A woman named Holly Jones is a hair stylist in Indianapolis, and she went to a bar called Kilroy’s with some friends for New Year’s Eve. But the night didn’t quite go the way she planned. Someone there had to be wheeled out by paramedics, and that really bothered Holly, because it delayed her bill.
Remember “Zombie Cat”? He’s the cat who got hit by a car in Tampa, Florida last year, got buried by his owner, then showed back up at his house ALIVE five days later.

If we REALLY want 2016 to be amazing, eliminating some of these horrible words and phrases from our collective vocabulary would be a great start.
The end of the year brings with it weight gain, near-constant inebriation and the impulse to reflect on the year past, while also offering the opportunity to look ahead towards the New Year … and fantasize about its outcome.
But first, let’s look back. If we had to characterize the state of food in 2015, we would need just word: extreme. The foods that got our attention — from the deep-fried Big Mac to powdered alcohol — had to be extreme enough to be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, wherever. The mass use of social media has irrevocably shaped the look, taste and philosophy of the food we eat. We now ask ourselves things like: Is this dish symmetrical enough, indulgent enough, deep-fried enough to share on Instagram with three praise-hand emoji? Or should we only do two? Or how about a thumbs-up, a heart-eye face and an 100?
Social media isn’t going anywhere, and we hope the following five trends continue a) changing the game and b) blowing up our Insta feeds, the place where trends live and die.
