The dude map: How Americans refer to their bros “It seems safe to report that dude has supplanted totally as the word most often uttered by American youth,” claimed Richard Hill in his 1994 paper on the history of the word “dude.” That might be true, but as it turns out, “dude” is more popular in some parts of the United States than others. In other areas of the country, people say “pal,” “buddy,” and other colloquial vocatives—nouns that usually refer to a person. The map above shows the geographical concentration of a few such words. If you click the buttons, you’ll notice that “dude” is the most widespread. Others are heavily concentrated in particular regions, like “pal” in the north.

But magazines tend to be pricey, and not very eco-friendly.

Shea Butter Lotions, Products - Moisturize Dry Skin Shea butter has been around forever — and for good reason. This serious hydrator has been used for centuries to moisturize skin (and hair, too). It's essentially a triglyceride (a fatty acid) that’s crushed out of the nut of the African shea tree, then heated up in large vats, so that the softening oils make their way to the top. Unlike other butters, shea butter quickly emulsifies when it hits the skin and is subtly warmed up from an elevated body temperature — that's why it effortlessly seeps into the skin, and doesn’t rest on the surface. Not only is it a superstar skin softener, it also helps heal and calm skin, thanks to essential nutrients such as omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid. What's more, it acts as an emollient and has anti-inflammatory properties (perfect for sensitive skin prone to irritation).

1970s Men’s Fashion Ads You Won’t Be Able To Unsee The 1970s must have taken place on a different planet. These photos of men’s fashions from that decade leave us drowning in astounding mustard knits, garish patterns, high waists, way-too-skimpy briefs, and other fashion faux pas that defy description 40 years later. As synthetics fell in price, casual menswear was suddenly available to many young men looking to cut loose. Since polyester doesn’t require ironing, the “wash and wear” revolution is in full view of these models with their skin-tight threads.

10 Supergroups That Were Less Than the Sum of Their Parts This week sees the release of Amok, the debut album by Thom Yorke’s much-heralded Atoms for Peace project. The album sets Yorke with an unlikely cast of collaborators: Flea, long-time producer Nigel Godrich, REM drummer Joey Waronker, and a Brazilian multi-instrumentalist by the name of Mauro Refosco. They’re a supergroup, basically, no matter how much Yorke decries the term. And like many supergroups, they prove less than the sum of their parts — getting the idea of putting a bunch of successful musicians together to work is more difficult than it seems.
