Being rich has perks that we poor peasants could only dream of. While some rich people are lowkey about their wealth, others flaunt it until it's blatantly obvious. A Redditor started a thread about things that make it ridiculously obvious that someone is a rich jerk, and the responses range from funny to flat-out obnoxious. Until we become rich pricks ourselves, we'll scroll down and laugh at these till our insides hurt. Anything these Redditors missed? Let us know in the comments.
One of the most tragic yet hopeful stories we have seen this year so far - 5 itty bitty adorable cheetah cubs have tragically lost their momma and were orphaned. Thankfully, after being searched for and rescued by some incredible people, the Kevin Richardson Foundation and Dinokeng Game Reserve has stepped in to give them the second chance that they deserve. They are miracle babies, and they are lucky in that they may yet return to the wild.
They need help of course. The bond between cheetahs and their mommas is a crucial one, and without her, they will need a lot of care. You can be one of the people to help them by donating. We hope to see much more of these tiny but fierce felines as they grow up into the hunters they were always meant to be.

Who knows, but there's just something about them that says "us."

Even though we still feel like kids on the inside, we're very much adults on the outside. We might be known as the coolest kids on the block among our friends, but the younger generation sees us as ancient and irrelevant. That's your tough-to-swallow pill of the day. Sorry to break it to you. A Redditor started a thread about the very moment people realized they were getting old. At least they're coming to terms with the harsh truth, right? Let us know if you relate to any of the moments below.
Some buildings are horrible to look at and other building decisions are just weird, bad and dumb. And then there's the kind of architecture that can actually destroy things and hurt people. Tumblr gets into the interesting work of Rafael Vinoly. For another story on artists of chaos, here's the story of the world's most hated elitist artist Anish Kapoor and his bean.
It's that time of year again when corporations that hoard the world's wealth get to show the little guy how woke they are with temporary rainbow logos and festive Gay™️ designer t-shirts on sale for hundreds of dollars. One clever madlad decided to make a satirical video demonstrating how brands might expect consumers to react to their Pride pandering. Seriously though, what do they expect? Let's see some good deeds when it isn't rainbow flag week and then maybe we can talk.
Certain things about being an adult woman are awesome, but having to go to the gyno? Not so much.

Scroll down for this week's batch of tweets about going to the gyno.
