7 True Stories of Animals Rescuing People from Certain Death, from Cracked. Incredible.

*

Have you guys heard about Girl Meets World yet? From the sound of it, it's gonna be pretty amazing… We're excited!

*

And speaking of the show, The Frisky lists 10 other '90s sitcom spinoffs they'd like to see. I would DVR the absolute crap out of "Not-So-Full House"… but only if they could get MK&A to reprise their role as Michelle.

*

To celebrate Election Day, The Cut has 92 years of women voting, in pictures. <3 <3

*

See also: A Record 20 Women to Occupy Senate Seats. Here's to even more next time!

Speaking of the election, Upworthy has a great breakdown of the major propositions & their results.

*

Mentalfloss asks: Do Americans Actually Move to Canada After Elections? I actually know someone who did this!

This article is sort of election-related but mostly just mind-bending. It's like Michael Crichton wrote the next Mission Impossible... but it could be real!

*

And the election may be over, but we can still debate which wife won the style battle. Glad we're getting back to the important issues. ;)

*

Along those same lines, Shine lists history's most fashionable first ladies.

*

Umm.. this guy gets the award for best dad ever. So cool.

*

As you guys probably know, the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy are far from being "back to normal". So if you have a minute, Glamour has a great list of ways to help the victims and make things right again.

*

Very cool: Amazon's Wedding Registry is Helping Sandy Victims!

*

6 Unspoken Rules of Transportation That Everybody Breaks, from Cracked. I'm definitely guilty of 5 and 2.

*

Lifehacker shows you how to have a more productive day… by removing 20% of your to-do list.

*

Fashioning a Face: Beauty, Feminism, and the Rise of "Effortless Chic", from Chictopia, is incredibly insightful and really made us think. "When alienation masquerades as beauty, it disintegrates the makeup into nothing more than a symbol of anti-feminism pretending to be femininity. "

*

Lovers of all things sparkly, you will adore this quadruple sparkle bracelet DIY from Stripes + Sequins!

*

With the holiday season coming up, it's time to master the red lip. (Sidenote: Lisa Eldridge's voice is so soothing!)

*

Ummm, wow: Texts I Sent to My Girlfriend During an R. Kelly concert. I don't even know what to make of this, but I 100% believe these are true.

*

Pumpkin and macadamia whoopie pies? Must. Make. These.

*

Haha, this is cute: Jimmy Fallon, Christina Aguilera, and The Roots play "With Your Body"... using office supplies instead of instruments.

*

11 Famous Acresses' Adorably Awkward Auditions, from Glamour. They're so right about Blake not having the capacity to be awkward, though…

*

With Skyfall coming out soon, io9 has a list of the worst fashion disasters from James Bond movies. I like this list, but I'd swap "worst" for "most incredible".

*

Los Angeles Artist Transforms Billboards Into Floating Gardens. We love this idea and hope it catches on elsewhere!

*

How does your favorite TV show measure up in terms of diversity? Upworthy has a great report on the subject, and the results are really interesting.

On a much, much lighter note, if you think your life is awkward, this list will make you feel better.
