TIL I learned that the only Brown Panda in the world was abandoned by his mother at two months old, and was bullied by other pandas. Now has his own care-taker in Foping Panda Valley in China.

Jeez, even pandas have no chill.

Actually, there are quite possibly somewhere between 200 and 300 brown pandas alive. They are part of a special subspecies - the Qinling panda. I don't know why Reddit and various tabloids keep referencing this "only brown panda in the world" story, especially because people have known they've existed since 1985. Evidently, they're not all brown, but there's a higher chance a Qinling would be brown than a regular panda.

he reminds me of a kid who was bullied. it shows in his eyes somehow. he compensates with food.

Jealous of their shiny version.

TIL the first "Prime Day" back in 2015 was called a “digital garage sale” and "Internet’s Worst Clearance Rack." One of the best deals featured was a $1K, 55-gallon bottle of lube.

I need a 55 gallon drum of lube and an inflatable kiddie pool for reasons.

Dude, don't use lube and kiddie in the same sentence. You're probably on a list now. Fuck, now I am too.

Yeah everyone’s complaints after that first one have been exactly the same every single year later.

... which has some of the funniest reviews of any amazon product.

It's right up there with the Hutzler 571 banana slicer, the Haribo sugar free gummy bears 5-lb bag, and of course the legendary three-wolf moon tshirt.

Spent 4 long, brutal days on a jury for a divorce hearing (allocation of money and custody). Day 2 consisted of 3 hours looking at facebook pictures of the child with the mother and facebook pictures with the father, both lawyers arguing who she looked happier with. Disgusting.

That sounds absolutely soul-sucking.

It sucked so much. Both parents were pretty deplorable. But the lawyer's....holy shit. Divorce lawyers are something else entirely. Both were so catty towards each other.

I know a couple divorce attorneys. I am sure there are plenty who are well balanced human beings, but the fuckers I know absolutely hate men/women. I know two male divorce attorneys who go on about how all wives are lazy adulterers who drain their husbands of money while the woman I know talk about how all men are abusive monsters. Oddly enough they are all married.

Ted Kennedy tried this move one time to lesser success.

Well that went 0 to 100 Chappaquidquick

Edit: thanks for the gold!

Tbh I'd do the exact same thing.

ESPECIALLY as the fucking President. That should be fun for some Secret Service guys.

Johnson sounds like the nice, goofy uncle who turns out is not really that nice or goofy but seriously troubled.
