Awww, why so sad, kitten? Millennials are all depressed and they are filling up psychologists’ offices with crocodile tears and tales of generational hardship. So why all the sadness, kids? One shrink says the spike in depression among twentysomethings isn’t because they’re all self-obsessed narcissists, it’s because their parent were too coddly and they can’t think for themselves! They can’t cope! 30 is the new 18, let’s hope they snap out of it by the time they’re 40. [Slate]

The mighty Bruins trounced the Trojans as UCLA beat USC for the 2nd year in a row, and in the Coliseum for the 1st time since 1997. Trojans were ranked 23rd to the Bruins 22 and were favored to win, but they were absolutely MANHANDLED as Bruin QB Brett Hundley had a phenomenal game. Final score was 35-14. Not to be outdone by UCLA women’s soccer who beat UNC for the 1st time ever in the NCAA quarterfinals. They’ll now play Virginia in the semis on Friday. Great day to be UCLA! The USC UCLA game defied expectations, but did you see the end of the Iron Bowl? One of the craziest rivalries in all of college sports, #1 Alabama and #4 Auburn were tied with 1 second left, but an improbably missed field goal resulted in a 109 yard touchdown run for the Tigers, you have to hear these Auburn announcers lose their mind. Some are calling it one of the greatest plays of all time. Even if you hate sports, this’ll entertain the crap out of you.
What is the greatest revenge you can exact on a total douche nugget who’s acting up on a crowded flight? Live tweet about their rudeness and antics! That’s exactly what Elan Gale did, he even sent the woman some vodka and a pointed note and posted the whole thing in hysterical tweets. You have to read it. Blog me, Amadeus. Thank you Buzzfeed for compiling it all.
1. Los Angeles-based Elan Gale, whose Twitter bio says he’s a producer on ABC’s The Bachelor, began tweeting on Thanksgiving claiming that a woman in his airport was getting testy with airline staff over their delayed flight.
Note: He now has more than 130,000.

That poor Paul Walker from The Fast and the Furious died in a fiery car crash when his friend decided to take him for a joyride to show off his silly Porsche. Walker and his little buddy were burned so badly the LA County coroner couldn’t identify either gentleman who were incinerated in the wreck. Walker also starred in Varsity Blues and some other lesser known projects, but he made millions from the car racing movies. F&F 7 is underworks, obviously no word on how, and if, Paul Walker will be involved. That adorable little marshmallow was 40.
Does the thought of cooking a full Thanksgiving meal make your hairy palms sweat? Don’t worry, sunshine, we’re in the land of opportunity and YOU can eat at a clean and well-stocked restaurant and leave the mess to someone else to scour. A full list of gobblicious restaurants awaits on the blog, so save the money you’d waste on Black Friday and go enjoy someone else’s succulent bird instead.
