AirPods—Apple's signature wireless headphones—are super convenient.

There are no wires to get tangled, the sound is crystal clear and they feature the sleek, efficient design Apple is famous for.

They're also super expensive and super easy to lose.


New Yorker Ashley Mayer learned that the hard way when one of her AirPods fell onto the treacherous Manhattan subway tracks.

What followed was a saga for the ages.


Ashley thought all hope was lost, but the AirPod was in the same spot the next day.

Jumping onto the tracks wasn't an option.

So Mayer got resourceful.

The mission was on, with only a few hiccups.


Though the feat occurred off-camera, Mayer put a wad of duct tape at the end of the broom to retrieve the treasured AirPod.

It worked!

And though some were divided on whether she should put the subway AirPod back in her ear, she couldn't let her efforts be in vain.

Soon, Twitter showered her with congratulations.






Happy listening, Ashley. You deserve it.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

Irrespective of men's sexual identity or preference, there are men who hate sports, and there are men who love musical theater. Do participating in either activity make men straight or gay?
