The 5 Most Spectacular Landscapes on Earth (That Murder You) Mother Nature is an evil bitch that wants us dead. We know this, we accept it, we try to burn one plant a day as petty revenge against her for it and we move on with our lives. But sometimes her traps are so unsubtle, so obviously, blatantly designed to do nothing but murder human beings in the most awful ways possible that we can't help but stand and applaud her sheer balls.

In that spirit, here are five of Mother Nature's more vicious bear traps: #5.

How to Write a Professional Bio For Your Social Media Profiles. Talking about yourself is hard. Doing it in 160 characters or less is even harder. That’s probably why so many of us end up stressed about crafting the perfect professional bio for Twitter – or LinkedIn, Facebook or other social networks.

It has to set you apart, but still reflect approachability. Make you look accomplished, but not braggy. All that in just a few sentences? In this post, we’ll go over the universal principles of a great social media bio – regardless of the network. Six rules for a foolproof bio “Not that the story need be long, but it will take a long while to make it short.” – Henry David Thoreau Yes, a bio on social media needs to be brief – and that can be tricky.
