7 Things You Can Make Out Of Yourself When You Die

It’s time to put your affairs in order. And yet — you’re still not ready to let go. Totally understandable! And, fortunately for you, you don’t have to. It’s all thanks to the alarming number of services just waiting to turn your dearly departed remains into the latest accessory, utensil or pastime. May you rest in peace — on your loved ones’ desks forever.


5 Ways To Hide From Common Surveillance Tech

We may not be in a total surveillance state yet, but thanks to the FBI’s insane new facial recognition system, a 1984-esque reality doesn’t seem quite so far away.
