A New Jersey mom named Patricia Krentcil (above) has been arrested and charged with child endangerment after bringing her five-year-old daughter into a tanning booth. Apparently, the daughter’s kindergarten teacher noticed “severe” sunburns after the child complained of discomfort. …HOLY SHIT! More
Australia’s melanoma rates are the highest in the world, with 1,200 deaths a year. Round after round of public health campaigns have urged locals to use sunscreen, wear hats and avoid sun during the hottest parts of the day.

What do men want you to wear? High heels, a tank top, and skinny jeans. Should you? Don’t be ridiculous.

“Tanning is my everything because it makes me really happy. Whenever I’m sad or upset going tanning going tanning just makes me perk right up.”
On one hand, I hear these reports and think “these people are nuts” but then I always have a moment where I wish I had something that could make me instantaneously happy. Something weird. Please help me come up with things, that will preferably not turn me orange. More
Thanks to Snooki, we all know that President Obama and his evil administration are out to prevent us all from getting that healthy, orange glow for which the little Jersey Shore star is famous.
