Crowdsourcing Project of the Day: Redditors Launch a Short-Lived Manhunt for The D.C. Navy Yard Shooter
In the wake of today’s fatal shootings at the Washington Navy Yard that left at least a dozen of people dead, several Redditors apparently began organizing a manhunt in an attempt to identify the shooter under the newly launched /r/findnavyyardshooters subreddit, though it was promptly banned from the site after many ignored the community’s only rule which stated “NO PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT LEADS UNLESS YOU’RE REALLY SURE.” While many seem to agree with the site administrator’s decision, reminding themselves of the infamous sleuthing that took place earlier this year during the Boston Marathon bomber manhunt, others on the site have raised questions over whether it was meant to be satirical from the beginning, given the tongue-in-cheek tone of several posts (like this one) that made their way onto the subreddit prior to its removal.

That Awkward Moment of the Day: Father Wears Daisy Dukes to Shame Daughter
Well, this is one way to influence your kid’s style of fashion.

Meanwhile in Norway of the Day: Gender-Specific Eggs for Boys and Girls
Like the rest of Scandinavian countries, Norway is usually known for its progressive-mindedness when it comes to gender equality, yet the country’s leading brand of dairy products Prior has created a minor controversy after unveiling their latest line of gender-branded eggs, dubbed “Princess Eggs” and “Pirate Eggs” for boys and girls respectively and complete with bright pink and dark blue packagings. Despite the ridicule that the products have drawn, Prior’s parent company Nortura defended the decision by saying that they didn’t want to over-think it and simply wanted to get children to eat more eggs.
