I'm the Community Editor at SheKnows. My perfect day would be camped in the middle of nowhere, reading an excellent book and writing something true.

Open Thread: What did you search the internet for this week?

I feel like I'm not giving you the best of my searches, but they've been mild instead of wildly inappropriate. Maybe next week will worse/better in the rabbit hole of the internet matrix.

Search: When two people come up with the same idea independently
Answer: Multiple discovery. I was working on a design request for an article when I saw another outlet had come up with the exact same idea and published it. Editing bummer.

Search: Ragdoll cat
Answer: A breed of cat that apparently has a massive fanbase because the internet loved this video of a Ragdoll cat begging to be slid across the floor by his owner.

Search: Meerkat
Answer: A new app that live streams video. Already ranking above the adorable small carnivoran mammals popularized by Timon in the Lion King.

Search: Do people really have period sex
Answer: Um, yes, and apparently there are all kinds of methods to it. This article from The Cut talks about trying a cervical cap for mess-free fun and it is graphically awesome.

Search: Beard simulator
Answer: Try one. I don't know. I was having a moment.

From the editors:

Search: Why do celebrities insure their body parts?
Answer: Basically it doesn't make any sense, but if you want to know what body part is worth what, check out our slideshow on it.
