  1. Find The Best Clothing Brands For Your Body Type [Infographic]
    Many clothing brands seem to be designed with specific body types in mind. For a more flattering look, it’s best to wear brands that fit you best. This infographic highlights popular brands to fit your body type.
  2. The Creepiest Things You Can Do On Facebook
    Sometimes in this world, you want to make someone as wildly uncomfortable as humanly possible. That’s why Facebook’s here.
  3. Is It Legal To Write A Negative Online Review About A Business?
    Online review forums like TripAdvisor and Yelp are providing a platform for disgruntled customers to rage about businesses that have slighted them. For some, it’s a form of catharsis while others genuinely want to warn people against working with dodgy companies. But in recent years online reviews have come under scrutiny around the world. Businesses at the receiving end of the negative comments are concerned about how the bad reviews could impact their bottom line and some have taken legal action against their keyboard-wielding detractors.
  4. Top Ten Careers That Attract Psychopaths
    If you’ve been in the workplace for any extended period of time, chances are you’ve encountered a psychopath at some point in your career. Contrary to popular belief, not all psychopaths are serial killers or axe murderers. In fact, only a small majority of psychopaths are actually violent at all. Instead, you’ll find that psychopaths will almost always be superficially charming, yet can prove to be self-serving and callous on closer inspection. Thanks to the specific set of traits that defines psychopathy, they’re far more likely to be drawn to certain careers than to others.
  5. Asm.js Will Soon Be Enabled By Default In Microsoft EdgeMicrosoft may have lagged behind when it came to making Internet Explorer a competitive option compared to Chrome and Firefox, but with Edge it’s catching up — fast. The latest improvement is the implementation of asm.js into Edge’s Javascript engine, which came in a few months ago as an optional extra, but will soon be switched on by default.
  6. Sick Of Your Partner's Crap? The Breakup Shop Will Dump Them On Your Behalf For $10
    The Breakup Shop is an online service that takes “ghosting” to a whole new level. For a fixed fee, its staff members will perform breakups through texts, emails, letters or phone calls on your behalf. In the words of the company: “Let us handle the messy work of the breakup so you can spend more time swiping right.” Classy.
  7. Ask LH: What's The Point Of Incognito Mode And Other 'Secret' Browsers?
    Dear Lifehacker, I’ve noticed that most internet browsers have a “secret” or “incognito” mode in their options. I was just wondering what the benefits of using this mode are? Does it hide my browsing history from everyone, or just people who use my computer? Thanks, Not Asking For Porn
  8. Revealed: The Online Porn Aussies Crave Most
    Australia loves its porn. Every year, the land Down Under contributes millions of hits to Pornhub. Despite having a smaller population, Australian IP addresses make us the seventh most active country on the site in 2014. To try and figure out how we like it Down Under, Pornhub's data scientists have plowed into the numbers to figure out exactly what Australia looks for when we want our porn. (Some phrases NSFW.)
  9. Should Australian Pub And Restaurant Workers Be Tipped?
    Australia is one of the few Western nations where tipping isn’t expected — but this could soon be set to change if the results of a new national survey can be believed. According to bar tab app Clipp, nearly 60 per cent of Australians regularly tip, despite often making less money per hour than their servers. What do you make of all this? Cast your vote in our poll!
  10. 5 Horrible Things To Do While Borrowing Your Friend's Phone
    We all know the moment. Your friend’s phone is sitting, unprotected, unguarded, just waiting to be used for a little mischief. You know you should take this opportunity to do something with it, but inspiration rarely hits until it’s too late. Of course you could snoop through their texts and private Facebook messages, but that’s a little too sociopathic even for Evil Week. Instead, here is some of the best mayhem you can cause with just a few minutes on someone’s phone, with far less chance of ruining your friendship.
