What Does the Shape and Color of My Poop Mean?

Dear Lifehacker,
Like most people, I've pooped a lot in my lifetime. Usually things follow a fairly predictable pattern, but now and then I've seen unusual colors and shapes. I don't feel bad or have any discomfort, but I'm concerned these changes might mean something. How can I figure out when I should be concerned… » 3/04/14 5:48pm 3/04/14 5:48pm

Levels of Intimacy: When to Burp, Fart & Poop in Front of Your Partner

Recently, we learned via study something we all suspected was true on some level: that the "average woman" waits a good four weeks before allowing a man she fancies to gaze upon her bare, makeup-free face for fear of scarring him with the knowledge that human eyes don't come rimmed in kohl at birth.

Seriously, Poop Pills Just Might Save Your Life (With Poop!)

Raw Sewage Flooded The Locker Rooms In Oakland Yesterday

It has not been a great few years for hygiene at the stadia of the American League West. Earlier this year, a Houston Astros vendor pooped next to his snowcones. Before that, rats scurried all over Angel Stadium. (And, oh god, let us not forget the bees. So many bees.) And now a scourge has hit poor, unloved O.co… » 6/17/13 12:06pm 6/17/13 12:06pm

Someone Threw A Sock Full Of Shit At A Woman In Chicago

The headline basically sums it up, but here's the disgusting rundown: A woman riding on a local transit train in Chicago was just minding her own business when a man, unprovoked, hurled a sock full of human feces at her and ran away.

Jason Babin Was Cleared For An MRI Because He Finally Took A Shit

How Do You Get The Contest Out Of Your System? Trying To Answer The…

The Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest is a lot of things—patriotic, promotional, repellant—but above all, the contest is a study in misdirection. Like so many of Coney Island's storied card sharks and freak shows, the contest succeeds by distracting its audience, plying them with… » 7/05/12 11:50am 7/05/12 11:50am
