The Daily Word

If you're also wondering "who the f*ck builds a stonehenge," the answer may not be as mysterious as you think. But until someone builds a time machine and travels to the past, who really knows?

Today marks The European Day of Parks, a cause for celebration and appreciation of the region's protected natural places. Find that last bit of inspiration needed for a European adventure in these stunning photos.

Works by the forever anonymous and controversial artist Banksy are lent by private collectors and shown at a gallery in Rome.

Governor Martinez is one Burqueña who will neither support nor protest the Albuquerque Trump rally. The reason? She's “really busy.”

Venezuelans, furious about food shortages and inflation, protest against President Maduro on the streets of Caracas.

Don't fear trans people in bathrooms, fear diaper changing stations. Learn from this woman's mistake and remember to put the table back up.

People will no longer be jailed if they aren't able to pay court fines in Colorado Springs.

Millennials are so _________.

By white men, for white men.”

If you don a sombrero, a fake mustache or utter “Cinco de Drinko” today (or ever) please don't talk to me.

This doctor said the hospital she works at told her not to talk about abortions with her patients.

David Cameron respects Donald Trump. I think we can agree that the UK and the US are in the shitter right now.

This feminist artist makes jabs at famous artists.
