+ You'll never have the embarrassment of leaving your zipper down in front of friends or coworkers again. A tech company has developed a pair of smart pants that can detect when the fly is unzipped and notify you via phone. Cool, but where's the app that makes it acceptable to wear no pants?

Advice of the Day:

"I've learned not to let it be the end of the world if a boy doesn't like you. I used to put so much effort into boys. I started playing guitar because I wanted to impress this boy. Then, I ended up in love with guitar and I didn't care about the boy anymore." —Ellie Goulding
