    I don’t understand the definition of ASMR, supposedely “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response” and would like to see what they do with these lipstick mixtures. Do they melt them and pour them into molds? Or scoop them into something to store for future use? It’s irrating to see these beautiful and $$$ lippies massacred!

      I think ASMR refers to that tingly feeling one gets at the back of the head and neck when they find something to be especially emotional/pleasurable? (It happens to me when I hear certain songs). But I don’t understand how someone could feel that over watching a lipstick destruction video.

    While I find the playgrounds beautiful and pleasing and have NOTHING against them AT ALL (just to be clear), I can’t help but think of the video that’s been making the rounds on Facebook of the dad who built an “obstacle” course in his backyard out of dumpster wooden pallets for his little girl. She loves it.

    Cracker Barrels…gross…

    I find the destructive lipstick videos disturbing. Maybe it’s because I love makeup so much (“My babies!”)

    I assumed that the couple eating at all of those Cracker Barrels had to be conservative evangelical Christians, but now I think they just might be deluded Midwesterners that think it’s a good little restaurant, “doncha know?”

    I kind of feel bad that I have no idea what a cracker barrel even is…cheese restaurant?

    And there are 645 of them?
