Ikea’s U.S. division is raising the minimum wage for thousands of its retail workers, pegging it to the cost of living in each location, instead of its competition.

The 17% average raise, expected to be announced Thursday, is the Swedish ready-to-assemble furniture chain’s biggest in 10 years in the U.S.

The pay increase will take effect Jan. 1, 2015. It will translate to an average wage of $10.76 an hour, a $1.59 increase from the previous $9.17.

Queen: I’m going I want cake 

Chief of Staff:


Chief of Staff: 

Queen: I want cake

I had my doubts, but apparently this really happened.

NEW VIDEO! It’s time for…

Summertime Science!!

This week I ventured out into the scorching heat of Austin in July to look at why we sweat, why we get sunburned, and why our fingers get all wrinkled when we go swimming. I had to go swimming and get a watermelon sno-cone for this video… the sacrifices I make for my videos, eh?

I would also like to note that the thumbnail is in no way photoshopped.

An earlier version of this video had an error in it, so I re-uploaded it. That means you’ll have to watch it again and reblog it again and love it again :)
