The second (and last) total lunar eclipse of 2014 will be happening early Wednesday morning, just before sunrise here in the Eastern Time Zone. During the eclipse, the moon will appear a coppery red color, which is referred to as a "blood moon".

Donald Trump Tricked into Retweeting Pic of Serial Killers, Inspires Trend Asking Him to Retweet Famous Villains

Why is it so easy to hate Donald Trump? Well, there's the hair. The face. The arrogance. He seems to have an opinion everything (most recently making comments about the Ebola Virus). Ok, so there are a lot of reasons. Adding to that list: He's an internet troll and is always calling people "losers" and trying to get into fights on Twitter. Which is funny, because The Donald kind of sucks at Twitter. In his most recent screw-up, he was fooled into retweeting a photo of infamous serial killers.

New Study Finds That Like, I Mean, Saying ‘Like’ All The Time Isn’t All That, Like, Bad

I had a high school English teacher who counted "ums" "ahs" "likes" "I means" and "you knows" during speeches. Every time we uttered one of these "filler" words, we got points deducted. How, like, unfair! My teacher, along with many others, thought that using these filler words turned off listeners and made speakers sound unprepared, dumb, or anxious (or all of the above).
