Did you know you needed a dog petter in your life?

If not, you do now.

The puppy petting machine has been met with mixed results.

Others cited different problems with the machine.

Turns out someone also developed a cat version.

But at least one person really wanted the joke item instead of their actual gift.

I haven't even gotten into how cruel the "justice system" is to survivors of sexual assault, which complicates matters further.

After Redditor maekeyisn't cool asked the online community, "What crimes do you think should have a more serious punishment?" people shared their opinions.

Burgers, fries, peanut butter. Apple pie, hot dogs, cheesesteaks. American food is a big part of our daily lives, but it's not normal for everybody around the globe.

When was the first time you tried sushi? Or the first time you had curry? Have you even been able to try escargot? The world is full of so many fascinating foods, and some of those foods are American--especially to non-Americans.
