We got you an early 4th of July present, and it’s all the red white and blue badassery we could fit in one article.

Photo by @gordonwiltsie With warmest memories of the late, mountaineering giant, #AlexLowe, I want to thank again the thousands of people who contributed so generously to support the #Sherpa people he so loved. For more than ten years the Alex Lowe Charitable Fund has been working closely with the Sherpa community, teaching technical mountaineering, aiding families in need, and building a vocational training and cultural center. Every dollar will be wisely spent and I know that Alex would have been so honored. For more information, contact alexlowe.org. (This picture of Alex was taken on an @natgeo expedition I shared with him to #BaffinIsland, north of the #Arctic Circle in #Canada and appeared in the January 1999 edition.) #Nepal #Himalaya #expeditions #adventure

CHELSEA<p>The story revolves around 5 hopeless shut-in 20-30 year-old otaku girls. Without giving away any part of plot, I at first assumed this was going to be a “Cinderella” story where a cool fashionable person finds these destitute social outcasts and takes off their glasses gives ‘em makeovers and then suddenly everyone is super hot. But that’s not it at all (the characters are all wearing the same outfits in chapter 50 as they were in chapter 1), it’s about girls taking control of their …

STOP LYING TO US, CULTURE

STOP LYING TO US, CULTURE<p>In my limited sexing, I’ve enjoyed a few of the different fruits the Humptree has to offer, but there’s a lot out there, and some of it seems like it was made up just so someone could say they did it, with little consideration for the practical and, dare I say, sensual benefits of such a maneuver. Let’s take some time to go over some of the sexual repertoire that just doesn’t make a hell of a lot of sense, and see if we can’t figure out why.
