Ted Cruz tweets about the Zodiac killer and the internet doesn't know what to do about it.

As you might well know, Ted Cruz has long since been at the end of a running joke about him being the Zodiac Killer. Dark-humored, for sure; hilarious, most definitely. And now, as fate would have it, a year later Ted Cruz bestowed us all with the unexpected gift of acknowledging the absurdity on Twitter. Granted, this might be pawned off as some sort of botched social media move by a Cruz intern, like when he went and 'liked' the NSFW tweet (see here); but either way, we'll take it.

Twitter Tears Mia Khalifa Apart After She Makes Untimely Joke About Gordon Hayward's Ankle Break

Last night Gordon Hayward tragically broke his ankle after jumping for a ball in the Boston Celtics home opener. Players were clearly rattled even as the game continued. (Video at the bottom of the list)

The break will be utterly devastating for both Hayward and his team this season, we hope he makes a full recovery. 

Mia Khalifa, the porn star who recently made headlines for getting kicked out of a baseball game, took to twitter shortly afterwards to crack a joke about how Hayward was a 'sacrificial lamb'. This left Celtics players, family, and fans in a social media frenzy, including Al Horford's sister who was quick to put Mia in her place.

10 times people on the internet offered up surprisingly helpful pieces of dating advice.

The internet's generally a pandora's box, filled to the brim with all manners of hopelessly insensitive depravity when it comes to the 'dating realm'. I mean, just yesterday we ran a piece (see here) on yet another string of hilariously ridiculous Tinder conversations/pickup lines. Yet, here we are, with something that somehow manages to boost the otherwise dwindling faith in humanity: actual, legitimate, dating advice! Who'd have seen this coming?

Thirsty guys harass a mom modeling clothes so much that Ebay decides to intervene.

Katherine Macpherson, 42, who previously modeled pictures of dresses on Ebay, has since discontinued her job due to relentlessly thirsty, and grossly insensitive pursuits on the part of Ebay's horny internet trolls. Macpherson says she'll receive up to 20 dirty messages a day; and we're talking dirty and explicit enough that they weren't appropriate for print. 

"One person who sent me several unanswered messages and then became more insistent before sending me a picture of his penis was on my blocked bidder list and should not have been able to contact me but somehow still managed it.

"I reported him and was informed by eBay that if they received any more complaints from other users they may consider suspending his account. Via: The Sun

We're glad to hear that Ebay stepped up to support the woman just trying to do her job, and haven't heard yet on whether the issue's been resolved.

"If you want to change the future, start living as if you're already there." -- Lynn Conway, 2013-07-14

[Though I think taking it too far and living as if "I don't have to work toward this because it's already done," might be counterproductive. Still work to make the change you want catch up to you.]

Ivanka Trump's getting roasted by Twitter trolls after claiming she went through a punk phase.

Ivanka Trump went and awakened the fiery wrath of (real) punks everywhere when she claimed in her mom's memoir, Raising Trump, that she went through a hardcore phase in the '90s. Can't make this sh*t up, guys:

During my punk phase in the nineties, I was really into Nirvana. My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts. One day after school, I dyed my hair blue. Mom wasn't a fan of this decision. She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice'n Easy. That night, she forced me to dye my hair back to blond. The color she picked out was actually three shades lighter than my natural color… and I have never looked back! ---- Google Books

Yeah...so she's as hardcore as it gets dudes...she had blue in her hair AND she wept tears of profound sorrow over Kurt Cobain's death. Let's just say the punks of Twitter had something to say about all that:
