Smart Living Is This Dog Cute or Is This Dog Terrifying?
How this mom's 'terrifying' postpartum depression turned her into an activist
She launched an app that helps teens deal with suicidal thoughts and mental health issues. Two years ago, Nicole Zimmerman was a new mom who should have been basking in the joys of first-time motherhood and cuddling her newborn son.That wasn't the case, to her dismay."I had postpartum depression after the birth of my son," she told Megyn Kelly TODAY. "It was a terrifying experience. Having no sense of control of what your body is going through — all I wanted to do was get help and protect my son and enjoy my son and enjoy my life."I wanted to seek help so I could be better for him.
My freshman year of college, an enterprising student with access to a color printer made imitation lost dog posters that showed a picture of their friend's face superimposed on a dog's torso, and posted them all over campus. The resulting image was deeply disturbing and has haunted me to this day.
So you can imagine my confusion, then, when I look at this actual dog that looks eerily human and think to myself, "hey, that's a cute dog!"
Tell me this doesn't look like a person.
The dog's name is Yogi and he is extremely polarizing. Adevoted to Yogi's uncanny resemblance to a human man offers a case study on the uncanny valley (or as one commenter it in this case, the "uncanine valley"). Much of the debate centers on whether it's his almond-shaped eyes or his pouty lip that makes Yogi look so much like a grimacing, middle-aged man. Me? I think it's the lip.
Nobody Ever Believes I Bought This Velvet Couch For $349 at Walmart
Every time a new person walks into my apartment, they ask me the same exact question: "OMG, where did you get your couch?"What makes this pick a major winner is that it also converts into a twin bed, so guests can have a comfortable place to sleep. I have already had a few people stay the night and comment on how pleasantly they rested. The design itself is classic; I was impressed by the little details, like the tufted cushions and Victorian legs. The fabric is an imitation velvet that looks convincingly real. I also prefer the material because it doesn't absorb liquid or leave stains behind.
