Generally speaking, knowledge is power. Why not learn as much as possible to become a more interesting, useful, and education person? You never know when certain information will come in handy.
This clichéd wisdom, however, has its limits. Perhaps there are some areas we really don’t need to explore. There are things that can’t be unlearned once we’ve seen and absorbed them… And that knowledge may haunt us forever.
Thanks to the Internet, we now know way too much about owls.
It all began when entertainment writer and Twitter phenom Dana Schwartz noticed a particularly plump bird resting on boyfriend’s air conditioner in New York City.
But the vigilant people of Twitter would not tolerate such bird body shaming without all the facts.
All birds are beautiful, after all.
That’s when Schwartz came to her senses. “I realized I had no idea what owls looked like without feathers,” Schwartz told Distractify.
So, she did some research: “The answer is…nightmares” she said.
Graciously, she decided to share her important findings with the public.
These findings left everyone rattled. So Twitter tried to make sense of it all.
Who knew that cute chubby, owls were actually mutant dinosaurs of our nightmares?
Schwartz, herself, is not deterred. “I think they’re even cuter [now],” she says.
Tragically, this information no one asked for spawned more photos of creepy, naked animals to haunt our nightmares.
Cute animals will never be the same. You’re welcome.
While we can’t promise any more frightening factoids about owls, we can suggest you absorb more of Schwartz’s wisdom in her book And We’re Off, available for preorder on Amazon.

Unfortunately, we often spend our lives walking on eggshells — we’re bound by social norms that keep us from being our truest selves. Far too often, we make decisions based on fear of judgment… And by that I mean I’m not my authentic self because I drink wine out of a glass in front of other people while chugging straight from the bottle on my own. Ugh, society.
Well, social norms always have loopholes. Now there’s a way to drink concerning amounts of wine under the guise of grown-up etiquette.
Guzzle Buddy is here to make your end of the day drink (or middle of the day pick-me-up, no judgment) a lot more socially acceptable.
Thanks to this brilliant invention, you can keep guzzling from the bottle while still drinking from a glass! Just like those people without drinking problems do.
And it looks just like a regular wine glass (ahem, extra large wine glass), except there’s a spout instead of a stem at the base. Just stick the spout into the neck of the bottle and chug away!
Sure, it’s not the best for sharing, but we all know that wine bottles are individual servings.
It’s all yours for $ 22 and available on Amazon. It would be the perfect holiday gift if we could actually wait until December.
No more judgment, same amount of wine. Any questions?
Money can buy happiness, people.

I had to stop myself from eating pasta a long time ago. It’s a sad story, actually. Well, no, like, nobody dies in this story or anything, but, it’s still sad. My father was basically a sous chef in Italy where he lived for 9 years – and he learned how to cook amazing, and I mean amazing Italian food. So that meant I grew up in a household that ate all homemade Italian dishes on a regular basis.
Which meant whenever my friends wanted to go out to eat, I was a total Italian food snob. It also meant loads and loads of delicious spaghetti when I was at home with a different, tasty sauce my father would make from scratch each time.
Sadly, I had to stop eating pasta years ago because I have zero self-control, seriously, I can’t even remember the last time I had pasta, must’ve been when I was 18 or so.
So the greater part of my life is still dominated by pasta goodness, but even so, I still had no idea what the hell this hole in a spaghetti spoon is for.
I always thought it was too much sure water didn’t collect on the bottom of your ladle, because no one wants water mixing with their sauce. Ew.
But it turns out that the little hole in the middle of that spoon is a measuring tool for one serving of spaghetti.
Did you know, that the hole in your spaghetti spoon holds the recommended portion for one serving size of spaghetti.
Usually I would just toss a bunch in a pot and then delude myself into thinking I won’t eat it all.
It’s a great way to help keep your portions under control, and it’s good to know that utensils aren’t outfitted with dumb styling cues for no darn reason.
Now excuse me while I reminisce on the good old days when I used to eat pasta. But never again, you don’t get abs like Zac Efron eating pasta, homeys.
