It’s called ‘Troll Trump’ for a reason.

When in the heat of battle, a true Jujitsu master uses her attacker’s energy against himself in order to gain a competitive advantage. It appears like the Hillary Clinton campaign is doing just that by using Donald Trump’s Twitter game against him. The Clinton campaign has just released a new fundraising tool called “Troll Trump” where supporters can pledge to donate money every time Trump tweets.

The signup also comes with a message to the Republican Party nominee.

“Hey Donald,

I pledge to donate ____ to Hillary’s campaign every time you tweet because I’m sick and tired of your hateful comments about the American people.

Happy tweeting!”

Don’t worry about going broke if Trump goes on a 3 a.m. tirade against a former Miss Universe or an old contestant on The Apprentice, you can set daily donation limits. But those who sign up should plan accordingly, according to Twitter Counter, Trump has tweeted 499 times over the past 30 days with an average of 16.6 tweets per day. The idea for the campaign is believed to have come from former Buzzfeed editor, Matt Bellassai, who once joked he was going to donate to the Clinton campaign every time Trump sent out a tweet.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
