumes. Of course, they are not made by Disney — hence the "inspired" part — but instead are by costume-maker Yandy.

    There's the Ice Girl costume, the Norwegian Maiden costume, the Blue Snow Maiden, and even a costume called the Funny Snowman. We think the only thing funny about this one is that it is most likely replicating this character, Olaf the snowman:

    If you don't have long, beautiful blond hair like Elsa, don't worry — Yandy has you covered for that too with this wig:


    The good news is that you won't have to try to squeeze into a child's-size "Frozen" costume. This is not the first time an innocent Disney classic has inspired sexy Halloween costumes, such as a sexy evil queen and even a sexy

  • A new video is giving a rare glimpse of the terrifying life inside Raqqa, Syria. The area was overtaken nearly 18 months ago by the Islamic State militant group (also known as ISIL and ISIS). The video originally aired this week on the French TV channel France 2. The video portrays a society of forced prayers, a ban on music and entertainment, and mandatory niqabs (restrictive full coverings) for women. A brave Syrian female student shot the undercover video, which shows men and women carrying weapons in the busy streets, even near children.
    At one point in the video, a man pulls up to the camerawoman in a car and chastises her about her too-transparent veil. He tells her, "God loves covered women."
    The video was shot in February and April of this year. Its purpose was to expose the conditions under which Syrian women now live, and also to tell the story of 150 French women who have moved to the area to marry jihadists or join their extremist husbands fighting there, to care for

  • Someone is giving extra thanks to the bike gods today! In an incredibly close call with death, a Russian cyclist found himself caught in the middle of a collision between a delivery truck and a car, but luckily he managed to walk away unharmed.

    The incident occurred about 40 minutes south of Moscow's city center on Sept. 19. It was recorded on the city's CCTV cameras, which were installed for the "Safe City" surveillance project.

    In the video, a man is riding his bike through a crosswalk when suddenly a delivery truck collides with a red car that was driving parallel with the biker. It appears that the delivery truck ignored the right of way and darted across the intersection, smashing into the red car. Debris from both vehicles flies, and the delivery truck tips, balances briefly on two wheels, and then quickly rolls over. Miraculously, the cyclist is not hit by the red car, which spins out of control, but he is knocked off his bike by the brush of the truck's front bumper as it is

  • Cats and the Internet go together like peanut butter and jelly, and Meow Mix is banking on that concept. The brand's advertising team came up with a new way to appeal to the less-talked-about cat owners — cat guys. In a new YouTube video titled "Country Cat," J.R. Moore (aka country music singer Justin Moore) sings about what he loves to do when he gets home from a long day of hard work. Spoiler alert: It's playing with his cat. The 2-minute video will have you tapping your foot, especially to this line: "Listen to that purrin' the records are turnin'…"

    This is the second Meow Mix music video in its "It's Meow Time" campaign, which features remixed versions of its famous jingle. The first was a trippy, electronic dance music version released in August. Whether you love or hate the two new videos, the company has come a long way since its original 1970s jingle.

    Good luck getting this country tune out of your head. If you're feeling inspired, you should upload your own version at

  • Apple's announcement on Sept. 9 of the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus was big. Really big. Huge even. You get the point. It seems like all anyone can talk about are the phone sizes, and that includes best friends Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, who appear in two new Apple commercials that were released on YouTube Monday night. In the first video, titled "Huge," the pair poke fun at the way everyone is obsessed with the size of the smartphones.

    If you can stop talking about the phones' sizes for a minute, you can watch the next Timberlake and Fallon collaboration, an ad titled "Cameras." This one is about the awesomeness of the phones' cameras, which feature slow motion and a new time-lapse setting.

    Both spots only feature Fallon and Timberlake's voices and hands, but still left us smiling.  We didn't expect anything less from the funny duo, who have famously appeared in several sketches together, like their "Hashtags" bit on Fallon's "Tonight Show" and the
