The dad bod, explained.
The youth of America have been whispering about something they call the “dad bod” for years, trading definitions on Urban Dictionary and presenting photographic evidence on Total Frat Move. But it wasn’t until last month—when 19-year-old Clemson University sophomore Mackenzie Pearson published the explanatory essay “Why Girls Love The Dad...

+Amanda Hess​​ this sounds suspiciously like code for girls being attracted to older men, the thing that dare not speak its name in the modern political correctness regime.

I know your article talks about guys at college, but "dad bod" ?

I'm surprised you didn't address that.

Inside Amy Schumer: season three reviewed.
The third season of Inside Amy Schumer opens with a musical number. “Milk, Milk, Lemonade” is a spoof of booty anthems starring Amy Schumer herself, with an assist by the impressively proportioned model Amber Rose, and it serves as a reminder that butts don’t just serve as a focal point...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has a new trailer. 
Almost six months after the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens gave us our first look at Episode VII, the new trailer is here, and it was worth the wait. “The force is strong in my family,” we hear Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker say, as we see a...

Mad Men season 7, part 2, episode 2, recapped by Slate's TV Club.
Dear John and Julia, The waitress is a keeper! Julia, you thought they had no real chemistry. I thought she was just a one-off socialist prop. It turns out they were destined for each other. Diana, the itinerant waitress from Racine, Wisconsin, is a female variation of Dick Whitman: on...

I think he is longing for something real, just not a roll in the haystack. It was pretty sad when he went over her apt probably looking for some nookie but it wasn't for the reason something shallow. I believe he is honestly trying to find something genuine and honest in his life. but instead, she admits to having abandoned her other child with her father. She was in a pathetic state of mind of course vodka helping out and really was not into Don as she admitted. She needed an escape from her pain and Don saw that.

Diets do not work: the thin evidence that losing weight makes you healthier.
If you’re one of the 45 million Americans who plan to go on a diet this year, I’ve got one word of advice for you: Don’t. You’ll likely lose weight in the short term, but your chance of keeping if off for five years or more is about the same...

Watch March Madness live online.
All 67 games of this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament will be streamed live online. But not all of them will be available to people without a cable subscription—unless you get a little creative. The 22 games that will be broadcast on CBS will be streamed live for free to...

Last night's Mad Men was the best episode yet of the final half of the series.
Now that’s what I call an episode. For the past two weeks, I’ve been grumbling about Mad Men jogging in place when I wanted it to be sprinting to the finish line. To borrow a phrase, this episode was fired out of a cannon. I need a glass of Chateau...

The Boston Marathon finish was absolutely nuts.
Kenya’s Caroline Rotich outsprinted Mare Dibaba of Ethiopia to claim victory in a dramatic finish to the Boston Marathon on Monday. You can watch Rotich power ahead of Dibaba in the last 100 yards of the race, with the two runners having gone neck and neck down Boylston Street until...

Twitter's new home page: will it appeal to non-Tweeters?
Twitter.com is a barren wasteland. I should qualify that statement. For the roughly 20 percent of American adults who maintain active Twitter accounts, the site is an overflowing river of wry observations, edifying links, and up-to-the-second dispatches from around the world. But they’re the minority. For the vast bulk of...

Game of Thrones season 5 review: The show is at its best when it diverges from the books completely. 
This Sunday, Game of Thrones returns to HBO with masked assassins, warrior-eunuchs, caged dragons, and a very creepy witch in the woods. Conspiracies are explained, intrigues advanced, prophecies cast, alliances scrambled. Just 14 minutes pass before the first instance of gratuitous nudity, and then only one more before the season’s...

I kind of agree. I have read all the books and wonder why I should watch so many hours of he same story I already know.

Here's how to win your NCAA pool.
A version of this article originally ran in 2009. In 2010, our advice to bet on Duke paid off when the Blue Devils won the title. Our suggestions to pick Texas in 2011 and Ohio State in 2012 did not go quite as well. (The Buckeyes at least made the Final Four.) Our 2013 pick, the Florida...
